CRESWICK. (From our own Correspondent.) Thursday, January 8th. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 10 January 1857
CRESWICK. (From our oten Correspondent.J Thursday, January 8th. BUSH FIÉES.-Four men were arrested, yesterday, while travelling on the road to Daisy HilL near Escott, with some drays, for leaving a camp fire alight which they had kindled, and by-wbifch some property, belonging to John Campbell, a farmer, was destroyed, and several other home steads in the neighborhood endangered. After a mass of evidence had been produced, the magistrates discharged one, and fined the three remaining prisoners in the mitigated penalty of £5 each, it having been shown that the whole of the defendants had done all they could to extinguish the flames when they found the danger increasing, but it cannot be too extensively known that £50, or six months imprisonment may be inflicted for this offence, and that any person, though not ; a police officer, can toke into custody the offenders. I am glad that such a law is now in force, for we are surrounded by bush fires to day, principally caused by persons ca...

THE NEW REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 January 1857
THE NEW REGULA.'! IONS. THE new eode of Local Court Regu lations has at last made its appearance as sanctioned by the Executive Council Since the publication of the original draft, our readers will remember that some additions and alterations were made and sent down to Melbourne ; so that the regulations as they now exist will be found to differ in a few points from that first copy published here, when they were first dispatched ! for confirmation by the Governor. Among those differences are the addi tion of a class Ï" for sinking more than 300 feet when rock requires blasting ; this class gives an area of 124 x 124 feet to 8 men. The alteration required in rule XVI relating to forfeited shares, has not been made although pointed out by us in time. As the rule stands, If within forty-eight hours after the posting of such notice, the parries whose names are first on the Surveyor's book for vacant or forfeited shares do not appear to receive the conditional transfer of such shares, th...

CLUNES. As mentioned in our issue of Friday last a body of about twenty mounted troopers, under the charge of Mr. Su perintendent Foster and Mr Warden Daly, proceeded to Clunes on Thurs day evening, for the purpose, of putting a stop to the midnight depredations that have been lately carried on there. Great caution vas exercised in'ap proaching the neighborhood, so that the alarm might not be given, and the object of the expedition frustrated.

THE BALLARAT AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. À publie meeting of this society was held on Saturday last at Quiney's Hotel, race conree, some nine or ten gentlemen being present ; Mr R. Muir in the chair. The chairman said the society had met to consider the conduct of their late honorary «creían-, Mr Dickson. Mr M'Dowall said, the object of the meeting was to take the necessary steps produced by the conduct of Mr Dickson, which had placed them in an unpleasant position, as their present secretary was all at sea for want of his books. He had met Mr Dickson in the street, and had asked him if he intended to attend this meeting, when he said that he had ]o.;t sufficient time and money over the society, and all he wanted was fair play fruin the society. He was for giving Mr Dickson every fairplay, but as in the mean time the society required its books and sketches, he begged to bring forward a mo tion which would meet the requirements of the case.

The Star. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 12TH JANUARY, 1857. THE PEOPERTT QUALIFICATION [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 January 1857
?\}t êhx. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 12TH JANUARY, 1857. THE PEOPERTT QUALIFICATION MINISTERS have sustained a defeat, but it has not been followed, as some of the more sanguine members of the Opposition anticipated, by a resignation and a crisis. The affirmation of the second reading of the "Assembly Members' Qualification Bill," by a ma jority of seven, on Tuesday evening, involving, as that bill does, a fundamen tal change in the New Constitution Act, led the political quid nunc» of the metropolis to prophesy the retirement of the AJministration, a dissolution of Parliament, and a general derangement of public affairs in consequence. Wed nesday came, but it brought no fulfil ment of the predictions so confidently promulgated by those who professed to be in the confidence of the Ministry ; and it was ascertained that they did not consider the vote upon Mr Daffy's '* Qualification Bill" tantamount to a vote of want of confidence in their po licy, and therefore they had no inten tion of r...

VIOLENT ASSAULT ABD CAPTURE OF SUSPICIOUS CHARACTERS. - On Sunday afternoon au assault was committed in a house known as " Grenville Cottage," kept by a Mrs Jones, in Drummond-street, Town ship.

The assaulting-party, a Cornishman, gave his op ponent four cuts on the head, one of which is said to be very dangerous. -The wounded man was conveyed to thé Hospital, and the j Cornishman and five females w...
