OUR POETICAL CONTRIBUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 21 February 1851
OUR POETICAL CONTRIBUTIONS. SINCE the advent of our first publication we have had our share of " poetry/' heroic and lyrical, didactic and satirical-rolling in upon us in overflowing " streams," and flashing upon us in insufferable " beams," -sprinkling us with " showers," and smothering us with "flowers." We have been somewhat puzzled as to how we should dispose of the abundant stock of fancies in our hands ; our space is too limited, and our feelings in the matter are too tender, to allow us to deal with them, so as to satisfy our editorial conscience. But a happy idea has occurred to us,;-we will give these " beauties" to our respectable contemporary, the Herald, to make up his monster sheet on a Saturday ! ¡, From the mass of productions lying in the corner of our little unfurnished room, -for such, gentle reader, if tho truth must be told, is "our office"-we select the following verses to grace our own columns. The rest will be duly forwarded as ambro- sia to the Hippopotamus !...

THE SCHOOL OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 21 February 1851
THE SCHOOL OF AETS. WE are very desirous that this Institu- tion-Sydney's single scientific society, should he rescued from the miserably in- ¡ efficient condition into which it has fallen, and made, what it was designed to be, a lever to elevate the working classes of this city, and an agent in forwarding the ad- vancement of the colony in literature and science. We desire to see other " arts" than the arts of doing nothing, attempt- ing nothing, accomplishing nothing, and the art of throwing cold water on every really practical^ suggestion, cultivated in this "School." The grant from govern- ment, we would remind the Committee, is designed for the people's benefit; and it is something worse than mere mono- poly-it is positive dishonesty-if the money is not expended so as that end may at but attained. We know that it is easy to cry out for the fiftieth time, " O, we are doing our best. The people are so apathetic. It isn't our fault. " Of course not. Old women will be garru- lous a...

A DIALOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 21 February 1851
A DIALOGUE. AMONG the very interesting dialogues which took place in Dr. Lang's case on Tuesday, the following, in honor to Mr. Icely, is deserving of record : Re-examined by Mr. Martin : You are a non-eleotive Member of Council, are you not? Iain. You remember the case of Dr. Lang just re- ferred to ? I do. Did Dr. Lang say anything on the occasion ? Yes. Ho addressed the Council at great length. Were there many Members of Council present besides yourself? Yes ; a great many ! How many ? Twelve ! ! ! . * * * . * . What is tho meaning of this ?-" And as tho ship and her cargo realised so much more than covered the claims of these creditors, to whom, in equity and justice, did the surplus belong ? Witness declines answering the question ?" I think it means that I had done something of which I ought to be ashamed. Does it mean nothing more ? I cannot say. What do you give as its meaning in the infor- mation ? It means simply that Iliad the power to pay the creditors and that I had poc...

SUPREME COURT. THURSDAY. Before the Chief Justice and Mr. Justice &nbsp; Dickinson. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; IN RE SAMUEL TERRY HUGHES. The arguments in this case were continued this morning. The Solicitor-General, Mr. Foster, and Mr. Broadhurst, who appeared for McEvoy, the creditor, argued in substance that he was justified in relying upon the insolvent's representations as to his expected fortune, and that the insolvent had duly acknowledged the correctness of his accounts; &nbsp; that the insolvent had, by his conduct through- out, disentitled himself to equitable relief, the rule being that those who seek equity must do equity, whereas the insolvent, instead of offering to pay any portion even of the claim, had, by the issues raised by him in the action at law, repu- diated the whole of it ; that the ratification given by the insolvent upon his coming of age was &nbsp; binding at law, having been given voluntarily and &nbsp; w...

LINES SUGGESTED BY THE ' UNFURLING OF TUG LEAGUE BANNER. Seo! liberty's bright stars o'er all the land Are rising-and the azure flag unfurl'd; Their light the darkness of dishonor's brand Dispels-their radiance illumes the world. Conquer in this !-not unto thee alone. The vision spake, imperial Constantine ! For o very lip, und every heart will own The lesson hallow'd by the sacred sign. Confiding then in him who bore the cross, 1 j Let us proceed to cheek th' advance of Bhame, And bravo all evils rather than the loss Of all that man holds dear-an honest name. Conquer in this-let all tho voice obey, Unite in freedom's cause both heart and hand, And may our children bless the joyful day When liberty's bright stars rose o'er the land. W.A.

THE AUSTRALIAN PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY— [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 February 1851
TnE AUSTRALIAN PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY.- | Our contemporary the Freeman's Journal is, we believe, in error in imputing to this Society the abortive attempt to send home a selection of Aus- tralian products to the great Industrial Exhibi- tion. If we mistake it is not the Horticu. taral and not to the Australian Society to which the dis- grace of the failure, if any such exists must be attributed. We are the more ready to make this correction, as we believe the labours of the latter society, ever since its establishment have been extremely creditable, and are calculated to ac- celerate both our commercial and scientific pro- gress as a colony, but more particularly on^ac ! count of their present laudable endeavours to ! originate an Australian Industrial Exhibition, I analogous to the great National one at Home.

Whenevor a rasoal strove to pass, Instead of silver, money of brass, Ho took his hammer, and said, with a frown, " The coin is spurious, nail it down," John Littlejohn was firm and true, You could not cheat him in " two and two ; " When foolish arguers, might and main, Darkened and twisted tho clear and plain, Ho saw through tho mazes of their speech The simple truth beyond their reach ; And crushing their logic, said, with a frown, " Your coin is spurious, nail it dotvn.u John Littlejohn maintained the right, Through storm and shino, in the world's despite When fools or quacks desired his voto, ' Dosed bim with arguments, learned by rote, Or by coaxing,'threats, or promise, tried To gain his suppórij to the wrongful side.
