SUMMARY OF HOME NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 28 August 1856

SrMMAHT OF HOKE SEWS. j uur miicrences wren America nave at last as- j ! 6umed a shape which puts an end to negotia ! tion. Whether war will follow is another and j a very ditfereut consideration. I The Washington Cabinet has taten the i initiative on the two questions at issue. It has j ¡ recognised the Government of Don Patricio j I llivas, the tool of Walker ; and it has dismissed ! Mr Crampton, the British Minister. We are j j not called upon to declare war in consequence of either of these acts, but it will require very j adroit management and much forbearance to I avert that extremity. j With respect to Mr Crampton, official intelli gence of his dismissal has not reached this country up to thc present moment. But no reasonable doubt can exist that it has taken place ; and wc may probably be in possession of an authenitic confirmation of the fact before we go to press. It appears from the answer to Lord Clarendon's last despatch, stated to be in preparation by Mr Marcy-the subs...

LINTON'S, WARDY YALLOCK. (From our own Correspondent.) August 25th. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 28 August 1856

LINTON'S, WARDT YALLOCK. ! {From eur own Correspondent.) August 25th. Since my last communication a wonderful change has taken place in the affairs of this lo cality. A mousier rush has set in to the Black Hill, about four miles from Linton Proper, and about equi-distant from this place and Smythe's Creek. *From what I can learn it appears that a party of Englishmen settled down there last summer, and have been raining with pretty good results up to the time of the present rush. The Chinese were the first parties to rush the ground, and now an immense number are located there; it is computed that some 2000 mdividuals have arrived at thc Black Hill dur ing tiie past week ; and stores, shanties, baga telle rooms, and all the other accompaniments of a rush, are springing up like magic. Already the light-fingered gentry are practis - ing their arts, apparently with great success, for the wisdom of our authorities deprived us some time back of our small police force. Hardly a day passes ...

CRESWICK. (From our own Correspondent.) 22nd August. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 28 August 1856

CRESWICK. (From our own Correspondent.) 22nd August. T3n Thursday last, drowsy old Creswick was startled out of "its lazy slumbers by the sudden and unexpected appearance of something like 1,000 men, and evidently wending their way to tile Camp. Were they going to take it ? Was there another Ballarat revolution r Was it a party démonstration ? were some of the j many questions asked bf the momentarily ¡ alarmed inhabitants, but tte mystery was soon j explained. It was Local Court election day, ¡ and these 1,009 diggers were about to exercise-, | in a peaceful but organized and business ; like way, their rights. They had not come, however, from diggings adjacent to the Camp as ona would naturally have expected, but were Sulky Cully lads, most of whom bad but lately been mining at Balla rat, and had in this maimer determined to show practically what a little unity of purpose can effect, hence it appears that early the same morning a meeting had been held at Sulky, and six diggers ther...

THE STAR. THURSDAY, 28th AUGUST, 1856. LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 28 August 1856

THE STAR. THURSDAY, 28th AUGUST, 1856. LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. Ix a previous article under this head, we drew thc attention of our readers to the necessity which existed for the establishment of an institution devoted to the purposes of succour and relief for j the homeless and the destitute. j We instanced a case where a little boy had been found, homeless and friend less, in one of our thoroughfares at mid night, aná handed over to the keeping of the police, whose only method of affording relief was by formally charging him as a vagrant. There would have been something ludicrously ridiculous in arraigning an infant before the ma gistrate, and gravely accusing him of having no visible means of support, and and of being, therefore, a vagabond and vagrant by Act of Parliament, if it had not been th.at the circumstances were too sad and painful, and too suggestive of criminal neglect on our part to admit of any other emotions than those of compassion and regret. However, in tbe absence of...

EIGHTEEN DAYS' LATER ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 28 August 1856

- I EIGHTEEN DAYS' LATER E5TG LISS NEWS. j Captain Byrne, of the Marion, has I at last delivered up to the Argus, the English papers in his possession. The latest date is the lOtb. of June. The most important news seems to be a renewed and threatening complica tion of the American difficulty. The New York Herald has the following article on the relations between Great Britain and America : " The dismissal of Mr Crampton and the British Consuls, in defiance of the elaborate and ingenious defence of Lord Clarendon, and in view of the unsettled questions pending upou the Clayton-Bulwer treaty, and in connection with the recognition of the Valker-Itivas go vernment of Nicarag-ta, certainly complicates and erubarasscs our disputes with, the London Cabinet. " It will be remembered that this offensive proceeding is to be addressed to Lord Palmers ton, the most punctilious aristocrat in ali Eng land, and it is warranted in thc fact that Mr Crampton has violated tho neutrality laws of United...
