The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 2ND JANUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 January 1865

THE BALLAARAT STAR. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 2ND JANUARY, 1865. WE said a little while ago that the frontage   system here had grown to be a virtual mono- poly, and we took occasion at the same time   to intimate what in our view of the question   were available as at any rate partial correc- tives of the evil. There are two things to be   done, and both are difficulties. The rights of frontage claim-holders must be protected, and the rights of outsiders must be also protected from the engrossing monopoly of frontage claim-holders, as the system is now develop- ing. Nor is the conflict of rights and inte- rests between frontage holders and outsiders merely, or between frontage holders and block claim-holders or seekers alone. We have frontage companies at war among them- selves, and the complications promise to be legion and the chances of extrication infini- tessimally small. In our former remarks upon the subject, we pointed out that...

LATER NEWS FROM AMERICA. [BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.] (From the Argus Correspondent) SYDNEY, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 January 1865

LATER NEWS FROM AMERICA. [BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.] (From the Argus Correspondent.] Sydney. Friday. The Royal Exchange brings Californian papers to   29th October, and New York news to the 26th. The telegraph line broke down three days prior to the vessel's sailing. The press telegrams confirm the utter defeat of Early by Sheridan. Richmond papers estimate the Confederate loss st 10,000, including 1000 killed and wounded. Sheridan's forces scoured the valley on the 21st and 22nd, without finding the enemy. He supposes them to have broken up. Eleven thousand men are ordered to reinforce Early. Hood is still retreating before Sherman; the for- mer is suffering from want of supplies, and is likely to fall back on Alabama. Price, attacked by the Federals in Missouri, was defeated with heavy losses. and compelled to retreat, but afterwards defeated a small Federal force under General Blunt. A despatch from Grant states that on the 22nd October four Confederate ironclads attack...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 January 1865

NEWS AND NOTES. The Star hoists a new flag this morning, under which we hope it will not be less welcome to the public of Ballarat and the surrounding district than (we are pleased to know) it has been for so many years under the old. In adopting a new heading, we cannot but feel that it is somewhat ungracious to push aside the old one, under which we battled through the difficulties which always attend the initiation of an enterprise like ours; but we consider the heading which appears to-day for the first time more sightly and more appropriate than that which it has displaced, and so make the alteration in despite   of sentimental scruples. We have no doubt the Star will soon be as familiar in its new guise as ever it   i was under the old. In this, the first publication of a new year, we should have liked to offer for the accep-   tance of our subscribers and the public the   usual seasonal felicitations in the more ceremonious ...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 January 1865

MINING INTELLIGENCE. We publish in another column three decrees in the Court of Mines in the suits between the Great Western and Scottish and Cornish Companies, and between the Leviathan Company and McGill and others. These decrees are so constructed as to give dissatis- faction to all the parties concerned and appeals are talked of by all, or nearly all the suitors. The ques-       tions involved are so important in relation to the rival claims now set up by frontage holders and out-   siders, that the carrying of the matter to the Supreme Court on appeals very desirable for the   purpose of settling, if possible, some of the difficul- ties at present existing. The Corner on Saturday as duller than usual, owing to the brokers holiday, but there were never- theless a good many people about the place, and   little business was done in a private way. Nothing of moment transpired in relation to the value of any kind of stock. The United Extended B...

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. Saturday, 31st December. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 January 1865

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK. MARKET.   Saturday, 31st December. MESSES O'FARRELL AND SON report— Horses—The market was moderately supplied this week. We offered at auction to-day 97 head, about 40 of which were serviceable horses, that met with ready sale, at highly satisfactory prices. The remainder were very inferior animals for which no price could be obtained. A small mob of 10 head, broken and un- broken, from the run of John Cumming, Esq., Darling- ton, created lively competition; four good medium draught sold at from £26 10s to £34, and six inferior and   middling hacks fetched from £4 10s to £14, the whole   making an average of £18 5s 6d per head. The demand   for useful horses of every class is, as represented in our   last report, greatly in excess of the supply, and prices, which are at present rating very high, are not at all likely to fall for some time. We quote light draught colts and fillies at from £12 to £22...

MELBOURNE WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REVIEW. Melbourne, Saturday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 January 1865

MELBOURNE WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REVIEW. Melbourne, Saturday evening.   Export entries were passed at the Customs to-day on 2346 oz 17 dwts of gold per Barwon, for Sydney. The past week has been mainly devoted by mercan- tile men to the enjoyment of the holidays. The transac- tions which are recorded in the import market have not been numerous. A better feeling has been experienced in the market for breadstuffs. Subjoined is our usual weekly review of the transactions of the past week. A fair hand to mouth business has been doing in bulk ales, and for the lighter sorts suited to the requirements of the season, a tolerably brisk demand has been expe- rienced. A good deal of the ale now brewed in the colony is brought into competition with that imported, and is gradually growing into favor. There is very little of Bass's in the market, and for No. 4 £8 per hhd is demanded. Marian's has been taken into consump- tion at £7 10s to £7 15s. Carlisle ale is in good demand at from £7...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. Star Office, Saturday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 January 1865

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. Star Office, Saturday evening. Trade bas been tolerably brisk throughout the week, and prices have remained steady, and with but few alterations. The flour market remains unchanged since last week, and best brands may now be quoted at about £24 10s per ton. Chilian is at last quotations, and stocks are rather light. Teas and sugars are still dull, owing in a great mea- sure to the expected reduction of the duty on these articles. Bulk ales of the best brands are firm, but their con- sumption has, however, considerably decreased of late, owing to the colonial article becoming generally used. The timber trade appears to be in a flourishing con- dition. The produce market has been only moderately sup- plied this week, in consequence of the holidays and harvesting. Hay—The supply has been equal to the demand and prices remain unchanged. The quantity was 135 tons. Prices from £2 10s to £3 for bundled, and £3 10s for new trussed. Old hay nea...

WHOLESALE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday, 31st December, Messrs J. V. TARTE and Co. report— The amount of business passing during the week limited, the holidays having tended materially to affect the demand. Prices for all articles remain without change since last week, closing quotations being as fol- lows, viz:—Hay, £2 10s to £3 new bundled; £3 to £3 10s do trussed; straw, £1 5s to £1 10s; oats, 3s 6d to 3s 9d; barley, new, 3s 6d to 3s 9d per bushel; wheat, new, 9s per bushel. Messrs M'Dowell and Gray report—   Supply of new bay and straw still plentiful, green feed being nearly out of date. Sales of new hay were much easier effected, and should the supply be mode- rate better prices may be looked for soon. Straw dull of sale. Oats—Supply and demand about equal, prime samples met ready sale. New oats very few to hand yet,   prices according to sample and condition. Potatoes, nil.

GEELONG WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. Saturday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 January 1865

GEELONG WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. Saturday evening. Business has been very dull since last report. The Customhouse and Banks being closed during the early part of the week so disarranged matters that nothing like trade could be undertaken for the remainder of the period. All parties appeared to give themselves up to the festivities of the season. Breadstuffs have become firmer in price during the week, good brands commanding prices in advance of last quotations, and it is considered that they will not again recede till the appearance of the new wheat in the market. The shipment of wool daring the week shows a great diminution in quantity on previous weeks. The Champion of the Seas was towed to Point Henry this morning, there to receive the remainder of her cargo. The imports for the past week comprise the cargoes of   the following vessels, viz.:—The Boomerang, from Hobarton, consisting of 48675 palings, value £340; 9000 shingles, value £7; and 2060 staves, valae £25.
