HAWKING WITHOUT A LICENSE. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 2 September 1856

, HAWKING WITHOUT A LICENSE, j [ (To the Editor of ike Star.) j S tit,-Permit me to draw your attention fco j tlie above practice, now carried on in and about > Ballarat, to a serious extent. I ask you Mr 1 Editor, is it fair in the Government td make a resident storekeeper pay £10 a year license, and \ at the same time allow the hawker to carry on his business without a license. It would not signify so much if they would stick to the ever lasting jewellery, but now they hawk round grocery goods,-even thc article of soap does not escape them, also, ironmongery, drapery, boots and shoes, and numerous other articles too numerous to mention. The above practice is unjust, and undermines the livelihood of the resident licensed storekeepers. If a digger undermines another's claim he is immediately made to pay for thc damage done. "What is-thc diiference in the two .cases? Simply, the one is protected in his rights, the other not. Hoping the justness of the cause, and the injury done to...

Commercial._j MELBOURNE WHOLESALE PIUCES I CUKitENT. I Argus Oliice, Saturday evening, j During the íew dava that have elapsed since our Ia=t review of the market the weather has ."been tiue and sultry. Notwithstanding- this there has been no revival in trade; indeed the week has been one of thc dullest of thc year.

MEN OF THE TIME. (From the Sydney Empire.) THOMAS CARLYLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 2 September 1856

MEN OF THE TIMK, j (From tte Sydney Empire J THOMAS CABtTLE. Thomas Carlyle, the great *' Censor of the Age," as his adulators are wont to entitle him, and, in truth, one of the most original thinkers of his time, was born in 1795, at Ecclefechan, a small village in Dumfriesshire, where his father-a man of intellect and ear nest religious feeling-held a small \ farm. He received the rudiments of ¡ his education at Annan. At the age of < fourteen he entered the University of Edinburgh, passing through a regular ?curriculum, and studying mathematics with no ordinary zeal under Professor Leslie. He would seem to have been originally intended for the Church ; but this was rather the choice of his pa rents than his own. He appears to have remained at the University up wards of seven years, spending his vacations among the hills and by the rivers of Dumfriesshire. Of his erl iege life little is known beyond the fact that bis habits were rather meditative than giegarious, "shunn...

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 2 September 1856

I CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. THE establishment of a Chamber of i Commerce on Ballarat is an event j which should not be passed over ! lightly. While discussing the claims of rival candidates for parliamentary honors, weighing the arguments for and against the remodelling of our Local Court Institutions, or watching the proceedings of the Survey depart ment we should not forget that our commercial interest is of the highest importance. Though to a great extent dependent, on the success of our min ing and agricultural interests,, and I modified by the doings of our legis lators, these same .interests and men are to a large degree influenced by the state of our commercial relations. We have no wish to institute an inquiry into the relative claims of the above-named interests as to priority of j importance ; for our present purpose i it is sufficient if it bs granted that the trading is one among the impor tant interests of the district. If we take the mining community, we find that now for m...

Thc inference I draw from so significant a fact happens to be of an alternative nature ; and, when stated, it will effectually place Mr Loader's antagonists between the horns of a' dilemma. It is just this-Either Mr Loader is a candidate so completely accomplished and every war fit, that his worst enemies cannot find a valid objection against him; or Mr Loader's worst enemies are ...
