THE CONTINENT. FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 12 March 1851

THE CONTINENT. FHA NCR. PA ms, Friday Evening.-Thc funds im- proved n little to-dny m consequence of the belief entertained that means will bc found to prevent wnr in Germany. It appears that Prussia refused to make concessions in the belief that she would have at least the moral support of the French Cabinet, and that this opinion hud been strengthened liv the lan- guage ol' M. ¡h: !Vi'«'::My. M. ik' Luhitte remonstrated strongly with the President of the Republic; whose name M. de Persigny hadused, and eyen threatened to resign. All his colleagues having backed his remon- strances, a note was sent to the Prussian Cabinet, modifyiug the language of M. de Persigny. The affair in the Ardeche, which was rather pompously announced yesterday evening by the Bulletin de Paris, turns out to have been of little imoortauee. One of the rioters, however, was killed. I understand that the leaders of the ma- jority have agreed to offer no opposition to the demand for the Presidential dotation. G...

THE ELECTION OF RECTOR FOR GLAS- GOW UNIVERSITY took place on Friday, and in our impression of last week we gave a telegraphic statement of the votes. The event is thus described by a local paper (the Courant.) The candidates were Viscount Palmerston and Mr. Sheriff Alison. The Foreigh Secretary was, of course, supported by the whole force of the Liberal party in the University, while the Conservatives were equally enthusiastic in favour of the His- torian of Europe. For several days the walls of the city had been covered with bills, setting forth the claims of the respective can- didates ; and we are compelled to add, that   some of those productions did credit neither to the taste nor to the literary attainments of   the alumni. All around the region of the university, and the streets lending to it, large         bills were posted up with the words, " Vote   for Alison." The Liberal party di...

AN ENGLISH MAYOR. (It is unnecessary to point out the contrast.) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 12 March 1851

AN ENGLISH MAYOR. (lt is unnecessary to point out the contrast.) Richard Andrews, the present Mayor of Southampton', will rank amongst the most distinguished of Hampshire worthies. He is a remarkable instance of wealth, rank, and influence, to which a man of the most humble origin can attain in this country solely by in- dustry, skill, and probity. Twenty-five years ugo the present chief magistrate of one of the most distinguished and rising towns ia tire ' empire, was a village blacksmith. He carne to Southampton about that period, anil .worked as a journeyman smith to a carriage builder. Here he obtained an insight into the manufacture of carriages. After saving a few pounds by strict frugally, he set up business in a back street. His skill soon be- came known, and he was soon enabled to live in the High-street, and, after some years, to build a splendid carriage bazaar and manu- factory. Ile now sends carriages to all parts of the United Kingdom and the world, a id regularly empl...

THE GREAT EXHIBITION OF 1851. (From the Morning Chronicle, Nov. 26.) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 13 March 1851

THE GREAT EXHIBITION OF 1851. (From thc Morning Chronicle, Nov. 2G.) The accounts which continue to reach us from all parts of the country are such as to prove that the desire manifested for some time past, on the part of the working classes, to witness the Great Exhibition, has not been a merely ephemersl one. New societies of working men continue still to be formed in different parts of the country, while to those which have been some time in existence ac- cessions of members are constantly . being made, and the subscriptions regularly and punctually pnid up. The facilities to be afforded to the working classes in visiting London hove been decided upon by upwards of thirty railway compnnies, including amona them the whole of the lines hnving n London terminus. The charges proposed, though probably not so low ns ninny of the more snnguine friends of the working classes might have desired, show, however, ii desire on the part of the railway managers, so fnr ns they consider consiste...

To tin Editor of The Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 13 March 1851

To tin Editor of The Empire. SIR,-Tho age of prosecutions for libel, is always, on examination, found to bo nu ago of t.vrany, and there have boen only few instances, in which the practice has been resorted to by men vi p uv virtue, and hearty zeal for tho public goo-.i. The reason is, not s'o mncli that such pro- secutions are, on an abstract principle, wrong, ns that they operate with deadly effect whero they ought not, and rarely produce,'in the public mind, any conviction which is to thc advantage of tho prosecutor. As a general rule, those prosecutions are more characterised by tho spirit of revenge than those instituted against any other species ot' delinquency, and thus become themselves morally I'rimiuul in a very high degree, lt may bc fairly doubted, whether'a criminu! prosecution for libel 1 ".vas ever instituted in any ether ?pirit than that of revenge, History tells some awful tales on this subject, which it would be wise for our lawyers, judges, and juries, both specia...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor oj thc Empire.

And the aggregation of this same wealth and power-Tho rightof Society," &c. By omitting tho period and several succeeding words, any, idea contained was of course utterly lost. As wo cannot, without pain, si'o our bantling strangled, feeble and rickety though it be, I irust yon will allow mo to show that there was some meaning in tho passago nndor notice.

PORT PHILLIP. WHO SAID DR. LANG WAS TO BE THE DELEGATE? [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 13 March 1851

PORT PHILLIP. WHO SAID DR. LANG WAS TO BE THE DELEGATE ? The last cry of the Herald and Daily News on the subject, is, that the Rev. Dr. Lang, M.C., is to be appointed. Common sense tnight have showu that a Council elected in Melbourne only eight days since could not possibly have communicated with Dr. Lang in Sydney on such a subject, and it would not have required any great exercise of thought to have made the discovery that if it was wished to have Dr. Lang on the list of candidates, a more remote date than the 10th instant would have been fixed upon for re- ceiving applications, seeing that without the usc of the electric telegraph his being there was a moral impossibility. But what has common s3iise to do with the desire to get up " a good cry ?" Our contempo- raries thought thnt if it was not Dr. Lang was sent, it would¿ probably be somebody nuite ns little to their fancy. And when we say, which we do advisedly, that it never entered into the head of' any member of the Council...
