ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. NATIVE LITERATUR-B. To the Editor of the Empire: Sin-I have often asked whether there was any tendency to intellectual pursuits evinced by our nativo'youth, and always" received' ». negative reply.

YESTERDAY'S. MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 March 1851
: ;YESTERDAY'S. MEETING. I To 'give, any " adequate description of the ;Iihboiu-''Meeting at the Royal Hotel, yesterday, ..would require thc pencil of a Hogarth. . Notwithstanding that the Meet- ing had been advertised for two or three weeks, there appeared to be no person among its originators who was acquainted with tho ideas of a second person. At thc commencement of the proceedings, all was confusion, and at every subsequent stage thé : busi- ness grew moro confounded. Mr. Mort was too much abroad, and Mr. Hickey was too straight-laccd ; Mr. Chambers was too much of a chevaux de frise of statistics, and Mr. Flood was too altogether a torrent ; Mr. Piddington was too. inven- tive, and Maxwell was too argumentative ; Mr. Wells was too much for thc meeting, and Mr. Geo was too much for himself. In short, a more unsatisfactory and unin- telligible affair than yesterday's meeting we never saw, and are not likely ogain to sec.

THE EMPIRE. SYDNEY, FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 7851. THE OPENING OF THE COUNCIL: TIIE Legislative Council meet this day for the despatch of the most important busi- ness which has ever occupied the delibe- rations of that body. There is naturally great anxiety felt by all thinking persons with regard to the course which will be pursued in bringing into operation the New Constitution of the Colony. This anxiety, with certain members of the com7 munity, is greatly increased- by the rumours, . which we fear; are/ too- well founded, that thc. local government have already decided in parcelling out the coun- try into electoral districts, and in appor- tioning the representation to tho respec- tive constituencies. Of the liberal charac ter of the service which has been so gratuitously performed for us, a fair example is furnished in the plot (we can call it by no better name) of limiting Sydney to three members ! By imperial command a costly process of taking the census was entered into, for the o...

THE SEAMSTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 March 1851
THE SEAMSTRESS. . BY CHARLES J PATTEBSON. Hark! that rustió of the dress, ' Stiff with lavish comeliness ! Hero comes one whose, cheek would flush But to have herf garments brush 'Gainst the girl whose fingers thin "Wove tho weary' broidery in, ' Bending backward from her toil, Lest her tears the silk might soil. And in midnight's ; chill and murk, j Stitched her. life into the work, Shaping from her bitter thought Heart's ease and forget-me-not, Satirising her despair With tho emblem, woven there. J. .R. LOWELL. The clock hud struck midnight, yet still the seamstress toiled on, though her.fingers-were long since weary; and her heart > sick-almost unto death. -Her candle flickered low-in its socket, and at last flared up as if about tb go out ; she rose, lit another, and still toiled on. The sleet drove against the window pane, rattling like shot upon the frosty glass, and the step of the sleepy watchman Without was the sole sound that echoed in the streets ; the whole city lay d...
MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. WOMAN THE REFORMER. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 March 1851
MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. WOMAN THE REFORMER. UT MRS. C. I« BALFOUR. The woman's cause is man's ; they riso or sink together, Dwarfed or Godlike-bond or free.-TKNNTSON. ' It seems strange that in this age of inves- tigation and social progress, the power of woman to promote or retard improvement should, be so seldom adverted to. A multi tu.de of plans are thought of for mitigating evil and diffusing good, but woman is only indirectly named in reference to these plans. If her influence is tacitly admitted, and her ¿id invoked, it is as an auxiliary, and not a principal.' In many benevolent aud religious enterprises she assists by her occasional pre- sence on public occasions; by. collecting funds for carrying on the operations of many societies; by the ingenuity and industry'of her hands, in providing elegant and useful ' works for sale, m aid of the treasury of bene: voleuce. AU this is well. Everv woman thus employing her talent sud leisure, is doing something towards abating the'amo...

Tho MAYOR having road thc advertisement con- vening the meeting, was voted to»'the chair, j Mr. Mont came forward to explain, as briefly ns j possible, that although tho responsibility of calling this meeting together had boen laid upon him,-the credit was,, in point of fact, due ito Mr. Hickey. In an article in Wednesday's Press t the meeting was designated *' Mr. Mort's Meeting.'"
