[Wo publish the following letters of Mr. Aaron and Mr. Jennings, from very different motives. Both, as the writers take caro to show, have been rejected by other Journals. With respect to the first gentleman's epistle, we confess wo havo but a very slender excuso for printing it-his own pressing solicitation. With Mr. Jennings the case is very different. It appeared to us, that in a matter most seriously concerning his character, bo had been unfairly used by our contemporary tho Freeman's Journal. A .capital offence was charged against him ; ho was tried for his life, and acquitted. The Freeman publishes an elaborate article, pointedly impugning the verdict of tho jury ; Mr. Jenningsl-epucs to these remarks, and admission is refused to his letter, lie thinks that tho publication of his reply is necessary to the vindication of his character, and, under those circumstances, wo open our columns for its publi- cation."-ED.

In our preliminary articles we attempted to show the utter negligence and criminal disregard which England has manifested towards her young colonies. We glanced at the greatness of their future prospects. We gave expression to our preference of those Southern Colonies, as fields for emi- gration, over all the other dependencies of tlie British Crown, Wo further argued that the embarrassments and disappoint- ments resulting from the blind adoption of every new project of colonisation...

THE NEW ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 29 March 1851
TUE NEW ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOPS. While the Roman Ca' holies of this country were a suffering and oppressed body-when they were shut out from any of the ordinary rights and privileges of citizenship, on ac- count of their religious belief-the sympathy and support of the people generally were cor- dially given to them. Their efforts to free tlipmselves from oppression-to raise them- selves to that same level of toleration and of civil right where all other sects were per- mitted to stand as brothers and fellow sub- jects-were viewed with approbation by the friends of rational freedom ; and their ulti- mate success was considered a triumph of common sense, no less than of justice. The Roman Catholics, however, seem to have misunderstood the English people in this matter-if we may judge from the impertinent nomination just made by the Pope, and by the complacent glorification of Cardinal Wiseman (the soi-disant Archbishop of West- minster) in his pastoral letter, which uus read in the Ro...

FACTS AND SCRAPS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 29 March 1851
FACTS AND SCRAPS. Punch says that the object of Mr. Stuart Wortley's Marriage Bill is to spike an eccle- siastical canon. *'M>»n,M says Adam Smith, "is an animal that makes bargains. No other animal does this-ino.dog exchanges bones «iib another." A.raan's virtue shall not be measured by his efforts, but by what be does ordinarily. Tile'calculation of riches and poverty is truly fantastical; that the man who wants n million should be a prince, and he who wants a groat a beggar; that lie who breaks for ¿El00,000, and injures thousands, should be re- spected" and' pitied : whilst he who fails for only a .few hundreds, and injures but a few, should ,be despised and condemned.- T-.WJ ter's Jtfemoirs.

THE PHRENOLOGIST AND THE RIVAL, SUITORS.-In the course of Mr. Andrew Combe's residence in Paris, M. S- (a foreign fiicnd) introduced to his daughter a lover whom he regarded as worthy to receive her hand, and to inherit his fortune ; but, unfortunately for the old gentleman's choice, the young lady had already found a lover for herself, to whom she was warmly attached, and as she had taken her mother into her con- fidence, she now appealed to her for support. The mother, after seeing both suitors, greatly preferred Eugenie's choice ; but the father's friend held a superior social position to that of his rival, and was therefore strongly sup- ported by the father. During Dr. Combe's visits to the family, they had frequently been struck by the acute and correct descriptions which, with the aid of phrenology, he gave them of the talents, and dispositions of indi- viduals whom he met at their circle, and whom they knew intimately ; and ns both parents loved Eugenie dearly, and aimed onl...

, THE SMITHFIELD DROVER. A uiglit drover, a verj' good-looking young - man, gave me the following statement. He had just left the market when I saw him, and wore a thick corduroy jacket, a strong leather i apron, and very coarse heavy shoes : " I am a night drover," he said, " aud have all my life been a drover. I don't remember my parents. They died when I was young. I'm l8 now, and I've got a living in Smith- field with nobody to help me» and have helped a j-ounger brother these 10 years. My name's-. My Christian name, sir?-I don't know what you mean. I don't know what a Christian name is.

TRADES' ARTICLES. No. XI.—THE PAINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 29 March 1851
TRADES' ARTICLES. No. XI.-THE PAINTER. BV ALFRED PYNE. The House and Sign Painter represents the common sense and material form of art-its household use and nature. Ile docs not embody imagination, but copies every day practical requirements. His is not the glowing poetry, but the sterling steady prose of colors. He does not study, he learns. Painting with him is a busi- ness, not a profession. The work of the Carpenter, the enterprise of the Shop- keeper, and the grace of the Architect would be destroyed or lost, without his conservative aid. The strong timbers would corrode and give way, leaving the noblest fabric in a short time a wreck, were the painter to discontinue his labour. He meets the first assault of the atmo- sphere and parries the subtle force of the all-destructive oxygen, by a skilful layer of colour. The sun himself is met in his vigour, and the summer-rays arc powerless to crack or split up the door or shutters, when skillfully covered by paint. The handicraft of ...

But women and mon, i' the frozen street, Are houseless-houseless every night ; And children, till tho cold, grey light, Trample tho town with weary feet. Deeper than frost, beneath tho mould, Pierces its way the garden worm ; Tho snail withdraws its horns from tho cold ; Thc ant in her nest keeps winter term, Green backed bootle, and slimy slug, And speckled eft, have quarters warm ; The woodlouse under tho bark is snug ; Tho earwig takes no wintry harm.

AUSTRALIAN NATIONALITY. To thc Editor of the Empire. Sin - Your highly talented "correspondent, " Spectator,'" has, and with good reason, declined to review tho proceedings nt tho Royal Hotel meeting on last Thursdny,'~27th instant. There was ono speech, or raphsody uttered, which demands allusion, inasmuch as its tendency is ttl create au ill-feeling against tho friends, and to strengthen thc enemies, ol' Liberty and Inde- pendence. 1 allude to tho intemperate speech of "Mr. Geo."

ORIG 1NAL CORRESPONDENCE. WHY "A TILLAGE TYRANT"? To thc Editor of thc Empire. Sin-I do not think that the plaintm in tho action Lawson v. "Weston, has in any way deserved tho strictures you have made upon- him in your issue of this day ; and had you paid duo attention to the case, you could not, I think, have failed to perceive, that tho doctrine, which tho verdict has established, may, and probably will, result in tho ruin of many a lia rd working farmer, What, I will ask, is likely to bo now tho posi- tion of the owner of a farm, through which such reads have been permitted to be used hythe public, through tho good nature, or carelessness of pre- vious proprietors ?
