LETTER TO THE EDITOR. "THE DERBY DAY." [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 February 1865

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. "THE DERBY DAY." Bin,-will you be good enough to permit me a ohort space whilst I briefly reply to the letter of "Enquirer," in your impression of to-day. "How can it be the original picture?'' lean give no better answer to that question than the sentence printed and published in front and on the back of the pamphlet furnished to the spectators who visit tho picture, viz., "that the picture was sold to Mr Jacob Bell, who bequeathed it to the nation, subject to Mr Gambart's right of having the picture to engrave and exhibit." If Mr Gambarthas the right to exhibit the picture, he only makes nse of hia pri vilege in bringing it here. Perhaps "Enquirer" does not understand tho nature of copyright. A few days ago I was asked, "Is this the original pic ture?" I answered, " Why do you ask such aques tion?" " Well, I have ju6t left the company of seven or eight gentlemen, one of whom distinctly affirmed tliat «The Derby Day,' now at Mr Baird's is a copy right picture."...

The Ballarat Star. DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 16th FEBRUARY, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 16 February 1865

DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 16th FEBRUARY, 1865. THAT Ministers should Lave proposed to put a tax on bread does not surprise us. Neither does it excite the slightest astonishment that a majority of the members of the present Legislative Assembly should have liailed the proposition with ecstatic de light. In tho colony of Victoria, in the year of grace 1SG5, taxation re ceives its apotheosis. It is raised aloft for the public to admire and worship. it is en shrined among the Gods. There cannot pos sibly be too much of it for the public stomach to receive. In a normal cunditiou of society taxes irritate the public palate, aud impair j the public digestion-here and now they are rolled like a sweet morsel UDder the tongue, swallowed with a sensuous relish-and assimi lated? Well, that remains to be seen. How far they will agree with our constitution has yet to be proved. As free-traders our opi nion of course goes for nothing with the protectionists, and it is useless to expostulate with pers...
