POETRY FOR THE PEOPLE. THE HEART'S CHARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 April 1851

' POETRY FOR THE PEOPLE,.'" THE HEART'S CHARITY, ''' A rieh man walked abroad one day, And a poor man walked the selfsame way, When a pale and starving face came by "With a pallîd'lîp. and a hopeless eye, And,that starving! face presumed to stand And ask for'bread from the rich man's hand ; But the riclfman-sullenly looked askance, "With a gathering frown and a doubtful glance, " I have nothihg,"" said he, "to give to you, Nor any such rogue of a canting crew ; «jet work, get work ! I know full well The whining lies that beggars can tell." And he fastened his pocket, and on he went, With his soul untouched and his conscience con- tent. Now this great owner of golden store Had built a church not long before As noble a fane as mau could raise, And the world had given him thanks and praise ; And all who beheld it lavished fame On his Christian gift and godly name. The poor man passed, and tho white lips dared To ask of him if a mite could be spared ; The poor man gazed on the beggar's ...

THE DROPPED CHILD.-In a room open- ing from a squalid yard, where a number of listless women were lounging to and fro, trying to get warm in the ineffectual sunshine of the tardy May morning-in the "Itch Ward," not to compromise the truth-a woman such as Hogarth has often drawn, was burtiedly getting on her gown, before n dusty fire. She was the nurse, or wards womau, of thai insalubrious department herself a pauper-flabby, raw-boned, untidy - unpromising and coarse of aspect as needs be. But, on being spoken to about the patients whom she had in charge, she turned round, with her shabby gown half on, half off, and fell a-erying with nil her might. Not for ¿how, not querulously, not in any mawkish sentiment, out in the deep grief and affliction of the heart ; turning away the dis- hevelled head : sobbing most bitterly, wring- ing her hands, and letting fall abundance of great tears, that choked her utterance. What was the matter with the nurse of the itch-ward? Oh, "the dropped chil...

THE CONFERENCE RANQÜET OF LAST EVENING. '; ' TUB Banquet given in honour of the Dele- gates from the Southern colonies carno off last evening ; and Ave have not often wit- nessed a more complete and brilliant affair ' of the kind. The speeches all through the proceedings evidenced an earnestness and unity of purpose worthy of the august event. Much thought had been bestowed on tho great question by nearly every man in that assembly. Those Avho spoke, by the depth and compass of their re- marks, and those Avho were listeners, by their well-timed manifestations of ap- proval, showed clearly that their minds were not only made up, but »uule up on the right side of a subject which they Avell understood. The address of Dr. Lang Avas perhaps the most bold, de- cisive, and powerful ; that of the Rev. Air. West, tho most comprehensivo and eloquent.

THE HOME OP TASTE.-How easy it is to be neat-to be clean. How easy to arrange the rooms with,the most graceful propriety. How easy it is, to invest our houses, with the truest elegance. Elegance resides < not with the upholsterer or the draper-it. is not put up with the hangings and curtains-it is not the mosaics, the carpetings, the rosewood, the mahogany, the candelabra, or the marble ornaments ; it exists in the spirit presiding over the chambers of the dwelling. Con- tentment must always be most graceful ; it sheds serenity over toe scenes of its abode ; it transforms a waste into a garden. The home lightened by these intimations of a nobler and brighter life moy be wantiug in much which the discontented desire ; but to its inhabitants it will be a palace, far outvying the oriental in brilliancy and glory. FOREIGN CHESTNUTS.-Large quantities of chestnuts are being imported at the present time from . abroad, comprising entire cargoes of the article, the produce of the ...

THE QUARTZ MINING. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 April 1851

THE QUARTZ MINING. We have been favoured with the following judicious remarks on the subject of the gold mining operations in the gold quartz country -its capabilities, &c, &c, from a very intel- ligent friend who has just visited it: 'ihe subject of "qunrtz veins" in this country has thus far met with but little at- tention from the press, most probably from the fact that very little reliable information could be obtained. Many statements, highly exaggerated, have appeared in print, but these were most probably made for private purposes. The '' Southern Mines," so called, are exceedingly rich in " quartz veins." In and around "Burns' diggings1' and the Mercedes river, many discoveries have been made, showing that the quartz in that region will become a source of long profit to those engaged in mining. Mnny persons are, how- ever, deceived in their ideas of the difficulty I with which the gold can be got at, from see ' ing very rich specimens of ore, und naturally co...

The Wc&lcyan and the Presbyterian, the Epis- copalian and the Roman Catholic,-are all equally participant in Governmental patron- age, and consequently must be presumed TO be equally truthful in their teaching. Otherwise the system is founded upon a grossly unsound principle, namely, that truth and error are equally worthy of official countenance and public support that the distinction of right and wrong ran form no part of the business of Go- vernment. That these four sects of religion- ists cannot be all right, is solf-ovident from the fact that their views upon the same subjects are directly and confessedly antagonistic. And if it bo admitted that they are not all right-and we think it is moral...

LOCAL ENTKRPRISK.-AVe learn from.Mr. Austin that he has purchased all tho ore brought to grass at the Corongora minc, and more lately about seventeen tons from Mr. Tom's mine, at the-Cor- nish settlement. There arc now upwards of thirty tons of calcined ore on the road from the mines to the metropolis. Mr. Grayling has been employed by Mr. Austin to assay a variety of samples, and we are informed by the purchaser that ho is highly satisfied with the result. The ore is packed in small bags containing about three-quarters of a hundred weight each, and is intended for ship- ment to England, to be there smelted as an expe- riment. The results, when known, will furnish data upon which to base calculations as to the prospects of success which the mines hold out to speculators. This very bold step stamps Mr. Austin as one of the right sort for a young com- munity. With a few more of his calibre, we might safely calculate upon going ahead, and no mistake. AAre heartily wish him success in h...
