WHITS r JKSE. (From our oten Correspondent.) July 17th. Mining is brisker as the weather changes here as elsewhere, and especially so amongst the attractive claims, busily getting up the contents of the gutter. N- s. 2 and 3 are daily swelling the dimensions of their pad docks, and cause no Utile attraction to the visitors trom distant leads 4 and 5 have not found the gutter so extensive as lhü former, and in consequence they will be deficient oj similar results.

GEELONG TRADE REPORT. Saturday, July 19th. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 July 1856

.-;-:- ---- - GEELONG TRADE REPORT. \ ?Saturday, July 19th. Business bas been very doll, owing partir to the effects of thc long-continued nuns, which hare interfered greatly with the up-country trade, and partly to the unsettled state of the flour market. In both respects, however, there is no* a perceptible change ; the weather seems to wear a more settled aspect, and the determi nation of the 1 armers not to sell their wheat at less than 8s. 6<L per bushel, coupled with the facts that the supplies from Adelaide have ncarlv ceased, and that comparative!}- little is forwarded from Van Diemen's Land, have rendered the flour i market firm at advanced rates.

God's world is worthy of our love, Were kindly deeds done to each other ; Were creeds and castes blown to thc winds, And man in man beheld a brother ; A world of beauty, bloom, and song, Would each exert his noble powers To plough the stubborn glebe of wrong, And plant again love's Eden-flowers. God's world is worthy of our love, i With all its sorrow, crime, and madness ; And heaven or hell dwells in thc heart, As man exists in grief or gladness. Man will bc better, better lov'd ; Ivo heart was ever lost bv kindness ; One word of mercy might have saved Souls that, like beacons, sunk in blindness. God's world is worthy of our love, If labor did its fruit inherit ; If blood ne'er ruled instead of brains, And wealth ne'er placed ifs heck on merit. That nobler name than king or lord The name of man-Oh! guard and cherish ; And freedom's sacred lands shall live, When guilty throne* and crowns shall perish. God's world is worthy of our love...

DEATH AND SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 24 July 1856

DEATH AND SLEEP. | It was towards evening, and thc brother angels I of Sleep and Death wandered together through thc earth. At length they reposed on a little hill, ' not far from the dwellings of man. Thc voice of the last evening bell from thc distant hamlet "was hushed, and a deep silence reigned around. Still and silently, as their manner is, the two angels sat together, their mild countenances full1 of love to one another, and to the human race : and soon night drew on. ~ j Then the Angel of Sleep arose from his mossy j couch, and began to strew thc invisible seeds of j dumber with a light hand. The gentle night breeze wafted them to the omet habitations of the tired peasants, and sweet sleep embraced the in habitants of all the cottages, from the aged man who moves not wimont bis staff to the infant in the cradle.-The sick forgot their sufferings, the afflicted their sorrows, the poor their cares. All eves are closed in sleep. " Having fulfilled bis task, the good angel return...

From week to week, and even from year to year, this is gradually becoming a more clearly ascertained fact.

The ground referred to lies a little off the road, nearly parallel to the dd Ade'phi Theatre.

It was difficult to over estimate the colonial value of that description of produce, whether for the purposes of naval con struction, ordinary bunding uses, or cabinet work. Most especially was the magnitude of the Blue Gum Tree {Eucalyptus globulut) a subject of universal wonder.

MONTEZUMA THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 24 July 1856

I MONTEZUMA THEATRE. The fine old English comedy of " School for Scandal," as brilliant as it is real, was played on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, to numerous, attend-, e, and delighted audiences. Although there can be no doubt that Lady Teazle ts one of the most shining of Miss Goddard's characters, and that the success of the play depended upon her alone, it is no less true that the effect was heightened and smoothed by Mr Caple's easy and lively acting in the character of Charles Surface, Mr Cox's accuracy and care in that of the senti mental Joseph, Mr Greville's eccentric humour and first-rate points in that of Crabtree, and Air Shearcroft's appreciated performance of Sir Ben jamin Backbite. Mr Webster's Sir Peter was greeted-as that character ever must be-with continued bursts of hearty laughter. Tho screen scene was an immense success throughout. Though sadly from the purpose of criticism, we cannot on this occasion help complimenting Miss Goddard on her taste and elegance ...
