Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 March 1851
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Empire. SIR,-The letter of your correspondent ARTHUR, published in your paper of the 15th instant, hus just been pointed out to me, and although the marked discourtesy of its tone* would justify my leaving it unnoticed, I will not do so, ns he lins raised some questions that it is desirable that I should address myself to-and besides his in- tentions appear good. He is, I am willing to believe, one who would do good service in the cause of Liberty if he could ; but this is hopeless, as his pen is powerless, and he bas not sufficient discrimination to know who or what to attack, were it otherwise. I AUTHUR is wrong everywhere ;-wrong in sup- posing that the soTo object of my letter was to I re-establish the prosperity of the squatters, whom I be most strangely confounds with the holders of purchased lands within the boundaries of location. My starting points were, Aro the purchased grazing properties worth possession ? Can such hinds ever...

THE EMPIRE. TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 1851. IRRESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT— ITS CONSEQUENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 March 1851
TUESDAY,-MAli CH 4, 18ßl. IRRESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT. ITS CONSEQUENCES. TRULY, versatility is not one of our national characteristics. Hight or wrong, we stick to our opinions with undying pertinacity. While other nations are changing their Governments as we change our coats, we look on unmoved, save now and then, when some pretty smart fillip reminds as that we are not travelling quite so fast as other people, and,.if we do not wish to bo trampled upon, that we must at least make an effort to keep up with the. times. The countryman of the Roman poet, who is waiting while the river is flowing by, is no bad type of honest i John Bull calmly awaiting the great tide of human progress. Nor does it appear that external cir cumstances have a very potent influence j upon thc national character. We change our skies, but we do not change our habits. We leavo clouds and discontent behind us, but our new horizon is still overcast. Our old day-dreams of social happiness are still unrealised ; the...

THE WORKING- CLASSES OP GREAT BRITAIN. Their present condition, and the means of their improvement and Elevation. A Prize Essay, By the Rev. Samuel G. Green, A.B. CIIAi'. VIII.-TllE PRESS. (Continued from our last.) The style in which tho working man should be addressed through the press, should of course bo characterized by simplicity. Lot writers but think clearly, and straightforwardly say, tho thought that is in them ; and they will not have to complain of not being understood by the com- mon people. Our Saxon, Bible English contains a far more copious supply of words than some, who havo not fairly tried its'capabilities, might bo ready to suspect. Not, indeed, that any arbitrary rules is to be laid down. Sjme writers havo more of the Saxon mind than others, and, therefore, more of the Saxon phrase. An nffocta tion of this dialect is very bud. And now and then there seems to prevail a kind of cant about it, somewhat to bo discountenanced. ' Other things being equal, it will be t...

THE COUNCIL OP THE AUSTRULASIAN LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 5 March 1851
I THE COUNCIL OP THE AUSTIU 1 LASIAN LEAGUE. TOE Melbourne Council of Nine had, at our last dates, commenced operations by the appointment of officers,, and the enactment of rules, for their gui- dance. The Mayor, for the time being, had been appointed president, Mr. West- garth, secretary, and Mr. W. M. Bell, treasurer ; officers for the Council were aboutbeing taken in à central part of the town; a deputation was appointed to visit Geelong, and Delegates elected to attend a Conference of the Colonies, to be held probably in Sydney. A deal of dissatis- faction existed, judging from the news- papers, at the composition of the Council, which is said to consist of one English- man, two Irishmen, and six Scotchmen. The election of the body, however, took place on the principle of universal suffrager and with the ballot. We doubt not, in spite of all these little differences, that the Council of the Victorian League, with its respectable exchequer, will do us valuable service in effecti...
