LETTER TO THE EDITOR. THE TEMPERANCE HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 January 1865

LETTER TO THE EDITOR.     THE TEMPERANCE HALL.   Sir, - May I request you to insert this short letter? So many questions are daily put to me, as honorary secretary to the League, and so many very erroneous statements are made as to the proceedings in con- nection with the late Theatre Royal, that I wish to state, when the proper time arrives a "full, true,   and particular account," in the form of a pamphlet, will be published by me.   Yours, &c., W.BENSON. 19th January.     The number of visitors to the Ballarat East Public Library for the week ending Saturday,was nine       hundred and fifty-four.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. Star Office, Saturday evening [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 January 1865

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. Star Office, Saturday evening Tho trade of the district has been fair during the week, and collections up to average. Prices are very unsettled on account of the great doubt entertained on the tariff question, the general voice of the importing merchants being against the scheme of duties proposed by the Ministry. In some of tbs outlying districts the long continued dry weather has put a stop to gold wash- ing, and rain is much wanted. The flour market is firm with a good demand, prices being variously given from £24 to £25 10s per ton. Prime samples of old season's growth will bring the higher quotation, whilst that made from new wheat is worth a lower price. Wheat is freely changing hands at 9s per bushel. There is but a limited demand for imported bulk ales. Joule's is worth £9, other brands £7 10s to £8 10s per hhd. Bottled beers sell freely at former rates. In sugars the uncertainty of the duty has operated, and few parcels are ch...

WHOLESALE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday, 21st January. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 January 1865

WHOLESALE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday, 21st January. Messrs Mc DOWALL and GRAY report - Supply and demand for hay about equal price same as last week. Straw has been brought in more freely, but all cleared off each day, prices a shade lower. Oats very scarce during the early part of the week, which caused the price to advance from 4d to 6d per bushel, and during the latter part considerable quantities of new oats were brought forward, and for good samples 4s per bushel was obtained. Several parcels of new wheat changed hands duriog the week, and in many instances turned out too green and damp for milling, which caused a reduction in the price, and on this day millers declined to pay more than 8s 6d for best samples. Pota- toes, supply irregular. Barley, nil. Average prices for thc week:- Best hay, £3 10s to £4; straw, £1 10s to £2; oats, 3s 9d to 4s; wheat 8s 6d to 9s. Messrs J. V. TAME and Co. report - A generally improved tone in the market for horse- feed, and the supply, although s...

BALLARAT SHARE MARKET. Saturday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 January 1865

BALLARAT S SHARE MARKET. Saturday evening. Messrs WALSH, WERE and MOORE, and Mr S. GOUJON report- A large business transacted in this share market forthe closing week. A considerable amount of outside capital has been brought into the market for investment, owing in a great measure to the continued good yields of our principal mines, and has decidedly improved the tone of same. The week has been further signalised by the multiplicity of demands for various well thought of   stock, and the inadequate response to same by holders. Their sales for the week, and tho yields reported, are as follows:-United Extended Band of Hope Company's shares have been placed at £127, £128 and £130 terms; Koh-i-Noor, £59. £58, and 57; Great Extended, £32 10s, £33, and £34, terms; Royal Saxon, £20; Hand-in Hand, £140 and £146; Wendouree, £68; Essex, £65 10s and £72; St. George United, £25, £26, £30, £32, £35 10s, £36 and £37; Albion. £10 5s; United Red Jacket, £14, £14 2s 6d, £14 5s, £14 17s...

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. Saturday, 21st January. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 January 1865

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK. MARKET. Saturday, 21st January. MESSRS O'FAERELL AND SON report- Horses. -The market was crowded to-day with in- ferior horses. Out of upwards of 100 head offered at auction in our yards to-day there were not more than about 40 really useful horses to be met with. Medium and heavy draught colts are very scarce, and the few that have reached the market lately have fetched excel- lent prices. Strong upstanding hacks are selling well. In fact, useful horses of every class are in good demand, and will not fail to realise fair prices at any time during   this or the next two months. We sold one mob of light   and medium draught colts and fillies, from Warrnam- bool, at prices ranging from £12 to £28, averaging £20 16s. A great number of broken-in horses, chiefly in-   ferior, changed hands. We quote rough hacks, from £7 to £15; superior stylish do, £20 to £40; coachers and light harness horses generally, £10 to £20 ; medium drau...

MELBOURNE WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REVIEW. Melbourne, Saturday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 January 1865

MELBOURNE WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REVIEW. Melbourne, Saturday evening. Export entries were passed at the Customs to-day on 10,377 oz 6 dwt of gold, for shipment as follows, viz.:- 2001 oz 17 dwt per Mediator for London, and 8375 oz 9 dwt per Yorkshire for London. The past week has been a peculiarly dull one in the import market. In the earlier part of the week the absence of the mail effectually put a stop to general business, and since the publication of the new tariff arrangements, business has been at a complete stand- still. The news brought by the mail has not had a beneficial effect on the import market, the excess of shipments being very considerable. During the last day or two, the discussion of the new tariff has occupied the attention of mercantile men. It is all but univer- sally condemned, as it will prove almost destructive of the intercolonial trade of the port of Melbourne. In the face of the steps which are being taken by our neighbors in New South Wales and South Australi...

New oats   come but sparingly forward ; for prime samples 4s have been given readily, and 3s 9d for in...

NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, 21st January. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 January 1865

NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, 21st January. The Strathdon, arrived yesterday, reports that on 19th December she spoke the Forest Rights, ship, from London to Melbourne, 67 days out, in latitude 48 deg. south, longitude 24 deg. west. Arrived—Mary Miller, from Melbourne ; Eclipse, from Otago ; Fulton, man-of-war, from New Cale- donia. Our Melbourne correspondent writes : —The new   tariff is the all absorbing topic of conversation in commercial circles. The more it is discussed the more is it displeasing to commercial men, who, in addition to the dislike they have to its protectionist tendencies, find much fault with its inequalities. The heaviest burdens will fall on those least able to pay; for instance, a pair of heavy mining boots will be taxed as heavily as a dozen pair of the most valuable ladies' boots. American goods, such as tubs, buggies, &c, will be all but driven out of the market. A vigorous effort will be made to defeat, or at least modify the proposed al...

GOLDEN GATE EXTENDED COMPANY. STARTING MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 January 1865

GOLDEN GATE EXTENDED COMPANY.   STARTING MACHINERY.     Tbe engine of the Golden Gate Extended Gold Mining Company, near the Buninyong Racecourse, was started on Monday last, the 16th instant, and the ceremony of baptism performed in the presence of a goodly number of shareholders and others. This was most gracefully accomplished by Miss Williams, of Scotchman's Lead, daughter of the late legal and mining manager (also the engineer), who, when throwing a most beautifully embellished bottle of champagne to the flywheel, said, "Go and Prosper,   Princess Alexandria," amid the cheers of the spec- tators. Although the engine and pipes had been idle for some time, all went smoothly, tbe engine in good order, in fact the whole of the work on the claim has been finished in a workmanlike and sub- stantial manner. Of late the work has been con- ducted by Mr John Osborne, the present manager. It is expected that in about two months the groun...

WATERLOO COMPANY. STARTING THE MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 January 1865

WATERLOO COMPANY. STARTING THE MACHINERY.   The celebration ot the starting of the machinery of the Waterloo Company, Jerusalem Lead, took place on Friday afternoon. The day being fine, and a half-holiday in Ballarat, was the cause of the number of visitors being larger than usual on these occasions, there having been not fewer than 400 per- sons present, so that the provisions made by the directors, liberal though it was, was not by any means in excess of the demands made upon their hospitality. The new machinery consists of a winding engine of 15½ inch cylinder, by Tennant and Co., of Glasgow, with a stroke of 3 feet, boiler 24 feet by 6 feet 6 inches, two puddling machines of wood, lined with boilerplate, and a large tank. The whole of the work bas been substantially erected under the superintendence of Mr Palmer, the com pany's mining manager, the buildings being of a superior class. The engine works smoothly, with tbe exception of a little stiffness which will spee...

POLICE. DISTRICT COURT. Saturday, 2st January. (Before the Police Magistrate.   NICELY CAUGHT. - Thomas Wilson was charged with having been illegally on the premises of Mr   Dunk, hotelkeeper, Grenville street, at an early   hour that morning. The prosecutor deposed     that he had lost a quantity of beer from his cellar on Thursday night, and as the cellar was partly open on account of some alterations going on at the back of the hotel, he at once suspected that the thief had entered by this passage, and might repeat his visit on the following night. Accordingly he sat up and watched. About four o'clock on the following morning he heard a gushing sound, and believing it was the sound of beer running off, he made all haste round to the entrance. On looking in ob- served the prisoner filling a billy, which he after- wards emptied into a large bucket. The prisoner made the excuse that it was only a smail drop of beer he ...
