Mr; Jefferson protested against the decision of' the jbench, intimating his determination to go to gaol, irather than, by payment of the fine,. indirectly t acquiesce in its justice.

THE NEW CONSTITUTION. ' [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 24 January 1851
THE NEW CONSTITUTION. ' CONSIDERING that the new Constitution' has now been officially proclaimed, itj must be obvious to all sensible persons; that there is little time to be lost; if any; ? popular expression -of opinion is to be given on the subject of carrying out its; provisions. The inhabitants 'of-Sydney! ¡ ought at once to call upon the Mayor to' ¡ convene a public meeting to determine ¡ for themselves what principles should guidé the legislature in adapting a new Constitution to the political necessities of the country, The importance of the subject will not admit of delay ; and it is earnestly to be hoped that in the course of next week the necessary steps will be taken to bring public opinion to bear on its discussion in the ensuing-session of Council.,

A some-:; 1 thing of indignation, very natural; under the circumstances,, was undisguisedly: manifested by many on learning that Mr. Edward Denny Day'had been, appointed Provincial Inspector of Police, in the face ; of his late, ignominious dismissal from the office of superintendent. It was felt that he wa3 not exactly a model for a wife of Cresar. Again, it is freely stated that ¡ another gentleman, who was conspicuous among tho favoured ones, ow...

New Zealand Extracts MODEL OF RUAPEKAPEKA PAH. (From the New Zealander, December 21.) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 24 January 1851
'.? New Zealand Extraot». MODEL OF RUAPEKAPEKA PAH. (From the New Zealander, December 21.) WE have derived much gratification, and we may add,' some instruction also, from an in- spection of a model of this celebrated Pah, which hat been constructed hy Lieut-Colonel WYNYARD with an ingenuity, accuracy of plan and detail, and general completeness, which reflect the highest credit on that gallant officer, whom we are glad to see ia these "piping times of peace"-fighting over again in such a bloodless manner as this, the battles in which-in the real brunt of war,-he distinguished himself, as he doubtless would, do again, did a necessity unhappily arise. . The following descriptive statement aa shown to visitors at the Library of the Albert Barracks, where, hythe kind permission of Colonel WYNYARD, the model may now be seen by the public. This plan or model of Ruapekapeka, re- presents the appearance of the. place on the evening of the 10th of January, 1846, when the natives challenged ...
THE WORKING- GLASSES OF GREAT BRITAIN. CHAPTER III— PAST AND. PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 24 January 1851
THE WORKING- GLASSES' OF GREAT BRITAIN; Their present conditionr and the means of their ' Improvement and Elevation. A Prize Essay. By thc Rev. Samuel G. GrccnrA.B. ..CHAPTER HI.-PAST AND. PRESENT.. .A FALSE system, during tho period of its undis- puted reign, is attended by fur less inconvenience than the state- of transition to a bettor order of things» . A country is more tranquil, and on the whole more contented, under a despotism than during a revolution. This is a fact on which the short-sighted,-easo-loving world is very pronoto insist, ns though present quietness were a botter !'thing tbaii.frecdom, or truth, or life ! That the : fact is even ns tho world represents,, we readily grant. Tho West Indian slave was lighter ot heart twenty years ago than the emancipated negro is to-day; Franco was moro tranquil in the middle of tho eighteenth century than amid these struggling aspirations of, tho nineteenth ; the working classesof England were lnuqh less trouble- some before they...
TRADES ARTICLES. IV— GOLDSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 24 January 1851
TRADES' ARTICLES. BY ALFRED PYNE. IV.-THE. GOLDSMITH. From the useful turu we to tho ornamental, because, for the purposes of life, tho useful is not the solo good. Wo aro. beings of a compound nature-flesh and spirit-and ali our heavenward yearnings and tendencies ask the ornamental as a substitute for, and foretaste of, a higher ex- istence. The angel part of a man is his love for the beautiful ; and in proportion to his want of thie, is ho earthly and carnal. Women of all countries and ages have loved decorations more than mon, and herein is a subtle, spiritualized argument, that they are, to use the words of our female essayist, "TUE MORAL SOUL OF TUB WORLD." \v"hat were the lands without orna- ment?-sterile as tho ocean. But even the .barren sea is the mirror of many beauties, and in itself, it hath a hue transparent and lovely ; for all tho works of God aro eminently fair: tho very mists and clouds beconio sights of enchant- ment ns they ascend from man's dwelling. This too, i...

INTERIOR. NAIIROW ESCAPE.-Yesterday evening, about sundown, Mr. Janies Glas«, eábinet maker, was returning from East Maitland to West, and had got safely to the Middle of Wallis's Creek Bridge, when an unlucky stagger sent him against the side-rails, and they being very open, in an instant he slipped through nnd fell into the deep water beneath; several persons saw ..the accident and ran down to render assistance, but the weedy state of the creek daunted them till Mr. Carroll swam in nnd caught hold of Mr. Glass as he was sinking ; Mr. Carroll, found, however, that he could not get out again with Mr. Glass for the weeds, and he had to wait till a long pole was pro- cured and held out, hy which he waa pulled on to dry land again. Mr. Glass appeared not much the worse for his ablution.--Mait- land Mercury. A BOY DROWNED WHILE BATHING.-A melancholy accident occurred yesterday af- ternoon.
