MONTEZUMA THEATRE. THE WILL AND THE WAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 August 1856

MONTEZUMA THEATRE. I THE WXXX AND THE VAT. j Bat for the novel circumstances in connexion : with the authorship and production of this i popular and interesting melodrama, we should be slow to notice it at any length. But, written ¡ or perhaps compiled, as it is, by Mr W. M. Brown, and principally enacted by the members of the Amateur Dramatic Society, it is proper ! to treat it, critically, with more leniency and encouragement than, otherwise, we should think it deserved. As most of our general readers who are likely to be interested in this notice have doubtless had the pleasure of witnessing one or more of the performances, we have the better excuse for refraining from going through thc complicated but telling incidents of the plot. We must say however that, with scarcely a single exception, the various events, characters, and tableaux, were brought out and sustained with more mi nuteness, success, and point, than we were pre pared to see at the Montezuma for many days to come.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE, j _ Saturday Evening, 16th AUg. j 'i Se estimated value of imports ts as this week j arno ut. ted to only £13,940, the principal items in which sum represent the remaining portion of the cargo of sugar " ex Plumstead," from Port Louis, consigned to Messrs Law, Dodd & Co. ; a considerable quantity of brandy ; and oae hundred tons of railway materials received ex Lightning from Liverpool. Th« week's exports have been chiefly limited to consignments to Tasmania, which are valued at £802. The total receipts at the customs have amounted to £4,316 Ils. lOd. Cartage to Ballarat to-day by horse teams, £14 10s., and by bullock teams, £13 per ton.

Poet's Corner. ORIGINAL. MISS NIGHTINGALE. STANZAS BY THE LATE LADY LOVELACE.

The following unfinished and fragmentary verses relate to one whom she warmly admired, and who herself appreciated the brighter portions of the character of "Ada." The anticipation of the career of Miss Nightingale, in the last stanza is, we are informed, almost prophetic.

THE STAR, j TUESDAY, 19th AUGUST, 1856. THE DAIRYMEN'S CASE. On Saturday last, a meeting (of which a detailed report will fae found in another column) of the Dairy men of this district, was held at the Red Lion Hotel, Township, for the purpose of endeavoring to put a stop to the impounding of dairy cattle, which some of the neighboring squatters have lately been carrying on to an unwarrantable extent. The subject though directly affecting the interests of only a small section of the community, is of considerable import ance, and affords a pretty fair illustra tion of how-even in the minutest details of the settlement of the colony -the so-called rights of the squatters interfere with the public good Messrs. Waldie and Winter, the offenders in this case, hold rons in the immediate neighborhood of Ballarat the home station of the former being about five miles to the north-west of j the Township-and that of the latter, i about four miles to the south-west.

Sir Charles Wood, in reply, observed that no steward was in attendance, that estimable officer, with his wife and family, having joined in the festivities of the day in a private ship off the Nab. He trusted, however, that the hon. member for Lambeth would find what ever he might require down stairs ; he meant below. Mr Spooner begged ta move for a return of the religion of the man at the helm. Mr Newdegate had great pleasure in seconding the motion. Lord John Bussell, as a friend of religious liberty ashore and afloat, would strenuously oppose that return. Suppose the man was a Muggletonian, was that any reason he should not know larbuard from starboard-or, in other words, his right hand from his left?

SCOTCH MARRIAGES. (From the Times[?]) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 August 1856

SCOTCH MARRIAGES. ¡ (From the Times,) \ HISTORY relates the discontent of tue Scots at the Act of Union. To the pa triots of that time Scotland seemed to have made a base surrender, and to have passed under a foreign yoke. The independence which the Plantagenet^ could not conquer, the zeal which had struggled against and overthrown the prelacy of the later Stuarts and their adopted country, had been bar tered away by a few traitors in the antechamber of Queen -Anne. Ja cob i tism revived, and the land was dis quieted for forty years. No party dissensions of England, even in those days of plots and impeachments, equalled in virulence the hatred between the Unionists and their greatly more nume rous opponents, who taunted them with having sold their country, and beiug ready to sell their church. It was notliing that Scotland, from a state of poverty-strickenisolation, became united to what was even then the richest coun try in the world. It was nothing that the Glasgow merchant might ...
