ENGLISH EXTRACTS. ' LADY MORGAN AND.CARDINAL WISEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 March 1851
ENGmSÍI EXTRACTS. ' LADY MORGAN AND.CARDINAL WISEMAN. It is a curious fact, ivt generally known,' that Cardinal Wiseman's earliest appearance in thc field of controversy yeas by a tract, entitled, " Remarks on Lady Morgan's State- ments Regarding St. Peter's Chair Preserved in the Vr.tican Basilic." The date of thc edition in my possession is 1833, but I believe, it first appeared in 1825. In the 2nd volume, page 283, of that lady's ".Italy"-which re- ceiver from Loni Byron the high, praise of " fearless and excellent"-is the following passage : The sacrilegious curiosity of thc French broke throuu'h all obstacles to their seeing tho chair of ¡it. Peter. They actually removed its superb casket, and discovered the relic. Upon its mouldering and dusty surface were traced carv ngs, which bore tho appearance of letters. Tho chair was quickly brought into a better light, tho dastand cobweb's removed, and tho inscription (for an inscription it was) faithfully copied. The writing is in Ara...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE SCHOOL OF ARTS. To the Editor of The Empire. Sm-We should be glad to be informed if the committee of thc School of Arts is doing anything, or intending to do anything, or even commencing to think that it should intend to do anything, res-, pecting the arrangement of a course of lectures for the present session ? In every properly conducted institution with which we have ever boen ac- quainted, thc committee took care previous to the commencement of tho season, to make arrange- ments for a regular series of lectures by compe- tent persons, paid or unpaid as tho case might be. The programme was then printed jn full, cir- culated amongst the members, and announced to tho general public. Hence the appearance of a business-like style of conducting affairs was kept up ; the members foreknew what was in prepara- tion, and could arrange their attendance accord- ingly ; and the public were stimulated to support an institution which took such pains to cater for it...

PROSECUTIONS OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 March 1851
PROSECUTIONS OP THE PRESS. It is not an insignificant fact, either to tho press or tlie public, that there should be, at this mo- ment, at least six of our colonial newspapers sub- jected to the action of tho libel law. Two of these papers are recently started ones-the Press and the Empire ; but tho Sydney Morning Herald is tho leading newspaper of NewjSouth "Wales, and is conducted not merely with ability but with judgment and prudence. And whatever opinions may bo formed of the course, conduct, and politics of our three Melbourne contemporaries, they are at least each of them in their way respectable newspapers ; and though our respected friend, tho Argus, has recently fallen into very intemperate habits, it would be a want of common candour to deny to it the possession of talent and energy. How comes it, then, that several of the most re- spectable and most able of our colonial journals are at this moment exposed to tho pains and penal- ties of a stringent law, which renders prop...

THE Herald, of Wednesday last, had a leading article on certain ^efàhïa.tpry re- marks respecting the. moral character of Sydney, said to . haVe been uttered by Lord Ashley, at a recent Emigration Meeting, held somewhere in England. Our contemporary is unusually and righte- ously indignant at these " slanders " of his lordship, and-always great upon statistics-threatens to overwhelm him with an array of facts and figures one of these days, which1 will infallibly " demon- strate the true state. ófj'¡tíie,,case " to be widely different from^thct-'dismal portrai- ture he draws of w.äJil^^l^lG^d^öiir friend's statistical astiUeiiess-,r_pnjvblfls him to anti- cipate his forthcomuïg.îhoïialTccnsus with one fact of unanswerablqrcögency, viz., that " in proportion to;tlieirj'i'çSpéctivo number of inhabitants, ' Sydney ,"has more than double thc number of clergymen possessed by London."
