Local Intelligence   REDAN LEAD.- Upwards of fourteen claims are taken up on the " Victoria Terrace," on the hill, the opposite side of the creek from Mount   Pleasant. These claims are supposed to be on the lead coming from Mount Pleasant, which is : likely to be a good one. It has been named,   by the miners, the "Redan." On No. 4 claim     there is a flag bearing the newly adopted name   of the lead.

THE STAR. TUESDAY, 2nd SEPTEMBER, 1856. GOVERNMENT LAND POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 2 September 1856

¡ THE STAR, j j TUESDAY, 2nd SEPTEMBER, 1856. j ¡ GOVERNMENT LAND POLICY. \ I Ix alluding to this subject in our last ' issue, wc drew attention to the fact j of the government selling fine agri cultural land in the immédiate neigh ; borhood of this gold-field, in lots so , large as to place them beyond the j reach of intending agricultural set ¡ tiers. This is an evil sufficient of j itself to attract earnest enquiry to the ' policy pursued by the Surveyor Gen eral : so lar as we can judge by that officer's proceedings in this neighbor hood, lie either little deserves the credit that has been heaped upon him for liberality in his mode of disposing of the lands, or he has - ii' liberally disposed-unwittingly been made the tool of some w hose particular interests are opposed to those of the colony at large.

THE DESTITUTE. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 September 1856

j THE DESTITUTE. j t (To the Editor of the Star.J j Sra,-The leading article in your issue of last j Thursday is deserving of a more than passing I meed of praise. The theme is one which should I be constantly kept before your readers, until it j shall haye impressed upon them the necessity j there exists of averting the dangerous evils it i so truthfully and graphically depicts. j It is suipising, however, that toe charitable and humane should have continued in such a state of listless apathy, when such flagrant de linquencies (which might be diminished) are patent to every one-even thc most superficial observer, It would seem that the sacra fames ! auri has deadened every generous and noble I sentiment in this gold seeking community. Why have the Clergy-the guardians of morals, been so remiss in this behalf? They have not failed to do battle according to their might on the topic of education. It has been said that the cacoethes scribendi has seized some of the cloth : but in aidin...

BENDIGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 September 1856

! _ BENDIGO. ! The population of the ironstone Hill increases I I daily, anti the miners generally seem weE satis- j fied with their prospects or returns. The sink I ing increases in depth as the claims approach the top of the hill, and thc cement is very hard to go through. I have seen some cement (picked pieces, no doubt) perfectly studded with gold, obtained from a seventy-five foot shaft, and the owners possc£s about nine tons of ce ment, from which they expect a yield of twenty ounces to the ton. I have heard of two large finds this week, but as I cannot ascertain from what quarter thc report came, I forbear to re port them, but will endeavor to trace thc foun dation, and if correct, will give the intelligence in Saturday's Advertiser. The old Epsom is looking used up, but at the new rush on Mr BissflTs ground, consider able briskness prevail-, and the quantity of gold sailing is not on the decrease ; but this in a great measure is accounted for by the prox imity of the Ironsto...

It may be convenient in this inquiry to foliow the same order as we pursued on a recent occasion, and test the Government -measure by reference to the changes it proposes to introduce, first, as to the grounds of divorce or dissolution of marriage ; secondly, as to the procedure by which matrimonial and divot ce cases are to be determined. With regard to the grounds on which dissolution of marriage ought to be granted, we have already intimated our opinion : adultery, lengthened and wilful desertion, habitual and dangerous cruelty, should, in our judgment, en title the wife, as well as the husband, to insist on the dissolution of tbs marriaee bond.
