A CHINESE MILLIONAIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 June 1860
A CHIcNESE MILLiONAIRP,.-The Chinese in terpreter at Ararat has gone home with a fortune of 06000, made principally by trading in opium and other articles of Chinese indulgence and con sumption. A correspondent of the Ararat Ad vertiser says:-He was an intelligent, little fellow. Standing opposite to me, as I write, is a great Chi?n ornament that he gave me, repre senting the front of a Joss house, with halfa dozen grotesque figures in front of it-a "most unquestionable Chinese production. Wat-a-Che, that was his name, told me that he was the only Chinese gentleman on Ararat, and I really be lieved him, for the Chinese generally area coarse, brutish, ignorant looking lot, certainly having few pretensions to the adjective gentle, and very different from my little friend Wat-a-Che, with his delicate physiognomy and semi-European attire.' The new interpreter is a character I have never seen before. He is a Chinese swell -a most undeniable dandy. When I first saw him sitting in the cour...
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13, 1860. THE KIANDRA DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 June 1860
WEDNESDAY, JUXNE 13, 1860. THE KIANDRA DCIOINGS. TnUsB Diggings are -at present the great topic of interest, not only in New South Wales, but throughout 'the whole Australian colonies. There has for some considerable time back been a great dullness in 'business in -Sydney, arising very much, we are inclined to -think, from the. gradual full of value and prices from the Hal cyon days of the great gold-finding,, when everything rose to a fictitious value. Properties parchased in those days -represent-no longer the. same value. Houses built then can no longer find tenants -alile to pay the -enormous rents; then freely asked and freely given; and wuges then so high can no longer be got, although they are tried to be -kept up by trades unions' and shortening of thehours-of labor. In these circumstances along with other causes, everyone in Sydney engaged in business feels the pressure, *an d there seems to be no prospect of any relief, in their opinion, except from the Kiandra Dig gings i...

CHARLES LisAB in one of his amusing essays, dated from a sick-bed, when, as he expresses it, left on the dreary swamps of convalescence, apologises for lack of ideas with the quotation- "in articulo mortus."

It is in the Electoral District of Shoalhaven. Though upwards of fifty miles from that river. Travellers ac quainted with the South Coast will know our locality best by being told that is near the Pigeon House Mountain. The district is small, though picturesque the land being elevated and undulating, clothed with timber, magnificent to the observer, yet imposing an immense amount of toil to the agriculturist. But the land being moderately good, and free from floods, it has after a slum ber of twenty years, at last attracted attention. The population of all ages amounts to some thing less than 1000 souls. Dairying is the principal pursuit: We have a chapel used by the WVesleyans and Presbyterians; the Episco palians hold iegular services in the school house of their denomination, until the'pretty little churc...
