The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 22ND MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 22 March 1865

DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 22ND MARCH, 1865. THE Ag* has made a discovery in the inter ests of protection, which may serve as an excellent illustration, not only of the method of argument usually employed, but of the strange vitality of most evident errors. The discovery of our contemporary consists in the fact that we send yearly to the people of Mauritius half a million of money for sugar . consumed by us, and that the greater portion is actually paid in current coin of the realm. The dreadful fact we give in the very words in which it is announced, which are as follow: - " We do not hesitate to proclaim it as a startling and discreditable fact that to a foreign producer, whom we benefit annually to the tune of half a million sterling, who produces or manufactures nothing except the insular staple for home use or consumption, wo can offer nothing save coin in interchange for commodities imported, barring a few in significant products; the only items of im portance being flour and mes...

SUNDAY WORK IN THE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 22 March 1865

SUNDAY WORK IN THE MINES. Sir,-Allow me to observe that " Share, scrip, and dividend" is only a fit object for the Yarra Bend. A " Working Miner," who also writes con demning Sunday work in the mines, evidently knows nothing of what he writes. The largest employers of labor in the mines on Ballarat do not make it compulsory for any of the men to come in to work on Sunday. If there happens, which nearly always is the case, to be some necessary work laid out for Sunday, such as repairing the engine, puddling the shaft dry, shifting ropes, refitting puddling machines, or shaft work of any sort,-work which the com panies cannot do on a week day without throwing a great many men out of employment for the time,-as these works require lew hands, do you not think that the companies act well by employing men willing to do it, and also paying them 10a per eight hours' shift for it ? I have worked for five years at one large claim, and have always been willing to work when I have seen the nece...

THE WATER COMMISSION AND THE COUNCILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 22 March 1865

THE YYATEK COMMISSION AND THE COUNCILS. Sin,-The scene at the meeting of the Water Com mision, as reported in your paper to-day, is charac teristic of the actors as well as illustrative of the business-aptitude and the deportment that is un happily ever acd anon recurring wherever those to whom the chapter of accidents has given prominence meet (or the discharge of public business in this colony. It was nut a little amusing to read of the "affected" indignation of some councillors when charged with misappropriation of lunds. Did these virtuously iodignant councillors forget the attempt to reimburee a couucillor out of the funds of the com mission for an adverse verdict ia the County Court for injuries caused by his awkwardneJS in handling the hose when the mains were being tested? The commission repudiated the claim, as in duty bound, but only by one vote. But no sooner do the Eastern Councillors get into cumniittce than they clandestinely vote a cheque for £18 odd for this pur pose...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. CAB FARES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 22 March 1865

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. - CAB FARES. Sin,-Several notices have lately appeared in your journal calling upon the Council to interfere and regulate the scale of charges for the hire of cabs, and I really think it high time something was done to prevent what I may certainly call downright extortion. Hoving occasion to send a parcel by the4.30 p.m. train to Melbourne to-day, a friend and myself got into a ctb opposite the post office, and were driven to the railway station, occupying three minutes. On getting there my friend tendered cabby a shilling, but he demanded two, which my friend was weak enough to give him. I told cabby that I considered him a thief, and that were 1 pay ing him he should not get it. He replied, with a laugh, that he would soon show me that; but being Sunday 1 refrained from further action. Trusting that we shall soon be protected from all such ama tenr highwaymen, I am, &c., 19th March. J. H.. D.

MORGAN'S COUNTRY. Tho Pastoral limes says:-" We have received tlio following letter from a gentleman well uble to describe the state of society in the murderer's haunts;-I have just ridden over 150 miles through Morgan's country, and MB confession, last speech, and dying words seem as far distant as ever.

Tlio fear of Morgan is greater than I expected to find it. Every station has its spies, hut to say that the feel ing is general in favor of the ruffian 19 quite absurd. To utter a sentiment adverse to him is sure to reach his ears, and the most independent would not dare to do so if even a suspected confederate were not pre sent.
