The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 17TH FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 17 February 1865
DAILY ISSUE. FIUDAY, 17tii FEBRUARY, 1SG THERE is a vico as well as a virtue of con stancy. This is one of the vices of the bloodthirsty banditti of New South Wales, for which we have to thank the vico of cowardice or connivance which seems to have emasculated alike the Government and the people of that disgraced colony. The feuds ot rival politicians in Victoria, as the battle of free trade and protection is fought in Parliament, debating club, or public meeting, may mildly excite the public mind with expectation of fresh absurdities and repeated ebullitions of well-kept hate, when opportu nity serves either debater or journalist as he rides his hobby or spits out his bilious venom. To call bad names and accredit with the meanest or the foulest ot motives, is an amiable exercise of decorous and civilised manners, and will please some readers or hearers; but what, are all these dull things to the spirit-stirring conditions of social life in New South Wales? And yet, after all, the d...

Oq tho order of the day for the resumption of the debate on the motion for the suspension of tho stand ing orders in order to obtain leave to introduce this bill, Mr Higinbothain suggested, as the better course to be adopted, that the bill should be referred to a select committee.
