SCEXB 2 j Hit Lists.-Citizens, &c. - Members of the j Local Court, &c. ! Enter.-The Baron and Don Loader, who look grimly at each other. Baron.-My fellow miners! I appear once more, To find the key of Legislative door. Bon Loadsr.-And good electors you behold in me, An anxious searcher for that self same key. Baron,-I come not here as one that is untried, For I've fought and battled by your side. Bon Loader.-Tes : battled oft, and oft cut many a caper : But all your battles have been fought oa paper, I knew a Chief, who, in his pride did say Unto Ins soldiers ready for the fray : " Now gallant army, rush upon the foe, And when you've gained the battle, let mc know." j Such, Chief, are you, and this you | once did bellow, For which, consult Carboni Rafaello. Baron.-Base miscreant, thou know'st nothing of the mines, Of drives, of slabbing, or of golden lines. How sayest thou, Baker ? Baker.-My lord, do not be hurt, All aro not miners in a miner's shirt.

Enter Don Loader. (Sings.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 30 August 1856

Enter Don Loader. ? Cv_I I "With members all ranged by my side ; j And in answer to several Members' calls I I made my first speech with pride. 1 I spoke of the roads of Ballarat, 1 And spouted on every theme ; Was eloquent quite upon this and on that, But awoke and found it a dream. (Speaks*) A dream ! as Shakespeare says, - " When dreams may come," And in reality turn out a hum. And yet 'tis whispered by some little fairy, That dreams may sometimes turn out con trary. This haughty Baron, I perchance may teach, That Ballarat is yet within my reach, His bold retainers of the Local Court May find in me but little food for sport ; Would I could meet them, and then, hand to haud, I'd try my luck with that ferocious band.

MONTEZUMA THEATRE. MACBETH. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 30 August 1856

MONTEZUMA THEATRE. uwT/Mot' uuu juavu&ui are, as yei, me only characters ia which Mr Stark has given us an opportunity of judging his proficiency in the high school of acting. .* Richard III." and *. Richelieu" are, just now, wholly out of our consideration, the former being a play as lamely made up as the person of its hero, and the Jatter, despite its fine writing, eftVcts, and points, merely a theatrical piece of work. Such (critically speaking) melodramatic affairs as "The Stranger," "Ingomar," "The Lady of Lyons," and "The Robbers," are unques tionably first-rate productions of their class, but their several heroes are hardly the cha racters we care to pick out for texts. Nor, unless we misinterpret the flight which Mr Stark aspires to soar to, will that gentleman consider the stand we take as otherwise than complimentary to himself. In general terms, we may say that Mr Stark*8 Macbeth was a highly finished em bodiment öfthat noble, sofoierly, royal, but fated character...

Some seventy persons assembled at seven o'clock, and J. Adams, Esq., storekeeper, of Buninyong oc cupied the chair. The proceedings of the meeting occupied a considerable time, and our space compels ns to give a mere outline of the proceedings. The chairman observed that in presiding at the present meeting he could not plead an ex cuse for the manner in which he might dis charged Ms duties as chairman, as that was not his first appearance on the stage. It was not the first time he had occupied the position which he did at that moment. The first copy that he had ever written was *' practice makes perfect," and he had no doubt that he should m time become perfect in the duties of a chair man. Mr Humffray...

THE STAR. SATURDAY, 30th AUGUST, 1856. THE LOCAL COURT AND THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 30 August 1856

THE STAR, j SATURDAY, 30tn AUGUST, 1856. THE LOCAL COURT AND THE ELECTIONS. TUE L'jcal Court of Ballarat, has, with out doubt, been the most successful example of the working of local insti tutions on the gold fields. While many of those on the other gold fields have, either deservedly sunk into contempt, or become altogether extinct, our Local Court has, on the whole, worked so successfully, as to have redeemed the miners from the reproach of being in capable of self-government. This success has not been altogether due to any liberal and enlightened legislation on the part of the members, or to any ability and disinterestedness with which they may have discharged their duties. It is due more to the confidence placed in the Court by the miners, and to their regarding it as a popular bulwark agaiust the evils from which we so long and so grievously Buffered. Any ciitic who, during the last fourteen months ventured to review the shortcomings ot the Court with se verity, was looked upo...

GOVERNMENT LAND POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 30 August 1856

GOVERNMENT LAND POLICY. | [ THE desire to possess a home has of j late become a perfect mania. Time ! was, when the gold-fields were in their heyday, and but few felt inclined to invest their savings in a fenn, pre ferring rather the lottery of gold min- | ing which so frequently turned out temptingly rich prizes. But those days have passed, the prizes are less fre quent than formerly, and now that the romance and excitement of a gold seeker's life are no more, men begin to consider whether their comfort and their interest as well, might not be better promoted by turning agricultu rists. The successful miner, be he more or less so, wishes to invest the proceeds of his last good claim, and the unsuccessful one wishes for a good claim that he may follow a simi lar course. Among all classes of miners we daily hear less expressions of a wish that they may make a " pile " and betake them to another land. As they become habituated to colonial life, despite its drawbacks they see so many c...

The other day, however, in compliance with a request from several respectable inhabitants of the Slaty Creek district, I attended the hall of justice, which by the way is the most ragged and dirtiest tent on Creswick, and found the court crammed with witnesses and defendants-the said defendants -having been summoned to ap pear and answer to the following horrible charge, viz.,-that they having once been fools enough to pay £100 for a publican's license, aud the year having expired, did wilfully and maliciously neglect to remove their signs from the gaze of the weary traveller, who, of course cannot obtain a glass of comfort anywhere on these moral di...
