UTAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 July 1856

Tile San JPtaneueo. tttrata, 01 2in muu, sajB:-** We leam Scorn, the Salt .Lake papera teceired bj the last mail irom the Sooth, thatan etectwnfor Delegates to a Convention ibr the formation pf a State Con stitution, was held in Utah on the 16th of February, and that the Convention was to assemble on the 3rd of March. Our dates reach only to the 27th of february, and we are, therefore, without any information as to the details of the State Government which the Saints propose to form. By the next mail we will receive a copy of the Constitu tion. It will, no doubt, be a precious docu ment. At first sight, it might appear strange that the Saints should, desire to assume the responsibility of supporting a State Govern ment, but when the fact is taken into consi deration that at some future period the Ge neral Government might screw op its courage to depose Brigham Young Scorn the position of Governor of the Territory, the object of the movement will at once become apparent. The fact is,...

AVOCA. 14th July, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 July 1856

AVOCA       14th July, 1856 .     I have very little to report as to mining matters, which, together with things in ge neral, are very dull here. A few holes have been lately bottomed at the deep sinking with considerable success, and again the tide of people floods towards us-perhaps to ebb again next week. Facilities have been lately given by the Local Court for the application of whim and horse machinery to the work ings, and this with the amalgamation of claims will no doubt give a fresh impetus to these diggings. TUB MILITER STET-KEN MYSTERY.-We have at present no one to represent us at the Loddon.

YOUNG MEN'S ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 July 1856

YOUNG MEN'S ASSOCIATION.     (To the Editor of the Star.) SIR,-In common with many more-who feel the loss of that social and intellectual intercourse with which were privileged in the mother   country-I have looked around me on Ballarat for some place in which, when released from     business, an hour may be spent agreeably, and to profit. We have casinos, dancing and concert rooms, to the heart' s content--but, to say the   least, there is but little to be found there to satisfy the thoughtful mind eager for instruction. I am greatly mistaken if there are not some hundreds on Ballarat who would rejoice at having opened to them some means whereby their men- tal and moral nature would be improved and benefited.         Would it be impossible to form a Young Men's Association, or some such organization, and if so, would it be too much to expect of the vario...

Also,-- The Household Furniture, Stock-in-trade, and the best Cooking Stove in the Colony.

It is a well-built Hotel, containing on the ground-floor, a Large Bar, Dining-room, Parlour, Pantry, Kitchen ; and on the First-floor, seven Bed-rooms, and a Parlor ; the whole covered with galvanized iron.

GOLD IN WALES! [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 July 1856

I GOLD IN WALES i ! We have just witnessed a successful trial of a newly patented method of extracting gold from Welsh quartz, which seems likely . to render some parts of that country and some other districts of these islands almost as busy scenes as the Australian diggings. Mr .Charles Low, who has taken out the patent, had long entertained the opinion 1 th^r gohq^^a^ %Id ja quartz, and possibly. bination ; and that to this reason was to be ascribed the impossibility of its extraction by ' the usual process, amalgamation.- He called attention to this view in thc public journals, in consequence of whieh many samples of British ore were sent to him for analysis. In experiments upon these ia the laboratory he fully demonstrated that, by fusing the quartz with lead, which tabes up the gold from the .ore, and then by the well-known process termed cupellation, getting rid of the lead, the gold could be ob tained with ease, though not to be separated by any other known process. In the la...

THE STAR. TUESDAY, 22nd JULY, 1856 THE EDUCATIONAL QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 July 1856

Till-] STAU, j TUESDAY, 22nd JULY, 1656 THE EDUCATIONAL QUESTION. THE government of this Colony j provides pretty liberally for the I support both of religion and educa tion. The provision for the latter is apportioned between the National and Denominational Boards, with thc understanding, of course, that the sums so apportioned shall be faithfully devoted to the purpose of education. By specially devoting an amount for the support of religion it is evident that the government have no intention of allowing any portion of tho sum set apart for educational purposes to be applied to religious purposes. The spirit of the grants, as well as the wording of the clauses both confirm this view of the case. We have thus a defined purpose for certain monies, and if the recipients apply them to other objects, however useful, or however sacred, they obviously act in a man ner which if not legally is at least morally culpable. Ii money re ceived for building a Denominational School in a certain d...

THE WORKING OF DENOMINATIONALISM. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 July 1856

THE "WORKING OF DENOMINA- ! TIONALISM.   [ (To the Editor of the Star.) j Sir,-As you have on several occasions been   kind enough to insert in your paper the commu   nications I have sent you, I beg to trouble you once more. In your recent numbers the question of educa   tion has been discussed, but hitherto with only yourself as the advocate of the National system. I am anxious, however, to hare my " say " on the subject, the more so as I think that the real difficulties of teaching religion in a school com posed of children of all denominations have hitherto been kept " out of sight, out of mind." Mr. Potter tells us that the minds of children and youth are ever ready to receive impressions, and that this is one reason why they, the advo cates of Denominational schools, wish to teach them religion. But I, as a father, wish, for the very same reason, to sow seed there myself, or, if I entrust it to another, to be satisfied with t...

ROADSIDE FRONTAGES AND SLY GROG SELLING. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 22 July 1856

ROADSIDE FRONTAGES AND SLY GROG SELLING. j i I {To tlu Editor of the Star.) j «SIB,-The all absorbing topics on Ballarat are, the Sale of the Roadside Frontages and the illegality of unlicensed grog-selling. The question may arise as to the affinity of one ?with the other ; and the reply would be- j that the affinity is great, because it is pre sumed by many that the sale of the one will j ultimately legalise the sale of other. Now, Sir, I contend, that such is not the natural deduction, for if the Government does decide upon conceding to the wishes of some of the Storekeepers in allowing them to be come purchasers of their various sites, it will not rescind the existing law, that no public house shall be licensed within half-s mile of the declared Township of Ballarat, and therefore, those parties who anticipate t\iu<i mi-o uiunu vt tkiiuac,-tlrâiawmustbe rescinded, are greatly in error ; at the same time no one can deny, that it is a very hard, unjust, and impolitic law...

POLICE COURT.   Saturday, 19th July.     (Before W. Turner, Esq., S.M., J. Oddie,     Esq., J.P., and S. Irwin, Esq., J.P.)     Mr Cuthbert applied on behalf of Mr Henry Holton Moody of the United States Hotel for a night license to keep his house open until twelve o'clock, and also that once a month he might keep the house open all night for the purpose of giving a ball. Mr Cuthbert also stated that Mr Moody wished to give a ball on Tuesday evening next. Mr Turner inquired if Tuesday was a particu- lar day, and if the ball to be given would be a ball given by a party who had hired the room, or by the landlord for the benefit of the house ? Mr Cuthbert said that it was merely an ordin- ary ball. Mr Turner said that the usual night license would be granted. The Bench declined to grant permission to have the house kept open one night in the month all night. When it was wished to keep the house o...

THE NEW MOVEMENT! There is nothing now under the sun,     our so-called New Movement cannot   even claim the merit of originality. The following extract from Household Words might be set down -but for the anachronism-as a favorable notice of our New Movement : ONE CURE MORE. Thc last extravagance of quackery is called the Movement-cure. It is of German breeding. Its llalmeinon, however, was a Swede, named Ling. There is a Loudon professor of it, who is a German M.D., and by whom it is expounded ut length in a book, illustrated with a series of use ful pictures. They represent a patient who goes through the whole gymnastic series, and is a vic tim to all the fingering and mauling by which epilepsy, consumption, disease of the heart, liver complaints, scrofula, dropsy, cholera, and more of the several ills that flesh is heir to, may be re lieved, cured, or averted, according to the doctor. The remedy consists, in every case, in getting up a certa...

You make a pathetic allusion to "the grave charges" to which you are exposed in consequence of your remarks on the , question already referred to. It would seem the most tenable and judicious course to ad vance your ideas of a thorough system of education supported by arguments, and then enquire, if opposition would arise, into the why and tile wheref...
