It is the only one bottomed on Sebastopol Hill below the level of the gutter. It has no second shaft : the air, in consequence, is excellent, and the   working easy and expeditious.         "The gutter only, in the three claims, has been worked, the reefs on either side re main entirely untried - the ground ought, therefore, to pay a second and smaller party well.'   The drives are strongly timbered, the tramway in good order, and there is very little, water; in short,there is every con   venience and inducement for a further trial of the ground, and a more promising spe culation for a second party does not exist on Ballarat.     The shaft and ground, till sold, are, open for the inspection of parties desirous of ...

THE STAR SATURDAY, 25TH OCTOBER, 1856. DISTRICT ROAD BOARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 25 October 1856

THE STAR SATURDAY, 25TH OCTOBER, 1856. DISTRICT KO AD BOARDS. ONE pf the greatest achievements of real statesmanship is to combine the advancement of local improvements with the genera) interests of the body politic. And on the other hand the political charlatan and the legislative tyro usually evince their narrow mindedness or ignorance by their zeal for local, without reference to general interests. This mode rf action is not -confined to local institutions, it is also to bc "fcrand in central boards ; but wherever it is discovered it should be denounced as unjust and abandoned as mischievous. lt is on this account therefore the constitution and govern ment of local "institutions should be 'narrowly watched and guarded in the commencement of their career. ? The District Road Board just formed, of which a report appears in another column, is generally regarded as a de cided and most material -advantage to the neighborhood. It certainly is high time that something was done to re mov...

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 25 October 1856

ULTRA RIGOUR OF SABBATH OB SERVANCES.- The ground on which we are opposed to the ultra-rigour of Sabbath observance, especially when it becomes coercive, is the. danger of injuring the conscience. It is widely taught by St! Paul that he who docs anything .with offence, i. e., with a feeling that it is wrong. To him it is wrong, even though it be not wrong abstractedly. Therefore, it is always dangerous to multiply restrictions and requirements beyond what is essential ; because men, feeling themselves hem med in, break the artificial barrier, but breaking it with a sense of guilt, do thereby become hardened in con science and prepared for transgression against" comfcaandments which are* Divine and of eternal obligation. Hence it is that the criminal has so often in his confessions traced his deterioration in crime to the first step of breaking the Sabbath day -, and no doubt with accurate truth. But what shall we infer from this ? Shall we infer, as is so often done upon the platfor...

DISTRICT ROAD BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 25 October 1856

DISTRICT ROAD BOARD. Yesterday afternoon, at two o'clock, a public meeting was held at the Court House on the Camp, to elect the members of the District Road Board. The meeting was well attended, several farmers from the neighborhood of Dow ling Forest being present. lt was moved and seconded that Mr Turner, the stipendiary magistrate, should occupy the chair. It was also mored and seconded that Mr R. Muir take the chair ; but upon its being understood that the chairman elected would only be the chairman of the meeting and not of the Board, the second proposition was with drawn, and Mr Turner then took the chair.

On Thursday, at two o'clock, a meeting of the subscribers to the hospital, and of the public generally, took place at the Charlie Napier Hotel, for the purpose of hearing the report of the provisional committee which had been formed in the first instance to establish the hospital. About twenty persons only were pre- sent. M. Elliott, Esq , occupied the chair.   The Chairman said that he was sorry to observe so few persons present, as it shewed the miners took very little interest in the Hospital.

GOLD DEPOSITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 28 October 1856

GOLD DEPOSITS. No subject bas been discussed with greater interest in modern times than the formation of those accumulations of gold in the bowels of the earth which are the objects of so much anxious search. And on no subject, perhaps, has less light been thrown, leading to positive and well-established know ledge. Theories without number have been promulgated to account "for the presence in certain localises of the pre cious metal ; but while the ingenuity displayed in many of. these theories may be readily acknowledged, it is im possible to feel Satisfied with the prin ciples on which they are based or the dogmas they would force upon us. In an English periodical of a popular rather titan a scient.fic character we recently met with some facts that ap pear to furnish a clue to the formation, - or at least the deposition of gold in the earth Some of these facts we quote ; ttnd, though they may not carry conviction to the minds . of- our readers, they will not fail to excite thought...

MONTEZUMA THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 28 October 1856

MONTEZUMA THEATRE.. Mrs. Stowe's celebrated work " Uncle Torn," illustrative of slavery in the " Model Eepublic," has furnished the dramatist with .materials for exceedingly impressive stage representation; and in many instances the theatre has proved a powerful auxiliary to the cause of emancipation by bringing out most effectively the salient points of repulsiveness in .a system so univer sally abhorred by every true lover Of liberty, equality and fraternity.-Eva, or " Stray leaves from ÍTncle Tom's dabin,"? is the titre of a piece put upon the stage at the Montezuma on Saturday night, with great success. The com pilation, is r mainly due to Mr Vinson, the talented gentleman who accompanies Miss Quinn' in her tour; and, who, in'this play, takes the part bf Uncle Tom, Miss Quinn of course, being the Eva of the story. We were j not surprised to see a crowded house on the j occasion, as everybody is familiar with the book whence the play is taken; and everybody ; looked to see in Ann...
