MR. DISRAELI'S LETTER ON PAPAL AGGRESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 March 1851

MD. DISRAELI'S LETTER ON PAPAL AGGRESSION. Tho following lotter has been addressed to tho Lord Lieutenant of the county of Buckingham by Mr. Disraeli : TO TM! LOUD LIEUTENANT OF THE COUNTY OF BUCKINGHAM. " MY Lonn-I have received numerous appeals from my constituents requesting that I would co- operate with them in addressing your lordship to call a meeting of thc county, in order that we may express our reprobation of the recent assault of tho Court of Borne on the prerogatives of our - Sove- reign and tho liberties of her subjects. " I think it very desirable that a meeting of the county should be called for that purpose, but, as far as I can gather from what reaches me, groat misapprehension is afloat respecting the circum- stances which now so violently, but so justly, ex- cite tho indignation of the country. " Men are called upon to combino to prevent foreign interference with tho prerogatives of the Queen, and to resist jurisdiction by tho Pope in her Majesty's dominions. "But...

THE AUSTRAMAO-A POEM, nv CATO TIIK YO UKO KR.-Our friend the Athenaeum would cer- tainly rank this production amongst its " Poetry of tl'io Million," which, by the bye, is usually poetry for tho lew. Our local bards aro mit numerous, although bad verses aro capable of cultivation on tho most sterile literary soil. And Cato tho Younger comos ajitly enough in proof of this fact. Ile has good intentions, to do' him justice, and therefore we would willingly deal gently with him. But wo must fairly warn him that good intentions never can be a substitute for bad poetry. Cato is evidently a very young writer. Ile wants practico, and he wants a few fundamen- tal principles to proceed upon, beforo ho shall be quite competent to write poetry as good as Pope's. If ho takes care to count a syllable'for each of hi* ton fingers, and make his lines exactly that length ; if he will stick to one subject, and-not jump to'a second beforo his first is fully com-, ploted; if he will "strike out all tho ...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 March 1851

7 ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of thc Empire. J Sm-Precipitancy in any matter is to be depre- cated. On tho other hand, promptness succeed- ing deliberation is to bo commenced. At this moment I have under my ken, the paragraph in your .Saturday's issue, bearing the heading " Tho Mooting." Tho wisdom of tho Committee in their decision to defer tho public meeting is at the best -problematical. It's pretty certain that tho pooplo generally are by no means well informed upon tho leading points of the New Constitution, and moro especially that part of the people who aro .tho most deeply interested in thc just settlement of these points. Were tho people to bo called together on one of the days of the coming week . fi»r tho purpose of discussing the matter and do- ubling upon a course of.action suited to the emer- gency, and giving full expression to their wishes, a proof would thus be afforded to tho Legislative Council that tho citizens of Sydney are not so eareloss about tho m...

HABITS OP DRUNKENNESS ENFORCED BY TRADE REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 March 1851

HABITS OP DRUNKENNESS ENFORCED BY TRADE REGULATIONS. We have already adduced the testimony of men engaged in the most laborious and ex- hausting species of toil, as to the non-necesr sity of intoxicating stimulants to enable them to pursue their calling. We are now about to advert to the astounding fact, that there are branches of industry in which the work- men are compelled, by the fear of losing their future chance of employment, or induced by the hope of obtnihing the preference, to spend a large proportion of their earnings in drink. They are entirely in the hands of the publi- can. This is the ense to a deplorable extent with the ballast-heavers of London. They must drink, or they cannot get work, accord- ing to the operations of the preseut system of employment and payment, which makes publicans the contractors for the labour to be performed, and of course the paymasters when it is done. Tile universal testimony of the men is, that if thej' refuse to drink, and that to the ex...

NON-NECESSITY OF INTOXICATING DRINKS TO SUPPORT STRENGTH UNDER SEVERE TOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 March 1851

Is'ON-XECESSITY OP INTOXICATING DRINKS TO SUPPORT STRENGTH UNDER SEVERE TOIL. Of all departments of labour that of the "liallasters and coal-whippers, employed on the Thames, is, perhaps, the most trying and exhausting. " The perspiration," said one of these mer», " in the summer time, streams down our foreheads so rapidly that it will -often get into our eyes before we have time to wipe it off. This makes the eyes very sore. At night, when we get home, we can- not bear to sit with a candle. The perspira- tion is of a very briny nature, for I often taste it as it runs down my lips. We are often so " heated «ver our work, that the perspiration rups into the shoes j and often, from the dust and heat jumping up and down, and the feet being galled with small dust, I have had my shoes l*till of blood. The thirst produced by our work is very excessive. It is completely as if you had a fever upon you. The dust gets into the throat and very nearly suffocates you. You can scrape the coal-dus...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. THE INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION.—ITS USES AND ABUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 March 1851

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. THE INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION.-ITS USES AND ABUSES. In the records of classic antiquity few charac- ters arc treated with a more marked respect than tho authorities who presided over the sacred games, who arranged tho terms of competition and who awarded the prizes. The labour and responsibility of these' officers at the Olympian Games may bc inferred from the variety of nations, tho vastness of the concourse, and thc distin- guished character of tho candidates that usually mot on that Held ; for it is no exaggeration to say that the whole civilized world, including poets, philosophers, statesmen, and historians, flocked every four years to tho banks of the Peneus. Even the Apostle to tho Gentiles, though a He- brew of the Hebrews, and brought up in tho straightest sect of the Pharisees, was Greek enough to feel an evident enthusiasm on the sub- ject of theso games, and to find in them a genial fleld of moral illustration. Such was the impor- tance attached to horse an...

THE FUGITIVE SLAVE LAW. —Slavery promises to 1)0 increasingly a burdensome stone to tho United States of North America. Tho Fugitivo Slave Bill has operated in a manner which bad never been contemplated ; and would seem to have been a step to which the friends of freedom have been prompted by the genius of humanity as ono of the most efficient methods of helping on tim deliver- ance of three millions of oppressed human beings. Large portions of thc public in the Free States aro determined, by every means in their power, to resist tho Bill ; and, ns wo showed last week, thc religious bodies aro forward to avow themselves its opponents. Bore, then, comes thc difficulty : it is tho law ; granted a very bad law, but still* it is tho law ; and so long as it is the law, it is in- cumbent on tho President of the Republic to enforce it. This, however, will require tho aid ol military means ; and, accordingly, the President bas determined to call out tho military nnd enforce the provisions o...
