ON SOME SINGULAR NERVOUS AFFECTIONS DUE TO A SLOW POISONING BY NICOTINE, INHALED BY SMOKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 November 1856

ON SOME SINGULAR NERVOHS-" AF FECTIONS Ï)UE TO ;A SLOW POIS ONINGJBT> NICOTINE. INHALED . Siebert.describes, in his "Memoir, .« On- the Diagnosis of Diseases ¿f the Abdomen," a work which has jost is-' sued from the press,' the pernicious, effects of the use. of the cigar. ..These effects depend on a slow poisoning by nicotine, and constitute serious affec tions of long duration, the' causer and origin of which usually escape the I notice* of the practitioner, and deter ' mine the failure of the various modes of treatment employed. Berzelius had already shown that cigars con tained more nicotine than ordinary cut : tobacco. In consequence of the mode of preparation which tobacco cut up for the pipe undergoes, the nicotine in it is already reduced to its minimum of activity. But this is not the case with 1 the leaves destined to be converted into cigars ; the latter, in fact, are not subjected to the same preliminary preparation. Accordingly, it is chiefly in consequence of the us...

THE STAR TUESDAY, 4TH NOVEMBER, 1856. WHAT WE PAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 November 1856

1 THE STAR TUESDAY, 4TH NOVEMBER, 1856. WHAT WE PAY. ODE readers bave been putin possession of the " how and the wherefore"- of the imposition of the Gold Export Duty, and the abolition ot the Gold Escort fees. It was deemed necessary, and politic to- tax labor and to untax capi tal. The necessities of the State de manded that every ounce of gold raised should pay two shillings and sixpence duty, and. simultaneously-by some in fluence or other unexplained-Gold Escort fees were virtually abolished, and the cost of the Escort merged into Police Expenditure. The result of this Macheavellian dodge, was to inflict a heavy direct tax on the miner on the one hand, and at the same time to throw the cost of the gold escort service on the general revenue. It was a cun ningly devised plan adroitly executed, combining in one stroke of policy in justice to the most important interest in the eolony, with a gross mal-appro priation of public money to benefit a ! small, i spacious set of money trad...

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 November 1856

i*t tutus. Mn WINTER'S SCHEME.-We have been told, by those who profess to know, that -we were either misinformed, or that we misappre hended the information given ns respecting the terms proposed by Mr Winter for mining on his pre-emptive land. If our intelligence be now correct, this gentleman, so far from adher ing to his former contemptuous treatment of the miners, has actually proposed a plan of mining où hts ground which is ultra liberal in character. And if -a tremendous competition does not set in amongst the whole mining com munity for the glorious chance thus offered them of going to work with another man's capital, upon land known to auriferous; we shan be, indeed, altogether out of. dur reckoning. The offer made By Mr winter is represented by these rumours as sigularly generous-so gene rous that it exceeds all the attractions hitherto existing, under the most inviting circum stances upon crown land. We are in formed that Mr Winter engages to find machinery, stores, gear-e...
