CITY COUNCIL, — FINANCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

CITY COUNCIL,-FINANCIAL, THE Report of the Finance Committee on the Corporation affairs, affords grounds both for congratulation and regret. It is a source of satisfaction to know that pro- vision has been made to increase the use- fulness of the Corporation during the present year, but it is a matter of deep regret that this should render necessary any considerable increaseof direct taxation. It clearly shows, that without endowment from tho government the Corporation can never become thoroughly efficient, unless indeed the Citizens consent to a most enormous and indiscriminate taxation. At present, the expenses of that body amouut to considerably moro thau half of its en- tire revenue, which, ou the average, does not amount to more than £0,000 or £7,000 a-year, and yet it is proposed, in the course of the present, year, to incur liabilities to the extent of nearly tbffi.Jtimes the estimated income. We do not, how- ever, wish to quarrel with the Council on this score ; on the contr...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

THE POST OFFICE.-The Board recently appointed to enquire into the alledgcd ir- regularities at the Post Office, assembled for the first timo yesterday. The business gone into was, we believe, merely of a pre- liminary nature. Before the lapse of another week, we hope to bo enabled to report that the investigation is commenced in earnest. In this enquiry, every facility must be afforded for persons who have felt themselves aggrieved to give evidence. Numbers of persons have suffered much inconvenience, and in many instances con- siderable loss, from the defective arrange- ments, or something worse, in this department. One gentleman called on us a few days ago, who had a registered letter containing upwards of £40, lost in its conveyance from tho country, without his being enabled to gain the slightest infor- mation concerning it. We must forego our intention of entering moro fully into the subject, till we see what tho Govern- ment board will effect. Wo rely on one member of that boa...

BRITISH COLONIZATION. NO. II. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

BRITISH COLONIZATION. NO. II. IN considering tho subject of British Colonization, it is important to keep in view the general causes which influence tho increase of tho human species, and its distribution over the face of tho globe. Wo have hazarded a somewhat startling assertion. Wc have said that in the lapse of another century the English tongue will probably bo,tho medium of communi- cation between one-half tho inhabitants of the civilized world. Let us seo how far statistical facts, and tho deductions to be drawn from them, will bear us out in our statement. The ratio of increase in the population of every country depends upon a variety of circumstances, among the most influ- ential of which aro its geographical con- figuration, and its political institutions. In old and thickly inhabited states, popu- lation increases but slowly. Often it re- mains stationary ; sometimes it will even recede. History affords several memorable instances of tho unpeopling of particular regions, w...

British Extracts. LOUIS NAPOLEON'S PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

British Extracts. LOUIS NAPOLEON'S PROSPECTS. . TUE recent tour of Princo Louis Napoleon in the eastern and western departments ol' Franco has served in a striking manner to show tho feelings of the French population towards him and his Intensions. Except in one or two instances he ins been uniformly received with a hearty and enthusiastic welcome, and with demonstrations of respect and confidence. Wo are no longer in the dark aa to whether or not he has survived his popularity, the enthusiasm of tho peasantry and the industrious classes have demonstrated iinniis takeably that the hold ho retains over their affections and sympathies is as great as when he offered himself for the Presidency of the Republic in December, 1848. Lnmartino'a popularity scarcely lasted three montliB ; Cavaignae's (if ho can ever be said te have had any) was aa short lived ; but Louis Napoleon's is still fresh and vigorous ; he still possesses tho 6,000,000 of suf rages that placed bim in bis present respon...

The Empire's Letter-box. A VISIT TO NEW ZEALAND, WITH A GLANCE AT PORT PHILLIP, AND AN ACCOUNT OF THE ISLAND OF ST. PAUL'S. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

The Empire's Letter-box A VISIT TO NEW ZEALAND, WITH A GLANCE AT PORT PHILLIP, AND AN ACCOUNT OF THE ISLAND OF ST. PAUL'S, CHAPTER I,-LONDON" TO THe LINE, Os the 13th of September, 1849, I embarked at Gravesend, with my wife and child, on board the Cornelia, 372 tons, Mickleburgh, master, bound to Port Phillip and New Zealand. My circum- stances were extremely narrow, and it was not without anxious hesitation that I took possession of the dark and dirty cabin which was to be our home during a long and tedious voyage to anothor world. Yet, when we weighed anchor on the fol- lowing Saturday morning, the 15th, and dropped down the river before a gentle south, westerly breeze, I resolutely banished all feeling of regret, and looked forward with hope to the coming on of time. " Omno ignotum pro magnifico." Many years acquaintance with colonial matters, and that, strange mixture of curiosity and restlessness which impels men to risk life and fortune in the pursuit of what is now, induced ...

Something to Chat over. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

Something to Chat over. Some idea of tho amount of travelling in America may bo formed from the fact that in the second week ¡ti .Ttinp the number of arrivals at four of the Ï principal hotels of New York waa 7000 a week, or 1000 per day. Three mushrooms have lately lifted a flagstone, weighing threo quarters^ of a hundredweight, an inch-and-a-hulf out of its bed, before a trades- man's door in Blyth. Nearly 150 tons of steel aro annually employed for making steel potts, producing upwards ol' 250,000,000 pens. Her Majesty, with a keen appreciation of the genius of Sir Robert Peel, and with a noble ex- pression of regret for his loss, has addressed an autograph letter full of kindness to Lady Peel. The Into Sir Robert Peel's father, on the anni- versary of his 78th birthday, iii 1828, presented a silver medal to each of fifty children and grand- children.

The Interior. (From various sources.) THE WEATHER. — DESTRUCTION OF DRAYS BY FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

The Interior. (From various sources.) THE WEATHER.—DESTRUCTION OF DRAYS BY FIRE. WARIALDA.—The continued drought has de- ranged matters considerably in this quarter, and if it continue there is no saying what may be the result. Anything like business is at a standstill. A dray belonging to, or at least partly loaded to, Mr. Blake, in August last, reached Hall's first water last week ; while the man was gone to look for his bullocks, the rubbish on the surface of the ground took fire, and convoyed it to the dray, so that when the man returned, the dray was all on fire, and it is said upwards of £50 worth of property was destroyed. Since I have been in the bush I have not seen hardship, in consequence of the drought, anything approaching to the present. To speak of transacting ordinary business is out of the question ; the only questions are, have you flour, tea, sugar, and salt, commodities the whole district is almost out of, and cannot feel certain when it may be supplied.—December...

Something to Laugh over. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

Something to Laugh Over   A suspicious husband, near Preston, watched his   wife, in the expectation of discovering that she had an ever strong love for the gin bottle. Seeing   her put away a bottle in a side cupboard, he hastily seized the first opportunity, and filling a glass, hurriedly tossed off a bumper of turpentine. Sir Fletcher North, the celebrated lawyer, was a man of coarse, overbearing manners. In ad- dressing the Court on some questions relating to manorial rights, he said, "My lord, I can instance the point in my own person : I have myself two little manors." Here Lord Mansfield interposed with one of his blandest smiles, " We are well aware of that, Sir Fletcher."-Law and lawyers. Miss Hamilton, in her book on Education, men- tions the instance of a boy so very neglectful, that he could never be brought to read the word, patriarchs ; but whenever he met with it he always pronounced partridges.
