Charles Henri, plaintiff, deposed, through an interpreter, that defendant had promised to give him 30s a week since fifteen days' past, and to give him a half share in the Black Hill Flat Company for working a full share.

MINING ON PRIVATE LANDS. (From the Argus.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 February 1857

MINING ON PRIVATE LANDS. I (From the Argus.) j Une of the most important questions that this colony has at present to deal with, and one peculiarly likely to lead to hot contest in our Parliament, is to be brought before it to-day by Mr Humffray. The " right of mining on private lands" was closely debated in the late Legislature, and we felt per suaded when tiie discussion ended as it did, that it was destined to be revived, and that the subject would never be finally disposed of tall a decision had : been come to very different to that. arrived at when the matter was last discussed. The right of mining on private lands, as it has been called, or, as it might be otherwise described the public expe diency of authorising miners to enter upon private lands for the purpose of extracting the public property therein contained, is not indeed a matter as large number;^ consci- j entioulïy regard aa a gross Vïokvtion of j right «nd justice, and *i»at inay. «wa í te zmficomtfrued abroad I tot...

REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 February 1857

I REVIEW. I We have received the February number 1 of thc " Illustrated Journal of Australasia," which contains an agreeable variety of both useful and interesting matter. The illus trations are ere li table alike to the artist and the publication ; the view of " The Willows," or that part of the river Yarra being especially noteworthy, near to Hodgson's Punt. The opening chapter, " Dull as Ditch Water," is a lively description of the wonders to be met with in a few drops of stagnant puddle water, when viewed through, a powerful microscope ; and is a remembrancer of thc fact that there is nothing in nature that docs not present us with materials for study and reverent wonder. Mr Massertt's "When the Moon on the Lake is gleaming," is a pleasant musical little melody, and the' typography is excellent, as also the appro priate vignette. ".A Night in the Bush" makes us hope no more Edward Vern ons will be introduced into these pages, with their reckless selfishness and unmanly in dulgen...

Now and again, in reply to the anxious and perhaps impatient interrogatories of some of the honorable members on the Opposition Benches, a member of the Cabinet pops up, and blandly informs the House, that the matter is under consideration, and will be attended to without delay. What that means, in Government parlance, would be diffi cult exactly to define. That it means thal the question has occupied, or may then be occupying the attention of the honorable the members of the Exe cutive, there would be little hazard in assuming ; but he would be a bold man, and a daring ex perimenter as to the causes of inertia, who would venture to predict the exact period when the powers that be will awake to thc knowledge that the question to be decided j is no longer-How not to do it- j but How and When to do it. | Doub...

It is the unanimous opinion of all who have visited the place that the general appearance of the gullies and auriferous indications of the country are exceedingly favorable for gold, and likely to turn out a rich and re munerative field for tbe large population now working in and about Bendigo for little bet ter than a living; and certainly the vast tract of auriferous country that here lies open to the adventurous miner-a country that has never been fairly prospect...
