SELFISHNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 October 1856

SELFISHÎiESS. He that seeketh his own, will never make a wiser choice : neither force of will nor clearness of judgment will avail to deliver him from disappointment and despair. He is not deceived by circumstances, nor betrayed by con science. Both in himself and others he has constant proofs that the sight of the eyes is not truth ; the pleasant to the taste is not desirable ; the mind of the flesh not right understanding ; when he yields to the seductions vof idleness, sen suality, or passion, the disatisfaction and uneasiness which immediately suc ' ceed gratification are witnesses of his heart that to walk in pleasure is living death. What is more common than to hear the careless or self-indulgent con fess that they know the destraction which is yawning for them, as they cannot shut their eyes to the distress which tbëy already cause to others?

Mrmng anairs arc etui improving, - and a great deal more gold than usual has been offered for sale during hist week. r The rush that I mentioned in my last as having taken place to the Wet Flat, is turning out very well, the gold very much resembling Nuggety Gully gold in appearance ; the sinking is about forty feet. Another rush has taken place to some surfacing which is paying moderately. The weather still presents obstacles in the way Of working the low ground ; many are anxiously looking for ward to fine weather setting in. I believe some j large company has sent in a petition to be al lowed to work four acres of the Wet Flat. I don't think the diggers here will relish that, for rich ground is known to exist there, but the flooded state of the gully prevents it being worked at present. Many parties are doing a quiet stroke ia Happy Valley ; very few know that there is any one in that locality, but I am assured that sev...

It is meant to represent à balloon on fire. The inscription (in French) runs to the following effect : " In this cemetery are interred Fran cois Pilàtre de Rosier and Pierre Ange Romain, who, desiring to pass over to England in an air-balloon, in which they had combined the agency of fire and of inflammable air, by an accident -whose veritable cause will always remain unknown - the fire having caught the upper part of the balloon, they fell from a height of more than five thousand feet between Wimereux and the sea."
