THE STAR TUESDAY, 23rd SEPTEMBER, 1856. TRAMWAYS AND CO-OPERATION [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 September 1856
THE STAU TUESDAY, 23rd SEPTEMBER, 1856. j TRAMWAYS AND CO-OPERATION OSE of the greatest arguments that bas been advanced in favor' of a govern mental scheme of raii-.vays, is that the people are too engrossed with other more lucrative matters to attend, to the développement of the internal communi cation of the colony ; and that, there fore, it becomes the duty of the go vernment to carry out that which aü admit the necessity of, but upon which few have the public spirit to enter. Our object now is not to. show tile im policy of allowing the government to construct our railways, but to point out a field where enterprise may rjeap a splendid reward, and at the same time develope the resources of the colony in a most remarkable manner; We allude to the construction pf tram ways through the chief mining and agricultural districts of the colony. The great mining centres of tie j rolony~BaUarat,Bendigo, Beechworth j and Castlemaine--have now become" siirrounded by an industrious J¿ndnri ...

- - 1 &lt;&ommsttía\. ¡ MELBOURNE WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. Argus Office, Saturday Evening. Another week, ot -general inactivity in mercantile matters has come to an end. The excitement of the nourtnatioa of candidates, in 4he early'part of the week, and the heavy rains.of the l»st few days, twvejqTiite pre vented any re-animation in business. In deed, until the elections are closed, and the roads Will opened again, we do not see any prospect of improvement. It is certain that the stocks ia all the inland towns are low.. Ballarat, perhaps excepted, the continued rains preventing supplies going up makes them daily smaller, and it is therefore only a "question of time as to when the very large quantities'of goods which must be re quired will be able to "be forwarded. Cc un: ry orders continue to arrive in town, hit the execution of "them is of course delayed until there is a prospect of for warding them with probable safety from the weather, and at reasonable rates of ...

DUNOLLY. (From a Correspondent) 18th Sept, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 September 1856
I DUNOLLY. j fFrom a Correspondent) ! 18th Sept, 1856. j I hare great pleasure in girmgan encourag- j mg account of the appearance ot these mines, . in my opinion, superior to any of the late rushes in the colony. The lead is daily getting deeper, | and is commencing to get wet. I met on the : road a party of miners busily engaged in split ting slabs for the diggings ; the latter extend about eight miles in length, occupied by a pop ulation of not less than 40,000 people. There is a Main-road about three miles long, which I am afraid iriU cause some - little disturbance, -as ! the authorities here are very judiciously trying j to prevent all parties from sinking on it. j Another large nugget has been found by a lucky German, who, already, hy this time, un- ; doubtedly is calculating what enjoyments he i may be able to obtain with the proceeds ef his j 1 llb nugget upon his return to the Father land. !

NATURALIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 September 1856
NATURALIZATION. IN [the motley population "which, our . gold discovery attracted to these shores, there are representatives of nearly every nation and form of government. Though the inducements to become citizens, held out to theße arrivals, were fer less than they might have been, had those who were in power been sincerely desirous of advancing the interests of the colony, still the i hope of a more liberal policy on the part of the Government, was sufficient to decide the wavering in favor of mak ing a permanent home among us. i This feeling was not confined to those \ who were born in some other portion ! of the British dominions. The natives ' of other kingdoms, whether looking at '.? the comparative freedom actually to be enjoyed at present, or the probable benefits of the future, were inclined to fell in with the prevailing opinions. To the natives of other kingdoms, the acquisition of a home was of more difficult attainment, in" one respect, than to their fellow colonists, in...
VOLUNTARYISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 25 September 1856
VOLUNTARYISM. . Chevalier Bunsen, in his " Signs of the Times," makes the following re marks upon Voluntaryism in England : -" On my return to my own country last summer, after about fourteen years absence in England, I began to compare the impressions with which I had left Germany, with thé more ripe views which, through more extended study, and a more large experience, I had ob tained ; and in doing so I found my mind's eye fixed on two phenomena which stood forward as signs of the j times, both by the extensiveness of j their operation, and by the pregnancy j of their significance. I mean .the power of free and spontaneous asso- j eiation on the one hand, and on the other the rising claims and increased power of the clergy or hierarchy. The principle of voluntary association, to speak of this first, has been for a long time active in England ; and there is in and about London, and in Great Britain generally, scarcely any great movement or public work of which the roots are not to...

TUE STAR J THURSDAY, 25th SEPTEMBER, 1856. THE LOCAL COURT AND THE PRESS THE Local Court has been " much j maligned," and the press has done j it ; thus say the men of the Court and j Mr Humffray, one of the candidates for North Grant. No one por tion of the press has been singled out publiclj as the calumniator ; but the Star having been dis tinguished with " three groans" at Mr Humffray's monster meet ing, we presume, therefore, that we hare been the most malignant of the "-slanderers," We are told that the press has made insinu ations against the Court, but had »et «tared to come forward and make any charge against its mem bers j" those insinuations being -OM» offspring nf." inventive mal lee."

I LINTON, WAfiDY YALLOCK. - \ (From our own Correspondent.) j Septem ber 22. j The rush to the head of Nuggety Gully has almost ceased. A great number have already left, long before the place hada fair trial. I visited the spot.lately, and from appearances I should imagine that a considerable number were doing pretty well. There may be about300 miners upon the ground, most of whom seem to be busily employed. I was shown a beautiful sample of gold from one of the paying claims-it is of a coarse character. The Black Lead is at last yielding up ; some of its treasures, which has of course made a 6tir here. There is a rumor afloat that a large party from Ballarat is about to erect a steam engine upon the lead. If the " present claims turn out well we shall have a large increase to our population. Two or three new rushes have been made during the week to the Wet Flat. The Black Hill is looking brisk again. Many holes that were left as worthless are now . turning out very well, and alread...
