THE WORKING CLASSES OF' GREAT .: BRITAIN. ' \ ? Their present condition, and the means of their, / Improvement and Élévation! A Prize Essay. , By thc Rev. Samuel G. Green, A.B: r 8 i CHAPTER IV.--VARIED ASPECTS. (Continuedfrom our last.) |¡ A hostile attitude, however, is always an atti- tude of discontent ; and the antagonism of our i working classes to existing systems is essentially ! a posture of expectation. Weary of negative doc I trines, they are longing for the assertion of some i principle that shall guide them to a better state of ! society, in which it shall be possible to do more than ! struggle or resist. Ten years ago, thousands of them fancied they had discovered their ideal in ! theories of Socialism. They have since awakened, ! and lo ! it is a dream ! But they are waiting yet. The Ten Hours' agitation, the Anti-Corn Law movement itself, so fur as they participated in it, were but occasional outlets of an eagerness :which any fair promise of social regeneration nay,...

CONFE8SI0X 'OF ONS . OF THE MURDERERS,; ' It will be satisfactory to the' public to know that the above dreadful xwoUrtence* is now completely brought to light by the confession of'."qne^ of* the guilty parties.' /Although " verylittlei ' moral doubt existed that the persons! who are in custody were in reality the'authors of the crime, yet; there was very great difficulty iii obtaining the necessary, legal evidence to establish their guilt, arid it is possible that they might have escaped "justice"" if one of them had not made a confession. xOf this fact there is not the least doubt, and tWfollow* jng'particulars upon the subject may be relied upon. It appears that on Monday afternoon Hiram Smith, one of the ? four ' men'in custody itpon the charge of murdering Mr. Holiest, ex- pressed a desire to see Mr. Keene, the governor of Guildford gaol, where he is confined, Btating that lie had something of importance to comm uni cate to him.

THE EMPIRE. -," WEDNESDA Y, JANUAR Y 29,. 1851. VICTORIAN BOUNCE. THE Melböürue Argus of the 21st instant has, an article on the Anti-Transportation Conference in which, as . is the wont of that Journal, whenever occasion offers for a word on the convict question, an unlimited amount of abuse is bestowed on Sydney. We do not re- member an article, against Transportation in the columns of the Argus, which had I not a friendly taste of this sort. And when our contemporary is thoroughly in the vein for such sport, he can, to do him justice, get,up as pretty an exhibition of Colonial bounce as one could ever hope to witness. "> We drove away the Randolph! . and the : Sydney 'people eagerly picked ^ up . the filth which w.e flung from'us." This is the burthen of the song which to. him will never grow a burthen,-rthis is the witch's straw which he is ever raving at, and-cannot get over, -the eternal lullaby, of his, baby fancies.
