BURRAMBEET RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 6 December 1856

BURRAMBEET RACES. íesieroay mese races took, place, and a beam timi morning tended much to exhilarate the spirits of those wno had determined to have a day's enjoyment From an early hour in the morning horse men persons in varions vehicles, amongst whom the fair sex mustered strongly, were to foe seen wending, their way towards the race course. In addition to these some three or four public conveyances were chartered for the occasion, and were ali of them pretty well filled. Some two hours riding brought us to the race course, which is situated close to the Biirrambeet Hotel, and is nearly a perfect circle. The spectators have also the advan tage of seeing the whola of the race through out. There is, however, one drawback which this course has, namely-that a very short distance from the starting post the horses - have to cross some ploughed ground. On arriving upon the course we were par ticularly struck with two beautiful stallions belonging to a Hr M'Callum, a settler near Meant G...

MEMS FROM THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 6 December 1856

MEMS FROM THE MURRAY. THE RIVER NAVIGATION.—The Leichhardt is at Echuca, Hopwood's Ferry, having made the run up in sixteen days. She proves to be the fastest boat in this trade : but it was anticipated that the Start, unfortunately grounded in the month of the river, would prove a faster sailer. Sixty tons of tobacco had been landed at Hopwood's, and two hundred tons cf this article at Albury. The importa per the Murray steamers, tor this season, amount to £400,000in value, and we have a monto, or two yet to run. The enter prise is becoming a great fact, and to "essa ber,'" or " stop her," will yet prove a problem difficult to bc solved by Victorian politicians. TES EDWARD BXVBB.-Captain Cadell has finished his task of exploring this fins river, sud his opinion is favorable in regard to its naviga tion. The intrepid explorer has the power from the Company, whose agent he is, to pat on a vessel as soon as he thiaks proper. He says there are a great many snags m the river ; that a th...

OUR PAST AND PRESENT. (From the Miner.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 6 December 1856

OUR PAST AND PRESENT (From the Miner.) If the year 1851 be memorable in the annals of Victoria as that in which the rich deposits of gold were dis covered, that until then had remained locked up in the secret treasuries of nature amid the forest ranges and ra vines of the unpeopled interior, the two following years are scarcely less re markable by reason of the unprece dented results of that discovery. The excitement occasioned by the revela tions of the Californian el Dorado was considerable, in Britain, and in Europe generally; but it was far exceeded by the wild, intense, absorbing passion which sprang into rampant action as soon as the more wonderful intelligence   from Australia was made known in the several countries of the old world. In the course of a few months, those white-winged messengers of the deep that fly away over billow and rock, careering, with the winds which dash wave against wave, over   the bulwarks of the ship, or stir the depths of ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 6 December 1856

SANATORY WANTS.-The want of an In-   epector of nuisances on the east side of the   bridge is very plainly seen in several places. Water-closets overflowing, dead cats, and dogs, and horses, lying unburried and taint- ing the air around, are enough of themselves, independent of foul drains and dirty premi- ses, to call for immediate interference, now that the hot weather is come again. A viru- lent and fatal epidemic will be waited for, perhaps as a motive for the adoption of the measures necessary to secure the public health. POWDER MAGAZINE.,-- The erection of the powder magazine, on the bank on the eastern side of Soldiers' Gully, is progressing, and the walls on all sides are some five feet high. The material used is thc basaltic rock or blue stone, so well known to the miners on Ballarat, and the structure bids mir to be substantial enough. We cannot congratúlate the choosers of the rite on having made a happy selection, for it seems to us far too cent...
