LIGHTNING.-Jfr. J. Longbottom, of Leeds, iias recently patented a method of combining atmospheric air with hydro-carbon, for the pur pose of producing light and heat. The inven tion consists of causing thc air, passed in contact with pumice stone, or other porous substance, saturated with sulphuric acid, in order to free (he air from water. The dry and pure air is then passed in contact with the hydro-carbon to he used. It is propelled through the process by bellows or blowing apparatus. The combined matters then pass into a gasometer. The air may be freed from carbone acid in a similar way. B To the Ladies of Ballarat.

The Government, the squatters and the people had each their champions ; and so far as reason, sound argument and équitable liberality went, the people de cidedly had the best of it. The lucid j analysis by Mr Michie of that quam charter of the squatters-"the Orders in Council," showed pretty conclusively the fallacy of their ehums, and in un mistakeable language, after reminding the legislature of the pledges they had given to their constituents, asserted that " we are not yet in the position to sell the inheritance of our children for a mess of pottage.' ' In the scheme itself or as averred by Captain Clark, "the part of the scheme" submitted there is scarcely any originality, aid none ia claimed.

BALLARAT RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 20 December 1856

BALLARAT RACES. Yesterday was the last day of the Ballarat races. The attendance was by no means so large as on the previous occasions, which most probably might be accounted for by the   fact of the hot wind and dust deterring many from venturing to the course. The general appearance of the course be tokened that the last day of the sports had arrived. No longer did Punch and Judy, with the wonderful dog Toby, delight a listening multitude; no more did the Ethiopian Sere- naders seek to enchant the public by their me- lodies, and the music which on previous day's had enlivened the refreshment booth was altogether silent. The steeple chase was advertised for half-past twelve o'clock, but did not take place until past two. The hurdles to be leaped over were 14 in number, and were 4 feet 6 inches high. The follow- ing horses started for THE BALLARAT STEEPLE CHASE, Of 150 sovs., with a sweepstakes of 10 sov.   added for all horses and mares, over leaps, and ab...

?fyt liar. 9AXX.T XBSVB. TUESDAY, 23BD DECEMBER. THE ELECTORAL BILL. TUESDAY, 23RD DECEMBER. IK the debate upon the Electoral Act Amendment Bili, during its progress through committee, on Thursday night, the preponderance of argument was upon the aide of the Opposition, while the Ministry obtained a majority of votes. The fourth clause, conferring the franchise upon every male person legally seised of an estate of the value of fifty pounds, or of the annual value of five pounds, was the champ clos upon which the legislative jousters joined issue ; the battle cry upon the one side being " equal political rights ! for all," and upon the other, " special i political-pri-rilegea for property."
