DELIVERY OF MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 17 January 1856

DELIVERY OF MAILS. The following .answer to the petition fonvardsd. to town, in reference to the delivery of the mails in Sandhurst,- has been received from the Post-' master-General. The manner in- which that func tionary disposes of the .affair is pretty cool, and whatever consideration he may evince fpr the hard wrought officials of Post Offices, he seems to have very little far the convenience of the general public. TheMpa-'of justifying the course pursued here by "tWexample of Melbourne is ludicrous, for there is; hardly a public office in the colony more in want' of a thorough reform than this same General '-Post Ofii.e, • !

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) 11th January, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 17 January 1856

MELBOURNE. IFEOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) 11th January, 1050. Some new specimens, not of gold, but of magis tevklMecisions, have been received from Ballaarat, which have excited considerable interest in town, as exhibiting the sort of justice which is adminis tered to the miners in that district. In the olden time such things were not uncommon, for anything in the shape of a Justice was good enough for the diggings. Times are changed, and with that change the system must be altered. When Crowner's 'Quest law was administered on the gold fields, with impunity and without question, there was 110 local Press to record the decisions of those gentle men, and they in consequence passed unnoticed and unredressed. It appeare that a woman named Mary Osborne wns brought before Captain Vignolles, the Midas of Ballaarat, charged with habitual drunkenness. It seems that the unfortunate woman wns notorious for her propensity to drink, not only at Ballarat, hut at Bendigo, though it is difficult to...

MARYBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 17 January 1856

MARYBOROUGH. There has been serious inconvenience lately ex perienced at Maryborough and Ballaarat by some diggers puddling their, stuffin the Deep Creek, and erecting a puddling machine adjacent. 'Die Correspondent of the Argus with reference to the quartz reefs says :—" At Mariner's Reef, Blackmail's Lead, the yield is improving as the miners progress with their operations. Twenty five pounds of gold were obtained out of twelve tons of quartz from a shaft two hundred and forty feet deep last week, crushed and amalgamated by Messrs. Jaincs and Co.'s machine, on M'Callum's Creek, who are giving the miners great satifaction la this important branch of quartz working." (From the Correspotident of the Argus.) January 11th, 1856. On Saturday evening last, a public meeting was held at the: Golden Age, Maryborough, for the purpose of taking into consideration the propriety of petitioning the Government either to form Fiery Creek into a separate County Court district of itself, or attach i...

THE OVENS. (From the Ovens and Murray Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 17 January 1856

TlIE OVENS. /Pram the Ovens and Murray Advertiser.) Great Rush at the Gap.—On Saturday last one of the most extensive rushes which have' ever occurred in this district took place on a large flat at the Gap, seven miles from Beecliwortli, on the Bucklancl-road, and about half a mile to the left of the track. \Ve are informed that at one time there were more than 2,000 persons on the ground, hut as the sinking is deep and none of the holes are yet bottomed, shepherding is extensively carried on, and the actual number of diggers engaged in sinking is about 000. The flat is situated at the foot of very lofty ranges, and is certainly a likely looking place. The depth at present reached is 40 feet, and it is not yet known whether machinery will be required to work the claims or not. Seve ral good prospects, varying from three to eight and a half pennyweights to the dish have been got from the surface, and a prospect of about eight penny weights has been left at our office for the inspec t...

CRESWICK'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 17 January 1856

C'RESWICK'S CREEK. A good many small rushes are taking place, but though many are doing well, nothing of a decided lead or character has been discovered. The largest of them is between the Seven Stars and Union Hotels, and parties are washing from half-an-ounce to an ounce to the tub. Some of the sinking, which is quite dry, is, however, through twenty and thirty feet of rock, There are several others where dig- gers are doing as well, and the sinking not so deep or hard. Mr. Thatcher is giving concerts at the theatre, aasisted by an able company.

THE EPSOM RUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 17 January 1856

THE EPSOM RUSH. The following letter, drawn up by the Com- mittee appointed by the diggers at Epsom, and addressed to Messrs. Benson, Owens, and Grant, was forwarded to town this morning, and an answer may be looked for in two or three days at farthest. [COPY.] Gentlemen,— We are deputed by a public meet- ing of the miners of Epsom, held on Dr. Back- haus's ground, to communicate with you on the subject of allowing the diggers to follow a lead of gold when it runs through land alienated from the Crown, which, from its proximity to old goldfields, ought never to have been sold. We are aware a select committee is deliberating on this subject, but, unfortunately, much time has elapsed since its formation, and the miners are impatient at the delay. You will perceive from to-day's Advertiser and Courier that the property of several gentlemen here has been rushed, and unless the Government, without delay, comes to some satisfactory conclu- sion, a collision between the authorities and the...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 17 January 1856

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) Considerable excitement has prevailed during   the last few days, on account of the late events at Epsom. On Monday last the diggers, by arrange- ment, rushed private property in the neighborhood, marked out their claims, and agreed to commence sinking at eight o'clock the next morning, leaving their tools in their claims during the night. Du- ring the day they were spoken to by the owners of the property in question, but to no purpose— cries of " Humbug" and " Don't you believe it" drown- ing the expostulations of those whose land was invaded. On Tuesday morning the diggers assembled, and after some discussion a meeting was formed, and some speeches made on the subject of rushing the property. Some were against invading the rights of private property, while others thought they had a right to follow a run of gold wherever it existed. At length Mr Roper happily suggested that it would be foolish to rush headlong into a whi...

CASTLEMAINE. (From the M. A, Mail.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 17 January 1856

CASTLEMAINE. (From the M. A. Mail.) Quartz Reefs on the Coliban.— Upon the Coliban reef, situate on the Coliban River, about three miles from Kyneton, eight or ten shafts have been sunk, and all have turned out tolerably rich. One of Bordan's machines is working on the ground, and produces from three to six ounces to the ton. The reef, it is ascertained, crosses the Coliban, and enters the range in the direction of Kangaroo Creek, which is about one mile distant. The population on the reef does not include more than 40 persons. The reef at Kangaroo is yielding well, as much as 150 ounces having been taken from two tons of quartz, taken from claims which are expected to yield as much as 100 ounces to the ton. Three machines are in course of erection. Population about 200. There has been another irruption into Mr. Taylor's ground near Castlemaine by the diggers in Mopoke Gully, but on being remonstrated with they quietly retired. Several patches of new ground have been opened, and gra...

THE SCHOMBERG. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 17 January 1856

THE SCHOMBERG. On Monday last Captain Forbes, the late master of this vessel, wns brought up at the District Cqurt, upon   an information under the recent Shipping Act, 17 and 18 Vic., c. 104, s. 100. The allegations set forth in the information charged Captain Forbes with neglect and omission of duty on the 26th December last, when the shipwreck of the vessel occurred. The charges were of a vague and general character. Proceedings had been previously taken at Williamstown, which have not been yet decided. Mr. Gurner, who appeared in support of the information, stated that the present was but a preli- minary inquiry, to have the defendant committed for trial upon such information as might be hereafter laid against him.   The Bench thought that the summons ought to dis- close, some one or more breaches of duty clearly set out : - it ought to disclose some specific charge. The case was ultimately ordered to stand over till Thursday. Mr. Read, who appeared for...

BALLAARAT. The question of forming Ballaarat. into a Mu I nicipal district is beginning to interest the public at that goldfteid.

CALIFORNIA. EXTRAORDINARY DISCOVERY.—GREAT EXCITEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 19 January 1856

CALIFORNIA. EXTRAORDIKAIIT DISCOVERT.—GREAT EXCITEMENT. Tlic Democrat Slate Journal (Sacramento), October 20ill publishes the following account of ail extraordi nary gold discovery in the southern mining districts of California. A new gold fever has seized the people of Tuolumne country and the southern mining district. If we may credit the statements of the Union Democrat and Sonora Herald, a discovery more wonderful than any that struck the world with amazement in 1H4H and 1H41), has .been made recently near Sonora. The heads of tli? cautious traders of Sonora, who liave lived safely through a hun dred gold fevers, seem fairly to be turned by the new ex citement. Table Mountain which has been almost undisturbed by the miners during the last live years, is the scene of the discovery. Some enterprising man, whil • cutting n tunnel, has found that the mountain was, at some ancient day, the bed of stream, and that it contains gold iu unprecedented quantities. The Democrat says that:— ...

The measure having received the concurrence of a majority in Parliamant, its adoption was considered secure, and so it would be, if our public men were guided by those principles of political consistency and good faith which regulate the conduct of men responsible to tlierr-own consciences, to. their con stituents, and who are anxious to establish a cha racter for honor, independence, and a strict ad herence to the principles of a political creed, recognised and acknowledged by a section of. the , people, who can look upon ...
