THE UPPEU HOUSE AND THE TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 March 1865

THE UPPEU HOUSE AND THE TARIFF. On tho constitutional question of Upper House interference with the ministerial tariff, the Argus of Wednesday observes:-The attempt to establish any analogy between the two constitutions-the Imperial and the Colonial-is idle in tho extreme. If the Assembly is to the Council what the Commons is to the Lords, it is nevertheless not true that the Council bears a corresponding relation to the Assem bly such a3 the Lords does to the Commons. Tho Lords is an hereditary House, endowed by the ac cident of birth and an c-Bcutcheon with the right to legislate, but legislating directly by the immediate consent of no class in the state. Its mombers ex press tho opinions of no party, for no patty has entrusted them with its principles.

MONDAY'S DISASTROUS FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 2 March 1865

MONDAY'S DISASTROUS FIRES. The ravages of tho receut disastrous bush fires in this district have Dot yet been fully ascertained, (or each day brings accounts of serious losses hitherto unreported. Around Learmonth, the country to wards Lexton offers a very gloomy prospect, and smoke may even yet be seen rising from the fallen timber. The heavy wind which, prevailed on Mon day caused the fire to carry everything before it, and spread for miles around. A considerable portion of Messrs S. and T. Learmonth's run has been burned, and as far as cau be ascertained one thousand sheep have also been consumed, together with a quantity of fencing and other property. The loss in sheep was at first considered to lie nearly three thousand, but happily a number were afterwards found in another part of the run, which reduced the probable loss to the quantity now stated. In addi tion to tho persons already mentioned who have been 6ufTerers by the fire, we understand that Mr George Findlay has lose e...

THE FOUR TOWNS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 March 1865

_ THE FOUR TOWNS CILT,. SIR,- Being o( an enquiring turn of mind, I beg to enquire of the promoters of the bill culled the Four Towns Act whether they mean clause 255 to became law as regards two of the four towns; and il so, what then? This clause enacts or rather proposes to enact that " the Council of any such town may con struct or accept and have tho management and con trol of within such town any water works, &c." If the occult meaning of the promoters is come-at-able, I should like to know how this will affect the body known as the Ballarat and Ballarat Eiat Water Commission, which ia supposed to have a jurisdic tion over the two towns. Clause 221 is also deserv ing of attention by gas and water companies It ia not reserved for me to point out to the intelligent readers of the Star that clause (255) would give ft separate jurisdiction to each Councilintbiirrespecuro boroughs, and I apprehend that such ia not intended nor is it desirable. 2nd March. .AGUARDIENTE, THE I...

DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 3RD MAliCII, 1SC5. UNTIL the Ministerial protection tariff Lias been rejected by the Legislative Council we must be careful not to show any disre spect to that august bod}', and yet duty demands that we should admonish it to sub rait tamely to the indignity it has just Buffered at the hands of the Lower House, in the jejection of its amendments on the Land Bill, and pass the measure when again sent up to it even without its own amendments. This will bo a rather bitter p 11 for legislative councillors, but there is no help for it. All are agreed that the Duffy Act must be amended-most people consider Mr Grant's bill a reasonably good amending measure lion, gentlemen of the Upper House will therefore, we hope, prove magnanimous and allow it to become law even though not quite what they should have made it. A great opportunity now lies before the Upper House. In the course of political events a tide has come to its very door, which if taken at the flood will certai...
