Journal of the Dublin Statistical Society Vol.1, Part VII, 1856
How has it happened that the colony of Victoria — occupying a
central position with regard to the other Australian colonies, and
possessing a fine soil, a genial climate, and greater mineral wealth
than any other part of the globe — has caused disappointment and
ruin to thousands of emigrants, and even became at one time the
scene of bloodshed and civil war ? This is the question which I
shall this evening attempt to answer: not so much from statistical
details as from my own observations made on the spot.
