CABINET MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 1 September 1856

.CABINET MAKING. ({From the Sydney Morning Herald.) The public will be shortly invited to inspect a new and curious piece' of workmanship, which is intended to be set up in tho Council Chambers. This piece of furniture, which is to be placed on the right-hand of the Speaker's chair, is remarkable for the grotesque combinations it exhibits-r-some of the most unlikely material having, been used up in its construction by the ingenious artificer. Some fears are entertained by those who have inspected it in the artist's workshop, that it will not harmonise with the general character of the House, which is known to be one of extreme simplicity; but the maker, is confident that, if allowed a couple of months to polish it up, hejwill bo able to justify his taste. The Cabinet, we understand, jyjis been submitted to the inspection of the Governor General, who was pleased to express his approval of it, and this approval it is expected will be re echoed by the whole Empire. It was the intention...

Sydney Correspondence. SYDNEY, AUGUST 29. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 1 September 1856

[?] J ?'' SYDNEY, AUGUST 29. To upset a cpaeh in our colonial roads is no hard matter, but, as Hudibras says on another subject, * '- - I s . ? ? Is as fiicilo ?- As to Blackbird, 'tis' to whistle.

STONEY CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 1 September 1856

STONEY CREEK. (From the Bathurst Free Pres.) On Wednesday morning we received a visit from a gentleman who had just returned from Stoney Creek, bringing with him upwards of two hundred ounces of gold which he had purchased at that place. He also informs us that a party connected with the Bank of New South Wales, who came over from tho Meroo, pur chased upwards of £2000 worth, on Saturday last, and, but for want of money, could have purchased a considerably larger quantity. This account given by our friend is on the whole of a very encouraging character, and inclines us to believe that there is a fair prospect of the richness of the gold-fields in the Welling ton district being properly tested. Though the number of fresh arrivals is by no means so great now as it was a few weeks since, there are a fewer leaving. The population, including about 250 Chinamen, numbers about 2000, who are scattered over an area of at least twenty miles, and now that the drones and the waiters on Providen...

Mining News. ROCKY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 1 September 1856

Jllittiug $m. ROCKY RIVER. .(From the Ilerald's correspondent, August 15.) ' You must not look for much this week, as the news is rather scanty. A great number of Chinamen, at least 300, have arrived during the last fortnight. They are a useless set of people for developing the resources of a gold-field. They will not look about, to try a new place, but wherever they can make enough to subsist upon there they will stay until something better turns up. The diggers are very much troubled with them, lor they will drive a-head until they are stopped, whether into their .own claims or anybody else's. In my last I mentioned that Tipperary Ranges had turned out well, but I am sorry to say they have turned out blanks. There are about twenty shafts 6unk opposite Tipperary, but as there are. none bottomed, I cannot give you the result. An extract in your. paper stated that wages were being made at Tipperary ; but I am sorry to .inform you.itis untrue, as there were only two shafts bottomed, a...

BRAIDWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 1 September 1856

BR AID WOOD. ifJThe correspondent of the Goulbum Chronicle says: -I believe the quantity of gold that will be taken down by. escort next fort night will be very large,, as there is a good deal of the precious metal on hand at the digging's, including some fine nuggets, weighing from two to six ounces. A few days back a shocking accident occurred at the Little River. A person named M'Cormack had been drinking, and his wife left the tent to look alter .mm. jLmring lier ausence tlie tent caught lire, and the chil dren at, home were severely, and in three cases fatally injured. In one instance the child vrus dead .before assistance of any kind could.be rendered, and two others lingered in dreadful agony for a few hours, when death put an end to their sufferings. A fourth child, a girl, though severely burned, is now doing well, under careful treatment. A great many of the diggers who left for Stoney Creek haye returned again, and intend setting to work in earnest, to make up for. lost t...

THE TURON. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 1 September 1856

THE TURON. (From the Bathurst Free Press,) Since T last wrote we have had several rushes ; the first about 3 miles up the river, but at that place only one party has done any good. The next was to Golden Point, and the prospects of the parties who were fortunate enough to get claims there are so very good as to have brought on another attack of the gold fever ; we have also had another rush down the river, about 1 4 miles, where the gold has been met with in such quantities as to induce the party finding it ,to apply to the commissioner for seventy licenses ; but I am happy to say that he would not grant more than ten, there being five men in the party, and I am told it is his intention not to grant more than two to any one man. This will be a very great improvement on the old plan of giving as many as were asked for. This is the fourth rich spot this party have pitched upon within the last twelve months. Indeed, in one of there claims I saw about half a. bucket, of washing stuff .w...

The want of care is strikingly observable; .-sheep are seen depasturing ? there ; gates there nre, but ,.off the hinges; the paling fence is gone in places; altogether the ground is. open to intrusion. If casual visitors note these things,, it follows that the f...

THE NEW OPPOSITION AND THE NEW MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 September 1856

THE NEW OPPOSITION AND THE NEW MINISTRY. The opposition intended to be offered to the re-election of Messrs. Cowper and GaijpbeijI. for the city was withdrawn. Its promoters were not successful in obtaining a person willing to stand in opposition to the Premier and his colleague. 'Mr. Thomson declined on proper grounds, to re-enter the arena of political life in which he had fought ao long, and retired from, if not with benefit to the colony, at least with profit to himself. Mr. Tooth, recognising the truth of the proverb ''Discretion is the better part of valour,' followed his example.' Dr. Duigan was thus 'left 'all. alone in his glory.' Messrs. Cowper and Campbell will certainly gain no laurels by defeating this gay descipleof iEscuLAHus. It is a pity, however, that the good people of Sydney should' haVe been put 'to tho excitement, trouble, and expense of a contested election by an opposition hopeless, aimless, and ludicrous.

Towards this desirable state of things the re election of the members who vacated' their seats by accepting oflice is necessarily tho first step after the appointment of a new Ministry.

The Premier was proposed by Mr. James Norton, and seconded by Mr. John Campbell ; Mr. Robert Campbell, by M^i Parkes and Mr. Edward Butler. Mr. Cowper addressed the elec tors in a long and able speech, in which, after defending the policy^ of his party, he proceeded to enquire into the post management of the various departments of the Government, in nearly all of which, he said, the most culpable negligence had been 'suffered to exist for a long period, without any effort to remedy it.
