The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 6TH JANUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 6 January 1865

Ut* faltet MM. _BAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 6TH JANUARY. 1865. IT is one of tbe discoveries of modem politi cal science that there is more danger io little. To let men enjoy a large measure of freedom-freedom of action, of speech, and of thought-is to develop in them a sense of responsibility, and bring ont what lia noble and self-reliant in their nature; whereas to hem them in on every side by petty and harassing restrictions most dwarf the characters of the milder sort, and make them slaves br hypocrites, and drive the stronger willed into open revolt. The restraints of worldly prudence or conscience, or the whole*", some check of public opinion, suffice to keep most men from straying very far from the straight path, and are more effectual in pre-, venting wrong-doing than all the laws thai ever were enacted. Bat it ie only the wis- > dom of modern times that folly realises this. Time was-the good old time, in fact--when men were not permitted to think or act for themselves, ont had t...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 6 January 1865

NEWS AND NOTES. An accident occurred to the late train from Mel bourne last night. By some means unexplained a truck got off the line at the Buninyong station, and the engine had to be brought on with only the Geelong portion of the train, which, we presume, was in ad vance of the erring truck, and which was sufficient to accommodate the passengers by the train. This instalment of the train arrived before midnight, and an engine was then despatched to bring up the miss ing portion, which it managed to do by half-past one this morning. The Presbytery of Ballarat met in St. Andrew's Church, Ballarat, on Wednesday, 4th January, and was constituted in the usual manner. There were present the Rev. Duncan Fraser, moderator; and Messrs Adam, Crawford, Dixon, Gow, Hamilton, Hastie, Henderson, Benton, Smyth, Steel, Wallace, and Whan, ministers; and Mr Sim, elder. The minutes of the former meeting were read and con firmed. The .Rev. James Treadwell being present, was associated with the Presb...
