THE GOVERNMENT BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 26 January 1857
THE GOVERNMENT BANK. The Government banking scheme has been tried by the commercial men of Mel- j bourne, and found wanting. The Cham- ' ber of Commerce there appointed a com- j mittee to consider the question, and a re port has been'prepared by Messrs Westgarth and Sichel, which entirely disapproves of thc Government scheme. They say :-1st. Your committee are op posed to the establishment of any Govern-' ment Bank of Issue, as they consider such an "institution neither desirable nor neces sary. In the first instance, the experiment would have to be tr ed, whether a bank of issue could force a circulation, and to hazard the success of such an institution on an uncertain result would, in their opi nion, be extremely unwise. Your com mittee are further opposed to it, because they are of opinion that the expenses of a bank of issue, with its subordinate branches, would exceed considerably any profit to be ! derived from it, and without entering' into the question of how far such a bank...
STEAM THRESHING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 26 January 1857
STEAM THRESHING MACHINE. j Having heard last week of the successful operation of the Steam Threshing Machine, at Mr Miller's farm, we took an opportunity of going on Monday to see it at work on the farm of Mr Blair. This machine has been imported to the order of Messrs Bobinson and Co., and contains all the latest improve ments, both in the engine and in the thresher. It is made by Tuxford and Co., of Boston, Lmcomshire, and is so constructed as to1 be easily removed from farm to farm by. horses. The engine is of six-horse power, weighs about two and a half tons, stands upon wheels, and is fitted with chaña. JUI the working parts are enclosed and protected from dust, and every precaution is adopted to guard against fire. When the furnace door is shut, the engine may be almost buried in straw without "risk. The ashes fall into a pan of water, and there is no possibility of sparks issuing from the top-of the fannel. Besides its being spe cially constructed to avoid any danger from fir...

THE ARGUS AND METROPOLITAN ACCURACY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 27 January 1857
THE ARGUS AND METROPOLI TAN ACCURACY. It has been usual to accord to the "Summaries for England," published in the Argus, a large amount of atten tion both in the Colony and in the Mother Country, asa generally authentic statement of tacts and figures in con nection with its resources, progress, and position. We were greatly sur prised, therefore, to find in the Sum mary for the Oneida an error in the Gold Escort Returns, in reference to the Ballarat district, which seems something more than the result of mere care lessness. Unrler the head of Ballarat Escort Returns, in the Tabular State ment, headed, Ballarat, Creswick, and Fiery Creeks, the amount tabulated, is calculated to mislead the public, not only from the unusual course adopted dff including in the returns Fiery Creek, the gold from which field ? ts . invariably forwarded . via Maryborough. - And included in ¿he returns froiiithat place and Dunolly, but also from the inaccurate'.character of the return as a whole,--For ins...

LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 27 January 1857
I LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE. | London, Thursday, 13th November. A favorable impression being produced this morning by the assurance that our relations with France were restored to a friendly footing, English Funds opened with renewed buoyancy at a moderate advance. Consols reached 93, and were steady till midday, when the increase to 7 per cent, in the Bank minimum rate was announced, when a rapid fall of £ per cent, oc curred, jfrow which there. was no recovery. Thc chief feature in Bail ways was a fall of 3 per cent, in Great Northern Stocks, caused by reported frauds, implicating three of the com pany's officials and involving a large amount. En .other stocks the' tone was good ,in earlier hours, but later there was a serious- fall. Foreign generally quiet. Miscellaneous stock showed a drooping tendency.
