WHAT IS DOING FOR LEICHHARDT AND HIS PARTY. To the Editor of the Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 20 March 1851

WIIAT IS DOING FOR LEICHHARDT AND HIS PARTY « To thc Editor of the Empire. Sm-How can yon explain the apathy that at present exists rn tho public mind, regarding the fate of Dr.. Leichhardt and party ? Can it'be that the inhabitants of New South Wales and the neighbouring colonies are utterly careless as to tile results of such an arduous undertaking ? Can it bo that they caro not whether tho interior of tho large island they inhabit bo explored or not '{ to know whether a pathless waste exists beyond " Sturt's Desert," or the island sea spoken" of ? Or, are we to suppose by,their silence that they aro utterly unconcerned, and have not the least dosiro to know whether he and they have perished or not. In charity 'to our common humanity we cannot suppose that the latter reason is tho one any more than the former one. Look only to the first journey that he made, and seo how cheerfully tho public came forward with their money for tho expedit ion. And think again of the rejoicings that ...

And our own hum- ble effort was made with the strong conviction, and the firm faith, that this .desirable consummation might yet bo achieved. We shall always feel bound, therefore, to maintain the dignity of tho newspaper press in our own sphere, and to protest against its degradation by others. The man who as...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 20 March 1851

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Wc yesterday received Van Diemen's Land papers up to* tlie ll th instant, from which we make the following summary of news :-The honourable James Ebenezer Bicheno, Colonial Secretary and Registrar General of Van Diemen's Land, had died on tho 25th ultimo. As a mark of respect to tho deceased, his Excellency tho Governor caused all business in the public offices to be suspended on the occasion of tho funeral, which took place on tho 28th of February, and which was conducted with all tho ceremony usually observed in such cases. His Excellency Sir Wm. Denison, with a small party of friends had paid a visit to Port Davey, and returned on the 10th instant. Electioneering tactics preparatory to thc prac- tical introduction of tho New Constitution seemed to be the order of the day. Several gentlemen were named as likely to be elected, among whom was Mi*. Gregson, a member of the old Council, and a gentleman who has gained some distinction in lcgislatorial matters. His re...

THE UPPER SACRAMENTO.-Tho accounts received from this quarter, aro highly favourable. The weather thus far during tho winter, has been uni- formly propitious for tho mines. Thc communi- cation to tho placers on the Trinity and the Klamath, and tributaries, continues uninterrupted. Trains arc constantly departing, and tho reports from those persons who come in, is that the snows arc found only upon one mountain, which is tho solo impediment on tho route, and that not by any means a material ono.-Transcript, Jan. lQth. FROM NEVADA CITY.-Wo learn that business in this inland city is again reviving, and large numbers of miners aro returning to commence operations in tho coyote diggings. This description of mining; is said to bo already carried on to a largo extent, as several streams of water have been brought to the diggings in ditches, for a dis- tance of about six miles, thus affording facilities for washing, which was heretofore supposed could only bo supplied by rain.

STOCKTON MATTERS. FROM THE MIXES.-Wo aro much gratified to learn by persons from Sonora, that tho recent rains have served in a great degree to revive tho mining business in that section. The miners are represented as being busily at work, and receiving a fair remuneration for their labour. Already bu- siness has become active among merchants and traders, and the recent dulncss is fast wearing off. A number of our Stockton merchants are now absont in tho mines, making collections ; and it is to bc hoped tha's the improved condition of things there will enable them to bring back considerable amounts of the dusti Business is certainly dull enough just now in'8tockton, but wc anticipate an improvement ero many weeks.-Times, 15th Jan.

TnE POLICE.-It is now about throe months, wo believe, since thc new police system was intro- duced ; and for anything tangible that has re- sulted, so far as ordinary mortal vision can discern, it might just as well havo remained in the brain of tho philosopher who invented it. Indeed so quiet, so modest, so unobtrusive has been its operation that we were not'aware of its existence until informed a few days ago. We have heard of nothing, not even tho jingle of any part of the £800 a year into tho Inspector-General's pocket, to persuado us into tho belief that our constabulary is a shade different this year from what it was last, either in the mode of action, tho rate of remuner- ation, or in the nicety with which tho police cos- tume is adapted to tho weather.
