TAXATION OF KNOWLEDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 21 March 1851
TAXATION OF KNOWLEDGE. Lv this age of progress, to place any re- striction upon the free diffusion of know- ledge, ? argues truly no small amount of legislative incapacity and ignorance. Such a restriction is found in the postage duty upon newspapers, imposed hy the recent Act of the Legislative Council of this co- lony. Au imposition more unequal, more oppressive, and moro uncalled for, could not well have been devised. It doubtless occurred to the official au- thor of this choice piece-of bungling, that some retreat must be secured in case tho great experiment of cheap postage should prove an ultimate failure. Rowland Hill was too confident in the correctness of his comprehensive views, or too magnanimous to make any potty reservations in his great scheme of Post Office reform ; but Row- land Hill was not a man, like our colonial Solons, to strain at. gnats and swallow j camels. How the imposition of a postage rate upon newspapers would operate must have been obvious to tho merest...

THE WORKING CLASSES IN BRITAIN AND AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 21 March 1851
THE WORKING CLASSES IN ^ BRITAIN AND AUSTRALIA. WE liave now completed our piecemeal republication of tho Hov. Samuel Green's Prize Essay on the Working Classes of Great Britain ; and those of our readers who have porused the successive portions of that work, will admit that the space we have given to it bas been worthily devoted. Thc work appears to us to be a perfect moäel of popular literature, Hhe- i comprehensive but complete view of the subject; the fulness of fact and argu-.ó ment, the clearness of arrangement, the- , luminous simplicity of style, which it ex- hibits, and the tone of genuine Christian philanthropy which pervades it, combino : to render it the most admirable essay upon the subject ever given-to the world. The projector of it, (Mr. John Cassell, of London,) as well as its author,' merits the gratitude of all working men; and of atl who acknowledge the claims of humanity and rejoice in every advance yof ^mankind. . in happiness and virtue.

THE EMPIRE. SYDNEY, FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 1851. CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 21 March 1851
THE EMPIRE. SYDNEY, FRIDAY, MARCH 21, J851. CALIFORNIA. BY the John Lovett,, yesterday,' we re- ceived Californian papers to the 18th January. .From extracts in another co- lumn it will be seen that the discovery of new fields of gold was becoming, if any- thing, more extensive. Of the influx of population overland, some idea may be fornîed from the following statements in an American paper. The communication was from Fox*t Laramie, and affirmed the sum total of emigrants who had passed that post in seven months to be 38,253 men, 1,449 women, and 1,549 children. These emigrants were accompanied by 9,530 wagons, 23,068 horses, 7,523 mules, 23,816 oxen, 6,324 cows, and 1,313 sheep. The number of deaths noted there was 307. The Legislature was sitting at San Jose, but there was some talk of its removal to San Francisco. We find the following paragraph in one of the January papers, which will serve as a pretty good indication of the feeling exist- ing towards immigrants from these colo-...

It was shown by tho ovidenco for the plaintiff, that the defendant came to tho premises on the 1st November-last, with another person, known to be a bailiff; that he wrote down à list of cattle and other effects. And it was further proved, by the evidence of one of tho plaintiffs neighbours, that on the 2nd November he saw and read a no tico of sale of defendant's effects, which was pinned to a tree about three-quarters of a mile from plaintiff's residence.
