AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 25 December 1856

[ AMERICA. Adrices from New York, by the Asia, are to the 1st of October. In a speech delivered at Bichmond, Ur Wise, Governor of Virginia, indulged in the most impious and violent language to the Nor thern party, stigmatising them as "deadly enemies to their country, dastards, demons, guilty of the ßin of Cain, the worst of madmen, fratricides," ¿cc. Some alarm continued to exist at New York consequent upon the close proximity of yellow fever. The Board of Underwriters of New York have issued a decree to the effect that the "limit of grain," on and after the 1st instant, on board any vessel for the whiter months will be fixed at three-fourths her registered tonnage, much to the chagrin of shipowners and agents. This movement, which was originated win the . view of greater safety to grain laden ships, will it is very generally believed cause such an ad vance in the rates of freight aa will compensate for thc restrictions of the Board of Underwri ters.

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 25 December 1856

Mining.   The Local Court elections come off on the 14th of next month—three weeks hence. The     majority of the present members, we believe,   intend to stand again, and there is little doubt that, with here and there an exception, they stand a good chance of being re-elected.   Mr Baker, of course, retires, as his new office will require bis attention ; and we are informed that one or two others hare signi fied their wish to retire ; so that a few fresh members will most likely be required to fill up the nine. ? It strikes us that the new Court should' embrace representatives of a department of mining hitherto, if we mistake not, totally un represented in our local legislature. That de partment is one ofgrowing importance, andone the expediency, even the necessity of atten tion to which will every day became more apparent. We allude to quartz mining. Hitherto the members of the Local Court have been exclusively comp...
