COLONIAL RADICALISM. — OUR OWN CREED. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 December 1850

COLONIAL RADICALISM.-OUR OWN CREED.. Itis often said that there is no distinctive   shade of politics yet marking the face of colonial society. As the badge of slavery falls from tho bondsman who plants his foot on British soil, so the bandage of toryism drops from the eyes of him, though born in the " established " fogs of an an- cient home-spot, who comes out to live in the fresh light and air of the Australian Colonies. We have no conservative with us, for what should he conserve save the smile of the blue heavens, and the bland- ishments of nature? Neither have we radicals nor reformers, for happily we have no abuses to be reformed and no social evils to be eradicated. It is but a few days since we heard a gentleman, who, twenty years ago in England, spent a princely fortune, and the higher wealth of a classical education, and the still greater properties of a fine intellect and a generous manhood, in the battle of reform, now complaining bitterly that there was not...

THE SEA SERPENT,-A huge monster of the the deep has been, within the last week or two, disporting itself on the Irish coast. It was first seen in Dublin Bay, by several gentlemen, from the yacht of Mr. Hogan. A few days afterwards it created the utmost terror in tho crew of one of the Royal Irish Fishery boats, passing through tho basket Sound, on tho coast of Kerry. The most recent account of it is given by Mr. Roger Travers, in a letter to the Cork Constitution, dated Courtmasherry, August 29th. After stating that fish of every description had been driven close to the shore, in shoals, "literally leaping ashore," he says, " About one o'clock, a.m., when sailing in my yacht, with a slight breeze offshore about two miles to the south of the beacon erected on the 'Barrels' rocks, one of the party of four gentlemen on board (Mr. B., of Brandon) drew attention towards tho structure mentioned, with the interrogatory of ' Do you see anything queer about the Barrels ?'

To the Editor of the Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 December 1850

To tht Editor oj the Empire,   Sir-The general interest whioh is manifested for the first apperance of The Empire, will be a sufficient excuse for the following remarks. Tho City of Sydney, in proportion to its popu- lation, has, perhaps, been more fertile In News- paper Literature, than any other correspondingly civilized spot of earth in tho universe; but there has always been, and still is, not only In the City of Sydney, but in the whole Colony, a literary desitaratum yet for tho first time to be acquired, and that is, a thoroughly Philosophic' Radical Newspaper, The complexion of our newspapers hitherto has been, either an expressionless mon- grelism, or a kind of patented colonial toryism,   if there has been any approximation to demo- cracy in the one, it has partaken more of the   bluster of the bully, than the philosophy founded upon indestructible principles, and if there has been any conservatism In tho other, it has been rather tho ...

THE ENGLISH PRESS AND DR. LANG. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

THE ENGLISH PRESS AND DR. LANG. THE news of Dr. Lang's proposal for the formation of an Australian League reached England at tho beginning of September, and appears to have created a considerable " sensation." The Times, Morning Chron- icle, Spectator, and Economist, all leading papers, considered the subject of sufficient "importanco'lO call ior serious comment, and each discoursed upon it after its own peculiar fashion. The first and last named papers, viewing the matter solely in re- ference to its possible influence on the Funds, endeavoured to allay any appre- hension that might ho excited amongst the " Bulls and Bears" of the Stock Ex- change by the news of symptoms of disaf- fection in an influential British colony ; and accordingly both wrote with a clover and intrepid ignorance of the actual facts of the case, which merits tho highest admiration. Tho Chronicle, while it spoko disparagingly of the Doctor, yet, doomed the subject worthy of attention in Downing-streot. The Spe...

TRANSPORTATION. - During tho last ! few weeks, a correspondence of an impor- tant character, has been carried on with the neighbouring colonies, by tho Anti Transportation Association, the most in tcresting result of which will probably be a Meeting of Delegates from South Aus- tralia, Van Dieman's Land, and Victoria, in Sydney in the course of a few weeks. The most activo feeling of opposition to convictism is still felt in Van Dieman's Land. In some of tho letters received, it is hinted that if prison ships still continue to arrive, the Launceston people will march across tho island to unite with the inhabitants of Hobart Town in resisting the debarkation of tho prisoners. The feeling has also been caught up very warmly in New Zealand. In all quarters the samo determination to protest boldly, unitedly, and unceasingly, against the in- fliction of Convictism on any of these colonies, has manifested itself.

Domestic News. THE LATE BOAT ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

Domestic Newa. THE LATE BOAT ACCIDENT. Wa gather chiefly from our contemporary the Freeman's Journal, the following particulars of the late melancholy boat accident. The two young Palmers wore sous of a widow lady, and were young gentlemen generally esteemed. The two sons of Captain Plunkett hod been acquainted with Mr. Macpherson, at Wollongong where they formerly resided, and prevailed on him to ac- company them in their fatal excursion, for the purpose of testing the qualities of a boat, which one of these gentlemen wished to purchase. It appears that Mr. Macpherson could nat spnro time for this purpose, except on Sunday. On last Sunday week the party of five left Wooloomooloo Bay in the Madge Wildfire, between two and threo in the afternoon. As they did not return that evening, it was thought by their friends that they might have gone up the Parramatta Uiver ; but Monday coming, without any tidings of the boat, great anxiety of course was felt for thejr safety. Captain Plunkett ...
