THE ELECTORAL FRANCHISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 December 1856

THE ELECTORAL FRANCHISE. During the election contests which returned the present Legislature, if one political principle could be said to have had prominence more than ano ther, it was undoubtedly that of Man hood Suffrage. Now, after all the ventilation which that subject received during the multifarious discussions in which almost every candidate for a seat in either the Assembly or Council was obliged to take part, it does seem strange that the ministry should attempt, by an anomalous ad denda, to render nugatory the very objects they professedly seek to confer. After the very de termined front which the chiefs of the administration made against the prin ciple, it was hardly to be expected, however, that they would, s ; suddenly, commit themselves, purely and simply to a recognition of it, and the great mat ter of surprise has been, that they have so tar waived their professed con victions as to yield, thus much in deference to the wishes of the people. However laudable may be th...

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 December 1856

~ joining. ¡ THE finding of a third rock on Frenchman's is a feet of no little importance in connection with the interests of oar nuning community. The expenses already incident to the conduct of ir»"i"g operations on those double rock lines, as abundantly shown in the recently published table of the outlay and return, de monstrate that nuder the existing system the addition of any considerable amount of ex penditure in obtaining tile precious metal would prove fatal to the miner. If ow, there fore, more than ever, becomes it necessary to agitate for the immediate introduction of larger areas, and improved methods of working those areas. Combination amongst the miners, and the more liberal use of steam power, with the" adoption of Bray's or Cow an's, or some other plan of working, must be considered as indispensable to the future well being of the gold field generally, and to the deep sinking portion of it in particular. The time, too, is come for greater attention to be paid to the...

This Report traces the progress of railway enter prise in Victoria, from tho period -when active measures were first initiated, up to the present time ; indicates the pro bable cost of carrying out a comprehen sive scheme of railway communication, ai well as what are conceived to be the most practicable routes ; and concludes with the expression of an earnest de sire-in which we are sure the public will cordially participate - that the trunk lines, which are most impera tively required, should be immediately commenced and vigorously prosecuted to completion. We are glad to find the whole of the Report is based upon the assump tion that, of the two main lines which are regarded as indis...
