Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 August 1856

Local Intelligence. FREDERIC VERN.—A petition is in course of signature by the members of the Local Court and miners of the Black Lead, praying His Excellency the Acting-Governor to release Frederic Vern from imprisonment. Our readers   will remember that Vern was imprisoned at the last sessions for threatening langnage, in con- nection with some jumping disturbances at the Black Lead. The petitioners ask for his release on the ground of aggravating circumstances, and of Vern's having actually supported the New Regulations, in connection with which the disturbance occurred ; during which sup- port, he used the language which led to his conviction. FRENCHMAN'S LEAD.—Mr Wall, the sur- veyor for the Black Lead, Frenchman's, and White Horse, has resigned the survey orship of the first mentioned lead, theduties of the whole being more than he could dis charge ; and Mr Cusack has been proposed to the Local Court, by the miners of the Black Lead, for recommendation to the Exec...

LINTON'S, WARDY YALLOCK. (From our own Correspondent.) August 4th. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 August 1856

LINTON'S, WARDY YALLOCK. (From our own Correspondent.) August 4th. I hinted in my last letter that the police were   about to be removed from this place. I am sorry to say they are now gone to Brown's. I really think that great injustice has been done to the inhabitants. This is the way in which   we are rewarded for being a quiet and well dis-   posed community. As I anticipated numbers   are rushing here ; the Black Lead is teeming with parties from Ballarat, and great prepara- tions are being made for the erection of several more whims. The original whim parties have sent a petition to the Local Court, Ballarat, to have the same laws in force here as are applied to Sebastopol and Terrible Leads. The really deserve every encouragement, having been at a great outlay, and working like horses for the last twenty weeks, trying to overcome the water. At last, after loosing two or three shafts, by sinking 100 feet in the reef, and driv...

PHYSICAL LAW OF THE SABB. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 August 1856

[ PHYSICAL LAW OF THE SABBATH, j 1 WE have recently had occasion to express our TÎews on this subject, but wc are apprehensive, that under the guidance of an enlightened precedent there will yet be need for strong re in onstance. More than one corres pondent has complained of adventur ous outrages on the quiet of the day on the part of contractors. It is much to bc desired that these outrages should not grow into fashion, for when once vicious practices have gained a a footing it is not easy to correct them. We have already said that we do not profess to consider the Sabbath in its theological, or rather, in its strictly religious light. In fact we avoid so viewing it, not from indifférence to that aspect of it, but simply because it would not well comport with our class of journalism. We must, there fore, entirely relinquish that branch of the subject to those whose duty it is more especially to take it up. But there is another and a general sense in which we deem the subject still...

THE STAR. TUESDAY, 12th AUGUST, 1856. OUR CANDIDATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 August 1856

THE STAB, j TUESDAY, 12th AUGUST, 1856. j OUR CANDIDATES. j ! THE Legislative careers of Messrs. Humffiray and Lalor present a most marked difference. These gentlemen are, in fact, the types of extreme classes of public men ; who, whether from deliberation or temperament, adopt most dissimilar lines of action. The men of one of these classes are ever on the move-they must be saying or doing something. Those of the other class appear to say and do as little as possible. Each line of policy has its peculiar advantage and draw backs. In the one case the multitude of words and the ceaseless activity must of necessity include much that is good; while of equal necessity they must include much that is aimless, crude, or of questionable benefit. In the other case, the caution or indo- j lenee which prevails saves committal j on points of debatable policy, while it ! often binders from action when it j should not. The public man of the one class lays himself open to censure on the score of s...

CAPITAL IN MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 August 1856

CAPITAL Di MINING. THESE still lingers here an unwar rantable prejudice and hostility to any efficient introduction of capital in mi ning operations. By parties espousing this notion innumerable futile objec tions are urged; fear has aided a blind selfishness in fabricating unreal evils, and every essential requisite for a fair j application of capital bas been cap tiously denounced as an infringement. and betrayal of individual rights. As we are satisfied tba! this ill-advised judgment is unfounded in reason and justice, and is working much injury to diggers themselves, as well as seriously impeding thc proper prosperity of the district and colony, we feel it incum- j bent on us to recur to the subject again j and again, that by placing it in thc various lights we may diffuse a juster estimate of it. While the diggers here are foolishly disputing the right and policy of this measure, other gold fields are leaving us quietly in the shade, by unhesitatingly adopting it principles. Ye...
