CASTIjEMAINB. (From the Mom I Alexander Mail,) THE RUSH ON THE CAMP. GREAT MEETING OF DIGGERS. On Saturday last, agreeably to the announce ment made on the previous Monday, a public, meeting of diggers was held at the Camp, for the purpose of receiving the correspondence between the Government, Captain Bull, and the diggers' committee, relative to the question of throwing open the Camp ground to mining operations. At half-past two about 120O men had assembled in front of tho Kesident War den's office. There was not the least confusion, and we saw but very few of them carrying their working implements, which fact sufficiently proved that the mass of the diggers did not contemplate any active demonstration against the mandates of the law. Captain Bull, who was attended by Lieu tenant . Smith and other officers, read the cor respondence which appeared in the ' Bendigo Advertiser' of Tuesday last, and in which the Government declared the Gamp to be reserved for public purposes, and proh...

commercial intelligence.. SANDHUBST GOLD CIHCOLAR. ' Advertiser Office, Friday Eveninc. Gold remains firm at X'S lGs. Mr. Bannerman of the Bant Gold Office, View Point, reports. "We quote gold dust it 70s. por ounce. Tbe market, however, is in so unsettled a state that this cannot be reckoned as the price which may be current to-morrow*. The Escort took down au unusually large quantity last week. This is not owing to a sudden increase of the yield, but to n large parcel being despatched by one of tbe large buying establishments, which has uot been re mitting to town for some weeks. Although fair parcels have been offering during the week, we do not think, from tbe information we are able to gather, that the pro duction has yet reached its usunl quantity. The store keepers in the out gullies find a decided diminution in ibeir purchases, but increased price will doubtless cause xossy small quantities which have been kept back to be now sold.
