THE STAR TUESDAY, 7TH OCTOBER, 1856. VICTORIAN RESOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 October 1856
THE STAR TUESDAY, ?TH OCTOBER, 1866. VICTORIAN RESOURCES. To borrow an illustration of the growth .j of a nation from that ot' an individual, we may say of this colony that it has had no youth. A long and precarious existence of -infancy it certainly had, but the maturity of full manhood seems to have succeeded the sickly state by which its first years were marked. The one. iaet Which ac counts for this remarkable circumstance is that the chief material of prosperity is one that does not need to seek a market, but on the contrary, ail the markets of the world are ready to bid against one another for its possession. 'I his gieat fact has placed our colony in the first Tank as a field for enter prise, and gives it an advantage over most countries long previously settled. The rapid growth and extraordinary development of the . United States is tardy and tedious, compared with the -udden aud striking exhibition of ma turity this colony presenis. They were twx» centuries in_ jaálsg^ffig ...

MINERS, AND ELECTION MEETINGS AT THE MINERS' RIGHT LEABS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 October 1856
MINERS, AND ELECTION MEETINGS AT THE MINERS' RIGHT LEADS. &nbsp; The ground about thie Miners' Right Hotel, and the lead deriving thence its name, was the scene of unusual bustle yesterday (Monday) afternoon. A meeting of the miners on busi ness was called for 3 p.m.; a meeting of elec tors to hear Mr Humffray for half-past 3 p.m.; and another meeting to listen to Mr Loader, another of the candidates for North Grant, for 4 p.m. Over the road in front of the hotel hung a string of flags of many nations, and &nbsp; some of no nations at all, but calling upon the electors of North Grant to " vote for Hum &nbsp; ffray." Beneath this gay display of illegal &nbsp; bunting, and around and within the hotel were gathered some hundred or two of people. Either politics or the flags were evidently in the ascendant, as compared with the plain, dull, business matters for which the first meeting of &nbsp; the day was convened ; for at the schoolhouse &am...
MARRIAGE OF HIS MAJESTY KAMEHAMEHA IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 October 1856
MARRIAGE OF HIS MAJESTY KAMEHAMEHA IV. This event took place on Thursday, ' the 19th of June, in the Stone Church in this .city- The day was fine, and the weather characteristic of our cli mate-clear, pleasant and warm, but fanned by the cool and refreshing trades, without which life here would have few attractions. The day¿ was observed as a holiday, and flags were displayed from the shipping, consular i offices, and public buildings. The church in which the ceremonies were performed had been decorated the day previous, and graceful festoons of orange boughs, jessamine, and ever green hung from the ceilings, the gal leries, and around the columns of the pulpit. The front of the building, the spire and the arch entrance to the churchyard were also decorated with nags and evergreens, while the ave nue from the church to the place was strewn with green rushes. i Long before the hour appointed, ! every seat in the church was taken up ; ! the number inside must have been near 3,000, whi...

Commercial. MELBOURNE WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. Argus Office, Saturday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 October 1856
&lt;£owwemaï. j MELBOURNE WHOLESALE PBICES CURRENT. Argus Office, Saturday Evening. . We can at length announce that tue languid and inactive state of our markets, caused by the long-continued rains and consequent heavy rates of cartage, has submitted to the changed wea ther, and to thc operations of the inland dealers for the supply of their stores. During thc week a marked change in demand for most Eorts of goods of general consumption has been evinced. A very considerable reduction has been made in cartage in consequence of thc amended state of the roads, "and we have to report a more lively business week than has fallen to our lot to record for some time past. The rain of to^dav ?seems of too local a character to indicate its continuance and loading is still going on briskly. We cannot record any par ticular changea in prices ; the large quantity of goods which have arrived together having tended to keep prices down. Confidence seems restored, however, and a still furthe...

MELBOURNE. (From our own Correspondent.) October 5th, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 October 1856
MELBOURNE. (From our oten Correspondait.J October 5th, 1856¿ ' Administrative reform has been an nounced by several of the G v verm en t can didates for seats ia the Legislature for Melbourne and the suburbs as theil motto. The popular opinion bas hitherto -bern that the 'public are the worst served of all employers ; that gentlemen obtain Government appointments who are noiori c.usly unfit for anything else, that is, unfit for anything useful, anything n-quiring in- J telligt iit-e, industry, and a respec table share ] of integrity. The favoured recipients of j such appointments are not expected to do much w.jrk ; iht-y récrive handsouie salaries, and seem to consider it their duty to sneer at " those c-d newspapers," at the pupa- ] lar representatives, «nd at constitutional Government on alloccations.

ETHICS AND POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 October 1856
ETHICS AND POLITICS. The problem of ethics is the " ideal of haman virtue : " that of politics, the " ideal of justice." Those questions the Greek philosophers regarded as one: moral and social science were to them identic 1. The subjects are, doubtless, inextricably connected ; the determina tion of either iovolves the determination of both : morality is the relation of will to will ; there can be no duty without at least two persons--the controller and the controlled. " Duty to oneself " is really an elliptical expression, and means faithfulness to that law, obedience to which we find tu be the condition of our happiness ; and faithfulness to a law is submission to a lawgiver. If man were an underived and independent unit, virtue and vice would have neither place nor meaning. That human na ture is social all agree ; but there is a wide difference of opinion as to the re lation of the individual to the commu nity of which he is a member. Is so ciety subordinated to tbe individual, ...
