TUE STAR. THURSDAY, 7th AUGUST, 1856. OUR CANDIDATES. j DUKING last session of the Legis- ' lntive Council, Mr Fellowes, the pre- ; sent Solicitor General, introduced a I bill for the purpose of establishing an Inn ot' Court in the Colony ; with, a great flourish of trumpets he iiifonned the honorable members that the Bill would be of the greatest advantage to the Colony ; it would improve the standing of the legal profession, give it a higher tone, and lead to a better standard of education among its mem bers than exists at present- Had these been the real objects of the BUL it would, no doubt, have received the support of the liberal members of the House, and have been made law. The real'object however was to establish a Legal Corporation, possessing a mono poly of the legal business of the Colony; noue but members of it would be allowed to follow their pro fession here ; it would virtually have the power of stopping the supply of barristers and attornies, and of retain ing; to it...

commercial. BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. j .Ballarat, 6th August, 1856. ¡ The aspect of things in Ballarat proper, and its dependencies, is very cheering for the coining months-merchants, though, are complaining loudly of the great difficulty of executing then orders. AVe expect that the trade, during thc summer months, will bc such as has never been done on Ballarat before. The only alteration worthy of note in the market price is that of dour; the rot cat news from England and America has caused considerable excitement, and prices have advanced full £4 per ton. Bran also is scarce and ruling higher. GuoccaiEs.-Sugars are steady at our last quotations. The general impression as to Candles is that they will rule yet lower; Price's Bi Imonts ls. "3d. "to Is.

THE GOLD TRADE. (Ta the Editor of the Star.) Sí a,-I believe ic is usual when « clipper ship, and a fast Bailing one, like the " James Baines" is upon the berth for Liverpool, that gold is much sought after in this market, and purchased for shipment by such vessels. .The price of gold here is always higher by about two shillings an ounce than that of the Bindigo gold-fields ; the quality of our produce being about twenty-three and a-half carats lin?, whilst that of the Bendigo district is scarcely twenty-two and three quarters. This has beeu ascertained to be the relative purity for finest samples of both fields. by the latest experimenta in London, i Xt is no wonder then that our gold is in such démand, for it richly deserves...
STONEY CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 August 1856
[ _ BTOJfEY CREEK. j i have just seen a person from Stoney Creek | on whom I eau depend. He states that on j Saturday last, he saw a 14ib. nugget of pure gold taken out near thc Stockyard Creek ; he had it in his hand soon afterwards. It was found in clay-not any rock near it, and several other nuggets of 9 ozs. downwards, were also í brought to light. A 9 oz. nugget was taken out in the Splitters' Gully. ! There are about 2000 people spread over the ¡ Stoney Creek and adjoining diggings, and a jroat many coming every hour ; some also are leaving. Sly informant states that there are hun dreds making fortunes, a good many doing well,. and some not clearing expenses ; he has visited all the Victoria Gold Mines, and is of opinion that the Stoney Creek digging, and the neigh borhood, form an extensive gold field, and only want, what they are now likely to get, a good trial. Beef, 5d per lb ; mutton, 4s 6d per quarter ; tea and sugar cheap ; flour, 6d per lb. The charges at thc inns are ...

NEW SOUTH WALES GOLD FIELDS. _ STOKET CBEEX-- ' \ A correspondent -writing rrom aieroo on mc 22nd. instant, informs ns that in addition to thc 14-lb nugget foond at tho Stockyard Creek on the preñóos Saturday, another'large nugget, weighing 290 ounces, has since been found. It has been handed over to the Gold Commissioner in the district for safety, and to bc forwarded to Sydney by the escort leaving on the 26th in consequence of thc demand for means of transport, both by storekeepers and diggers shifting their quarters, freight from Bathurst and Mudgee to Meroo has risen very considera bly vitbin the last few weeks. About a month ago, horse teams could be obtained from Bath ust at 7s ; but, up to the date of writing, thc ¡ charge had been increased to 12s.

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 August 1856
_jHttttng. THERE are ever to be heard croakers, who go about whining their jeremiads respecting our gold fields. According to them we are on our last legs ; our leads are all run out, or running out ; and nothing is left for us but a most hu- j ndliating lapse from metropolitan ascendency to the rank of a third or fourth-rate position, or worse still, a condition of woe-begone, poverty-stricken " dufferdom." Wc very sincerely svmpathise with these me lancholy people. It is doubtless all due to a deranged stomach ; and thc very best thing for them will bc a judicious medical adviser, or a thorough good treatise upon dyspepsia. ' Happily for Ballarat there appears to be a recuperaoTcncss about her which, instead of leading us to hang down our heads, affords us ground for the most lively hope for the future a long, long future. At present we do not hope -we realise ; of which our steady escort re turns continue to be a satisfactory and conclu sive illustration. While there is nothing r...
MACHINERY IN MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 August 1856
MACHINERY IN MINING. ] The diggers' meeting at the Theatre last Saturday deserves a few lines of comment. It cannot fail to have left some sort of impression, «pon most persons present-to have set in action new trains of thought,-or to have confirmed past convictions, upon seve ral questions of pressing importance not only to the diggers themselves, but to the colony at large. We need scarcely remark that truth or error, wisdom or impolicy, upon any pointe, are not tested by the fate of resolu tions-they cannot be ascertained by vote,-and a little calm reconsidera tion of certain subjects then mooted may not be wholly wasted. Thc question of using machinery in mining was not fairly represented there. We arc satisfied that the be lief in the advantages of its employ ment has made far greater general progress than it appeared to have done among that section of the mining community then present. We are equally assured that the possession of the means for its purchase would have materia...

BENDIGO. We abridge the following intelligence from the Advertiser :-"The quartz reef behind the British American is still being worked with spirit, and although as yet no gold has been struck, the indications are such as to hold out every inducement to persevere. The reef, or supposed reef, lately taken up in front of Mr Hydes' store, is turning out pretty well, some fine specimens of coarse gold being procurcd each day. At present nothing but loose rubble quartz has been found, but the gold procured is sufficient to encourage the parties to &nbsp; go on. &nbsp; Considerable improvements have been made &nbsp; in the common puddling machine at Iron Bark. &nbsp; Some ingenious Americans have constructed &nbsp; &nbsp; one so that the horse, by cog and fly wheels, &nbsp; &nbsp; puddles, pumps, and cradles at the same time. &nbsp; This saves a great deal of labor, and is worthy the attention of the owners of puddlin...

POLICE COURT. Tuesday, August 5th. &nbsp; (Before W. Turner. Esq., S. M.) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; John Simon, a native of Manilla, was placed &nbsp; at the bar charged with the wilful murder of &nbsp; Timothy Molan, at Brown's Diggings in the &nbsp; month of July last. It may be in the recollec- tion of our readers that the deceased lost his life in an affray with some natives of Manilla &nbsp; and a New Zealander, having first provoked &nbsp; the affray by knocking the New Zealander's &nbsp; eye out. An inquest had been held before Dr. &nbsp; Clendinning the coroner, when the jury had re- &nbsp; turned a verdict of "justifiable homicide" with regard to the parties who had killed Molan. The prisoner, Simon, had been arrested at Sandridge and sent up to Ballarat, under the warrant of the Mayor of Melbourne, on a charge of wilful murder. Constable Hart now deposed, that he had brought the pris...

I MELBOURNE. (From our own Correspondent.) Sdi August, 1856. Of candidates for the honor of representing this City in the Legislative Assembly, the greatest number that can be enumerated up to this date is nine ; and with regard to some of them, it is donbtful whether or not they will j abide the issue of a contest.
