AMERICA. 1st March, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 10 March 1865

AMEKICA. (From a Correspondent.} 1st March. 1865. I The State of Ohio, of which Cincinnati, situated in the south-west corner, is the chief city, is inter sected by'railways running to all points of the com paES. In point of railway mileage, Ohio is said to possess a larger number of milcB of finished railroads tban aDy other State in the Union; even New York and Pennsylvania not excepted. Much of this is no doubt due to ibe accident of position. Occupying the elevated undulating tract of country, 'lying be tween Lake Erie on the north, and the Ohio Iiiver on the south, ncioss which nearly ail the through lines of railroad between the eastern seaboard and the great west must run, the railway system of the" state has thus received a wonderful development. Then between the inland navigation of tile Ohio and its tributaries, and that ol' the great Jakes, there must necessarily be connecting links of communication, either by railway or canal, which the state has not been backward in for...

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 10TH MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 10 March 1865

DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, lOxii MAItCH, 1865. SOME intelligent politicians Lave been driven to the verge of despair by the apparent suc cess of the protection agitation. With a public clamoring for the imposition of new taxes, a House of Assembly consisting in great part of men either wholly ignorant of economical science or servile agents of the more untaught portion of their constituencies, and a Ministry capable of ruining the coun try to maintain itself in power, they think it is of no use to offer any opposition to the protection legislation now in progress. They think the case hopeless, and that a nation deter minedly bent upon compassing its own ruin should be left to its own devices. If people will knock their heads against a wall, they must onl}' have their own way. If a legion of devils have entered into the working men of Victoria, it is of no use standing between them and the sea. Others, again, taking a more hopeful view, say that the evil will work its own cure. Let the peo...
