LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE WATER COMMISSION INCORPORATION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 13 February 1865

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE WATER COMMISSION INCORPORA TION BILL. Sia,-I have observed that this is a matter in which you take aome interest, and justly 80, as the importance to this district of a water Bupplv such as the bill "is intended to secure cannot be overrated; and I trust that the efforts of a few inividuals to throw out the bill, which will secure such a great public boon, will be unsuccessful. I would not have troubled you with the present letter had not some of the opponents of the bill, in their places in Parliament and elsewhere, endeavored . to show that the provisions of the bill were monstrous-that the Councils were seeking a municipal endowment I in land to the extent of 13,000 acres, that they I sought power to enter any man's homestead, and I without compensation cut it up by constructing water works there-that many mining claims, saw. mills, and farmers were situated upon the reserves and no provision made for compensating the ownera -that the Bill proposed to g...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 13 February 1865

IRELAND. After sitting for two-aud-twenty days the Belfast Commission lias closed its inquiry. The public proceedings iD court seem to have come to aa end very quietly, and, if one might say so, with unex pected suddenness. Before the commissioners re tired, the counsel oa both sides alluded to the fair ness with which the inquiry had been conducted. In connection with the commission, the Belfast cor poration ore bestirring themselves to make a case against the summary remodelling of the local police, which it ia feared the commissioners will recommend. Some of the worthy aldermen and town councillors seem much hurt at the notion of the Government interfering with their pet force, and do not appear to ba altogether sure that the l^te riots, including in their results eleven deaths and a fortnight of anarchy, aro any argument in favor of a total change. Indeed, one gentleman, named Lswis, formerly mayor of the borough, ex pressed his astonishment at the town council meet ing, that an...

ENGLISH MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 13 February 1865

ENGLISH MISCELLANEOUS. Lord Palmerston has been making one of those cheery effusions at Homsey which delight every one merely from their honhommit. He did not say any thing to speak of-which was not neceBsary, and perhaps not possible. But he expressed onco more ; those hearty sort of feelings about the English dv J nasty, the English army, the English agriculture and the English press, which, when they flow from Lord Palmerston, cheer people just as one is cheered after an absence to find the river running in its old place, or the old tree tossing its branches ; in the old way. When Lord Palmerston remarked on the large crop of " charlock" where turnips should have been, and generally on the " variety of ! colors that ornament the stubble," every one felt that he had made a hit,-that Roinaey had not been entirely deprived of its constitutional right to a Palmerstonian joke. It was all the more enjoyable too, for coming after that weighty utterance, which' ; mutatis mutandis, is the...

The following in a brief abstract of the principal speeches delivered during tlio debate: Signor San Martino, once .Lieutenant-Governor of Naples, opposed the measure, and urged that the Venetian question ought to take precedence of the Roman, and that if the conditions of the time ren dered war at present impossible the government ought simply to set about restoring the finances to an equilibrium.-The Marquis d'Azeglio, being un well, sent a written address, which was read, and which approved of the convention.
