TO "AN UNFORTUNATE MINER." (Per favor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 29 July 1856

I TO "AN UNFORTUNATE MINER." I I -. __(Per favor of the Star.) ! Sir,-I have a most thorough hatred of " gold lace and red glove" misrule, as well as yourself, and at the same time a most perfect contempt for blue and red shirt tyranny. I have seen but too much of both, not only on Ballarat but elsewhere. j With your permission, Mr Editor, I wfll ata future time take up the question of " official obstructiveness " as alleged to have been in operation at the Frenchman's .Lead, but before doing so I would beg to ask thc following ques tions, through your favori of " An Unfortunate Miner." \ 1. Did Mr Warden Cogdon offer any official obstructiveness " to the working of the New Regulations on Terrible or Green TKlla Lead ? 'i. Was there no " obstructiveness " on the part of auy miners on Frenchman's which hin dered Mr Cogdon from making the desired announcement ? 3. Has not the conduct of Mr Surveyor Wall been as censurable as that of Mr Warden Cog don, though the former genüeman's proc...

In so far as we remember, this ls the first, and we hope it will be the last, threatening notice ever seen on Ballarat.

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 29 July 1856

I YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSO j CIATION. [ (To the Editor of the Star.) \ ! Sin,-l was pleased to read the letter of j a correspondent, enquiring whether it is j not possible to form a Young Men's Chris- ' lian Association on Ballarat i and also ask ing whether in the event of such an associa tion being formed, it would be too much to expect the various clergymen to give a lec ture occasionally. As the correspondent did not give his name, I shall be obliged if through your columns you will inform him that as an individual I shall be most happy to render every assistance in my power to accomplish an object so desir able. Such an association has jost been formed at Beechworth. The inaugural meeting was held last month, when the Rev. J. C. Symons, President of the Association, de livered a lecture on " The history and ad vantages of Yoting Men's Associations " If then, they have succeeded at Beechworth, there is encouragement for the young men to try at Ballarat.

MELBOURNE WHOLESALE PRICES CUttlth> 1'. Argus Office, Saturday Evening. There has been UteroHy norning aomg in the import market during the week, but the tone of the market generally is firm. The present rush to the Sydney Gold-fields has caused a few inquiries for some descrip tions of hardware and of provisions, and it is felt that should it continue it will, whether a successful rush or not, effect some influence in maintaining prices here. Drays have been offering more freely for the gold-fields trade.and some engagements have t-ken place at lower rates. There have been only three arrivals from foreign ports,-the Valiant and Plumstead from Mauritius, with sugar; and the Kenan Hasselaar from Hong Kong, cia Svdney, with a miscellaneous cargo, chitfiy belong ing to the Chinese.

THE GOVERNMENT QUARRIES ON THE TOWNSHIP. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 29 July 1856

THE GOVERNMENT QUARRIES ON j THE TOWNSHIP. ! I {To the Editor of the Star.) \ oin,-jrermii me, mrouga your columns, to j complain of the careless manner in which the Quarries are now bein» worked, and the cool indifference manifested by the Municipal I Council to my repeated remonstrances. ' My dwelling-house is situate very near to the said quarries, and I and my wife are j frequently in considerable danger from the ' large blocks of stone which fly about in all I directions buring the blasting : often falling I upon the roof of my cottage-indeed, my wife I had a very narrow escape the other day in con sequence of a large stone falling within a few feet of where she stood. I have represented these facts to the Muni cipal Council, who treated the matter very coolly, and with an indifference which I think discreditable to any body of men undertaking public duties. I do not, Mr Editor, wish it to be understood that I find fault with the Council for raising stones for the desirable obj...

MONTEZUMA THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 29 July 1856

MONTEZUMA THEATRE. Although Dr Johnson's opinion was never of less worth than when he laid his heavy hands on Shakspeare, he was right for once in regarding, with all the burly admiration he was capable of, the scene in which Ka therine "unqueen'd" and dying, is pictured as passing her bist hours at Kimbolton Castle. If it were possible to praise anything, without in some sort depreciating something else, we should say that this scene, enacted by Miss Goddard, struck us as the most delicately finished piece of work that an author could conceive, or an artiste quicken into life Shakspeare has given us many a death bed scene-piarima mortis imago -- " but never aught like this." In King John's he has shown us a man clung," and wholly possessed in his hist moments, by the sharp est physical pain that flesh is heir to. Is Cardinal Beaufort's he has pourtrayed, ir half a dozen lines, a poor wretch rackec and torn with remorse,-offering a thou sand pounds to undo a single one of hil acts,-...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 29 July 1856

SAXB OF FRUIT THEES.-On Thursday last Mr Bowes offered for sale 96 dozen fruit j trees, including vines, &c, in lots of a dozen each. The average price obtained was 30s per dozen. The various lots were bought up instantly on their being put up, by residents of the neighborhood. Since the sale there have been numerous inquiries for the same articles. So great is the de mand for them among our fanners that a few more lots would meet with speedy sale at good prices. It is gratifying to find that our agricultural friends are bestirring them selves in a matter which has hitherto been strangely neglected. SCXKV GULLY.-This quarter is now the scene of a rush of growing importance ; as the lead progresses it is reported as improving, great hopes are entertained of it by the time that it is of the average depth of our other leads. SLY GEOG STATISTICS.-Computing mattera at a very moderate average, we find that then are, say, five hundred premises on Bal larat, ot good, bad, or indiffe...

THE STAR. TUESDAY, 29th JULY, 1856. THE COMÍNG ELECTIONS. As the coming election is nearing us fast, it behoves every man to rouse himself to interest and action in rela tion to an event so big with importance, as regards the present and the future of the inhabitants of this colony. Every elector should feel that bis franchise is not only a privilege or right, but a responsibility. In a sense he may use the words of the French king with but a small alteration, and instead of "L'Etat, c'est moi," be may exclaim, " The future, it is I." Undoubtedly the future-the im ¡ mediate future which, to every one oí us, is not an abstraction, a far off thing about which the fancy may be pennit I ted to exercise itself in harmless gam bois,-but a swift-coming, stern, inevit able verity -, this future, this pending present, so to speak, will, politically and socially, take its form and shap< in a large measure from the way ii which the electoral franchise shall bi used by us individuall...

POLICE COURT. Saturday, 26th July. (Before W. Turner, Esq., S.M.) Catherine Dowling was charged with be- ing drunk. She pleaded as an excuse that her husband had not treated her well. his Worship said that getting drunk was not the way to make her husband treat her better. It was a pity to see a young woman like the accused being brought up for drunkenness. He should discharge her this time, and trusted she would not repeat the offence. Patrick Kenny was brought up on a charge of attempting to break into the pre- mises of Madame Clementina, on Bakery Hill. The prosecutrix did not appear; neither did it seem that the accused had any felonious intent, He was therefore dis- charged. The Court then adjourned until 10 o'clock on Monday morning.
