On every side hüls and vales in pleasant variety arrest the attention, producing thc one promi nent idea, that agriculture is steadily progres sing over the entire district of Barrabool, and that it will not be long, if the same stride is maintained in the Western District, ere tho sup ply of grain required for the wants of the colony wul be found. derivable, from internal sources, supposing the colony in its present circumstances, were able to compete with importers of the staple article of food.

MEDICAL DUES AND DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 July 1856
MEDICAL DUES AND DUTIES. ! There is always a per contra side in social life. Every transaction in the vast business of society must claim to be considered on the debtor and creditor principle. If we assert claims upon others, we have also ^obligations to., ac knowledge ; for if society mean "any thing, it means mutual dependence, mutual privileges, and mutual duties. It is not more true that all truth is ; harmonious and consistent, than that all legitimate privileges and interests accord and hang together, and that in their maintenance and protection the general wellbeing is promoted and secured. Recognising this truth, every en lightened community has thrown around its constituent members, whether in dividual or corporate, whether in their private or public capacity the agis of legislative protection. The laws which regulate the medical profession in Britain and in these Colonies are based upon this principle of conferring privileges, recognising rights, and declaring duties ; and...

LOCAL COÜßT. Tliursday, 17th July. L*rcscnt-James Dal jr, Esq., Chairman, Messrs. ] Gillies, Coleman, O'Connor, and Stoddart. M'Cowl v. Liddle.-Tins was a refusal to divide gold. The court decided that £2 10s was due to the complainant, and that the defendant should pay the costs. Brenton v Parker.-This was a refusal toJiufil -äre-terms or an agreement". " Mr Kainy appeared for the complainant, and Mr Trench for thc de fendant. Jasper Brauton deposed that he entered into an agreement with the defendant. The defendant refused now to fulfil its terms. Thc agreement set out that the complainant should receive a twenty-fourth share of the gold, clear of expenses. Since "the agreement was made the defendant said that the complainant must pay a full share of the expenses for washing. The w ashing was done by a machine, but if the gold had been washed in tubs complainant would have assisted in the washing. There were twelve men at work, as well as a whim.

MONTEZUMA THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 July 1856
I MONTEZUMA THEATRE. j Last night furnished quite sn gala occasion at the Montezuma, the performances being honored with the especial patronage of the Chairman and members of the Local Court, Ii will be np news therefore to say that the house was well filled in every part, and that all the actors and actress strove their utmost, and successfully too, to acquit themselves after their very best manner. The play selected for the occasion was " Feudal Times," a vigorously written, and (in these parts) : comparatively .unknown drama, the story of which is too long to tell_ Margar** JiUitotfik (Miss Goddard) is a charac ter drawn and filled up by a scholarly poet, who had evidently caught some of the rays of genius reflected from a near study of " Beatrice," the "Two Portias," and Scoffs "Bebecca." Miss Godard's picture of the fray, as beheld by her from the castle window, was a piece of powerful and chaste acting. In some parts, it reminded us of the classic days when Helen viewed the fi...

GOOD NEWS FROM FINGAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 July 1856
GOOD NEWS FEO M FINGAL. j j The Hobart Town Advertiser, iu au extraordi- \ uary, gives a report from their Fingal correspon dent He says :-Major's Creek still seems to give hope of something good, and is decidedly the favorite ground. 1 saw some beautiful gold obtained by three meu last week ; 1 should say there was uot less than 0 ozs. The quality is certaiuly supeiior to anything I have seen as yet, and resembles Ballarat gold very much ; there were three small nuggets amongst it, the largest, I think, would weigh 4 oz. 1 expect there will be a rush there iu a few days. Having seen the gold on the ground I can vouch for the truth of its having been obtained, bona fide, out of the meu's claim ou the Creek. 1 expect in my next to be able to give you a better account, and that there will, I have little doubt, be 00 ounces found next week. In every hole sunk there has been gold got, and I expect they will drop ou a large find very soou. Sharkey and Morrison's gullies are now getting w...

THE STAR. SATURDAY, 19th JULY, 1856 \ -,- i TEE EDUCATION QUESTION. THE Board of National Education for Victoria, provides for the re ligious instruction of the pupils at tending its schools, in a very simple and admirable manner. Recognis ing the insuperable difficulties that ^---woald be thrown in the way of any effective and comprehensive system, . by the jealousies of the different re ligious denominations, it very wisely excludes the teaching of doc trinal points of religion altogether from its educational course. It does not ignore religion however, as it ! is but too often charged with by its opponents ; it merely avoids those tenets about which so much .^difference of opinion exists among professing Christians ; the great ; Inndamental truths of Christianity i «re scattered through the pages of 'its class-books, and two of them re late1 entirely to Scripture History , ."-AS contained, in the Old and New t &lt; Testaments. !

MELBOURNE. (From our own Correspondent.) July, 17th. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 July 1856
I ÎOLBÔÛUNE : j ; (From oar own Correspondent.') I When Mr Molesworth was appointed to thé office of puisne Judge of the Supreme Court, the press of the colony was unanimous in its approval of the selection; and in such approval the public ; and the legal profession heartily concurred. It was also felt that his Excellency the Acting-Go vernor had earned the gratitude of the colony, in persisting in the elevation of the man best en titled to a seat upon the bench, and certainly not less qualified for it than any other, man in the t colony, in opposition to the "wishes of a portion of the Executive, who was disposed to bestow thc honor upon another member of the bar. The high expectations entertained of Mr Molesworth as a judge have been amply fulfilled, and thc sa tisfaction expressed at his appointment fully justi fiai Though he has hardly had time yetto get warm in his seat, he has impressed all who hare had an opportunity of watching him with great admiration of his talents as a j...
