THE GOLD-FIELDS OF SEW SOUTH "WALES. Thc Sydney Empire of tile 16th inst., speaks in very samrmne terms of the gold-fields of that colony. " The tide of population," observes our contemporary, " which has so long receded, has begun to How again towards these shores ; and should the expectations warranted by present indications, be realised, the future of New South "Wales will supersede the hevday of Victoria. Strong and stalwart men, who for years have pursued the occupation of diggers in the sister colony, are arriving herc in large numbers by every vessel, and proceeding direct to Rocky Uiver and Stoney Creek. It is no merely specu lative rush. Before they left the over-populated fields on which they have acquired the expert- ! ence which euahles them, almost by a glance at surface, to pronounce on the auriferous quality of 1 thc ground, and the perseverance and wealth to enable them to contend with undiminished energy against thc difficulties and disappoint ments encountered in d...

July 20th. j nouga nmo may advance at various paces ia the experience of différent individual';, according to their varying circumstances ; still, in spite of the diction of the poet, there are none to whom it " stands still withal." In thc months that have been slipping away from under us, each epoch had its appointed task, in perfecting and completing the machinery by which we are to govern ourselves ; in preparing for the assembly of a purely elective parliament. The various preparatory rites have been each, and in due suc cession observed ; and with the beginning of nert month, now near at hand, the writs will be issued. In that ceremony there will bc some thing real and tangible, and it will no longer be possible to maintain an attitude of supineness. Xor is it now, if the privileges conferred upon us by the Xew Constitution arc to bc seized upon and prized as they deserve to be. That Consti tution, be it ever so faulty, has with...

Timothy Hayes was placed at the bar on a charge of the wilful murder of John Smith, in June 1855, at the Elephant and Castle Hotel. Mr Dunne appeared for the prisoner.

LINTON'S. (From our own Correspondent.) 21st July. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 24 July 1856

LINTON'S.     (From our own Correspondent.)   21st July.   Since my last communication I have ascertained   that the man who was reported to be killed on Brown's Bush is still living, though in a dangerous state. The mistake arose from the fact of his mates supposing him to be dead, and sending for the coroner to hold an inquest. Mining matters at the rush are not so cheering as could be wished ; still many are doing well. Springdallah looks very busy and the place is well spoken of. The claims upon the lead have now attained a depth of 105 feet, and I believe   the next claim bottomed will reach 120 feet.   Look out ye men of Ballarat, here is a new field opened for your enterprising spirit, possessing far greater attractions than most of you are aware of. The Black Lead is still receiving a great deal of attention, and most of the parties are settling down in comfortable quarters, and the ma...

TRADE REPORT. Ballarat, 23rd July, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 24 July 1856

TRADE REPORT.   Ballarat, 23rd July, 1856.   There has not been quite so brisk a demand for goods during the past week, still the aspect of things is very healthy. The more permanent lo-   cation of the population - consequent on the   adoption of the New Regulations-is having a very favorable effect on the trade of the place, it enables storekeepers to lay in larger stocks, as   they have no fear of their customers decamping at the report of every new rush which reaches them. The market has been stationary in most things since our last report. Flour is reported as having still further rise, as the quantity sent from Ade- laide and V. D. Land is very limited. SPIRITS.-Our last quotations remain unaltered, though there has been a downward tendency in the town markets. Ale and porter are still worth 20s. to 22s. GROCERIES.-A considerable quantity of sugar has been disposed of lately, but there appears no alteration in pr...

MELBOURNE WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. Argus Office, Saturday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 24 July 1856

MELBOURNE WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. Argus Office, Saturday Evening.     There have been fewer arrivals both of foreign and intercolonial vessels during the week just ended than for some time previously. The for- mer comprised only four vessels from the United Kingdom, one from New York, and one from Bordeaux. Two mails have been received from England, but the substance of the commercial news brought by them is uninteresting. There was a decided in- crease in the tonnage laid on in London and liver-   pool for the Australian colonies, but neither immi- grante nor goods were coming forward in like pro- | portion Several ships were taking in cargo at very low rates, to enable them to fill up and get away.   Whether this will have had the effect of en-   couraging shipments remains to be seen. The advices from this side, received in England just before the departure of the Lightning, were cal-   culated to lea...

THE STAR.   THURSDAY, 24th JULY, 1856   WORSE AND WORSE.   Who that suffered from it can ever forget   the fearful state of the Main-road last year, Those whom business compelled to undergo the horrors of that middle pas- sage, may well the varied   style of condemnation which was heaped upon the Central Road Board, in nearly every language under Heaven. On the Main-road a better state of things exists this year so far as it has gone, but other and adjoining thoroughfares under the management of the same body are likely, to be equally prolific of inverted bles- sings. It is perfectly useless to find fault, for as matters are at present ar- ranged, we but waste our time in de- claiming against Government negligence and Road Board folly. That the Road Board is doing wrongly we grant most unreservedly, but this sys- tem of wrong-headedness has become so fixed that we would rather be surprised than otherwise if the Road Bo...

DEATH OF PATRICK LALOR, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 24 July 1856

DEATH OF PATRICK LALOR, ESQ. Died, at Tinnakill, Queen's County, on the 10th April, in the 70th year of his age, Patrick Lalor Esq., J.P., and ex-M.P. Few men ga- thered around him through life more public con- fidence and private affection than Mr Lalor. Careless of mere personal advantages, but stern and uncompromising in asserting and maintaining the cause of his country, he commenced political   life by starting personally the passive resistance system of agitation against the tithe exactions of the Protestant church establishment : at a large sacrifice of property he offered himself a willing and unrequited martyr in the great cause of Catholic Ireland against the temporalities of a church that trampled on the country by it domi- nation, and robbed all classes of its inhabitants by its unexampled rapacity and misappropriation, to selfish uses, of an enormous amount of land and property, originally devoted to other purposes : a church known to the country only by it...

(To the Editor of the Star.) Sm,-Ia resuming my letter of the 24th inst. I presume the case is fairly stated, when it is said that the point at issue between the rival systems of Education is, " What religious troths shall he taught." Assnniing that to be so, I think the nationalists may justly complain that their oppo nents in stating the case, present it as being Reli gious, versus Anti-religious Education,-as being ] education based upon, and drawing its moral ! teaching from the inspiration of the Gospel, and an education which ignores thc sacred Word, and rejects all influence which may be deduced from it. Now, Sir, I must protest against such a mode of stating the case, it avails nothing to say, that i Atheists, Deists, and every heterodox, sect...
