Domestic News, [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

Domestic News THB PRESS,-The first number of The Press, or, as it is more commonly called, Dr, Lang's newspaper, was published on Wednesday last. Its first leader, ten columns long, is on the " Go. vernment Sham, or the New Constitution" and   displays that intimate knowledge of his subject and out-spoken resoluteness, for which Dr. Lang is remarkable, as a colonial writer. It denounces the " Sham " as a " gross outrage upon our po 'litical rights," and expresses " a decided opinion that the people of New South Wales will be utterly devoid of self-respect, as well as un-   worthy of political freedom, if they consent to receive it, without a strong and general expres- sion of indignation. We wish The Press every prosperity ; and we doubt not but the well-known great abilty, and the past public services of its Editor, will ensuro it a successful career. We will avail ourselves of this opportunity to do our part towards removing a misapprehension which appear...

Law Intelligence. SUPREME COURT. — TUESDAY. SITTINGS IN BANCO. BEFORE their Honors the three JUDGES. IN THE MATTER OF THURLOW. — APPLICATION FOR A MANDAMUS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

Law Intelligence. SUPREME COURT.-TUESDAY. SITTINGS IN BANCO. Before their Honors the three JUDGES. IN THE MATTER OF THURLOW.-APPLICATION FOR A MANDAMUS. Sir ALFRED STEPHEN, O.J. : Having already decided in this case that it was the duty of Mr. Peden, as the Councillor applied to for that pur pose by Mr. Thurlow, to have administered to the latter the oath and declaration required by law in that behalf, (Corporation Act, s. 49,) if Mr. Thurlow was then the legally elected Mayor, and that Mr. Thurlow's appropriate remedy in the matter is by Mandamus, in the first instance, in order to compel the performance of that act, be- cause he will otherwise be unable to enter upon the duties of his office, tho question remaining for decision is, whether Mr. Thurlow must be deemed and taken to have been so elected-a question which involves necessarily two others ;   first, whether the return of Mr. Hill, who had the majority of votes, was illegal ; and, if so, then, secondly, whethe...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 January 1851

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Empire. SIR,-The following extract of a letter re-   cently received from England by a respectabed resident of Sydney, contains, I fear, too faithful a statement of the prejudices still lingering in the public mind at home against us, on account of our suspected latent cravings for Convictism.   If you think it would at all interest your readers, it is at your service. Your obedient servant, AN AUSTRALIAN.

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

" There is a most ardent spirit for emigration abroad, and I wish I could see it directed to Sydney. Alas, the money seems to be wasted on New Zealand. I have urged several families with small capital to invest it in New South Wales; the reply is constantly 'I will go nowhere to be ruled by a dominant Convict party !' This will prevent thousands and thousands from coming out to New South Wales ; I regret this, but I do think it serves the peoplo right for their selfish policy, in allowing so readily, for the sake of temporary interests, a Renewal of Transporta- tion. Should a move in favour of the reception of Convicts take place, you will see that very little respectable emigration or capital will come to you. When I urge the advantages to be derived from emigration to New South Wales people say, ' It is in vain holding out advantages, I will not degrade my sons nnd daughters by sending them to live among a class who cannot feel right from wrong.' A cousin of mine Mr. . . * . who h...

Chamber of Commerce and Manufactures. Manchester, September 20, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 11 January 1851

Chamber of Commcrco and Manufactures. Mnnolicster, September 20, 1850. Gentlorucn,-Conformably with my promise, I hnvo submitted tho three samples of Australian Cotton, which you woro so kind ns to transmit to this Chamber, to tho examination of dcnlors and spinners, and I proceed to glvo you a report thereon, founded upon tho opinions I have re- ceived. I may remark, at tho outset, that although I find trilling differences in tho values which have been put by individuals upon tho respectivo snmplos, yet "all whom I hnvo consulted concur in this, that a largo supply of any of thom would bo hailed with extreme satisfaction in this country, and that they would find a ready sale. The sninpfo No. 1 contuins a'considerable mix- ture of stunted or yellow cotton. Tins stained cotton is not generally liked by our spinnors, and it would bo advisablo to prevent tho staining if possible. Tho discoloration arises, in almost all cases, from tho pod having been suffered to remain upon tho plant l...
