THE STAR THURSDAY, 9TH OCTOBER, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 9 October 1856

THE STAR 1 THURSDAY, 9TH OCTOBER, 1856. NORTH GRANT ELECTION. ! TO-MOBBOW'S' proceedings will ter minate the political excitement under which we have for some time labored. The importance of the occasion.can rsearcely be over-estimated by the electors of North Grant, whether they take the largeness of the interests'to be represented in the new Parliament, the opinion which may be formed of tthcir judgment by the selection which may be made, or the influence which the representation of so numerous a constituency should exercise , in the direction of public affairs. We con sidrir the event so important that we dare not trust ourselves to give expres sion to our opinion of those who, care less of the high trust vested in them, may fail to record their votes for one or other of the candidates. Ia several of the contested elections which have lately taken place, one or two votes would have turned the 6cale, and so placed honest representa tives in the house, and excluded men of questiona...

MOUNT ALEXANDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 9 October 1856

MOUNT ALEXANDER.       CASTLEMAINE DISTRICT.--- Nothing of impor-   tance has occurred during the last fortnight,   and we have no new rush to report. The   Dunolly fever has affected the field as well as others, but there is no doubt that, as soon as summer fairly sets in, our population will in- crease. At Tarrengower, the quartz yields con- tinue to be very great, and show no signs of diminution. The population of the district (including Tarrangower) is about 10,000.   There are 20 steam engines, 150 puddling ma- chines, 68 sluises, and 30 hand machines. FRYER'S CREEK.----The Emu reef is being worked vigorously, and new claims are taken up on it to a considerable distance down Spring Gully, and more than 60 ounces have been taken from a ton of quartz.

Leaping faster than it all ! And die heather now extending Miles around ns as we paused, And thine eyes upon me beading, And the blush that gazing caused. AH these memories-sweet, unbidden-.

In Mr O'Sha nassy's return for Kilmore, many people see only the natural result of the esteem in which that gentleman is held by a large proportion of the electors of that district, this feeling being stimulated into now em phatic expression by the quasi defeat implied in the result of the Melbourne poll.
