Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 February 1857
Min tug. THE past fortnight bas been fruitful in mat ters of interest to those concerned in mining affairs. A flood of litigation has supervened upon the advent of the New Regulations, the cir¿um6tances attending which have proved that even the people who made the regula- ! tiona could not understand them ¡ or that each inclined to a free and independent inter pretation thereof. And yet we were found fault with when we endeavored to enforce a little pruning and thinning of the masses of verbiage sent forth as lawB for the miners of the district. But really, with our recent ex periences of disorder in the conduct of the judicial business of thc Local Court, it is im possible not to imagine the existence of analagous eccentricities in legislative session ; and hence the naturel conclusion that the wonder is our laws are as clear and precise as they are. The lawyers have made sad havoc was intrepid enough» to tell the Court that Mr Michie was right when he said they ought not to admini...

I WHITE HOESE. | (From our own Gorrespondenl.J 10th February, 1852. WHAT THE MEIT OF SEBASTOPOL HATE DODE.-It will perhaps be in the memory of many, that some few weeks back, it was notified that a gentleman on Sebastopol, (Mr Walk Surveyor), was preparing a geological survey of ¡this hill and surrounding gullies, under the enterprise of the committees of White Horse and Frenchman's for the en hancement of the funds of the leads, and which has been lithographed, and will be in the bands of an agent in a few days hence for sale ; they contain (two in number) a beau tiful delineation of the Hills and surrounding gullies, so well known in this locality, and an interesting colored stratified description of these allied leads, with a key, forming a great novelty in Ballarat for presentation to friends at home. At the usual weekly committee meeting on Monday evening, and through the kindness of the Secretary, I am enabled to state that it was moved by Mr Bradbury, and seconded by Mr McCau...

?\¡t liar. _PAII.T I8SÜB. W EDNESDAY, UTH FEBRUABY, 1857. THE PROPERTY QUALIFICA TION. THE Assembly Members Property Qualification Bill having been passed by the Lower, will to day be brought before the Upper House for the second reading. There have been a great many premonitory mutterings of oppo sition from the honorable ge¿Jemen, and as there are a few of them whose course of political conduct seems to be regulated, not hy the evident wish of the people, ot fevén by what may be considered the general welfare of the Colony, but by a principle of blind an tagonism to the more liberal members of the Assembly, we may consider the safety of the Bill as somewhat doubt ful. This is the more probable, as from the Constitution of the Council, the members are almost insensible to the pressure of public opinion ; the Press h as not a tithe of the influence over them that it has over the members of the Assembly. Were this not the case, the passing of the Bill in its in tegrity would not be d...

COPPER AND GOLD DISCOVERIES IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 February 1857
COPPER AND GOLD DISCOVE RIES IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The Adelaide Times says, for some j weeks past a rumor has been current in Adelaide of a further discovery of copper to the northward.

3Lotal Sittelltgettce, CALEDONIAN LEAD.-This ground was proclaimed yesterday by Mr Warden Smith, and Mr Wingate has been chosen snrreyor by the committee of the miners there. We have heard the proclamation called a " con ditional " one ; but what that means we cannot tell ; as we are not aware that the regulations speak anywhere about any more than one kind of proclaiming, namely a " determining" when and where the front age system is to be applied. It appears that two persons went down the Caledonian prospect shaft on Tuesday, and having ex amined thc workings, made affidavit, or were prepared to do so, that a gutter had been proved and both reefs struck. On the other hand, four other persons went down, the same morning, arid they were not pre pared to say that the two reefs had been struck, and therefore thai the gutter had been thoroughly proved. The War den, however, took the opinion of the two men, arid proclaimed the ground telling the Lady Barkly surveyor, when he in timated ...

ITALY. If we may believe a letter from Na- j pies, King Ferdinand is said to have ! pardoned 47 political prisoners and j exiles, among whom are the companions | of Poerio, but not he himself. We j also learn from Naples, that several soldiers have been arrested there in th« act of distributing a revolutionary pro clamation to their comrades ; and that the informer, also a soldier, has been raised to the rank of sergeant in con sequence.

ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE THE KING OF NAPLES. At noon, on the 8th December, there was a review and fett in honor of the ¡ Immaculate Conception in Naples. While the troops were defiling, a soldier of the 31st battalion of Chasseurs rushed from the ranks and struck the King on the left side. The King was not wound ed. The soldier was knocked down and seized by Colonel Latour. The Oesterreichische Correspondez says that the bayonet of the soldier struck the King of Naples on the right side, above the waist. By another account we are informed that a soldier fired his car bine at his Majesty, who, it is said, was slightly wounded ; that the soldier was killed on the spot, and that Naples was ! agitated. It is added that the intelli gence from Sicily was satisfactory. \
