Original Oorroapondonco. To the Editor of The Empire. Sin,-The imporlnnt question of a regular and peruuvieiit supply of htbutir i.» now engaging tho serious attention of some of our leading men. Great, djffiçulty exists in agreeing upon a practical ' scheme for the encouragement ot free emigration to this colony... Every man has his plan, and his bobby:, and naturally gives the greatest pro- minence 'to his own particular view. But this question of labour is a national question ; and cun only be satisfactorily solved in a national point oí view and by general consent.of the com- munity, expressed through its legal organs, the representatives of the people. When our new Legislature shall have been called into existence, let a determined effort be made to obtain the ex- clusive control of our waste lands. Until this be done, no really beneficial measures can be looked for. So long as it is in the power of a distant authority to play ducks and drakes with our internal resources, it is...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. The many correspondents who have sent us I anecdotes of Mr. George Hill, must accept this one general excuse for not publishing them. Such publication could not contribute to the edifi- cation of our readers, and might possibly be interpreted as an evidence of a feeling of spite, which in reality has no existence with us.

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. CHAP. IX— HINTS TO WORKING PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 5 March 1851
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. CHAP. IX. - HINTS TO WORKING rEOFLB. SOME time back I quoted a popular proverb to show its falsehood : " Every one for himself, and God for us all." A kindred aphorism, however, enshrines the highest truth: "God helps them that helps themselves." And men will help them, too. Self-reliance, whether in an individual or a class, is the great condition of progress and success. Hitherto I have spoken chiefly of the duty of others to working men ; but now, if they will listen, I would say a word or two upon their duties to themselves. Remember, above all, I would urge upon them, that you nre not dependent for your virtue or your happiness upon the arrival of some new state of things, which is to make you all you wish to be at once ; nor!need you be a slave to the evils and imperfections of our present social condition. A true man...
THE EMPIRE. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 1851. JUVENILE DEPRAVITY. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 5 March 1851
THE EMPIRE. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 1851. JUVENILE DEPRAVITY". JUVENILE Depravity ! Truly, it is a strangely-sounding and incongruous phrase. Of all the meaningful expressions to which our (too) highly civilized, railway-progres- sive, march-of-intellcct Nineteenth Cen- tury has given currency, there is none of more ominous and terrible significance tlian this one. Our simple-hearted grand- fathers would have been startled by the combination of those two words. They would have stoutly affirmed that it in- volved a contradiction in terms; for that by no possibility could the idea of ju- venility be coupled with that of depravity. They, would have declared that to the most prosaic of mortals the word "ju- venile" is a sort of talisman which calls up remembrances of healthiness, innocence, and happiness,-of vernal fancies and de- lightful day-dreams,-of ' Life's morning march when the spirit'was young, when to the unworn, sinless percep- tions, all nature seem'd pervaded by a spirit of gla...
PORT PHILLIP. (From papers received yesterday.) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 5 March 1851
PORT PHILLIP. (From papers received yesterday.) HORRIBLE DEATH.-Tua LATE BUSH FIRES.-On Saturday an inquest was held at the St. George and Dragon, Lonsdale-street, I befare W. B. Wilmot, Esq., J. P., coroner for the district, upon the body of a poor fellow I named Edward Dodswell, one of the many I sufferers in purse and person by the late de- structive bush fires. The body, which was lying in the dead-house of the Melbourne Hospital, presented a frightful spectacle, so much so that several of the jurors nearly fainted whilst performing that most unplea- sant operation, viewing the body. The fol- lowing evidence was adduced :-John Small wood, carrier, residing at Yass, in the middle district, deposed-The deceased was my mate and travelled with me ; myself and mate went to the Plenty about five weeks since to get our bullocks up a little with the feed ; whilst we were staying on the Plenty river nt its head, the fires came dowa upon us from the mountain ; in a short time we were in t...
