GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 March 1865
GERMANY. The smaller States of Germany are still consider iog whether or not it is possible so to organise them selves as to avoid being eaten. The plan which finds moat favor is to dissolve the Confederation, and unite all the little States into one Power, a plan which assuredly will not work. In the first place, the new Power will not be a State, but merely a smaller Federation with Bavaria and Saxony for rulers instead of Austria and Prussia. In the second place, the great- monarchies once released from the Federal bond would eat up the duchies at pleasure; and in the third, the small States are by no means unanimous. Hanover, surrounded as she is by Prussia, hardly dare accept the scheme, Baden cer tainly will not. Mecklenburg-Scliwerin ia too closely allied with. Prussia, and as to the little Duchies they can be coerced or bought at discretion. There remain Bavaria, Wurtemberg, aud Saxony, States large enough, to form a kiugdorn if united, but really di vided in creed, in habit...

ROME. THE POPE'S ENCYCLICAL LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 March 1865
ROME. Tin; POPE'S ENCYCLICAL LETTER. The issue of this document haa been already an nounced. The numerous propositions which it con tains embrace a wide field, and relate to almost every form of progress in thought or policy. Rationalism is strongly condemned. Civil and religious liberty, and a free press, ere declared not to be necessary for the well-being of a State, and the ecclesias tical power is stated to be by Divine right distinct from and independent of the civil power. The whole purport of the letter is to show the necessity for the authority of the Catholic Church in order to the happiness of the world. Subjoined is a brief digest of this re markable document:-His holiness reminds the prelates that his predecessors have never failed to state and condemn the errors against the fundamen tal principles of religion spread throughout socicty, and in particular against the lioman Catholic Church. He adds that from the commencement of his pontificate ho has invariably rebuked th...
LATEST INTELLIGENCE. Home News Office, 26th January. AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 March 1865
LATEST INTELLIGENCE. Home News OJ)lcst 2Gth January. AMERICA. Tho news from America is still unusually barren of military events. We iiear much of preparations, and sotuo movements are reported which may prove preliminary to important undertakings; but there are no operations of consequence. The armies before Richmond and Peters trarg have for some time ceased to be the most active of the Federal forces, and the only change reported from that quarter is the super cession of General Butler by General Ord, an able and well tried soldier. General Sherman is stated iu Richmond papers to bo concentrating his army at Hardeeville, in South Carolina, to the north of the Savannah River; he is therefore preparing to advance. The state ment that General Lee i3 about to place himself at the head ot an army to oppose him, comes as a mere Washington rumor; but the estimation in which Sherman's military qualities are held at Richmond makes it iar from probable. The accounts from the South-west are...

FIGHT FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP BETWEEN WORMALD AND MARSDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 March 1865
FIGHT FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP BE TWEEN WOKMA.LD AND MARSDEN. (From the Home Hews.) On 3rd January, the day originally intended an attempt was made to bring the above event to a settlement. Unable to procure a special train, the promoters of the' figlit were compelled to venture upon a journey by the morning " paper traia" from Euston Square to Marston Gate, a retired station near Aylesbury. Here the ring was formed, but the police interfered, and a move was made for a iresh spot near Leighton Buzzard, but the authori ties were determined that the battle should not take place, and pursuing the " warlike party,'' the inter esting " mill" was at length abandoned, and the referee ordered an adjournment to town. On the following morning, at about 8 o'clock, the parties proceeded to the London aud Brighton station, where the clerks were suddenly and Bomewhat clamor ously called upon for "returns to Three Bridges." The unusual demand for passes necessarily aroused the suspicion of the officia...

We should mention that a new polka was played on this occasion, and mm the production of Sir Austin T. Turner, the well-known mupic master and the conductor of the B.illar...
THE NATIONAL GRAIN SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 March 1865
THE NATIONAL GRAIN SHOW. The National Show of Grain, Farm and Dairy Produce, &c, under the auspices of the Board of Agriculture, in conjunction with the Ballarat Agri- cultural Society, was held iu the Show-yards, Lake Wendouree, Ballarat, on Wednesday, 15th March. The circumstances under which this conjunction of the funds of the Board of Agriculture with those of the local society was made for the purpose of elicit- ing the fullest competition in grain, have already met with all necessary detail, and it is only requisite for us now to state that Wednesday's show was commensurate to the pretensions that had been formed of it. The importance of the occasion had drawn to it an unusual amount of interest, though it must be admitted that other public celebrations going on in town contributed greatly to deprive the show of the concourse of visitors usual on such occasions. If, however, there was on absence of mere onlookers, there was an abundance of professed agriculturists, wh...

ENGLISH COMMERCIAL. Tho Home News of tho 201U January, says: Tho period of tension in tho money market which lias moro or less prevailed throughout tho past year is at least drawing to a close. Oil tho 12th of January tho bank rato was lowered to 5.J per cent., and there aro almost positive indications of a further reduc tion within a short interval. However gloomy tho commercial retrospect may therefore be, tho futuro appears hopeful. It is true that our foreign trado is still suflering from tho exceptional measures which the bank directors, through the strin gent operation of their charter, were bound to take for their own protection, but in tho course of a month or two a revival may be expected. Our home trado is in a satisfactory position, and, with thoassuranco that pe-ice w^ll bo maintained in Europe, wo have every reason to countupon a good business for the new year. Tho stock markets continuo dull, and thero aro many complaints of tho absence of general business. From the Ti...
