POLICE COURT. Friday, 26th December. (Before W. Turner, Esq., S.M., and Inspector Foster, J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 27 December 1856

POLICE COURT. Friday, 26th December. (Before W. Turner.-Esq., S.M., and Inspector Foster, J.P.) The public were kept waiting not a quarter to eleven o'clock by the absence of the magis- trate, who did not take his seat until the time mentioned. We believe this is rarely the case with our excellent stipendiary magistrate, but it is a pity that it ever should occur, since there are so many other gentlemen in the Camp, and about the town who could go on with the busi- ness when the regalar functionary happens to be from any cause absent. As we sat waiting for the opening of the court, we heard several parties bitterly complaining of the loss of time and money the delay would occasion them, whose business demanded their personal atten- tion. The law should not be made to cut two ways and keep a man waiting to his loss, or     mulct him in loss if not punctual in answering the summonses " to be present at ten o'clock in the forenoon." Wm. McShean, was charged by...

ARRIVAL OF HIS EXCELLENCY SIR H. BARKLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 27 December 1856

ARRIVAL OF HIS EXCELLENCY SIR j H. BARKLY. ! The arrivai of hii Excellency Sir H. j Barkly, the new Governor of Victoria, on Tuesday night, took the inhabitants of its metropolis rather by surprise. The lateness of the how of arrival, after a run unprecedentedly short, was probably the cause of this, but it may also be said that a remissness has prevailed in certain quarters in reference to preparations which should undoubtedly have been made sooner, as the arrival of his Excellency might reasonably have been expected shortly, or rather immediately after Christmas, and that j festival generally finds people privately engaged and not inclined to continue in the arena of business. j The Oneida wu« telegraphed as off the Heads i at about half-past six on Tuesday evening, I and the intelligence was instantly forwarded ! to the Acting-Governor, Major General Mac- j arthur, and to such of the members of the i Executive as happened to be in Melbourne at the time.

CHRISTMAS SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 27 December 1856

CHEISTMAS SPORTS.   At home, in Old England, Christmas time is   alway observed as a period especially set apart for junketting, to which, according to historians, our   fore-fathers were.equally attached.as ourselves,     who live in a more civilized age. It would   seem that emigration to the antipodes has not altered our characteristic in this respect, and on   the Ballarat gold-fields Boxing Day is equally as much a holiday as it is in London, Edin-   burgh, or Dublin.           From an early hour in the morning the Mam-road , was crowded with . holiday makers, the majority of whom appeared to be making their way to the Charlie Napier Assembly room, , where the lovers of the truly old English sport of wrestling had the oppor unity of witnessing some first-rate play. It would seem that a, Ballarat Wrestling Club h...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 27 December 1856

I Hocai intelligence, GOOD OVT OP ETIL.-The wet drifts with which the miner has to contend in the conduct of hi* operations are, after the rocks, about the greatest annoyance, and necessitate the largest outlay of time and labour and risk of money, of any of the obstacles which oppose his pro gress. Thc water obtained, however, from theBe under-ground watercourses have, in two or three instances, lately, been turned to some good account; and our White Horse corre- ¡ spondent suggests the farther utilising of these baled waters by gathering them into reservoirs, ?? and using them for pnbhc baths. Something is already practised in the rough on one part of Frenchman's, where the United Miners' Com pany have a pit about 15 feet square, and 5 or 6 feet deep, into which their drift water runs, and the men coming np from the bottom of the shaft are in the habit of plunging. Standing on the Miner's Bight Hill, the other day, we observed a furrow-like mark down the face of the hill opposite,...

THE NATURALIZATION CLAUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 29 December 1856

THE NATTJRALIZATION CLAUSE. IT is with. much, satisfaction that we j draw attention to the following peti-1 tion of the German population of this district praying for an alteration of the clause in the Electoral Bill, which requires that all aliens must be natu ralized for a term of three years be fore they can be entitled to a vote. This clause is so absurd, and so utterly opposed to the spirit that should cha racterise the legislation of a new country, that we are surprised at its adoption by any Government what ever. It is clearly our best policy to offer every reasonable inducement to the industrious immigrants of all civilised nations to settle in the colony, and this we can only do by throwing open to them all the advantages that we ourselves enjoy. lt is well known that the Germans in South Australia have been among the most successful and the most in dustrious of thc settlers in that thriving colony, and their economy and per severance have been no less con spicuous in the b...

Sat there was one part of the subject ou which the learned lecturer touched but slightly, and which I would "hun see a full explanation of : That is to say-What data have, geologists for assuming that the ' richest veins of quartz lie contiguous to the surface of . the earth; I for one, holding the opinion, that all the gold obtained in the alluvial sinkings, originally came from ont of quartz veins, being separated therefrom by the . combined action of water and air, external and j internal.
