It is called a novel-but, in truth, it is what this essay should be, a page of history, arid a leaf of the Chronicles of Pohticj. It is a photo- graph of "Life among the Spindles." The natiun is in its rose water cycle. Memory is short when men are busy and prosperous. " When" says tbe French proverb, " a rich man has dined well, he thinks the whole world happv. le is a long lane that has no turning. We are merely at the turning, be- cause we had dropped down to the very bottom of the lane. Atys stands grimly by, with her inexorable shares, and, looking on at the temporary jubillee of the nation, mutters. " Oa 1 you are well tuned now, but Til let down the pegs that make this music."

GERMAN FUNERAL.-We understand that the remains of Mr. Zeising, a German farmer on the River Plenty, who last Saturday when cutting some branches, had the misfortune to fall from a tree, occasioning his death on Monday afternoon, will be committed to the grave this day, at 5 o'clock, p.m. The corpse, aocompanied by some farmers of the neigh- bourhoood will be directed to Collingwood, and after being received there by some mem-   bers to the German Union, will be conveyed to the burial ground of Melbourne. Ac- cording to the custom of several German towns dirges will be sung in the burial ground upon this occasion. The deceased, who was a very industrious and sober man, leaves unfortunately a widow and child.

English Extracts. DR. LANG. (From the London Daily News, Oct. 25.) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 8 February 1851

English Extracts.   DR. LANG. (From the London Daily News, Oct. 25.) In the colonial news which we publish to-   day there is one item that will probably dis- turb the equanimity of Downmg-street, and suggest reflections not of the most pleasing tenor to all who take an interest in the affairs of our colonial empire. On the 27th July Dr. Lang was declared member of the Legis- lative Council of New South Wales for the city of, Sydney, having polled 970 votes, against 945 tendered for his opponent, Mr. Holden. Dr. Lang is known to the Eng- lish public as the organiser of an association in New South Wales, the ultimate objects of which avowedly are the separation of the Australian colonies from the mother country, and their erection into an independent state. Without attaching more importance to this election than it deserves, we cannot conceal from ourselves that, as indicative of tbe state of public feeling in the colony, it is an event of grave importance. ...

CHAP IV— MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 8 February 1851

CHAP I V.-MELBOURNE. I HAVE always loved the early morning breeze, and I rose to woo its embrace with a freshness of feeling, und a capncity for en- joyment, which was quite novel to me. With my eyes wide open, and my heart on my sleeve, I sallied forth to gee an appetite for breakfast. : Strolling up Collins-street, the fixât thing that struck^ me was. the little apology for a market, into . which 1 peeped, in the . hope of obtaining some fruit. But the supply was excetidingly limited, and the prices most exorbitant. So I turned on my heel to de- part ; and as I gave a contemptuous twirl to my long moustache, a queer looking colonist hailed, me in a sharp tone of inquiry. " Pray, Mister," said he, *. are you a soldier or a sailor?" "My good friend," I answered, as coolly aa 1 could, " I have carried a musket befóte now, and have been on the foretop-snil yard j why do you ask the question ?" "Oh ! nothing 1" logically replied the man, " enly, you see, I went- a nobbler with this her...

THE GORHAM CONTROVERSY, Report of the Judgment of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, in the case of Gorham versus the Bishop of Exeter, March 8, 1850. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 8 February 1851

THE GORHAM CONTROVERSY, Report of the Judgment of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, in the case of Gorham versus the Bishop of Exeter, March 8, 1850. ' ( Concluded.) But a few words must, before we con- clude, be devoted to the subject of the controversy itself, which has given rise for the present to so much unhappy di- vision,-for the future let us trust to so happy a prospect of ultimate union. . Into the details of the question it is not.. our intention to venture. Of this, with "per- haps even greater truth than of the kin- dred controversy on the Eucharist, we may well say, with Jeremy Taylor, ' Men have turned the key in this lock so often, till it cannot be either opened or shut, and they have unravelled the clue so long, till they have entangled it.' In the pre- sent instance such a task is rendered doubly hopeless hy the shifting and pur- poseless character of the whole dispute. No sooner do we grapple with an argument or a statement in this Protean contest, tha...

News from the Interior. HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 8 February 1851

News from the Interior. HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT.   COTTON.—We have information from some of the growers that the early part of this season was not so favorable to its growth as the last year, and from the very heavy rains that fell soon after the first planting a great part of the seed that our worthy member for   Durham got direct from the Sea Islands be- came rotten in the ground, and had to be replanted, from which second planting there are now some excellent plants that are suc- ceeding extremely well, and we learn that one of Mr. Bucknells tenants, on thePaterson, has a piece, at this moment, in the most luxuriant state of blossom. We also learn that some   of the plants from which the cotton was picked that the Manchester Chamber of Com- merce made their report on, as stated in the Mercury of the 14th of January, are now three years old, and that the crop from those this year will be most abundant, so that it is very satis- factory to leam ...

Coroner's Court. An enquiry was held yesterday afternoon, at Weedon's The Cherry Gardens, on the Parramatta Road, touching the death of Lawrence Martin, then lying dead in an adjoining house.

" THE BODY IS MORE THAN RAIMENT." (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 10 February 1851

" THE BODY IS MORE THAN RAIMENT." (Concluded.) There never can he competition in the" trade of tilling, however much the emulation, because, while we consume upwards of twelve millions of quarters annually more than we raise, and import an enormous quantity of butter, cheese, cattle of all kinds and pro- visions of every description, there is obviously a home market for a far grenter quantity of food than all our agricultural producers are enabled to supply, placing them thereby in the position rather of mutual co- operators in meeting a common want than of rivals of each other's prosperity. It is true, that by this equilibration of the departments of occupation and production we shall manu- facture less-we shall haye " to refuse many foreign orders"'-we shall, in seasons of great demand, be compelled to de- cline the execution of many commissions, which might be temporarily highly pro- fitable, but by keeping the supply uniformly short of tho demand, we shall never need to work sho...
