A LETTER FROM PARIS. PARIS, 27th January, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 18 March 1865

A LETTER FROM PARIS. CFrom our own Correspondent.J PARIS, 27th January, 1865. The Encyclical baa made a great noiae ever since its first appearance. When the journals bad published it, commented on it, attacked it and defended it, and shown all that there was odiously retrograde in this manifesto of the Pope against modern ciyilisatioD, people exported to hear in the churches the bishops defending the Episcopal letter. The prelates had already prepared their documents, when a circular from the Minister of Justice reminded the bishops that no apostolical letter or bull could bo published in Trance without the authorisation of the Council of State, and some days after an imperial decree, rendered in conformity with the opinion of the Council of State, prohibited the first part of the Encyclical and the syllabus or iiat of 80 errors, con demned by the Pope. This blow was very hard on " the episcopacy, as it closed their mouths, after all the preBS had spoken, and prevented the prelates...

SUNDAY WORK IN THE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 18 March 1865

SUNDAY WORK IN THE MINES. SIR,-While perusing your issue of the 25th February, we discovered a letter written by a work ing m'mer of Little Bc.ndigo, charging the employers of Ballarat with the manifestation of a tyrannical spirit over the working class. Wc should havo passed it unnoticed, but there is so much talk about it that we feel compelled to writo in order to defend ourselves. Wherever one goes he may hear nu ex clamation to this effect Did you seethe letter in the Star about Sunday working in the mines?'' Such being the case, we fear the result, hence our request that you will insert this, in defence of our company, which lias been so ridiculously attacked by the " Working Miner." We beg permission, Sir, to state that we have no sympathy with the same, in their complaints. Let shopkeepers and their helps, lawyers' clerks, bankers' clerks, and all other clerks, and any one else, even those at the corner claim their half holiday and have it, but work ing miners should not dre...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. MINING TITLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 18 March 1865

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. MINING TITLES. Slit,-Of all the various questions of the present day which affect the interests of the whole commu nity of this colony, there is nono taken BO little notice of as those affecting the mining interest. It is true that every district is supposed to be repre sented by a something called a mining board, but to what good purpose they have exercised their expe rience or abilities I have yet to learn. To these mining boards and, previous to their existence, the local courts were entrusted the forming of our mining bylaws ; but I fear the fruits of their labor have brought but very little credit to themselves or the peopla they represent. The question of mining titles is a matter of more serious importance to this district especially, than most persons seem to bo aware of. U is of all other questions " the one question " that should have received the most careful study and consideration of the miners and their representatives; but, on the contrary, it i...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, 17th March. The life-boat sent to the wreck of the Agnes re covered the body of the captain. He was found lashed to a plank inside the reef. The papers give great praise to Ormrod and Co., for sending the Penola without a guarantee, and contrast their eon duct with that of others on a past occasion. Wheat is drooping.

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. SATURDAY, 18th MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 18 March 1865

DAILY ISSUE. SATURDAY, 18tu MARCH, 1865. We may now fairly congratulate the country upon the fact of a land law being; passed which is likely to be generally acceptable, and, let us hope, beneficial; whilst we may also congratulate tbe Legislative Council upon the wise moderation which it has dis played, albeit somewhat late in season. The Council seems to have at last become aware of the fact that it has duties as well as privileges. Perhaps the agitation now going on, both as to the reform of the Council and ' its present powers, has led its members to take a wider view of their functions than they had previously ventured upon, and a de parture from the beaten path has shown them, that firmness, to be worth anything to the country and to win respect, must be closely allied to a wise moderation. The two committees appointed to confer on the dis puted points in the Land Act Amendment Bill, when they did agree, agreed wonder fully. Tbe committee of the Council seems to have been yiel...

IMPORTANT DISCOVERY IN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 18 March 1865

IMPORTANT DISCOVERY IN AGRICULTURE. Mr Boutin, an agriculturist, and formerly a che mist at Libourne, in the department of the Gironde, France, who lor many years past has devoted liim Bell to Uie discovery of a manure which possessed the muchvriched-for qualities o£ increasing the pro duce of seeds SOWD, end at the same time of diminish ing the cost at present indispeusible to all who wish for abundant returns, claim? to have succeeded in hie researches, and the statements lie makes are borne out by testimony which places the value o 1 the discovery beyond all doubt. An able article by M. Leon Plee, in a recent number of the Sieclc highly eulogises the process, which simply consists of the previous preparation of seeds by steeping them in a certain liquid, which imparts an extraordinary revivifying lorce and enables them to contend successfully against all the evil influences to which they are subjected after being committed to the earth. M. Boutin has met with his reward in seeing...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 18 March 1865

NEWS AND NOTES. The weather on Friday was like a bit of winter in autumn. Cold breezes from the southward, with showers of hail and rain, made overcoats agreeable additions to the usual costume, and gave the firet sign we have yet hid of the approach of the winter season. . A man named Doolau was killed ia the claim of the Wombat Creek Company on Thursday. The deceased was in the blind shaft, and while he was looking up the shaft a piece of quartz fell down and struck him on the forehead, causing almost inBtant death. Some time Bince we received a post letter, pur porting to be the autograph of Mr George M'Queen, of Stockyard Hill, wherein the writer took some pains to Bhow that our local correspondent had wilfully misstated Mr M'Queen's yield of Tartarian oats at 40 bushels per acre, instead of less than 20 bushels. Taking the letter to be actually a com munication from Mr M'Queen, we made the neces sary alteration in a paragraph. a3 to yields. Wo have since had an interview with M...

LATE MAIL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 18 March 1865

LATE MAIL NEWS. Notes and translations Irom the latest journals supplied from the files of Messrs Greville and Bird: MARSEILLES, 26th January. The Semaphore dt Marseilles has a leading article upon parliamentary reform and non-intervention the two political topics now being discussed in England, and which with reduction of taxation I appear to form the programme for the session which was to commence in the month of February. The Semaphore takes for ita text Mr Bright's speech to the electors of Birmingham, and pronounces entirely in favor of his- sentiments on the suffrage. The writer says that the speech has created a great sen sation throughout France, as containing admirable sentiments on electoral reform, but that his opinions as well as those of Mr Cobden on the subject of non-intervention are not concurred in by the French people. Paul Bethmont, a candidate of the liberal oppo sition, has been returned for the Charente Inferi eure, an electoral district that in the elections f...

The ground between the Excelsior and North Crinoline Company has been sold to speculators at Sale and Wood's Point. Anything on that line of reef is eagerly taken by Wood's Point buyers. Continual complaints are made of the want of a warden, and the absence of the mining surveyor. The Crinoline prospecting machinery is still idle for want of water. The returns for five month's crushing are stated at £12,000. The erection of the Concord machinery is progres ing rapidly. The second boiler, and stamps, are expected immediately. PORTLAND, 17th March. The Aldinga (a.s), bound to Adelaide, put in here this morning for shelter. She had got as far as Cape Northumberland, but the sea was running high. The wind (ahead) was blowing very strong, and as there were twelve horses on deck it was thought safest to put back here.
