TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 January 1856

TASMANIA. Miss Catherine Hayes and Mr. Justice Therry had arrived in llobart Town. The Courier says, in referenco to Miss Hayes, "We believe Miss Catherine Hayes—and we regret to announce a fact so demonstrative of the opinion of her friends, that sufficient encouragement will not be given to allow of a more prolonged stay in this city—ouly proposes at present to give one concert. We hope, however, that her reception will be such as to warrant a change of determination, for although the welcome which has been accorded to her has not been so strongly marked, or so enthusiastic as in the various parts of the world she has visited, we can assure her that her unrivalled talents and her virtues have commanded the admiration and cstcein of all the residents of Tasmania. The in habitants may have been less boisterous in their expressions pf good-will towards "the ' Swan of Evin,' but their, .hearts are sound to the core, and Miss Hayes will experience, we promise her,'upon her first public...

AXEDALE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 January 1856

AXEDALE RACES. Yesterday and the day before the neighborhood of Axedale had an unusual treat, by the initiation of the sport of racing in that locality. Many proceeded from Sandhurst to witness the running, and several matches went off with spirit; some of them being well contested. It is an old saying " that every beginning is weak," and there is nothing at Axedale to prevent its epplication to racing. It would not he fair to criticise a first performance. It is sufficient that it made a holiday for all, and as the weather was most propitious, we have reason to believe that the company assembled enjoyed it. The result of the first day's sports were a race for the Publicans' Purse, with a sweepstakes of three sovereigns added. The hores were—Easy John and Bixllaarat., the property of Mr. Boyle, and Warlock, the property of Mr. Ross. Bnllaarat, after some difficulty in making the de cision, was declared to be the winner. The next was for the Axedale Town Plate, which was -won by Cree...

THE BENDIGO ADVERTISER. PROGRESSION! OUR RIGHTS, AND ODR RESOURCES. SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 185G. DOMICILED FOREIGNERS. It lias been the policy of all new communities, and in an especial degree of new colonies, to invite the settlement of strangers among them. The early Romans, who, if we are to credit the records of history, consisted for the most part of outlaws, offered an asylum to fugitives not mo.ie elevated in the scale of morality than themselves; and when, through a dearth of women, they feared .they might not leave a posterity to give permanency to tho state they were in progress of forming, they made no scruple of effecting the national rape of the Sabine women. This was no doubt a beginning not very prospect ive of future greatness ; nevertheless, the Romans arrived ata height of human greatness unexampled in the history of nations. The American people, as soon as they achieved their independence, adop ted a more enlightened system to encourage emi gration to their shores,...

COURT OF PETTY SESSIONS. Thursday, 24th January. (Before the Stipendiary Magistrate.) Violent Assault.—Joseph Miller, charged- witlj- as saulting two Chiuamen, pleaded guilty, and waa sen tenced to one months' imprisonment. It appeared that the defendant had been seen by Mr. Stmidish, the Chi nese protccior, and Mr. Clissold, who was with him at the time, assaulting three Chiuese, one of whom he es pecially and brutally ill treated. James Dunn was charged with' a similar offence by Thomas Lowe. It appeared that the complainant had been drinking at various- places, and lastly went to the defendant's tent, where he went to bed, but had not been there long when he was dragged outside the tent, and so severely beaten with a gun that two of. his ribs and the gun-stock were broken. The reason of the castigation was asserted to be that he had taken improper liberties with one of the defendant's daughters—a girl of 13 years of uge. £8 10s. which the complainant had on his person on entering...

'COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. SANDHURST GOLD MARKET. Advertiser Office, .Friday Evening. Gold is quoted'at Us. Od. per oz. Mr.;Bannoriimn, of the Bank Gold Office, View Point, reports :— As anticipated in our Inst report, there has been a brisk demand during the past week in Melbourne for gold dust for shipment to Knghuid, and at one time as high as 70s. Od. per ounce was paid 1>j parties desirous of making remittances in thatslilipe. The demand lias since nbntcd, mid tliD market is now dull at 75s. Here the market remains steady at the highest bank price, 74s. Od., with no syinptons of alteration. An average quantity of dust has been offered by the diggers for sale during the week ; and as there is now abundant water for washing and puddling purposes, •without the over-supply which, for a few weeks past, has prevented the working of many of the gullies, it is pro bable that the escort will take down an increased quan tity next week.

QUARTZ MINERS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 January 1856

QUARTZ MINERS' ASSOCIATION. A meeting of the members ofthis association was held at the Bendigo Hotel on Thursday evening last, to provide for the ensuing election of members to serve in the Local Court. Mr. Gibbs was voted to the chair, and com menced the business by pointing out the evils of the system of election hitherto practised, by which the names of some of the candidates were never brought before the public. Mr. Pollard having addressed the meeting on the same subject, proposed " That they proceed to nominate as many as they please, and afterwards ballot for nine." Mr. Bradshaw having seconded, and the meeting agreed to this course, the following gentlemen were nominated :—Messrs. 'O'Conor, Ballerstedt, Clis sold, Ilussler, C. J.

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 23rd, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 January 1856

MELBOURNE. (from our own correspondent.) January 23rd, 1850. Mr. Grant true to the professions he made to his constituents, to promote their especial inte rests, and to relieve them from the burthens, which fall upon them as a class, proposes to bring under the consideration of the house, the policy of re pealing the dutj- on gold. There can be no doubt tlmt this duty is oppressive upon the miners, par ticularly in these times when fortunate finds of gold are " few and far hetween." The produce of this duty, which is facile and comparatively inexpensive in its collection, forms an important item of the national revenue, and for these two reasons, it is but natural to expect, that the Go vernment will hold to it with tenacity. An in fluential body of the mercantile class are also favorable to its retention, because they know full well, the vacuum created by its withdrawal must be filled up from other sources. The people, extern to the goldtields, moreover have no direct interest in i...

CRESWICK. (From a Correspondent of the Herald.) January 21st. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 January 1856

CRESWICK. (From a Correspondent of the Herald.) January 21st. Mining prospects at Ureflwick seem to he improv ing ; in each direction you meet with parties, wlio sfiy they are doing well. At Union Hill some are washing seven and eight penhyweights to the tub, with plenty of water for washing, and a couple of feet depth of stuff. Some holes down on Slaugh ter-yard Hill are doing well, also on Island Hill, opposite Clark's Point. A few new gullies, running from beside Spriiighill towards the Back Creek, are now opening ; at present appearances are promis ing, and the gold found is course—almost nuggetty. Towards Mopoke the population and yield of gold is increasing; the side of Cahhage iiill, from op posite Farmer's Hotel, past Jones's store, is occu pied by a number of tunnels. I was kindly per mitted by a few of the parties at work there to inspect their drives. It appears a system which might lie adopted with advantage more frequently than it is. The drives in some cases now exceed...

THE CENSUS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 January 1856

THE CENSUS. The census of 1854 which from the difficulty of procuring accurate returns must be defective particularly in a country, where the population is so scattered, and many places out of the reach of an ordinary collector of such statistics, and wo have no local organisation, through whose agency reliable information can be procured " . * Notwithstanding the skilful arrangements made for its collection, and the good faith in which they were carried into eiFcct, all of which are highly creditable to the department under whoso superintendence it was prosecuted, it cannot bo regarded other than an approximation to the teal' state of the population either with regard to the enumeration or the classification of its component parts. As such, however, it is highly valuable and instructive, and forms a very important chap ter in the statistics of the country. \Ve extract the following tables from the Argus, because they have bqpn partially abridged by that paper in a manner which prec...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 January 1856

MINING INTELLIGENCE; (riiO.11 OUIl MINING REPORTER.) The election of to day is the principal topic amongst the miners of all classes, ami from what we hear,- we may expect a large muster this after noon. Several meetings have been held on the subject, the various associations taking great pains in tlie selection of men, and a new feature, but one forcibly pourtraying the interest taken by the diggers themselyes, is a meeting held at the Junc tion Hotel, Myers' Flat, on Wednesday last, which was addressed by Messrs. JDeighton, Jones, and Brown, when those present pledged'themselves to use their 'best exertions in procuring lit and proper members for the ensuing session of the Local Court. Considerable canvassing was going on yesterday, aud it is therefore pretty certain that there will be a sharp contest, unless the first nine are again chosen as on the last occasion. At Kpsom matters remain in statu quo, as far as the private property is concerned. Several holes at the new rush ave ...

THE LOCAL COURT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 January 1856

THE LOCAL COURT ELECTION. The election for members to serve in the Local Court will take place this day. It will appear from a communication made to a deputation from I the electors, that Messrs. Fanton and Mollison, Resident and Assistant Wardens, have acceded to I the request made to them to afford greater facilities for holding the election than existed at the first j general election. The electors, we are happy to state, evince a commendable interest in the event; and as they now have had experience of the duties to be performed, and have ample opportunities of selection, we make no doubt, they will place the right men in the right places. The choice lies with themselves, and they will have no one but themselves to blame,if they do not choose good men. Party feeling and prejudice must be dis carded, and the selection made solely upon the efficiency of the respective candidates. If honest and intelligent men are elected the mining com munity will soon discover that it is their in...

THE OVENS. (From the Advertiser.) The G.it\—We are still unable to give the re sult of the rush to this flat. The holes are now 110 feet in depth, hut no bottom has yet been touched. The deep claims, however, are now coming upon the water, and ns the bottom has hitherto been found to dip very much, it is pro liable that the bulk of the water would he found lower down, and that the present shafts would not be much inconvenienced by water. Messrs. Mac kay, Miller, and Co., have offered a reward of £5 to the first party who shall succeed in finding' the lead, and we hope other storekeepers will follow this praiseworthy example. The difficulties of sinking at the Gap are so great that if the first hole should prove a sliicer, the place will never get a fair trial, unless the exergiea of the diggers are stimulated by a reward. Large numbers have left the original workings at the Gap, pending the bottoming of the holes, and have commenced operations lower down the flat. Woolshkd.—The rush...

BAIiLAARAT. (From the Star.) Though tliere is still a goodly number, of tents from the township boundary along the Main-road, on Bakery and Specimen Hills, &e., yet it is ob servable that there is a dispersive movement among our miners. On Magpie this shifting i3 more to be seen than elsewhere; the minors who did not find profitable employment on Frenchmans, moved first to Iliscock's Gully, then to.the so-called Chalk Hills, a little beyond, and to the westward of Bu ninyong. There is another place, Ilavd Ilill, in the same neighborhood, whicli is just nbw com manding much interest; the sinking there is about 00 feet, mostly dry, save m one or t,\ o cmnii. where a fow sets of slabs are necessary for security's sake. We have heard on good authority that the yields from Hard llill are rich, its much as 10 ozs. having more than once been taken from a dishful; of course all the stuft'.js. not so good as this, but it is occasionally hit 011, and the general average is from four t...
