Before the Police Magistrate, [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 10 March 1851
Before tl)e Police Magistrate, SnocKiNG DEPRAVITY, - A labouring: 01,10 named Thomas Hancey, was brought up on Thurs- day, on the charge of having violated the person of his own daughter Jane Hancey, a girl about fourteen years of age. The offence was first com- mitted iii December, and was last repeated on the 25th ultimo; the repetitions according to the girl's testimony being as many as "ten." The prisoner is a married man ; but it is clear from the testimony of the girl that his manner of living was extremely loose, and that consequently the bringing up of the family was stained by some of the worst incidents of an irregular life. Amoug other unfortunate circumstances, it appears the mother was suffering imprisonment both before and after the incest was first committed a fact which of course facilitated to some extent the father's design. The wretched man en- deavoured to preserve the secrecy of the crime by threatening to beat the girl if she should "say anything about it"; and...

REVIEW. REPRESENTATIVE MEN — SEVEN LECTURES [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 10 March 1851
REVIEW REPRESENTATIVE MEN-SEVEN LECTURES By R. W. Emerson. THIS is an extraordinary book by an extra- ordinary writer. Both one and the other nre far beyond the average : both are the antipodes of common-place. Yet, it is a book for every- day people, and on a common topic. Every reader feels it is a book for him : it comes home to every man's business and bosom ; as Bacon expressed it. And it is a book which no man cnn read without having his opinions modified or influenced in some de- gree. Tlie writings of Emerson are eminently thought-exciting, and none of them more so than the present work. It is a most signifi- cant sign of the times to find books of this class taking their places amongst " Popular Libraries," and " Shilling Volumes for all Headers." The distinguishing characteristic of all Emerson's writings is Originality. He is emphatically an original man. But he is original because he is a man. He believes that every man has his own place and work assigned bim in the univ...

THE EMPIRE. MONDAY, MARCH IQ, 1851. - CALI i^OIi NI A, THE SYDNEY HERALD, AND THE SYDNEY PEOPLE. Mus. GAMP of the Sydney press continues loud in her denunciations of this unhappy region of gold. She raises her voice in an admonitory whine against the " blind- ness of us Sydney folk,"-the ingratitude of the labouring class, to conic out hore at the expense of the colony, and then re- ship themselves fora more acceptable soil, the infatuation of thc government in not at once putting a stop to such shameful practices, and much moro of the same tenor, worthy of so reputable and gar- rulous an old lady. Unfortunately for the petticoated guardian, her diatribes appear to bc bootless; wc Sydney folk continue as blind, thc labouring classes as ungrate- ful, and the government as infatuated as ever. Wc aro afraid that thero is one rather strong feature of the case which our venerable friend has left altogether out of view. Thero is a certain leaven of stubbornness in our English character, w...
