FRIDAY, MAROU 14, I8ßl. TÍIE PROPOSED PTJBLIO MEET wa. THE "'Public . Meeting projected at the preliminary mcotinghold at Mr. Driver's, ou Wednesday ovening, whoovor may bc tho principal movers in it, or whatever may be its main features, cannot be other than a most important movement, The business to be brought under its consider- ation is essentially of a higher political character than any ever yet submitted to a Public Meeting of the inhabitants of this city. We trust that the gentlemen who have, in so praiseworthy a spirit, gone into its preliminaries, will excuse an expression of solicitude that the questions of great constitutional import to be dis- cussed at such meetings, whilst they shall be boldly, energetically, and worthily dealt with, may not suffer from precipi- tancy or indiscretion. Let due care and soberness be observed in the preparation of the resolutions ; and let the business throughout be sustained by a liberal, courteous, and steady spirit of co-opera- tion. ...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 14 March 1851
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WE have South Australian journals to the 22nd ultimo, the main feature iu which was contributed by the pending elections for the new representative legis- lature. The Electoral Act parcels the colony out into sixteen districts,,each rer turning one member j and admits the principle of population in the apportion- ment of the representation. The North, South, Western, and Eastern portions of Adelaide are erected into seperate con- stituencies; but-this arrangement does not appear to receive the hearty concur- rence of the local press. It is argued that the collective polling of the city , and the suburbs, would have been more ' publicly beneficial and satisfactory. . There have evidently been considerable short-comings in carrying out the principle of a nume- rical basis for the representation, as some of the constituencies have not more than the tenth of the population of others, whilst the smallest returns its member, and the largest does no more. In fact the inaug...
A CASE OE INTELLECTUAL DESTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 14 March 1851
A CASE OE INTELLECTUAL DESTITUTION. OF all the sins which can be laid to the charge of us Sydney folk, no one can ac- cuse us of an undue devotion to literature. Wo do not consume the midnight oil in pursuit of knowledge, nor peril health in toilsomely ascending Parnassus ; nor run the risk of neck-breaking by taking a smart gallop on Pegasus once and again. We know nothing of the Pierian Spring, ex- cept that it is not in New South Wales. Castaly does not appear on the face of our maps. Nay we believe their never was let us hope there never may be-a locality called Grub-street in this metropolis. The laurel-will our botanical friends have the goodness to correct us if we are in error ? -is not indigenous, nor has it ever, been cultivated here. Our tutelar deity is Mercury j and we utterly repudiate Apollo. It might be said of us with some justice, that in the intellectual scale of nations' we stand a little below the Hin- doos, and next above our neighbours the South Sea Islanders....

English Extracts. THE PAPAL AGGRESSION. THE ARCHBISHOP OP CANTERBURY ON THE ROMISH AGGRESSION. To the Archdeacons and Clergy of the Diocese of Canterbury. LAMBETH, NOV. 21,1850.---I ara rauch gratified by receiving the address, of the archdeacons and clergy of my diocese of Canterbury, " protesting against the act of aggression upon our Church recently committed by the Papal See." I was well aware that the clergy of my diocese were animated by the same senti- ments which have been so generally ex- pressed by the Church of England con- cerning this extraordinary measure, and I have waited for your address, considering that/it would afford the most suitable op- portunity of declaring my own senti- ments upon the occasion. You' justly'observe that the appoint- ment'of bishops to take spiritual charge of the several counties of England and ¡Wales is in direct opposition . to the statutesjofra country which .affirm that no foreign' pre-; late or potentatei hath, or ought't'o^have^' any j...

Nav, speak no ill !-a kindly TCÓrd Can. never leave a sting behind, And, oh ! to breathe each tale we've heard Is far beneath a noble mind. Full oft a better seed is sown By choosing- thus the kinder plan ; 3?or if but little good be known, Still let us speak the best we can. Give me the heart that fai,n would hide Would fain another's fault efface; How can it pleasure human prido To prove humanity but base? No : let us reach a higher mood, A nobler estimate of man ¡ "Be earnest in the search for good, And speak of all the best we oan. Then sqeak no ill-but lenient be To other's failings as your own ; .if you're the first a fault to see, Be not the first to make it known. I'or life is but a passing day, No lip may tell how brief its span , Then, on J the little time we stay, Let's speak of all the best we* can !
