The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 24TH FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 24 February 1865
DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 24TII FEBRUARY, 1865. IN the Legislative Council on Wednesday evening1 the " Land Act (1862) Amendment Bill'' was read a third time and passed, and we have thus reached an advanced stage on the legislative road to a destination which it very nearly concerns the colony to reach safely and rapidly. For some weeks past we have not troubled our readers much about the Land Bill. More immediately interest ing, and no less important topics, demanded our attention, and the Land Bill, in the Upper House (not rash in its movements, and notably inaccessible to newspaper persuasion) could therefore bide its time. But it has once more emerged into the light of day. Having undergone a tedious and laborious process of incubation in " another place," it is again before the Assembly that that body may adopt or reject the amendments intro duced by the Council, which amendments, we may remark, are neither numerous nor, as appears at a first glance, very important. There is one alt...

A CHESS CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 25 February 1865
A CHESS OLUB, SIR,-It is a remarkable (net that although we have on Bullarat clubs and societies of almost every description, we do nos posses?, and (so fur as I am aware) never have pos^sscM a chess club. Thero are probably four or five hundred che3s players in the town, nianyof whom would he delighted to have the opportunity of enjoying a quiet game; and thcro are doubtless many others who would gladly learn it, if facilities ollered for their doing so. With a view to tent public feeling on tho matter it is pro posed to hold a meetin;; to discuss the subject, of which notice is given in your advertising columns. Trusting soon to commence (at the club) as I now end, I am, sir, 24th February. KINGS PAWN TWO MOVES.
SUNDAY WORK IN THE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 25 February 1865
SUNDAY WORIC IN THE MINES. SIR,-I feci compelled to address you on the hard ship and injustice the working miners of Ballnrat have to undergo. Many have to work on the Satur day until midnight, and on the Sunday at midnight go to work again; white others have tn work on tho Sabbath, thus being deprived of their greatest pri vilege, "For the Sabbath was made for man," and no man has a right to deprive another of it. Amongst tho miners themselves there is a deep groaning for liberty, and often the complaint hna been made to particular companies, but of no avail. 1 now appeal to the ministers oS religion, who can see the evil effects of the pernicious system in their churches every Sabbath, and to all right thinking people of Balkrat, to assist us in our endeavors to obtain a release from work on Saturday and Sunday nights. And, S-,r, I ask your powerful nid, know ing you are c.xr the advocate of the cause of the oppressed. By inserting this you will greatly oblige your humble servant,...
THE COMMON SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 25 February 1865
THE COMMON SYSTEM. SIR,-The Honorable the Minister ot Lands would be perfectly justified in demanding the books and papers of the Landsborough, &c., Common. The Ararat Mining Board, by a resolution passed at a meeting on the 7th inst., has censured the managers und auditors, but the question arises-!owhomi3 iho blame due? Surely not the auditors, who no doubt know that a large area of the public estate i3 reserved to a few-ft very few- inJividuals, for nil, or nest to it. Mr Editor, I soy emphatically that the com monage question is becoming a great nuisance, and the sooner the Government slep in and make Btrict and searching enquiries into all of them the better. So far back as the 3rd September, 1861 (page 1C80 of the . Government Gazette), the Navarro Gold-fields Common was granted. Managers wero appointed accordingly, aud yet from that period to the present there has only been one return nude, aud that for the year ending 31st August, 1861. In point of fact, 8500 acres o...
ABOUT THE CORNER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 25 February 1865
ABOUT THE CORNER. SIR,-I am a speculator in mining shares. .1 am an habitue of the Corner. I haunt it by day and I dream of it by night. The daily riot there is to mo an irresistible attraction. I rush into it with all ray might. I revel in scrip3 and shares, stimulated by dazzling hopes of a premium. I conceive fresh schemes of aggrandisement with each succeeding moment, as that eager crowd is swayed or stirred by the breath of rumor. I ruu with the ruck, and throw in my halloo like a very Nimrod when the game is started. The genius of the Corner inspires me wherever I go, and even my hours of domestic privacy are filled with visions of stupendous rushes and colossal gains. A fair field, no favor, and take the hindmost! That is my Shibboleth, and I am fair and above board with it. I deceive no one. I fight, like Harry of tho Wynd, for my own lmrul, and I expect every man at the Corner to do likewise. I do not lay my account, howover, with encountering opposition, iu my own branch o...

DAILY ISSUE. SATURDAY, 25m FEBRUARY, I8G5. IF it were possible for protectionists to recog nise the truth when put plainly before them, some figures published in Friday's Argus would go far to cure them of the dementia with which it is their unhappy lot to be afflicted. We refer to certain tables fur nished by five of the principal importing houses of Melbourne, and submitted to the President and members of the Legislative Council along with a petition praying their honorable House to reject the new tariff, and which (the tables) show in the clearest and plainest manner what has been the effect of the new duties down till the present time. Full particulars are given of certain importa tions since the new system came into opera tion-the description of goods imported and the rate of duty, the invoice value, the number of cubic feet which the containing packages measured, the amount of duty, and the rate per cent, ad valorem which the duty came to-and as the tables are verified by the ...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A BRAVE ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 25 February 1865
, : I LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A BRA.YE ACT. Sin,-I have read your paragraph this morning, whioh states that Thomas Bear, an apprenticed blacksmith, nobly at the risk of his own life plunged into the water and rescued the boy Holman from drowning, and his conduct afterwards in using the means of restoring life without any thought of his own personal exposure is worthy of more than empty praise. I enclose my cheque for a guinea towards purchasing n present for him, and I hope that other parents will contribute as well, for they can imagine the feelings of Holman's parents by having their son handed back to them by the hando of such a youth as Thomas Bear. All honor to him, and may he live long, and when another boy is in danger of drowning may Thomas Bear be near to rescue 13 the prayer of yours, A FATHER. Ballarat, 24th February.

BubIi fires of rather formidable extent were raging throughout Thutaday in the vicinity of Beaufort, and as the wind waa blowing from the north, the flameB were bearing fast towurds Beaufort. When the wind changed in the evening the fire waB within half a mile of the town. There being such a scarcity of water, owing to the long drought nothing could have prevented the fire from doing a great deal of damage had its progress not been arrested as described. We report elsewhere the proceedings of a meeting held in the hall of the Mechanics' Institute in favor of the Ministerial tariff. The hall was filled, and a petition to the Legislative Council in support of the tariff was adopted by an overwhelming majority, the chairman declaring it to be adopted " almost un animously." An amendment was proposed but the speakers to it could not get a fair hearing. The meeting called last evening at the Mechanics' Institute for the purpose of forwarding a Chess Club was adjourned til...
