Open Column. "For the opinions of Correspondents expressed here we are not responsible; we give every phase of intelligently expressed opinion a place in this column, refusing no useful letter merely because its sentiments differ from our own." THE FOURTH CLAUSE. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 5 January 1857

<: For the opinions of Correspondents expressed I here we are not responsible ; we give ever}' ; phase of intelligently expressed opinion a ; place iii this column, refusing no useful let ter merely because its sentiments differ from ! oui- own." i ' THE FOURTH CLAUSE [ (To the Editor of the Star.) SIE,-It would seem from the reported sentiments of some of the gentlemen at the meeting of Mr Lalor's committee the other evening, that there are people on Ballarat who consider, or profess to consider, the principle involved iu the fourth clause as one of some doubt and difficulty, not easily to be mastered at once ; and one respecting which, they appear to be waiting for some special revelation-perhaps from Mr Lalor himself ere they can make up their minds on the subject. It is a pity that these gentlemen should bc still in the dark as to the iniqui tous tendency 'of the Property-qualification clause, and with the view of assisting them in their self deliberations, so as to b...

The Chairman said that when he was chosen as one of the Vice-Presidents of the League he did not understand that he was to be secretory and^ general runner .for thc League. Owing, however, to the neglect of some he had duties imposed upon him which were foreign to his office, and on that occasion there was no person present, to represent the officers of the League, whose province it was to prepare the necessary statements of pro gress ; Mr Weeks being the only ' member present who was prepared to offer any infor mation relative to the recent proceedi...

MARYBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 5 January 1857

MARYBOROUGH. While Chinaman's Flat is standing still the Alma is raising its head once more, and in another week or two, there is reason to believe that, in place of a few solitary tents, with some scores of inhabitants, we may have to report a very different state of things, most of the wet sinkings being about to be resumed by the enterprising   diggers from Ballarat and that direction.   The business of our two banks here has   so much increased that a reinforcement of hands has been required to enable them to keep pace with the crowds, occasionally transacting business--a pretty sure sign of itself, taken in conjunction with the very   increased quantities of gold sending to   Melbourne by each escort, that the neigh boring diggings are very productive. A new rush took place this evening about half à mile to the east of the wet sinkings at Chinaman's flat; the prospector obtained 100 feet square, the tub having was...

I regret that I am not in a position to do so. Mr Humffray moved for the necessary returns, which was not opposed. The sum of £100,000 has been granted to j the Board pro tem., a proportion of which is to be placed to the credit of your Board, to enable you to commence work.
