The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 27TH FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 27 February 1865
DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 27rn FEBRUARY, 1805. At tlie last meeting of the late Mining Board the Four Towns Bill was brought under consideration, and objections were taken by some of the members of the Board to some of the clauses of the bill. It appeared that the object of the mover in the discussion of the bill was to assert the principle that borough authorities ought not to have power of control within their own borough boundaries in refer ence to ' the doings of miners. It was also laid down by the same authority that it is wrong to impose mun:cipal rates upon lands i or machinery held by mining companies. The grounds upon which it was sought to erect these principles were two :-that mining is an uncertain calling, and that it is the richest and paramount industry of the colony. These grounds, and the principles to be based thereon, may not appear to some minds to be logically connected, but it was stoutly asserted in the Mining Board that such a connection was existing, and was abs...
A JUDGE ASSAULED BY A POLICE MAGISTRATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 27 February 1865
JUDGE ASSAULED BY A POLICE MAGISTRATE. Some particulars of a fracas between Judge Cope and Mr Barnard, Police Magistrate at Beeehworth, have already appeared in our columns, but as Mr Oope is known here, and the affair is in itself a sin gular case, we subjoin a narration of it supplied by by the Judge to a Beeehworth paper. His Honor writes:-" I see in your issue of today, in your leading article about the assault by Mr Barnard upon me, you state " that in the heat of a discussion concerning it, some words were dropped which hurried him beyond the bounds of strict propriety." My object in writing is not to take exception to the article, otherwise I might say that such conduct is usually described as " a ruffianly and cowardly as sault." I have allowed so long a time to elapse without making any public explanation, because I did not wish utterly to ruin Mr Barnard ; and, had Mr Barnard mode an apology to me immediately after the assault, I should have been satisQed if the Government...

MELBOURNE WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REVIEW. Saturday evening. Export entries were prised at the customs to-day on 22 oz of gold for shipment as follows, viz.:-20 oz per Coorong, for Adelaide, and 2 oz per Gothenburg', for Uluff Harbor. Tho past week has been a very dull one in tho import market, and no movements of the slightest importance arc recorded. Tho great uncertainty which exists, as to tho ultimate fate of tho tariff, has tended, more than anything else, to bring about this result.
