The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 20TH MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 20 March 1865

°-~J DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 20xn MARCH, 18G5. MR THOMAS CORNISH claims the titla of prophet upon raining bylaws, but he admits that the prophetic afflatus was five years in descending upon him. Other five years have now passed, and he not unreasonably a^ks that miners and speculators generally should by this time be, if not as prescient, as able as he to see " the fallacy of the frontage system." Perhaps our correspondent is right in his de mands upon the intelligence of the mining com munity, but even bis own gradual apprehen sion of " the fallacy," during th'e passage of five years, should teach him that there is a wide meaning in the old Scotch proverb " Creep afore ye gang." It is the fate of all great men to be before their time, but even Mr Cornish was not wise till after the event. Mr Baker, the almost historic author or ad vocate of the frontage system, may now not be so very far apart from Mr Cornish in his views upon even " the most palpably absurd clauses in the bylaw that ...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 20 March 1865

NEWS AND NOTES. A desperate attempt at suicide was made in the gaol on Sunday afternoon by a man named Alfred Gcorgo Winch, at present confined there on remand on a charge of fraudulent insolvency. He was con fined in a cell on the ground floor of the western corridor, and on Mr Magee, the governor, going his usual rounds about half-past five o'clock in the afternoon, he discovered Winch in almost a kneeling position under a cupboard in a corner of the cell with a handkerchief, which was attached to the cupboard above, tied round his neck. Owing to the height of the cupboard from the floor not being sufficient to admit of the prisoner's standing under it, he had, after fixing bis handkerchief, lifted up his feet and put himself almost into a kneeling position, so that ho might effect his purpose. The determination of the unfortunate man to put an end to his existence must have been very strong indeed, and, had it not baen for the timely arrival of Mr Magee, there is little doubt but...

DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 21ST MARCH, 18G5. THE public discussion, if discussion it can be called when no popular speaker condescends to discuss, of free trade and protection in this colony, offers the singular spectacle of men rejecting the best testimony for dubious statements or utterly unwarranted assertions. Day after day in open air or crowded hall, the same things are repeated, and no one takes the trouble to prove what is said or sub stantiate what is glibly pronounced. Protec tionist orators are never at a loss for illustra tions, for the simple reason, that they usually invent such as will suit their case, and do not hesitate to risk the most extra vagant absurdities. Not long since there was a great run on France as the model country for working men, then Russia rose into high favor, and finally America was made the envy of and the example to the people of Australia. This kind of reckless assertion was not to be wondered at, because it was usually employed by men who know lit...
