The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 28TH FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 28 February 1865
DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 28m FEBRUARY, 1S65. IN the Spectator of the 2Gth November last we find the following:-" Messrs Briggs and Sod, of Normanton, Yorkshire, have com menced a new movement which may act as an example. They are turning their firm into a company, and one of their first proposals is to divide the halt of all profit above ten per cent among their agents and workmen, the division to be effected b}T a pro rata bonus according to wages. They believe that under this scheme every man will work harder, and that strikes will be entirely prevented, an expectation we fear somewhat too sanguine. The idea is an excel lent one, but it might be carried out in a way much simpler, and much lairer to the work man." Bare of details as this statement is, it is sufficient to show that the hard-headed sensible business class in England is begin ning to see the latent force that there is in the priuciple of co-operation, and the exist ing necessity for some satisfactory adjust ment of the r...

Mr Hervey said that lie had received from his Excellency the Governor, along with a note, five circular despatches received by his Excellency from the Imperiul Government, upon the subject of the treatment of foreign ships of war.

The two despatches not already before the public were then read by the Clerk of the Parliament as follows, and ordered to be printed: " Downing street;, 28th Marcb, 1863.-Questions having arisen an to the mode ia which governors of colon...
The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 1ST MATCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 1 March 1865
DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 1ST MAItCH, 18CS. THE fear of the protectionists lest the Legis lative Council should listen to the prayer of the petition which has been so numerously signed by all classes in the community, and reject the protection tariff, is an encouraging sign of the times. Since the pro-taxation agitators are so dreadfully frightened lest their projeot should miscarry, there must purely be some cause for their fears, and if so there is a chance that common-sense and free trade will prevail after all. And there can be no question as to either the genuineness or the depth of the alarm which has taken pos session of the protectionist mind (if there be such a thing). At the pro-taxation meetings the great cry is-constitutionalism. For the Legislative Council to reject the protection tariff would be an illegal, a revolutionary act .-nay, according to one very florid and im passioned protectionist, an act of incen diarism. This is the main point upon which the lovers of taxes...
