PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 March 1851
PORT PHILLIP. From tho papers received by Yesterday's mail.wo glean some items of interest. Great contention was being manifested, at least in the press, re- specting tho election of a Delegate to England, from tlie Australasian League. Several gentle- men hail been named to contest the election. Among those wore tho Rev, Dr. Lang and Mr. AVilliani Kerr, of Melbourne. Tho gentleman, however, who appeared to have tho greatest chance" of election was Mr. J. 0. King, Town Clerk of Melbourne. Tho election was* to take j)lacc on the 11th instant, and tho Melbourne Miming Herald, of that date, thus speaks of it :-: " This day tho League Council,-unless we havo defeated them through very shame,-ai* going to .elect tho most violent party man in all Victoria as lier Delegate i Notwithstanding our previous re- marks, borne out as they were to the very letter by public opinion, this monstrosity is about to bo 'perpetrated, and the sacred cause of tho League damned for over. Alas ! what will no...

To the Editor of the Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 March 1851
To the Editor of the Emjñrr. Sin-It ia with regret'tltat I find in your paper -fd* the 17th' ultimo, an article headed "Tho Glarenco River,"'purporting to come from private »ilvico, it containing nothing but falsehood as regards disease amongst tho pigs in this neigh- bourhood. Your informant, whoever ho may be, ought well to consider what ho is about before ho pens such untruths, it being calculated to do much injury to the. district, widen no doubt was h¡3 intention. There is not, neither lias there boon discaso of any kind amongst either pigs, cattle, or sheep. Tho season certainly ibas been very dry, but I am happy to say that 'wo have lately had somo refreshing showers which havo done great good. You will oblige mc by inserting this [in your .valuable paper, as it may tend to counteract any injurious effect tho article referred to might .have. lam, Sir, Your obedient servant and well wisher. VERITAS. Grafton, Clarence River, March 7, 1851.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE WORKING CLASSES IN LONDON. To the Editor of The Empire. Sin-iou arc doing essential servico to tue cause of tho working classes both in Britain and Australia by your republication of thc admirable book of the Rev. Samuel Green. It would bo a noble thing if tho whole newspaper press, English and Colonial, were to bring its power to bear directly on tho elevation of the labouring popula- tion, aa, indeed, many leading journals aro already doing. This will bc done ono day not very dis- tant. For it is now clear as sunliglit to all judici- ous thinkers that tho happiness of tho PIÍO'IÍ.IÍ is the greatest clement in national greatness, and ' stability. Tho remarks of Mr. Green, copied into you» paper of to-day, respecting thc labourers connected, with tho shipping in the Thames, reminds me cf a scene which I witnessed ono morning in London, and which I shall never forget. I was taking an early stroll through the mighty Babylon about daybreak, thinking ol'many...

BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 March 1851
BATHURST. THE WEATHER.-On last Wednesday morning, indications of rain, almost amounting to certainty, bogan to bo visible, and at about two o'clock p.in., dense masses of black clouds caine up from tho westward and went over in the direction of tho . Stony Range, at tho same time extending nearly clue north and south in an almost unbroken chain. However, phenomena of tins kind being of so fre- quent occurrence in this arid region, it was almost generally feared that tho result would bo as usual -a. slight shower, and that then we should hrtvo our usual return of a clear blue sky and fervid atmosphere. Such, indeed, happily, was not tho case, for within the lapse of some few minutes after tho above indications, it began to rain steadily and, we hope, generally, ¡uni continued thus with- out intermission until sun-rise on Thursday morn- ing. Even now the country round begins to show signs of returning verdure, and we trust that he fore long we shall receive as copious a supply of rain...

""" THE EMNllE. SYDNEY, WEDNESDAY, MAllCH 10, ISfll. A COLONIA!, NOVELTY. VVmi ita Sydney people, tho ordinary ope- rations of n third-rate trading community are occasionally interrupted ijy a tempo- ráneo tcp meeting, a civic election, or, ?mightiest of .all, mi antí4ransporta¿¡on .crusade ; hut, save and except these half popular, half-ceremonious appeals to our' more excitable feelings, we are cognizant of absolutely nothing in the shape of pub- lic. enterprise. Yet at the present time there is a movement going on, remarkably diffei'ent from any of these things, which seeks to interest our highest faculties in conferring the most enduring benefits on our country ; and, what is more, as far as we, occupying the position of remoto spec- tators, can judge, it is far from being unsuccessful. . We .allude to the quiet agitation (if we may use such a term,) originated, as we are informed, hy Dr. Douglass, to promote an Industrial Ex- hibition in this colony, on tho plan of the great Na...

THE LOW LONDON LODGING-HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 March 1851
THE LOW LpXDON LODGING-IIOTJSES. j Foremost amongst the receptacles of misery, vice, nnd poverty found in the-metropolis, are the chenp lodging-houses, frequented hy thousands who are first driven to them by necessity, and soon became feat fully and fatally corrupted by the associations thej' arc led to form thee. It appents from the Reports of the Police Commissioners, that in 1^30 there were open in London as many as 221 of such houses; each harbouring, on an average, nightly, as many as eleven such characters, as we shall proceed to describe ; thus showing a total of 2;431 pickpockets and vagrants, sheltered by the proprietors of these domiciles. With some distinctive features, they are all marked by the sa ne great essential charac- teristics, and a description bf the accommoda- tion and inmates ol one will serve as an indi- cation of the character oí the whole. In one described by the Commissioners of the Chronicle, the charge for a hed was 2d., for which sum the lodger was ent...
THE TRUCK SYSTEM [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 March 1851
THE TRUCK SYSTEM Prevails tu the greatest extent in the iron und coal district*. It is in lull aud active operation in Staffordshire and the mint ni counties of South Wales. Every attempt of the legislature to put an end to thc system has hitherto failed. Thc law is habitually and grossly violated, and even magistrates are nuiongst those who systematically evade its provisions for the protection of the workman. Under the oppression ol the Tommy-musters, the people are said to be utterly.lielpleca. The master is compelled liy law to pay his workpeople in money. There is no provision, however, requiring him to pny wnges weekly. Ile> therefore, adops the system of loi.g recl&lt;ouing, of which "Truck'' ia part ami parcel, Purin? the long interyajiiibetween the pay-days, the men, . wiiluiut roonej', and in'want of goods, are obliged to avail them- selves of the arrangements made by the em- ployers, and o1rtn1lv-nrt*eles~of consumption, upon the'credit of tickets or orders upo...
THE WORKING CLASSES OF GREAT BRITAIN. APPENDIX. (Continued from our last.) INTEMPERANCE, POVERTY, AND CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 March 1851
THE WORKING CLASSES OF GREAT BRITAIN. BY TIÍ'E REV. SAMUEL G. GREEN, A B. APPENDIX. ( Continued from our lust.*J INTEMPERANCE, POVERTY, AND CRIME. It has been shown that the net uni amount of remuneration received in many branches of industry, is insufficient t.o provide the ; comforts and decencies of life. It is a lamentable fuct, that in several departments, of labour, whtre va;es nie competitively, high, a corresponding condition of practical ' poverty nnd destitution ' ia' induced hy the1 voluntary drinking usages' that prevail among ! thc operatives. The general connection of' povertjr with intemperance is proved iin. the experience of every nation in .which ^drunken-? ness is n prominent crime. A few facts,, drnwn from society amongst ourselves! will, how- ever, bethe most appropriate illustrations . here. Many experienced workmen,' contending for a living in old ngc, and in circumstances rendered most unfavourable by the competi- tion of younger hands, have lamented that, th...
