THE EUREKA STOCKADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 December 1856

THE EUREKA STOCKADE. Yesterday was the second anniversary of the fatal encounter between the troops and the holders of the Stockade, and the memorable and melancholy event was commemorated by a pro- cession and the delivery of addresses. Two o'clock was the time appointed for the rendezvous on the site of the stockade, and by three there were assembled about 200 persons, amongst-whom we noticed Messrs Seekamp, Hambrook, Nicholls, O'Meara, Hayes, M'Gill, Lessman, Lynch, and others. At three o'clock, Mr Lynch mounted a stump on the ground, close to the Stockade, and read the following address to the multitude : - FELLOW CITIZENS,-Sensible of the debt of gratitude we owe to the memories of the brave men who fell victims on the fatal 3rd December, '54, in their efforts to resist the oppression and tyranny of the then-existing government, we meet here to-day, the second anniversary of that disastrous day, in solemn procession, to pay to their manes the only tribute in our power the celeb...

THE PENAL DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 December 1856

THE PENAL DEPARTMENT. A public meeting will be held this evening,' (Monday,) for the par-' pose of memorialising the Go vernment to institute an inquiry into the management,of the Penal De partment, and subserviently to that end, to respite Melville and his two convicted associates, until,atall events, their evidence on the matter had been taken. Although the Government have already intimated, through their. representative in the Upper House, their design to appoint a Special Com mission of enquiry on the' subject, it is both\right and necessary to have the proposed public meeting; for, besides that it is always best to let a strong public feeling find expression in that manner, the Government will be stimu lated to the speedier performance of their duty by knowing the intensity and universality of the interest which this matter has excited iu the public mind. We hope, therefore, that the I meeting this evening will be a decisive [ demons tration of that feeling. ' ' But in:^4^^^^«î...

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

THERE is still an omission in Mi Bainy's proposed bill, which we would like io see sup plied-a substantive measure for thc appoint« ment and pay of a etan*- of Thining surveyors. In section 13, (the sections are not numbered hy the bye) it is brue, it is provided" for the Governor to appoint officers, &c," but in omfinn in reference ia specifically made to the appointment of surveyors, and it doubtless was intended to refer to the staff of wardens.

GOLD IN LAND SLIPS. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 December 1856

GOLD IN LAND SLIPS. (To the Editor of the Star.)   SIR,-In my last geological communica- tion to you, you most politely said you would give me a hearing under any circumstances ; thank you for the undeserved compliment, and will not therefore apologise for troubling you with the following brief remarks. The learned lecturer of geology on Thurs- day evening last, in his highly interesting discourse on the subject, stated that " a min- ing friend of his has been unable to discover gold in the ground from whence masses of earth had been removed by rivers " (if I un- derstand him rightly.) I think I am enabled to point out a spot in which something very similar does occur on the Loddon. Between Fryer's Creek and that river there stands a magnificent Bald Hill being of a conical shape, rising precipitously from the river, and terminating in table land, like many others for which the Loddon district is noted. This one is known as ''The Bald Hill" par excellence and many hundr...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. FRYER'S CREEK, INCLUDING KANGAROO, THE LODDON, AND TARADALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 December 1856

MINING INTELLIGENCE.   FRYER'S CREEK, INCLUDING KANGAROO, THE LODDEN, AND TARADALE.     The Nuggetty Gully rush still continues, and     several large nuggets hare been found since last, of 111 ounces, which we duly chronicled. Dur- ing the past week, one of 24 ozs.-, oue of 20 ozs. and one of 18 ozs., have been discovered. As the summer advances, this district promises   exceedingly well, for the diggers will then be able to work in the bed of the creek, and large finds are anticipated. The new reef opened at Mopoke Gully gives very good prospects, and the Emu Beef has been vigorously worked,   with extraordinary success, as much as 50 ozs., to the ton has been crushed lately, and that not from puked stuff. ----- "M.

THE MURDER IN STEPHENSTREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 December 1856

THE MURDER IN STEPHEN- STREET. The inquest on the body of Sophia Lewis was held yesterday, at a little after ten o'clock, in a room in the Leinster Arms, Stephen-street. The jury, a most respectable and intelligent one, having proceeded to view the body, (the appearance of which need not be described a second time), returned to the hotel, and the following evidence was taken:—   Thomas Townsend, eating-house keeper, sworn: I have known the de-   ceased rather more than four months. She was known as Miss Lewis, or Annie Lewis. She lived alone, and her house was much frequented by Chinamen. I was at home during the night of Tuesday last. The last time I saw the deceased alive was about mid -day on Sunday last. She was then alone, and came to my house for din- ner. Her house appeared very quiet   during the remainder of the day, and I did not observe any person enter it. I have heard rows among Chinamen in her house, but not more than once or twic...

MELBOURNE. (From our own Correspondent.) 4th December, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 6 December 1856

MELBOURNE. (From otar wm Correspondent.) j " ¿; ita December, Ï856. "i be proceedings in . the Assembly on Wednesday were less interesting than they were expected to prove from the -absence of Mr Haines. This led to the postponement of the second reading of the Electoral Act Amendment Bill for a week. There is con siderable anxiety to hear the account of this measure, which its originator will give. In the Age and Herald the measure is ob jected to as a delusion and a mockery. The first three clauses are represented as ex tending the franchise to the full extent of manhood suffrage, while' the rest of the bill renders these clauses inoperative and useless. The only point on which the ob jectors to the bill condemn is the require ment that the claimant of tbs right to vote should write to the clerk of Parliament, stating his claim, it being represented as far too great a trouble and inconvenient lo do this. Unless some of the newspapers pub lish au abstract of the bill in the meantim...

THE STAB SATUEDAY, 6TH DECEMBER, 1866. LICENSING AND THE BOUN DARY QUESTION. IK Mr Treasurer Sladen's budget lae Government proposes to reduce the fees paid by auctioneers, spirit merchants, and licensed victuallers. However much several of the other portions of the financial scheme of the present Government may be disap proved of, we think that on this point there will be a general unanimity of opinion. We confess that the licensing sys *tem," whether applied to one or all of the classes above named has long been a puzzle to us-the fees being too high, the policy of raising a revenue in this manner more than questionable, -and the working of the whole system extremely unsatisfactory. On the gold-fields especially, -the licensing j system, as applied to licensed victual- ! lers, has been attended -with great evils, and these too over and above these of the more settled communi ties, j It is unnecessary to enquire into the I wisdom or otherwise of the policy which j decreed that Ball...
