NATAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 August 1856

I NATAL. I By advices from Natal we have inteHigeace j to the 28th -of March- By the Natal Mercury j wo learn that the colonists there, like ourselves, ¡ are very busy with the land question, and with. I matters eccleäasticaL The land policy pro : claimed by the Local Government, under the direction of Sk George Grey, the Governor of the Gape and High Commissioner for promoting the Occupation of Crown Lands, appears to have be a altogether unsatisfactory,. The vast superiority of the native population over the whites in point of numbers-being about 50 to 1 throughout the district, and the almost total cessation of immigration, have ren dered the necessity of holding out avery prac ticable inducement for immigrants to settle ou the land so imperative, that the wonder is that even a branch of the ciroumlocution office could not initiate something more tempting in the shape of a land law than one having such con ditions as follow : That for the purposes of the defence of thc district I...

MELBOURNE. (From our own Correspondent.) August 10th. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 August 1856

MELBOURNE.     (From our own Correspondent.)   August 10th.   We have met with rather a disappointment to-day, in the arrival of a shep from England without news. The Governor Martin passed the Heads last night, and intelligence has just reached town that'she has not a single news paper on board of her. She sailed from Lon don on the 10th. May, and might have had at least four days later news. The Bed Jacket is now 82 days at sea, and is being looked for every hour. The adjourned meeting of the Central Pro vince liefern Association took place in the Amphitheatre, on Friday evening. There was again a great meeting-somewhere about fif teen hundred persons were present.

A RAILWAY DEBT. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 August 1856

A RAILWAY DEBT. j THESE are some-and we are not disposed to quarrel with them-who place the subject of internal communi cation in the van of all the questions that at presnt are agitating our little world of politics. The land they say may be opened up, and placed at the disposal of the people on the easiest terms, but what will it avail, when during six months of the year, the roads are impassable, and the gold fields-the best markets of the world rendered as useless to our farmers as though they were in Chinese Tartary. Perhaps these individuals may be put ting the cart before the horse. They may be endeavoring to make Murphy move Clarke, when the more natural coursé would be to give the regimental war-horse a jog, and take for granted that the line of communication would j be maintained. Be this as it may, j however, there is little doubt that one ; of the most important questions that ! can engage the attention of the colo- j nists, is that of internal communication, and we shal...

THE JAIL MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 August 1856

THE JAIL MYSTERY. \ [ WHEN -tenders were invited for the j erection of a portion of our new Jail the public in general, and those who in tended tendering in particular, were anxious to know where the building was to be erected; We were repeatedly asked if we knew aught of the matter, and we were forced to confess that after sundry unavailing inquiries in quarters likely to furnish the informa tion-the affair was a mystery. We referred our questioners to the local authorities ; they did not know. The matter dropped then, being apparently as incomprehensible as--as any other : Government business. j It turned out at length that a certain ! tender had been accepted, and that it was not from any of our well known Ballarat friends. The truth is, that though several Ballarat builders would have tendered had they been able to get the necessary information as to site, &c, they could not do so in the absence of such, information unless at a venture which they would not risk.

BENDIGO. I Thc Courier of tine Mines reports as follows : SYDNEY FLAT.-There is still a large and daily incre 'sing population on these workings, and although we do not hear of any recent keary finds, good wages are being generally made. Another rush has taken place this week to the right of the lead struck thu winter at the lower end of thc flat, and some hundreds of claims aie marked out, trending to the right, in the direction of Red Jacket. In what is re garded as the main lead in this new ground, for the first time to our knowledge in Sydney Flat, drift gravel has been struck about eight feet from thc surface, and as a matter of course the holes are wet-so much so that several shafts now going down are being slabbed. From thc bottom of one of these holes 3 oz 9 dwts wera taken. The sinking oa this lead is about twenty-five feet deep. There arc now four distinct loads traceable from the ground opened this winter ; two of these are trending north easterly, the other starts in a n...

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 14 August 1856

THE steady maintenance, during so long a I period, of that high escort return which has placed our gold-field in the front rank, affords us reasonable grounds for anticipating the reten tion of that proud position. There may have been fluctuations in our leads, and our hopes may have sometimes fal tered; our commercial progress may have at times beeu arrested, and a general gloom tempo rarily clouded our pathway ; yet through all th*se alterations of circumstances, we have never lost ground, but rather advanced. The prolific nature of the Ballarat field is not evidenced in the continuous discovery of new leads alone. Our old Unes are, at the present time, actually paying better, in some instances, than when they were first worked. Benefiting by the cavalier method of the earlier miners, those of the present day are reaping rich har vests left uugatkercd by the first and less experienced gold-seeker ; ¿nd thus we are, ever i and anon, electrified by hearing of some lucky j part}' put...

AUSTRIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 14 August 1856

ArSTlilA. Thc Times correspondent at Vienna writes : Tho notes which the StirdbaanPlcti'poten'iarics not lun<r since addressed to the Earl of Claren don an5 Count Walcwski has produced a most unpleasant impression, both on the Austrian Government anl on the military authorities in the Lombavdo-Yeuctian Kingdom. The fierce attacks which the Sardinian Minister-President has recently made on Austria have caused a great ferment in Northern and Central Italy ; but still Marshal Badetzky and bis generals do not apprehend that there will be any outbreak in the Austro-ltalian provinces. The news received in tliis city from Parma is very scanty, but assassination is as frequent now as it was before the Duchy was declared to be iu a state of siege. The tact is that the Italians, seeing no chance of any improvement in their political position, have become desperate, and set a singularly low value either on their own lives or on the lives of others. It is credibly stated that the Fre...
