MINING AT OMEO. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 17 June 1882
MINING AT OMEO. (Br VIATOR.) In accordance with the promise made in my previous letter on this subject, I again revert to it, with the object of giving a few additional particulars. Passing along the Livingstone Creek to Omeno Plains, I encountered several par ties of Chinese and Australian miners working the alluvial deposits, and both informed use that they were doing well, although not making any enormous finds. Altogether thero are, I should say, from 40 to f50 alluvial miners at work on this creek in andl about Omeo. At Swift's Creek matters continue favor able, and the reports front O'Reilly's Creek, a tributary of Swift's Creek, irc also of a satisfactory character. Mr. Peter Forsyth, an enterprising and experienced miner, is the owner of a rich reef near O'lReilly's Creek, and nhout nine miles to the westward of Mr. M'Millan's Jhnction Ilotel. 11e has, at various dsitances along the reef, .llank four different shafis to depths ranging front about 30 to 60 feet, and in every ...
SPORTING NOTES. WINTER RACE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 17 June 1882
SPORTING NOTES. WINTER RACE MEETING. A number of gentlemen interested in the initiation of a Winter Race Meeting assembled at Roberts' Commercial Hotel on Thursday evening for the purpose of taking tho preliminary steps. Mr. T. J. Burt presided, and Mr. Howard Stoney was unanimously elected secretary. The matter was fully discussed, and a very strong committee formed, after which it was decided to adjourn till to-day at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, when a meeting will be held at Burt's hotel to consider the question of finances, to arrange a programme, and to transact any other business which may arise. There has been considerable talk about a coursing minatch between Be Happy, the winner of the stake at the recent meeting at Sale, and a dog named Parnell. " Plenipo" cannot learn whether the match will really come off, and consistently deprecates that the parties concerned have not arranged their preliminaries if they really mean business. This next coursing meeting at Sale on the 3r...
OUR PAYNESVILLE LETTER. Friday, June 16. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 17 June 1882
OUR PAYNESVILLE LET''EIt. .(rROM OUR OWN CORnEBPONDENT.) Friday, June 10. The weather here lately has been of a very stormy character, and some heavy showers have fallen. We have been looking daily for some tidings of the schooners Martha and Mlaffra, as you may imagine that their long delay sadly inconvoniences us. Captain Macalpine is sorely troubled over the non-arrival of the schooners, as he is virtually at a standstill with his new steamer, and is delayed with her launching as the necessary timber and material to effect it is on the schooners. He has the engina beds all read. to screw down, and will, I hear, launch the steamer soon after the arrival of the schooners. The day of the ceremony will be a red letter day for Payneeville, and I am sure our old friend Archy will be justly proud when he sees the craft built by him slide into the water. Really, something should be done to induce the Shire Council to place a lamp on our jetty. It is now positively dan gerous for passenge...
MINING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 17 June 1882
MINING NOTES. A general meeting of shareholders in the Tambo and Bairnsdale Gold Min ing Company is convened to be held at Roberts' Commercial hotel at 3 p.m. on Thursday the 29th June, to receive the balance-sheet and auditors' report. The second meeting of the Gippsland Mining Board for the current year will commence at the board's room, Foster street, Sale, next Tuesday. We under stand that a large amount of business of an important and interesting character will be transacted. Mr. A. W. Howitt, warden, of Gipps land, reports that during last month a discovery of tin ore is said to have been made in one of the sources of Dead Horse Creek, on the road from Bruthen to Buchan. From inquiries which the warden lhas made he believes the report to be well founded. He cannot, how ever, express an opinion as to the value of the deposits, but the discovery is likely to lead to other and possibly very rich finds in the neighborhood. Thle samples of ore exhibited are very rich in pure metal....

The Advertiser. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY, THURSDAY AND SATURDAY MORNING. Bairnsdak, Saturday, June 11, 1882 TERnE are many subjects of an impor tant character to the mining interest which, we believe, will come under the attention of the Gippsland Mining Board at their meeting next Tuesday, but we trust that, in the crowd of busi ness, the members will not allow the question of the more frequent visits of the warden to this portion of tihe dis trict to escape their consideration. We have already said all that is requisite on this subject, when advocating from time to time the appointment of a second magistrate and warden for Gippsland. The recent diminution of the area of this vast district, by the excision of a town or two situated immediately on the railway line, will not affect the residents of the Omen district to their advantage, for the inclusion of the railway towns in another magisterial district will not per mit the warden to visit such places as Omeo more frequently than he...

The Steam -Navigation Board this morning resumed their investigation re lative to the foundering of the steamer Pretty Jane, which took place on the 81st May.

MELBOURNE HOURSE MARKET. Tuesday, Juno 18. AMessrs. CAMPnELL, PRATT and CO. (late M'Culloch, Campbell and Co.) report : Rates are keeping firm, with a steady de. mand, absorbing all fresh stock offered. The week's supply of country horses was again light, and much below the average of pre. vious months. Want of condition is, how. ever, no doubt one of the chief causes for holding back otherwise markotable stock. Droughts, omnibus and other suitable harness sorts have brought fair prices, and buyers are giving attention to these classes. Well trained buggy horses, carriage pairs and gentlemen's hackneys are wanted, andl goode figures have been obtained for the right stamp. Our sales have comprised : Superior harness and saddio horses, from £2 to £36 ; ordinary, £8 to f12 ; droughts sold from £20 to £42; lorry pairs £S5. Outside we placed one lot of Indian horses at a full price, and country mobs sold at our vards at £9 Ils to R10 5s and £16 Ss l r eard respectively. One lot of drough...

LATEST COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 17 June 1882
LATEST COMMERCIAL. Thllere has been rather a quiet business transacted in the import markets, and, with the single exception of a strong speculative demand for oats, the inquiry for produce has been coanfind to ieet ing current demands. lireadstuffs do not exhibit much alterationa biddings for what at auction perhaps a little brisker. Under the hammer 548 ubgs sold at prices ranging from ts 7d for medium up to Is 9d for good milling. Privately smtall sales are making at about those rates, but no large lines offering. Flour is quiet; small sales reporteld at £14 to £14 2°s tl. A sltollg speculative Inovement in oats was opened. In all, at auction, about. 450 bags sold at 4s 3d to -Is 5d. Privately the sales milentioned cover about 5000 bags in all, antl Is tid is now asked. Doubtless the advance will bring in sup plies frl'om outside s,,urees.
THE COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 17 June 1882
THE COIET. Mr. R. L. J. Ellery, Government astronomer, inform s us (Argus) that the comet, the appearance of which has been expected with general interest, was seen on Wednesday evening in moderately bright twilight, It was found exactly in tile place given by an epphemeris computed from Herr Lamp's (of Kiel) recent elements received by the mail. This comet promises to be a brilliant and interesting visitor, for after it had been once found it was distinctly seen with the unaided eye, although it was low on the horizon, and the daylight had only faded suffic'ently to render Venus and one or two of the brightest stars visible. This comet is remarkable for its large and planet-like nucleus and the great brilliancy of its head. The tail could be traced 8deg. or 10deg., rising vertically from the nucleus. From the ephemeris referred to the comet appears still to be approaching the earth, and as it will do so for several days yet, it may somewhat increase in apparent size. Its position y...
