TARRANGOWER. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 September 1856

TARRANGOWER. The quartz ree& are being largely taken up the snccess which seems to be invariably attend ant on operations there encouraging continual prospecting. From a claim on Lisle's reef forty tons of quartz were taken, which yielded an aggregate of 700 ounces, and 100 ounces were lately obtained from considerably less than 1 two tons. The machinery employed in the I quartz workings at Tarrangower is more exton- j sive and powerful than in any other part of this district, and" it is no doubt owing to the ability of the owners to do their work effectively that such rich results reward the labor of the mi-; nen ; for it is frequently the case that through the use of inadequate machinery thc extraction of gold is very imperfectly accomplished. The quartz reefs in other parts of this district are beginning to attract an increased de gree of attention, and with the approach of summer they will probably be i actively worked. The great present drawback is thc want of machinery...

A SLAVE-HOLDING REPUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 September 1856

A SLAVE-HOLDING REPUBLIC. I Whenever any social system directly j and necessarily tends to dissolve so ciety and to destroy all confidence in the virtue and stability of public affairs, nothing can be clearer than that such a system must be inherently and in corrigibly wrong, and that the only safety is in removing it and substitut ing a better, The Anti-slavery writers have been charged with drawing cari catures of southern society, and calling them .true pictures ; with imputing to slave-owners an inhumanity not really proper to them, and to the condition of slaves a baseness, a degradation, and a suffering, which in comparatively few cases, were found to exist. Mrs Stowe has been said to be an ingenious warm hearted, but extravagant painter of men and things. Her " Uncle Tom " has had his picture drawn afresh with a view to correct his lineaments. Other writers of the same class have been equally charged with romance or extravagance. " Slavery," it is said, j " is neither so bad ...

NEW CHANNEL OF TRADE WITH CANADA. (From the Shipping and Mercantile Gazette, May 26.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 September 1856

NEW CHANNEL OF TRADE j WITH CANADA. fFrom the Shipping and Mercantile Gazette. May 2G.J lne recent rapid decline m the Canadian trade by the St. Lawrence, to which we took occasion to advert a j few days ago, is no doubt attributable, \ to some extent to the exertions made by the directors of the Grand Trunk Railway of Canada to draw the western trade over their line to the ocean ter minus on the Atlantic at Portland. The Americans, by their railways, turned the traffic of the Western States and Upper Canada across Lake Ontario into the States of New York and Boston, all of which previously had gano by the St. Lawrence to Quphefi and Montreal. The Reciprosity Treaty, and the system of Canadian railways now proceeding towards completion, are making another revolution in the course of the traffic ; and Portland has gone spiritedly in as a formidable op ponent to Boston and New York for ocean trade and internal traffic. The city of Portland seems destined ere long to be the Atlantic Po...

BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. Ballarat, 17th September. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 September 1856

BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. Ballarat, 17 th September. j Business of all kinds has improved this last week, and we think we may safe- 1 ly predict with the continuance of fine weather a fresh impulse to trade in general. It has been our opinion, frequently ex- I pressed, for some time past, that the trade of Ballarat, during the summer months, will be very brisk ; in this confidence we appear to be well supported by the pre- J paradons making all along oar principal thoroughfares. Un all hands do we see the enlargement of premises taking place, and new buildings arising. The market continues firm, though, from the great reduction in cattage, we are en abled to quote some articles at lower rates. There appears a desire on the part of some of our merchants to push off, at reduced prices, some of their old stocks. As the weather becomes warmer, the demand for liquors is increasing, yet prises are unaltered, ale especially is in greater demand. Groceries and Oilmen's stores are still rlÄeiTi...

Scarcely a week passes without an importation from Portland, Belfast, and Melbourne, in the shape of a candidate, or a touter for a candidate, for the Upper House. The citizens of 'Warrnambool, and farmers of Villiers and Heytesbury, were never more liberally treated to "soft sawder" than what they have been for the last two months. It is a remarkable fact too, that the aspirants for legislative distinctions never for a moment, even when most liberal to others, forget to apply a stout coat of the agreeable " sawder " to the first person singular. At present there are three candidates in the field for the Lower House, for Villiers and Heytesbury-Messrs. Duffy, Allen and Rutledge, (the Billy Rutledge of immortal memory). The latter gentleman's address was only issued a few days ago, and some doubts are ...

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 September 1856

ffîininq. SOLOMON tells us that pride goeth before de struction, and a haughty spirit before a faß; from which proposition we infer, that the best way to get through the world, safely and usefully, is not to think too much of our own precious selves. And this upon the common ground of our com mon fallibility. Human life is but a series of alternate blunders and good hits ; successes and failures; proprieties and improprieties ; and it is only by a succession of changes and reforms, that we slowly creep up the inclined plane of improvement towards the ultimatum of perfection. How thankful then should we bc'when the possibility of amendment is pointed oat to as, either as individuals or as corpora tions ; how penetrated with gratitude ought we to be if a fault be hinted, or dislike be insinu ated. Not, however, on Maw-worm's principle | of liking to be despised ; but by the frank and fearless instinct of honest purpose, which says, " I aim at perfection, tell me my faults." The moment...

"LOOKING BEFORE AND AFTER." [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 September 1856

"LOOKING BEFORE AND AFTER." In times of political excitement perhaps people have no right to be miserable. The un- j lucky digger should feel not Ithe gnawings of i hunger, neither should the storekeeper regard j the pressure of creditors. It is no man's duty to ask thc simple question whether forty pounds a ton is too much to pay for flour, when m Mel bourne it costs twenty poinds,-or ten pounds fer potatoes, when three pounds is the price current in the metropolis. What is it to any body that sixteen pounds a ton is too little to remunerate carters for wading up to the middle in filth from Melbourne to Ballarat? The government hasa surplus. It is no fault of Grimes' The Government has forty thou I sand pounds, or more, lying in the banks. Kot ; unproductive.
