The Star. DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 29TH JANUARY, 1857. THE HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 29 January 1857

4\n #tnr. DAILY ISSUE . THURSDAY, 29TH JANUARY, 1857. THE HOSPITAL. It is gratifying to observe the increas ing interest manifested by the miners in the well-being of the Hospital. For a time the apathy of this all-important section of the community had almost disheartened the promoters of the In stitution, who began to fear - being unsupported by those, the frequent accidents of whose occupation caused them to make a large use of its benefits that the Hospital, ii not closed, would be so cramped in its usefulness, through the want of funds, as to be practically valueless. This fear, though far from being removed, has been considerably lessened by recent practical proofs of sympathy on the part of the miners, who are at length beginning to appre ciate the advantages of the Institution, and to recognise the claims which it has on their heartiest support.

ONE DAY'S LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 29 January 1857

ONE DATS LATEE EUROPEAN NEWS. The arival of the " IstambouL" the first ship of the Auxiliary Screw Steam Company, has placed us iu possession of one day's later news. There is no thing of any importance, but the fol lowing items, which we extract from the letter of the Argus correspondent, j may interest some of our readers : - j The principal feature of interest is the rise ! In the rate of discount. At a Court of Direc- 1 tors of the Bank of England, held yesterday, it was decided to raise the discount on bills having any length of time to run to 7 per cent.-a rate not attained even during the most pressing months of the war. Were the rate made even stOl higher, the export of bul lion would not thereby be prevented, for the Bank of France, which is the cause of this de rangement in our market, having already shown itself so unscrupulous in its determination to create and maintain a fictitious appearance, will not be deterred by any rate of percentage from perpetuating the evil whi...
