MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE TURON. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 14 January 1852

MINING INTELLIGENCE THE TURON.         The matter most worthy of notice just now at the Turon is the daily arrival from Sydney, Maitland, and other parts of the country, of gold diggers in large numbers— some of them afoot, carrying huge packs, consisting of what may be termed a very compendious miner's outfit, and reminding one, as they toil their heavy way up Wyagden mount under a blazing sun, of Bunyan's pilgrim     climbing the hill of life with his huge load of sin   upon his shoulders—others with all the requisites of a digging campaign, amongst which the pump and the Long Tom take a prominent part, packed house-top high upon a horse or bullock dray, surmounted, in not a few cases, with their wives, their children, and their household goods. A crazy cart will occasionally heave in in sight, drawn by a crazier horse, and containing a very scanty equipment, under the superintendence of tha...
