GEELONG AND BALLARAT RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 28 January 1857

GEELONG AND BALLARAT RAILWAY. IN another column will be found the petition circulating for signature in connection with it. There cannot be the slightest doubt but that' the Line of Railway from Geelong to Ballarat would be by far the shortest and cheapest of any line proposed to be constructed by the Government, and that for these very reasons it would, with proper diligence, be made in the shortest space of time. If two lines are to be carried out simultaneously, as promised, then we say, that, finan cially and commercially, the Geelong Une is decidedly to be prefered. The monstrosity of a linc from Melbourne I to Ballarat, running for a long distance parallel to the Castlemaine line, and placing this district in connection with one sea-port only, is not to be tolerated. It was a wrong policy in the first instance ever to sanction or concur in the construction of Railways by the Government-it was wrong politically I financially and commercially. It is now submitted to only as a ne...

(.% If or. DilLY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 2STH JANUARY, l$57. WANTED A POLICY. WAKTED A party, sonic may think, is tho more pertinent cry -, but, so long as ¡i defined policy is wanting, the life blood mid nervous principle of a party has yet to lie created. The evils under which the country has labored, while struggling into existence, we should have thought would, long ere this, have indicated the ground-work of a policy, upon which the foundations of party might have been laid. To the want of statesmen amongst ns, however, we must attribute the neglect of those ordinary courses of action by which parties ate formed, and the practical destinies of a nation are guided and directed. It is a want incident to colonial life, that iu the early stages of its ex- i istence, but few men are found whose abilities are directed towards the science of Government, and a still less number of those whose capacities fit them for the exercise of the duties of responsible legislators. Unlike, in origin, to...

Mr Kaye by the Melbourne Bench, and Captain Henry, of the '-George Marshall," the other defendant, by the Wil liamstown Bench. There seems to be little do ubt of their guilt, though, from various circumstances, they have escaped the penalty. Lieutenant Pasco, B.N., Police Magistrate at Williamstown, after delibera ting with his brother magistrate for about half an hour, called the defendant into court, and delivered the following judg ment. We quote from the Argus : "This case is dismissed, with this. ob servation: that were circumstantial evi dence admissible, a conviction would have followed. The evidence shews a case of smuggling against a Mr Kaye, but the con nection is lost between the things landed and those found.

MELBOURNE GOSSIP. ; in tue event ol toe ministry remaining in power, Messrs Childers, Clarke, and Pasley will be the ex-officio members of the proposed railway board, while Messrs O'shanassy and Griffith are spoken of as the two representa tive members. We may safely state that Mr O'shanassy would not accept. such an' ap-i pointaient ; uor could the offer be meant as anything else than a cloak for the appoint- ? ment of a real Government man. By all means let Mr Griffith be appointed, and by all means let the railway be taken, as he" suggests, through Ballan. He has, as he ad mits, got extensive property there. Surely 1 should not the railway, be made for his special benefit ? Does not the colony exist to aecomodate such men as he ?
