-r A SCENE IN THE UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Ia the House of Representatives, lately, an amusing but disgraceful scene occured between two members-Messrs Stanly and Giddings. The former having charged the latter with uttering a falsehood, the follow- ing conversation occured : Mr Stanly-It is usual for one who has no legard for the decencies of life to relieve him* I sell from responsibility by pronouncing state- ments false, and it is characteristic of the man who sneaked a' ay (rom this House and took his pay for work wt ich he did not do. Mr Giddings-When the gentleman descends to low vulgarity I cannot follow him. I pro- test against Doughfaces prompting the gentle* man from South Carolina. Mr Stanly - It is the business of a scavenger to have anything to do with him, and I will have to wash my hands after hand- ling him ; but the thing has to be done, as he bas thrust himself on us a kind of censor- It is a small business for me, and I don't know how 1 can descend ...

LETTERS FROM MELBOURNE. LETTER VII. Melbourne, Nov. 22, 1852. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 2 December 1852
LETTERS FROM MELBOURNE. LETTER Vii. Melbourne, Nor. 22, 1852. There baa been of late a considerable check at the mines. The old and highly auriferous portions of the diggings so far as I known have been " well wrought out," i and -it Beems to be generally considered that the days of great prizes and sudden fortunes bas pretty well gone by both at Mount Alexander and Bendigo, The dig. ging population there have been for some j time extremely unsettled, and go off in thousands to any place which is rumored to be encouraging. On the other hand their splendid success at the old diggings makes them less easily satisfied, and they get im- patient if the new place does not afford some pockets immediately.
