THE EMPIRE. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1851. COLONIAL LOYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 13 February 1851
THE EMPIRE. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1851. COLONIAL LOYALTY. IP emotions of affection or fidelity can only be sounded in their depths, and the genuiness of these feelings only safely tested by hardship and adversity, then is the. loyalty ot England's Colonies not " above suspicion." Colonial virtue, not- withstanding all the fair things which have been written on our . sel£chastening endurance and our tenacious grasp of the parent's hand, is not exactly of that sort which meekly holds tho- oh eek to the smiter. Canada is not that tractable child, nor is the . slow-footed and quiet eyed Anglo-African an incarnation .of docility. And stern stuft" has been already manifested in the nature of the younger 'sons of the south. We Austra ^iaris, however comfortably the Herald ,'may talk of our happy looks of loyalty on a Regatta day,.soon begin to feel sour, when our tues get an extra pinch in English shoo leather. Nor is there anything un-English in this suscepti- bility of injury and injust...

The following is the nature of the pro- posed compact for uniting, into one grand league, the whole of the Australian Colonies for the purpose of resisting the threatened infliction of Convictism. It is one of the important labours which have resulted from the late Conference in Melbourne : The League and Solemn Engagement of the Australian Colonies, (declared by the Dele- . gates in the Conference held at Melbourne. &nbsp; January, 1851. Whereas, in 1840, by an Order in Council, the practice of transporting convicts to New South ' Wales was abandoned by the Crown, and, whereas, by divers promises, the Government of Great Britain engaged not to send convicts from the United Kingdom to New South Wales, New Zea- ., land, Victoria, or King George's Sound.

News from the Interior. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 13 February 1851
News from the Interior. MOUNT GAMBIER.-THE CENSUS. The census bas been taken here a couple of days since, and a more imperfect affair'I never know. Instead of the Government's cranium being enriched with usual information, the shelves of the colonial office will be encumbered with a lot of trash. Just fancy two columns being set apart for Sex and Remarks, as if the biggest dolt in the colonial office could mistake the gender, for instance, of Andrew Mucklefoot, or Mary Primrose; and as for remarks, we are not living, thank Heaven, in a penal colony, that our identity should be so strictly looked after. To make room for " Sex " and " Remarks," two important items of statistical information-Religion and Education-have been omitted.-Communi- cated-Portland Guardian, January 27. BUSH FIRES.-The Grange was never in &nbsp; so fearfully burned a state, as it is just at the present season. The forest north of the Fitz Roy, is on fire in several places, and exten- sive patches have b...

News from the Interior. LACHLAN. "We hiïve been informed by a friend who bas just returned from the Lachlan, that the rain which fell in that quarter on Saturday week extended a considerable distance down the river, which is now running. The grass has sprung about three inches in height, but unless there is a further supply of moisture,; the present excessive heat must quickly burn' it up. Several deaths have occurred in con- sequence of disease superinduced by using the stagnant water of the river for cooking j purposes. I JO m en se numbers of dead cattle are scattered in every direction. One water hole contains upwards of a hundred head, I and another about seventy. The country 1 about Canowindra is in a miserable state from i scarcity of water and grass. Indeed, it isa misapplication of language to speak of a scarcity of grass, for there is none at all, the country presenting a miserable appearance. The only wonder is how sheep and cattle exi^t at all. About a fortnight ago an e...
