FOREST CREEK DIGGINGS, MOUNT ALEXANDER. November, 23rd. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 13 December 1851

FOREST CREEK DIGGINGS, MOUNT ALEXANDER.       (From the Correspondent of Melbourne Argus.)                       November 23rd.   Since my last, the escort has not returned, and there are many very uneasy on account of their non-arrival. A large quantity of   Gold is now lying at the Commissioner's ready for transit. Symons and Perry having lodged 600 ounces, and that is only a small part. Gold still continues to be found in large quantities. Three parties have ob-     tained in nineteen days 360 ounces; another of five got yesterday 2½ lbs; another party     of four weighed at Messrs.

Sidney. PRODUCE CIRCULAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 13 December 1851

Sydney.     PRODUCE CIRCULAR.     The animated state of our wool market, as no- ticed in our last report, has received additional im- petus by the further advices from England per Blackwall, extending to the end of August. The se-   ries of sales at London comprised the largest quan- tity of Australian wools ever brought forward at one period ; notwithstanding this, prices were not only fully maintained, but had a decidedly upward tendency to the close, a matter of more than ordi- nary significance at a period when events, altoge- ther unexpected, were to give a check to the pro- duction of' the staple in this, the largest wool exporting country in the world. Tallow continues to maintain our full quota- tions, and considerable transactions have taken place by private contract at £28 for beef, and £29 for mutton. The prospect for boiling during   the next season is still most promising, and the yield of the...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 13 December 1851

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE.     (From the Adelaide Times. )       In a number of this journal we announced on the authority of the Mauritius papers, that the   state of the Cape colony was most alarming, that the Kafirs and rebel Hottentots were rapidly pene- trating into the heart of the British territory, and   that Port Elizabeth and Graham's Town were in   danger. We now add a few further details to   confirm what we then stated. They are gathered principally from the Port Elizabeth Telegraph, of       the 21st August.       A committee of defence at Graham's Town were   in correspondence with the Governor at King Wil- liam's Town. In a letter to his Excellency they   describe the serious dangers that threaten the     country, and call for immed...

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS AND MINIG JOURNAL. "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEBIT." WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1851. MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 17 December 1851

THE JATHOjlST JREE PEESS AND ' MINING JOURNAI-. 'JUGNAEST VERITAS ET PR^VALEBIT.' WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1851. MININft INTELLIftENOE- ^ The population of the Turon diggings is rapidly decreasing from three causes— the flooding of thcr creek by occasional thunder-storms— the natural and commendable tendency homewards of the mar ried to spend their Christmas in the bosom of their families, and the highly wrought accounts from tho Araluen, Braidwood and other diggings in the Goulbum country. Largo numbers are now, and have for some time been leaving daily. On Sun day morning last, about 100 diggers, some afoot, others on horseback, and not a few with carts. and other vehicles passed by way of Two-mile Creek downwards. Besides the causes already ?enumera- ted, many are returning to the Hunter'; and oilier places to get in their harvest. Sheep Station Point, formerly a hive of industrious red and blue shitted men, now presents an appearance not unlike- a new grave-yard, with its numberl...

Sib,— Perhaps you will be good enough to allow 3 space.in your valuable paper for 'a few remarks1 a my mission to the Turon. ? When I arrived at the diggings I was. cordially welcomed by several persons, .and especially by Mr. .'?ohn White'law from Port Macquarie. That gen .leman very kindly offered me accommodation during my stay— a favour of considerable value.in ?n place where lodgings were not to be had. This generosity made my residence far more agreeable than it could otherwise have been. I preached every Sabbath three times, — on the last one four times. The services were held in the open air, except those at Sofala, which were held in the tent erected, there. A tent for preaching at each station is an absolute necessity, and no doubt will soon be obtained. Tho congregations varied in number from one hundred to two hundred and fifty. They ?were invariably prof...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 17 December 1851

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. NEW POST OFFICE. — We understand that the   house recently built by Mr. Lonergan, near Mr. Neal's Albion brewery, has been rented for the Post Office, the present wooden structure having been very properly condemned as insecure. The great objection to the place is its distance from the centre of the town ; but in the present dearth of business premises suitable for such a purpose, the selection was like Hobson's choice, matter of neces- sity.   SLY GROG-SELLING.— On Wednesday last, James Foster of Long Creek, district of Mudgee, appeared before the bench on a charge of sly-grog-selling, preferred by John Fairchild. It appeared from the evidence that Constables McDonald, Green, and Clements had been sent by the Chief Constable in the direction of Mudgee in pursuit of an offender, when their attention was directed to the residence of the defendant as a place where an illicit trade in spirits was carried on. Their steps were accord- &am...

THE ARRIVAL OF THE GOLD IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 17 December 1851

THE ARRIVAL OF THE GOLD NEWS IN ENGLAND. It will be remembered by many of our readers that some weeks before the public announcement of the fact that gold was being found in large quantities at Summer- hill Creek, a letter was published contem- poraneously in this Journal and in the He- rald, by Mr. E. W. Rudder, affirming that a "gold field had been discovered extending   over a tract of country about 300 miles in length." This letter, which was published on the 4th of April, had reference to the discovery of Mr. Hargraves, which was not yet made public. The announcement of Mr. Rudder had reached England and was crea- ting some little sensation before the sailing of the Blackwall, as may be gleaned from the following extract of a letter to a mercan- tile firm in Sydney, dated Birmingham, Au- gust 18th: "Although, as you are aware, our con- nections with California have been very li-   mited, and we have not hitherto received many of their auriferous lumps,...

As vou wish to be in possession of. the news from the several diggings, however trivial, you shall have mine plain and unvarnished. . There are not many miners at work, the majority having left for other diggings ; but the few strag gling parties still left are generally doing well iu the. old; digging? where they chance on a spot not previously worked.

It appears from an advertisement in another .column that the Turon gold diggers are but ill satisfied .at the unceremonious treatment of iheir petition in the legislature, and that a meeting ia convened for Saturday next to take the subject into consideration. Such a course of procedure might have been ex pected or- the bare supposition that the miners are ordinary men, possessed of the feelings common to humanity, and entertaining some sort of notion of their rights. And if they had not afforded some such manifestation of disapproval, the community at large would have strong reason to suspect that their griev ances'. Were unreal, their complaints.foundecl in disaffected selfishness, and their petition a mere effervescence of popular agitatipa.
