The Golden Fleece, 14th September, 1855.   To the Editor of the Times and Southern Cross. Sir,—My attention has been called to a paragraph in your last publication, headed " the Local Court and the Lawyers" I deem it incumbent on me, as a very palpable allusion has been made to, and a marked censure has been passed on the mode of conduct adopted by me in the case of Mackintosh v Lockie, to inform the writer that it is not a practice of mine by "nods nudges and mysterious whisperings " to in-   terrupt any one (much less my own client) when ad-   dressing the judges of any Court.   But I will tell the writer what I did—when my client retained me to conduct his case I applied to the chairman and member of the Local Court to be...

SELECT POETRY. WOMAN'S LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 September 1855

SELECT POETRY.   WOMAN'S LOVE. Treasure the love of woman; 'tis a thing That throws a halo round the loftiest lot;   And in the bosom worn with suffering,   Creates one ever green unfading spot.   Should fortune frown, and summer friends de- part, Whene'er they see prosperity decline, Then if the love of one fond woman's heart, In all its self-forgetfulness, be thine! That true unchangable affection deem A gift more precious than the wealth of earth ; And by your actions prove that you esteem Aright, her priceless tenderness and worth.   For in the hour when heavy sorrow spreads A gloomy shroud o'er scenes that once were bright, 'Twill be to thee the silver star that sheds A holy lustre o'er the brow of night. 'Tis like the spotless herald-flower of spring, The first and fairest of the floral train, That 'mid the snows of winter blossoming,   Whispers of hope and happiness again. Or like the deathless "ivy...

GEOLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS. Daring an Excursion from Mel'ourne to Mount Macedon, M'lvor, and the Goulburn. Part I. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 September 1855

GEOLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS. Daring an txcursion from Aiel'ourne io MuUnt Macedon, Bi'lvor, and Uis tíouUtarn. l'art I. The following observations were, made dur ing an excursion into several oí the adjacent country districts, including Mount Macedon, Âï'ivor, and the Goulburn. These districts are of the greatest interest to the geologist, ju eventing og (hey do, every indication of one ciay becoming the scene of active mining oper ations, and of giving employment to a teem ing population. To the general reader, these observations are presented in the hope of at tracting a larger share of attention than has hitherto been awarded, to the illogical re sources of this continent, and more especially of Victoria. Geology is now fairly yoked to the car of j Commerce ; and, thougli the youngest of the i sciences, bids fair to add as greatly to its im ' petus as its more venerable compeer, Chemis try. Though far from deriding the study of geology as a substructure for the thousand and-one ingen...

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 September 1855

EDUCATION. j There are few vocations which ought to be held in such high esteem, and do in fact, hold out such strong incentives to a really pure ambition, as that of the teacher. 1 ake, tor instance, any of oar large pub lic schools. What boundless opportunities for exercising an influence upon thc ris-ing generation are enjove i by the Head Master of Eton, Harrow, or Rugby ! Hy the ne-, cessity of the case, he is a despot His will is law ; his authority is supreme and un controlled. So far as the chi id is the father of the man, he may be said to hold in his hands the fate of hundreds of human beings, and, through them, of thousands and thousands more. According as his system is good or bad, according as he is careful in the choice ol his subordinates, according as he aims to eiacate rather than to instruct, so must he be regarded as a blessing or a curse to the community. At the most critical perioi of ilieir lives he has to mould the minds of those who, soon after they have left...

LOCAL COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 September 1855

LOCAL COURTS. The right of self-government is   one of the highest prerogatives of freemen : to gainsay or abuse this noble privilege is equally reprehen sible. Hence, for some time past, we have anxiously watched the de velopement of that grand principle of democratic progress, so wisely conceded to the Victorian gold fields in the establishment of Local Courts. Universal suffrage, with out respect to country, class, or clime, was the groundwork for cre ating this popular power, and it is gratifying to observe that the nine representatives of the people's choice c*-i Ballarat were chiefly miners—men well known for their probity and intelligence, as well as being fully versed in mining matters.   To give constitutional effect to the decisions of this tribunitial as sembly a Chairman, privileged with   the magic power of J.P., was re quired, under our present European system of monarchical institutions ; and as far as Ballarat is concerned a wor...

Three members, with the warden as chairman, should form a quorum, and that i...

LOCAL COURT. ARCHIBALD V. NOBLE AND PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 September 1855

LOCAL COURT. ARCHIBALD V. NOBLE AND PARTY.       This was a case brought for a full share in a   claim, which was refused by the defendant. James Archibald, on being sworn, stated that he had worked on a full share for some time at the claim, and had divided some gold. They were swamped out, and their tools and imple- ments were left, until they got an engine to drain the hole. In the meantime, the de- fendant Noble jumped the claim, and made up his own party, keeping me out of my share, which I now seek to recover.   James Smith stated that he was a mate of the plaintiff's and defendant's; the hole was left for some time, owing to water, and he for one wished to sell the tor, and have nothing   more to do with it, but the party did not agree to do so. About 12 days elapsed after the party   had left the claim before defendants jumped it. The claim was not shepherded during this time. Simon M'...

THE STAR. SATUEDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1855. ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 September 1855

THE STAR. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1855. ADDRESS. In presenting our first issue to the public of Ballarat, we do so in the fullest confidence that our ac quaintance thus commenced will speedily ripen into friendship, and that "THE STAR" will soon be as familiar with our free and indepen dent mining population,as "House   hold/Words." The power of the   press has long and firmly been es tablished, and it shall be our careful study whilst we uphold it in all its integrity and plenitude, to avoid the evil effects of its abuse ; and to shun personality and scurrility in even the most remote degree. The press is the palladium of liberty in its truest sense, and as a journal we shall ever be found foremost in its cause-eschewing anarchy and confusion, as antagonistic elements, utterly subversive of its growth and progress. In a young colony, but one of vast and varied interests, such as Victoria, we shall have a task of no common care and responsibility and no eff...

Wood whe- ther it was true that the Russians had fired upon and destroyed a boat's crew of one of her Majesty's ships, which approached the coast of Hango to deliver up some Rus- sian prisoners. Sir C. Wood re- gretted that the report was only too true ; he had to-day received des- patches from Admiral Dundas, the       substance of which he would state, giving an account of the transac- tion. Some time ago her Majesty's, ship Cossack took and destroyed some Russian vessels near Hango, and three persons were made pri- soners—the captain of one of the vessels, his son, and a sailor.
