THE WORKING- CLASSES OF GREAT BRITAIN. Their present condition, and tho means of their Improvement and Elevation. A Prize Essay. By the Rev. Samuel G. Green, A.B. CHAP. Y.-EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYED. ( Continued.) A great Roman moralist made beneficence to bea part of justice It is to be lamented that we moderns and Christias have so little under- stood this profound truth. For it is ono which behoves to be remembered, both in our commerce and our charity. That is not true justice from which the principle of benevolence is absent ; nor is that truo benevolence which exalts itself at the expense of justice. I have written to little pur- pose in the present chapter, if this truth has not already been brought out ; and it may be yet further illustrated in reference to another great duty often incumbent upon the rich. I mean that of almsgiving. Here, indeed, arises a diffi- culty, greater by far than any other in tho whole circle of relations between rich and poor. How to relieve poverty wi...

Kow Zealand Extracts. ÜIATAKAKA. COAL.-There is every pro- bably that con!, in a slate to be worked, exists on property held under a Crown Grant at Matakana. Surface indications of a promi- sing character abound, and specimens col- lected from various parts of the property may be seen at the premises of the proprietor, Mr. William Greumvood, in Queen-street, Auckland. The desirability of obtaining Coul on the East Const, in this district, and the great advantages of Matakana as the locality, are facts too obvious to require any remarks to secure attention to them. ¡ For the purpose of exploration it would be sufficient to bore in two or three of the most favorable situations, at un expense not exceeding ¿?300.

MORETON BAY. TRANSMISSION OP CHEQUES AND OR- DERS.-The hue mail roh bury lins revived a suggestion which we think had been made ou ti former occasion, for the purpose of adding security to the present mode of transmitting o ide rt.' an tl cheques through the mail. It is simply for the person remitting the drafts to write across the face of them the names of the persons to whom they are remitted, making them payable to them only. This course would, by making the drafts useless to others, considerably abridge tho existing temptations to robbery.-Moreton Buy Courier, January IS.

THE EMPIRE. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1861. THE MISSING DOCUMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 February 1851
THE EMPIRE. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 4. 1861. i --------^ I THE MISSING- DOCUMENTS. IN noticing this matter we must briefly relate the history of it. Some weeks ago certain notices of motion were as usual deposited in the Town Clerk's Office. "Within a few hours afterwards it was discovered that these papers were missing, aud notwithstanding the most deligent i search, could not be found. A committee of the council was immediately appointed to enquire into and report lipon the matter. That committee entered upon their duties with an evident determina- tion to fulfil them ; and after several days tedious and disagreeable labour succeeded in bringing up a report based upon ample apd apparently impartial evidence. The obvious tendency of that report, however undesigned or undesired, was, to. implicate a certain member of the council in the criminal offence commonly known by the term " light-fingered " bub better under- stood in this instance by the adjective "light-headed." Humour soon found ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Empire, [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 5 February 1851
Orifio»! Oorr«spoB4*B9«v . , To the Editor of The Empire, Sf a,-lt appears from a Scribbler; in Monday'« Jterald, that the destruction ot" the Nativo Dog j is to re-establish the prosperity of the Squatters by enabling them to do without shepherds, Thus (if practicable) depopulating our extensive Wilds, and depriving them of tha few white inhabitants now scattered over our immense area. The old adage " Quern Deusinuit' perdefe prius dementat," truly applies to these, gentlemen as a class, billy their propositions' are too absurd for serious contemplation. '. ». .'. Like Deas Thomson's averages and analytical disquisitions, suoh as dividing the flocks and herds of the country by the inhabitants, and allotting so much individually, (as exhibited in his annual statistics, «fcc, &G.,) they only excite a smile of derision in the mind of the patriot and philanV throphist for their extreme absurdity. Neither flocks nor herds will continue to be productive unless the country ^become...

OaUfbrolan^Bxtrctpts, ; , yr THE Poon.-The : cold and rainy season : has commenced and it is likely there will be consider- able suffering among the'poor. It is 'important* 'therefore, that our city authorities and our citizens generally adopt some measures'to alleviate their sufferings.- If left to themselves,' many must find a premature grave, and; perhaps many -from hunger and other causes may be driven to a course 'of life that must be disastrous to them. It is a happiness to any good man to know that he has afforded relief to the sick, indigent, and helpless. Steps should be taken to secure wood, clothing and food for this class of our fellow citizens at' once. We hope that some one more familiar with their wants and the means of rendering them aid and comfort than we are, will start in this good work.- California Daily Courier, December 9th. The President-of the City Council of Sacra- mento has informed that body that more money was needed to complete the Levee. By a motion of...
