Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 5 February 1857

3Local EntelltgeuK. SUPPOSED NEW LEAD. - Mr Surveyor Cowan was instructed by the Warden to proceed yesterday to the prospecting claim alongside the old Eureka line, near to the whim claim known as " California Jack's Claim,1' and to ascertain whether or nov there were any indications of a lead tliere, preparatory to steps being taken for the pro clamation of the ground. Tile prospecting claim is called the Caledonian, and is that of which we spoke iu our last Mining Summary, as being in all probability the Eureka end of the gutter struck by the prospectors near the Slaughter-yard. There has been consi derable activity manifested in the neighbor hood of late, and it appears that some of the miners, fancying that the Caledonian pro spectors had struck a distinct lead, probably the old Brown Hill gutter, applied to the Warden for formal proclamation. Mr Cowan consequently was sent yesterday, but he was unable to go down the shaft because of the heavy water, and the survey has been post...

(Tljr ft ur. ! DAILY ISSTJE . THURSDAY, 5TH FEBRUARY, 1857. THE GOVERNMENT RAILWAY SCHEME. Ix tho voluminous Railway Report which the Surveyor - General lately ¡aid before the Legislature, it is as sumed as u matter of course that pub lic opinion is decidedly in favor of the construction of railways by Go vernment, and. moreover, that the principal reason for such a conclusion being come to by the public, is the total failure of private enterprise in the formation ol' railways in the co lour. We totally deny the correct ness of the first assumption, and we will presently expose the one-sided and erroneous statements by which, whatever of public feeling that does exist ia favor of the Government scheme has been originated. As we before stated, the alleged failure of the Melbourne and Mount Alexander Railway Company is the strongest and almost only argument advanced in favor of Government rail ways. Yesterday, we showed the hollowness of the conclusion* that have been deduced from tha...

Every person re siding in the interior is at the mercy of any one who chooses tn st io1* the word Doctor over his door, arid if his ad dress be plausible and his manners be gentlemanlike, he may reap a rich harvest of fees, where a better qualified, ; though a less unscrupulous, practi- j doner would starve.

HOW THE MONEY GOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 6 February 1857

HOW THE MONEY GOES. The Age of yesterday has the fol lowing article on the unauthorised ex penditure of Government, for railway purposes, of nearly £600,000. Every day seems to shew more clearly that the whole scheme of Government railways is neither more »or less than a gigantic job, carried on by one or two members of the Executive, and backed by a horde of con tractors, and place hunters. The article of the Age will be found well worth perusal. We shall have some thing to say on the matter in a day or two. The Surveyor-General will this day lay before the Assembly his little bill of unauthorised railway expenditure up to the 31st January last. In order thal honorable members may have some clear idea of the exact amount of money they are called upon-to pay out of the public treasury, we were going to say, but that is as good as done already-to endorse, we shall analyse a paper laid upon the table of the House, giving a full statement of the ! payments and liabilities incurred up t...

BALLARAT ARITHMETICAL PBO. j LEMS.

" We are," snys the TVVnes, speaking on be half of the diggers of Ballarat, " eight times as important o9 a blue book ; tlu-ee times as important as the lodge at the old cemetery ; and seven times as important as the dead bodies in the oid cemeteiy at Castlemaine." PUNCH is delighted to hear it. ; and if any attempt should be made to depreciate the im portance of Ballarat, he will appeal to the conclusive testimony of the Times, and to the demonrtration so ingeniously based upon a blue book, the lodge of a cemetery, and an indefinite quantity of dead bodies.

THE SERVANTS' HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 6 February 1857

i -== ! THE SERVANTS' HOME. THE unsatisfactory nature of the sys tem under which agreements with female domestic servants are usually made, has at length forced itself on the public attention. Some months since we pointed out the frightful evils of the present system of unlicensed Labor Marts, and Registry Offices, where poor and friendless females seek ing for an honest livelihood, are frequently entrapped into situations which end in their ruin. Our remarks at the time led to considerable discus sion of the question in private circles, and the conclusion arrived at, was that our remarks were but too true ; that the evils alluded to, were of such a nature as to demand instant attention, and that an association of the ladies of this district should be formed to take the matter in hand, by founding a Servants' Home. A correspondence was opened with a kindred institution in a neighboring colony, and the success of the movement was as certain as its requirement was urgent, yet nothing ...
