The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 21ST FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 21 February 1865

DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 21ST FEBRUARY, 18C5. NEARLY twelve hundred natnes have already been attached to the Ballarat free trade petition, and when it is sent to Melbourne for presentation on Wednesday it will probably Lave fifteen or sixteen hundred signatures. This is pretty fair for Bfdlarat, which a few weeks since was so madly protectionist. And the signatures are not those of traders and miners alone. Many mechanics have also at tached their names, which shows that juster views on the subject of protection are begin ning to obtain even among; those who during the election struggle were the prin cipal victim:; of the delusion. And the good reception which the free trade petition has met with in Ballarat is the more gratifying that it is undoubtedly genuine. The gentle men who have had it in charge to procure signatures, gave particular instructions to their paid agents to accept none but bona fide names, and to abstain from persuading or urging any one to sign, but simply place th...

UNLOCK THE MINES.—REPLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 21 February 1865

UNLOCK THE MINES.-REPLY. SIR,-Please allow me space to eay a few words in answer to a "Working Miner" in favor of "unlock ing the mines," and who advocates the subject like a true socialist who, alter having " knocked down" b)3 own money perhaps ao fast as he got it, proposes to divide again with the capitalist, or those who have taken care of what they had, or made more of it. " Working Miner " is entirely wrong in supposing the number of shareholders in the Band of Hope Company to he only 80 or 100. There are more like 4G0 or 500 shareholders. Again, " Working Miner" shows but little sense, and none that is likely ever to gain him a position above what he has Bigned himself, when be Btates that a dozen shafts Bhould be at work where but two are now working (mean ing on the Bund ol Hope's claim). Now, will any sane man, however he may be in favor of giving employ ment to the working miner, advocate the putting down of a dozen shafts on a mile and a half of lead, at an expense of so...

LIGNITE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 21 February 1865

LIGNITE. Sib,-As tbe lignite ia ogam upon the marten should feel obliged if you would permit me space in your valuable journal to make a lew observations in connection therewith. Lignite is a thing in England of which little is known, consequently when lignite is mentioned persons are apt to exclaim-lignite, why what is that? To such inquiry I may state for the information of those who have not the necessary time or inclination to go into the matter geologically, that nature has by some process or other at different periods stored ia tbe bowels of the earth immense quantities of vegetable matter, which has by time, pressure, and other causes (which it is not now ne cessary to enter into), been converted into different kinds of coal. Tbe older the system in which the coal is found the more dense the coa). Now the lignites or brown coals are less dense than those of the carboniferous or the oolitic period, be longing as they do to the tertiaries, but when found in large masses, as in ...
