The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 6TH MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 6 March 1865
DAILY ISSUE. . MONDAY, 6m MARCH, 1865. Two things concerning- women and girls were mooted a few days ago in the Legislative Assembly. One was the question of how best to deal with the fearful prevalence of criminal assaults upon young girls, and the other was the claim made on the behalf of a concession of the larger franchise to women. With re gard to the former subject, we do not hesi tate to say that every person who has any interest in morality and social decency, and who has watched the recorded proceedings of our criminal courts for the last year or two, will leel that it is absolutely necessary that some steps be taken to arrest the crime in question. We are disposed to think that the frequency of the crime is greatly owing to the frequency of acquittals, and to the absurdly light punishments awarded when convictions have been obtained. It is a pain ful fact that the most august tribunals known to our law are too commonly scenes of dis gusting levity and brutal insult when as...

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 7TH MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 7 March 1865
DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 7m MARCH, 18G5. WHATEVER may be the material advantage to the people of popular forms of govern ment, there is little doubt as to their demoral ising1 effects on those who have to conduct the machinery of such government, and to this may be traced, to some extent, the unsuit ableness of our colonial administrations. The promises of overy clique of new aspirants to office are adapted to the wishes and wants of the public at the time, and the chief question that appears to affect the minds of colonial statesmen is, how to so trim their sails as to catch every breath of public opinion that can aid in sustaining them in office. The good of the country is lost sight of in the sordid desire to maintain a position of power and profit, and men whose characters were unimpeachable in private life or in personal political relations no sooner become members of a dominant clique than their principles prove as elastic as the muscles of an acrobat, and they perform tricks tha...
