THE AMERICAN CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 27 January 1857
I THE AMERICAN.GHABACTEE. ... I At the meeting ot the Historic Society, nt liverpool, on Thursday, Dr. Hume in his paper on "The relation between the National Progress of the United S' ates and the Capital and°Labor pf Europeans,", remarked upon thc effect produced on American "society by the ex tensive and important contribution of immi grants. To these he attributed, in a great de gree, ¿he accomplishment of most'of the heavy works, such as excavations of magnitude, the climate of Amerioa- being of an enervating .-cha racter. The nat oral-born American, though possessed of great mental energies, is neverthe less comparatively unendowed with such phy- &lt; steal po ivers as to enable him to compete in the execution of works whick require great personal strength and active bodily exertion.

The Star. DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 27TH JANUARY, 1857. THE CHINESE [?] [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 27 January 1857
&lt;$!)? Itar. DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 27TH JANUARY, 1857. THE breelong Advertiser in alluding to our remarks on this question, states that we omitted to mention one very great objection to the presence of the Chinese in this Colony, viz. : that \ they bring no females with them. ¡ Our contemporary also gallantly says that " if the Chinese brought their wives with them our opposition to their coming here would be very much lessened." That numbers are opposed to the Chinese on this account we freely admit ; and we know of no better way of disposing of this argu j ment than by opposing to it the j opinion held by about aa equal num ber,-that the Chinese should not be allowed to come here for the purpose of settlement, and that as soon as they show the slightest disposition to do so, and for that purpose begin to bring their wives and families, they should be altogether excluded from the Colony. The contrariety of opinions held by the Anti-Chinese advocates strikingly displays th...

GEELONG TRADE REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 27 January 1857
GEELONG ÏEADE EEPOET. From the summary for England of the Advertiser, we quote the following : "Business, of course, has fluctuated dur ing the past twelve mouths, but in the opi nion of good judges, it is now in a very healthy state. Billa are met at maturity ; i these is here no over-trading, nor any specula tire movements going on that are likely to endanger the stability of our commercial men ; that the trade carried on is extensive, must be evident from the vast quantity of drays constantly arriving with produce, or going up the country fully laden ; and that it is legiti mate may be inferred from the contrast af forded to operations going on in the metropo lis, where goods are constantly passing from one warehouse to another, and the profit on transactions seem to be absorbed by brokers and commission agents. The imports for the week are of the de clared value of 42,830/.; and the Flying Foam has been the chief contributor. The prominent articles are soft goode, of which 'the ...
FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 27 January 1857
I FBANCE. ' 1 The Tintes says the chief difference, for the j settlement of which we are threatened With a ; second congress of Paris, lies within a very small compass. The Russians want to make j the boundary line pass south of Bolgrad, the j old Bessarabian town. The Russians kn- j posed upon the envoys at the Congress by i false maps and delusive statements, and the ' deception is evident. With respect to France, the Emperor of the French has been indis posed iu consequence of over work in a dis ! tant province of his empire not very acces sible to documents and advice, and he.has had those, not about him but away from him, who have only been too glad to perform the part of an Emperor without its conscience and its responsibility. That state of tilings is hap pily now past, and Napoleon the Third has had a lesson that even a blunt and plain rpoken friend is better than a smooth flatterer or a treacherous servant. We believe, too, that he feels as we feel, that the alliance of the...
