DEPOPULATION OF THE HIGHLANDS OF SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 January 1856

DEPOPULATION OF THE HIGHLANDS OF SCOTLAND. The following remarks with respect to the infa mous policy pursued by Scottish landlords in de populating the country, are from one of the letters of " Atticus,'" the London correspondent of the Afle, who shows remarkable vigor, ability, and originality in his communications :— "What Ireland, with all its misfortunes and miseries, has escaped, seems about to befal the Highlands of Scotland—an absolute depopulation. The Dukes of Argyle and Sutherland, the Mar quis of Breadalbane, and other noblemen, first drove out thousands after thousands of a brave, gifted, and chivalrous race, to make room for sheep, and now they are driving out the sheep to make room for deer and other game. In ull the deeds of modern despotism, there is nothing more infamous, more cruel, than these wholesale clear ances. And who are the perpetrators > The noi siest of our aristocratic saints, the most ostenta tious among our aristocratic patriots, aristocratic phila...

THE BENDIGO ADVERTISER. PROGRESSION, OUR RIGHTS, AND OUR RESOURCES. SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1856. THE MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 January 1856

THE BENDIGO ADVERTISER, PROGRESSION, OUR RIGHTS, AND OUR RESOURCES. SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 18SG. THE MINISTRY. It fe still doubtful who are to occupy the places of the lata Ministry, op whether the latter will be rie-instateif in office, The decease of Sir Charles Hothani'wiU in all probability cause some delay in coming to a definite arrangement, but we are inclined to think that it will be come to more easily >'jon this account. It is almost certain that some of the /^difficulties of the Ministry were caused by pecu liarities in the character af the late Governor, and these of. course will .now disappear. But in -the event of Haines and Co. being reinstated, we can scarcely agree with the Argus that they will quir etly swallow the ballot. After the explicit and decisive opinions enunciated by the chief members composing the Ministry, it is scarcely to be credited that they would perform suclji'anaet of political Jim-Growism, and, if they did, they could hardly expect to preserve ...

LATE ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 January 1856

LATE ENGLISH NEWS. The Russians at the north side seem to remain in the same position—.strengthening it. rl.ny by day with new redoubts. The fire across the roads increases in frequency and severity every day, and we have to record the loss of two men in the Buffs and a few trifling casualties, from the enemy's guns; but the mortal's of the French'must have caused serious injury and impediment to the Russian workmen, and have greatly damaged their magazines. The Russians have sunk some guns on the north side, and have succeeded in get ting the range of the town and Karahelnaia suburb on the south side. They have also kept up a frequent fire from Fort Constantino, and from the large square stone-work generally spoken of in camp as Fort Michael, but marked in plans as Fort Sukaia. From this latter fort howitzer shells have been discharged against the west side of the south harbor, but they have done little harm. The principal French mortar battery is concealed by the long range of bui...

Dutv was paid oh 3G07 oimccs for export, chiofiy for Sydney; there were 310 ounccs for Hong Kong, on Chinese account, and a few small shipments for other ports. Trade continues to bo remarkably dull: no transactions are re. ported, and no decided improvement is looked for until the middle of the month. One noticeable featuro of the present season is the almost entire absence fif digging community in Melbourne.

OUR UNFITNESS FOR SELF-GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 January 1856

OUR UNFITNESS FOR SELF-GOVERN MENT. It is extremely edifying to notice with what modesty the opponents of a Municipality, or the croakers who let " I dare not wait upon I would, like the poor cat i'tli adage," make the admission that the people of this district are unfit for self government. " It's an ill bird that fouls life own nc'st," and we have a number of such disagreeable fowls on Bendigo. What do the people of this district think of the craven and gratuitous admis sion that they are not to be trusted with powers of self-government, because, we suppose, tbey would make such precious fools of themselves. The relaxing climate of Bendigo is fatal to energy and intelligence. At Ballaarat the air is more bracing, and the people are in consequence more vigorous aed self-reliant. But not so on the ci devant Metropolitan Goldficld. We are twitted" with the remark that the resources of the district are failing, and we suppose with the failure of gold goes hand in hand the failure in i...

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) 2nd January, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 January 1856

MELBOURNE. frnoM our own coiuikspondext.) 2nd January, 185G. Sir Chnrles Hotham is no more. He departed tliis life on the last day of the old year, and on the first day of the new all the authority vested in the Governor, now defunct, devolved upon Major General Macartliur, the senior military officer in command of her Majesty's forces, in the colony. Such is tlie narrow step between tho height of power and the silent depth of the grave, whencc the gentlemen dressed in a little brief authority may learn a lesson profitable to thom and to us. We are told we are to say nothing but what is good of tho dead. It would be much wiser if nothing but the truth was said either of the living or the dead. Of Sir Charles llotham there is little to be said, further than that lie was totally unfit for the post to which lie was despatched, under a system of patronage which discards from its power of nomination the notion of putting the right man in the right place. Sir Charles Hotham has'fallen a v...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE (To the Editor of the Bendigo Advertiser.) Again, Sir, magnum bonum in hand, I rush out of my log hut, not on this occasion to attack, but defend myself from the formidable " punches" of your questionable correspondent, who so ruthlessly assails me in your journal of this morning. Considering the marvellous transformation of sex im plied by that profoundly learned and Quixotic creature,   it is not very extraordinary that its mental faculties   should have become excessively disordered, and that   having tried some imaginary analogy between our worthy       and respected Coroner and the immortal Phillip of   Macedon, it should further gross under the harrowing delusion that the aforesaid high official had—like his, illustrious predecessor—actually fallen a "gory sacrifice to the iniquitous asperations of "a certain obscure surgeon"   to become famous by aim...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REFORTER.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 January 1856

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) Work is now again fairly resumed, and never at this season did our miners enjoy the supply of water they now possess. At the Myers' Flat dig- ging operations are quite brisk. At Peg Leg, Sailor's Gully, Sydney Flat, &c. the quantity of water is unprecedented. In all the tributaries to these gullies and the neighboring flats, &c., those who formerly were but winter visitors are now busily working out their summer. In Eagle Hawk the machines are turning with their wonted acti- vity, while California, Job's, Long, and Iron Bark Gullies are all similarly situated. At the rush at the foot of the New Zealand Gully down to the Dead Horse Flat, the number of diggers remains about the same. At the lower Eagle Hawk and Jackass Flat the diggers are on the increase. The Chinese camp at the Eagle Hawk White Hills is almost deserted in favor of the junction of the Long and Iron Bark Gullies, where the sinking is shallow, and much su...

FIERY CREEK. (From a Correspondent of the Herald.) 30th December. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 January 1856

FIERY CREEK. (From a Correspondent of the Herald.) 30th December.   I was surprised on seeing the Weekly Herald, to find that at the close of Dr. Blunt's examination it was stated that he was committed for " wilful murder." You will not find this in my report, and it is untrue, the charge being " manslaughter" only. Please to correct this in your next issue. The wet sinking here goes ahead. The lead is about three or four holes wide, and those who are on it are doing well. Some time must elapse before it can be carried down to the flat, but when it arrives there the sinking will be 100 to 120 feet. Four or five holes which were prospecting have been obliged to knock off, as with twelve men in a gang they were unable to keep the water under. One hole which is down 95 feet, has 75 feet of wa- ter in it. Under these circumstances it is not to be wondered that so many are leaving the place, and that with the exception of a few stores in the vicinity of the deep sinking, ver...
