NATURAL PROVISIONS FOR PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 29 January 1851
NATURAL PROVISIONS FOR PEACE. PROM tho ráin-drop world of the viewless animal- cule, to the outermost circumference of our solar system, reaching across the whole amplitude of mind, and breathing arid breathless matter, not even the arch-enemy of man himself could find a single, natural provision for war : nor could au angel of light, following in his track, detect a single hieroglyphic that could show, that the Providence of God ever anticipated any, other condition .than perpetual peace . among men. Every relation of:time, distance, and dimensions, which our earth sustains in the solar system, has a specific relation to this condition.j), T;h.O;,shapepf its orbit, and the inclination .ofjits axis,>have not varied a hair since the morning stars saqg^.to* gether ; and in that birthday of time,,they were , fixed in that Eternal Purpose to produce that end- less variety of soil and climate, and^thnVirifinite ; chain of'reciprocal necessities,- which should 'p'ütv the human race'nti...

ADDITIONAL PARTICULARS. Up toß o'clock last evening no further- intel- ligence relative to this dreadful tragedy bad been received by the police authorities at the chief office in Great Scotland-yard. The officers en- gaged in the case have beeu instructed,not to relax in their exertions to discover anything which. ' .may v Jead, rto;- the detection .of"the murderers,, or tend to increase the suspicion against the men at present in custody. There are some circumstan- ces in connection with these men which, not transpiring publicly on .Tuesday^ have hitherto escaped notice. It appears that they have long been known to the local police of Guildford an« Godalming.as very daring and expert thieves and the fact that they generally pursoed their nefarious operations together seems to have led to their apprehension. .When the circumstances of the attack upon Mr Holies t's house and person became known, the local police, with that acute- ness which belongs to the craft, at once suspected th...

* Into the distinction between real and nominal wages I have not entered. The matter in this connexion is, however, well worth a pass- ing thought. The nominal wages are the money paid ; the real wages what that money will buy. And it will now buy comparatively so little, be- cause of the large deduction made by the Govern- ment in the shape of taxes and duties. There will be improvement in this respect, too, when the Commons is the House of the People. ,'

The Charlotte Jane is the first ship that has arrived here from the New Canterbury Settle- ment: She was chartered in England by the As- sociation, and took out emigrants. The barque .Cressy was lying at, Port, Littleton. The Sir George Seymour, ship, and the Undine, yacht, with the Bishop of New Zealand on board, and the Castle Eden, were daily expected. She was bringing out Bishop Jackson, the gentleman de- signated for that district. A paper was about being brought' out there, named the Littleton Times, its first issue- was to commence on the 11th instant. " In all probability we may receive a copy per ship Randolph, which is bound for this port. This augurs well, for the young colony, and we trust to hear of its advancement. Th"e Charlotte Jane signalled the ship Johnstone, on Tuesday, about 20 miles northward of the Heads, a strong current from the southward. The Waterloo will be the first ship for London. ID all probability, she will sail on Sunday next. »% The two ships and b...

THE WORKING- 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. CUAPTEB IV.-VARIED ASPECTS. _ .-.; (Continued.) There are some'plain principles, which those who would achieve any social reform must ever bear in mind. These will be found more or less embodied in tho suggestions of the following pages. It is needless, therefore, "ter dwell-upon . them in the abstract now. One however, is ho important, that I may be excused for stating it here, at the risk of having variously and often to repeat it. This is, that any means adopted to secure the welfare of the working classes, must be thoroughly divested of an exclusive character. They must not, by their condescending aspect, convey tho notion of inferiority, nor by their patronising tone keep alive the spirit of subjec- tion. This, condescension aiid perpetual patron- age have done amazing inischiol. Working-class literature, working-clas...
