DENOMINATIONAL SCHOOLS. To the Editor of the Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 24 March 1851

DENOMINATIONAL SCHOOLS. To the Editor of the Empire. 'SIR-You will bo glad to find that at least sonie of the Local Boards, to whom the Superintendence of Denominational Schools is confided, aro be- ginning to give earnest of their usefulness in tho appointment of proper teachers. As an instance of this, a Church of England schoolmaster to- wards the northern extremity of tho town was dis- missed a few daj s ago for incompetency. # It ap- pears that suspicion had been entertained for sometime previously which was confirmed by a continued want of progress in the scholars, as noted at the various examinations, together with the inaptitude and unbusincss-like conduct of the teacher himsolf. It was accordingly determined, with a view of bringing the matter to a head, t«> hold a public examination, giving the teacher a. month to prepare both himself and the children, and seriously impressing bim with tho object sought. The result of the examination I have already stated. Neither the t...

SIR-Though I am not long resident in Sydney, I have not been an unobservant spectator of tlio condition of Society around mo. Indeed, one of my chief designs in coming here was to soo with my own eyes tho actual stato of affairs, in order that when fitting opportunity occurs I may lend my aid in rectifying or confirming the ideas which obtaui.in England respecting New South AVales.

I AVnAT's THE PRICE or QUINCES ?-A Question for Philosophers and House AVives.-Many, a man in this city gives his sixpence or* shilling a-dozen for quinces, unmindful' of tho vast amount of good which this simple act confers on tho community. Como with me into the George-street Market, before the rising of the sun, and you shall road a pago in human annals well worthy of deep consideration. Tho grower of this fruit, who lives in the bush, is content to sell his produce to the toiling carrier at a merely nominal price. . The purchase made, the carrier brings his cart-load into town, early, before the sun-beforo the world is awake-and there, to the dealers in fruit, who have mustered in considerable numbers despite the rawness of the morning, he disposes of his purchase, by auction. The goods are put up at per basket. No advance less than a halfpenny is allowed, and often the competition is as keen, and the anixiety as groat, as ever was witnessed at Garraway's.

DISORDERLY CONDUCT.-Mr. John Fairfax, ac- companied by sovoral other gentlemen, j gavo a person named Joseph ? Lowingdon Lloyd into the custody of the polico for disorderly conduct during the service in tho Independent Church, yesterday evening. It appears that the young man's conduct towards the congregation was extremely insulting, and his general demeanour indicative of anything but sanity.
