WALLABY POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 December 1851

AVALLABY POINT.' ' Tliis point, which is situated abont three miles from the township of Sofulai. has, until within the last few weeks been one of tho quietest and most orderly spots on which my lot has been cast since I commenced my career as a gold dig ger : but lately that accursed enemy to good order and social feeling, .'grog, has found its way amongst us, and it can now be readily obtained at two or three tents in^ this neighbourhood, where it is retailed, I can scarcely say on the 'sly,' but yet illicitly; and the nstr.il results, follow in the shape of gambling, -|iiarrclline, and fighting. There are also a few men walking about among the dig gers, carrying for sale a vile compound which they call 'rum,' rum enough by the way, for it makes those who drink, it feel, act, and talk after a very rurcuny fashion. One fellow called at my tent one-Sunday morning with a tin can, and two small measures in his hand, and very politely asked mo if I wanted a drop, of ' good stuff.' Anot...

THE LARGEST BREWERY IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 December 1851

THE LARGEST BREWERY IN THE WORLD. Messrs. Barclay,- Perkins, and Company's Brewery, Park-street, South wark, (situated on. the southern bank of the Thames, near to London Bridge); is the largest brewery in the world, and the chief of those which have made this ffreat citv the head auartera of malt liquors as well as of civilization. (?) The brewery— originally founded by Mr. Henry Thrale, the friend of Dr. Johnson, and whose house at Streatham was a home for the Doctor during his lifetime— was sold by his executors, (of whom Johnson is one), for the benefit of his widow, for £145,000. 'I could not,' says Boswell, ' but be some what diverted by hearing Johnson talk, .-. in a pompous manner of his new office, and particularly of the concerns of the brewery, which it was at last resolved upon should be sold.'' \ ?,'.-._- °Jjof d \&ucan tells a very g:oo'd story, which, if not precisely exact, is certainly charac teristic :— That when the sale of .

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 December 1851

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. A FORTUNATE MISCHANCE.— A few days ago Mr. Hawkins' gig- horse contrived to rub off his winkers against a post to which he was hitched,   opposite the premises of John the fruiterer, and startled by the novelty of his position, he dashed off at full gallop across the square, past the Church,   down George-street, up Durham-street, and then past the watch-house, at the back of which he contrived to raze a ricketty and time-worn conven- ience to its foundations. Proceeding in the di- rection of the Vale Creek, he rushed down its banks, and was only stopped after the vehicle had made three successive revolutions, and was consi- derably mutilated. The fortunate portion of the     business consists in the circumstance that he had a clear course and did not come in contact with any person in his career.               TICKET OF L...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. WENTWORTH DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 December 1851

MINING INTELLIGENCE. WENTWORTH DIGGINGS.   Mr. Daniels, I understand has lately been em-           ployed prospecting at the Wentworth estate at Fre- derick's Valley and has found three excellent         points to commence operations upon, and notwith- standing the heavy outlay in the first instance, there appears to be good reason for hoping that the specu- lation of the company now in course of formation will prove a profitable one. I have it upon indu- bitable authority that applications for shares have been made from Albury, Port Phillip and other places.     It is perhaps premature to anticipate the local   benefits which must spring from the working of such a gold mine as is known to exist at Frederick's Valley, but one cannot sometimes resist the tempta- tion. Not only must Orange become a place of considerabl...

BRAIDWOOD DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 December 1851

BRAIDWOOD DIGGINGS. (From the Goulburn Herald, Dec. 12.)   The whole of the diggins in this quarter ( Braid- wood) appear to be doing well ; hundreds are go-   ing and coming every day ; those who arc return- ing have reaped a good harvest and return home to spend the Christmas holidays with their wives and families. Vast numbers of experienced men arrive daily from the Turon and other diggins ; they ap- pear to know what places to set in at ; I have not heard any complain. Many new hands seem to say there is no room for any more on the creeks ; they only try places where a mob is at work ; were they to do as the Turon men do, I have no doubt they would succeed.   On Monday last 100, persons went to the new diggins on Captain Coghill's property ; many I have seen return and report it to be all a hoax. Great numbers are gone to a place called Muda-   wong where it is supposed there is plenty of gold, but I have not heard with what s...

THE LODDON DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 December 1851

THE LODDON DIGGINGS. (From the Geelong Intelligencer.) The Daily News says that the prospects of the Mount Alexander gold field are brighter than ever, and the yield most     abundant. All the efforts of the Press in the neighbouring colonies will be unavail-- ing to keep keep their population at home. Facts are stubborn things. Several men, recent arrivals from Van Diemen's Land, have returned per the Screw Steamer with from one to two hundred pounds each, to settle their affairs, bring over their families, make purchases, and return to the diggings. When the success of these men becomes generally known, the influx from the island will be very great.     It is added by the News, that it yester-   day conversed with an intelligent man   from the diggings, who had just returned with his party of four, having, after four days work lifted twelve lbs . weight of gold.     &nbs...

GOLD NEWS. OUR GOLD NEWS IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 December 1851

GOLD NEWS. OUR GOLD NEWS IN ENGLAND.. (From the S. M. Herald, Dec. 12; ) The announcement in yesterday's Herald that the news of our gold discovery had not reached England was premature. The ad- vices by the Vimeira's mail prove that the intelligence was known on the 30th of Au- gust. We have been favored with a sight of two letters, one from Messrs. Dunbar and Sons to Messrs. Smith, Campbell and Co, and the other from Mr. Smith (now at home) to Mr. Alexander Campbell. The earliest informant would seem to be from Captain Bloomfield, of the Mazeppa, which vessel left Sydney on the 30th. May; and the cap-   tain posted a letter at Madras for Messrs. Dunbar and Sons which was in London pro- bably on the 29th of August. Concurrent   with this is the fact, that a second party on the 30th, offered to sell the secret to Dunbar and Sons; and in the course of the same day a third person called at their office, being in possession of the "great fact." One of the latt...

A TRIP TO THE TURON. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 December 1851

A TRIP TO THE TURON.     A visit to the Turon on Saturday last, the first we have been able to pay it, convinced us speedily that a very imperfect conception of what the place really is, can be formed from all that has been spoken and written about it. The: valley of the Turon presents a scene so utterly unlike any other which an an individual has seen elsewhere, no matter how extensively travelled, unless perchance he may have visited California, that no description, however minute, or laboured, can. faithfully depict   things as they present themselves to the eyes of the beholder. From the first appearance of the won-   derful little town of Sofala, which bursts upon the view as if by the. stroke of an enchanter's wand, to a minuter examination of its component parts, and a careful inspection of the industrial operations of   the diggers on the banks of this once unim- portant stream , everything has a novelty and &a...
