A SHIP CANAL ACROSS THE ISTHMUS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 February 1851

.A SHIP CANAL ACROSS THE ISTHMUS. Will this dream of three centuries ever end in reality ? Will all the talk and calcula- tions, conventions, and disputes, reckoning of expenses and profits, of benefits and for- tunes it would confer, go for nothing, or shall the idea wake into fact with the full day sun of progress and enterprise, and the great world of commerce and civilization witness the wedding of the two Oceans? Perhaps no scheme of the present day involves more weighty considerations than that of scooping out a passage way for ships through the mountains, which have been called the " back bone" of our continent-those " rock-ribbed" barriers which have so long resisted the billowy years of time, as well as the lashing tides of ocean, A great portion of European navigation and commerce, especially that of England, is deeply interested in the scheme. But to the United States especially is the question one of incalculable importance, and to noNportion of so much na to California....

REMARKABLE EFFECT OP TRAINING IN CATTLE.-Spending a few days in the Glen kens, a romantic district in the south of Scotland, and travelling in company with a friend, he directed my attention to a cow glazing in a field close by, partly oats and partly meadow. She was eagerly feeding on the grass by the side" of the corn, with noth- ing to prevent* her Yrom^eating the latter.- I Such a thing was "quite^, new.to me, and I | could not imagine how./to'account for it.

THE WOllKING CLASSES OF GREAT BltlTAIN. Their present condition, and the means of their Improvement and Elevation. A Prize Essay. By the Rev. Samuel G. Green, A.B. CIIAP. VI.-THE SCUOOI*. {Continuedfrom our last.) It should he added that the field of labour was at first most unpromising. It is something to say that it is a rural parish in Hampshire ; but more than this, Mr. Dawes found it thoroughly demoralized by the operation of the old poor-law, " the opprobrium of the country round." What, then, might not ho done in our more enlightened districts-our large towns? Loss, some would say, as far as regards the union of different classes, owing to the great number of private schools for the children of tradesmen and profes- sional men.

GUARD AGAINST FIRES.-Since the late disastrous fires which occurred m the neigh- bourhood of the town, and the hazard to> which every building was then exposed of, being consumed, a sufficient time has elapsed to show the utter folly of the proprietors of household property contenting themselveswith the thought that all apprehension ia at an end, and that perfect safety is restored. Some means should be set about at once, to orga- nize the inhabitants in preparation against a similar occurrence. The mass ot wooden buildings willi which the town is studded, and the quantity of inflammable material with winch it is stocked aud surrounded, ought to arouse the attention of Insurance Companies, Building Societies, and eveiy one interested in the preservation of their goods, by way of anesting, at the first oui bleak, calamities, so ovemHelming as that by which we have been threatened.

TW»e Gelten Harp, DEATH AND LITE, (Extracts from Tennyson's * Two Voices.1) These things are wrapt in doubt and dread \ Can it be shown the dead are dead ? The sap dries np-the plant declines, A deeper tale my heart divines. Why if men rot in dreamless ease, Should that plain fact, as taught hy these, Not make him sure that he shall cease ? Who forged that other influence That heat of inward evidence, By which he doubts against the sense ? He owns the fatal gift of eyes, That read his spirit blindly wise, Not simply as a thing that dies. Here sits be framing Wings to fly u His heart forebodes a mystery ; He names the name Eternity. That type of Perfect in his mind, Th Nature he can never find. He sows himself on every wind. He seems to hear a Heavenly Friend, And thro' thick veils to apprehend, A labour Working to an end. The end and the beginning vex His reason '. many things perplex With motions, cheeks and counterchecks. Ho knows a baseness in his blood, At strange war with somet...

No. VIII—THE SADDLER. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 22 February 1851

No. VIII.-THE SADDLER. MAN'S power and supremacy are ex- pressed in his dominion over the animal creation ; a hugo elephant, a strong ox, or a fiery horse, unstubborned and un- broken to his will, are sceptres of empire : the meanest peasant who sways these, is a great lord ; for there are obstinate resis- tance and keen intelligence in beasts; nevertheless, he rules them. He does more, so to speak, he civilizes them : from fierce, destructive brutes, roaming earth and destroying it, he tames thom down to obedient and useful servants, bending and warping oven nature itself, till tho free born dweller of the desert becomes a house- hold slave of patient enduranco and life- long fidelity and submission. But a greater victory is still man's; not one alone is conquered, but an entire race, and this for aye; so that wo forget they were ever wild, and treat them as by nature do- mestic and docile. There is yet a higher symbol of man's headship : he joins on to Ins own reason the sagacity ...
