Thlree men have just arrived on Ararat, from a sojourn of some length on the celebrated Snowy River. The parties are Adelaide men and are now on their way back to that place. They were at Kitndra for a space of eleven weeks, and between a party of five of them theyonlj earned five ounces of gold, sinking during that time a great number of holes, doing a good deal of prospecting, adtrying all the streams and creeks in tle locality. In oh tainin? five ounces of gold they were rather.lckier thlun the generality of miners, many of whom got positively nothing, and were onlysubsisting on the money which they had brought with them.
