DECIMAL AND INTERNATIONAL j COINAGE, AND WEIGHTS AND j MEASURES. j On Wednesday afternoon, a rétMton of the friends of this movement took place at the residence of Mr Yates, Lauderdale House, Highgate. .

PROGRESSIVE GROWTH OF CITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 25 September 1856

PROGRESSIVE GROWTH OF ! CITIES. j London is now the greatest concen tration of human power the world has ever known. Will its supremacy be permanent ? or will it, like its prede cessors, be eclipsed by Western rivals ? New Yorkers do not doubt, and, indeed have no reason to doubt, that their ; city, now numbering little more than one-third the population of London, will, within the next fifty years, he . greater than the metropolis of the British Empire. New York, with her immediate dependencies, numbers about 900,000. Since 1790 6he has established a law of growth which doubles her population once in fifteen years. If this law continues txfoperate, she may be expected to possess 1,600,000 in 1871 ; 3,600,000in 1886; and 7,200,000 in 1801. If twenty years be allowed New York as her future period of duplication, she would still overtake London by the end of fifty years. London may then have five millions ; New York will almost certainly have more than that number. Will the star of em...

HOBSE STEALING.-The cases of horse stealing already tried these sessions are of more than usual importance, and certainly demand some little attention from the au thorities. There is One in particular to which we have to direct their attention, that of John Howard and John Fitzroy, who were each sentenced to 12 years' hard labor. They were both captured by the energy end I perseverance of two private persons, Lan celot Ryan, the owner of the stolen horses, and his nephew, Thomas Day, who is well I known on Ballarat as a good hand for catching horse stealers. It is to be hoped ! that some steps will be taken to render this resort of the greatest pests we have, the horse stealers, too hot to held them much longer.

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 25 September 1856

Mining. NEW GROUND.-A regular old fashioned rush took place on Monday and Tuesday, and still continues, close by the new line of road between Prince Regent and Sailor's Gullies. It is mere surfacing, being from one to three or four feet deep, but in several places re- markably rich ; nuggets having been found varying from an ounce up to two or three pounds weight. One man, we were informed, turned out a lump of gold, on Tuesday, the weight of which he estimated at over three pounds weight. Another man obtained £20 for one days work ; another half-an-ounce from a tin dish; while several heaps of stuff are turning out two or three ounces to the tub. We cannot, of course, vouch for the absolute accuracy of these amounts; but we do know that several patches were found extremely rich, and that many nug- gets were picked up. John Chinaman was the first on the ground, having been surfacing about there last week, and having hit upon some gold close to the road side, a rush set in. Fights to...

THE DAIRYMEN'S COWS. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 25 September 1856

THE DAIRYMEN'S COWS. (To the Editorof the Star.) Sir,- Will you allow me to inform the parties interested that the two memorials in reference to the impounding of the dairymen's   cows by Messrs. Wattie and Winter were duly laid by me before the Hon. the Surveyor-Ge- neral, for presentation to his Excellency the Acting Governor. Captain Clarke promised to   give the matter every consideration, and to forward a reply with as little delay as possible. At present, however, the law is against the dairymen, and the squatters have the power to impound stray cattle. The efforts of the injured parties must, there- fore be directed against the law, as it now exists, and a memorial for its repeal had better be prepared for the Legislative Assembly.
