AMERICA. 14th March, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 17 March 1865
AMERICA. (From a Correspondent.') 14th March, 1865. The State of Virginia, which I had now entered, was, previoui to the Kevolutioo, by far the most populous and powerful of the provinces or colonies, as they were then termed, and for many years after the Declaration of Independence, it Etill retained the same prominent position among the States of the Union. In area it is the first among the Atlantic States, having a surface of 61,352 square miles, thus being a little larger than England und Wales. In 1SG0, the population was 1,596,318, of whom 1,105,453 were free and 490,865 were slaves. Both physically and morally, Virginia is well entitled to take a lead ing position among the states of the late union. Massachusetts, perhaps excepted, no state took a more prominent part in the great struggle for inde pendence, and none contributed more to its success ful termination. Though in point of industrial development, and in the display of the more common features of intellectual power a...
WEEKLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 17 March 1865
WEEKLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. Thursday Evening. About one half of the autumn shows have now been held, and with very varying success. At Geelong, the exhibits in grain were few in number, although in some eases they ranked high in quality, to appearance. Oats did not display anything very remarkable, but the barley was very fine indeed, as ?were the peas. The roots and garden produce were not remarkable for excellence, but this was attri buted to the drought, and this will also account for the very meagre show of dairy produce. In hamB and bacons, Mr Thomas Bridget, of Ballarat, gained the first prize in each. In preserved fruits there were only three or four eshibits, but the quality of the articles was excellent, some preserved apples, by Mr Adcock, being universally admired, while some bottled fruit and jams commanded nearly as much attention. A sample of ripe and a sample of pre pared flax were Ehown by Mr Craig of Moolap, and took a prize. At Bacchus Marsh Show it was very genera...

THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA NEW YORK, 10th JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 17 March 1865
_ THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA (From the Correspondent of tho 3fW. \ NEW YOIUV, 10th JJIUURTRV. Congress is busying itseli with the discussion of the abolition of slavery, by legal amendment of the Constitution, thereby confessing, what nil the world, except the lunatics of iibolitioii, ki.ew perfectly well, that Mr Lincoln's proclamations and edicts to that effect were nugatory and invalid, and, unsupported by force ofnrms, of no more value than wuste paper. But the deliberations of Congress to this end excite but little interest. The all hut certainty that the South will arm and Iree its able-lndied slaves, and the possibility, or at lea3t the chance, that the European powers will bo thereby induced to ree.og- ' niso the Confederacy, occupies the attention ol ln-.n of all parties. Those who know the Souih best believe most implicitly that both people and leaders are willing, if not anxious, to make the experiment. Those who know little or nothing of the South, and who think that the U...

DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 17m MARCH, 1865. THE Great Britain has just sailed from these shores with the Victorian contingent for the Dublin International Exhibition which will afford another proof to our European friends what rapid advances we are making in the domestic production of the elegancies as well as the necessaries of life. The notice given by the commissioners has haen unrea sonably short, but our producers and manu facturers as anxious for the credit of the colony as desirous of availing themselves of the advantages offered, set to the task with a good will and, a collection has been formed which for variety and excellence could scarcely have been surpassed even had move time been allowed, Reviewing the progress of the arts and manufactures in Victoria during the last fifteen years, it is ever noticeable that none ol them was called into existence or even stimu lated, by the bounties and rewards offered, though no doubt the manufacturers were always willing to compete for pri...
