By the arrival of the Heather Bell at Ho bart Town, we have news from England to the 22nd of May. THE NEW GO VERNOR OF VICTORIA. j The Times of May 21st 6ays:-Sir Henry j Barkly is to be the new Governor of Victoria, After having passed seven years in the West Indies, and conducted the government of two Í important colonies with eminent success at a critical period, he will almost immediately re turn to England and receive his appointment to the charge of the new and wealthy society which has lately sprung into existence on the shores of Australia. We may, without the least pos sible affectation of prophecy, say that thc vast and singular emigration of the last few years has planted on the Australian continent com munities which are dcstnwd to become one day a powerful nation.

Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 21 August 1856

Bxtowct*. I NOVEL QUARTZ - CRUSHING MA CHINE.-We understand that a gen tleman connected with the Bi' Arthur Gold Mining Co. has arrived in Castle maine, with a view of fixing upon a site for one of Dr. Collyer's triturating and 4» Trmlgnitinfipg mnoViinPfi - and that he is going about to gain information on the subject. The principle of Dr. Collyer's machine is novel, both in its action oí reducing the quartz to impal pable powder, and in its mode of amalgamation. The rock is rubbed to powder in two hollow basins of dif ferent sizes, by which action the gold is cleaned and deprived of any greasy substance by which it may be tested, and is thus better prepared for thc quicksilver. The powdered rock is carried on by water to an endless flan nel belt, slowly revolving ; against this is a brush to rub off all the coarse gold which falls into a reservoir. From thence the sand is carried to the amalgamating cylinders, whose surface is corrugated. The motion of these cylinders is very slow...

THE STAR. THURSDAY, 21st AUGUST, 1856. MR. HUMFFRAY AND THE STAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 21 August 1856

THE STAR. THURSDAY, 21st AUGUST, 1856. MR. HUMFFRAY AND THE STAR. AT the meeting of his supporters at the Stat Hotel, on Monday night, Mr Humffray met oar charges in a manner that quite accords with our estimate of bis character. He contradicted some, "misrepresented others, and glossed over those that he dared not reply to. In alluding to our strictures, in that part of his address where he says local in terests had his tirst attention, he kept from the point at issue altogether, and enquired whether a court-house, a cir cuit court, municipal institutions, and an electric telegraph, were for the be nefit ot a section of his constituents. We will assume, for the sake of argu ment, that these benefits were seemed to us through his exertions. But bow does this reply to our charge ? We did not state that he did nothing for the benefit of the whole of his constituents, or for the colony at large. Our words were, that it was unstatesman-like, that he committed a great blunder, and quite ...
