BLACK LEAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 November 1856

BLACK LEAD. ! It is well known that for some time past con siderable dissatisfaction has been manifested by the miners on this lead, in consequence of the careless and inefficient manner in which it was rumored the books and accounts connected with the business of the lead were being kept, and the extravagant and unconstitutional manner in which it was reported their funds in the hands of the committee and treasurer had been ex pended. This feeling of dissatisfaction was rather aggravated by the fact that the com mittee, from the date of its appointment six months ago till the present time, had showed no disposition to afford any information on the subject.   On Monday last; the 27th inst, the com mittee, in order to dissipate the feeling thus entertained, called a public meeting of the   miners at which they presented their balance sheet and read the report of their proteedings. So dissatisfied however were the majority of the meeting that they declined to...

BALLARAT AND GEELONG RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 November 1856

BALLARAT AND GEELONG RAILWAY. YESTERDAY at the Chamber of Com- merce we had the pleasure of inspect- ing drawings and sections of five dif- ferent lines of railway from Geelong to Ballarat, as surveyed by Government with a key-map, showing at a glance the respective routes of the five lines. One of these lines is precisely the same--leaving out the separate ter- minus-- as that submitted to the public meeting in the Town Hall. This line is marked No. 4 on the Go- vernment map. It leaves Geelong by the western gully, crosses the Barwon twice, the high bank on the Geelong side being tunnelled 430 yards. The tunnel and the two bridges over the Barwon form the only engineering dif- ficulties of this line ; which is the most direct, and at the same time, the most southerly of the whole. The next in order is marked No. 5 on the map. It also leaves Geelong by the Western Gully but avoids the Barwon, crossing the Moorabool between Levien's and Fyans' Ford. The valley of the Moorabool is her...

THE AUSTRIANS IN HUNGARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 8 November 1856

I THE ATJ3TEIAXS'IK" HU3TGABY. ! An English traveller in Hungary has forwarded to the Times an ? inte resting letter on the present condition of that country and its treatment by the Austrians. The writer begins by j stating that on the 28th July an agent ; of Kossuth, who had been some months i in prison, was hanged at Pesth, and that, according to his informant, the man richly deserved his fate. On the. other hand, the conduct of the Em peror and of his Minister Bach, to wards unhappy Hungary is as bad as that of King Ferdinand towards Na ples. Hungary is treated as a con« quered country, pillaged and insulted. Soldiers are sent into the villages, and are quartered on all the inhabitants, except on thc nobles who are in the employment of the Emperor. They insult the people, they break all furniture, and throw out of the window anything they do not iliin good enough for diem. If t e weather is cold they break up the floors and sides of the room* fur fuel, and take the thatch off th...

Mr Fasserfs glorious feats, the unparalleled courage he displayed when in the midst of a tremendous cloud of smoke that issued from one of the chimnies of the University of Heidel berg, by saving, at the risk of his own precious life, that of a much lamented college mate of his, Mr Boots. This, Mr Editor, and more over his own fierce appearance and world-known bravery, induced me to sign myself as I did.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 8 November 1856

MISCEtLAXEOTJS. j The Boyal Charter arrived in liver- 1 pool last Tuesday, but her voyage j home was not so s.vc33ssful as the run ; out, which is to be attributed to the head winds in the early part of thc run. She did not pass the Cape until the thirty-third day out, and the voy age took in all 78 days. EXIQBATXOSF.-Owing to the diffi culty of obtaining a sufficient number of emigrants at thc present time, aris ing principally from the demand for labor on the approach of harvest, thc Emigration Commissioners have de spatched one of their officers upon a special tour through Wales, for the purpose of selecting emigrants from that district. A short time since a large body of woolcombers from Brad ford, in Yorkshire, assembled at the Emigrant Depot, Nine Elms, previous to joining the ship Winifred at South ampton, for Sydney. The depressed state of a considerable number of families in the district of Bradford, where the rates of wages are not more than nine shillings per week, induce...

COLONIAL BANK OF AUSTRALASIA [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 8 November 1856

COLONIAL BANK OF AUSTRALASIA 9n Thursday 'evening, a meeting of the shareholders in the Ballarat branch of this bank took jflaee at the Chamber of Commerce, S. Irwin, Esq., in the chair. The Chairman said, that as so many rumours had been afloat with respect-to this bank, he had, with the advice of several shareholders, called the meeting. It would he for those present to say whether they approved of the manner in which the matters of the bank -had lately been managed in Melbourne. He considered that, if the rumours in circulation were conti nued with respect to the bank,-it would result in bankruptcy. If these rumours were true, it was as well that their troth should be proved ; or, if without foundation, that their incorrectness should be shown, and public confidence restored. It had been generally understood that the shares of the bank were -et a preminm, but it would appear, if be had been rightly informed, that an officer of the bank had been purchasing I chares at a discount. ...

MINING ON PRIVATE LANDS. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 8 November 1856

I MINING ON PJHVJCTJE LAKDS> ] I f To the Editor of the Star J | j SIB,-Notwithstanding 'the highest*' legal i opinion, in Victoria, I Tentare to address a few 1 observations through your paper to the miners ! who are so mach interested in this question, ' because I am ansons that whatever their rights may be, they may not be led away by their own expectations, or by bad advice (I mean not sound advice), to insist upon a right which, in my opinion, they do not possess. I am not aware that any lawyer has given an opinion to the effect that the miners have the right of mining upon private lands, and the highest legal opinion so often quoted has, I fear, been tortured into something it has not expressed. I am now writtng-upon what I consider the law to be, without any reference to the justness of such law. It is a maxim in. law that the owner of the land is owner of such land from the cen tre of the earth to the heavens, (a very extensive territory.) Against this general right are s...
