Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 9 January 1857

¿& tu tn g. After a pretty liberal spell off for holiday keeping, the miners are buckling to again, and operations are being resumed in earnest in every direction. We too have *' spelled" with the reat, and after a fortnight's " shift off" have returned to work in regular order for a good " slant" into the business befrre us. There has been of late a good deal of croaking- amongst, thc Ballarat folk with respect to the prospects of the' district, and we are of opinion that a very fair founda tion existed for some grumbling and quaking. But a stranger would have fancied, had he visited us daring the past week or so, that wc were at the very sum mit of our golden fortunes, and really had so much money that we scarcely knew what to do with it. For truth to say the miners have been in no wise niggardly in their support of nobbier-sellers, and those who cater for thc amusement of the public. We only hopehhat now they have returned to their usual avocations, they will manifest as ...

Tliursday 1st January. ¡ ^.ueiore A. JN. Wrixon, Esq., Judge.) ¡ Ajenan v. JJragshaw-In thÍ8 case Mr ' Rainy read the facts drawn up upon which an appeal had been entered by the j defendant was founded. It appeared that the plaintiff Mary Denan had recovered JÊ25 for injuries sustained by being bitten by the defendants dog. The appeal was allowed. Frew v. Ochiltree-In this case Mr Cope moved for a new trial. The plaintiff had ? recovered £145 for six months salary, due 1 to thc plaintiff as a gold buy» to the de I fendant, the manage* of the Bank of New I South Wales, at Ballarat. Mr Cope con tended that he was entitled to a new trial, first, on the ground that being hired for six months, and being discharged at the end of one month, he could only re cover one month's salary.

TOWN TALK. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 9 January 1857

TOWN TALK.     It was currently rumored in well-informed     circles last evening, that the Chief Secretary, " on behalf of self and fellows," (including Solicitor-General,) in the course of the day intimated a desire to resign the seals of office, but at the request of his Excellency the Governor they were induced to change their mind and hold on a little longer. We give the on dit as we have heard it, but cannot say that we believe it to be " founded on fact." If it be true, the Governor doubtless had not much trouble in persuading the lads to return to school to be jerked again. His Excellency Sir Henry Barkly and Lady visited the Benevolent Asylum yesterday, and were received by several members of the com- mittee of management. His Excellency ex- pressed himself highly pleased with the state of the institution. In another column will be found a notice of the fancy bazaar held yesterday in the Ex- hibition Building, to aid the b...

YesterdayTnfonnwion was brought into Sandhust that new-diggings had been opened in the vicinity of Mount Hope. There were some four ni five hundred persons already on thc ground, which presented every appearance of being highly auriferous. The gold obtained was very coarse, but there was a great want of water, so much so, in fact, that it is supposed the diggings can not be tested with advantage during the present summer. Rumor already states, that a large number of persons that had visited the new field had left, intending to return at a more favorable opportunity. At Dunolly, and the gold-fiçlds in that direction, there. is evidently some exciteme...

LOCAL COURT ELECTION. TO THE MINERS OF BALLARAT. (Per favor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 10 January 1857

I LOCAL COÜET ELECTION, j TO THE MINERS OF BALLARAT. (Per favor of the Star.) ii ENTLEHEN,-x wo years ago i retired from public into private life, after upwards of three years laborious (and to me) costly a¿vocacy of the cause of the people, and the requirement of social and political reforms for the mining community. My retirement was not in conséquence of change in opinion. My political creed remains I the same. Nor yet was it, that I had forfeited ! the good opinion of the diggers, for whom 11 labored so long ;-that I still retain. ^ The pres- j sure of private affairs rendered the act of retiring not only a duty to myself, but to friends also. It was therefore I resolved to take no part in public affairs until sueh time as I had faithfully discharged those duties, and freed myself from the obligations of friends, and the " blackrod" of the " old political league." So much have I done. Believing, gentlemen, that I can serve your interests as well in future, as I did in the past, ...

BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. Melbourne, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 10 January 1857

BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. Melbourne, Friday Evening-. j The Assembly met to day at noon. There was some cariosity apparent among the hon. members to know what course the Government would take with reference to their defeat yester day. ! Mr Haines informed the House that after I mature deliberation he and his colleagues had resolved not to resign their trust on account of the vote in Mr Grover's case, and would re tain their present position unless the House should express their withdrawal of confidence ;n them by a direct vote. They did not wish to cause any emharassment to the colony by their resignation, which he was sure would be the case were they to resign in the present pos ture of affairs. Mr O'shanassy considered the conduct of the Government highly unconstitutional. Mr Michie ridiculed the threat of resignation which the Ministry had thrown out. Mr Haramill defended thc conduct of the Government. Dr Evans made au able speech, and con demned the conduct of the Government in ap ...

PARLIAMENTARY SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 10 January 1857

PARLIAMENTARY SUMMARY. The following business took place in the Assembly yesterday, after our reporter had left The House then went into Committee of Supply. Mr Sladen proposed to take the supplementary estimates for 1847 first. The first item was the sum of £700. for payment to counsel for fees for prosecution. Mr Dully objected to vote on the ground of official public prosecutors being already provided and paid. Mr Michie said the duties of these officers had now become too onerous to bc discharged without assistance. Mr Grant approved of the arrangement of feeing occasional barristers as the most econo mical one that could be adopted. Dr Greeves supported thc vote, as circumstances had of late thrown greatly increased duties on the Crown law officers. Mr Stawell confirmed this statement. Mr Horne, Mr. O'shanassy, Mr Goodman, and Dr Evans, followed with several suggestions and moorine*, ? without, however, opposing the motion. The dem was agreed to. The sum of £200 was voted towar...

Present-The Chairman, Councillors Tul loch, Carver, and Bolger. The following is the charge brought by Councillor Carver against Mr Dimant.--The charge I make against Mr Dimant is that he exceeded his duty in ordering me to clean out my water-closet, the same not being re quired, and that be by his unwarrantable pro ceedings put me to an unnecessary expense. Councillor Carver said that he charged Mr Dimant in having called upon him to empty a certain water closet, when it was not ne cessary to do so. Mr Dimant had come into his store and directed him to cleanse the plate in question, when he told him it was j not required. Mr Dimant said he was of a different opinion.

MEETING AT SEBASTOPOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 10 January 1857

MEETING AT SEBASTOPOL. Yesterday evening a public meeting of the inhabitants of Sebastopol Hill was held at the Johu O'Groat Hotel, to consider the effect of Mr Lalor's vote on the mining community, and to take steps to attend a meeting to hear that gentleman's explanation and give their opinion upon the same. Some 200 miners were pre sent, and Mr Wall occupied the chair. The chairman in opening the proceedings said that sonic three months ago when Mr Lalor addressed them in that room, the meeting then assembled did not think that a cause of nüsunderstanding would so soon arise between Mr Lalor and his consti tuents, but it might bc observed that accidents would happen in the best regulated families. The Chau man then read thc placard calling the meeting, and called upon Mr Weeks to address them. Mr Weeks said that when he had the honor in a public meeting of proposing Mr Lalor as a fit person to represent North Grenville, he had spoken warmly in his favor. They must recol lect that...

GOSSIP FROM HOME ! (By a Correspondent.) Your Antipodes, 8th Nov.. 1856.

Russia evinces a decided de termination to side with Bomba, and so we stand.
