MONDAY NIGHT'S PROTECTION MEETING. Tbo JleraU reports:-The largest iu-door meeting which has ever been held in Melbourne took place on Monday night ia the Exhibition building, under the auspices of the Australasian Kefjrm League, to adopt resolutions in support of the Government tarilf. Every inch of loom was occupied, and from the closeness with which the dense mass of human beings were packed, it ia impossible to computo the numbers. As the meeting was the largest, so it certainly was the noisiest which has ever been held in the city. From the very commencement, it was evident that certain persons had intended designedly to offer an interruption to the proceedings, and even before the chairman had taken his seat some parties commeuced to scatter pepper about the neighbor hood of tho platform, to tbo great annoyaneo of tho30 who occupied that portion of tho building. Egg3, certainly not of the fre3hest de scription, were also used for the purposo of pelt ing the speakers, but the f...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 8 March 1865

MINING INTELLIGENCE. Though one or two of the brokers' offices were busily employed on Tuesday, the total business of tho day was smaller than we have had to record for some weeks past. It is possible that the spirit of speculation is undergoing a change, and taking up the business of promoting instead of jobbing, to such an unprecedented extent in the share market flooded with prospectuses of new ventures, of all degrees of soundness, and in every corner of the district. However gratifying Buch a sign of the elasticity of our resources must be, it is still worthy of consideration whether or not there are, for a time at least, a sufficient number of schemes before the public to allow of their being properly enquired into and if found suitable, supported. An indiscri minate and speculative launching into mining invest ment, by persons in too many instances totally igno rant of the antecedents of many of the claims now taken up for the fourth or fifth time within the re collection of ...

FOREST TREES SUITED FOR VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 8 March 1865

FOREST TREES SUITED i'Uli VICTORIA. The usual monthly meeting of the Victorian Hor ticultural Improvement Society was held in Mel bourne on Monday night, when Mr W. Ferguson read a paper on " Trees best adapted for ornamental planting in Victoria." The paper stated that the present season had been very trying to ornamental trees, and had taught many valuable lessons, while it sealed the fate ol many species hitherto considered suitable to the climate. Only a few deciduous European trees could withstand the drought of such a Beaaon as the present. The ash, birch, beech, ches nut, lime maple, sycamore, and larch would never become as ornamental as those in England; but the oak, elm, walnut, and all the varieties of evergreen oak, bad well withstood the drought. The family of conifera: must chiefly be looked to for our orna mental trees, and they could not be too extensively plantsd for ornamental purposes. Out of a collec tion of 170 species of pine, the large mnjority were suited to ...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 9 March 1865

MINING INTELLIGENCE. There is no improvement in the share market. Wednesday's transactions bavin? fallen short of those of the two previous days. In icspect ot prices there is no falling off visible in the actual sales, but many sellers are in the market who^ a^few^ days ago were buyers, and this causes a diminution in de mand, whilst the continued influx of new schemes fills the brokers' lists, and is inducing those gentle men to discountenance the bringing forward, of any more fresh schemes for a time. If this should be persistently done, the good effects would soon be apparent. The following sales are reported Vic toria, £102 10s, £105; Prince Alfred, £51, £52 10s, £53, £55, £56; Pioneer, Bulldog, £55; Koh-i-Noor, £49; Defiance, £41; South Grenville, £34; Bunin- ! yong Company, £30; Specimen Hill No. 3 North, £21; Albion, £19 5s; Alston and Weardale, £17 os; !

A RACECOURSE FOR CLUNKS. Bin,-The cool application of r. lew misguided individuals of Clunes lor 11 pie.pe of ground of noS less than four hundred acres for a race coum*, is one more.specimen of the absurdities to which local pre judices lead. This will ha more plainly stun when I state that there is a moat excellent course situated as near as possible half way bc-nvcen Creswick r.nd Clunes, substantially fenced in, and every appurtenance,including a capital grand stand, saddling paddock, good running ground, steeple chase course, &e., &c., the cost of which altogether has been nearly £500. Again, about the same distance the other aides of Cluneals a fine course granted to Smcatoa, and various improvements effected, and if I recollect right, the first year there was touie blending of the two places, and a Clunes Cup or Plate was named by the Smeaton stewards to be run for, but I believe all that could be pot from Clunes was a sum not ex ceeding £20, and last year und...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. FARMERS' COMMONS. SIR,-In your issue of Saturday last, I find that one of the Buninyongshire councillors complained that the farmers' commons arc a burden u;on the funds of the shiro council, and not a Bourcu of re venue as tbey should be, as a remedy for which ho proposes to sell the farmers' commons. I allow that the councillors have a right to complain while such a state of things lasts, but with the remedy proposed Idonotcgree. As a remedy, I would suggest the following : let all the farmers' commons within tea miles of each other appoint one stock-rider, for to keep each commons accounts separately and see that each farmer pays for all the cattle he runs on the common. Then the salary, which under the present system of management is paid to each stock rider would, at the end of the year, be a nice sum to hand over to the Shire Council for making our roads. In order to make mv proposition hotter under stood, let U3 take four of the farmers' com mons within...
