NEW ZEALAND. MELBOURNE, 8th March. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 9 March 1865
NEW ZEALAND. MELBOURNE, 8fch March. xne iiero brings dates from Nelson to the 2nd instant. The Otiliko rush still continues. Two thousand diggers are awaiting conveyance from Nelson. Our Melbourne correspondent, writing of the motion to be submitted by the Government this day (Thursday), that the House go into committeo of supply, says:-Mr O'Sbanassy will move an amend ment on the Government proposition, which will have the eflect, of course, of a vote of want of con fidence in the present Ministry. It is not generally believed that the amendment will be carried, but as some of the Government supporters have signified their intention of voting against them, their majo rity will not be a very large one.
The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 9TH MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 9 March 1865
DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 9xh MARCH, 1865. IN our baste to become rich in this country we exemplify the folly of him who killed the goose with the goIHen eggs not more in the reckless way in which wo deal with the soil, than in the thoughtlessness displayed with reference to our timber. These are vices dis coverable in all new countries where sources of supply seem all but boundless, and it may almost be excused if a handful of settlers should make prodigal use of them. But if it be unscientific farming to abandon tract after tract of land so soon as its freshness is gone, and bad woodcraft not to secure the growth of a new tree for every one that has been felled, they assume the shape of evils of " the first magnitude when population becomes more concentred. It is then we find the same land cropped year after year until it haB given up every fertilising agent it once possessed, or once well-wooded ranges become hide-bound and sterile by wholesale denuda tion of their timber. The absen...

WEEKLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. Wednesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 9 March 1865
WEEKLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. Wednesday Evening. ihe approximate agricultural statistics for the year ending 31at March 1864, were issued with commend able activity in May that year, but we are likely to have those for the year ending 31 at March, 1865, still earlier, for the collectors have already been appointed, and some of them are at work. It is highly important to have these returns as quickly as possible, though they be only approximate-either as regardsminutecalculation on the Registrar-General's part or as regards completeness and accuracy on the part of the collectors. We have frequently pointed out the defective working of the present system of collecting the returns, and recom mended that instead of being got by a staff of travel ling collectors-who, however conscientious and assiduous, must miss many points of importance they should be gathered by registrars, resident in the various districts. These men-generally men of presence and influence-would be far more likely to s...
