THE SLOW RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 13 September 1856

I THE SLOW" RAILWAY. j It is now some time since the Fortland Road j Board commenced correspondence with tho Melbourne Government on the subject of a Portland Tram or Bail Boad. We are curious to -know how mach nearer Portland is to the attainment of its object than it was months or eren years ago. Thc last proceeding in tins matter that we know of, was a communication from the Portland Boad Board to the Com missioner of Public Works correcting a state ment from that functionary to the effect that a preliminary surrey of a linc for a tramroad had been made. The Commissioner of Public Works alluded although " he did not vouchsafe particulars on the subject-to a sur vey once made by a Mr Bage. This survey, however, was not a line for a railway; but was a survey chiefly of thc present Une of road from Fortland tc Hamilton. It was therefore communicated to the Commissioner of Public j Works that this survey was of no service for j the requirements of a railroad. To that com- J municatio...

MELBOURNE. (From our own Correspondent.) 7th September. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 13 September 1856

MELBOURNE. j (Prom »ur own Correspondent.) 7üi September. The election struggles are yti^Hng in -varions directions manifesta tiona of selfish ness in regard to local .interests, which are not very creditable to the public spirit of the electors. The choice of men upon whom to confer legislative honors should bc made on broad and comprehensive principles. If only men of uprightness of purpose, and of sufficient grasp of intellect, were sent into the new Parliament, there would be no danger of the interests of one locality being cared for at the expense of those of another, and no other should be elicited on any terms. ¿It is a very easy thing for a candidate to pander to the sel fishness of any particular constituency, to tell them their particular support is unmis takeably marked out by nature .for the ca pital of Victoria ; that hitherto they have been shamefully neglected, &c, but elec tors would do well to recollect that such are not the tactics which a man of high princ...

THE EET^itH, PALME» TO LORD CHIEF JUS- | TICE CAMPBELL. Among the not least remarkable features of this extraordinary case is the publication of a . pamphlet by Palmer's brother, a clergyman in Staffordshire, in which he strenuously advo cates thc canse of thc convict, defends his in nocence, and endeavors to prove by arguments, and show by fact that he is not guilty. The pamphlet bears as a motto, " Now let reason, not passion be thy guide," and it is entitled, " A Letter to the Lord Chief Justice Camp bell, containing Scmarks upon the Prosecution and Judges, .wuk Strictures on the Charge deli vered to the Jury, ülustrative of its dangerous tendencies to the long enjoyed rights and privi leges of¿r$Qglishmen.

[ CRESWICK. j (From our own Correspondent.) Sept, 11th.   Messrs Simson, P. Thompson, and Allan, three candidates for the North Western Province, met the electors last evening at Anthony's Hotel. The room was well filled -the squatters of the district mustering   strongly. Mr Lewers presided, who after a few observations introduced Mr Simson   to the meeting. Mr Simson commenced his observations by congratulating the people on the privi lege they possessed, and calling upon them to exercise their rights as citizens in a manly and independent manner, for the benefit of themselves and future genera tions. It appeared from his address, which lasted about three quarters of an hour, that this gentleman is in favor of the na tional system of education, of State-Aid to Religion, of a military force in the colony, of law reform, and of the throwing open of the lands, that he is against the Chinese tax, considering that they would be a be nefit to the c...

Two vessels laden with flour have also arrived-one from San Francisco, thc other from Taleahnano-bringing, together, 1,000 tons. The effect of such large quantities of goods arriving together, to a market previously Ly no means brist, has caused something like suspension of trade, holders being generally finn, and feeling confident of the inland trade .soon requiring very large supplies, do not seem disposed to submit the new goods to reduced ? prices ; while buyers do not, with such sud denly increased stocks before them, feel inclined to purchase unless at lower figures than past quotations.
