THE STAR. THURSDAY, 18th SEPTEMBERR, 1856. THE RAILWAY ROUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 September 1856
THE STAR. THURSDAY, 18 SEPTÈMBER, 1856. THE RAILWAY ROUTE THE line of the proposed railway between Geelong and Ballarat has, to a certain extent, been decided on by the government. "Between Geelong" and Meredith, we learn that the route is definitely fixed on, and that there is &nbsp; every probability of tenders being im mediately called, for the execution of that portion of the work. The country between Meredith and Ballarat is of a more impracticable nature, in an engineering point of view, and the government has very wisely, we think, deferred their final decision of the course which shall be taken between those points. The line proposed by the Surveyor ¡ -General takes a direction north by west from the Burnt Bridge to the eastern base of Mount Buninyong, it then reaches the township here by an awk &nbsp; ward curve, which leads it close to the foot of Mount Warrenheip. Why this detour is made it is difficult to say. It leads through a district without &...
SITE FOR THE GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 18 September 1856
SITE FOR THE GAOL. Yesterday evening, a meeting was held at the Council Chambers to determine on the site for the erection of the Ballarat gaol and court house. J. Oddie, Esq., J.P., occupied the Chair. The meeting was very well and res- pectably attended. Mr Ocock moved the first resolution, and expressed himself in favor of the site opposite the Clarendon Hotel, for the erection of a court house and gaol. The resolution was - That this meeting considers the site origi- nally selected by the government, viz., opposite the Clarendon Hotel, to be the most desirable, for these buildings, and would respectfully urge their erection with all possible despatch." Mr Bath supported the resolution, and said that the proposed site was near a stone quarry where the prisoners might be bene- ficially employed. Mr Walsh supported the resolution and said the only two sites now available were, first, that opposite the Clarendon Hotel, and secondly that on the Soldier's Hill. Mr Walsh then proceeded...

VICTORIAN GOLDFIELDS. I now give voa an account of the Tarran gower gold-field. Maldon, the village of Tar rangower, is twelve miles to the west of Castle maine, the road passing through Muckleford, where there is a good deal of land under tillage. The «lluvial diggings have been very rich, and they still yield a fair quantity of gold dust to the Chinese, who work the old. ground steadily ; indeed, it may be said, that these lands are wholly in their own hands. I saw but a very few Europeans working on any portion of them. The quartz veins are numerous. Several dif ferent veins have been'extensively worked, and there are seven or eight places on their course yielding a handsome return. Where they are worked, the reefs are angularly rich and even in their character. For the reasons I gave in my first letter I am unable to state what the quartz would yield generally, but I think I may say very safely, that ute average yield of what is taken to the mills, is not less than ten ozs. to t...

HOMES OF THE ANGELS. j I (From the Boston Olive Branch./ "j JJ raw your thoughts from this world so full of sorrows, this dark earth, where, throw the glitter of poesy over it as you will, sin curses every object however beautiful ; where misery stalks by with its bleak face and lean limbs ; where sickness breathes in stifled cham bers, and death rides on every breeze ; " gaze from this point of clashing inte rests, jealous rivalries, and destroying hate, to the calm stars that stand in the blue ether, far, fer over the highest range of thought.
