LIGHTNING CONDUCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 January 1851
LIGHTNING CONDUCTORS. NUiMEitous as aro tho ncoitlonts by light- ning in this colony, it is astonishing that no provision whatever is niaclo in tho way of prevention. Scarcely a thunderstorm takes placo, that ia not rendered memo- rable by somo nppalling and sudden death. Tho city of Sydney, in particular, can hear am plo testimony to tho melancholy fact. During tho last few months, within tho limits of thia city, somo half-dozon human boinga have benn smitten down in our midst, by oleotrioity. And what ÎB still moro singular, these accidents gene- rally occur in bouses or in places where tho greatest security should prevail, Naturally considered, this fact is not sur- prising, for we all know, that lightning, from its nature, is attracted by elevated objects, particularly when thoso objects contain iron or any other metoUic sub- stance j but the wonder is, that no effort has been made to introduce Lightning Conductors among us-the only means which Science has revealed, for the pro-...

Contributions to Australian Literature. [THE articles which will from timo to timo appear in TUE EMPIRE, under tho above head, will bo written exclusively by Natives of tho colony.] PROFESSOR LONGFELLOW AND HIS POETRY.

Many of our readers have perhaps heard that Longfellow has somewhat in him of transcendentalism, but it is just enough merely to touch somo of his thoughts and holiels with di carny aerial lights of surpassing benuty, mid which fall froni a horizon seldom within tho view of tho hulk of ordinary men.

BRITISH COLONIZATION. NO. III. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 January 1851
BRITISH COLONIZATION. NO. III. THE comparative merits of the several dependencies of Great Bri tain j as fields for colonization, have been warmly and repeatedly debated; and although our limits forbid us to enter into dotails, it may not be uninteresting to glance at the more prominent features which each Colony exhibits. Practically, tho choice of tho emigrant lies between Canada, tho Cape of Good Hope, and Australasia ; for, if wo except tho fisheries of Newfoundland, our posses- sions on tho eastern coast of America present but little attraction, as yet, either to tho labourer or to tho capitalist. The rigour of their climato, and tho denso forests which cover tho surface of tho soil, tho value of which boars but a small re- lation to their extent, will, for a length of time to come, provent any material in- crease, by means of immigration, in thc population of thoso regions : and it is a probable consequence of tho discovery of tho mineral riches of California, that tho western...

MORETON BAY, MEETING OF THE ADVOCATES OP SEPA RATION AND THE INTRODUCTION OF PRISONERS. . # (Abridged from the Moreton Bay Courier.) PERSONS favour«6Ie to the above object began to muster in considerable strength ii Brisbane as the day approached for whicl their meeting was announced. The meeting was to have been held in Mr. Powers's nev house in Queen-street, but in consequence o some anticipated obstruction to the procaed ings, it was finally arranged that one of tin large rooms in the Old Barrack should bi used for the occasion. There, accordingly, t numerous and highly respectable assemblage appeared at twelve o'clock. It was distinctly understood that (with the exception of the representatives of the Press) no persons were to be present who did not approve of the pe- tition praying for exiles, and no expression of dissent from the proceedings, would be allowed. The whole of tho company were therefore favourable to the measure ta be proposed for adoption, and that company con- s...

DOMESTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 20 January 1851
DOMESTIC. ANOTHER DAILY?-Circumstances have transpired which render the projected ap- pearance of the " Daily News'' a matter of more of mesmeric speculation than of real con- clusion. Individuals gifted with the powers of seeing through a stone wal), peeping through a month of Sundays, and so forth, may probably catch a glimpse of their " 'first leader." Ordinary mortals, however, are not in possession of such visual capabilities. Mr. Cuthill, commonly called Dr. Cuthill, has munificently presented ¿£50 to the direc- tors of the Sydney Infirmary, towards the establishment of a lying-in ward to he at- tached to that excellent institution. This surely is an example worthy of imitation.
