COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. BALLAHAT TJiADE REPORT. Star Office, Saturday cveninrr Business has been of moderato extent with scarcely so much activity as was observable in tho previous week. Tho nows brought by tho mail has had but littlo eireet on prices, tho principal chango being in tho valuo of candles which aro dearer. Collections have been fair, but not quito so freely made. In tho (lour market there is continued firmness, owing to tho farmers showing an unwillingness to part with their wheat in expectation of higher prices, but this would seem to be a matter of soino doubt and deponding very much on the foreign supplies sent to our market. At any rato our own growers are fully alivo to tho faet that their produce is very much preferred by consumers, probably from its not passing through so many hands, and, therefore, not liable to such a degree of adultera tion.

NEWS AND NOTES. Recently we mentioned that we could not publish letters commenting upon what had appeared in other local newspapers, but many cf our correspondents appear not to have seen, for they certainly disre gard the intimation. "Virginian,', " One of the People," " D. Henderson," several "Free Traders," and " Justice to All,'' will please take notice that the only objection to the publication of their letters in our columns was that they had trans gressed the rule laid down by us. All communica tions commenting upon what had appeared in our own columns, or discussing questions of local or general importance without reference to any Writ ings 011 such subjects in other local newspapers, will find admission as promptly as the rather exigent demand upon our space will admit, but we must abide by the rule we have laid down.

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 20TH FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 20 February 1865

DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 20th FEBRUARY, 1865. THE battles of the tariff and the land bill have obscured in their noise and dust and smoke the long-talked-of " Sullivan's Pam phlet." It may be, however, that the Minister of Mines has been busy in the meantime with his promised new version of the prodigious statute on mining; matters, which lay so heavily on the minds and shelves of editors j and members of Parliament last year. That I he has been doing something is well known, inasmuch as some information thereupon has been given by Mr Sullivan to Parliament, but it is very desirable that the " talking shop " should not waste too much time in discussing the really important measures before it, and thus keep the mining interest without the legislative reforms required for the proper conduct of practical mining, and for the obtention of reliable titles to mining property. The removal of impolitic impediments to min ing on private property is desirable, and the repeal of all objectionable c...

THE FREE TRADE PETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 20 February 1865

THE FREE TRADE PETITION. SIR,-Un Friday afternoon I met a gentleman of the Protectionist party, who in an excited manner told me be had seen the man in charge of the free trade petition Bigniog names to it as fast as he could think of them; adding that lie should expose the matter. As indignant as himself at such con duct (for on the authenticity of the names attached thereto the weight of the petition depends), I begged him to return with me, examine the signatures, and substantiate his assertion by allowing or telling me the forged names. This he refused to do, and par tially retracted his former statement by saying tlmt he had certainly seen one name signed. I now determined to sift the matter to the bot tom. I examined the petition, told the man in care of it of the charge made against him, and was shown the signature my protectionist friend had witnessed. It consists of the man's initials, written where they will be hidden by the overlap of of the papers when pasted together, a...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE OREGON QUARTZ MINING COMPANY, MELBOURNE ROAD. SIR,-In your report ot the meeting of the Borough Council of Ballarat Bust, we notice the report of the Town Inspector called attention to the fact that a portion of Dyte'o Parade was being mined upon, and asking lor instructions. Councillor Steinleld said that it was a very serious matter, and companies having in view merely the issue of scrip-so much waste-paper-should not be allowed to endanger public streets and property. The Inspector, in answer to the Mayor, said that the name of the company referred to was the Oregon Qaattz Mining Company, and that it was driving towards the Mel bourne road. After some discussion the Town In spector was instructed to take proceedings in the usual manner to compel the company to stay opera tions forthwith. We regret that Mr Steinfeld should make use of such remarks, reflecting as they do indirectly on ourselves. We act as brokers to the Oregon Company, conscientiously bel...
