THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. NEW YORK, 17th December. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 14 March 1865
THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. (From the limes Correspondent.) NEW YOUK, 17th. December. The public anxiety for news of General Sherman has been relieved by the announcement, on Confe derate, and therefore unimpeachable authority, that be has rcached the seacoast, and taken by assault Fort M'Allister, commanding the entrance to Ossi baw Sound, and forming one of the main defences v of Savannah. The announcement is simultaneously made that be has captured Savannah itself and 11,000 prisoners, after a fight which lasted eight hours. This news, though generally credited by the Federal preES, is not official, and rests entirely upon statements made by steamboat passengers from Charleston Bar, who allege that it ?was received by flag of truce just prior to their de parture. Mr Lincoln states, as a fact within his own knowledge, that General Sherman has reached the Atlantic with 40,000 men, black and white, "more than he started with; and, as the Confederates admit, and the Federals assert, th...

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 14TH MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 14 March 1865
DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 14tu* MARCH, 1865. WHATEVER be the course followed by the Legislative Council in reference to the tacking on of the tariff to the Appropriation Bill, the action of the Ministry of Victoria can hardly be without influence on the legislatures of other British colonies. The danger of making "the extreme medicine of the constitution its daily bread" is not, unfortunately, confined to the particular country in which the first steps in the extreme course are taken, but a prece dent is established which may become the excuse and the warrant for further and more dangerous innovations, wherever party strife or popular folly is carried to extremes. The British statesmen who forced the paper duty on the House of Lords will learn, we may venture to predict, with some surprise that their action has been made the justification of a Ministry which, to say the least, has taken the first step in a neiv and dangerous path. If the forcing of the repeal of a single duty can be mad...
