The Court-house, which has been carpeted, and is other ways made to approximate nearer !in its appointments to the Supreme Court was opened on Friday for the business of the first sitting in Ballarat of the Circuit Court; Mr justice Wilhams pre4ding.

MAIN ROAD FRONTAGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 13 December 1856

MAIN ROAD FRONTAGES. The sale on Thursday wa» well attended I and considerable interest'was excited as   various lots were disposed of. One lot was     purchased by a Chinaman, who coolly   mounted the auctioneer's box and signed his name, as though landjobbing had been quite familiar to him. Yesterday's sale was not quite so well attended, and the cases in which occupiers were bought out seemed to excite much less, attention than on the pre vious days. In the sale for Monday next, we observe the allotment on which the Na tional School, Red Hill, is placed. This should be withdrawn, and the Government should be requested to convey it to the pa trons of the school. Thursday, llth December. Lot 1. Allot 20 of block IL; sir perches. Paul ft Eíshére.

ALBURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 13 December 1856

ALBURY.   OUR PROSPFCTS.--- We have long been, in the habit of noticing the con- duct of the Chinese population on the Victorian gold-fields, and we have de- voted some time to, the observance of the modes of mining in vogue amongst them. We found the Celestials on their first introduction to the mines   contented themselves with re-washing   the tailings of the Europeans, and   poking about amongst the deserted   drives. As they became better initi- ated into the mysteries of gold-min- ing, we perceive that they looked   about for surfacing ground, and estab- lished themselves in secluded villages, I in the neighbourhood of slightly-pay- ing Creeks discovered by themselves. We next saw John Chinaman putting   down holes after thc approved " barba- rian' fashion, and pursuing his adopted calling in the same way as the more practised miners. We observed, however that those canvas villages, &...

PUBLIC HEALTH. FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 December 1856

PUBLIC HEALTH. " The necessity of a proportionate comming ling of vegetable with animal food for the pre servation of health, is a point urianimously admitted by-all writers on dietetics. For nearly three centuries the favorite and most used vegetable has been the potato. It is not, however, because the potato is the most nutritious of those articles usually under-, stood by the appellation of vegetables, but because of its easy and productive culture, its agreeableness to the palate, the various and expeditious means by which it can be cooked, and the length of time it can be pre served. ' The latter useful quality enables, us to lay by a store for consumption in thia winter months, when other vegetables may be scarce. The amount of gluten, or of those nitrogenous constituents which, after diges tion, build up muscle and add vigor to the frame, is but small in the potato, when com pared with many other vegetables, or with wheaten bread. The principal bulk of the dry ingredients of ...
