PARRAMATTA—WONDERFUL DISCOVERY To the Editor of the Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 March 1851

PARRAMATTA-WONDERFUL DISCOVERY To the-Editor of the Empire. SIR-The S. M. Herald of Saturday last, con- tains a paragraph headed " Parramatta-Impor- tant to Irish Orphan Girls"-in which, after alluding to tho unhappiness experienced by the bench and the bashaws, that no law waasapparent   by which girls could be punished, the brilliant discovery of Mr. Byrnes J.P. and his coadjutor, (who is he?) corruscates, meteor-like, before the Australian Public. It appears that a girl named Celia Dixon dis- liked her situation and wished to leave it. She was transported to this colony for no other crime than poverty, and was doubtless unaware that po- verty merits the treatment of a slave. The Masters and Servants Act of this colony is a most dis- graceful and unequal law. The labourer is not permitted to quit his or her service under penalty of disgrace and imprisonment ; while it must be evident to all that the employer can render the employee so uncomfortable as to make him very...

FOLTCE OFFICE.-TUUSDAY. Before tho Police Magistrate. ST. PATRICK'S DAY.-Among tho worshippers of the reverend apostle of Ireland, tho foremost were Mick Coghlan and Shane Hughes. Thcso two worthies came before tho Hench to complain of oneil other's riotous behaviour. Shane's head was bound up. and tho collar of his shirt exhibited sitrns of a bloody fray. Shane, being tho com- plainant, had all the say to himself, and illustrated Iiis story by exhibiting a heavy shillelagh mid a basketful of paving stones, which had figured in the fight. Mr. Dowling to complainant-Ilavo you over . boon at Donnybrook fair ? i , Defendant-Piase yer worship thc likes of him never was there, I'll swear by tho blissed St. "Patbrick !

CENSUS.-All the roturas wo understand for tho district and city of Sydney have been sent iii ; but there is nothing as yet known ns to tho number of the population, except tho approximation given the other day by the Herald, which wo believe is very wide of tho mark. NATIONAL SCHOOLS.-Tho gentlemen to whom the initiation of the National System of education has been intrusted, deservo great credit for thc earnest and indefatigable manner in which they havo prosecuted their task. The National System may now bo considered ns fairly established. Notwithstanding tho short period since tho Board commenced operations, schools have been erected in various parts of tho colony, including Sydney and its vicinity, and every diligence is being exorcised to increase tho number in accordance with the local wants and wishes of the inhabitants. And as might naturally ho expected, thc suocess which has attended these efforts is producing its offect in the conversion of many to tho side of national ed...

To the Editor of the Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 20 March 1851

To the Editor of the Empire. Sin-I was sorry to see in your journal a fling at " anti-Transportation displays" and their ex- pense, in tho letter of some correspondent a day or two since. Whatever wo may think of tho matter, there is an evident preference on the part of Emigrants for those Colonies, which have never been penal. The number that proceed to South Australia and Victoria, in excess of that to the Sydney district proves it.. One fact ought to produce decision on the Corivict question. It is this that in the last year as largo a number of Immigrants arrived in South Australia at their own expense, as was sent out at tho charge of the land fund. So oren in a pounds, shillings, and pence point of view, Transportation is very costly to us. The Victoria folks understand the business points of the Anti-Transportation question tho- roughly. They have a perfuct conviction that tho present values of property depend upon tho steady influx of. labor and capital, and that to lower th...

THE RECLAMATION OF CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 20 March 1851

THE RECLAMATION OF CRIMINALS. .The thieves and low prostitutes of the metropolis, who have been questioned in great numbers on the point, have all manifested the utmost eagerness to quit their present course of life : mid bewailed the impossibility' of doing so. Indeed, it is found that an tnrly depnrtuie from rectitude and virtue, almost entails upon the offender the necessity of pur- suing to its end the career of evil he has com- menced. Meeti'ngsj' cbmposed of the most degraded . characters, the purlieus of crime could supply, .have. been held ; and the ques- tion, " Are yon not tired of the lives you lead, nhd:;; would you not gladly abandon them ?" has'been ' answered by shouts of Yes, yes 1" from hundreds of voices. But a guilty net detected, the path of honest in- dustry is generally closed against the crimi- nal, and, unable to find employment because his character has been destroyed, he 1ms, too often, no resource' open to him but theft, Many affecting instances have come ...
