THE CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 January 1865
THE CBOPS. At Glendaruel, Mr Ivey has had a very fair crop of about SO acres of Talaveren and Toscan wheat. He finished tbe catting and stacking of 60 acres in four days and a half, with one of Henderson's back delivery reaping machines, assisted by ten binders and one driver. Mr Ivey speaks very highly of the machine, which he says has been four years at work. During this time it bas never cat less than SOO acres in a season, with one pair of horses, nor has it required any repairs but whst he could perform himself. Mr Ivey has about 180 acres of Tartarian oats, which appear in very good condition, with tbe inception of 30 acres of late-sown, which, though on the best soil on the farm, look very inferior, owing, it is believed, to the late unfavorable weather. Mr Charlton is cutting wheat and oats, both of which are very light.

THE LOST BOAT QUESTION. is tue Argus ol friday there is a long letter j signed " A. W.," on the subject of the loBt boat from the s.s.

THE THEATRE ROYAL OR TEMPERANCE HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 January 1865
THE THEATRE ROYAL ÖB TEMPÉRANCE HALL. The fortunés of the Theatre Boyal alias Tempe rance Hal), Sturt street, have somehow risen to the altitude of a local public question. As a sort of hattie between teetotallers and, publicans, listers of the drama and patrons of the drama, the question of who shall be the proprietors of the building basKor some time past excited a good deal of attention about town. The purchase of the'theatre from Messrs Howland and Lewis by the Temperance League, for £3000, took place on the 24th October hut, and was to be completed by the 7th November, *£1000 being paid on the purchase, and the League having possession at once. The League wished to get title 'under Torrens' Act, but the vendors said they! would give their own title, and the League could of course do what it pleased afterward«. How ever, what with discussions about transfer, correspond ence with lawyers and money-lenders, and examina tions of deeds, two months passed away. The vendors' solicitor...
The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 16TH JANUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 January 1865
DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, I6TH JANUABT, 1865. THE claim preferred by Ballarat to be selected as the scene of the next volunteer encamp ment, and the suitability of the place for the operations of soldiers who wish to learn what actual fighting is like, may deserve some fur ther notice at our hands. If the townsfolk really comprehend what is meant by having the encampment here the movement in furtherance of the claim will soon take a different form ' from that of s aote from a private person to one of the borough councils, and a possible shelving of the business by# reference ta the mayor with a request that he will confer with his brother mayor. The selection of Ballarat or its ] immediste neighborhood for the encampment ; means the spending of at least from £5000 to £10,000 in tho town during the period of the encampment. We are inclined to think that estimate is m all probability far below the mark. The m ere Battlers' charges for the supply of a camp of between 1000 and 2000 men will ...

MELBOURNE WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REVIEW. Melbourne, Saturday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 January 1865
MELBOURNE WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REVIEW. Melbourne, Saturday evening. liiere were no export entries on gold passed at the Customs day. The absence of the mail now several days overdue, has tended to produce more than ordinary dullness in the import market. A fair country trade has however been doing, but not of that character to impart any degree of firmness or buoyancy to the markets. Bread stuffs have considerably improved consequent on recent heavy purchases. Kerosene oil is lower and blasting ponder and quicksilver have also receded. Should the mail bring news of short shipments a better tone will be imparted to the markets, but in the present state of uncertainty in >rhich merchants are placed, but a trifling business can be looked forward to. Subjoined is our usual weekly review of the markets. Ales and porter, both in bulk and bottle, have been in fair demand, but prices have not varied much. For light summer ales of the best brands there has been some demand for export, and al...
