CHINAMAN'S FLAT. 5th January, 1857. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 7 January 1857

CHINAMAN'S FLAT. 5th January, 1857. (From our own Correspondent.^ We have at last got over tne joiuucations of Christmas, and are now beginning to ] take to hard work again, like sober matter of-fact folks as we are. There are some parties doing well on some ground with sinking of about one hundred feet, as well as ou some shallow ground, which runs alongside, and through which there appears to be a lead of gold. Shepherding is car nied on to a great extent here, and, indeed, is as bad as it used to be on Ballarat about eighteen months ago ; it, at present,"inter feres very much with the working of this field. The Alma, which is distant from this about two miles, is progressing very I slowly ; there is a great deal of water, and j the miners of this district do not know how | to manage it; the consequence is that nearly all active operations are being car ried on by Ballarat men. A new rush has taken place to Mount Hope, a place about a hundred miles from this, on the Mount Borong r...

j CHTCNBSE ETAKGIIIZATION.-It wül be seen I from our advertising columns, that a public ] meeting will be held, this evening, in the \ Wesleyan School Room, Township, for the I purpose of forming -a Ballarat Branch of the j ! Society for Evangelizing the Chinese. The j movement has originated, we believe, with | the Geelong Chinese Evangelization Associ ation, which society has engaged a native agent, named Lo Sam Tuen, to labor here, and who will be present at the meeting to night. The object is au important one, and many of our readers who have been anxiously waiting for such a movement will gladly hail the commencement of it, which will take ] place to-night. j INQITEST.-On Thursday afternoon an in- I quest was held before Dr Clendinning, the | district coroner, at the Swan Hotel, Town ship, on the body of one Joseph Peacock, a ¡ bellman, then lying at the Ballarat Hospital.

BALLARAT GOLD CIRCULAR. Lydiard-street, 7th January, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 9 January 1857

, r BÁLLAEAT GOLD CIBCÜLAB... j " Lyäiard-ttreet, 7th January, 1867. j Messrs Rankin & Douglas report: We bare to report Wincreased activity in trade during the week, which may in a measure be attributed to the extremely high price that has been given. The escort this week is somewhat below the average, owing, no doubt, to the effects of Christmas holi days. The high price of gold has led Jim Crow, Daisy HUI, and other inferior gold to be " rushed'' into the market. The escort took down 17,011 ounces. Lj diard-slreet, 7th January, 1867. Mr Joseph Dixie reports : There ia little change to note in the gold market. Several large diggers' parcels hare been parchas eil at £3 19s. 6d, which may now bc quoted as the highest market price for the vi-ry best samples. Large quantities of gold from other fields arc being hawked about in every way that ingenuity can devise ; but, as far as the township buyers are concerned, with very little effect.

%>p atar. DAXX.Y ISST/B. FBIDAY, 9TH JANUARY, 1857. BALLARAT VERSUS BENDIGO. THE question as to whether Ballarat or Bendigo is the leading, or, as thc phrase runs, the "metropolitan" gold field of the colony, and as a conse quence of the world, has long been a subject of dispute between the resi dents and journals of the two districts. That this gold-field has lately, in escort returns, far outstripped her rival, has been for some time ad mitted by all parties, but it has been maintained by our opponents that the aggregate produce of Bendigo, 6ince the discovery of gold, 6tiU consi- ? derably exceeds our own. We are now enabled, to a certain extent, to refute this statement, and to claim for Ballarat the proud distinction of being the greatest gold-field in the world. The escort returns from Bendigo, which we give below, for some unexplained rea son, do not include those for 1852. Deducting the Ballarat, returns for that and the previous year, leaves for Bal larat a total return ...
