THE PEOPLE'S LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 January 1857

THE PEOPLE'S LEAGUE. A public meeting was called on Wednesday, at the Black Lead, by the committee of the | People's League. Mr Montgomery, the. chairman of the Local Committee, took the chair, and briefly stated the objecte of the meeting. In answer to a charge of neglect of duty, he ¡stated .that the apparent neglect on the part 'of the com mittee of the Black Lead had arisen from Mr Nichols failing to supply them with'memorial forms, or cards of membership according to promise. He (the chairman) had despatched several messages lo tbatindividiisl, and some sheets of-blank paper only was ' all that liad been received. He bad subsequeriÜy;yisited Ballarat for 6»e purpose of obtaming the re quisite papers, but after calling at various places, including Mr Nichols' private tent, and the office of the League, he could obtain neither the papers he was in quest of nor any information on the subject.

GOLDEN POINT LEAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 January 1857

GOLDEN" POINT LEAD. We give below the report of that part of the ' proceedings of the Central Committee on Tues day evening,-which referred to the miner named Parkin, and which we did not include in our report of the business as published in our issue of yesterday. . Mr Coleman then brought forward tile case of the assault by Mr.' Parkin upon the sur veyor of the lead, Mr, Smith. Whatever may have been the conduct of the surveyor, nothing cc old justify the brutal assault in question. Such things might be allowed to take place among savages, but not among civilised people. They were not to be exposed to assaults and disturbances on account of things that had tran spired in committee. He had also been charged by Mr. Parkin with unfair behavior in the -committee, of which there could be no proof given because it was unfounded. He would therefore move " That Mr. Parkin's name be Strock off the list of committee men." Mr Chidlow seconded the resolution. Mr Parkin said his actions in the...

SAVINGS' BANKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 January 1857

SAVINGS' BANKS. The returns of Savings' Banks have long been recognised as affording the most reliable data for forming a correct estímate of the condition of the masses. We have accord ingly examined, with no small interest, the statements and returns for the year ending 30th June last, recently presented by Mr. Sladen to the House of Assembly, and by that body ordered to be printed, and we now submit to our readers a summary of their contents, which are too voluminous to be copied in our columns.

PROCEEDINGS IN PARLIAMENT. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. Tuesday, 20th January. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 January 1857

PROCEEDINGS IN PARLIAMENT. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. Tuesday, 20th January. The following business was omitted in our Telegraphic report : HAXLWATS. Captain Clarke, in moving the resolutions respecting Eailways in the colony, said: If they admitted that railways were neces sary, the question would arise whether the time had arrived when they should be con structed. Looking at other portions of the world, and comparing the success which had attended works which had been undertaken by private companies and those winch had been undertaken by the State, the comparison was very strongly in favor of those which had been undertaken by the State. Taking the cost of Macadamised roads, he found from re tu ns which were laid ou the table of the Hon that one line of 79 miles of Macadam ise i road had cost the country £880,538, or £11,598 per mile. The maintenance of that road had cost from £700 to £1000 per mile, and the revenue derived from it had only been £44,241. Even with this enormous sum exp...

MONTEZUMA THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 January 1857

MONTEZUMA THEATRE. j When an actor publicly claims to take I rank among the men of genius who have adorned Iiis profession, he throws down the ! gauntlet and challenges criticism, upon the truth and candor of which his reputation must ultimately stand or fall. In such cases, the public and the Press have less hesitation to express freely their opinions upon the real merits of the actor, than in the case of those, who with becoming modesty, are satisfied with a less prominent position, and are quietly working their way upward to fame and fortune. To the latter, we extend a kindly hand ; ¿nd so long as the desire of improvement ie manifested, encouragement rather than censure, falls to their lot. Not so, .however, with those who by their pre tensions, virtually proclaim themselves to be in -an impregnable position ; with such we are free to deal aa their real merits de mand ; and decide apon theraonly according to recognised canons, and as our best judg ment dictates. If the fame they...

MAIN-ROAD ALLOTMENTS VALUATION. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 January 1857

' We have only marked out the allotments belonging to those who have favored us with instructions to do so, and in accordance with the Government survey.

The Star. DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 23RD JANUARY, 1857. THE ANNUAL EXODUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 January 1857

The Star DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 23rd JANUARY, 1857.   THE ANNUAL EXODUS.   THE Ballarat miners are at present engaged in their annual migration. The usual summer reports of new and rich gold-fields have at length induced the hangers-on to try their luck in some one or other of the up- country districts. Those who know not the habits of the Ballarat miners, begin to fear that they have gone never to return ; and that, in con- sequence, our trade will be ruined, our escorts decrease, and general dis- aster follow. We have no such fears we confess : we know that trade is dull at present, where is it brisk just now in the Colony? We know also, that the people are leaving in hundreds for Dunolly, or per- haps the distant Ovens, but was it ever otherwise during any summer since Ballarat was discovered? and yet we have gone on enlarging our sphere of operations, and becoming of more importance as a community year by year till we are acknowledged, by all impartial ju...

GEELONG. (From our own Correspondent.) January 23rd. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 24 January 1857

GEELONG. (From our oten Gor respondent J I January 23rd. lté supply of water to Weelong seems to i be in a fair way to be adjourned sine die, at least so far as the Government is con cerned. Notwithstanding £200,00* has been long since voted for the purpose, and a Commission appointed, nothing very de finite has resulted. It would appear, by a report prepared by the chairman of the Commission, that the very severe remarks of Captain Pasley in the House, in refer ence to the Commission, are most uncalled for and unjust; inasmuch as the Govern ment neglected to issue instructions suffi ciently definite to guide the Board, besides treating with a contemptuous silence a number of important communications, and thus effectually retarding the operations of the Commission. If local commissioners are to be treated in this style by Govern ment officials, no public-spirited men will be found to undertake such onerous duties. The Board at its last meeting passed unani mously a long resolution v...

BALLARAT versus BENDIGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 24 January 1857

BALLARAT versus BENDIGO. WE confess to a strong feeling of pity for our BenJigo friends , their former glories contrat so strikingly with their present reduced condition, that we should be deficient in the better feel ings of our nature were .we to refuse to extend to them our sympathy. The vanity they exhibited in the days of their prosperity, only calls now for greater forbearance on our part ; as the weakness of character, which prompted display, when, like prodigals, they were spending their patrimony as soon as they came into possession, is presumptive evidence, that they are ill-fitted to bear up against the ad versity that has now overtaken them. The usual remedy in such a case, is to dwell on the glories bf the past, and ignore, if possible, the miseries of-the present ; and, as our readers would o' serve by an extract fi om the Bendigo Advertiser, in our yesterday's issue j th i 3 is exactly the course that our w uld-be rivals are pursuing.
