EPIDEMIC IN STOCK.—REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 17 March 1851
EPIDEAIIC IN STOCK.-REPORT OF TRI COMMISSIONERS. WE have, in the report which has just been made public, the first result of the enquiry which the local government has deemed it right to institute into this matter, so deeply affecting the interest of our colonial stockholders. The report suggests some important and useful re- flections. The report itself is somewhat meagre and unsatisfactory, and the Commissioners, with true professional caution, have evaded the real question they had to determine, viz., the nature of the disease, and the practi- cable remedy. There are some, ; well- u, > sounding scientific phrases, which ,to many v . of our up-country squatters will doubtless be about as intelligible tip a chapter^|n;the Koran, but with regard ,to thelraeans of prevention or cure, thejreport,'kayes, them just as wise as they wei'c before.. A body, , of Leicestershire, farmers twould have come to the point in half the time that theee Commissioners are likely to occupy ; they Mou...

The "defendants pleaded-1st, the general issue ¡ 2nd, to"* the" "first breach]- pjiyment according -to the contract ; 3rd, to the 'second breach, that the plaintiff abandoned the work; 4th, a general plea of payment ; and 5th, a set off.

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. Since the establishment of The Empire, many causes have operated to produco irregu . larity in its general management, moro parti- cularly in its delivery to subscribers. Whatever grounds for complaint on this score may have existed hitherto, however, wo trust there will bo none for- tho future. " At considerable ex- pense, wo have now mado arrangements to ensure the early and -punctual publication of our Journal, and, at tho"same time, to effect in it various improvements in mechanical and other respects, which, wo feel assured, will be appreciated by those numerous friends who have already given us such earnest proofs of their'support and confidence. This morning's pnper is produced under the new permanent provisions mado for its publication, and will, perhaps, best exemplify the desirable character of the change. It appears due to ourselves, as well as to our com- mercial supporters, to stato that an oxtonsivo . circulation in Sydney, which ia rapidly increasi...

THE EMPIRE. SYDNEY, MONDAY, MARCH 17, 1851. THE SCHEDULES. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 17 March 1851
THE EMFIßl. SYDNEY, MONDAY; AIAROH 17, 1851. THE SCHEDULES. UNDOUBTEDLY ono of the most flagrant of our constitutional abuses is the enormous amount of money annually withheld from the supervision of the local legislature by means of what is called the Schedules A, B, and C. This evil has pressed like an incubus on the energies of our young colony. It has thwarted noai'ly every at- tempt at financial reform, and has been the medium of inflicting upon us all the evils of a corrupt governmental patronage. The brief but eventful history of our present Legislative Council is replete with evidence of these facts. Yet how could it bo otherwise ? The power over the purse-strings is, perhaps-, the mightiest which a legislature could possess. It is this which gives efficacy and grandeur to the working of that most glorious-most potent element of the British Constitution -the House of Commons. . It compre- hends the great secret of the unity of action-that nicety of adjustment' for whioh the ...
CALIFORNIA. WARNING TO EMIGRANTS. (To the Editors of the Sydney Newspapers.) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 17 March 1851
CALIFORNIA. WARNING TO EMIGRANTS. (To the Editors of the Sydney Newspapers.) GENTLEMEN-Perceiving that emigration hence to California has again set in with unabated viru- lence, I would solemnly warn those who yet re- main, against departure. Every letter here published (and there have been many) speaks unfavourably for adventurers thither. Why then should a few isolated indivi- duals who have returned thence, saying they have &nbsp; mado 200 or 300 pounds, weigh against the mul- titude of absolute and total failures ? Having visited that country myself, I hesitate not to declare my decided conviction that one third at least of those now emigrating will perish within a year from absolute penury (poverty), from famine, hard living, harder work, want of shelter, and other hardships, the certain forerunners of sick- ness, of death, and of the grave. Let each man ask himself how 400,000 men, settling at once (as you may say) in a new and hitherto uninhabited country can prosper ...
INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 17 March 1851
INDIA. WE received, a few days ago, Calcutta papers, down to the beginning of January, but have not hitherto been able to find room for extracts. The most important article of news is the religious dissatis- faction among the Hindoo inhabitants of Bengal and its dependencies, caused by an Act of the Legislature against their an oicnt form of faith. The Englishman of January 3rd, contains a long and ably written memorial to the Court of Directors, praying the repeal of the law, (popularly called the Lex Loci Act) which appears to l>e the' expression of the feelings of the Hindoo population at large. After ' stating some matters of a cir cumBta'ntial nature, with reference to this arid earlier attempts at legislating againstJ their religion, the memorialists iff J/, J ° U^wasnot morely from their natural attach tnont'iídfthoir ancient laws and usages, that (as tho Uaxpnsof old objected to the alteration of the I.aw8 of England,) tho Alomorialists objected, anti yourpVcsfcnt Alonior...
