BALLARAT ANNUAL REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 11 February 1865

BALLARAT ANNUAL REGATTA. The regatta at Lake Wendouree oil Friday after noon proved quite as successful as its promoters could have fairly anticipated. The attendance though at first small, increased largely towards as the afternoon advanced, and about four o'clock there must have been nearly one thousand persona present. These were distributed over the Parade and around the boat-houses, whilst a large number determined to see something more than the arrival o£ the boats " after the race"-nearly all that could be seen from the vicinity of the boat-houses-were located on the headland stretching towards the main channel, from which stand-point a good view could be obtained of the start and finish of each race. And this was all that could be seen of the events, unless the contending boats were followed -a course veiy difficult to be adopted and probably not even attempted. The main channel in which the boats competed had been cleared of rushes, and there was an ample supply of water fo...

DAILY ISSUE. SATURDAY, 11 tii* FB B It U AR Y, 186 THE English mail for December teached Adelaide yesterday, and we give elsewhere a summary of the news received by telegram. To make room for the English news we are compelled to hold oyer our leading article and other matter.

The party were taken over the works of the Black Hill Quartz Company and then over the works of the United Extended Band of Hope Alluvial Company. Both shafts of the latter company were descended bv the visitors, and we need hardly add that as this is the first gold-field they have seen, they expressed them selves in terms of pleasure at the wonders they saw, as well as at the courtesy shown by the officers of the companies whose mines were visited. The regatta waB also visited, and we hope the seafaring " proclivities " were to so...

WEEKLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 11 February 1865

WEEKLY A.GKICUX1TURA.L KEPORT. Thursday Evening. With reBpect to the forthcoming National Grain Show it is satisfactory to find that the Kail way Department has made the concession asked, viz.: free transit of produce, though we are informed that the boon is the last of the sort that can be granted. It is also gratiiying to note that the Ballarat Agri cultural Society has modified its regulation as to exhibits by non-members. By Rule 11, the society intended to charge 20a on exhibitors in grain, and 2s Cd in other classes, when as non-members they were competing far the prizes of the Board of Agriculture. The Council of the Board pointed out that this was a disability which was not experienced at the National Show in Melbourne, and the exemption of members of the society at the Ballarat show was a piece of favoritism scarcely to be borne. The society has modified the matter by making all exhibitors -whether members or non-members-pay uniform entrance fees of 10s and 2s Gd in the res...

AMERICA. The American news is to the evening of the 14th December. On the 5th the Federal Congress bad assembled in Washington. The Pcesident, in his messages, says that an attempt to negotiate with Mr Davis would not lead to any benefieal result, for Davis would not accept anything less than disunion, which the North is determined not to grant. The South can have peace by laying down arms and submitting to national authority. He (the President) would retract nothing previously said by him on the subject of slavery, and declined to modily the slavery Ex clamation. The North would cease hostilities when ever war was ended by those who began it.

These two therefore took their places at the wickets to-day, and commenced, by steady play, to get their "eye in;" but very soon Wills, who is always fond of stealing a run, tried one too many, and before he could reach home, his wickets were down, having added but one to his score of yesterday.
