NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 7 March 1865
NEWS AND NOTES. The public will no doubt be glad to learn through our report of the proceedings of the Water Com mission on Monday, that there need not be any apprehension of an immediate scarcity of water in Bnllarst for domestic purposes. The supply in ( ICirk'e Dam a fortnight ago was twelve feet deep, aud since then that quantity has been reduced very considerably; but iu anticipation of a continuance of the drought, arrangements have been made and are now nearly completed by which a large quantity of water will be diverted into the dam, thereby hap pily obviating the necessity of having recourse to the Swamp for a supply for domestic purposes. The water in the Swamp appears to be considered far inferior to that obtained from the reservoirs, and it would be ivell in that case if mining companies and other large consumers, where quality is not a matter of consEquence, could be supplied from this source, which it is stated at present contains a six months supply. On Sunday, at Clu...

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 8TH MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 8 March 1865
DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 8rn MARCH, 1865. THE pro-tariff meeting in the Exhibition Building' on Monday was a very noisy one, which we regret. Nothing can more effec tually or more speedily explode the fallacies of the protectionist orators than letting; them have full swing. They demand " a fair field and no favor," and we demand no less on their behalf. With an intelligent and edu cated jury to decide, we should be perfectly willing to allow the protectionists to state their own case, and would not care to offer anything in reply, for if the end of any one pro-taxation speech does not refute the beginning any one speaker is safe to be refuted by the others. Our complaint has always been that the protectionists advanced nothing in the shape of argument, and the complaint must once more be made in regard to the proceedings of Monday night. True, Mr Kyte took off his coat and tossed a six pence into the air, but whether it came to the ground head up or tail up, and what momen tous issu...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR THE BALLARAT CRICKET CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 8 March 1865
LETTER TO THE EDITOR THE BALLAliAT CRICKET CLUB. Fin,-The Ballarat Club often piny several matches with local clubs, such as clubs from Smythesdale, &c., but they would not give the benefit of one or two matches to that young colts' club which has been organised for the past four years-the Eveniag Star. Now, Mr Editor, do you not thiuk that if the Ballarat Club, ray the first or second eleven, would only play matches with the said colts' club, that some of our youngsters would become very fine players in the course of a short space of time? This is the case in the metroiolis. There every Satur day some of the finest clubs play against young colts, and often these matches are very interesting. I only hope that before long we wi!l see in the local journals that a match is to be played between an eleven of the Ballarat Club and a like number, or even odds, of the " Evening Star. Hopiug that tlicy will, I remain A COLT. Doveton street, 4th March. BALtiRXT DISTRICT HOSPITAL.-Retu...
