THE CHOPS. At the farm of Messrs J. and W.

The wheat is on tbe average tolerably good, but the oats are inferior. Messrs Connor Brothers, close to the Smcaton Pound have a fair crop of wheat, but the oats are light. Messrs Anderson, Brothers, at Smeaton, have thrashed out a fine lot of wheat, which has yielded very well. Mr Bales, at Springs, has had on the average a very fair crop of wheat, a portion of which, grown upon fallow land, and also upon what had been previously cropped with potatoes and well manured, averaged about 30 bushels per acre. About Kingston and Spring Hill the white velvet and prolific varieties of wheat have yielded the most (as yet) this year.

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 8TH FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 8 February 1865
DAILY ISSUE. WEDNESDAY, 8TH FEBRUARY, 1865. TIIE adjourned debate on Mr Dyte's motion for leave to introduce a bill entitled The Bal larat and Ballarat East Water Commission Incorporation Bill, will be resumed in the Legislative Assembly this evening1, and the great importance of the subject, not only to Ballarat but to every other gold-fields' com community in the colony, demands that we should again refer to the bill and bespeak for it the support of all gold-fields' representa tives. What is Bailarat's case to-day may one day be the case of any other inland town, and it behoves all members for gold fields districts to make common cause with our own, so that when dangers similar to those which now hang over Ballarat menace their districts they may calculate upon reci procal support and assistance. And the difficulty from which the bill we have mentioned seeks to free the Ballarat Water Commission is of the most grave kind. In a previous article we explained the relative positions ...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 8 February 1865
NEWS AND NOTES. A fire that luckily .« as not very extensive in its damage, broke out on 'Tuesday morning early, in the kitchen at the rear of the Soldiers' Hill Hotel, Armstrong street, occupied by Mrs Higgans. Con stable Murphy, on duty in Yuille street, saw the fire, and at once raised an alarm, when the Bleeping inmates of the house were aroused, and the fire, by the help of the neighbors thus timely summoned, was soon put out. The fire was confined to tho kitchen, but we have not learnt how it originated, Mr Shannon, hay and corn merchant, had horBes and produce in premises adjoining, and the horses and other valuables were removed, the owner being agreeably surprised at having none of his property injured. There is no doubt that, but for Constable Murphy's activity, the loss of property would have been great, if life had not also been included in the destruction. On Tuesday afternoon there was again a storm of wind and rain. Between sis and seven o'clock there was bitterly col...
