THE LAND! THE LAND! THEKE are subjects, the vital im portance of which is a sufficient apo logy for constant recurrence thereto, and amongst these, the consideration of the best means of bringing the mass of the people into possession of the land holds a very prominent posi tion. In a little time will be assem bled the first constitutional parliament of Victoria, a congress from which will be excluded every element of no mineeism ; and the future of this em bryo empire is to bo ebapod by us wlio live now, and have to assist at the in auguration of purely representative government.

MELBOURNE. (From our own Correspondent.) August 3rd. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 5 August 1856

¡ MELBOURNE. (From oar own Correspondent.) August 3rd. me ucntral l'rovince Reform Association has, I suppose, already done its work. Through its agener, the great demonstration of Thurs day evening, was accomplished, and aa ultra liberal code of political opinion was accepted by the electors of Melbourne. By its efforts the " democratic platform," previously an abstraction has been defined and set limits to. "What the " new movement" failed to accom plish, has been achieved by such weak vessels as Tankard, Hugh M'Coll, (whom the Age calls Coppock.) and W. Robinson; the last named filling the post of paid secretary to the Reform Association. Some of our prominent reformers behaved rather scurvily to the Association, they availed themselves of its services to obtain the acceptance, by the electors, in public meet ing assembled, of their charter, and they dis claimed any previous connexion with thc move ment out of which the meeting arose. This was most ungrateful condnct,:-kicking do...

THE EDUCATIONAL QUESTION. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 5 August 1856

I THE EDUCATIONAL QUESTION. j I ^ J¿ro the Editor of the Star.) j KIT-wm you allow me a small space to say a few words in reply, to your correspondent James-though I scarcely think his letter de serves notice, as he has evidently been more anxious to excite a laugh at my expense than to refute what I advanced. Any impartial person comparing the two let ters would say that the difficulties I mentioned still remain. James sap that one portion of the scholars having to bear thc taunts of thc other is not so bad as some thirty "children being deprived of a kind of instruction their parents wish them to have." But so far from being deprived of this instruction by thc adop tion of the national system, that system secures it, and it is imparted by the most competent person-the tnnuster of the congregation to which the parent belongs. There are various opinions respecting the sacredness of the Bible. I still retain minc, namely, that it is too sacred for a class book. As tor certain sects b...

Several shafts are now into the second rock, which is generally the last bed, and expected, to be about 50 or 60 feet, where five or six shafts occur of nearly one depth, the water appears to be more uniformly divided, which shews the propriety of amalgamating or i acting in union with each other in this laborious ...
