THE SYDNEY JUSTICES. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 February 1851
THE SYDNEY JUSTICES. OUR excellent contemporary the Herald, has lately been appearing in the character of schoudmaî-ter, and the debut has been singularly clumsy'an'd unfortunate. Its pet pupils, the "great unpaid," whose daily attendance on the police office roster, our contemporary hits,1 with' the patient assiduity of a careful'' chronicler/ long been in the habit of recording, have of late been so remiss in the discharge of these duties that their faithful historian, a few days ago, relinquished his task with disgust. The murder now comes out. The good boy lictures which their well meaning, but injudicious friend, reads them, reveals the true character of the wrong doers. What has been commonly presumed to be remissness, culpable, it is true, but venial, proves to be nothing more nor less than the vilest political rancour. These Sydney Justices, holding the Queen's commission, have, it appears, entered into a compact to avoid the discharge of their magisterial duties so long as ...

THE EMPÏ1Î1. ~ i SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1851, MR. GEORGE HILL-THE INCAL ' CUL AB LE MISCHIEF BEING DONE BY. HIS FOOLISH AD- MIRERS. " The great distinction of a country is that it produces superior men:. Ita- natural-advantage* are not to be disdained. But they ure of secon- dary importance. No matter what races of animals a country breeds. The great question is, does it breed a noble race of men ? No mutter what its soil may be. The great question is, how far is it prolific of moral and intellectual power ? No matter how stern its climate is, if it nourWv force of thought and virtuous purpose. These an» the products by which a country has to be tried, and institutions have value only by the impulser which they give to the mind."-CHANNING. In order to get a correct, and some- thing like a full view of the extraordinary and plague-like infatuation which seems to have smitten this community in regard to Mr. George Hill, it will be necessary for us to glance at the history of the last ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 February 1851
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of Tim Empir«. Sin,-The working classes of Sydney have good causo to bo thankful to you for your constant and unwearying efforts to get our poor old Sohool of Arts placedupon a better footing. Tho fact is, that the old' body in the institution havo never I cared a straw about the interest of the working classes in tho matter ;-their only desire has been to get their old oflice boarors re-olected year after year, and for this end their policy has been to keep tho institution down, because any great increase in the number of members will eflectually deprive them of tho power of packing the com- mittee. And what have they been taking all this pains for? only to give themselves a little bit of importance among their neighbours, and enable' thom to brag about their disinterested exertions for tho working classes, and what a thankless and ungrateful sot they are working for, TheT is a littlo piiBsago in the People's Journal,^ which I trust you will e...

PORT PHILLIP. " BLACK THURSDAY." [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 February 1851
PORT PHILLIP. " BLACK THURSDAY." IN its most literal sense, meaning, and accep- tation, the "oldest inhabitant" of Geelong does not recollect such a day as yesterday, Thursday. It surpassed all previous expe- rience of hot winds and sandy whirlwinds. The mormug was bright and balmy, and the breeze from the bay was grateful to those who sought its restorative influence. But about half-past seven o'clock jn the morning, a sudden chango occurred. The north-west horizon was seen to he suddenly obscured, and presently a dense and lolty cloud or'dust was observed to move bodily downwards to- wards Geelong, borne ou the wings of the hot blast, which struck on the sense with a a feeling ot sudden and overpowering suffocation. The appeaauce of the moving mass of sand, or-" rather fine dust," which filled apparently the whole space be- tween enrth and sky,' Was > very similar to the descriptions given by travellers of the sandy nd hot whirlwinds which sweep across the deserts of Arabia, or...
