MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. WHIG AND TORY. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 25 March 1851

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. WniG AND TORY. Dante tells us that he saw, in Maleholge* a strange encounter between a human, form and a serpent. The enemies, after cruel wounds inflicted, stood for a time glaring on each other. A great cloud surrounded them, and then a wonderful metamorphosis began. Each creature was transfigured into the like- ness of its antagonist. The serpent's tail divided itself into two legs ; the man's legs intertwined'themselves into a tail. The body of the serpent put forth arma ; the arms of the man shrank into lits "body; At length the serpent stood up a man, and -spake ; the mani sank down a serpent,'and glided hissing away.' Something like .this was the transform motion which, dining the reign oLGeorge the First, befel the two English 'parties. Each gradually took the shape and colour of its foe, till at length thè Töry roáe'iip^ecHhe.. zealot of freedom, and the Whig crawled and licked'the diist at the feet bf, power. It ' is true that,: when these degenerat...

It appears that somo of the honorable gentleman's family are in the habit of rising very early for the purpose of bathing in the Govern- ment Domain. Yesterday, at about i o'clock a.m., the butler was awakened by a noise in one of tho rooms of the ground floor, and fancying it was only tho maid servant getting ready to go out as usual with the children, contented himself with calling out to know what it was o'clock, ile was "answered, by a man's voice, "Never mind, all right," and immediately his suspicions were roused, and ho jumped up to see who the intruder was. But tho nocturnal visitor had disappeared ; and on examination, the marks of a man's foot- steps were found on the carpet, an J two bars of the Venotian blind were cut away. No clue has yet been obtained as to who the burglar "was. DANGEROUS ACCIDENT.-On Sunday evening last, a ...
