The Empire's Letter-box. A VISIT TO NEW ZEALAND. CHAP III. — " ADVANCE AUSTRALIA." [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 25 January 1851
The Empire's Letter-bos. A VISIT TO NEW ZEALAND. CHAP III.-" ADVANCE AUSTRALIA," CHRISTMAS day dawned with promise of fine weather, the sun smiled merrily, and the sea was smooth ns glass. Great preparations had been made for a feast according to old English Custom ; and when we assembled, round the table, which groaned under the fruits of our. opportune visit to St. Paul's, we forgot the childish animosities and bicker- ings which our long confinement en- gendered, and drowned our enmities in a brimming glass oí ale round. The near pros- pect of landing, contributed greatly to make us cheerful, and we passed ns pleasant a daj' as any we had pot through since our embar I kation. Port Phillip now becnme the only ! subject of conversation, and many a bet was made about the dny that we should land. Frequent and anxious resource wns had to the chnrt8 and the reckoning-and we began to hope we should welcome the new year in Australia. In this hope we were not dis appointed. Early on Sunda...

THE WORKING CLASSES OF GREAT BRITAIN. Their present condition, and the means of their Improvement and Elevations A Prize Essay; By the Rev. Samuel G. Green, A.B. CHAPTER IV.-VARIED ASPECTS. EVERY general statement ' with respect^ to onr working classes is manifestly open to considerable I qualification. In every locality, nay, almost in j every factory and on every farm, the leading fea- tures of their condition are modified by an im -measurable variety of influence. Some distinctions j aro so marked, that it will be needful to dwell upon' them a little in order'to avoid tbe confusion that would'arise if,. without such specification, the. working classes of England were spoken of as a whole. The agricultural labourer, the country-town artizan, and the factory-worker, may be regarded as typesj under, ono or other of ' which' the great' .majority these classes may be ranked. I.

His cheek bones aro high ; his eyes emit a certain baleful light* . which is exceedingly unpleasant to look at, his forehead is-to quoto Shakespeare" villainous, low." His dialect is a curions patois compounded of slang and blasphemy. Ho is " a picker-iip ofunconsidered trilles." His notion» aro thoroughly socialistic. With Prudhon, he considers property is theft. His hands aro horny, and seem spe- cifically formed for the crowbar. But ho displays an in- credible flexibility of the fingers.

THE WOWONG CLASSES OF GREAT BRITAIN. Their present condition, and the means of their Improvement and Elevation. A Prize Essay. By the Rev. Samuel G. Green, A.B. CHAPTEE IV.-VARIED "ASPECTS. ( Continued from our last.) * II. * The artizan in our smaller towns presents, in many respects, a fairer picture. His wages are better. His home, when undefiled by vice, is more commodious and seemly. He can, most probably, read and write. His children attend to day schools, where the lessons are intelligible, and sometimes well given. There is altogether a fair opportunity for a worthy and an earnest life. Yet he unconsciously suffers, in a measure, from the' same great social evil as that which abandons the agricultural labourer, uneared for, to his degra- dation. The separation of classes is still denned and inveterate. Working men are left to the . sympathies of their own order al mosli exclusively. Their employers have no more than a business connexion with them ; and, as to the rest, leavo...

Wnat was the particular case relied on for this charge ? It was that of the ship "Fortitude," which, nffer a long passage direct from Eng- land to Moreton Bay, was reported to have a dangerous case of sickness on board on her arrival, and was ordered into quarantine. 32. How long did she lie in quarantine? From the 26th of January to the 6 th February, 1849. 33. Were there any deaths at the quaran- tine station ? , None. Indeed, the people were all re- markably healthy, and the circumstance that led to the ship's being placed in quarantine at all was the death of a young woman on board about three weeks or a month before her arrival in port. 34. It had therefore been a...

cmr COUNCIL. (Continuedfrom last Friday's issue. THE MAYORALTY. Councillor Simmons, in addressing the Council upon the motion' which stood in his name, must be permitted to say that ho rose with a very unenviable feeling. He felt bound to take blame to himself for not having boon present when the . discussions relative to the mayoralty wore going on. Bub disagreeable as the duty undoubtedly was, lib would, in justice to the citizens who placed him there, endeavour to perfovm it, fearlessly, though, with as littlo offence as au honest expression of candour and truth would permit. Cotincilion Flood read tho motion. Councillor Simmons presumed it- was quite optional whether the motion was read then or "after.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 27 January 1851
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Empire. SIR,-I wish yon would take an opportunity of hinting to our Superintendent of Police, that it is not his place to be always on the Bench doing the duty of a Police Magistrate ; and that his proper stihere of action lies in preventing and detecting crime. With all his faults, it strikes me that Captain Innes kept the " runners," up to the mark better than has been done since he lost his situation. Within the last six months the same number of desperate burglaries has been effected in one short street in Sydney, and not one of the thieving villains I believe has been brought to justice. I am, Sir, yonrfl, A SUFFERER.

GENERAL HAYNAU.-General Haynau arrived at Ostend on Saturday morning, ana shortly af- terwards left for Cologne. The manner in which he had been treated in England was well known in that city. Every one rejoiced that the woman flogger had been soundly thrashed. When it cot wind that the old butcher had arrived, the in- habitants in great numbers assembled in front of the hotel, and commenced hooting and yelling, and displaying their hatred to him in roost un miâtakeable terms, and were about proceeding to acts of vengeance, when the police were called in and protected him from violence. There was great excitement in the city, and it was thought that Haynau would he smuggled awoy during the night. The Times briefly alludes to the affair. it says-" The police of Cologne had to protect General Haynau from the violence of the Demo ( crats of that place, who wished to imitate the *. draymen of,London."- Weekly Dispatch. ;
