CHINESE OATHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 3 February 1857

CHINESE OATHS.     To what extent may the Chinese be classed as Heathens? and why should we consider   Oaths administered to them to be worthless— are they ignorant of the nature of an oath?   These questions naturally arise when we find that by to-day's Ordinance, Heathens in this colony can give evidence without being sworn, and be liable to the punishment of perjury if their evidence is proved to be false. Let us be guided by remarks of some of the most profound writers upon Chinese affairs, and take into consideration also some of the sayings of the Chinese themselves, to see whether they should all be placed in the * -gr.

tyt état. BAUT ISSUE._._ TUESDAY, 3ND FEBRUARY, 1857. GOVERNMENT RAILWAY CON STRUCTION AND ITS PRO MOTERS. VIEWED from two different points it is quite natural that the same object should, to the separate spectators, pre sent a dissimilar aspect. A project, placed in like manner before men more or less interested in its fulfil ment, for the purpose of obtaining a decision upon its merits, would be very apt to receive judgment accord ing to the bias afforded by the pecu liar interests of each. We are not at all surprised, therefore, at the tone adopted by " Viator " in his comma- j ideation, in our columns to-day, upon " Railways," to which we would par ticularly draw the attention of our readers. Had the advocates of the Government scheme possessed a little more boldness-had they possessed a stronger faith in the justness of their proceedings-or felt firmly convinced of the truthfulness of the argu ment they were disposed to advanee in support of it, they they wotdd have earlier tak...

STEIGLITZ. Monday, 2nd February. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 February 1857

STEIGLITZ. i Monday, 2nd February. ! Since last oommunioation this gold-field has assumed quite a bustling and enlivened aspect. A considerable number of fresh ar- ! rivals have taken place, principally, how- i ever, of working men. There are still many j good chances in the market for the invest- j i ment of capital in shares, averaging from £30 to £200, and these chances in many cases are only temporarily put up for sale. j All over the fields where^the shafts have been sunk to any considerable depth, the amalga mation of claims is spoken of, and I have no doubt that in the course of a few months numbers of contiguous claims, the parties in which are now wasting their time and labor in contending against water and other diffi culties, will be unitedly and profitably pur suing their search after the golden ore. On New Chum Beef another claim struck the deep leader on Friday last, that is, the claim situated No. 3 soulh from Hood and Company's, and occupied by McGrath and Company. T...

Owing to the pressure of other more Jinportant. matters, TOrjjlitÜe attention has been paid to the bill, bax now that its probable effects have been con sidered, we have reason to believe that it wfll not pass into law without amendment. The provision to which we allude isthat by which any member/of» firm may act as auctioneer, although only one takes out a license. The palpable effect will be to very much decrease the number of licenses taken out, as by convenient arrangements which will in all probability be entered into amongst the small fry, a man who has paid no license at all has only got to represent himself as one of the " and Company" at tached to the name of some person who nas taken out a license, and his right to wield the hammer will be undisputed.
