The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 29TH MARCH, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 29 March 1865
DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, [29TII MARCH, 18G5. THE northern portion of the territory of Western Australia, of which such favorable reports have recently been made, has been attracting a good deal of attention in Vic toria, and some of our well-known capitalists and settlers have made application for tracts of country in that district. Nothing can well be a better proof of the energy of our popu lation than the fact, that Victoria is sure to provide' a strong contingent of adventurers in any enterprise of pith and moment that offers. A. large number of our young men, whose business experience has been confined to the superintendence of the breeding and general management of sheep and cattle, are eager for any new opening that will give them the opportunities like those most of our successful squatters bad at the commencement of their careers in Victoria. The haidships and risks, the rough and secluded life of the pioneers of new territory, have little or no terrors in the eyes of our ad...

HAND-IN-HAND COMPANY. The Hand-in-Hand Company started the works at the No. 2 shaft on Tuesday, on which occasion there was a very large gathering of shareholders and guests. Indeed, we ore of opinion that among the many festive celebrations of this kind which the mining companies of the district have had, this one of the Hand-in-Uand Company deserves to be ranked as one of the completes!. No fewer than from 200 or 300 persons were present, including a large numbor of gaily-dressed ladies, who were wives, daughters, or friends of shareholders. A large marquee was erected near the works, and a cold refection, ample in provision and elegant in dis play, was there provided by the company, Mr White house, of the British Queen Hotel, Bridge street, being the caterer. A small band of musicians gave Additional zsst to the proceedings. The Hand-in-Hand Company is one of our oldest companies, and has iiad its lull share of ups and downs upon the great mining wheel of fortune. Its first shaft...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 29 March 1865
NEWS AND NOTES. Mr Evan Davie?, contractor, who, as was stated on Monday, was injured on Sunday forenoon through being jammed against the side of a etall in a stable by a young horse, died about nine o'clock oa Mon day night. Tiie deceased having bought the horse was about to tuke it away from the stable of Mr Alexander Ross, of Eureka 6treet, and on passing up the stall the animal squeezed him against the Bide. It appears he did not take the precaution of speaking before approaching the stall, and to this fact the unfortunate accident may be attributed. 'i'lie deceased was attended to by JJr liobson shortly afterwards, but lie never rallied, although he was | quite sensible until death. The medical evidence adduced at the inquest on Tuesday r.fternoon sliowc-d that the deceased had suffered severe iuternal inju ries iu the region of the abdomen and groin through bfcing squeezed by the horse, and that his death was caused by the Bevero shock his system sustained thereby.

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 29 March 1865
MINING INTELLIGENCE. | The Corner was quiet on Tuesday, and tho busi ness done in shares was limited. The great num ber of new schemes day alter day brought forward 19 beginning to have a depressing effect on all kinds of mining shares, the number of sellers being greatly in excess of buyers. The only activity noticeable is in the launching of these new companies, which gene rally find so much favor, that promoters are some of them stretching a point in favor of themselves by demanding a premium of £2 each on every share they issue to the public. There are other com panies proposed for working thrice-tried ground, which would not be looked at except in a time of unnatural excitement like the present, and not oven then,but with the view of turning a penny by traffick ing in the scrip. The resources of the district are, without doubt, being strained to keep afloat many worthless schemes, but the only cure for this evil lies in the prudence of investors.
