AN INTERCEPTED. LETTER.

My Dear Punch—We have not much news np here this week in consequence of tlio Editor of the Bcnd'ujo A/tucrtisur having gone to a quartz rush. A monster meeting was held in Full Mall on Saturday by W. D. C. 1). E. Donovan, to.get the voice of the diggers as to whether they would sooner have two claims than one. The Press was represented by your humble servant. Two "runners" of the "I'izcr being engaged to prepare' the stump, a tolerable place was at my. service. But as there was nothing done, though a great deal said, I had but little to do. After passing a resolution proposed by Mr. Donovan, "That every quartz miner .have as many claims as he may think just," they broke up, not without giving three c...

The meeting connucuceil in Pali Mall, where Mr. Foley was culled to the clitiir, who rend dill'crent paragraphs of n lender that appeared in that morning's Advertiser, com menting on them as he went on.

PATRIOTISM AND PUBLIC SPEAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 19 September 1855

PATRIOTISM AND PUBLIC -SPEAKING.' Those gentlemen whose ambition prompts them to com«j prominently forward as public speakers, and to declaim with energy and pas sion on topics in which public interests are deeply concerned, have a splendid opportunity now afforded them of distinguishing themselves, and at the same time of rendering a benefit to the cause.of humanity and patriotism. The Patriotio Fund Committee have had .the ques tion of an appeal to the diggers by means of a public meeting'under their consideration, and they .have relinquished the idea. They have relinquished it for two reasons—because no gentleman would pledge himself to speak, and because they had no faith in tho diggers coming forward at a public meeting, to assist in the cause. Both reasons wo hold to be utterly groundless, and insulting toBendigo. Enough speakers cou'd bo easily found to come forward on such occasions, even without the fee that the Smart la vyer present" demanded. • As to the diggers, have the...

TRY BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 19 September 1855

THY BACK. ''Men," wrote Mr. John Foster, in onc^of tlie famous ' Three Letters' in which he " had the honor of defending" himself, " Men who understand what the diggers really want will bo of inestimable value to the Government." That satisfactory legislation for a now and im portant class is no very light or easily accom plished task, was not a discovery of Mr, Fos ter's; nor was he doomed to stand alone in his sentiments on the subject. The Commis sion of Inquiry, in recommending the institu tion of local boards or tribunals on the gold fields, observed that " their influence and local experience would bring to a bearing quostions that appear complex to those at a distanco." Thero are questions, however, which after all, our Local Court, it seems, with nil its influ ence and experience, can not " bring to a bearing," and which, notwithstanding its strenuous efforts, and the utmost stretch of its legislative capacities, it has left as "com plex'" and unsatisfactory as ever. No soon...

MELBOURNE. [From our Own Correspondent.] September 15, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 19 September 1855

MELBOURNE. TFrom our Own Correspondent.! September 15, 1855. The election for North Bourke lias been brought to a conclusion—the state of the poll, as far as has been yet ascertained being, for Embling, 593 ; Tennent, 448 ; M'Ewan, 214; Mooney, 14. Mr. Tennent had a majority over Embling at every polling-plaoe except Collinguood and Williamstown. The contest was conducted with the greatest animation, and everywhere with perfect good hnmor except in Collingwofid, where Mr. Tennent's supporters met with rather rough usage from the friends of Doctor Embling, who "rushed" his committee room, tore down the statement of the poll at Richmond, which showed a majority for Tennent, and pelted that gentleman with mud. These gentlemen boast much of their adherence to the prin ciples of purity of election, in abstaining from intemperate drinks, hut made up for this aet of self-denial, dictated probably by economy as much as anything else, by indulging in a course of intemperate conduct by no mea...

MOUNT ALEXANDER DIGGINGS. (From the Mail.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 19 September 1855

MOUNT ALEXANDER DIGGINGS. • (From tlio Sl/itil.) Am:i..uDK Flat.=—From White Ifor.se Oully, through the flat, down to the liigli road and the line of.tlie creek, mutters seem very much the same as they have recently been. Old chums, niul such ns obtain friendly direction' from their better knowledge of the ground, can mnniiga to pick up a living, but. it seems beyond question that the cream of this valley is gone—at iI for diggers ou the small scale. Audible growlings against the Chinese arc continual, especially from the older residents, and. hints are thrown out of an intention to expel thorn from this locality, and break up their camps. From Man chester Flat, on to Pennyweight Flat, water is too plenti ful and gold too scarce for the former residents; bill ill the higher part of this last-mentioned ground a small rush has taken place i'\ Dirty Dick's Gully, from whicli some parlies have taken from eighteen to twenty ounces per day. The sinking is about nine feet, partly through i...

Beyond question we arc eminent do-nothings, that is, taking us as a community. We evidently enjoy the Italian pleasure, t.he " dulce far | niente." Dreamy indolence, the mere sensa ; t.ion of living, is sufficient for us. But we far excel the Italian in our devotion to ease. Not at all cssontial to our phlegmatic listlessness are cool marble halls—crystal fountains, fringed with luxuriant verdure—an atmosphere redolent with the fragrance of beautiful flowers, or vibrating with fairy-like music—or the magic of soft, bright eyes. No, we doze away the hours in ...

MARYBOROUGH. (From the Correspondent of the M. A. Mail.) September 12th. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 19 September 1855

Maryborough. (From the Correspondent of the M. A. Mail.) September 19th. (1855) The District.— The great attraction is Fiery Creek. This gold-field now musters a population of from fifteen to twenty thousand. The diggers are still very unsettled, and it is impossible to say what particular locality will ultimately obtain. Many rumors of great finds are in circulation, but they are all of very doubtful credibility. My own opinion is, that although many are making first-rate wages, yet no very rich lead has yet been struck. The large escort this week shows that some of the many finds in this district are turning out well; but I am inclined to ascribe this augmentation rather to an increase of the general average, than to any particular locality. In spite of rushes to Fiery Creek and the Avoca, Moliagul still continues to hold its own, and both storekeepers and miners are very sanguine as to the permanency of this field. A great number of people have left the Alma, and Adelaide Lead is...
