To the Honorable E. Deas Thomson, Colonial Secretary. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 1 April 1851
Tö the Honorable E. Deas Thomson, Colonial Secretary. Sm-Tn accordanoo with your request, I havo put in writing my reasons for believing that tho accounts given by tbo blacks of the death of Leichhardt and his party arc without foundation, and that he may still be alive and saved by prompt assistance. The story brought in in '48 is palpably untrue, because none of his cattle have returned, as they would all have done from a much greater distance than he could have reached, in such time to allow news of his death to bo back to tho Balonne in October. The account given to me by the blacks in January last I do not behove, first, because it looks very much like the »ame story, with addi- tions : and second, because on thc previous jour- ney his mules returned from Beak Bango LO00 miles, and would come doublo thc distance tins second time ; they have not, so if any accident j has happened, it must have been far beyond the ken of tho Maroona tribes ; the mules would travel back much furth...

WHAT CAN HE DONE FOR LEICHHARDT ? To the -Editora of the Sydney Morning Herald. ' ("KNTMÎMKX-I beg to limul you a copy of a lottor addressed to tho Colonial Soei'otary on tho subject ot Ur. Leichhardt and his party. I wish to stato distinctly, what is only implied In the letter, that it is impossible for any party to j proceed, in peárcii of Leichhardt until this drought ; is broken up,, 'flic party may muster nt Conv missioner Mitchell's quarters, Maranoa district, ready for a start, but should keep a roof over their ' heads till the rain is over and the ground fit for travelling. This will a cause, a delay much to be regretted, .but better delay for a time and start in health tlian bo prostrated by fever and ague, tts they certainly would be camping out in such rains as may bc looked for after so severe a drought. I am, Gentlemen, . Your most obedient servant. GIDEON S. LANG. Sydney, March 29.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Empire. Sm-Will you bo kind enough to insert in your journal, a question I would ask'Mr. Aaron, touch- ing the logical deduction of that gentleman, in a letter " noticing a single expression in Mr. Salmon's letter published in thc S. M. Herald paper of the 17th instant." Mr. A. reasons, "Now, inasmuch as the tenets of Unitarians aro founded on tho teaching of the wan Christ Jesus," which forbid them to hate n\iy one, it is clearly absurd and illogical, and Therefore unjust, to ? chargo thom with hatred of their teacher,! Diu'ercneo'of ojjinion regarding his person, and attributes, does not justify such an accusation." The question I would propose to that gentle- man, is, does tho man Christ Jesus teach that where two or three aro met in ki» name, thero he will bo in tho midst of thom, and if so, is io a " matter of opinion " that ho teaches what is not true, or tliat tho mau Christ Jesus, can bo in two places .at tho samo time.

A JS'KW ZEALAND VIEW OK oe« LIIHÎL CASE. " Air. Parkes, proprietor of thc Umpire, is threat- ened with an action for libelling the famous pic nician Mayor, Hill. Wo have not lit upon the grounds of this action, hut we perceive Mr. Parkes, with tho indignant scorn of an intelligent, and intellectual man, is striving- hard to inculcate a higher tone of feeling in tho'Sydiieyitcs. He if honourably anxious that tho man selected to ti ll the first municipal office should possess some more generous attributes than the mere power of purse; and he is right."-Southern Crou, March Mth.

In tliis caso an order had boen made hy his Honor that Mrs. Ksthev Hughes should shew cause why a writ ol'attachment should not issue against her for not obeying the decree made ia this cause, whereby she was required within threemoiithsfroiu tho date thereof to execute a certain deed of con- veyance thereby directed to be executed by her. It appeared that the decree, which was made on tho 10th December, 18-10, had boon appealed from, and that tho appeal had ultimately been dotermincd in favour of the plaintiffs, and that, pending tho pro- ceedings on the appeal, they could take no steps under thc decree within tho time limited thereby. Mr. FOSTKK now moved to discharge thc order, contending that tho plaintiffs could not now pro- ceed under thc decree, it having become inopera- tive, by reason of the time having elapsed within which tlio deed was to bc executed.

THE CITY REPRESENTATION MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 1 April 1851
THE CITY REPRESENTATION MEETINGS. THERE are two meetings advertised for this day, to'consider what steps ought to- bo taken for securing a fair representation of this city in tho Legislature. One at three o'clock this afternoon, convened, wc believe, hy old friends of the popular cause, whose names will be associated with thc history of the country ; and one at seven o'clock this evening, announced also by gentlemen who have done the State ser- vice on other occasions. At first sight it would seem to bo regretted that these meetings should not be united in their efforts, but as they arc both of a prelimi- nary character, and arc certain to result in one general demonstration of feeling against the obnoxious proposals of the Government, the circumstance may be in reality rather considered as an evidence of the spontaniety and earnestness of tho movement, than as any sign of division of strength. The resolutions annexed to tho advertisement of thc evening meeting are thoroughly radica...

I THE COLONIAL MAGAZINE-contains; as usual, many excellent pnpers on subjects' that are now beginning to be much better understood thati formerly hy"the-great body of the people. "On the Police of India," is a very clever and well-reasoned article:; but' we cannotsny how far the suggestions are capable of being reduced to practice. ? ".Charters of Incorporation in India and the .Colonies," is well worth reading, and as the 'subject is to be continued, no doubt much' valuable information'will he given respecting the East India Company's Charter, which expires in 1854. From the "Ceylon Rail- way, " we gather that the scheme which was abandoned during the great commercial panic is likely to be carried into effect. " The Prospects of Canada West" are spoken of in' Athe most glowing terms, by a writer who ap i'toe.ars to lie remarkably well acquainted with .his subject. In his opinion the seeds of prosperity ate so abundant throughout this interesting portion of our dominions that nothin...

THE EMPIRE. SYDNEY, TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 1851. EUROPEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 1 April 1851
THE EM Pili E. »SYDNEY, TUESDAY, APRIL 1, J851. EUROPEAN. BY thc arrivai of tho Lady Sale, we have a few papers down to the middle of De- cember ; hut "\vc notice scarcely anything worthy of extracting. ; Parliament M'as prorogued to the 4th of February, then to meet for the despatch of public business. Affairs un the Continent appeared to be in a semi-torpid state ; with the ex- ception of Central Germany, which was monopolising all commotion to itself. The religious excitement in England consequent on the late measures of the Pope, could scarcely be said to be on the decrease, though all parties had, to some extent, expended their fervour. The wool sales had closed without any reduction on former quotations. Tho Paris correspondent of the Time's writes : " I believe I was the first who announced to you the passage of Mazzini through Paris, on his way to »Switzerland, for re- volutionary purposes, it is now certain. Some of thc Swiss journals having stated that Mazzini had gone . t...
