THE BRITISH FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 31 March 1851
THE BRITISH FLAG. THE British flag has hoon most innocently the cause of a great tleal of unmeaning hubbub, and abundance of frothy silliness, among certain people of this good city. It has been-for what reason nobody knows -dragged into all discourses, where it had no earthly business, both of wise men and simpletons, lt has made Methodist ministers epiite martial at public meetings, and it Jins stirred up antiquated naval captains to the perpetration of bunkum speeches in the Senate. On tho mention of the British flag (God bless it !) tobacco merchants have waxed florid and metapho- rical in their advertisements, and small witted young men, like one Mr. Gee, have felt their senses evaporate at thc tips of their cars. Thc British nag, forsooth ! what to do with it has any ono of the tribe of its traducers and defenders ? British manhood forbid that ever it should be surrendered to tho base denouncement of such soulless enemies, or bc committed to thc baser guardianship of such babb...

THE EMPIRE. SYDNEY, MONDAY, MARCH 31, 1851. SYDNEY AND ITS FUTURE REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 31 March 1851
THE EMPIRE. SYDNEY, MONDAY, MARCH Ol, 1851. SYDNEY AND ITS FUTURE REPRE- SENTATION. BY an advertisement in another part of to-day's paper, it will be seen that stops have already been taken to bring the "pressure from without" to act on tho Executive Government and the Legisla- ture, in a remonstrance against the unequal and unjust provision made in the Electoral Bill for the representation of Sydney. We believe the movers in this matter are gentlemen, who will not do the thing by halves ; but, on the contrary, who may bo trusted by the citizens to ad vocate their cause honestly and powerfully. It is next to impossible to overrate the importance of thc present moment, in mus- tering all our strength against the nefari- ous attempt made by a base and truckling government, upon our liberties. Whilst the citizens have been slumbering in fan- cied security, their, enemies have been vigorously at work. If this slumber be unbroken, it is easy to forsee the conse- quences. The Squatters of...

CORNERS.- Corners have always been popular. The chimney-corner, for instance, is endeared to the heart from the earliest to the latest hour of existence.-The corner cup- board ! What stores of sweet things has it contained for us in youth-with what luxuries its shelves have groaned in manhood !-A snug corner in a will ! Who ever objected to such a thing? A corner in a woman's heart! Once get there, and you may soon command the en»ire domain.-A corner in the Temple of Fame ! Arrivk at that, and you become im- mortal.-Eliza Cook's Journal. CAUSE OF THANKFULNESS.-Besides one gentleman nnd two ladies, travelling in a stage-coach, in Vermont, there was a smull sharp-featured, black-eyed woman, who had questioned her companionsto her satisfaction, and had nothing further to do, until the arrival of a lady, deeply veiled, and dressed in mourning, who was no sooner in, and seated, than the little woman commenced her exami- nation as follows :-" Have you lost friends ?" " Yes, r have." " Was...
MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. VISIT TO THE CORN-LAW RHYMER. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 31 March 1851
MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. VISIT TO THE CORN-LAW RHYMER, After a rule of IOU miles, ou a cold, clear, frosty day in December, 1838, I arrived at Sheffield, much pleased at my journey's end, and the warm welcome of a good fire in an inn. Nest day I called . upon a friend who took me th rou i» h the town, and showed me the country found. The chief objects of attraction are the manufactories and show rooms of cutlery,: which are rendered doubly, interesting by thc civility and intelligence of those employed in them. But what chiefly interested nie was the poet. The first time I snvv this remarkable man, he was coming out of a bookseller's shop in the neighbourhood of his own business premises, in Gibraltar street, for he had removed from Burgess street. I immediately recognised him by the portrait in his works, published in three volumes, by Sheill, of Paternoster-row, though he looked older and yet better. I followed him into his premises, but, though I was not a minute behind him, he h«...

On many points, and in many particulars ot* the government of Sir William Denison, wo have agreed with him, and have given him our humble, j but sincere support ; wc have appreciated his Ex I cellcncy's efforts to advance tho interests of tho colony ; we have viewed his often ill-timed «and injudicious effervescence of temperas the failings of his nature, and found an apology for it ; we havo credited him with the accomplishment of sonic real good, and every unprejudiced colonist will acquiesce in our sentiment,-but it must be borno in mind that in effecting that good, Sir William Denison has simply expended the means placed at his disposal for tho purposes for which it was entrusted to lum : tho industry of the colo- nists lias been taxed to furnish him with tho means to improve their condition, and in giving him credit for expending those moans judiciously, wo fulfil our duty...

Tun PKNXY-A-LIXF.IÎ.-I know a man in London, who followed the precarious trade of a penny-a liner. This worthy was a regular barometer in tho "accidents and offences" line. Whenever a lull occurred in tho chapter of accidents, poor F. was the picture of misery and starvation. Some- times I would meet him on Hungerford Bridge, late in tho evening, just returning by tho half- penny steamer from à fruitless day's roaming ia the purlieus of tho city. " Dull day, this," would lie say, " my boy. No dinner this blessed week, and my poor wife worn to death with lier needle- work." " God bless you, Fred," was my answer, "como over to tho ' Craven,' and I'll stand a disdi of stewed steak and oysters, and we'll hope for a allocking murder by-aud-bye." And then we would trudge through tho "tempting market and sigh, "Oh! that we had our pockets full !" and then we would go into tho coftce-ioom, he all relieved, and I all fearful lost my credit in tho place should havo come to an end ; and with a...
