THE STAR TUESDAY, 14TH OCTOBER, 1856. THE BALLOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 14 October 1856

THE STAR TUESDAY, 14T« OCTOBER, 1856. THE BALLOT. ~ WE are not of that number who re spect the ballot simply because its principle and utility have been affirmed by the Legislature. We are not anxious that the ballot system should have & fair trial merely as an elec tioneering experiment; we hope to see it become a fundamental principle of our "Victorian constitution, honestly carried out in practice on all occasions, so as to become in reality what its ad vocates believe it to be-the protector of individual opinions and rights against class or other external influence or interference. The whole value of the ballot system consists in its secrecy--its being secret voting is the main objection which has been ever urged against its general adoption. Ail the objections against the system are concentrated in the saying that it is un-English^ that is the opposite of everything that is frank, open, and fearless. Alas I even in this Eldorado all men cannot dare to despise thtir busi...

THE STAR TUESDAY, 21ST OCTOBER, 1856. AGRICULTURAL INSTITUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 21 October 1856

THE STAB TUESDAY, 21ST OCTOBER, 1856. AGRICULTURAL INSTITUTIONS. JNEXT in importance to constitutional government local institutions take rank os the best means of consolidating and extending the benefits of rational free dom. Dr Southey remarked 6ome time ago-" A state is secure in pro portion as the people are attached to its institutions." On this account, therefore, it must be highly satisfactory to see the progress of a young com munity as it unfolds and applies its resources in the establishment of local institutions, whether they be for cha ritable, municipal, or industrial pur poses. It is to the last of these we have to call attention on the present occasion. Agriculture is universally allowed to be a primary element of national prosperity. To improve and encou rage this branch of industry, must ac cordingly be both the duty and interest of every good citizen and well wisher of the community. For this purpose, associations are the means acknow ledged to be most available an...

AN INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION. A ~ WORLD S FATE " in Ballarat ! who ever heard of such a thing? Well, who ever heard of a " great exhibition" in London, or Paiis, or ISew York, or Dublin, or Melbourne, before the idea occurred to one or two plodding minds, who cast the thought abroad among the people, where it sprung up, and grew, and eventually put forth fruit in the shape of the C rystal Palace, drawing to one centre, in one magnificent and peaceful congress, all nations with the products of their varied ingenuity and industry ? The project at home was denounced at first by shrewd sage men as Utopian and impracticable ; and so a similar project here will be perchance by some, and it will be successful ne vertheless. Resolution, perseverance, prudence, and means are indispensable ; and if ali these be not forthcoming it will be our own fault, and failure will be our shame, therefore, and not our misfortune. Hight glad are we to see that the projector of an exhibition at Ballarat upon th...
