    Excerpt from A Lecture on South Australia: Including Letters From J. B, Hack, Esq. And Other Emigrants

    You very likely may feel disposee to say to me, (for I hear the observa tion daily,) What! Would you send out of the coun ry its hardy pea santry, the young, the vigorous, and the ardent, the fiesta: oi' the land P Would you ask us to cultivate the distant soil of Australia, while we have so many thousands of sews of merry England lying batten? Would you persuade us to leave our fsther-land. For which Hampden and Sydney bled and Alfred legislated, which Newton has rendered illustrious in science. Bacon in philosophy. And Shakespeare in desthleu song! Would you have os leaveoeuglantl. The wonder of surrounding nations, and the' my of the world? This is all no doubt very fine} but let na salt the labourer his condition. He will tell nu that the number of applicants for employment is so great, that he hits to submit to low 'wagcs,'labor being all that he has to give in exchange for food and taiment: he has therefore to work harder for less remuneration. And his conditi on is one of painful and degrading poverty.-that he is badly clothed. Scantily fed, and his house indi¿'erently furnished. If we inquire into the 'condition of the capitalist, the manufacturer, the farmer, the tradesmen. We shall he told that competition is so great, that their profits are lowered, and that their capital diminishes. A man who has capital is puzzled to know where he can int it without loss another who wishes to apprentice his son, is perplexed by finding all trades equally overstocked. If we turn to what are called the learned professions. We shall find nearly as many doctors as patients, as many lawyers as clients.
