DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, I3TII MAJtUH, 1865. A hevibw of six or seven hundred men of ail arms in the volunteer service will no doubt, be a very pretty sight, and the people of Ballarat will not only be glad to see ic, but to have such a spectacle just now, as it will give something of pomp and circumstance to the visit which Sir Charles and Lady Darling and their retinue are this week to make to our town and district. We are loyal people, and shall do our best to give a fitting welcome to tbe Queen's representative. Ad dresses, arches, luncheons and toasts will doubtless be as plentiful and as becoming as they should be, and it will really be not a little gratifying to our holiday tastes to be able to give greater brilliancy to the whole by a military display like that promised to us in the review of Wednesday! Let us hope the weather will be fine, the local bodies blessed with punctuality and propriety, the soldiers all there, and our illustrious guests very pleasantly gratified. In th...
THE HON. WILLIAM NICHOLSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 13 March 1865
THE HON. WILLIAM NICHOLSON. In our Saturday's issue we reported the death of the Hon. William Nicholson, but could not spare room for anything beyoca mere mention of the fact. We now give, from the Age, some particulars of the deceased gentleman's useful career: " Mr Nicholson may almost be said to be another martyr to tho cares of political life. Some time ago he received warning that hia overtasked energies were beginning to give way, in tho shapa of a Blight attack of paralysis. From this, however, he reco vered, and continued to discharge his public dutieB with unabated vigor. In January, 1864, he had a second paralytic visitation, and this seizare, which, from the first, was regarded as of a very alarming character, eventually resulted in his death. His medical attendants never entertained any hopes that he would ultimotely recover, and this attack com pelled him to retire from public life. The deceased gentleman spent a good portion of the la3t twelve months among friends in t...

THE MORNING STAR CRICKET CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 13 March 1865
THE MORNING STAR CRICKET CLUJB Siu,-In your notice of the match played on Fri day, between the Ballarat second eleven and the Evening Star Cricket Clubs, you are good enough to say that the Evening Star colts " gave an earnest of the supply of some fresh cricketing material for the renovation of the senior club whenever it may be required." Lest it should be Burmised by the latter gentlemen that the juniors had formed their club with so ambitious an object, allow me to say that they never indulged in the expectation of being used as the material, to supply the wants of any other club. With reference to the latter part of your notice, that we contemplate challenging the tirst eleven, we may say that although we may ea. teem ourselves tolerable players we do not consider ourselves quite able to play the gentlemen com posing that team. When we are somewhat more advanced we may take this into consideration, but in the meantime we have hardly egotism enough to challenge cricketers of the...

But the would-be investor made application at my new auction mart, corner o£ Armstrong street, which is not open for business. , I don't think I shall try to move heaven and 'earth in this matter, but all that a business man can do shall be done. Yours, &c., 10th March. SAMUEL DEEBLE,
