PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. Wednesday, 22nd February, LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 February 1865

PARLIAMENTARY" INTELLIGENCE. Wednesday, 22nd February, LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. The President took the chair at twelve minutea past four o'clock. Mr Highett moved for copies of any instructions received from the Home Government relative to the reception and treatment of ships of war of foreign nations visiting this port, more especially in rela tion to those of belligerent powers. In doing so he said that a great deai of excitement had been created in the public mind by the correspondence that had passed between the Government and the commander of the Shenandoah, and that a very general impres sion prevailed that ouch correspondence ought to have come through the Governor in person. His own impression was, however, that the Governor could not have acted differently from what he had done. Mr Ilervey said that Ilia Excellency had received certain despatches upon the subject, but they were of a private and confidential nature, and therefore would not be laid upon the table. Mr Cole said th...

The Ballarat Star DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 23ND FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 February 1865

DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 23nv FEBRUARY, 18G5. IN the December number of the Cornhill Magazine, there is a contribution to the liter ature of penal administration. It is by a convict in or from Western Australia, and of course may be by one or otber of those educated scoundrels, Robson or Redpath. But who it is that writes is of less moment than that which is written, albeit it is of some interest to know, or to be able to guess at, the authorship of this or any other produc tion, as one means of estimating the probable reliableness, and therefore value, of the opinions expressed. The contributor in ques tion has very strong opinions upon convict discipline, and probably speaks feelingly, and if he has not generalised too rapidly, or too emotionally, his conclusions may be of some value to the penal reformer. Perhaps the literary convict of the Cornhill had not heard that Captain Craig, the Governor of Penton ville prifon, had absconded with some £2000 of public money, for he writes of...

The banks and the Murray merchants have me morialised the Government to use its influence with the British Government to procure the appointment of a consul for New Caledonia.

Under these circumstances the deputation requested that the same mii^lit be granted for the purposes stated.

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 February 1865

NEWS AND NOTES. The weather on Wednesday was very liofc and sultry, and the air towards night became charged with smoke from hush fires, which were burning in several directions round the town. One particularly large one was raging to the westward beyond Jack Bon's slaughter-yards. In epite of the dry weather, the decreasing water supply, and the caution published by the Water Commission, there are still owners of premises guilty of an unnecessary use of the fast-becoming precious fluid. Persons who should know better are still in the habit of using the hose for mere amusement, or for cooling yards and houses, or ior a lavish waste of water in cart and carriage washing. If the Com mission has not the power to stop this sort of thing it ought to have, and the water should be cut off from all premises where the occupiers are found to be guilty of thus disregarding the warnings so pub licly given. The Ballarat Agricultural Soeiefy is making active preparations lor receiving his Excelle...

Orr; Clerk of the course -Mr Redman. The first day's racing under the conduct of the Creswick Turf Club took place on Thursday, but owing most probably to the hot and sultry weather was not well attended. Not more than about 350 people were present, and though the ring was very well represented and many apparently tempting offers were made on each race, but few bets were recorded and very little money changed hands during the day. The Selling Hurdle Baca, which was the lirat race, was won by Currag'1" more.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, 23rd February. Wheat to-day sold at 83 5i per bushel; bran, Is 3.1. Oats and barley are very lirm and eearce. Shipments of kerosene are expected direct from America. At the Agricultural and Horticultural Show the prize sampie of wheat weighed GS lbs 13J- oz to the bushel. Notwithstanding all that may be said to tlie con trary (says our Melbourne correspondent) Ministers protess themselves satisfied as to their ability to carry their New Tariff Bill through the Legislative Council, despite the strenuous efforts made to in duce a contrary vote. The division list will in all probability be a close one, and the absence of a free trader or a protectionist will be of the utmost impor tance to the fate of the measure. Of this fact I have the personal assurance of more than one member in favor of " encouraging native industry" that they will be found in the ranks of the Minis terial opposition.
