THE INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION. | To Walter Triller, Esq. (Ter favor of tte Star.) MY DEAS. "WAT. -Toa have decided in your own mind, that to induce the realization of such an institution as an Industrial Exhibition on Ballarat, ? is tor) much of a task for even our enthusiasm. ' Tou tell me, it is a very migratory population, this of ours ; and you doubt that such a people could not be taught to consider the .benefit and the glory of our intention..

'Tis, I might sav, a familv hcri tance of the Twillers. Toa have always doubted. I would that you would cease to doubt, and try your hand at something your self, just to find out that something can same times be realized.

I MINER'S RIGHT LEAD. ¡ I (To theEditor of tlve Star J j Sm,-Allow roe to draw your attention fo; j the corruption now riding rampant at the i Miner's Sight Lead. I have it from good i authority, viz :-one of the committee, that the | claims on the said lead have never been filled j up, with the fall compliment (eight men), but with only six or seven sames, thus leaving one i or two vacancies to be filled np by those who can drop a pound or two, to get nearer the j bottomed claim. ! I am íníonaed, there are individuals, who 1 have their names registered, three or four times over on the said lead, exclusive of having interests in other shares. I had my name re gistered about three weeks since, hoping to get a share, and' I have been walking about ever siice, but can get uo satisfaction, whether I have any share on thc lead or not. At the public meeting, this morning, the misers were ag¡tin humbugged by being told, that nothing could bc done this day, because the surveyor, forsooth, w...

THE STAR TUESDAY, 28th OCTOBER, 1856. LIGHTS AND SHADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 28 October 1856

THE STAR TUESDAY, 23TH OCTOBER, 1856. . j LIGHTS AND SHADOWS., j TÍTERE is a good deal of sober troth in the old maxim which warns people against '* having too many irons in the fire." Chesterfield enjoined upon his sonthe practice of always îittendrâg to the one thing in which he might be I engaged, in order to ensure the nearest possible approach to perfection. Both i these c unsels have for their basis the [ principle that to effect any given pur pose the efforts of the individual must not be dissipated over too \idde an area or embrace too great a number of ob jects- This shows tts the necessity of selecting, from a runge of matters all admitted to be important, those which are the most exigent for pur fi; st atten tion and disposal. The desirableness of some regard being paid to this principle of action by the people of Ballarat just now, appears sufficiently evident to call for some notice. The columns of the local press teem with schemes and sugges tions of every kind and deg...

DRINKING HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 28 October 1856

Without any. affectation ofaseeti cism one may safely denounce the ek tremes to which the habit of drinking ardent spirits and less fiery compounds is carried hère. There 7caiiJbe so reasonable doubt that the habit is in jurious, whether regarded from a moral or a physiological point of view. It would seem that the practices to which we refer, and which, do not require to "W described inore minutely, are not confined to Australia. The following remarks from the New York Time$ are so pertinent to our colonial customs, and so pregnant with Warning to-ns, that we make no apology for repub lishing them i-^'Xhie of ¿be first and most- unpleasant impressions which the foreigner must receive on coming to this country is the apparency chro nic thirst of the inhabitants. To drink appears to him to be the chief end in life of the American. Every undertaking, no matter how grave, must be baptized in a cock-tail or a sling. Every sentence a man utters must he moistened with a julep or a cobbler...

MELANCHOLY SUICIDE. Yesterday, at five o'clock, Dr Clendinning held an inquest at the Swan Hotel, on the Township, on the body of Mark Le Behien, a Frenchman, who had hanged himself the same morning in a cottage situated close to the hotel. The following was the evi-dence produced:— Edmund Ray deposed—I went to the de- ceased's house this morning, about half past 11 o'clock, to post a bill for letting the house. On getting near the house I noticed that the back entrance hand been forcibly broken open. I then looked and saw the deceased half kneeling and suspended by a blue and white neckerchief to a rafter in the kitchen. The deceased's feet were touching the ground, and his knees were considerably bent. I then called for assist- ance, when a Mr Lorimer came and cut him down. He was quite dead when he was cut down. I could not say whether he was cold.           George Lorimer corroborated the evidence of Ray. &...

I " The commencement," he continues, " of this pernicious practice deserves to be noted ; a practice the more likely to become pernicious the more a nation advances in" opulence and credit. The ruinous effects of it are now be come apparent and threaten the very existence of the nation." Such was the opinion of one of our calmest and most philosophical historians.
