MONTEFIORES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 25 June 1851

MONTEFIORES. The fact of gold abounding in the neighbour? hood of this township has been amply illustrated by Mr.JEJale, watchmaker, of Sydney, who produced a piece of about an ounca weight, and of the. greatest purity, which he informed us had been taken from near Mitchell's Creek. Mr. Hale, who has a small party in the creek, .also produced some fine specimens of rubies, and platinum, which had been discovered by himself and friends with the gold. To the inhabitants of this town the an nouncement caused no surprise, as the existence of gold in Mitchell's Creek and its vicinity had long been known. We understand from respectable authority that the ' Gold Finder,' as he is termed —Hugh M'Greggor, has joined Mr. Stewart and a party from Sydney, with the intention of examining the creek, and some other places near this town, where M'Greggor found his first specimens. As most of the iuhabitants still remain at the 'dig- gings' we have had no opportunity of forming a prospecting party a...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal." [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 25 June 1851

Original (Korrespontfence. To the Editor of the 'Bathurst Free Press   and Mining Journal.' Sir, — It has with great truth been re marked, that more knowledge can be ob- tained from observations of man and the world, than can ever be obtained by the usual system of tuition. This assertion must stand self-evident, particularly when we bear in mind that any object can be perceived in proportion to the amount of light we are enabled to thiow upon it from surrounding parts ; and the various opinions of man if properly studied in connection with our own, will greatly extend our knowledge. Consequently, notwithstand ing the very great deal that has been writ ten concerning the gold prospects of Ophir; having just arrived from the diggings, I   hasten to offer my ideas of the subject, and in doing so shall endeavour to classify them under heads. The first important consider- ation will be, can the system of gold dig- ging at present carried on at Ophir con- tinue ...

Country Intelligence. MOLONG. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 25 June 1851

Country Intelligence. (From our various Correspondents.) MOLONG. The Gold Field has at last been found to extend to Molong. During the past week a gentleman of undoubted veracity whilst travelling a sheep run by way of duty, came unexpectedly to a man washing the alluvial deposit in the Molong creek, at the foot of Gohanno Hill, and saw him take out some pieces of fine gold. This must tell its own tale with regard to the auriferous deposit being spread over an extensive area, and many of our neighbours who are now at Ophir will, no doubt, shortly find it more to their interest to rock their cradles nigher home. This week a party of seven Sydney speculators passed here on their way to Wellington, headed by M'Greggor, the gold finder, to work the gold discovery made by him some years ago, which he has wrought at intervals ever since. The party is well provided with all necessaries, including even miner's tools, with which they pur- pose to open a quarry in the quartz dyke that produce...

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

MINING. INTELLIGENOB. \ Sincb our last very little has transpired worthy of recording. In the early part of the week Mr. Hardy started forthe Turon diggings, but has returned to Ophir. What arrangements are in process '.' for the collec tion of the license fees at the Turon we are .riot _awfuV; but it must be. pretty clear that another Commissioner will ha required for that region, -as to collect the, tax with any degree of efficiency -at Ophir, both the Commissioner and' assistant: Commissioner will be pretty fully occupied.; ' ' M From the best sources we learn lhat there are now about 500 people at the Turon dig giuge, and that the nurnber is daily increas ing. Thoie who go about their work with any degree' of aptitude are earning from 8s. to 15s..a day. In some, cases as much as £1 a day has been earned, and in others less than 8a. ;, but all agree in stating that any working man with ordinary industry will make his; 10s. per, diem.. It is all work and no luck so far as the Turo...

atolonfal j&efos. Gold at thb Crookweli.. — According to th- expectation of Mr. F. Oakes, as expressed in our last communication, gold as been fonnd at the Crookwell; twenty-two small pieces were obtained' by ' washing. About one hundred pieces hava since been found, and forwarded to Sydney. We believe it has not been found in anything1 like such quantities as to pay for the labour required to ob taia it; but Mr. Oakes, and those engaged with him. deserve the best thanks of the whole com munity for their exertions in endeavouring to de velope the resources of thi3 district ; by his exer tions the existence of gold has been put beyond a doubt. In connexion with this subject a letter has been received by Dr. Waugh, (chairman of the meeting held for the purpose of raising a sum to reward tho first discoverer of gold in tho district of Goulburn), from a person named George Ed wards, who states that eight years ago he picked up some pebbles in the bed of the Fish River, with what...

The Vale Rovd. — For years past tha road; from Bathurst to Queen Charlotte's Vale has, ilur-1 ing the winter or rainy seasons, been all. but im passable by reason of the existence of puddle holes at frequent and uncomfortable intervals, so th*t travellers from George's Plains and the Mountain Run must either endure tho pleasures of a mud bath or make a circuit of the country to avoid them. Considering that there are many people residing1 in that direction, of wealth and respectability, this barbarous condition of one of the principal outlets from the town, is not a very creditable circum stance. By a little exertion on their part, t'ie nuisance might long since hive been removed. We are glad to learn that one or two public-spirited individuals contemplate moving in the matter, by calling a meeting and opening a subscription, to which every farmer who travels the road ought in justice to contribute a trifle, either in the shape of cash or labour. The gentlemen who have pro perty in t...

THJi BATUURST FREE PRESS 0nK Jttfnfng ^journal. '.SATURDAY, JUNE 28, .1851. '?MAGJTA BSX VI3RITAS ET PKJEVALEBIT.' THE VALUE OF GOLD. It is rather a singular coincidence that just - at the time of extensive gold deposits being discovered in the district of Bathurst, the probable effects of a large influx of ,gold from Calfornia and Russia should be at tracting the attention of capitalists both in tho mother country and the great commer cial powers of the continent. In one of our first articles upon Mr. Hargraves' discovery, we incidentally remarked that the -value of gold 'mast depreciate with its abundance, and a contemporary to show the. folly of auch a supposition instances the fact lhat ?thirty-six tons of gold annually imported into Eoglandhad not yet affected any alter ation in the standard value of that metal.

Original Correspondence.   To the Editor of the "Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal."   Sir,— Since my last communication I have heard of Mr. Hargraves being appointed Commissioner of Crown Lands, with a good salary, and a Magistrate of the colony. These marks of distinction having been awarded by the highest authority in the land must be satisfactory to him, creditable to the Go- vernment, and gratifying to the public. Arts and sciences have ever been held in high estimation of which there are many instances on record. Al- ready has the name of Mr. Hargraves become in- corporated in the history of Australia,       Whose shining gold and emeralds gay,             Will drive effulgence through the solar ray.             N.
