NEW ZEALAND CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 February 1851

NEW ZEALAND CONSTITUTION. WE yesterday noticed that a Great Public Meeting had been held at Nelson, on the -27th December last, for the purpose of transmitting to England an expression of opinion as to the prin- ciples upon which the future New Zea- land Constitution should be based. This demonstration appears to have been occa- sioned by an announcement by Lord John Russell, in the last session of Parliament, that it was the intention of Her Majesty'^ Ministers to introduce a bill for the im- mediate' establishment of representative government in New Zealand. The report of the speeches/ inclusive of the resolutions, which we subjoin, though printed in extremely small type, occupies no less than nineteen columns of solid space in the Nelson Examiner. In justice to the speakers, we must also add, that thc speeches on the whole were ex- tremely creditable, some of them display- ing bursts of eloquence which we have seldom seett surpassed. Sympathizing; as we most warmly do with the li...

THE EMPIRE. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1851. DR. LANG. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 February 1851

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1851. DR. LANG. IT "will bo seen by a report in another column that the Rev. Dr. Lang appeared yesterday at the police office to answer to a charge of libel, preferred against him by Mr. Thomas Icely, a nominee member of Council. Mr. Icely, it will be remem- bered, was one of the thirteen members who, during last session, agreed to an un- constitutional vote of censure on Dr. Lang's cdaduct in his late emigration movements. These gentlemen Dr. Lang, in a spirit of justice very natural to any man to whom justice is denied in other channels, has thought proper to punish with an unmerciful lampooning. After i starting his newspaper, Thc Press, at the beginning of the'year, he deliberately:'.setj about constructing a sort of literary pillory for his recent persecutors. Accordingly, irv an early number of Dr; Lang's Journal,; there appeared a new-fangled epic, en- titled the "Deil's Dozen," wherein the individual characters of the notable THIR- TEEN aro sketched o...

COLONIAL AMBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 February 1851

COLONIAL AMBITION. THERE is the germ of many a political truth to be found in the inspired pages of .our great dramatist. We can most of us remember the scene in whieh tho good Kingof France is endeavouring, without a threatened appeal to arms/to induce the usurper John to resign his wrongful sovereignty in favor pf his nephew Arthur, the rightful claimant j the respective mothers take part in the controversy, and, when other arguments fail, the senior tries the effect of persausion, coaxingly inviting the poor child to ooma to bis grandam, The mother adds in a tone of-b^teS/j Do child, go to it'grandam child . . . ,, /' Givo grandam Kingdom, and it' grandam will. Give it a plum, a cherry, anda fig; There's a good grandam. The poet has admirably prefigured in these lines the state of us poor Colonists, in our political relation to our imperial rulers. We found an empire by our in- dustry, and the mother country steps in and reaps the fruits. We complain of tho injustice of being den...

FRIGHTFUL BUSH FIRES AT PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 19 February 1851

FRIGHTFUL BUSH FIRES AT PORT PHILLIP. THE news by yesterday's mail from Melbourne embraces several accounts of Bush Fires which have devastated, in a fearful manner, some of the most fertile districts of the Southern Province. Western Port, the River Plenty, Pentland Hills, the Smoky River, the splendid country round Geelong, including the Barra- bool Hills and various other localities, have suffered awfully from thc devouring element. Whole homesteads, with substantial buildings and extensive yards of corn and haystacks, were utterly destroyed,and in several instances the destruction extended to loss of human life. The following extract from a Report of the Inquest on the bodies of six persons in one family destroyed, will give some faint idea of the magnitude of the calamity : INQUESTS ON THE SUFFERERS, AT MELBOURNE. An inquest was held on Saturday evening last, at the Travellers' Rest Inn, Collingwood, before W. B. Wilmott, Esq., Coroner, upon the bodies of Bridget M'Lelland, and...
