NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 21 March 1865

NEWS AND NOTES. A little girl named Balderstone, aged one year and eleven months, was drowned on Sunday fore noon in a water bole at the rear of a garden attached to her parent's residence, in Eureka street, Ballarat Bast. The mother left the child (her only one) shortly after eleven o'clock, playing in the garden, and after being absent in the house about ten minutes, missed her altogether. Search was made, but the child was not found; the neighbors houses were enquired at with the same result, and ulti mately n garden rake was procured with which to search the water hole. The hole being about nine feet wide and containing about eight feet of water the mother of the child was unable to search it properly with the rake, and a man named Ham hap pening to pass the spot at the time undertook to do so, and very noon dragged out the child, but life was then quite extinct. The hole, it appears, was not fenced in. An inquest was held on the body on Monday, when, these facts having been dep...

PROTECTION AND FREE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 21 March 1865

PROTECTION AND FREE TRADE Sin,-Tha question of Protection versus Tree Trade, and vice versa, ia ono that, in my liumblo estimation, may be fairly regarded as embracing all the ramifications of political economy, and therefore the multifarious results flowing therefrom can only be clearly perceived by those whose political educa tion enables them to deal with such varieties of com binations as ate involved in either the one or the other side of the question. If this view of the matter be correct, 1 think we may assume, without much injustice to those concerned, that the public writers of the day on these topics are not sufficiently ingenuous with the general or uninitiated bulk of the community, but on the contrary they confino their arguments within ft certain focus of metaphysi cal reasoning, which is perfectly unintelligible to tha masses whom they fain would win to their res pective views, end the merits of these arguments whatever may attach tj them-are lost to the people, becau...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 21 March 1865

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. SIR,-I think a " Constant Visitor1' was hardly right in his views upon the officering of the Me chanics' Institute, however much I may agree with him upon the other grievances to which he alluded. Whatever may Vie the matter in the management of the institute, everybody must admit who knows its working, that there is a good deal of very responsible work lor the secretary to do, and I am of opinion that on the whole he does it well. Of course he i9 not absolute perfection, But then who is ? The librarian is, I believe, curator or housekeeper as well, and all the members know how courteous lie generally is, but a very little reflection would, I suppose, show that there is a wide and important difference between his duties and those belonging to the secretary's office. Even in the general ma nagement of the institute, there seems to me to have been only those mistakes which all institutions are liable to, and which the surveillance of me...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 21 March 1865

MINING INTELLIGENCE. A email business only was done in the share market on Monday. The chief demand was for Premier scrip, in which there were numerous and some heavy transactions. Sailor's Reef shares were in demand, but with few sellers. In Lalla Rookh and Lord Malmsbury there was some activity. Dividend-paying claims command but iittle atten tion, a good proof that the spirit of speculation is still dominant. There arc still new schemes being brought forward, which tend more than ever io glut the market, and to raise doubts as to the vitality of some of them. A few weeks more, and the calls will begin to show which are sound companies, as few persons are ready to admit, that all the ven tures now proposed will be finally carried out. "With this in view, it is the interest of investors tho roughly to acquaint themselves with the ground and the prospects of success of such companies as fall under their notice, and not be led away by a cry of the hour. The following sales are report...
