The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, 10TH FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 10 February 1865
DAILY ISSUE. FRIDAY, IOtii FEBRUARY, 18C5. IT is a common saying that truth will always prevail. And no doubt it does in the end; but a long time will sometimes elapse before it obtains the mastery, and in the meantime error has an opportunity to work infinite mis chief. " Murder will out," is another popular saying1, and like other sayings of the same kind it has some foundation in fact. But there are many murders that never "come out," and some of which the real facts come out so late that ia the interval innocent men have been hanged by reason of them. It is but the other day that in our own com munity the innocence of a man whom a jury had found guilty of felony was fully estab lished, and the man duly pardoned; but before truth prevailed the unfortunate had suffered the full penalty of his alleged offence and been discharged from custody. Truth was behind time in this as in many instances, and error had been Etrong enough to hold an innocent man in durance for several years, an...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 10 February 1865
NEWS AND NOTES. The commander and officers of the Confederate cruiser Shenandoah will arrive in Ballarat this day, and we have sufficient confidence in the good sense of the people of Ballarat to feel assured that they will receive a fit reception. Since the Shenandoah arrived in Victorian waters, a good deal has been said and written about her and her mission, about her commander and officers, that had better have been withheld. As to the merits of the quarrel be tween North and South, each British subject is of courBe entitled to form his own opinion, but aB a community it is obviously our duty to abstain irom taking either the ono Bide or the other. In America, closely related to us by the ties of kindred and blood, a fierce war is raging, each party firmly convinced that it has right and justice on its side, and it be hoveB us rather to commiserate the Bufferings which the war inflicts upon the one and the other than to become partizans of either. We trust, therefore, that the c...

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. Friday, 10th February. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBI-IT. Captain Dane gave notice that on the reconsider ation of the tarilT he would move that an import duty of 103 per ton be placed on potatoes. Mr Levey desired to postpone the motion standing in his name for a select committee to investigate the action taken by the Government in remitting the fine inflicted by the Cownna bench of magistrates upon Mr George Urquhart. The reason for the postponement was that he had been informed that a trial bearing on the subject was coming on in a few days. Mr Levey moved-That in the opinion of this House it is not expedient to allow any person to dig or search for gold in any of the parks or public reserves around Melbourne. Mr Sullivan was inclined to oppose the motion, inasmuch as before permitting anything to be done he should take every care that all proper precautions were enforced for the preservation of the Tand3 in question.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. UNLOCK THE MINES. SIR,-In your paper of Wednesday, 25th January, I read with more astonishment than pleasure the following portion of the report of the legal mining manager ol the Band of Hope :-" The registrations held by your company on the Golden Point Lead are 8840 feet in length, and all the present workings of the company, if put together, would not amount to 400 feet of the lead, so that there is scarcely one twenty-second part of the Golden Point Lead worked, and your company also hold registration for nearly the same extent of ground on each of four other leadB." In other words some 80 or 100 original shareholders bold possession of and ate registered for near eight miles of proi pected frontage, and (as the manager tells us in another part of his report) are about to supple ment this enormous claim with another mile or so of a newly discovered lead. Now, however gratify ing all this may be to the shareholders of the monster claim, I feel convinced tha...
