The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 3RD FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 February 1865
DAILY ISSUE. FKIDAY, 3RD FEBRUARY, 1865. THE importance to Ballarat of an ample and constant supply of water, 6uited to culinary, sanitary, and mining- purposes, is so obvious that we need not enlarge upon that theme. But it becomes a matter of vital interest to the public if the sufficiency or the constancy of that supply, which all thought the Water Commission had thoroughly secured, is im perilled, or even threatened. And there is now some danger lest the sup ply be permanently diminished. As our readers are aware, a pnvate company called the Lai Lai Water-woiks Association, claims a right to a certain portion of the water here tofore calculated upon for the supply of Bal larat, and already there have been two legal decisions in favor of the association's claim. Whether or not those were just decisions it is not our province to pronounce. Neither will we discuss the question in that phase. Twice the warden of the district (Mr Warden Clow) has decided that the association was enti...

NEWS AND NOTES. The alarm bells of both fire brigades sounded at half-past nine o'clock on Thursday evening, and on going tosee the cause we found that the fire was at the private residence of Mr Creighton, oil merchant, at the corner of Neil and Brougham Btreets, Sol diers' Ilill. The fire originated in the back kitchen, and was luckily confined to that place, a sufficient supply ot water and plenty of willing helpers being at hand. All danger was over by the time of the arrival of the brigades, which had turned out with their usual alacrity. The loss of property was not very extensive. The Captain and other officers of the Confederate steam vessel Shenandoah, are expected to arrive by the first train this morning from Melbourne. We are informed that the gentlemen who have under taken the role of hosts on the occasion, will show the guests as many as possible of the lions of Ballarat during the day, and in the evening a banquet will be given at Craig's Koyal Hotel.

THE SCOTCH COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 February 1865
THE SCOTCH COLLEGE. SIB,-The decision of the magistrates relative to the assessment of the Scotch College proves that it is merely a private institution, and therefore subject to rates. Notwithstanding what has gone before,, may it not be a question, as to whether the present appropriation is not only in opposition to the gene ral opinion of the public, and hostile to the interests of other existing establishments, but also that it is illegal. I am, yours, &c, A. B. 1st February. A most important discovery, far more BO than that of the alleged source of the Nile, has just been made in South America.

THE SMIMMING BATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 February 1865
THE SMIMMING BATH. SIB,-Will you kindly allow me to enquire of the Ballarat Bath Company (Limited), how I may for the future' be able to asctriain correctly the charge of admission to the Swimming Bath OD any parti cular day. When first opened the charges were advertised as follows-Mondays, Tuesdays and WedneBdayB, sixpence; Thursdays, Fridays, Satur days, and Sundays, one shilling. Last week handbills announced that the charge on Saturdays was reduced to sixpence. Advertisements on Tuesday (yesterday) informed the public that the admission was sixpence, including towels and attendance; Sundays and Fridays one shilling. It will be noticed that in all these Various announcements, Wednesday, is. always a Bixpenny day,aDd therefore, I waB consider ably astonished on visiting the bath this morning to find that, without giving the slightest i. timation to the public, the directors had made the charge on Wednesday a shilling. It unfortunately happens that my propensity for .bathing and th...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE NEW TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 February 1865
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE NEW TARIFF. Sin,-At the political meeting held this evening, in the large hall ot the Mechanics' Institute, I was perfectly surprised to see a large majority, consisting chiifly of working men, voting in favor of the new tariff. Now, whether the measurement system or the ad valorem duty be adopted, certain it is that the ?working man would be a loser by the proposed change, inasmuch as the new taration would fall heavier upon him than the contra repeal of Id on BUgar, 3d on tea, and the gold export duty, which .would affect wealthy mining shareholders rather than the working miner. By way of example, it appears probable that under any circumstances blankets and moleskin trowsers will be subject to measurement, and a heavy per centage will be placed on baots. Now, a medium-sized pair of blankets will pay about 2s 6d duty, and a pair of molskin trowsers about 8d, at 4B per cubic foot. Now I venture to ailirm that a "working mnn with a family would probably b...
