THREE DAYS LATER NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 1 January 1856

THREE DAYS LATER NEWS. By the arrival of the Fiery Cross from Liver pool wc have papers to the 9th of October, inclu sive, from which wo extract the following news of the day:— LIVERPOOL. Tuesday, Oth Oct., 1865. We are now indebted for the latest news from the seat of war to Russian telegraph. Prince Gortscliakoff tells us that the Allies are moving • about, hovering over the llu?siann as eagles soar | over their prey; und ikit the allied fleets arc gone—he knows not where. The tone of'-the Prince's despatches resembles that which charac terised his reports immediately previous to the fall of Sebastopol, apparently indicating a foregone con clusion. They betray less confidence than was usual formerly, when the General lied to write what his master delighted to publish. The news by tho Thabor, which arrived at Mar seilles on Saturday last, speaks of the bombard ment of Odessa; but this may be doubted. A circumstance so important would have been com municated by telegraph from Varna....

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 28th 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 1 January 1856

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUIl OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 28th 1855., It is now generally believed that Mr. Nicholson lias succeeded in forming a Ministry, and, if the list put forward by the Argus this morning be correct, it would appear he lias acted upon the policy I suggested in my last despatch, that the vote upon the ballot should not be made a ground of objection against the liberal members who voted in the minority. Though the Government made the ballot a cabinet question, it did noc follow that all the members who voted against it regarded it in the same light. The ballot is nothing but a means to an end, involving a choice between open and secret voting, which, in a new country like this cannot foirly be considered a test of any poli tical creed. Even in England, where the* ballot is absolutely required as a protection for the free exercise of the franchise, in many of the towns, and throughout the whole of ths counties, it is made an open question in the Cabinet. It is noiv deci...

WRECK OF THE SCHOMBEltG.—ALL OK BOARD SAVED. It is with sincere regret that we lmve totannomicethe wreck of this splendid ship, of the Black Ball Royal Mail line of clippers.

About three o'clock mainsail was split, ami a new one set, and the ship uiade sail for hours, a strong breeze Wowing, and then stood in on the opposite tack, till, as the captain thought, lie was within three miles of land. About half-past ten p.m., as the ship approached land, the wind fell. About a quarter to eleven orders were given to put the ship about, but there was only a breath of wind off the land, and she missed stays, the current drifting the wbole time to the westward at the rate of four miles an hour.

THE BENSON COBRESPONDENCE. | To the Editor of the Bendtao Advertiser• Sir,—X realty think it would be hardly worth the while of Mr. Benson to reply to (lie interesting epistle that appeared in yoiir paper of Saturday last; but as a believer in Mr. Benson's sincerity of purpose and thorough knowledge of the working of the Government both here and at home, I am disposed to say a few words in vindication of the steps taken by oar representative ill the present matter; and in so doing, I give utterance not to my own solitary opinion, but to the opinions of many of his supporters, and not the imaginary constitu ents spoken of by Junius. I thiuk nearly every one will admit we are not at pre sent in a sufficient state of preparation to throw off our connexion with the mother country, and consequently the welfare of the colony must in some degree be affected by the measures adopted at home. The great evil all along has arisen from the ignorance in which the home Government has been kept in ...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 1 January 1856

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER,) We hear in our travels opinions frequently expressed of the general ignorance of miners respecting quartz working in this district. Often we are asked, Where am I to obtain any rules for finding a reef? If I go to those who are working profitable reefs, they say that they are good, but they know no reason, can point out no sign of why or how they are better than their neighbors. One will tell you that a good reef is always covered at the cap with sandstone ; another that his reef paid from the surface ; one man that he has sunk money without end on such a claim, and that Tom, Dick, and Harry went into it, and struck gold at once. In fact a stranger arriving on Bendigo for the purpose of prospecting working in quartz, feels much like the men disputing about the came- leon, who, on production of the cause of contention, after severally declaring it to be black, blue and green, discovered it to be white. The fable goes on, that when the ...

DISPOSAL OF THE RACE-COURSE RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 1 January 1856

DISPOSAL OF THE RACE-COURSE RESERVE. The trustees of the race-course reserve, in the exercise of a sound discretion, determined to take the sense of the public on the question whether the Reserve should be surrendered to the diggers or not. Accordingly they convened a meeting on Saturday last, which is fully reported in another column. The meeting was very poorly attended, because the diggers and the public were evidently not aware of its real character. However, the resolutions which were passed are such as are likely to meet the views of the public generally, and had there been two thousand persons present, instead of twenty, it is certain that similar resolutions would have been adopted. The course which will now be taken by the trustees was pretty clearly indicated by Mr. Pan- ton. They will surrender the reserve to the Go- vernment, and recommend that fair compensation, be given to the owners of landed property in the vicinity. In fact there is no other course, for, a &...

MOUNT ALEXANDER DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 1 January 1856

MOUNT ALEXANDER DIGGINGS.   Castlemaine (Campbell's and Barker's Creeks, Muckleford, and Tarrangower.) — Mining and agricultural pursuits generally successful. Several reported new quartz veins have been discovered. Many applications to work portions of the different roads, have been granted on payment of deposit. Many parties have left Barker's Creek, and many arrivals have taken place from Mount Blackwood. The wet sinkings about Moonlight and Penny- weight Flats are again commencing. Population, exclusive of Chinese, nearly 10,000. 10 steam engines, 104 puddling machines, 125 sluices. FRYER'S CREEK.— Some rich ground has been opened on the Back Creek, and the population has greatly increased there during, the last fortnight, and it now begins to assume the aspect of a regu- lar goldfield. A large population seems settled there for the summer. A good many have left the Kangaroo diggings during the fortnight, but a new lead has been struck on Butcher's Hill, which will ...

CATHERINE HAYES' GRAND CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 1 January 1856

CATHERINE HAYES' GRAND CONCERT. This concert took place last evening at the   Princess' Theatre, and a tolerably numerous and   highly respectable audience welcomed the fair Songstress of Erin to Bendigo. With all the dis-   advantages of a room utterly unfitted for displays of vocalisation, Miss Hayes impressed upon her delighted auditors a conviction of that surpassing excellence which has won for her so celebrated a name wherever she has visited. The great charm of the singing of Miss Hayes is the natural eloquence with which she renders the music and the words, both blending in one beautiful and harmonious expression of pathos or humor. Singing, with her, is not a conventional repetition of a series of notes, as with the great majority of singers, and hence her success. In addition to this rare quality, this distinguished cantatrice possesses a voice of great sweetness, re- markable power, and extensive range, over which she possesses the m...
