WHAT WAS DOING A CENTURY SINCE. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 19 January 1865

WHAT WAS DOING A CENTURY SINCE. I. It ia seldom that any one feels disposed to ransack I ! newspapers npon which some degree of age has passed, and the indisposition seems to hold -close re lationship to the carelessness shown as to the pre servation of any, aged or recent, so soon as their immediate parpóse is served. Indeed, excepting in j public libraries, newspapers seldom meet with a spating hand, and even when there conserved with I the utmost care, repose long enough before any one I is adventurous enough to peruse them. The his torian may in process of time toke down the hies from their shelves and blow the dust from off then tops with the reverence that ia their doe as the mirrors of the date they bear, but until he unfolds their curious stories and invests with interest the dissimilarities they present as compared with the incidents of amore recent day, the old file of a news paper almost naturally remains an unco nani ted store of information, lt so happens that a century...

THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 19 January 1865

THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. The struggle for the Presidency has, of course,   been the all-absorbing event of the month, and all the military and naval movements which have taken   place of late have been instigated by Mr Lincoln's electoral necessities. 'To be, or not to be," de   pended mainly on the success or failure of his gene rals in the field and his admirals on the rivers. A series of Federal disasters, or even a long continuance of Northern inaction, would have inevitably im perilled Old Abe'e re-election. The credit of the ad   ministration a few months ago was deplorably low,   and the Democrats were having it all their own way. There was a serious schism in the Republican ranks, and many of Mr Lincoln's old friends were falling from his side. His prospects were gloomy in the extreme. That would never do. Something must be done to recover prestige, and win back alienated friends. What that something was is no...

COUNTRY MARKET. ARARAT. —Flour has advanced considerably in price   since the date of our last report, the quotation for genuine Adelaide flour now being $32 per ton, and for Chilian|£27; there is every prospect of rise, and dealers anticipate a considerable advance from the prospects presented by the Australian harvests. Yesterday quan- tities of potatoes were bought off the drays at £6 per ton, but this is rather under the market figure, the low- ness of the price being consequent on a suddenly in- creased supply, the market value is about £6 to £7 per ton. The following products are steady at the prices annexed— Hay £4, chaff £5, oats 4s 6d. There is no pollard or bran in the market; onions are scarce at 18s. In dairy produce there exists every prospect of a firm advance. Eggs are worth from 1s 3d to 1s 4d, butter 1s to 1s 3d, cheese 6d to 9d.-Advertiser, 17th January.
