RAILWAYS AND REVOLVERS IN GEORGIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 3 January 1857

RAILWAYS'' AND REVOLVERS IN ! GEORGIA. j The London Times contains, under .the above title, a narrative of a scene in the railway cars in the State of Georgia, United States, professing to be written by an eye witness, bnt which is in its details so utterly beyond any precedent in any country with the slightest pretensions to civilisation that we could almost believe that some in genious person- had succeeded in hoaxing the leading journal. Recent events, how ever, have so enlightened us as to the real state of mótala and manners in the Southern States, that we scarcely dare venture to pro nounce it untrue. _ The Times in a leader has also guaranteed ats authenticity. . We must premise that the writer describes himself as being seated in .a railway car, which left Macon, Georgia, on the evening of the 28th of August. Among the passengers was a young man, designated as A, accompanied i by two females. Another man, Bj entered ! afterwards, and took occasion to «plain to i G, another p...

MR LAIiOR'S COMMITTEE. j Pursuant to advertisement there 'was a meet ing of iii- Lalor's committee at the Council Chambers last evening, for the purpose of taking into consideration that gentleman's re cent vote on the Electoral Bill in the House of Assembly. Mr Cummins presided <m the .occasion, and opened proceedings by reading the 4th clause of the said bil!, and inviting discussion on thc i subject for which the committee had assembled. Mr Gillies thought as there were several pre sent who were not there before it would bs -jrell for them' to express their opinions with re ference to the vote Mr Lalor had giren in the House. His opinion of the clauses was that manhood suffrage was confirmed hy one, and a ?property qualification by the other; but he thought there should be no trammel whatever on the electoral powers of the people in reference to -elections for thc Lower House.

THE BALLARAT AGBICULTUEAL SOCIETY. On Saturday afternoon, a meeting of tbe J committee of this society was held af Bath's Hotel, Dr. Stewart in the chair. j Mr McDowaU said that the affairs of the i society could not be considered to be in so satis factory a condition as could be wished. This was owing to some misnnderstanding between ¡ the society and the late Honorary Secretary, Mr Dickson, who had certain hooks and documents connected with the society, which he refused to 1 give up. This proceeding certainly put the i society in a difficulty, but it was a difficulty which they would easily get through. He beg ged to propose that a meeting of those inte rested in the society take place on Saturday next. Mr Dickson seconded the motion.
