THE EMPIRE. THURSDAY, MARCH 6, 1851. THE POLICE OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 6 March 1851
THE EMPIRE. THURSDAY, MARCH ü, 1801. THE POLICE OFFICE. IT is not often that wc visit thc Police Office ; but we never go anywhere, with- out looking well about us. In spending a few hours with Mr. Hill at this fashion- able place on Friday last, we had leisure and ample opportunities to observe, not only tho talent, erudition, and dignity displayed in the grave potentates, but the discipline and order enforced in the duti- ful underlings of tho establishment. We never were great book-worms ; tho way of picking up knowledge which some rhytustev ov playwright (we will get thc name from Mr. Hill,) sung about, in thc dawn of English liberty, has always been a favourite way of ours. We have genc I rally found our " sermons in stones;" and j gleaned our political lessons from tho ! stubble-fields of social life. We aro self I willed, singular-natured, Hill-over scrambling creatures; not having tho I smallest admiration for Picnics, and caring nothing for thc objurgatory ex- cellencies of...

JAMES SEA, Esq., the highly respected Manager of the Union Bank of Australia, expired last evening, at his residence, in Hunter-street after a painful and protracted &nbsp; illness. Few members of this community have lived more generally esteemed, and perhaps none will be more sincerely lamented in death than Mr. SEA, whose affable deportment, charitable disposition, and sterling inte- grity, will receive the heart-felt testimony of all who knew him.

THE WORKING CLASSES OF GREAT BRITAIN. Their present condition, and thc means of their improvement and Elevation. A Prize Essay. By the Rev. Samuel G. Green, A.B. CHAP. IX. - HINTS TO WORKING PEOPLE. (Continued from our last.) The SAVINGS' BANK is another very certain means by which you can economise your means, and secure, to some extent, your pecuniary inde- pendence. Whether it is to he preferred to the Friendly Society I will not stay to decide. Somo would incline to the latter, because the support is forthcoming there only at the time ot need ; whereas the opportunity of drawing money from the bank is often so tempting that they might be induced to do so without necessity, and thus lose the real benefit. Then the advantage of the friendly society begins at once ; that of the savings' bank is not felt, until the sum deposited has become large. There is force in these reasons. &nbsp; But then, on tho other hand, the money in ihe Bank is your own. There is a sense of proper...
Before the Police Magistrate, and Mr. M'Lerie. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 8 March 1851
Before tho Police Magistrate, and Mr. M'Lerio. WAGES.-John Terry Hughes was summoned by John Brown, a labouring man, for £21 13s. 4d., being the balance of eighteen months' wages due to the latter for servitude. Ii. appears that ho had .entered into tho service of defendant in 1847, at a salary of £25 per annum, and continued in it until the'28th of January, 1851 ; during which thilba ^running account was kept, the payments having been mndo indiscriminately and at differ- ent times. After the first agreement had ex- pired, it seems that a second had been entered into, making tho money payable quarterly. No regular settlement had beou made, or any hillanco struck, until January lust, when a creditor and debtor account was made out by a Mr. Connor, a clerk in the em ploy ment of Mr. Hughes, and a memorandum of tho result, (being tho sum above mentioned), was hnnded over to the complainant. It was upon thia document that tho information chiefly rested. Mr. Dowling ¡n tho outset advised...

But the atmosphere was heavily charged with vapour, and I could make out nothing like land. » Even the old hands thought we must ' have been mistaken about Cape Farewell. The captain looked "glum," and Bacchus, Whose familiarity with the localities had sud- denly increased his importance, began to doubt seriously whether we were a!I right. It was blowing fresh from the northward, and we were close hauled on the larboard tack, with a heavy sea on, Eight bills sounded, and we went below to breakfast; but before it was half over, thc ominous cry was heard, All hands ( bout ship.'
