JUNCTIONS. (To the Editer of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 20 September 1856

I JUNCTIONS. I (To the Editer of the Star.) Sra,-Will you allow me to make a few is markson Mr Baker's letter which appeared in jour paper of the 16th. In the first place, what single statement that . I made in my letter has he denied? None not being able to deny them, he attempts to scandalize me, so great is his want of some thing to find fault with in my statements that he is obliged at last ".after several readingsT to attempt to find fault with my -grammatical expressions, 'tis à pity he did not remain quiet and not expose his own groes ignorance, with reference to his first, I think I should be in sulting the perception of the public in making any comment on it, and being fond of facts, I most positively state that he is wrong, and that I am right. In reference to his second, I am not responsible for any false punctuation on the part of the press. Kow, in compassion to Mc Baker's grammatical ignorance, I bare no, ob jection to devote an hour out of my leisure time every day to...

The Bating of Juries Bill was dis missed to the same' dismal locality, and the Judgments Execution Bill was thrown out on a division. These are merely preludes to what is to follow : and the Lords have commenced clear ing the way for a close, by the Earl of Derby's withdrawal of bis Oath of Abjuration Bill. The Sleeping Sta tutes Bill is still living ; but the Burial Acts Amendment Bill has been con sidered too grave a subject for this warm weather, and accordingly it has Jieen consigned to the tomb of interred parliamentary remains.

GOLD BUYING. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 20 September 1856

GOLD BUTING. | fTo the Editor of the Star.J - j Sir_A turnt, a mrmfh or rax weeks since von 1 published a letter signed a " Gold Buyer," re ferring chiefly to the known systematic and re- | gular practice of transporting large quantities of ] dust, the produce of other fields to this place, : and disposing of it as the yield of Ballarat leads, g However small the offence may appear to those who gain by such traffic, it nevertheless is an abuse, and seriously injures the fair trader. As such it should be discountenanced, and, if pos sible stopped. Ia my opinion it deserves a more rigorous sentence and decided check than the grievance of itinerant, but undisguised hawk- ; ing of goods, so much and so generally complained of. It appears thissubjectis likely to engage the iminediate attention of the (Ihamber of Commerce ? and tiie former is not at all unworthy of their notice.

For the opinions of Correspondents expressed here we are not responsible; we give eTery phase of intelligently expressed opinion a place in this column, refusing no useful let ter merely because its sentiments differ from our own." ME. HUMFFRAY'S MEETING. SIB,-I, along with many others, who at* i tended Mr H om {fray's meeting last evening, in tiie Charlie Napier, was surprised at thc conduct -of the chairman in not securing a fair hearing for the mover and seconder of the amendment, and much more so at his not vacating the chair | when the majority of the meeting refused to recognise his authority. I have always been J nader the impression that at such meetings as : the above, both friends and opponents have a ! right to be heard, and the arbitrary conduct of Mr Humffray"s supporters, in refusing to hear the friends of Mr Black and Mr Loader, was, to say the least of it, highly discreditable to them.

There were between 1500 and 2000 persons present. Mr Ryce was to have filled the chair; but in his absence, Mr D. Oliver occupied it, and called upon the meeting to give every one a fair hearing. Mr Fraser rose to propose the first resolution. He said he hoped that they would give every one a fair hearing. If they thought Mr Humffray a better man than any one else, then return him ; but if not, then they could express their disapprobation.

MR. LOADER AT ESMOND S LEAD. I Mr. Loader met a large assembly of elec tors and others yesterday on the ground contiguous to Esmond's Lead on the Eu reka.
