MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 1 March 1865
MINING INTELLIGENCE. There has been a fair average business doing in the share market, though not quite equal on Tues day to the average of the past week. There were several sales of Franklin early in the day, but after the revelations made at a special meeting for the appointment of directors, held in the afternoon, all transactions ceased, and it is intended to take mea sures to set aside some agreements lately entered into. The enquiry for Daylesford stock is on the increase; holders of fierip in the most advanced of the progressive mines there are raising their de mands, and the brokers find some difficulty in meeting the wants of buyers. The number of new schemes daily launched on the market is greater than at any former time since the incroduction of the limited liability, yet the freedom with which shares are taken up argues either unbounded confi dence and unrestricted resources, or else tho exist ence of an extraordinary amount of speculation. This will be proved in time, w...

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 2ND MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 March 1865
DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 2ND MARCH, 1865. IN the latter part of 1858, tho population of Victoria bad risen to half-a-million, and we see by tbe return issued at the close of 1864 by ibe Registrar-General, that we have added more than another hundred thousand to our number. The total population was on the last day of tbe year estimated at 604,858, a result arrived at by making the census of 1861 a basis, and adding thereto the excess of births upon deaths, and of immigrants upon emigrants. The result is near enough for all general purposes of comparison, and ic shows that during the past year there was an increase upon the previous twelve months of 30,527 persons, of whom 10,150 were natives, and 14,377 intro duced. Referring to Mr Archer's Statis tical Summary of Victoria, we find that in the year 1863 tbe increase upon 1862 was only 18,587 ; 18G2 showed an increase of 13,944 upon 1SG1; 186 L an increase of 3953 upon 18tS0 ; 1860 an increase of 7585 upon 1859; 1859 an increase of 25,7...

GRAIN SHOW AT COGHILL'S CREEK. A grain show under the auspices of the Glenda ruel, Mount Beckwitb, and Clunes Agricultural So ciety, was held at the Coghill's Creek Hotel, on Wednesday, for the purpose of selecting oamples of wheat and oats to be afterwards forwarded by the Board of Agriculture, per the Great Britain to the Dublin Inter-National Exhibition. The samples of grain, though neither numerous nor very cleanly dressed, weighed well, and were of superior quality. The exhibits of wheat by Messrs Matthews and Coffey were BO nearly matched that the judges were occupied a long time in deciding r.s to whom the prize should bo awarded. The golden drop wheat exhibited by Mr Dyer was considered remarkably pure and of good color. The tartarian oats of Mr Turnbull were very floe, and the potato oats of Mr Matthews, though the only exhibit in that section, were, for their weight and quality, by the judges awarded a prize. From teets previously made at home by some of the competitor!, a...
