LETTER TO THE EDITOR. THE ROWING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 27 January 1865

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. THE ROWING CLUB. SIR,-It was with considerable surprise that I read in the report of the proceedings of the meeting of the various Rowing Clubs of Ballarat, held on Monday evening, that the members comprising the meeting pledged themselves not to row for any of the trophies to be competed for at the Ballarat Regatta of 10th February. Now, on behalf of the Ariel Club, a number of the members of which were present, I beg to give such a statement the most unqualified denial, as it is our intention to enter for the ma- jority of the runs, and further that our Club feel perfectly satisfied with the steps taken by the Regatta Committee. Yours, &c. FREDEKICK J. BICKNELL Hon. Secretary Ariel Rowing Club. 24tn January.

THE CONFEDERATE WAR STEAMER SHENANDOAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 27 January 1865

THE CONFEDERATE WAR STEAMER SHENANDOAH. The Age reports as follows :-"On Wednesday the community were startled by the announcement that a Confederate war steamer was in the Bay. When sighted off Cape Otway in the morning, she was supposed to be the Royal Standard, fifty-two days out, from Liverpool, and was telegraphed as such at nine o'clock ; but the mistake was corrected by a telegram from the Heads at three in the after noon, and about half-past six in the evening, when   she dropped her anchor a short distance from the pier, there could be no further mistake about it. Our belligerent visitor is named the 'Shenandoah,' after that valley in Western Virginia where General Stonewall Jackson won so many victories. She is commanded by Captain James J. Waddell. Imme- diately on anchoring, Captain Waddell despatched his first lieutenant to wait upon his Excellency Sir Charles Darling, in order to apprise him of the ship's arrival and to explain the reason of her visit.

NEW SOUTH WALES. SiDHBT, 27th January. I Hú Excellency the Governor opened Parliament in person to-day. The vice-regal speech took forty minâtes to read. There was no policy indicated by it.

COUNTRY MARKTET. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 28 January 1865

COUNTRY MARKTET CASTLEMAINE--New flour introduced to the market has been sold for £24; old flour rules £1 higher; the other sorts are a shade lower since last week, but are held steadily at the prices given below. Tea and sugai are very unsettled since the announcement of the tariff. All articles affected by the new duties are relieved from bond at the new tariff scale, a bond being accepted from the merchants as security for a further demand being made in case of the proposed tariff being rejected. The articles enumerated for reduced duties are to that extent lowered, if kerosene be excepted, which remains unaltered notwithstanding the 6d duty put on.-M. A. Mail, 27th January.

PROTECTION VERSUS FREE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 28 January 1865

j PROTECTION VERSUS FREE TRADE. SIB,-The Committee of the Legislative Assem bly appointed to enquire into the effect of the pro tective duties on tobacco, cigars, spirits and beer, bave just brought in their report. In this report a statement is made which ia without parallel in the annals of Protection, and which if it can be substan tiated, will settle all controversy and make an end ot Free-trade and Free-traders for ever. . The com mittee "have arrived at the conclusion that the imposition of these duties bas led largely to the investment of capital, the employment of labor, and. a decrtatt in the cort to the contumtr of tie articles manufactured." The first part of the Committee's conclusion is by no means so wonderful as they appear to think. That certain traders who have not only the ordin ary profits of business,' but also the especial privi lege of intercepting a sum of money which should go into the public treasury and. putting it into their own pockets, should " invest ca...

The weather iras better than on the previous day, but there was a little less wind blowing, so the dust was not so troublesome isa on the first day of the races. In spite of the heat of the weather, the attendance was quite as good as on Thursday, and the grand stand and the booths were all well patronised. The luncheon provided at the grand stand booth by Mr Walker, of Bridge street wai also pretty-well honored by the attentions of those who were not zoo much absorbed in the special events of the day to find now and then an interval for the pleasures of the restaurateur's table, supple mented by the potables supplied by host Cherry. We noticed a larger sprinkling of private carriages than on the previous day, and the grand stand was ra cher more crowded. Also of amnsempnts, so called, there was no stin...

I am not willing to attribute any wrong motives to those gentlemen tn wishing to be elected-they are all doubtless honorable men, but like Caesar's wife, they should be above suspicion, and as such, resign their office, or their contract, since their present position is equivocal-a violation of the rule of equity, and contrary to the spirit of a true cituten.

Mr Riddell asked the Commissioner of Bonds and Bridges, whetber, in the event of the vote for JE500 a mile for main roads being passed, the increased subsidy will bs paid for main roads now in course of construction.

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE, SATURDAY, 28TH JANUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 28 January 1865

Ik fjallawt MM. DAILY ISSUE, j SATURDAY, 28TH JANUARY, 1865. THE number of able, learned, and experienced public men in the colony of Victoria is not large, and we cannot afford to lose one of tbe few. Yet we are threatened with the loss of one of tbe best of them. Mr Michie, as a member of the present Administration, finds himself in a position which in a well-regu lated community would be fatal to the reputation of a politician, for while he is a free trader his colleagues have introduced a protection policy. Are we to lose Mr Michie ? Is he to disappear altogether from the political arena? He ought to do, if there be such a deity as a political Nemesis on duty in Victoria (of which we expressed some doubt in a recent article), for he expresses himself strongly in favor of free trade, while he bolsters up the ' protection policy of his colleagues. We sincerely hope that we are not to lose him, though it is not easy to see how he is to retain his place as a trusted and esteemed Vic...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 28 January 1865

NEWS AND NOTES. We are pleased to learn that a movement is on foot to get np a demonstration in Ballarat in opposi- tion to the protective tariff of the Government. It is scarcely creditable to Ballarat that this has been so long delayed. We report in another column particulars of the second day's events in the Miners' Races, which were as successful as on the first day. We regret to have to announce that Perkins and Harden, the riders of Geordie and Ringtail respectively, were thrown in the Hurdle Race and very seriously in- jured. Ringtail fell at the first hurdle, and Geordie tumbled upon him, the riders both receiving such severe injuries that it was thought both would would hardly rally, Perkins was carried into the saddling paddock pulseless, and Harden, though really less hurt apparently, presented a much worse appearance, as his right temple and mouth were cut and bruised and swollen very extensively. Dr Nicholson, who was on the ground, was in attendance, immediately, and a...

The impression strengthens that with some alterations Government will carry their propositions. In flour and grain there is a moderate but steady dem...
