WEEKLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. Wednesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 March 1865

WEEKLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. Wednesday Evening. The agricultural community of this district so recently stirred into more than usual activity by the National Grain Show has gradually relapsed into that condition of comparative quiet which generally characterise farming pursuits about this season of the year. Ploughing is now going on apace, the recent rainfall having sufficiently moistened the ground to enable it to be prosecuted all over the previously cultivated lands with comparative vigor, the bulk of the grain shows are also over, and in a very short time now the farmerB will have fairly settled down to their autumnal labors. The markets are fairly supplied with produce, and prices remain firm, and with an upward tendency in one or two classes of grain. We may again draw attention to the National Show ot Grain and Dairy Produce held on the 15th instant, bo briefly alluded to in our last weekly report, and state that this conjunction of the funds of the Board of Agriculture with ...

NEW ZEALAND. THE NEW GOLD FIELD AT OKITIKI RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 March 1865

NEW ZEALAND. THE NEW GOLD FIELD AT OKITIKI RIVEB. By the Claud Hamilton we have received a de i BCription of the Okitiki field, and the doings thereon. Okitiki is situated on the west coast of the middle island of New Zealand, on the same parallel of lati tude as Canterbury. The river on ?which the dig gings are situated is a stream about twice the size of the Yarra, running rapid and clear, and of con siderable depth. It has the disadvantage of being a bar river, on which a tremendous surf breaks with westerly wind3. With easterly winds it is practica ble for boats and small craft. The two steamers Wallabi and Nelson, now running between the river and Nelson, succeed at all times in entering, but they have to take the bar at high water. The bar has eleven feet at full and change, and seven at neap tides. High water, full and change, at eleven a.m. The mouth of the river is about nine mile3 from tlie great New Zealand Alps, which rise almost perpen dicularly to a height of 8000 feet...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 March 1865

NEWS AND NOTES. The election of a councillor for the borough of Ballarat in the room of Mr Robert Dunn, retired, took place at the Town Hall on Wednesday, the Mayor presiding. There were two candidates, Mr D. .Robertson and Mr J. S. Reeves, both of whom hired cars, and employed the usual means in vogue at contested elections for carrying the day. But there was no great excitement. The business of the Corner was not affected, but flowed on as briskly as if no election was going forward, for there was no " great question" at issue, nor any " cry" got up to excite impressionable burgesses to neglect their or dinary pursuits for the business of electioneering. The particular friends of each candidate, of course, were on the Bpot, but an air of quiet prevailed for the most part, and voters went to the poll and about their business as if no very great event was being transacted. There were no incidents of a specially noteworthy character during the day. As is usually the case, several vot...

AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 24 March 1865

AGRICULTURAL. To othera than colonial readers the bulk of the agricultural intelligence for the month comprises little of any consequence, save perhaps the accounts of a few of the leading grain shows which have recently taken place in several parts of the district. At the time of the departure of the last mail harvest ing operations were concluded, and now ploughing has been commenced with vigor all over the culti vated lands, the recent heavy rainfall with which we have been favored having rendered this primary operation a matter of easier accomplishment than before, when the ground was parched up by the long summer drought. The prices at present ruling for several classes of produce have given a slight im petus to farming, and although many of our old district farmers who have, it may fairly be supposed, "grown fat out of the sap of the land," are selling off their holdings for the purpose of investing their capital in pastoral specu lations, there is yet a fair prospect to the e...

DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 24TII MARCH, 18G5. NEWS AMD NUTES. WE publish to-day our monthly summary of intel ligence ior transmission by the outgoing msil to Europe. The summary will be found in the supple ment to this day's issue. We hold over our leading article and some other matter in conscquence of the space occupied by the summary. The unhappy man Winch who tried to strangle himself on Sunday last, while in gaol on a chargc of fraudulent insolvency, was yesterday brought up at the District Court and discharged, both on that accusation and on the new one of attempted suicide. The first case was dismissed, as not made out, and in the latter the man was handed over to the care of his wife and brother. He appeared to be unfit to be alone, and it is doubtful if he has been judiciously liberated. A public meeting was held at the Bull and Mouth Hotel, Clunes, on Tuesday evening, for tbe purpose of establishing a company for tbe erection of a pub lic hall. Sir W. Appleby occupied the chair,...

SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 24 March 1865

SOCIAL. Among tne most noticeable events of the month have been the dreadful day of hot wind with bush fires which befel the whole colony ou Monday, 27th February, and the welcome cessation to the long drought by the downfall of copious showers of rain on and after Monday, 13th March. To gardeners, dairymen, miners, farmers, and almost all classes of people, the latter change of weather has been re garded as a great boon after so long and trying a deprivation of moisture. The hot .* ind and Are of Monday,27thFebruary, was perhaps notsevererthan, if so severe, as that of the memorable Black Thurs day, but it was infinitely more disastrous in its con sequences, and well deserves tlia titlo which has already been applied to it-Black Monday. The disaster overspread every part of the colony where there was dried grass or forest to be ignited by acci dent or carelessness, or houses and farm property to be involved in the ruin. To attempt a cata logue of the properties destroyed, even in t...

MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 24 March 1865

MINING. PJEW VENIOKES.-Ihe principal feature in tne mining incidents of the month is the enormous crowd of new ventures that have been thrown upon the market. All sorts of places and all sorts of probabilities have been ransacked to supply. the bases of new projects, and so many prospectuses have been printed that, like precedents in law, a study of some perseverance is necessary to master the tremendous totality. Up to the present time the process has gone on with accelerating rapidity, and though there appears to be a slight declension in the vivacity -with which the public accepted whatever was submitted to its capacity for specula tion, there is hardly any appreciable decrease yet in the supply of new schemes. Both alluvial and quartz grounds have been prospectused, deep rock leads and shallow grounds being similarly treated, and this district alone has not sufficed for the sport. In several other districts localities have been found out by the prospectusers, and our market has ...

SUMMARY FOR EUROPE. POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 24 March 1865

SUMMAEY FOE . EUROPE. POLITICAL. THE progress of events in this new country is certainly very rapid, and the changes are as surprising as could be desired by the most ardent seeker for political novelties. Our endeavors to settle down. into a syBtem of government under which we shall be free from the danger of constant crises appear only to send us farther from the goal we seek. By our inexperience, or by our recklessness, the days of peace and quietness are made more distant, and we still find the setting in motion of the cumbersome machinery of our legislature not only absorbing much of the strength that should have been applied to our improvement, but there is also, apparently, a strange fatality which impels ministers to rush towards their own dishonor and their own ultimate destruction. Leaving all ex amples, outside of the month concerning the events of which we write, we have to make tho startling announcement that the Ministry has decided to send up the new tariff to the Leg...
