THE MORALITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 21 February 1865
TOE MORALITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES. SIR,-When you put forth an article which your readers consider incorrcct and unjust, you will per haps allow a lice Irom one who differs from you. In your leading article of this rooming's (Friday's) issue, you are too severe upon the poloniB's of New South Wales. They are principally English, Irish, and Scotch families who are settled there. The governor, and the upper and lower bouses are not at all inferior to parties holding the like positions in Melbourne. Has any colony in New Holland ever been so disgraced as this, by it's proceedings against the Shenandoah. Now, Mr Editor, all newspaper readers know well that Melbourne has for sometime coveted Riverica, and would be very glad to get a body of police there to get possesion. Ehl-nine points of the law, eh! I aia, Sir, A BIUTJBIIEE, 17th February.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. BROKERS' MORALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 21 February 1865
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. BROKERS' MORALITY. SIR,-In this morning's issue of the Star you say the manager of the Enfield Company " speaks ia strong terms of indignation at the conduct of a Bal larat broker, who having engaged to supply a parcel of the shares endeavored to procure them at a low price by false statements as to the character of the claim," and then you suggest a curative for such conduct, viz: " that the public should withdraw its business from parties acting so dishonestly." Now sir, although ic is generally known by those who are acquainted with the " inner life" of the corner who it is that is thus accused, the great majority of the public do rot know, particularly persons living at a distance from Bsllarat. I have therefore been requested by some of my fellow brokers to say that we think such a charge should not have been made in a manner that implicates the whole of the brokers of Ballarat, but that the name should have been given of the delinquent, and theu the publ...

AMERICA. 7th February, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 21 February 1865
AMERICA. ? (From a Correspondent,) 7th February, 1865. When I went down to tlie steamer Commercial in the evening of the 23rd December, 1 found all the gangways guarded by sentries with fixed bayonets. I was not allowed to go on board until I presented my pass, and my Canadian friend, who had kitidly come to see me off, was sternly refused permission to enter with me. Our progress up the river was necessarily less rapid than when coming down with the current. Little of any moment took place: the scenery was of the usual monotonous character-of heavily timbered banks, all of an unvarying equal height above the level of the hugs muddy stream that flowed between. Now and then \vs met a steamer coming down, and at the usual intervals we made for the bank to take in wood at some of the various wooding stations. The weather was excel lent, being fine, clear, and warm. In the evening of the 24tli, twaor three hours after dusk, we reached Island No. 10, famous as being the scene of one of t...

MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 22 February 1865
MINING. Since our last summary there has been nothing heard of, hardly, but the continued success of our old and well-proved mines, and the increased enterprise existing in nearly every part of the district. The gold produce of the district maintains its magnifi cent aggregate of superiority over all the other dis tricts^ in the colony; and the large number of pro gressive companies just breaking into gold, or of new ventures just being launched in promising localities, give UB good reason to look for an indeti nite prolongation of our mining prosperity. At the Corner, as our share exchange is called, the busi ness of sharedealing has become a settled call ing, and is growing in interest and importance. For, not only the large crowd of old mines, but an ever-increasing host of new speculations of all sorss are being put into the market, and the proved value of our tried mining grounds has drawn hither capi tal from all parts of the colony. At the same time new projects go off with g...
SUMMARY FOR EUROPE. POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 22 February 1865
SUMMARY FOE, EUROPE. POLITICAL. DURING the past month, as in the two preced ing months, the all but absorbing political sub ject has been free trade versus protection. At tho date of our last summary of intelligence for transmission to Europe, a protection tariff had just been submitted to Parliament, but at that date the public had scarcely had time to fully understand it, or to see how extremely damaging to the interests of the country such a tariff would certainly prove if adopted. A strenuous opposition had already been com menced, however, by the merchants and im porters of Melbourne, which subsequently spread to the other towns of the colony, by degrees drawing within its influence many other classes in the community, and now we are gratified at being able to report that there is in existence a free trade organisation capable of encountering even such a danger as that with which the country is menaced by its present weak and time-serving rulers. The country may or may not ente...
