Open Column. "For the opinions of Correspondents expressed here we are not responsible; we give every phase of intelligently expressed opinion a place in this column, refusing no useful letter merely because its sentiments differ from our own."

(To the Editor of the Star.J SIB,-I have to thank yon for the inser tion in your valuable paper of my remarks in the case of your Melbourne correspon dent versus J. T. Smith. Esq. Your printer has made a slight error in the words ** good as any citizen in Mel bourne"-it was written *' as a citizen of the world," that is, a man of the world, one who does not dwell in heaven. His enemies have sneered at him as a saint and called or " printed" "him a hypo crite, whereas he never made any thing like a strict profession of religion. He never held himself up as a pattern of morality, and yet he bas tbs moral courage to challenge his enemies to point out the wrong in his character.

POLICE COURT. Tuesday, 9th September. (Before W. Turner. Esq., S. M., and S. Irwin, Esq., J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 September 1856

POLICE COURT.   Tuesday, 9th September. (Before W. Turner. Esq., S. M., and S. Irwin, Esq., J.P.) Charles Hoyle was brought up, charged with being a lunatic. Dre Stewart and Allison deposed that Hoyle was a dangerous lunatic and unfit to be at large. He was directed to be sent to Mel-   bourne gaol. George Colburn was charged with lunacy. Dr Allison stated that he believed the man to be suffering under delirium tremens, but re- quested that be might be remanded for some five or six days, in order that he might be able to form a more correct opinion as to his con- dition. The accused, however, gave so satisfactory an account of himself to the Bench that he was set at liberty, and left the Court observing that he was perfectly compos mentis. James Bush was fined 20s. or twenty-four   hours' imprisonment for being drunk and dis- orderly. James McKinnon was fined 20s, for obstruct- ing the footpath on the Township. Archibald Campbell was charged wi...

MELBOURNE. (From our own Correspondent.) Sept. 9th. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 September 1856

MELBOURNE. (Front our own Correspondent.) Sept 9th. The various candidates for the represen tation of thc City hare been so much before the public during the last few weeks, and have been-so fully reported, that it is at die same time difficult for them to say anything new, and difficult for the chronicler of events to Bay anything uew respecting them. Perhaps, however, an exception may be made in favor of the hon. the Attorney-General. That gentleman,-from the position he holds, from the part he has played in the past history of tile cob my, aud by reason of his talents and his inten sity of character,-commands attention on every occasion ; and he always furnishes material for discussion, and evokes either praise or censure. There is alway« sure to be an overflowing house when the posters \ announce that Mr Stawell has been cost for the principal part, and the performance, whatever its other fault, is never a tame or au insipid one.

SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 September 1856

SPAIN. Jí rom Spain we le-^ra that disturb ances have taken place at Vailadolid and Valencia, two points very distant from each other. The troops were called out, and did their duty. Tran quility, one despatch says, is re-estab lished, but another despatch would throw some doubt on that fact. The pretext for the disturbances was the : dearness of provisions, but it is sus pected that they had something of a Socialist character. Another despatch mentions that » demonstration having been anticipated at Seville of a Carlist character, the procession in honor of the Immaculate Conception was pro hibited, and the authorities required the clergy to remain within the churches.

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 September 1856

MINING As our mining operations extend and multi-   ply, and their ramifications intertwine with   almost every business and social relationship, new interests and new difficulties continually present themselves, and call for fresh adapta- tions of existing laws, or the framing of " new regulations." To meet this nearly incessant demand for le- gislation, we have a Local Court, consisting of nine members, elected twice a-year, and eligible for re-election. These nine gentlemen are at once legislators and administrators, originating all our mining laws, and adjudicating upon nearly all disputes arising amongst miners and persons interested pecuniarily in mining.   These local legislators must be working miners, and therefore must necessarily be in- terested specially in the affairs over which they thus preside, with a combination of influence altogether unprecedented. But such an in- vestment of power is not abstractedly inimical to the public w...

ITALY. (From the Times Correspondent, Turin.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 13 September 1856

I ITALY. I (From the Times Correspondent, Turin.) ' The Italian race, if the most brilliant, has certainly been one of the most ill-fated of which history makes mention. Thc fatal gift of beauty, to use the words of Filicaija, has been allotted to it ; and to it.no human glory has been refused. When supposed io have lost the genius for government and for war, it bc- I caníe-ihe centre of literature and the arts. Its influence, material or moral, has been felt all - over the world ; but though she civilised and converted, after having conquered it, Italy has not acquired political cohesion or political power, j She has not even obtained thc advantage pos sessed by a people .she once despised, and has never ceased to nate. She has had no confed erationlike thc States of Germany, nor even thc apparent combination of ancient Greece. She has long been thc aim of thc ambitious and thc prey of thc aggressor; and has been de spoiled in turn by Germany and France. A country which, ina united...

THE BUCKETFUL OF GOLD AT ALBANY ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 13 September 1856

THE BUCKETFUL OF GOLD AT ALBANY ISLAND. I In the Empire of Saturday last, at the close | I of the "shipping1 intelligence," there appears i ¡ the following startling announcement:- Í " Found gold on Albany Island, with a.pick j 1 and shovel, got a bucketful in an hour." This is part of the statement of Gysbort Verdoes, thc mate of thc schooner " Lightning," lost in Torres Straits while on a wrecking and trading voyage, having been fitted out at Singapore. Verdoes, it appears, was brought off by the na tives to a vessel which anchored at Mount Adolphus (in the immediate vicinity of Cape York) ; since the wreck he had been living for I two months on Albany Island, the scene of the 1 reported gold discovery. ! 4i A bucketful of geld in an hour" is enough to startle even those who recollect the discovery by aa aboriginal in the service of Dr. Kerr'ia June, 1851, of a mass of gold weighing a hundred and six pounds, to say nothing of sundry ponderous nuggets of thc precious metal since th...

THE STAR, j SATURDAY, 13th SEPTEMBER, 1856. LIGBTS AND SHADOWS. PEEHAPS it may be said of philanthropy as of freedom ; its " battle once begun, Though often fought, is ever -won." "We think the position tenable. Our faith in humanity induces the belief that, wherever the claims of the suffer ing and the fallen are made known, sympathy, responsive and practical, will impel, here one and there another, to come forward and assist in the allevia tion of the distresses of the unfortunate.

BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. Ballarat, 12th September. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 13 September 1856

BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. Ballarat, 12th September. \ There ù great dulness stOi in the demand for goods, bat we think it is to be attributed in the first place, to the fact that storekeepers in ge neral are waiting for nie season to advance a little farther before they lay in any considerable ] stock, and just at present there u some little uncertainty as to where will be the best site for 6torcs in connection With the new leads, still merchants and the public generally are looking farward with confidence to the summer months, believing that the trade of Ballarat wfll bc far better than it has ever been before. There is no alteration in the price of goods worthy of note, and from the tone of the mar ket, in town, we do not anticipate say reduction but such as will be consequent on lower rates of cartage. The reduction which has already taken place is not sufficient to induce mer chants to lower their prices, so that at present they ara the only parties benefited. SPIRITS arc unchanged...

They may flat ter themselves-we of Ballarat espe cially-on the unexampled importance with which their numbers, their neces sities, their practical intelligence, and their unequalled aggregate worth (in hard cash) to the colony generally, should unquestionably invest them. They may declaim at public meetings that they are very great folks indeed, and when hobnobbing each other after wards, they may interchange -mutual assurances of so interesting a fact.
