To the Editor of the Ovens and Murray Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

To the Editor of the Ovens and Murray Advertiser. Sin,-In a youthful colony, with a bank rupt Government, a Governor autocratic and vacillating, an adventurous, unsettled, and disturbed population, and with the mother country engaged in an expensive and if any serious reverse occurred at Se bastopol-in a desperate war, it behoves every reasonable man in the community to endeavour, by every constitutional means to avert impending calamities. It is a patent fact, that although respectable men held themselves aloof from the recent in surrectionary movements, they did so not because they were satisfied with the pro ceedings of the Government, but because they "would not, till the last extremity, countenance an appeal to arm9. If the gangrene of disaffection reaches a vital part all is lost. From the general well-being of the peo ple in this locality; from the scattered na ture of the ' diggins,' and the consequent absence of all political excitement, the Ovens district has never made an...

Local and Domestic. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

Local and Domestic. VIOLENT HAIL STORM.-On Saturday last this neighbourhood was visited by a very severe hail storm which took every one by surprise. The day had been unusually sultry, and thirsty townsmen had exhausted every available method of quenching the devouring appetite, when as if by a special interposition of the pitying elements, sherry cobbler^ and cool drinks of every description were provided out of hand. It was singular to notice the avidity with which the precious fragments of ice were collected and their speedy introduction to sherry and sugar. The inhabitants of Beechworth became, on the instant, a sucking community, and the enormous quantity of straw that was u?ed on the occasion threatened to have a de cided effect on the market. A small por tion of the hail was preserved until the following day. Not the least singular feature in this occurrence was the marked partiality of the storm, which appeared to be confined to Beechworth and the imme diate vicinity. We hav...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Ovens and Murray Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

To the Editor of the Ovens ancl Murray Advertiser. SIR,-Did you ever travel 200 miles in a mail cart ? If so, you will readily give insertion to the following history of my sufferings as a mail passenger from Mel bourne. It is a pleasing and current fic tion that the number of passengers by the mail cart is limited to four victims, where as the ' stern reality ' is, that the unhappy wretch who takes his seat in this ' infernal machine' is liable to be mated with seven or eight individuals equally miserable as himself. I can only compare the crowd ing and suffocation experienced by a mail (or female) passenger to the black hole at Calcutta, and of this I ought to be a tol erable judge having recently arrived from that part of the world. You are probably aware, Mr. Editor, that the digestive organs of Indians are about their weakest points. Now, Sir, when I assure you that for a period of five hours I had to sustain the weight of a sharp-boned woman witli innumerable bundles containin...

THE BEECHWORTH RACE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

TPIE BEECHWORTH RACE MEETING. The races are now over, and we are j happy to report that the meeting was very well attended by sporting men and spec tators. We have been informed that it is the best meeting that has been yet held in this part of the colony; and we are dis posed to think that this is the case. The handicaping was, of course, complained of in the first instauce ; but the result of the running, we are disposed to think, showed that the stewards were not quite so ignorant of racing matters as had been asserted. The entrance meetings were very well attended, and on the result of the handicaps being made public, ' blow ing ' was the order of the day. We think t due to the trainers of the horses to state that they have by no means disgraced themselves. Cunningham and Bentley, the trainers and riders of Muleyson and Moss Trooper deserve especial praise for the condition of their horses and the manner in which they rode them : in fact, the meeting was a truly sporting one, an...

THE "©fceng anii iWtirray SUrbcrtiser." " This is true liberty, when free-born men, having to advise the public, may speak free."-Milt, trans. Eury. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1855. HALF A LOAF BETTER THAN NO BREAD. WE stated in our last number that on a future occasion we would again allude to the subject of the representation of the Gold Fields. This has now be come of such importance that no time must be lost in coming to some definite conclusion, or at least, talcing the matter into our immediate consideration. It is probable that Dr. Owens will shortly pay the Ovens a visit to solicit our suffrages as a candi date to represent the diggings in the Legislative Council. At present (sorry we are to say it), only one member is allowed as representative of the whole of the Gold Fields in the colony. Dr. Owens, as our readers are aware, has already been elected by the people of Bendigo. It is probable that the same gentle man will be chosen by the miners of Balaarat and Forest Creek. Unde...

News from England. Queenscliff, February 8, 1855, [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

I News from England. QueensclifF, February 8, 1855, The ship Shalimar, from Liverpool, arrived within the Heads this evening. She brings eleven days later English news : The following is extracted from the Liverpool Times, of November 23rd ; - THE BATTLK OP INKEU-MANR. A Gazette Extraordinary, containing Lord Raglan's detailed account of the bat tle of Inker-mane will be read with feel ings of pride and awe. According to Lord Raglan's estimate, the Russians brought 60,000 men to the attack on the 5th November. The actual numbers op posed to this vast host was only 8000 British and 6000 French troops; yet, after a dreadful battle of eight hours dura tion, the Russians were defeated and driven back, with a loss of 5000 killed and 10,000 wounded and taken prisoners, making a total of 15,000 men killed, wounded, and taken prisoners. Thus the number of Russians killed, wounded and taken was greater by more than 1000 men than the whole number of British and French troops actually en gaged...

The.Duke of Cambridge was expected at Constantinople. It is said that the numerous deaths in the Duke's regiment at the battle of Inkermane, and the 'horrors of the whole scene, added to hia annoyance that more care had not been taken by Lord Raglan to strengthen his weak parts of their position, have so , affected bis Royal Highness's mind that he has be...

THE LIBERTY OP THE PRESS.-The trial of Mr. Sechamp, editor of* the Balaarat Times, is another blow aimed at the liberty of the press, and ought to be taken up warmly by every newspaper I writer in the colony. I am astonished j that jury of intelligent men could have j found a verdict of guilty against Mr. Sac- i hamp upon such evidence; but I suppose they had just come to the conclusion without putting themselves to much trouble-that he was guilty, and returned their verdict accordingly. There is not a free man in this colony who has read over the evidence for the prosecution carefully, but must cry shame against the verdict given ; but what need they ? Govern ment will at all times find men who will willingly do their dirty work, and perhaps a Melbourne jury is as open to an engage ment of the sort as their neighbours. Mr. Sechamp, however, has obtained the vic tory. His condemation is better for the cause of liberty than an acquittal. Perse cution is the soul of truth ; and let th...

THE MAIL CONVEYANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

! THE MAIL CONVEYANCE. OUR attention lias on several oc casions been called to the dis graceful manner in which, pas sengers by mail conveyance from Melbourne are treated. We are astonished that this evil should I have been allowed to continue for so long a time, and that so excellent a field for speculation, as a regular passenger convey ance, should have been over looked by capitalists. It is notorious that the de scription of cart at present in use is incapable of accommodating, with comfort, more than three passengers in addition to the driver; but notwithstanding in several instances as many as eight passengers have been crowded into this vehicle, which is no larger than an ordinary dog cart, and is, moreover, loaded with heavy mail bags. When we consider the nature of the roads in this part of the country, and the amount of traf fic between Melbourne and the Ovens, we cannot but be sur prised that, if not for their profit, at least for their own credit, the proprietors of this...

THE TURON. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

THE TURON. The manly and straightforward conduct I of your correspondent has gained him the good Avill of a large portion of the inde pendent order of the digging population. He has proved himself a c pearl of great price;' in fact, the storekeepers could not | find out his value. A mercenary, sordid set, that never could appreciate his worth, some of them have been uncharitable enough to hint that the grapes were sour, and he only wished he might get them. J ^ o c? Others have had the audacity to say that his epigrams were piracies. This is very unkind; but the unkindest cut of all is throwing a doubt upon the honesty and veracity which dictated his last lucubra tion. Since your last publication we have been visited with several very heavy thun der-storms, which I fear will prevent the bed-claims from being worked for the next month. There has been a great rush to the table land at Wattle Flat this last week, and a great portion of the diggers appear very sanguine and well pleased ...

MONEY AND COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. Liverpool, Tuesday evening. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

MONKY AND COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. From the Northern Daily Times, November 22nd. Liverpool, Tuesday evening. There has been no improvement in the tone of business, nor does there appear much probability of a change for the bet ter until something decisive is known as to the movements of the army before Se bastopol. The business done on the stock ex change has been small, and prices have had a downward tendency. The absence of further news from the Crimea was ascribed as the ehief cause of the slackness of busi ness. The London market for English secu rities opened with an improved feeling, and consols advanced to 92, buyers;1 but a reaction took place before the closfc, and the improvement was lost, consols closing 91!}? to 91-2. There were a few transac tions after official hours, but there was no improvement in the quotations. The fol lowing were the day's prices :-Noon prices-consols, for account, 5)1;}; for money, 9l£ to 91{'. The following telegraphic report of the London stock...

THE HANGING ROCK. Hanging Rock, Jan. 20. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

THE HANGING ROCK. Hanging Rock, Jan. 20. In justification to those men who were working in the shaft in which the little girl Ashington fell into, they were seen to lash a slab and log to the framework at tached to the windlass, and had not this protection been removed by some mischie vous person, it is evident the child could not have fallen in. Notwithstanding that these men were free from blame, yet the mode of securing the safety of the shaft was very frail, and easily removed. The best method is to lay logs over the mouths of shafts, and fill up the vacancies between them with stones. If this were acted upon by all the diggers, the probability of accidents would be alto gether prevented. We have had a few showers of rain during the present week, but not sufficient materially to benefit those parts known as the dry diggings. Happy Valley and Spring Creek are languishing for want of water to wash with ; there are, however, a number of persons who get their living by cradling, and...
