ELECTION FOR THE NORTHUMBERLAND BOROUGHS. To the Editor of the Northern Times.

If we intend to keen out the man we have already once rejected, we must be ready, at a moment's notice, to bring into the fiold somo candidate whom we can trust \ and, if we wish to securc his return, we must be energetic and united.

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 7 January 1857
COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. ScprosED Death rnoji Fire.— The body of a young man named Henry l'opo was, on Monday night, found in tho Bay. It appears that Mr. Pope, who was second moto of tho Emily Jane, left the vessel last Friday evening for the purpose of seeing the fire, and as no tidings had been heard of him since, it was supposed by his friends that, in assisting to check the progress of tho conflagration, he had been burned or buricu amongst the ruins. As a last re source, however, the captain caused a search to be made ill the bay, and tlio body wa* found near tho stern of the vessel. The faco appeared bruised as if from a fall, so that it is surmi9ed ho missed his footing on getting into the vessel in the dark. Wo understand Mr. Pope was a young man much esteemed, and lias left a wife and family in Sydney. — Oeclong Advertiser.

A PSEUDO-THUNDERER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 7 January 1857
S A FSEUDO-TI1UNDERER. The position of the journalist is one of the most ' influential ami honorable in society- He exercises na it were a despotic power over his readers, and is the oracle of the locality over which his influence * extends. Hi* power lor good or evil is almost un limited. Whatever appears in a journal must be true, 'because it's in the paper.' It will readily -be acknowledged, therefore, how desirable it is to have persons ol talent, integrity, and moderation, -na conductors of the public press. The dignity of tho fourth estate is lowered by the admission into ita ranks of foul slanderers and rabid partisans. The real well -wishers of the periodical press should determinedly set their face against such persons, ? whenever they have the hardihood or want of shame to unmask themselves. As a general rule we hold that the leading ? columns of a newspaper should scrupulously refrain from noticing a rival. In any case it is undignified to do so ; and if it .be done for t...
