COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. Melbourne, Monday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. Melbourne. Monday Evening. The Customs House and the Various Government offices were closed to-day. No business of any kind has been transacted.           Messrs R. Goldsborough and Co. report for the past month as follows:-Monthly Wool Report-Wool-The   total quantity catalogued at the auction sales during the past mouth has been 29,937 bales, of which number about 18,000 bales have been sold. The rates quoted'in our last summary were tolerably well maintained until the 10th instant, when the receipt of home advices of a more unfavorable character than those by the previous mail, had the effect of checking the transaction of business. The heavy fall in value of cotton and eastern produce, extreme rate of discount, and numerous failures, must, it was evident, result in a decline in wool at the coming November sales in London, and it became apparent that operators on this side had b...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE SWIMMING BATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE SWIMMING BATH. SIB,-I want to know how it arises that the swim- ming bath requires lining with brick and puddle, incurring more expense, after the contract, accord-   ing to plans and specifications as prepared by the engineer (chaperoned by the Council) had been com- pleted? A few pertinent questions present themselves to my mind; and I think it would be to the general benefit of the shareholders (by the bye all capital called up) if the same were resolved. 1st. Was the work completed properly, and in accordance with aforesaid plans and specifications? 2nd. Was rub- ble work faced fit construction for the purpose in- tended, in spite of pointing the joints with cement, only mortar being used in the centre of the wall in the packing and building throughout? 3rd. Why not have taken the deep end out nearest to Arm- strong street? 4th. Who authorised cementing the joints on the exterior, at the north-east corner, upon the occasion of settlement, ...

THE LATE INQUEST AT MORRISONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

THE LATE INQUEST AT MORRISONS. SIr,-In reading the report of the inquest held on the body of the late James Bell, I was much astonished to find it there stated that he was an habitual drunkard. I, and in fact most of the people on Morrisons, have known him for the last five years, and never, during the whole time, has he   been known or supposed to be a drunkard. It is extremely hard that for one unfortunate error he should not only loose his life, but that his family should see his name bandied through all the papers of the colony, serving as a shocking example of the effects of habitual intemperance. If you would be kind enough to insert this you would be doing a kindness, not only to me, but to almost the entire population of Morrisons, the greater portion of which looked upon James Bell, not as an habitual drunkard, but knew and esteemed as a most res- pectable member of society. There were occasions, although so rare as scarcely to be noticeable, when, &nbs...

THE DAYLESFORD MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

THE DAYLESFORD MURDER. In our yesterday's issue we gave the result of a magisterial investigation into the circumstances   attending the death of Margaret Graham, so foully murdered at Daylesford last week. It now seems that an inquest by the coroner waa subsequently held.     The Mercury of Monday supplies a full report of the proceedings, of which the following is an abridgment:-     About five o'clock, the magisterial inquiry having been adjourned at a quarter past four, Mr Drum- mond arrived by coach from Castlemaine, and im- mediately issued precepts for a jury,which having been empannelled, he briefly addressed them,   pointing out the necessity of his holding an inquest, and then sent them to view the body. On arriving at the cottage of the deceased, it was found that the body had been arranged and coffined, the house also having been set in order, and all the ghastly evidences of the murder having ...

THE VOLUNTEER REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

THE VOLUNTEER REVIEW.     On Monday morning all Melbourne with its     suburbs was the scene of busy preparation. One   would have thought that, instead of a quiet holiday, with lots of amusement, we were at the commence-   ment of a little war somewhere about the shores of the Bay. The cavalry corps were the first to turn out, and from half-past eight till nine o'clock a.m. came to the rendezvous in twos and threes, till they mustered to the number of 215. Having been put   through a series of evolutions, by Captain Burton, they filed off, and after parading in long line down   Collins street, left town for the scene of the review, by way of Elizabeth street and the Ballarat road. By nine o'clock the streets were dotted here and there with the varied colors of the volunteer uniforms. Looking along Collins and Bourke streets, at every twenty yards, could be seen the gleam of arms;...

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 3RD JANUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 3RD JANUARY, 1865, THE metropolitan press every now and then felicitates its readers upon the possession of that noble institution the Melbourne Public Library, and refers to it as "one of the best things we have done during our brief career of independent existence." It is spoken of as "perhaps the one thing which classes of the community may view with equal satisfaction--the one thing to which we may all point as a great and useful public work, conceived and carried out in the spirit of the purest liberabity--the highest title that we possess to the name of a nation, and the best evidence we can adduce of our progress and enlightenment" such were the utterances of our Collins street contemporary in Friday's   issue, and we could entirely endorse them did we not feel that the colony at large has very little more to do with the institution than to bear its charges. It is quite true that at every stage of its progress supplies have been freely grant...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 January 1865

NEWS AND NOTES. Monday was all-but universally observed as a holiday on Ballarat, all kinds off business, save those which an eager pursuit of pleasure on the part of the whole population brought into unusually brisk demand, being wholly suspended. No doubt one cause of the so general observance of New-Year's Day as a holiday in Victoria is to be found in the   now highly popular Highland Gatherings. In most of the chief inland towns there are such meetings every New-Year's Day, and these are generally so largely attended as in themselves to spoil the day for business, and so by general consent the whole population goes in for pleasure. Yesterday, judging   from the general aspect of things, most people were successful in the pursuit to which they devoted themselves, for crowds of happy looking people were met with at every turning. A noticeable feature was the almost numberless crowds of children. In cars, in drays, in boats, and walking upon their feet, t...
