THE BBSJBIBO ADVERTISER, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 185G. THE FLOOD.—WHERE IS THE GOVERN MKNT. We regret to learn that the miners have suffered materially from the late flood. Dams constructed with great care and at a great expense, have been Bwept away, arresting, for the time, the operations of our enterprising and industrious miners. Wash ing stuff collected with great labor, has been m many cases, washed away by tho flood, or covered over by the worthless debris in its neighborhood, and all this has happened, because the Govern ment, through their well paid officials, have ne glected to provide against such a contingency, by taking care that the water courses should be clear, and unimpeded, to afford a free passage for such superfluous water, as it was their duty to foresee, would arise from such heavy falls of rain. Is it the only duty of Government to collect the taxes, and to expend them, in the payment of salaries to men who do nothing in return for the benefit of tho people. It ...

M'lVOlt. \ FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Iieathcote, 9th February. Digging operations Imve been retarded during the Inst week, by the heavy and continued rains, indeed, the weather here for some time past has been much more likeAvinter than summer,but'.'it is an ill wind that: blows nobody good," and the diggings will not. suffer much from the want of water in the back gullies this, season. "Without having any important rushes to report, or any heavy finds to speak of, I feel fully justified in stating, that the diggers of M'lvov are doing ex tremely well upon the whole, quite as well as on any larger gold-fteld, 'and better than on many.

MOUNT BLACKWOOD. A private correspondent, writing from Golden Point on the 4th instant, describes the gold-field to be all but deserted.

Stores are disap &nbsp; pearing in every direction."
MINING INTELLIGENCE. FIERY CREEK. (FROM THE AGE CORRESPONDENT.) 5th Feb., 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 12 February 1856
MINING INTELLIGENCE. FIERY CREEK. (FROM THE AGE CORRESPONDENTS&gt;) 5th Feb.,1856. &nbsp; This gold-field is progressing very well. The main lead, sometimes called the Black Lead,still yields as rich as ever. Four or five first-rate pay- ing holes were bottomed every day last week. A great many fine nuggets are exhibiting in all parts of the diggings. I saw one weighing 28 ozs. on Friday. The richness of this lead is attracting a great many from the neighboring gold-fields. This second rush, although not so large as the first will be one of more permanence and importance. A new lead has been struck at the head of Sawpit Gully, and some very rich finds are reported. The sinking is about 40 feet. Waterloo Flat is nearly deserted, but it is gene- rally expected that something rich in that quarter will yet be discovered. The late rains set a good number of puddling machines in operation, and the owners generally acknowledge good returns. Thers is a good opening here for ...
