Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 January 1851

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Empire. SIR,-Every person complains of the an-> noying clouds of dust we are daily exposed to, anil yet every, or almost every person is pre- judiced against the idea of the city streets being watered by sea water. Why ? I know for a fact, having lived in those towns, tbatthe streets of Hastings, Brighton, and Worthing, are duly and sufficiently wa- tered with SALT WATER; but I never heard that the fashionable visitors to these places, are more prone to any opthalmic affection than inhabitants of other towns where fresh water is used for the like purpose : nor do tradesmen say their goods are injured by the . plan. Can you tell me if there is anything ' peculiar in the construction of the organ of Vision of the gqod people of this goodly city, or do the waters of ttie Sydney Cove contain any injurious element which those of the English channel do not, that so frightens our authorities from using it ? In my humble opinion it is a vulga...

THE WORKING CLASSES OF GREAT BRITAIN. CHAPTER 1. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 January 1851

THE WORKING CLASSES OF GREAT BRITAIN. CHAPTER 1. ii is tho misfortune of somo great questions to be overwhelmed with discussion almost at the moment of thoir proposal. Most subjects make <»5teir way gradually into popular debate, and the attention of me» in general is not turned to them until a stock of well'proved theory and accurate observation is ready to assist the deolsion, It is best that it should be sp, Eve» a public meeting without a committee to digest the business be- forehand, will inevitably be thrown into disorder, And when the whole body of thinkers, talkers, and writers in our land engage in sudden and un- premeditated discussion on a complicated social question, the crudoness and confusion that result are lamentable. The completeness and glory of the late triumph of Pree-trade are in a great measure attributable to the fact, that 70 years of quiet thought and spreading conviction had imssed since the recluse of Kirkaldy meditated lis " Wealth of Nations."...

PICKINGS FROM PUNCH MR. PUNCH ON CHURCH AND STATE EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 January 1851

PÏOKITTGS FROM PUOTCH ME. TÜNCH ON CHURCH AND STATE EDUCATION. MB. PUNCH has often mado his appearance at Wil- lis's Booms, but, being a decided opponent of " National Education upon strictly Church Prin- ciples," he kept away from the building last Thursday when tho friends of Church Education met to uphold their plan. Mr. P. declares that he is as much interested in the Education question as any Prelate, Arch- deacon, Warden of Winchester College, or Majes- ty's Counsel learned in tho law then present at Willis's; where, as of course they had hired the rooms for their own purpose, they had as good a. right to dance to their own times, so to speak, as other folks do at the same place, upon payment of their money. It is only in tho columns of the Times newspaper that M"r. P. reads a record ol' their proceedings : and of these, ns ho also is ¡i public preacher, he feels himself bound to speak. That eloquent Q. C, who presided over the meeting, and whose tongue is so sweet that even w...

Californian Extracts. EXPLOSION OF THE STEAMER SAGA- MORE. ' (From the " Illustrated California News/' November 15.) "Fire and water," says /Eschylus, "sworn foes of olden time, have phgh/ed their faith, and combined their forces for destruction." For the annihilation of the ill-fated craft depicted on our opposite page, the agency of one element sufficed ; but here where a second comes into play, where Erl King and Salamander the fire fiend, exert their joint and incongruous powers for mischief, the devastation is so much the more sudden and fearful. Harnessed together, unwilling yoke fellows, by the spells of man, the great ma- gician of Nature, woe be-unto him if through carelessness or over trustiul security, he ne- glect but fur a moment to keep them under the strictest subjection-to oppress them under iron servitude. Once let their chains be slackened, there is no riviting again j all is wrenched away before them. " On Tuesday afternoon," writes the Alta, " on a moment when ou...
