MONSTER MEETING OF THE BUILDING TRADES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 3 April 1857

MONSTER MEETING OF THE BUILDING TRADES. On the 12th January, upwards of 10,000 -persons, principally operative builders, met in Smithfield. The Morning Star of the 13th says—The open space in Smithfield market presented a novel and serious spec tacle yesterday afternoon, and one which ought to convince members of the House of Commons that the time has come for giving up our quarrels with foreign coun tries in order to try a little legislation at home. Thousands of the working classes connected with the building trade complain that they cannot get employment, and a vast crowd of them assembled to explain their position. For want of any other more practical remedy, they passed reso lutions which intimate that they will go to the workhouses in large bodies and claim relief, and that they will memorialise the Queen to give them employment on the waste lands of the country, and to grant them loans for prosecuting labor. In ad dition, the meeting resolved to ask Govern ment to give them t...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 3 April 1857

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. MISCELLANEOUS. Mr. Brotherton, M.P., for Saltford, died very suddenly on the Wednesday'before the Columbian sailed. ' Much sympathy had been excited in the public mind by the announcement of the death of Hugh Miller, editor of the Edin burgh Witness, and author of several cele brated popular works on geology. It ap pears that Mr. Miller had overworked himself in finishing a new geological work. —" The Testimony of the Rocks," and his brain became disordered. It was difficult for him to sleep, and when asleep was sub ject to attacks of nightmare. He believed that he would be attacked by ticket-of leave men, and not only slept with a loaded pistol beside him, but carried one about with him after dark he had also a broad bladed dagger at his bedside, and behind him at his bed head a claymore stood ready at hand. A medical postmortem exami nation-was held, and the medical men ar rived at the following' conclusion:—" The cause of death we found to be a pistol shot t...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 3 April 1857

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Melancholy Accident.—We have the painful duty of recording the sudden death of Mr. John McKenzie, of the Al berton Hotel, who was struck dead by lightning on Friday evening last,, whilst returning home from the Little River in his boat, accompanied by his youngest son ; after he was struck he instantly fell overboard and was not heard to utter   single word. The poor boy was left to the mercy of the waves for two nights and three days, but was providentially drifted   into Welshpool on Monday, where he re ceived every kindness and attention from Mr. E.

CURIOSITIES OF AMERICAN MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 10 April 1857

CURIOSITIES OF AMERI CAN MACHINERY. In a work recently published in Paris, M. Commetant recounts the particulars of a great number of novel applications of machi nery, but I have only space to speak of one of them. All the world has heard of the manner in which pigs are killed in Cin cinnati, at the establishment of Messrs. Borello and Hinglington. "Messrs Borello and Hingling ton's factory," writes M. Comme tant, "consists of four distinct blocks of buildings, connected with each other by suspension bridges, it is surrounded by a considerable extent of ground, entirely covered with pens, in which are innumerable pigs, be longing to various owners, who have brought their pigs here to be killed, just as in Europe we send corn to a mill to be ground. The pen nearest the factory, acts as , a kind of " hopper" to the slaughtering machine. It has a moveable side, which, is so con nected with, and acted upon by, the machinery, that, as the pigs leave it, one by one, it contracts the. spac...

CORRESPONDENCE. PROPOSAL TO FORM A PROSPECTING PARTY. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian March 30th, 1857 [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 10 April 1857

CORRESPONDENCE. PROPOSAL TO. FORM A. PRO . SPECTING PARTY. To'theEditor of the Gipps Land Guardian ~ : , March 30th, 1857 i Sir,—It has lately been my lot to travel over a very considerable portion of tlie gold fields of this colony, and I must say that the more I have seen of them the more do I feel satisfied that the a'olden resources of Gipps Land are yet undeveloped, and that many tons of gold lie buried under the surface of land in close proximity to the settled portion of the lower district. I will begin with the gold fields in tlie neighbourhood of Castlemaine. Many of the ranges and gullies bear a striking re semblance to those beyond YarramYarram in the neighbourhood of tlie Tarra, the: Albert, and the Jack; and some years ago, before the Castlemaine district was stripped of its timber, the resemblance must have been still greater. Then if we go on to Bendigo we find there many small gullies or vallies with gentle rises, (they can scarcely be called ranges), similar in appe...

A PEEP INTO THE BANK OE ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 10 April 1857

A PEEP INTO THE BANK OE ENGLAND. The Bank of England must be seen on the inside as well as out, and to get into the interior of this; remarkable building, to observe the operations of an institution that exerts more moral and poli tical power than any sovereign in Europe, you must have an or der from the Governor of the Bank. The building occupies an irregular area of eight acres of ground; an edifice of no archi tectural beauty, with not one window toward the street, being lighted altogether from the roof or the inclosed areas. The ordi nary business apartments differ from those in our banks only in their extent, a thousand clerks being constantly on duty, and driven with business at that. But to form any adequate idea of what the Bank is, we must pe netrate its recesses, its vaults, and offices, where we shall see such operations as are not known in Wall-street. I was led, on presenting my card of admission, into a private-room, where, after the delay of a few moments, a messenger...

The Council met at three o'clock, the president in the chair, when, in pursuance of resolution there was a call of the House, and, among others, Mr. Thompson was found to be absent, but was excused on the ground of having gone to Gipps Land, under medical advice, for the benefit of his health.

SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 10 April 1857

SALE. [FHOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] " T am. glad to be able this week, as a pleasant1 contrast to my last report, to be able to give your readers welcome news of the Omeo diggings. It appears then that within the last few weeks, the number, of men employed in mining has considerably increased, and as a natural consequence, the yield of the precious metal larger than has been previously known in this locality since it has existed as a gold field. I was lately shown a very fine sample both of the Omeo and Nicholson gold, in all, about 400 ounces. That obtained from Omeo bears a very remarkable re semblance to the Californian gold dust, though larger and apparently of a greater degree of purity. I have frequently han dled the Californian gold dust and seen it assayed, and have also, with much care, examined that from Omeo, so that my opinion is not altogether valueless. There certainly appears to be a disposi tion to work among the majority of the people settled at Omeo, but the monste...
