Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 2 October 1856

One af thc great points in Baker's Regula tions was the termination of shepherding and share monopoly. They h .ve, however, most ¿¿nally failed in respect of the latter evil-for pluralists were never more numerous; and never half so syttematie and daring as now. The monstrous old grievance of permitting a parcel of lazy drones to hold claims in abey ance, and keep willing men idle while shares were being disposed of advantageously, has been pretty successfully combated, yet is the spirit of the grievance still alive. Instead of shepherds snugly smoking their pipes in a lee comer of their hole and telling would-be workers there was no room for them we have men getting themselves registered in half-a dozen different leads, and thus keeping idle five other men who might otherwise be profi tably employed. All sorts of dodges are resorted to in order to secure a "monopoly of shares and escape the fangs of the" law which, if it faded in properly expressing its aim, certainly intended to p...

Tecent pape* pointed out fie importance of a sound education to a-legislator, we have now to consider the class or calibre of mind requisite to sustain the office, and discharge the duties with efficiency and advantage to the public In order to do this it will be necessary to take into account the peculiar position we occupy in the world's history as regards the unpre cedented circumstances io which this colony is placed. The first thing that will strike any one who takes sufficient interest te re flect on the matter, is the comparative blank in which we find the statute book. The greater part of the laws that bear on the industry and progress of the colony having been passed to meet some pressing emergency rather than to form part of a compact, well digested code, we have got, not so much to reform, as to ascertain the Èotoên'of rnew_,colo"5y ifeoulcTte based.

MADAME ANNA BISHOP. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 4 October 1856

I MADAME ANNA BISHOP. | I We owe it as well to the courtesy which Madame Bishop has personally shown to the press, as to her dis lin gui «ned reputation as one of the " Queens of Song" that we should break a rule which otherwise we should have held inviolable and been silent. With this premising we hasten to express the pleasure we have in hailing the appear ance on Ballarat of an artiste so celebrated, and so justly celebrated as Madam Anna Bishop. Ours is a microcosm unique-^-an epitome as it were of all humanities, civilised and Ravage ; and wonders and novelties are not strangers to ns. Yet it is enough to arrest our attention, and worthy of record, when to the list of other wonders which in the past have demonstrated to us that " truth is strange, stranger than fiction," we have to note the first arrival in oar midst of an opera singer of more than European re nown. Madame Bishop is accompanied by Messrs Conlon, Laglaise, Siede, and Loder ; and the public have welcomed them on ...

POINTS FOR MINING- MEMBERS. ÎÎEXT to the Land question conies' that of mining on private hinds, which .was left unsettled by the late Council. It is a question that must be decided in the new Assembly $ and just in pro portion to the degree of interest th^y feel in it, should be the anxiety of the miners to return representatives pre pared and pledged to uphold then rights in reference to it. Then fol lows the great question of -public works in connection with the gold fields. The old plan of expending millions of revenue ' in supporting useless or mischievous establish ments, and in building temporary: and valueless /quarters for them, is not so wholly" done away -with but that some vestiges still ' re main.
