LETTER TO THE EDITOR. THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 24 March 1865

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. Sib,-I do certainly think there is a very great want of forethought or utter disregard of conse quences ami public convenience shown as regards the above management. The large hall of the ! above institute has been disengaged for several weeks (except for two nights for balls); and now, on the very eve of the horticultural flower show, the doors and stairs are wet and stinking with fresh paint, which will not only be a great nuisance in counteracting the otherwise beautiful smell of the flowers, but probably spoil ladies' dresses in coming in and out. I certainly think Bome other time might have been chosen to do this painting, however neces sary it may have been to do it. 1 hope, Sir, at the head of your news and notes, you will please caution ladies to guard their wide-spreading dresses against the treacherous naint. Yours, &C, SUCCESS TO HOUTICDLTDRE. The Loyal Learmonth Lodge I.O.O.F., M.U.. has decided on holding a grand d...

CORAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 25 March 1865

CORAL. 1 (From the London Observer.) There are few more striking contrasts than those which are presented in the notion of a coral reef, over which the sea dashes in its fury, dooming to destruction the mighty ship and the eiquisitely carved coral which decorates the daughters of our sea-girt land. In the one case it tells of the most terrible ol the daDgera of Eastern navigators, in the other it suggests one of the most beautiful and graceful forms of ornament-the ono is nature, and the other is nature improved by art. Of late years coral had gradually become more and more recog nised as a material of personal decoration, and the exquisitely-finished gems of Neapolitan coral now stand on a footing of equality with the diamond, the ruby, and the pear!. The choicest description of the coral, that which is of a delicate flesh color, is more than five times the value of gold.
