M'Lellan -waa sure to be elected, peace contended, -and tile flag of the Union tom in two. Henceforth Mexico had nothing to fear, and Maximilian might sit in security on a throne raised by the French, and that the Americana, divided, were too weak to over throw. In England the patriots, and in France the Chanvisis rubbed their hands at the idea that their rival, the Republic of the United States, would lose the half of its importance in official regions ; they even foresaw the time when the Republic would disappear from the American continent.

Mfa mimt MM. DAILY ISSUE. SATURDAY, 2Isr JANUARY, 1865, So we are to Lave protection, after all. At last the veil has been drawn aside, and Ministers are disclosed in their true colors. For months past they have been a most irri tating puzzle to the world-in the matter of their economical policy. As the chameleon of the fable was green, bine, or white according as it was viewed in sunshine, in shade, or by candle-light, the Government has been for protection, for free trade, or for tarin7re vision according as this orthatone of its members had it in charge to expound its views. But now that the cat is fairly oat of the bag, it might be supposed that the color of its skin would be patent to the world. Not so, however. Ministers are staunch free traders, and yet they desire to raise £236,930 from protective duties during the. present year. On the other hand native industry is to be encouraged (for Mr Verdon announced that in deciding upon the new articles to be taxed Ministers " had i...

On the same charge Thomas Davis was fined 10s, or in default, twenty-four hours' imprisonment. (The Mayor here joined the Bench.) VAGRANCY.-An old man named David Rees, lately   discharged from the Benevolent Asylum, was charged with having no lawful visible means of support. He seemed to be very sickly and could barely walk in and out of court. He was remanded until Wednes- day in order that arrangements might be made for his re-admission, if necessary, into the Asylum. Another old man, named Butler, was sentenced to fourteen days' imprisonment for vagrancy. He had been before the court only a few days previously, when he was discharged with 5s from the poor box. This charity, however, was of little benefit to him, for he spent the whole amount in drink shortly afterwards. DAMAGING PROPE...

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 23RD JANUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 January 1865

DAILY ISSUE. MONDAY, 23RD JANUARY, 1865. IN considering the merits of the new finan cial scheme propounded by the Ministry, we are met at the very outset by these inquiries --Is there any real necessity for a radical change in our fiscal system, and if so, is the necessity so urgent as to warrant a violent - a revolutionary change? To the second query, we answer in the negative without the slightest hesitation. There is nothing in the state of the country to justify the impo sition of protective duties - nothing, indeed, view the matter which way we may, to ex cuse or palliate such a course. To do so would be to inflict a gross and wanton injury upon the country - to hang a millstone about its neck which would cripple its efforts and retard its progress in all time. In contem plating the possibility of Mr Verdon's scheme being adopted by Parliament, even this poor consolation is not left to us, that by and bye, when its evil tendency has been fully demon strated by experience, we ca...

NEWS AND NOTES. In another column we give the proposed new tariff and estimated revenue. Also, for the purpose of comparison, the tariff which it is sought to super sede, and the revenue that would probably have accrued through it, in the year 1865. An error of considerable importance was made in the list of the proposed new duties as circulated in the Assembly, on Thursday night. The items furniture, toys, turn ery, wooden ware, brushware, and wickerware,   appeared in the class of goods upon which a duty of 2s per cubic foot is to be levied, whereas they should   have appeared in the next class, the duty on these   articles being only 1s per cubic foot.   The drought which has lasted for so many weeks, to the detriment of root crops and the health of the public, was broken on Saturday afternoon by a heavy fall of rain accompanied with hail. The shower, however, did not last long enough to be of any great service, and we have not ...
