TEXTILE MANUFACTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 13 March 1851

TEXTILE MANUFACTURES. ' The Various branches of textile manufacture have their principal seats in several distinct localities in the provinces. Leicestershire is famous for its woollen, Nottinghamshire for its cotton, and Derbyshire for its silk hosiery. Woollen cloths are made in Yorkshire, cotton goods in Lancashire, and parts of Cheshire, «bc, «fcc. The cotton manufacture is at present chiefly carried on by the factory system, and the making of silk and cloth goods partially so, whilst woollen and cotton hosiery is produced mainly by the labours of handloom weavers. Under the opera- tion of tho factory system, as in Manchester, there is a fair amount of comfort existing, as long ns trade is prosperous. But the fluctuations in the demand for labour are so great, that no two extremes could be found more striking than those presented in the home of a factory operative when in,full employment, and by the same home when the mills ure closed through the slackness of 'trade. The general...

THE WORKING CLASSES OP GREAT BRITAIN. APPENDIX. (Continued from Monday, March 10.) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 13 March 1851

THE WORKING CLASSES OP GREAT é ! ' BRITAIN. By the Rev. Samuel G. Green, A.B. APPENDIX. ( Continued from Monday, March IO.) The other departments of industrial pursuits connected with clothing1 are affected similarly by the operation of the slop system, though not to the same extent. The price received for his labour bv the hatter, the bootmaker; &e., averages some- thing higher than that paid to the operative tailor. The foregoing facts *ro illustrative of the workings of the system in the metropolis ; but it must not be supposed that it is confined to Lon- don. It is at work in all our considerable towns, and is rapidly extending to others of smaller size. Indeed, if not checked, it threatens speedily to supersede everywhere the old and le- gitimate mode of business. We take some other illustrations of the value of labour in Loadon, selecting them from the different branches into which industrial pursuits may be classified. The Spitalfields. Wearers belong to what are deno...

THE LORD RECTORSHIP OF GLASGOW UNIVERSITY.-We have it on authority that Mr. Macaulay is altogether ? indisposed to accept the invidious office, either!-of deciding against Sheriff Alison or -'against LorqV Palmerston. He ha«, therefore, decided'ttot'1 to come down. The nomination/consequently rests in Colonel Muir. Colonel Muir, how- ever, at the present time, is sojourning, in. Italy ; he returns by the end- of. the month ; there is not the slightest doubt that his vote will he given to the historian of Europe. It will be some time before the formal nomina- tion is made; this information is not generally known even within* the walls of the Univer- sity, but we have it from a source on which we have always placed the most implicit re» liance.-Glasgow Mail.

English Extracts. THE ASPECT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS. (From the Daily Netos. Nov. 26.) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 13 March 1851

English Extracts. THE ASPECT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS. (Frvm the Daily Netos. Nov. 26.) The Prussian monarch's speech is no doubt warlike, but we mistake much if it be not the contrary of war causing. Defiant as it is to Austria, and contemptuous to the soi-disant Bund of Frankfort, it carefully avoids what- ever might give offence to Russia. The heir to the Electorate of Hesse, it is well known, is a son-in-law of the Russian Emperor, and was one of the princes at Warsaw. To have prejudged in the speech the constitutional question of Hesse, would have been a defiance to Russia as well as Austria, nnd would not have been ventured unless there were no hopes of the court of Berlin remaining oh a good understanding wi rh that of St. Peters- burg. The speech evidently does not aban- don that hope, and the framers of the royal speech must have had some reason to count up n it. The fact of the calling out of the landwehr has saved Prussia not only from humiliation, but from being dragged back i...

THE EMPIRE._ THURSDAY, MARC Jr 13, J 851. DR. TIERNEY'S MOTION. IN thc ordinations of Providence, nothing is more beautifully striking than the special ndaptitudo of thc various individuals of the human family to tho multitudinous agencies in our social economy. Thus, in our own limited community, wc see one gentleman devoting his intellectual powers to tho (lovelopcmcnfc of thc geological character of our country, whilst a second, with a Kcal nob less laudable, dedicates his mental energies to tho supervision of our dunghills »nd our dead dogs, Tho studious clergyman of St, Leonards does not more eagerly nor more usefully . investigate . the character of some -sjfietrean specimen, than I does the physician of the City . Council .pore and belabour his faculties over some irresistible specimens of black-leg. The blooming Dr. Tierney is a perfect zealot in the crusade against diseased beef and vapourous cesspools.

STEALING.-About noon yesterday, Mr. Michael Blakeny of King and Clarence-street, gave his brother James Blakeny, in charge of constable Jeffrey for stealing . accouut books out of the slaughter house of Messrs. Blakeny and Richard- son of Sussex-street, a short time previously. Some of the books have since been found, but there are still missing, two bank books, n cash book and a day book,"the property of the above named Company. These articles although of considerable value to the owners.are utterly use- less to any one else. POST OFFIOE.-The Commission of Enquiry re- lative to this department, have, we believe, brought their labours to a close, so far as regards the taking of evidence. Of course we are unable as yet to say what may be the nature of the re- port, though we have heard a great many curious rumours, one of which is that Mr. Raymond is to bo pensioned off, and Captain King* appointed his successor. It is said that about twenty witnesses have been been examined, each at...
