I saw the first be» ginnings of savage hnman societies, now entirely forgotten and blotted ont by the enveloping ocean cf time. I glanced hurriedly as we passed upon tbe splendours of ancient Babylon, the magnificence and cruelty of the Pharoahs, the almost forgotten grandenrofthe Persians. I would have stayed to look closely on Athens the lovely, to admire its stately monuments of art and its triumph of learning;' on glorions Borne too, once proud mistress of the world, with her conquering legions, and sovereign citizens, fed and amused with the spoils of an Empire; but my guide said 'Come,' and impatiently pointed omward — 'These things are of the past,' said he, 'and I would show you the living breathing present.'

So desperately indeed did they wage their war against the men with the new ideas that they succeeded in &nbsp; preventing the committee from carrying ont the work for which it was called into existence; and the propertied section even bolted the committee's funds — and have not yet rendered an account to the general committee of the funds received and disposed of by them.

One reason why the powers were in Oiina to day was to force new markets for their' over-stocked commodities. Capitalist expansion was necessary for the maintenance of the present system ; it acted as a safety valve. The unequal manner in which pro duotion overbalanced consumption made it imperative that markets be found. Notwithstanding that New South Wales produced primary commodities in excess of any other country, the posit...
