FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 13 February 1865
FRANCE. This French paperB have apparently received orders to propose a general disarmament of Europe, and it is expected that tho Emperor's ad dress to his Chambers will contain some inkling of his policy in the matter. If he can suggest any method of inducing the nations to trust each other he will relieve Europe at once of at least £50,000,000 a year spent upon extra armaments-but how is he to do it? No nation will really disarm while liable to attack, and at the present moment every Power in Europe is threatened. The Cour; of Correctional Appeal has delivered their judgment in the case of thirteen deputies ac cused of holding illegal meetings, affirming the sen tence pronounced against them by the lower court. The grounds assigned for rejecting the appeal are that the objects of the association were not con sultation but action; that its efforts were not re stricted to Paris, but extended throughout the coun try; that the right which the electors claim to assemble according to l...

STREET NUISANCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 13 February 1865
STREET NUISANCES. I SIR,-Would you permit me, through the medium of your journal, to make a few remarks upon the above subject. The oft-abused " Corner," with ita crowd of busy miners and brokers blocking up tho pathway, 1 pass over by simply remarking that it is disgraceful to see Buch an important interest so badly provided with office room that they must tako to the streets to do their business. My remarks on this occasion are intended to apply to another part ot the town, where crowds often meet to do business. I refer to that quarter which, in the slang of the trade, might be termed " horsey"-the vicinity of the horse sale yards. With the yards themselves, and those who conduct them I Hud no fault. The evils I now write about, the salesmen have no control over and no power to check. At certain hours on every Saturday, the horse dealers have a dangerous mo nopoly of a great part of Armstrong street. Ilories in Btriogs of from three to six, sometimes under the feeble control of a...
