RESIGNATION OF THE MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 22 December 1855
RESIGNATION OF THE MINISTRY. We have received the following communication from Mr. Benson, member for 13endigo, relative to the resignation of the Ministry, which will show that our representatives are at theii posts :— (To the Editor of the Bendigo Advertiser.) Melbourne, Dec. 20, 1855. The Ministry have given in their resignation this day, and I believe Mr. Nicholson has been sent for, so that I expect there will be considerable excitement before we get the Government recon structed. The mining members and their friends meet to-morrow, at twelve, so as to be prepared for any emergency that may transpire, and we hope to establish those principles of action that will be productive of benefit to the colony. Yours smcercly, ROBERT BENSON.

MACPHERSON Se CO., Auctioneers, Horse Uazaar, Pall Mall. • Joiiss'k Horae Repository, Bendigo, December 21st, 1855. ; The races, combined with the plentifnl fall of rain we have enjoyed this week, have caused a wonderful ac tivity to nnimate our horse market. Prices still rule low, but sales have beeu effected for almost every liorse entered in the yards. Indeed, on Wednesday laBl, so lively was the demand, that not a single lot was left un sold.

"CROWNER'S QUEST LAW." [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 22 December 1855
" CROWNER'S QUEST LAW." First Clown: Here lies the water, good; here stands the man, good : if the taan go to this water and drown himstflf, it is, will he, nill lie, lie goes; mark you that: but if the water come to hihi; and drown him, lie drowns not himself; argal, he, that is not guilty of Ilia own death, shortens not his own life. Second Clown: But is this law ? First Clown: Ay, marry ia*t, Crowner's quest law.— Hamlet. In tlie days of Will Sliakespere, it would seem that " Crowner's quest law" was pretty much the same ridiculous thing that it is at present, to judge by the trenchant sarcasms of the immortal poet. Recently we have had an illustration of the man ner in which Coroners and Coroners'' juries may trifle with the liberty and the feelings of men, and make " Crowner's quest law" if not so absurd as that discussed by the two clowns, at all events a great deal more dangerous. It is, perhaps, un_ necessary to say that we now allude to the recent case of Dr. Wall, which a ...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 22 December 1855
MINING INTELLIGENCE. rrnoM oun mining reporter.) The recent rains have had the effect of causing renewed activity among the diggers, and washing is carried on again extensively. The rush at Epsom still continues the chief fea ture of interest among the digging of this district, and although we hear of instances of ill-luck, still on the whole the diggers are doing remarkably well. The rush is extending, and the number of the diggers is increasing. They are looking anxi ously for some determination being come to by the Legislature with respect to digging on private lands in the vicinity, and unless this is arrived at speedily, they will most assuredly rush the ground. Already they have tunnelled some hundred feet beneath it, and they are determined to follow the lead as long as it lasts. The race-course too will be rushed now that the races are over. The ques tion respecting the throwing of this open to the diggers has been referred by the Government to the trustees, and it will be n...

THE BENDI&O ADVERTISER, PROGRESSIONi ODB KXG1IT8, AND OUU ItEBOOKCKS. ' . SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1855. VOTE BY BALLOT. ,, Tnn lengthy debate upon the ballot has termi nated, and Mr. Nicholson's resolutions in favor of this system of voting have been carried by a ma jority of 33 to 25,—a larger majority, as ihn Argus states, than was anticipated. " The division list," that journal goes on to say, "shows that, it we can be said to have any political parties here at all, the fate of the ballot has not been dependent upon party movements. The only party that has acted as a political party is composed of the Go vernment officers. Otherwise, squatters and anti squatters, voluntaries and anti-voluntaries, mem bers for populous diggings and members for the solitary Loddon, find themselves in unwonted fellowship on the division list," We find that our three Bendigo representatives,—for we may fairly claim Dr. Owens,—have voted in favor of the reso lutions, as indeed have all the memb...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor of the Bendigo Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 25 December 1855
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor of the Bendino Advertiser.) Sir,—Two consecutive letters, written by medical men, have recently appeared in your paper. They refer to the conduct of the Rev. Dr. Backhaus in ordering an accoucheur from the bedside of a patient. As no satisfactory reply has as yet been given to the question of Dr. Backliaus's authority for so doing, per mit me to make a few observations on the subject. Ths question at issue is simply " Whether a clergy- ! mau, under any circumstances, has authority to separate j the doctor from his patient ?" and if so, " Whether the llev. gentleman above mentioned had such authority ?" ] I need not tell vou, Sir, that it is at all times a nice point to distinguish the relative positions of tbe clergy man and physician in certain cases, anil it requires a considerable amount of delicacy, discretion, and gentle man-like courtesy oil both aides, when they meet at the bedside of a midwifery case. But to come to the ques tion at is...
