SYDNEY. fFrom the Correspondent of the Argus.) Otli February, lftf G. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 19 February 1856

SYDNEY. fFrom the Correspondent of the Argus.) Otli February, lftf G. It has been well said that the battle of ail elec tion is generally fought in the revision courts. It is in these courts that the great struggle for the representation of the city is now going on. The results of this contest, as far as they can yet be judged of, arc favorable to'the Coalition. The enfranchisement of clerks and "other employes in receipt of above X'100 per annum as a salary, has been to a great extent defeated. According to the i letter of the law the parties who are thus qualified are to be registered, not as thoy ought to be, and as was really intended—for the places where their salaries are earned, but for their places of residence, i The effect of this decision, which there can lie little doubt is technically correct, although constitution ally wrong, is to disfranchise a number of clerks and others, who would, as a class, have supported Plunkett and opposed Cowper. The same result will attewd ...

EUROPEAN NEWS. ireland. Tipi'erary ih.- 1855. Mr. Serjeant Howley, in the couise of l»is charge to the Clonmel Quarter Sessions Grand Jury, in October last, thus referred to the present state of Tipperary:— "I am liappy to say, as regards the offences oc curring in this country, tiiat I may pronounce it i in a very satisfactory state. Various causes have Contributed to bring about this change, but to my mind fjiere is a very important cause operating to promote tranquillity, and tluit is the increased pros perity of the people. There was in this county as well as hit gtliers great distress, and I am quite sure that a large proportion of the crime for which this county obtained an unhappy celebrity grew out of ' the food question'—-the ' struggle on the part of poverty to possess itself of some description of pyooerty to relieve its wants. The food ques tion, fdo belioye^ was at the basis of those agrarian outrages which once d istin<>uiqhed the county of Tinuerarv. but...

MELBOURNE. ( FROM OUtt OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February lGtli, 1850. Jt cannot be forgotten that ill the transition from irresponsible to responsible government, as it tvas ! accomplished under the legal interpretations of the law officers of the Crown, and the pensions of cer t,'iin officers adroitly secured—at least for the mo ment—the acting Solicitor General was by a mar vellous coincidence of untoward accidents absent from the meetings of the Executive Council when those important decisions were arrived at. The Solicitor-General lost nothing by the strict atten tion which he paid to the immediate duties of his office, through which he was unable to attend the " Cabinet Councils." His colleagues took care of his interests. Mr. Croke was put upon the pension list,and Mr. Molesworth nominated to succeed him. All the world looked upon this movement as a most creditable manifestation of a suitable reward for extraordinary industry. It is not always that meritorious exertions, retiring m...

THE BEHSI60 ADVERTISER. PROGRESSION, OCR RIGHTS, AND OUR RESOURCES. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1B5G. LOCAL IMPROVEMENTS. We suggested to our Municipal Council to ini tiate an agitation to obtain some portion of the sum voted by the Legislative Council for the con struction of roads and bridges under the direction of tho Central Road Board, which in fact amounts to its expenditure at the discretion of Mr, Francis Murphy, the Chairman of that Board. For a long time we could not bring ourselves to believe that so loose and so irresponsible a system of voting tho public money could be adopted by any legislature, in which could be found the slightest recognition of the representative principle,—that a gross sum of money, in this ease amounting to a quarter of a million sterling, should be placed at the disposal of a Board, to be expended at their will and pleasure. That such is the fact, extraordinary though it be, we believe is not to be doubted. It has been stated publicly, and lias not bee...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 19 February 1856

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (from OUR MINING IUU'ORTEIt.) The late rains have induced many to return to Myers Flat, both from Epsom ami from Friars Creek, Castleniaine, &c.; indeed, tlie population of this district is largely on the increase. In Sail ors Gully, Pegleg, and Myers Flat, many new puddling machines are being built, and in many instances those now holding one machine are erec ting another in proximity to it. The quartz-workers in Sailors Gully give but an unfavorable account of their late workings. Some have run out the paying quartz, others have been damaged by tlie 'water which has got into their claims. A very excellent crushing and amalgamating machine is now at work in this place, the property of Messrs. M'Nair, Randolph and Co., who have met with such success in the quartz reef just by. Here, as in many other places, the richest claims adjoin the non-paying ones. I am told that Messrs. M'Nair and Co.'s machinery will crush one ton of quartz per hour. It is on the ...
