THE AMERICAN FARMERS. —THEIR BUSINESS AND CHARACTER. (From the New York Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 16 September 1856

THE AMERICAN FARMERS. - I THEIR BUSÏKESS AND CHA RACTER, {From the Kew Tori- Herald.) The question, «Who was the first farmer ?" is very frequently asked and almost always answered, "Adam;" but I hare failed to find the proof either in sacred or profane history that Adam was a farmer. The Bible ac count is, that " God planted a garden eastward in Eden, And there he put the man whom he had formed." Hhe account ¿further «tates that, "out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the . sight and good for food. And the Lord God put the man into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it." These statements do not show that ! Adam ever did a " hand's turn " to- j ward cultivating the garden, or rais- j mg the crop that grew in it ; but, on the contrary, in violation of his in structions as gardener, he ate the fruit of a tree that he was forbidden to eat, and for this act of disobedience, and for his indolence, he was turned out into the wide world. The onl...

VICTORIA LABOUR MARKET, September 13th, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 16 September 1856

I VICTORIA LABOUR MARKET, | I September 13th, 1856. ] As the weather becomes more settled, and the roads improve, the demand for labor in creases-whilst the supply, unsupported by immigration, is gradually declining, and threatens shortly to fall very far short of the requirements of the market. The anticipated arrival of a ship-load of immigrants will no doubt effect a temporary improvement, but whilst railways and other public works absorb j such a large proportion of the available labour ' of the colony, at high rates of wages, it is vain 1 to expect any permanent relief from the present inefficient and limited system of immigration. 1 At present we experience comparatively little difficulty in procuring servants of any class, but it is easy to foresee that during the ensuing summer, labour will be scarce, and wages pro bably higher. . Shearers, &c, remain plentiful. Married couples, without families, are scarce, and in demand ; good female servants also not too numerous....

THE STAR. TUESDAY, 16th SEPTEMBER, 1856. BALLARAT HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 16 September 1856

J JTHE STAR. TUESDAY, 16th SEPTEMBER, 1856. BALLARAT HOSPITAL. WE paid a -visit to the Hospital a day or two since, and were delighted to witness the cleanliness, order, and general appearance of comfort and convenience in the general arrange ments of this important aud invaluable institution. The site on which the building is placed is airy and healthy, and commands an extensive view of the Township and the Flat, with the surrounding scenery ; the whole area enclosed within the Hospital fence is five acres. The first ward we visited was that appropriated to male patients on the ground floor, and which contains thirteen beds. The apartment looks out over the Township in front, is light and well ventilated - not an odour reminding one of the contiguity of sickness, disease, or drugs; or any of their too often unwelcome ac companiments. There were eight or nine patients in the ward when-we were there ; some reading, some sleeping, and some apparently suffer ing too much pain for eithe...

BUNINYONG. (From our own Correspondent.) 15th September. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 16 September 1856

I - < BUNINYONG. (From «ur oten Correspondent.1) _ 15th September. Buninyong, at the present, is undergoing alteration and gradual improvement. Mr Adams is erecting a large store in the centre of Buninyong, his present being rather out of the way, and other stores are in course of érection. There is also Mr Allen's j 6team flour mill, which is being rapidly proceeded with. But whilst the i people of Buninyong are doing all they can to raise their Township in importance, and to pro mote its interests, the government are allowing a building " to remain which, in itself, is a disgrace to the authorities, Sud a nuisance to those people who -are unfortu nately compelled to transact any business in it. 1 need hardly say that I ref er to the Court House, This wretched and dilapi dated bunding WAS originally erected by a man' who was a servant of Mr Porter, jan whose run it' "was placed' : at the time it was built. It answered the pur pose for which it was intended very well, and...

THE SCHOOLMASTER ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 16 September 1856

THE SCHOOLMASTER ABROAD. I IN aüuding lately to some strange electioneering manouvres, the Attor ney-General gave utterance to the expression that they were fair enough in these times. How far such a spirit pervades public men, we are quite'un able to imagine ; but the more we exa mine this wonderful Mining Rej.x>rt, ¡ the more are we reminded of this dic tum of the Attorney-General. May not some unscrupulous opponent have got hold of the heads of the evidence tendered to the Mining Committee, and after offering a premium to some one to make a mess of it, had it pub lished as a veritable state document, with the additional cruelty of attach ing to it, the signature of one who is about to enter on a contested election. " O that mine adversary would write a book," may in future be well sup planted, by " O that mine adversary would write a Mining Report." That the subject of the Report is an im portant one, and " calculated to con fer more benefit on the miners than anything yet att...

LITERARY NOTICES.     "We have received the third number of the Journal of Australasia, and we are glad to note that the reputation of this interesting serial is fully maintained by the issue of the current month.     The first article, Fiction fields of Australia, glances, and only glances at the large and un- occupied ground awaiting the " coming man" of genius to develop its latent wealth of romance, in the delineation of character, and in the tracing of the germination, budding,and   fruitage of incident and adventure in the many hard and changeful phases of colonial life.. Cortes there is " ample room and verge enough" for the revellings of fancy, as for the sterner, stranger, and more thrilling revealings of truth, in the history of Australian enterprise.

OVENS MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 September 1856

OVENS MINING. A few hundred men, more or less, scattered over the One, Two, and Three mile diggings make, to the casual observer, but a very aught difference. Thc resuscitation of business among the storekeepers and publicans, however, plainly ! evinces a considerable augmentation of popula tion within the past two weeks. Atme Bed Hill, between the Two and Three Mile, a num ber of fresh claims are in course of working ; all of them making something ; and as there are daily accessions to their number in this direc tion, from the conviction that (he "whereabout" of a golden lead is her« located, there is not the shadow of a doubt but this summer will see the bouleversement of all thc ground onward to the Six-Mile. Apropos of the Six-Mile, which was almost deserted in its vicinity, a number of new arrivals have, for the last fortnight, .with a praiseworthy acquisitiveness, been " faying it." The result of thc trial has evidently been a ver dict in its favor, many new tents and huts hav...
