The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 20TH JANUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 20 January 1865

The Ballarat Star DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 20TH JANUAB.Y, 1865. IN yielding to the reasonable demands of the free colonies of Australia in the matter of transportation, the Imperial Government might have done better in these two respects, namely, in putting an end to transportation at once, and in doing so with a good grace. For reasons over and over again advanced by the free colonies, and fully stated for them by the press of Great Britain, transportation to Australia could not be long persisted in, and both the public and the Government of the mother country saw readily enough the ccogency of our arguments, and the reason ableness of our remonstrances, and that our demands must be conceded. But officialism,   as apart from, or opposed to, statesmanship, stepped in with its vexations obstructiveness, and caused all the unpleasantness that has arisen in connection with this matter. Four   years ago, as now (to use the words of the Daily News), The British peop...

WEEKLY AGRICULTURAL, REPORT. Thursday Everting. The harvest may now fairly he deemed concluded, and new wheat and oats have reached the market. The yields of wheat vary much, though most i it is pronounced to he good, and no time is lost in secur ing the grain for flour, but millers . are na willing to give tiie extreme rate of 10s, except for parcels of rare excellence. On the northern plains of South Aus tralia the yield of wheat is about the same as it was last year, and at Tanunda the average is said to be about fifteen bushels an acre, while at Willunga tile yield is supposed to be about a quarter leas, and at other places the yield is given at six or eight bushels to the acre, many of the late fields having been injured by the red rust We have not not been able as yet to form a good idea of victorian * yields, but do not expect they will average inferiorly to those of the sister colony.
