BALLARAT AND ITS GOLD-FIELDS. &nbsp; &nbsp; In writing a skotoh'of the 'rise and progress of the second city of '.the oolony of 'Victoria, it is necessary to go back to the days when the primeval forest was undisturbed, and the land on which there now stands a busy, popnlons and thriving township was a desert. To the solitary shepherd who less . than ? a score of years ago guarded the flooks of his master from the inroads of native aggressors, biped and quadruped, the. scene vwhich . , would : now present itself to' his eye ? is one which could not foil to exoite in his breast a feeling of the most intense and profound wonder. Where, at what seems to the middle-aged and old so short a period of time, there wub the almost death like quiet of the primeval forest, there has arisen the naoleas of a mighty, city, which- ia pro gressing with saoh giant strides that one; may look forward to the future with everyi certainty. of its continued and increasing prosperity. , It w...

Had I this power npwf the subject matter of my theme wonld bo Gollinfl-Btroot. In the first place, let mo stato emphatically, that if Mr George Augustus Sola were in thiB hemisphere, and had given to liim the choice of an addition to his papers on ft The Streets ©f tho World,' ho would select, pven, before Pitt-stroot, Sydney, Collins Btreet, Melbourne. Tho latter has so many advantages: it ia wide, spacious and — I don't know whether tho term is a pro per one, but I know it is descriptive — airy.
