THE BORDER DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1865

: 'THE BORDER DUTIES. Considerable ' dissatisfaction appears - to exist among the residents in the trans-Murray townships at the manner in which the border duties question has been settled.. They complain, and not without reason i that the main object for which they have all along contended, namely, unrestricted trade across the border,'/ has not been conceded, at least so for as relates to' the produce of either colony. It is in this, they contend, that they are chiefly interested, and, thia'not'boing granted, they maintain that the bene fits conferred upon them by the arrangement arrived at between New South Wales and Victoria, is trifling in the extreme. There is both' truth and force: in the argument thus put forward, and the residents in Riverina cannot be charged with being unreasonable, or with raising frivolous objections to the arrange ment determined on by the : two '- colonies. At (he same time, it must be .clearly, understood that Vic toria is .in no way to blame for any...

BUILDING PROGRESS IN MELBOURNE AND ITS SUBURBS. The tariff once in operation, speculation, it was ?confidently, predicted, would be banished from all . .builders' eyes. The mallet and chisel of the mason .? , 'were no longer to ring out cheery sounds of busy industry; gunpowder was only to blast peaceful . homes ; and that exiled son of Erin, the hodman, . was, to scale no more the dizzy heights in deli . -verance of bricks and mortar. Considering all : . things and these prophecies of evil, we, never thelesa, do continue to go on pretty well as ?wo did— rbusily in the building line. Like .Bulwer Lytton's Mr Graves, who outlived no ?end of anihilations of society in the newspapers, here we live and move and go a-head as brisk and ?as busily as Mr Graves himself, in spite of his Sainted Maria and our own economic mare's nests.

HART'S QUARTZ CRUSHING AND AMALGAMATING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1865

? HART'S QUARTZ CRUSHING AND AMAL GAMATING MACHINE. There was an exhibition, Wednesday, on the pro-, 'mises of Messrs W. Clarke and Son, in Elizabeth street, equally interesting as a proof of thoughtful mechanical ingenuity, and in its connection with the economic development of our mineral resources. It was a working model, or rather a working machine on a reduced soale, of the quartz crasher and amal gamator, the invention and patent of Mr James Hart, the engineer, of Little Collins street west i and, if we may, take the expressions of interest and approval by the practical men present as conclusive, results may be looked for alike satisfactory to the mining interest and the inventor. The advantages urged by the inventor over the old Chilian mill are that it will enable millions of tons of quartz, cement and other gold bearing materials, to be worked with profit which are now perfectly worthless : simpli city and. freedom from stoppage by accident ; dura bility, and the manufactur...
