Original Correspondence. DISEASED MEAT. To the Editor of The Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 14 February 1851

Original Correspondence. DISEASED MEAT. To the Editor of The Empire. SIR-The writer of the paragraph in your   journal of this date, headed "Diseased Meat," has come to "a most lame and impotent conclu- sion" in reference to the report of "the Commis- sioners to inquire into the prevailing epidemic." So far from its being "satisfactory," as having   a tendency "to quiet alarm," it is calculated to justify the apprehension generally entertained of the unscrupulous conduct of those who are tempted by, the "auri, sacra fames"-the cursed thirst     for gold-to sacrifice the health of their fellow creatures on the altar of personal profit. The fact acknowledged in the said report, that   " there are sufficient indications in the early stage of the disease to shew the fact to the butcher," incontrovertably demonstrates that he may knowingly, and recklessly, be the agent of trans- ferring disease from the cattle he slaughters...

" National education insults the poor, hy telling them that instruction must he forced upon them ; it insults employers, ns it shows they do hot give sufficient wages for tho poor to pay for their own education ; it insults the clergy and the Established Church, who have received sö much for instruct- ing tho people, and tells thom plainly (and I fear too truly) that thoy> havo misapplied it; it is ^insulting, .to tho nation at large. I cannot but I'thiniv'thtit if Government were sincere, they could .'throw down some ot' those greatest barriers which retard the education of tho poor. They would abolish nt 'once tho Btamp and. advertisement dnties, and tho''tax1 on paper ; they would reduco tho expenditure, to raise suflicient for which presses so hard'úpon that class.

'"AN APXTHETIÖ OOI;ONX,: BOMB bf our Sydney poets wU0jMWvfci&4r occasionally by ethereal inspiration,-. sing' or say a great deal about the blue cloud-f less skies, the sunny ambient air, the1 delicious greenery, and the glowing fresh? ness of the young life of this new and glorious colony,and so forth. All this would look well enough, no doubt, in a hot pressed, neatly-printed octodeeimo/atidset off with the charm of easy-flowing..,verse.
