MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 28 May 1851

MINING INTELLIGENCE. On Saturday last toe town was all bustle with Sydney merchants, equipages, and gold diggers. Some of the latter, having been more successful than their neighbours, had come into town to turn their gold into, negotiable money. Many parcels changed hands in the course of the day. The most interesting transaction of the day in every point of view was the sale of 7Ibs, 3 7/8 ozs. belonging to a company of four men of good character. Of this quantity 46 3/8 ozs. was in one solid piece, which was picked out of the earth by a poor but honest Scot of the name of Henderson. We learn from a gentleman who was near at the time that when the golden prize was first perceived by Henderson, he was struck both speechless and powerless, and fell prostrate on the earth. This piece is the largest which has yet been discovered. In shape it is an   irregular oblong, much of the shape of a shoulder of mutton, - with a transverse diameter of 5 inches and a conjugate of 4. ...

ISSUE OF LICENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 28 May 1851

ISSUE OF LICENSES. A single copy of the following regula tions in reference to the issuing of Licenses to intending gold-diggers, was received by the Police Magistrate by last Saturday's past. It will be perceived by the second rule that the pre-payment of 30s. for a cer tificate is necessary to enable any person to become a lawful gold miner. At first slight this amount appears rather too heavy, but when it is taken into consideration the great additional expense which will have to be in curred in the due protection of life and pro perty, by augmenting the numbers and pay Df the present very inadequate police force,' we do not feel disposed to complain, and it is to be' hoped that the well-disposed will lend their moral influence in the enforce ment of these regulations, by at once cheer fully complying with their requirements. It is perhaps at present impossible to de cide exactly in the absence of any. satis factory data, what is a fair and equitable tax, and the amount how fixed...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 28 May 1851

Uocal Jttellfgence. Serious Accident. — We are extremely, sorry to learn that Major Bowler met with an accident on Saturday last which may probably lead to very serious consequences. He was on his way to visit the diggings in company with Captain Scott when the horse on which he was riding happened to shy and threw him on the pummel of the saddle In consequence of the violence of the move ment one of the barrels of a doublebar relled pistol which he carried in his pocket exploded, lodging the ball in the outside of \ his thigh, a little above the knee. At the I same moment he was thrown with consider ! able force from the horse, and either from | this cause or from the stroke of the pistol I ball, a compound fracture of the thigh bone ' was the consequence. On account , of the peculiar position of the ball, we learn- that it cannot at present be extracted. The gal 1-mt Major is suffering extreme agony. Dr. Machattie is in attendance upon him.

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS AND MINING JOURNAL. WEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 1851. OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 28 May 1851

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS AND MINING JOURNAL. WEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 1851.     "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PRAEVALEBIT." OURSELVES. The pressing demands for early intelligence from the Gold Country have induced the proprietor of the "Free Press" to publish a single sheet twice a week from the pre-   sent time, instead of a weekly double sheet as hitherto, and so soon as the necessary arrange- ments can be made, it is his inten- tion to furnish his readers with three issues per week. To effect this very necessary change, an in- creased expenditure must take     place, and to meet it a trifling, ad- vance will be made in the amount of the subscription. To new sub- scribers the terms will be 8s. per quarter from the commencement of the bi-weekly issue, but as the circumstances which have rendered the change indispensable, could not be foreseen at the beginning of the quarter, and as the present subscribers to this journal could not t...

THE GOLD APPOINTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 28 May 1851

THE GOLD APPOINTMENTS. Our readers have already been made aware that the late Police Magistrate of Parra- matta--Mr. Hardy — has been appointed Commissioner over the Gold region and Mr. Batty as Commissioner of the roads, and they are also most probably aware of the fact that Mr. Hargraves has as yet re- ceived no appointment at all. Now with out questioning the wisdom of Government in making these appointments, or attempting to cast any doubt upon the general suit- ableness of these gentlemen for the efficient performance of their duties, we feel parti - cularly curious, and the same feeling of curiosity is very generally expressed by the respectable people of Bathurst, to know upon what grounds Mr. Hargraves is over- looked, or if not overlooked, why his claims     are the last to be considered. The " Sydney Morning Herald" has been at considerable pains to prove that the credit of discovering the existence of a gold field belongs not to Mr. Hargraves but...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 28 May 1851

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the Argus.) Intelligence from the Cape to the middle of February, has been received in Hobart Town ; and the following particulars of the   Kafir war, are taken, from the "Hobart Town Advertiser.'" The struggle seems to be a desultory and a murderous one, and threatens to be of long continuance :-— The Frontier Post, which came in late on Thursday evening, brought intelligence from King William's Town of the 29th ult., and from Fort Hare of the 31st ult. No move- ment of importance had taken place at either post. But a column of 2200 men under Colonel Mackinnon, was to move from King William's Town on the 30th instant, for the relief of Forts' White and Cox, On that day the report of field-pieces had been heard at Botha's Hill, the sound apparently coming from the direction in which the troops were to move. Captain Davies, late of the Kafir Police left Fort Peddie on the 25th ult., with about 400 men, for King William's Town, by way of Wesleyvil...

Original Correspondence. Ophir, May 24th, 1851. [To the Editor of the "Bathurst Free Press.") [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 28 May 1851

Original Correspondence. Ophir, May 24th, 1851. [To the Editor of the "Bathurst Free Press.) Sir,—People here are very much aston-     ished, and not a little displeased to learn that another gentleman has been appointed to the office which it was generally expected would have been given to Mr. Hargraves. I am not aware whether Mr. Hargraves re- mained here in that expectation, but I know that he refrained from working at the dig- gings, and with his knowledge of gold mi- ning I am satisfied that he could have re- alised much more than the government could have afforded to give him as Super- intendent or Commissioner. Some of us think it possible that a good appointment may have been reserved for him, perhaps as explorer of the colony. But should this not be the case, the present appointments   will be regarded in the light of a piece of shameless jobbery. Supposing, however, that government should prove be dread- fully ungrateful as to allow h...

Myself and five others have been hard at work all this' week, and I do not beliove that .wo have cleared our rations according to the rate provisions are selling, at. However, I think we may in some measure blame ourselves for our bad success, '. by not enuring Mb once upon the diggings already oppned. Some of us employed ourselves making cradles fee., to work with, whilst two more went down the crepk prospootiug.

Considering the difficulty usu ally experienced in getting anything in the shape of a public meeting together in our good town of Bathurst, in conjunction with the circumstance of so many of the towns people being absent at the diggings,- a very respectable muster had assembled by eight o'clock. Alter a little preliminary dis course, Mr. Rbtton was called lo the chair on the motion of Mr. Dunsford, seconded by M-. Farrand. Mr. Rotion stated in a few appropriate remarks, the objects, for which the meeting was convened. The following resolution was then moved by Mr. Jenner, and seconded by Mr. Arthur. That t...
