THE NEW SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 16 February 1856

the new secretary of state for THE COLONIES. In anticipation of the possible revival of the cry nliout "aristocratic monopoly," and "family cliques," it may be stated that, though on one point appcarauces may he against him, Mr. Labouehere lias not become and long been an in fluential public man by virtue of lineage or con nexion. It in tvuq that, a year or two ago, as wo perceive, ho incurred Whatever blame is attachable I to marrying a Bister of Lord Carlisle and ot the Duchess of Sutherland; hut, in mitigation, he I may, we believe, plead that he himself had nothing offensively "aristocratic" in his derivation and I claims. His lineage is Himilar to that of Sir Sa muel Romilly, being derived from one of the French families expelled from their own'countiy by the revocation of tlio lidict of Nantes. Mr, ll-vboupliere's father, in truth, was not even an Imi giishivian by bi^th,; though, ultimately becoming otie of our merchant princes. In the iast volume, just issued, of Thioi-s* "'...

THE BENDIGO ADVERTISER. rftoaitEssioN, onit rights, and ouit kesouhces. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1BSG. OFFICIALISM. The injuries caused by the late inundation, though considerable, liaVe not proved as extensive as was at first believed. The diggers also have courageously set to work to repair their losses, and things already assume a more settled state. The industrial operations of the population progress in their usual course, and business begins to resume its wonted activity. Onr Mining Report shows the state of things accurately. It appears that the great difficulty to be encountered, is a systematised co-operation, which can never be accomplished by the miners themselves, without an authoritative superintend ence' and control. What is everybody's business, practically becomes nobody's, and things are left to take care ot themselves. This is not the condi tion of socicty to which we wish to see matters re duced upon these Gold-fields. We have advanced beyond that- phase of anarchy....

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 16 February 1856

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) Some fresh sinking has lately taken place at the Eighth White Hill, or as it is better known by some Butcher's Hill, so called on account of a slaughter yard having been there some years ago, The rush is now nearly over, many having left, but still a good deal of work is going on in the locality. The sinking is hard, and the washing dirt similar to that of the other White Hills. All along the back of this line of hills, numerous com- fortable residences of diggers are to be seen, in sequestered nooks. Owing to the season, water is plentiful, and the young brush considerably enhances the scene. Surfacing has to a great ex- tent been carried on, on all these hills, and at the Seventh large heaps are now thrown up for pud- dling machines. Some excellent dams are also both in present use and being constructed in the neighborhood. The diggings between here and Epsom now nearly join. At Epsom considerable alteration has taken place during t...
