TWO MEN DROWNED — On Tuesday night two men, who were camping with their teams at one   of the Five Mile Water Holes, mistook their way when on their return from Mr. Stammers, where, it appears, they had partaken rather freely of li-   quor and falling into a deep pond of water, were drowned. The first notice of the catastrophe was taken in consequence of their hats being seen on the surface of the water the following morning. Their names and other particulars have not yet   transpired.                   RUMOURED APPOINTMENT. — We have heard it rumoured in likely quarters that the Reverend W.   B. Clarke will be appointed resident episcopalian   minister at Ophir. Considering the Reverend   gentleman's qualifications, no more suitable field   could certainly have been chosen for ...

TURON DIGGINGS. July 6th, 1851. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 9 July 1851

' TURON'. DIGGINGS. July 6th, 1851. On; Friday last the Commissioner commenced issuing licenses, and by Saturday evening had issued upwards of 300 certificates. Some who had riot the means of paying, were ordered to strike work'immediately. ' Sevpral companies are doing exceedingly well. Mr. William Kable and party got about 7£ ounces of gold on Wednesday last, and on Thursday 3£ ounces. There are many others equally lucky. The largest piece I have yet heard of is about the size of ahorse bean. Since we arrived here our own party have been making about 16s. a day, so that wo have no grounds of dissatisfaction. To-day (Sunday) wo have had several slight showers of rain, which, from the scarcity of water, are much required, and there is every appearance of a further supply. Should anything of import ance occur, I will communicate it to yon by the first opportunity. Since the above, we learn from Mr. Arthur's overseer that the water holes in the higher portion of the Creek are graduall...

THE REVEREND MR. WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 9 July 1851

THE REVEREND MR. WEST. Mr. West arrived at Launcestoa by the steamer Shamrock, having gained the ad miration and gratitude of every well-wisher of these colonies by his earnest and elo quent advocacy of their interests. The idea of appealing to the other colonies emanated from Mr. West. The resolution adopte.l by the Launceston meeting, held on the 9 th August last, with the view of obtaining their co- operation to ensure the discontin uance of transportation to this island, was, we believe, penned by himself. The result is before us, in the great fact styled the Australasian League. The means taken by Mr. West to. accomplish this fact have been as judicious as the idea was felicitous. With the zeal of a missionary, he has la boured with untiring energy, never losing sight for one moment of the great object before him. Impassioned, as many of his speeches were, he was never led by the excitement of the moment to deliver any observations likely to damage the cause by creating enemies...

Hotal Intelligence. ? More Ltjokt than Wish.— As Mr. Smith, the Veterinary Surgeon of 'this town, was returning horoeward* a few days ago byway tf the Sydney road, he espied an old coat on the ground, which he picked up and threw carelessly into his gig.- He had not. proceeded much farther before he was accosted with an obstreperous ' hoi ! holloa! did ye pick ., up ere a rag of an old coat on the road.' Mr. S., like an honest man, immediately answered in the affirmative, and forthwith tossed his rag to him. In breathless haste, the querist tore it open, and inserting his hand in the side-pocket took out a bag containing about £100 worth of gold. It appears tho man had been at Ophir, whence he was returning to Sydney with a team, and had thrown the coat with its contents carelessly on the dray, front which it had fallen. Mr. Smith, although unaware of the value of the prize, has felt quite happy ever since. at having been the means of restoring the nronertv to its lawful owner. MAas...

The Diggings. Ophir, 4th July, 1851. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 9 July 1851

j ? ? From our own Correspondents,.' Ophir, 4th July, 1851. Since my last communication' to you of the 2nd instant, the neighbourhood of the Ophir 'Diggings has assumed a vory different aspect to what it did a week prior to that time. A great accession of fresh adventurers has taken place from different parts of the country, and a considerable number of nld faces mav be seen who have returned from the Turon, being quite satisfied after partially trying that locality, that the Ophir mines are decidedly the best. Many of these persons informed me that it is more than probable that most of the Turonites will be at this place within a week. In my last I mentioned the circumstance of two men procuring 9£ ounces of gold. in one day. The same two persons had the good fortune to pick up 19# ounces on the :day following, part of which consisted of a most chaste and elegant lump ?weighing 13 ounces, and which is now in the pos-( session of Mr. Meyer, who would willingly shewit to any person w...

HAVILAH DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 9 July 1851

HAYILAH DIGGINGS. --; Things are progressing at Havilah. Numbers are arriving daily, so that there ib a prospect that this sequestered spot will soon be alive with an in dustrious population. There are already some thirty camps formed, which contain, I should sup ?nnse .from 130 to 150 souls. The gold which is procured is still of the same description as that from tho Turon and Foster's Dig'-in-»s. Several parties have realised as much as half an ounce per man per day, but this is much more than tho average earnings. I moke this statement to show that gold exists hero in amply sufficient quantity to remunerate the labourer. There can be no doubt but that good wages can be earned with moderate industry. Here, as at the Turon, the precious metal seems to be evenly distributed through the soil, though particular spots are found to be richer than other?. As yet, no lumps of any size have bee n found. Whenever such a circumstance occurs, I will ac quaint you with it. It would be well to ...

The imports have been almost entirely to London, while at Liverpool thev have been entirely insignificant. We are glad,, however, to be able to state that we have a good prospect of leceiving some quantity during the present year.

(Snglfef) Ttfttos. QUEEN VICTORIA OPENING PAR LIAMENT. ('From the Times Feb. 5th. J Among the many political pageants of this world there is not one more affecting than that which we annually witness when Queen Victoria opens her Parliament. The beauty, the stillness, and the brevity of the spectacle make it more like a preternatural vision of enthroned Majesty and national homage than an act of this every day world. Yet the charm of the occasion consists in the vastness of the disparity between the fact and the show, and in the real immen sity of that which is thus' slightly and mo destly expressed to the eye. It is the very absence of pomp and grimace that enables the reflective spectator to follow his own thoughts quietly to the greatnes3 of the dominion visibly represented .before him ; a seventh of the human race gathered to that throne, the great cause of Constitutional Government committed to its keeping, to gether with freedom of the person, of trade of religion, and of nati...

Country Intelligence. THE LACHLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 9 July 1851

Country Intelligence. THE LACHLAN. The rains have been frequent but very light on the Lachlan, but much more will be required to do any permanent good. There is barely sufficient grass to keep cattle and horses alive and on their feet, but they are very weak. Where there is no fodder, horses are incapable of work ; and if a beast run forty or fifty yards, it falls exhausted on the earth, from sheer weakness. With the most favor- able seasons, a considerable time must elapse before much fat beef can be procured from the river. One reason, in addition to the principal one, is, that the best of the aged cattle have died off, and the young cattle will require age to arrive at their growth before they commence fattening. Sheep do pretty well upon the present feed. Dairy operations have been suspended for a long time past. There has been little or nothing done in that way for the last eighteen months. There are many places closed in consequence, their owners having taken advantage of the ...
