MELBOURNE ROAD BUILDINGS.-We un derstand some doubt exists among the resi dents along the Bakery-hill part of the new linc of road to Melbourne as to the line of boundary, yet new erections appear to be going up pretty fast in that locality, and some of them will "cost no inconsiderable sums, lt would be exceedingly disagree able for those parties to be visited some day after they have got snugly boused, and to be politely requested to take their houses to pieces, and to put them up somewhere else, where they would be off fte road; and in order, to prevent this, it is but fair that the surveyor ahoold be instructed to make the line known in the-neighborhood once for all, now that thc road formed and people are settling along there in consider abl...

The Star. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 2ND FEBRUARY, 1857. THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 2 February 1857
9A.IZ.7 ISSUE. MONDAY, 2ND FEBRUARY, 1857. THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON RAILWAYS. THE defeat of Mr. Pyke's motion for the enlargement of the Select Com mittee on Railways, by the addition of three representatives of gold-fields con-" stituencies, is an evil omen for those who are interested in securing the adoption of a sound and efficient scheme of railway communication between the chief centres of population on the vari ous gold-fields and the sea-board. As at present composed, the Select Com mittee is not such as to inspire us with confidence in its dealing equitably and impartially with the general interests of the country, in any report it may prepare as the basis for future legisla tion and action upon this vitally im portant question. In the preparation of the Government scheme, and in most of the discussions which have taken place, the whole subject has been re garded from a metropolitan point of view. Little or no attention has been paid to the wants and requirements of the popu...

POLICE COURT. Saturday, 31st January (Before W. Turner, Esq., S.M., and Mr Warden Lowther, J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 2 February 1857
POLICE COURT. Saturday, 31st January (Before W. Turner, Esq., S.M., and Mr Warden Lowther, J.P.) George Wilson was fined 20s, or in default twenty-four hours' imprisonment, for being drunk and disorderly. Samuel Gibson was charged with feloni- ously stealing a grey mare, branded JH con- joined, on the off shoulder, the property of Joseph Stubling. The case was remanded to Buninyong, for investigation. Isaac Robottom was charged with riding on the footpath, and was fined 5s. SUMMONS CASE.Robinson v Hickman. -This was an ad- journed summons for refusing to leave the complainant's ground. Mr Turner said he did not think that the &nbsp; case came under the Management of Towns Act, under which it had been brought, but still as the property in question belonged to Mr Robinson, it was very wrong of Mr Hickman to persist in stopping on it . If he (Mr Turner) had the power, he should &nbsp; feel disposed to send Mr Hickman to prison. The judgment of the Bench on the case woul...
AREA OF CLAIMS. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 3 February 1857
AREA. OF CLAIMS. CTo Hie Editor of the Stir J Sis,-I was astonished to see, in the re port of your correspondent from Chinaman's, a paragraph complaining of the extent of claims there, which he Bays are 36 feet square, and "sadly loo much, he fears." "Ais said that a pen in the hand of a fool is a dangerous weapon, and even his pen may do some harm. Whatever may be his oc cupation, he, living on the diggings, must be dependent on the working miner for his living. Is not the prosperity of the miner the main-stay of the colony ? If he is weil off, does not his money benefit storekeepers, tradesmen, editors, lawyers, and even Local, Court men ? in short every class in the com munity is affected by his prosperity or failure. Look at the consequence of men getting 36 feet chums at Chinaman's. How many thousands have left Ballarat who would have stayed here if they could have got claims half that size. I am the more induced to make these re marks as it is supposed by many that some member...
BALLARAT versus BA.T vers BENDIGO. j (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 3 February 1857
I BÂ.LLA.BA.T versus BENDIGO. j I (To the Editor of the Star.) j Oil,-i iiayc ueezi vtfjjf xiiuuji juicrtaicu with the perusal of certain articles which have lately appeared in the Star, wherewith yon pluck the plumes in which Bendigo would vainly seek to deck herself, and Btrip her down to her ordinary every day garb. No one who has known Ballarat for so long a period as you and I have, and who has so long watched her yield of gold, can entertain a shadow of doubt concerning the truth of your assertions. The amount of physical labor which has been expended in the workings of this place, I think will afford a great proof of the high opinion all miners who have visited this our metropolitan gold-field have ever enter tained of it. It is situated, without excep ; tion, in one of the richest and most rising j agricultural districts ; it is surrounded with j mamaneUoid hills, of which the volcanic soil is fast becoming proverbial for fertility; it possesses a race of men who, as miners,...
GEELONG COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. Saturday evening, 31st Jan. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 3 February 1857

The articles at all prominent are flour from Launceston, steam engines and machinery from London, a heary parcel of soap from Liverpool, timber, ¿c., from Tasmania, and 5,000 gallons bottled beer. Tiie expoits, valued at £205, comprise live i.^-tck and mouldings, shipped to Van Diei^en'« Land. The receipts at the Custon.^ have amounted to £3,533 7s. Sd. Considerable effect has been produced in the markets by the numerous arrivals from Europe and America, during the past week; the quantity of imported goods already exceeds the estimated consumption, and if supplies continue to pour in as they have done lately, great circumspection will be necessary to escape both inconvenience and loss. During the month just completed the &lt; total sum collected by H. M. Customs at j tí...
GEELONG AND BALLARAT RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 3 February 1857
GEELONG AÑD RAILWAY. *%KE Indignation meeting" has ended as we expected, in-smoke. What ever feith the people of Geelong may -haVe in Messrs Haines and Sladen, they appear to forget that those two worthy gentlemen are not ¿hjí Execu tive, that while they continue to be members of the ill-assorted " party," yclept «* a Government," they are in no way to be held responsible for any promises they may make, more parti cularly if they have reference to any interest, direct or otherwise, on behalf of Geelong. It is not to be wondered at, therefore, if the representatives of the district, knowing better^ the state of " positions political,'' thought fit to absolve Messrs. Haines and Sladen, and deal with the Government upon its merits, and the j Railway " Scheme as circumstances j dictated. The meeting in question, j from the report contained in TAe \ Advertiser, appears to have been as ; most meetings usually are in that ; district-very noisy, rather impractical j and very unsatisfactory....
LEASING OF CLUNES. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 3 February 1857
LEASING OF CLUNES. | A SHOUT time ago, we announced that the proprietors of the Clunes pre emptive right had offered to make ar rangements for the leasing of a portion of their property, including the famous quartz reefsj that first proclaimed to the World the golden treasures of Vic toria, and which of late have been the cause of so many disturbances, and so much alarm to the colony. We are now able to announce that provisional arrangements have been made with the Port Phillip and Colonial Gold Mining Company for the lease of one hundred and sixty acres of the pre-emptive right (including the quartz reefs) for a term of three years, with power of extension to twenty-one years. We say that this arrangement is a provisional one : the agreement being concluded so far as Mr M'Donald and his partners are concerned, but the Port Phillip Company have about three weeks allowed to make arrangements for the organisation of a company on the co-operative principie : if they are unsuccessful in...
