LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 1 November 1856

LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. WE axe happy to be able to brine; before our readers an example of practical attention to the evils which result from that absence of provision for homeless females, which we have of late, on several occasions, descanted upon in our columns. It is a matter which, while it concerns us all, aüects our lady friends particularly ; and to them we most earnestly com mand the subjoined letter for their serious consideration. Every argn mern which could have moved the be nevolent ladies of Tasmania to the step they have taken, as shown in the letter below, might be used in Ballarat with ten-ibld force. The two principal towns in that island do not together contain a population larger than is assembled on this gold field ; while that population is settled and regular when compared with the here-to-day and gone-to morrow condition of the major part of our community. By how much greater, then, is the exposure to change and its concomitant evils with us than with the steady ...

THE FOSSICKERS. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 November 1856

I THE FOSSICKERS. . | I {Tc ike Editor cf thc Star.) j " 3rd,-The most numerous class on "Ballarat, who are daily struggling hard ; to gain a livelihood, ¿nd whose exis tence is almost i^Dored, is the Possifehers. My object iu writing this letter is to show how the interest of the miners on the deep leads is protected compared to that of the fossickers. There are thousands on Ballarat who prefer the shallow sinking to the deep ; and no doubt, could an accurate return be made of the gold produced weekly by the shallow sinkers, it would goa great ! way to prove that the storekeepers on the Main fioad owe their existence to them. As , soon ' as parties on the deep leads divide they invariably, set off for Melbourne or Geelong, where down noes their money. Not so. with: the fossickers; their daily earnings are spent in the neighborhood, and accord ing to the success attending their labor trade-is increased or diminished thëte hy.

MAIN-ROAD FRONTAGES. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 November 1856

MAIN-ROAD FRONTAGES. I (To the Editor of the Star J \ SEO,-The following facts may be interesting to your readers : At a meeting of storekeepers, con vened to consider the Main-road frontage question, on, Tuesday, the 24th March, 1356, it was resolved : " That steps be taken to postpone the sale of tiie frontages till tito meeting of the New Parliament." At a meeting-held on Friday, 31st October, 1855» it was resolved :-. .* That a memorial lie sent to Govern nent praying the postponement of the -sale till' the meeting of the New Legislature." . Thus, after seven months', consider ition, a public meeting at Ballarat ar àves at the same conclusion respecting «hese frontages <as -was. done in tfarch last.

INDUSTRIAL INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 November 1856

INDUSTRIAL INSTITUTE. TUE advantages of an industrial expo sition to Ballarat were so fully shown at the meeting which was held last week at the Star Hotel, that little more could be added than a hearty wish that the bantling then born may attain maturity and turn ont a credit to its many parent«. One circumstance,, however, connected wi i the London Exposition, which was not noticed by any of the speakers called upon to address the meeting, was the remarkable results of that Exposition. Among those which came under the notice of those who were present was the striking improvements in the quality of 6ime of our manufactures, and especially in the marked progress which almost immediately resulted in some of the machinery used for mi ni tig purposes. This class of machinery was ex - ceedingly well represented ; innume rable models of mines, with working ¡ models of mining machinery were ex hibited. 1 he ore dressing and wash ing machinery was exceedingly good ; samples of the ores in ...

MINER'S RIGHT LEAD. [ (To the Editor of the Star.) j oís-ia your issue ot tue asta j inst., I perceive a letter signed " A ¡ Victim," complaining of corruption j riding rampant on this lead. ¡ Now, Mr. Editor, I do not know to j whom your correspondent alludes, i whether it is to the surveyor or to the ! committee ; if it is to the former, I have nothing to do with it; but, if it : is to the latter, I at once assert that ; not one of the charges contained in i that letter is true. He says that he j was informed by one of the committee that there were some of the claims 'filled up with eight men, but always room left for one or'two to be filled up by parties who can drop a pound or two, &c. It is very easy to make assertions, and to cast insinuations ; but to prove them is a different thing.
