LUXURY AND STARVATION. (From the Colonial 77mines.) We entreat our readers to patiently consider the subjoined extract from Lloyd's London, of the 10th October. When they consider that that highly popular newspaper, perhaps the most popular in the British empire, circulates upwards of one hundred thousand copies of each publication, they will appre ciate somewhat of the vast influence it must possess on the public mind. The time is rapidly approach ing when the scenes of extravagance, luxury, de bauchery, dissipation, and vice, to organise which forms the chief occupations of the higher classes, while the lower classes siilfr the extremest of want and deprivatlon, even to insufficiency of miserable diseased potato food, the approach of a radical change must be believed to be at hand.

WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 March 1847
W0 M A N. Fiom the moment that a female child is born into the world she is subjected to an unjust inequality by the laws of this realm. She cannot exercise or enjoy the rights of a free citizen, even if her lot have fallen in fair pasture, and liher father lirving left her wherewith to live, she hath remained single and kept it.. If she marry, liher very individual existence is merged in that of her husband; the property t]hat she haths in possession is taken from her, or placed peradventure in the Ihands of trustees, by whose negligence or fraud it is often wasted ; and, if shlip afterwards obtain anytlling by labour or inheritance, it is not hers, but her husband's; nay, she is no longer considered even as a rational and individual agent in the eyes of the law. Nor is public opinion more just. Go into a school for poor children, where the males are receiving such an education as may fit them for clerks and shopmen, bailiffs or gardeners, and if thou remark on the incomplete instr...

New Zealand. SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 March 1847
-0 (From the New Zealander.) SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE COLONY. Theprogress of Auckland, during the short period of its existence, must, even to those who are wholly unacquainted with its affairs, appear one of the most singular facts in colonial history. No colonial town, that we know of, has, in the same number of years, and under the same circumstances, become at once so populous and so wealthy. The population of Auckland and its vicinity amounts to nearly-5000 of which number there is not an individual who can really complain of distress or poverty. On the'con trary, there are very few persons amongst us, whose circumstances are not absolutely affluent, when com pared with those in which they arrived in the Colony. The wealth of the merchants of Auckland is greater than that of all the mercantile persons in the Company's settlements taken together. Cases of bankruptcy and insolvency have, now for some time, disappeared altogether, and even actions atlaw for the recovery of debts...

His private character is said to be that of a cruel, gloomy tyrant; he Is addicted to excess in the gratification of the unnatural appe tite...
