Da. LANG.-Wo last week expressed ourselves on tho reception which Dr. Lang's project for tho separation of the Australian Colonies had met with in England. We did so without regard to Dr. Lang's other proceedings, aud with perfect unconcern as to how our remarks I might be taken by himself. Tho .subject was ono which invited our attention, and i wo entered on its discussion as best we were ablo, with views quite unprejudiced and altogether unselfish. Our conduct ap- pears to have been sadly misinterpreted. Wo thought nothing about lowering or elevating Dr. Lang one peg or " many pegs." Wc know full well, that we have no power to exalt him j and if ho sink in public estimation, it will bo of his own socking-assuredly not of ours. Wo know, too, what Dr. Lang "ought to bo in this country ; and none moro sincerely desire to seo him occupying his rightful position than wo. With the gifts which God has showered upon him, he ought to be tho plain, generous, noble Lang of Aus- tralia ; not ...

DR. BLAND'S TRANSPORTATION PAMPHLET. TUR following letter appeared in 1'he Times of the 26th September : To the Editor of The Times. Sm,-A3 The Times is sure to bo read by every person in Australia, I shall' be much obliged if you will permit mo to forward, through jou, a request to a gentleman of the name of William Bland, who appears to have something to do with "tho Australian Patriotic Association," not to transmit, per post, any moro of his pamphlets to parties in this country whom ho conceives dis- posed to interost themselves in what ho writes. On my return to town yesterday I found that my house-keeper had that very morning paid thu postman 14s. 8d. postage fora parcel forwarded to me by tho said Mr. Bland, with whom I am entirely unacquainted, and containing a couple of trashy pamphlets, which I of course forthwith oonsignod to my waste paper basket. If Mr. Bland'thinks that ho benefits himself or any ono oise by disseminating his opinions per post, he surely ought to have ...

LATTER-DAY PAMPHLETS.-Tins singular serios of pamphlets, edited by Thomas Carlylo, and published by Chapman and Hall, London, which has attracted attention from the circumstance of Slr. Carlyle's namo being associated with period- ical literature more than from any other perhaps, has now been completed ; and as wo have not hithorto noticed tho publications ns they appeared, we muy now entor upon the consideration of them in their collective capacity. They are, to all in- tents and purposes, another book by Thomas Carlyle, and cannot bo said to belong to period- ical literature, for although appearing at stated intervals since February^ last, they have nothing in common with its fugitivo and strictly popular character. Like almost nil tho -author's works, the "Latter-Day Pamphlets" aro disfigured Cy hardnesses of stylo, and singular for the origin- ality of thought displayed in them. Though containing very little which will inform tho world regarding tho distinct opinions of their au...

Somewhat moro to tho South, tho aspect of political affairs ls not less favourable to sound political views. Wo would not, indeed, trust to tho passing aspect of tho week ; but the politician cannot ignore even the most transient signs, though ho may not yield up his judgment to them. Something appears to havo failed tho I'restdont of the Fronoh Kopublio in his plans ¡ for it is now understood, thut instond of setting forth on another tour, ho brings his travels to an abrupt conclusion, on tho plea of " tho lateness of tho season." His being affected with neuralgia gives somo colour to that plea ; but another obstado is suggested, in tho emptied state of his purse, nnd reviving pecuniary "difficulties" in their most intrnctible form-also probable enough. A still moro probable conjecture is, that ho has found it inexpedient to leave the capital open to tho intriguings on behalf of other pretenders to monarchical power. Not that ho can fear much from pretenders who declare, as tho Due...

TRADES' ARTICLES. NO. 3—THE SHOEMAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 11 January 1851

TRADES' ARTICLES. BY ALFRED FYNE. . NO. 3.-THE SHOEMAKER. Tho distingushing mark of man's form is his position erect to heaven. Ile stands on tho earth as no animal does, (irmly ; heel to too planted on tho ground. But tho limb is naked, without scalo or horn to shelter it from tho sharp rocks and slimy loom. Man could not trend tho ground but only limp-did not the shoemaker's ort como in to ni'd nature. Half his nativo majesty, tho in-born nobility of gait, would bo lost, without tho skill of this tradesman. The limping pauper unshod, tho brogued clown, and the stately gen- tleman, aro all known by tho absence or presence of the craft of tho Shoemaker. If tho Indian's gait is noble, 'tis not his bnro feet that mnko it so ; but truo dignity of nature, despito exposure of the tender cuticle to the cutting stones and prickly briars ; and if tho louch and the clod-hop aro tho splay-badge of tho peasant, 'tis some bungling substituto for tho genuino art of this craftsman that hath mada ...

THE GOVERNOR AND THE MAYORALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 11 January 1851

THE GOVERNOR AND THE MAYORALTY. " SUCH is our habitual respect for all constituted authorities," as sayoth our circumspect contemporary The Herald, that wc aro greatly grieved to think an exception will bo found in our conduct with regard to Sir Charles Fitz Roy in the present instance. As is known to our readers, on the 16th of last month, Mr. George Hill was elected Mayor of Sydney by 10S9 votes ovor 229 votes recorded for Mr. Alderman Thurlow; and subsequently, by a solemn decision of the Supreme Court, the election of Mr. Hill was de- clared invalid on account of ineligibility, and Mr. Thurlow, tho candidate with tho uext greatest number of votes, declared tho elected Mayor. Wo, among others, were of opinion, that under such circumstances Mr. Thurlow would best obey tho dictates of honour by resigning an office held with the consent of so Bmall a minority of tho citizons. Mr. Thurlow, it appears, was of a different opinion. Ho took tho oaths of office and his scat as Mayor, with...

THE LIBERAL PARTS' IN THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 11 January 1851

THE LIBERAL PARTS' IN THE COUNCIL. WE often hear of the " Liberal Party in the Legislative Council." Some measure will be brought forward, or a certain movement out of doors is countenanced by tho " Liberal Party in the Council." So say the Tom-fools and literary non- descripts. Now, who constitute this re- doubtable party ? Are Messrs. Dangar and Martin component parts ? If it is intended that those sapient Solons who nestlo under the senatorial wing of Mr. Wentworth should bo understood, in this prestigious gibberish, as tho Liberal party, bettor types of it than your Dan- gars and Martins can scarcely bo found. Unless indeed this specious liberality is typified by a Fitzgerald. We know of no greater patriot than tho gentle- men alluded to, among tho admirers of " tho great son of tho soil." Whatever Mr. Wentworth may hnvo boon, in time of 3rorc, and with different men for his comrades, as the personification of a prin- ciple, it is indisputable that now-a-days he and his motley t...
