SOUTHERN MEMORANDA. BY AN ERRATIC CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 February 1857
SOUTHERN MEMORANDA. I BY AJí EKKATIC COEBESFONDEÎîT. | So the Governmental Bull is to be forthwith taken by the horns by a deputation from the London Pro visional Committee of the Geelong and Ballarat and Adelaide Railway, now upon the sea, en route for Victoria ! This project is being duly heralded in -the Geelong Advertiser, in a rather racy prospectus, the perusal of which will, doubtless, suggest to the Austra lian settler how lamentably ignorant j he is of the country in which he has ' became a dweller. The line is to pass by Mount Dromedary, a place so dis tant, that nobody has ever heard of it out of London, and after mounting the dromedary-or surmounting it rather the company propose to go the entire animal, and not to water their cattle until they -have reached the. fertile plains of Adelaide! The projectors have ascertained beyond a doubt, that the line is, for the most part, level and has no engineering difficulties-no bridges or other expensive works, and that, in fact, ...

THE CHINESE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 February 1857
THE CHINESE QUESTION. ¿HE question ot c túnese immigration is clearly a difficult one. A very general feeling exists against the whole race. If this feeling be traced to its origin, it will be discovered to arise in a great many cases from per sonal dislike. Some few entertain moral and religious objections to their introduction, but the mining popula tion are opposed to them chiefly on account of their interference with water rights and the impossibility of making them understand. The state or the legislature have, however, as little to do with their religion as with their morals, so long at least as the improper tendencies of the .latter be not intruded on public notice ; and any one wbo founds thereon an argu ment against Chinese immigration, must be prepared to acknowledge a state religion and a statute code of morals. The other bijection bas some vitality and strength. The Chinese do most materially inter fere ïffîkthe supply of ^pfer la iamy places, a^ifiTsomiin^c^.brcaches of...

itttt. DAILY ISSUE . WEDNESDAY, 4TII FEBRUARY, 1857. GOVERNMENT RAILWAYS AND PRIVATE ENTERPRISE. IN the latter portion of the letter which we published yesterday, under the signature of " Viator," and which so strongly advocates the Government system of railways, that it might have been written by the veritable Mr Richard Woolley himself, or by some one equally interested in the disposal of the £6,000,000 of public money, which is about to be expended for the benefit of Melbourne and its suburbs, the novel doctrine is propounded that profit is no object with the Government in the construction of their railways. The increased value and sale of the lands, the settlement of the people, the progress of civilisation, (!) and the in creased comfort and welfare of the ' community ; " these,"says "Viator" with an air of triumph which in him is excus able, "these are the legitimate profits of railways constructed by Government ; but they are such as would afford no inducement to the enterpri...

Mr Batten would not affirm that the gold disoveries were at unalloyed good, still they had mitigated the evils attendant on scarcity of employment and food. Trade was in creased. The free political institutions of this colony would open the eyes of those at home to their rights.
