The Star. DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 20TH JANUARY, 1857. IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 20 January 1857

D&UT ISBVB. TUESDAY, 20iH JANUARY, 1857. IMMIGRATION. THE debate on Thursday evening on the Immigration resolutions sub slitted by Mr Childers is imperfect, and the counter scheme proposed by Mr Foster is alike unsatisfactory ; so far as the Legislature is concerned, we must waif, j for father information. In the mean time it may not be inopportune to ventilate the biibject out of doors, and if possible awaken some response on the part of the colonists themselves. Without population it is not possible for any country to assume a national position. Without a steady and propor tionate increase of its population, a new country cannot satisfactorily or healthily add to its wealth or progress in the development of its resources. Truths so obvious would seem trite and common place in the discussion of a question of such practical importance, if it were not that a large number of those now in the colony argue virtually, by their dissent to every scheme for adding to the population,...

THE EFFECTS OF EMIGRATION ON THE LABOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 21 January 1857

THE EFFECTS OF EMIGRATION ON THE LABOR MARKET. Any one who has watched carefully the nature of the stream of emigration for some years past most nave noticed that the balk of those who leare for the fields of occupation are chiefly the industrious and skilled mechanic men who find that their wages, with all then industry, are insufficient to support _ their ramiTies, owing to the increase of taxation and the higher price' of food. Of the skilled laborers who have left the kingdom in the last two years for "other fields of occupation, the following is an abstract, taking them alpha beticallv : 1854. 1855.

{ BALLARAT HOSPITAL. On Tuesday, we paid a visit to this valuable institution, and. found about 41 patients re ceiving medical treatment, in addition to about SO out patients. We paid a visit to all the male wards in the establishment, and beheld suffering humanity in its various stages of trial and misery. On entering No. 1 ward, which is situated on the ground floor, the first case that par ticularly struck our attention was that of a storekeeper, named Kyle, who, previous to his admission into the hospital, had been cerrying on business at Fiery Creek. It ap peared that some time ago be had met with an accident by falling from a chaise cart, and had so injured the right leg that the bones of the ancle became diseased, and it was necessary to amputate the limb below the knee, which operation was performed ¿orne seven weeks ago by Dr Hobson. Five days after the operation had been performed a secondary hemorrhage set in, when the femoral artery was tied by Dr Hobson. The patient is ...

The premises be- i long to Mr Barrington, and have been in .j occupation for the last three months. The ¡ first building that we entered was the cur- : rier's workshop, where two carriers were : busily at work, three being the number regu- J larly employed. This building was 18 feet wide, 24 feet long, and 10 feet high. The next place that we came to was the drying shed, which is 70 feet ' long by 18 feet wide. Here a considerable quantity of skins ' were drying. Next to this place j the beam shed is situated, where the ? skins are got ready for putting into the pits. , There are fifteen pits altogether, viz. . twelve tan pits, two lime pits, and one water pit.

THE MAIN-ROAD FRONTAGES AND LAND. (To the Editor of the Star.) »sir,-l iiere are many of your subscribers (iacluding myself), -who would feel obliged if you would give your opinion and advice upon the following questions. In the first place, I paid a party £5 for valuation of my property, then, for the same purpose, 20s., j and now I am asked £3> 3s. to finally mark j out and allot my purchased ground. Has ¡ any one a legal right to do this ; and should ] 1 be safe if I paid the surveyors ? or ought j not the Government, of whom I have i bought the land, mark it out for me free of charger Secondly, adjoining my pre mises is an old watercourse, the frontage not purchased, in consequence of the state ment that it was the intention of the Go vernment not to permit buildings to be erected over the watercourses.

NEW MINING BEGULATIONS. (To the Editor of the Star.J faut,-I observed in your issue of Friday I last a copy of the latest Begulations made by the Local Court of Ballarat. Living in a suburban district I am much addicted to prospecting, and I turned to the rules relating to that subject, in order to as certain how much ground I should be' entitled to, in the event of my striking gold in ground hitherto unworked. I find that for the discovery of a new lead 1 coming under Class A (which class includes all the shallow workings) a party of four men are entitled to a length of fifty feet along the supposed tine, and a party of eight men to double that length. As this rule makes no provision for any party consisting of less than four, I suppose we...

The Star. DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 21ST JANUARY, 1857. MINING ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 21 January 1857

ÍT Jj r If nr. j WEDNESDAY, 21ST JANUARY, 1857. MINING ON PRIVATE PRO PERTY. WH lix the petition presented by Mr. Blair from the Clunes miners was or dered to be printed, it was elicited from the Government that " it was their intention to introduce a measure respecting mining on private property during the present session." The : tardiness evinced by the Government iu this matter, highly reprehensible as it it;, still affords no justification for i lie overt acts which have recently been committed. However glaring the wrong-which tlie Government must be held respon sible for, in the alienation of land, which they well knew both publicly and privately, was auriferous, and also by tbt'ir negligence to provide for the equitable settlement of the conflicting claims of the miners and the owners of property-claims daily becoming more urgent and complicated the minors are still not warranted in violating the sanctity of the law, from the due observance of which so much benefit Iras accrue...
