The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 4TH JANUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 4 January 1865

The Ballarat Star DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 4TH JANUARY, 1865. THE offensive and defensive alliance existing   between the Northern States of America and Russia has already brought forth fruit worthy of the connection. A small newspaper, en- titled The Echo of Poland, published in New York, contains a letter from Mr Reverdie Johnson, member for Chicago and West Troy, U.S., stating that he had presented to the Legislature a petition, on the 22nd of June, 1864, from the Polish citizens of the United States, as follows : " It cannot be unknown to your honorable body that the Kingdom of Poland has been now for more than a year waging war with the Empire of Russia for the re-establishment of the ancient sovereignty and independence of the Polish nation. Before the commencement of said war, many Poles by birth were by the conscription laws of Russia, and in   obedience to superior force compelled to become soldiers in the Russian army, and sailors in the Russían na...

COUNTRY MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 4 January 1865

COUNTRY MARKET. SANDHURST.-The holidays have had the usual quiet   effect on business during the past week. Since Monday   last the flour market has had an upward tendency, the   advance above last week's quotations being now quoted at from £1 to £1 10s per ton. There is a degree of firmness in the article at present that will probably maintain the price for some time. The prices of most other articles remain unaltered. A slackness in trade just at the present time may be accounted for by the fact that business people are mostly engaged in the usual stock-taking. Messrs Benson and Co report -Although the early portion of the week was pretty generally de- voted to holiday making the last few days have wit- nessed a considerable amount of activity. Colonial wines, spirits, and bottled porter have been in more request. A brisk business has been done in provisions and a variety of miscellaneous stores. Household fur- niture has realised fair prices...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 4 January 1865

NEWS AND NOTES. On Tuesday it was our unpleasant duty to report   that Mr Dugald Grant, of Lydiard street, had sus-   tained very serious injury on the previous night,   through a collision of two conveyances in Sturt street. It is now our painful task to report that Mr Grant died of the injuries sustained, about noon on Tuesday. At nearly midnight on Monday, when yesterday's paragraph was written, the injured man was insensible, and in a condition which left little reason to hope for his recovery. About three   o'clock on Tuesday morning he recovered conscious- ness, and fully aware, that his end was near, he   requested Dr Whitcombe to prepare a will disposing of his property, which was prepared and signed, Mr   Mackay, of the London Chartered Bank, and Mr A.   C. Kerr being appointed trustees. From the time the will was executed until his death, Mr Grant re-   mained sensible. ...

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 5TH JANUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 5 January 1865

_DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 5TH JANUARY, 1865. SINCE the new year commenced many of our contemporaries of the metropolitan and pro vincial Press have indulged in a backward glance at the events of the year Just closed, adding slight disquisitions on the present condition of the colony and the prospects with which the year 1865 enters upon its career in every case, it is pleasant to observe, with a degree of quiet content and moderate exulta tion only possible under the actual present , circumstances of the country. When journals of all shades of political opinion agree in admitting or alleging that the country is in a reasonably prosperous condition-that the past year has been a good one, while the new promises to be still better-it may safely be concluded that there is not much cause for complaint as to the past or anxiety as to the future. Falling in, then, with the humor of our contemporaries, which we are gratified at being able to do in all sincerity, we also congratulate the count...
