The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. SATURDAY, 4TH MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 4 March 1865
mn,Y ISSUE. SATURDAY, 4m MARCH, 1865. MINISTERS are determined to fightitoutto the last. They have drawn the sword and thrown away the scabbard. There is to be no more trifling with them. They will carry their protection tariff, salt tax, corn tax and all, or perish in the attempt. To be constant and persevering- in a good cause is excellent, but somehow we never do see 6uch undeviating constancy and determined perseverance in good as in evil-on behalf of truth as on be half of error. When weak men commit them selves to a wrong course, and have their folly demonstrated to them, though unable to answer the arguments with which they are attacked they can always show their firmness of character by practically contemning tho wisdom of their critics and going on in their own way. If very hard pushed by reasoning adverse to their own views, it becomes necessary to go to still greater lengths in error in order the more effectually to answer their opponents. For is it not an all-sufficing r...

COURT OF MINES. Friday, 3rd March. (Before His Honor* Judge Rogers.) Doyle v Forbes and others-Mr M Dermott for the plaintiff, Mr Walsh with Mr Trench for the de fendants. This was a motion that additional evid ence might be taken. At the hearing it transpired that a missing agreement between the parties had been sent at the last moment to the plaintiff's at torney in an anonymous envelope. The Court there fore ordered that advertisements be issued calling on the sender of the agreement to disclose himself. The pertinence of the documentary evidence thus obtained, and the proof of its authenticity was argued on the ground that the agreement in question would establish perjury on the defendant's side. Counsel now read the affidavit of one Thomas Robinson, a law clerk, who averred that on the ls3'.h October, 1864, he had received the document in question from the witness Piatt, who averred in his affidavit that on the date in question ho picked up the document at Brophy'8 Hotel.

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 4 March 1865
MINING INTELLIGENCE. Friday's business at the Corner was not so large as that of the previous day, though the half day does not always bear the character ofbeingbehind an ordinary fnll day in the matter of business. There was Borne enquiry for the new ventures just put in the mar ket, and Marmion's and Jewellers' Shops were in request, and even the more juvenile Young Canadians, Friar Tucks, and others of the late born projects were occasionally placed. For Cambrians there was enquiry, but there were hardly any shares to be got. Carngham stock is in pretty good odor, and indeed nearly all of the multitudinous ventures launched within the last few weeks seem to be buoyant &z present. AH the Dauntless scrip has been taken up as also the Racecourse Company's shares." Ballarat Tunnel and Hepburn Estate scrip is thought well of, and the stock negotiates readily at good rates. The new issue of scrip in the Result Company is said to be going off well, aad the dismissal of the Warde...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR UNLOCK THE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 4 March 1865
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR UNLOCK THE MINES. SIR,-la reply to a not very courteous letter from a shareholder in the Band of Hope Company, I would advise the gentleman in question in any future communication to avoid the very ungentlemanly habit of abusing people who happen to differ with him in opinion. He probably has no idea how much mischief a very Billy individual may create through the use of indiscreet language. Mr Train, by foul abuse of England, gained the applause of idiotic mobs in the Northern States; and Mr Train and his ruffianly followers are considered by many uudis criminating Englishmen truthful exponents of the real state of public feeling in the Northern States towards the old country. To give " Shareholder" an example nearer home, Mr Yale, our protectionist, member (I wish to heaven he and his protection- | ideas could be couflned to Jerusalem, where accord- , ing to Mr Vale the said ideas originated), did grievous wrong to the teetotal cause by one of his very indis ...

REFORM IN THE BAKING TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 4 March 1865
REFORM IN TUB BAKING TRADE. SIR,-1 beg to draw your attention to a case of gross injustice on the pnrt of the bakers of Ballarat, and for the purpose of explanation will state a few facts. Ou the 10th of this month a Public Bakery was started on Ballarat, the proprietor of which, in order to induce custom, lowered the prico of the .i lb loaf to lOd, or 2d less than the bakers of Bal larat were then selling the -1 lb loaf for. Iho bread supplied by the Public Bakery is excellent in quality, and ol' full weight, as I have proved. The Ballarat Bakers' Association took fright at seeing their mo nopoly in the price of bread at once put an end to, and called a meeting of their body for the purpose of considering the question, when it was unani mously resolved, by the master bnkers present, to supply the storekeepers, in the immediate neighbor hood of the obnoxious establishment, even if it should be at a loss to themselves, at prices which would enable them to sell for less than the Publi...
