The tank will be about sir feet square, and lined with wood or metal ; and is situated in the pathway immediately in front of the billiard-room, alongside the Star Concert Hall. Thè reservoir will be constructed by forming a dam across the gully at the back, which drains the Penny weight valley, and where there is a stream at all times pf the year. This situation is at once central to' the Main-road, and con tiguous to the engine-house ; which is situ ated at the back of thé premises of Messrs. Bodier and Co.

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. Thursday, 22nd Sanuary, 1857 The .following was omitted in our tele graphic communication : CROWN I ANDS MANAGEMENT. In a Committee of the whole House, . Mr Horne said the touchstone ¡of jthe question ¡was whether leases should or should not be granted of the pastoral lands of the country. That leases had been pro mised there could be no doubt, but they werfe "snrroUnded with certain conditions. The lands had now passed into the hands of the Legislature. He had always con sidered it most impolitic and unjust to those who came after that leases should be granted. He would support compensation -for 4 the sacrifice of those i leases ¿where a righteous claim could be shown ;i that is, where a positive loss could be shown. He .begged to more that the committee con sidered it highly inexpedient to grant leases of public lands for pastoral purposes, and: would Tefuse its assent to any bill which proposed tb grant such leases. A eonversati -n then ensued upon a po'.nt ...

DAILY XSSTJB. SATURDAY, 24TH JANUARY, 1857. RAILWAY SCHEMES. " INFIRM of purpose ! may well be exclaimed-as the characteristic of the Surveyor-General, in the advocacy of Iiis scheme of Railways. Built upon a foundation loose as sand, he has no faith in its being reared as a substan tial superstructure. A fancy in the first instance, ambition, personal neces sity, and the clamors of an interested and selfish faction, have all aided in urging him to shape into reality, a scheme of Railway construction and management, neither fitted for the re quirements, nor adapted to the resources of the country. Gigantic the scheme may be : so were the Mississippi and South Sea Bubbles. Statesman-like it is not ; because it is the distinguish ing feature of statesmanship to adapt itself to time and circumstance, and, from the materials around it to elabo rate a policy, fitted for the necessities of the present, and capable of being en larged and inproved as society advanced Nations and communities...

MINING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 26 January 1857

MIKING NEWS. FRENCHMAN'S LEAD.-The claims on this lead working out appear to shape well to wards a profitable return for the arduous la bor entailed in sinking them. Amalgamated claims 24 to 27, last week, washed out 534 ounces from one machine full of stuffier day, And the dirt taken only from the back reef. Claims 33 to 35 have just got through the third rock, a very hard whinstone, 18 feet in depth, 213 feet down. The total amount of rock through which the miners in this claim have sunk, being ISO feet. - It is to be hop pd they will now be able to work on'smoothly, having yet about 70 feet to sink, the shaft being almost to a certainty the nearest to the gutter of any yet down.

PROCEEDINGS DÎ PARLIAMENT. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. _ Friday, 23rd January. The following was not included in our telegraphic communication : LOCAL C0UBT8. Mr Humffray, in moving the resolutions j standing in his name, for the amendment of the laws relating to the gold fields, (pub lishcd in Friday's issue), said it must be manifest to any one who had paid attention to the gold-fields laws that they were very far from being sufficient to meet the wants of the mining community. The local courts not only deal with mining partnerships, but as nine-tenths of the matters in 'dispute were not of that nature-as to establish a partnership, there must be a community of profit and loss. Great delay was caused in consequence of the Courts not having power to deal with all matters connected with mining, as parties were obliged to appeal to the Supreme Court to obtain writs of man damus, prohibition, &c. He wished the Local Courts . to 'have .power to issue in junctions to attach money ia t...

Dr. Russell doubted the expediency of bor rowing for three years. Mr Knight objected to raising money; on rates. It would be all well if the Road Boards were endowed the same as the Mel bourne Corporation. The Government j should come forward and guarantee pecuni ary aid. Some members doubted whether the banks would advance money on the rates, and it was stated that the Ballarat bank required personal security. . .
