THE STAR SATURDAY, 11TH OCTOBER, 1856. ELEMENTS OF PROSPERITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 October 1856

THE STAR SATUBDAY, 11TH OCTOBER, I860. ELEMENTS OF PROSPERITY. As a community is merely a collection of individuáis, it follows that the same principles of human action that operate to promote the prosperity of a single member must also apply to the whole nation. In the discussion of this sub ject we will endeavor to follow this j train of thought. It will be conceded on all bands that sound moral qualities are an essential element of success. No ' sane man would be bold enough to suggest to another the abandonment of upright conduct as a good means of advance- | ment in life ; he may abandon it him- j self, but Le would not like to proposé it ! to another. The fact is patent ' that though a crooked course is in some cases successful yet these cases are the exception, not the rule, and furnish evidence by the universal execration of society that they call forth the strong- st argumentT against the adoption of such courses. To apply this to' .a commu nity we have only to expand the i...

MR. HUMFFRAY AND THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 October 1856

MR. HUMFFRAY AND THE PRESS. IK another column will be found a j report of Mr Humffray's meeting at the Charlie Napier Assembly Room | on Thursday" last, on which occasion | that gentleman made an apology to this journal for the injudicious and unfounded statements he made in the Council during the last session, in re ference to Captain Vignoles and the now famous " ghost ca6e." Though somewhat tardily rendered, Mr Hum ffray's apology is so far satisfactory, as it acknowledges .that the statements made by us in reference to the matter, and as a consequence those of a simi lar nature made by the other journals of the colony were substantially cor rect. In making an apology for his own mis-statements, Mr Humffray expres ses a hope that we will return the compliment, and apologise to him for having asserted that he had ever withdrawn his motion. If Mr Hum ffray can show that what we stated is incorrect, we will give him. all rea sonable satisfaction. The words used by us were, " -When t...

The residue of this chemical dissolution I process, after gold has been obtained, will not only pay for the cost of extraction, but J will in many cases leave a considerable < profit on. the operation.

EARLY ENGLISH FILIBUSTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 October 1856

I EARLY ENGLISH FILIBUSTERS. John Morgan and John McGregor were the two English fillibusters who have given notoriety to the adventures of the buccaneers. The former, some two centuries ago, was a terror to the coasts of Spanish America. He ravaged the coasts of the mainland, and his fleets and armies, wherever they went, were generally successful. The thick walls built around Spanish American cities afforded no protection against the incursions of the piratical hordes. The last and most successful operation of Morgan and his adjuncts was the land ing of 1100 men at the mouth of Chagres river, from whence they j ascended in small boats to Cruces, and then marched by land against Old Panama, some seven miles below the site of the present city. When within a few miles of the place, they sent forward a messenger demanding an un i conditional surrender. This being re l fused, they attacked and took the city, I and made dreadful havoc among the i inhabitants. The Spaniards were cut to pi...
