LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 16 November 1855
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. A New Gold Field.—Within the last few days some fine specimens of gold, nuggets of no mean size, have been dis- covered in the neighbourhood of the Nicholson, by a party of three. Another party of ten are about to follow immedi- ately. A road is being formed thither from the Mitchell. [The accuracy of the &nbsp; above statement may be fully relied on, the parties furnishing us with it having no object in view, save that of dealing truth- fully with the public. Ed. G. L. G.].
THE GOLD FIELDS OF GIPPS LAND. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 16 November 1855
THE GOLD FIELDS OF GIPPS LAND. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. Sir,—Having lately met with some remarks in a Melbourne Journal tending to question or deny the existence of a working gold-field at Omeo ; and an unaccountable diffidence existing among the Gipps Land people, I avail myself of your paper as a medium to afford publicity to the fol- lowing facts:— About twelve months since, John Jones (who is well known in Gipps Land) took up a quantity of provisions on spec to the diggings, and while resting his bullocks for a week, he set in and ob- tained 4 oz. 8 dwts., one nugget of which weighed 1 oz. 12 dwts. On a second journey, with another man in company, he tried it again for a week, and procured 12 oz. 6 dwts. &nbsp; I myself, with four others, have been making 1 oz. per day, clear, for the last six months, and am now paying a man £1 per day to work in my place during my absence. The above (two instances of many) are facts, &nbsp; and may be relied on,...

itanb &lt;S5tmrbmn. Friday, 23jyZ November, 1855. IMPEDIMENTS TO THE PROGRESS OF GIPPS LAND. A' Comparison of the Census returns for the years 1851 and >1854,• discloses the fact, that, during that period the popula tion of. Gipps Land has not increased.;, , It: may ue,ixseful to enquire, .into the. causes which have combined to impede the natural progress of a settlement so young as this, and to render it an exception to the unexampled career of other parts ; of the ' Colony during those eventful years. On the one hand a climate unequalled in any part of Australia, combined>.with;feiv 'tility of the soil, offer great attractions.-to those emigrants who propose to employ themselves in agriculture, and of this class > the number ,is so great .that; if ;buti a frac tion of'them were induced to cast .their lot among us,.there need be no..complaint of the want of population. , ■"" Our timber now* devoted'.only..to the.use&lt; ..of a few scattered inhabitants, is...

CONSTITUTION MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 23 November 1855
CONSTITUTION MAKING. Constitutional law is no doubt very perfect in theory, and where an object is to be defeated, very orderly in practice; but if officials are interested it becomes a nose of wax, and may be twisted any way. The Tasmanian Act is strictly formal, and the South Australian may be, after re vision in the province. But the measures for Victoria and New South Wales are the most irregular of acts ever embodied in a Statute Book. They have been confirmed without being' enacted. As they left the respective legislatures of Sydney and Mel bourne they only continued during the passage across the ocean. When they reached Downing-street some imp changed them, cutting out a section .here,and in serting a provision . there. ■ '-Such' clumsy^ bungling was; never ^before t-seen,:; and'yet■ there is no court in the empire will venture - to question their validity, though - there interpretation, in consequen ce of alterations, may occasion dispute. Both Chambers being elective in Vic...
