THE DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 19 September 1855
THE DIGGINGS. The population at Myers' Flat still in- creases. The lead appears to be heading for Bullock Creek. The sinking in many places is pretty deep, being from 26 to 40 feet. Many of the claims are what are called three-deckers, gold being found on two bottoms before the pipeclay is reached. Some of the strata are extremely hard, but although the ground is patchy, the deposits at the bottom of many of the holes richly reward the miner for his trouble. We are sorry to learn that there are no police here, and even when an application is made at the police station at Eaglehawk, persons are told that they must go to Bendigo to get any redress. Some new ground has been opened near the Hit and Miss Hotel, Milk-maid Flat, and at German Gully. Operations in quartz are increasing, though it cannot be denied that there is much disap- pointment and loss experienced. A branch reef of the celebrated New Chum has been struck, exceedingly rich. Many of the claims on the reef are yielding li...

TIIB RIGHT WRONGS NO MAtf. To the Editor of the Bendltjo Advertiser. I Deau Sib,—On perusing the roporta which appeared in tlio columns of the ' Advertiser' of the late public meetings held in Pall Mall, I find sovoral gross errors occur in my remarks to the diggers, which, I think, if allowed to go uncontradicted, might bo prejudicial to me. The first of those is as follows—I nin made to say in speaking about the:amonded regulations, " that there had been a great contcst, but they had got it, aud, in con scquenco, a memorial was to bo sent to the Governor against the regulations." "What! did nay is as follows—"They wero aware that to protect tlio miners at large from tho would-bo monopo lists, a clause lmd been pasted against a plurality of claims, and that in consequence of that a great outcry had been raised by tho big leaseholders against tho clause in question. That a meeting had been held, and a memorial adopted to the Governor against it, and which they tho monopolists wished...

A case containing hnif-a dozen of brandy, 4cc., found on the premises, was produced in Court. The Magistrate, in inflicting the maximum penalty of four months' imprisonment with hard labor, remarked that he had r...
ORIGINAL POETRY AN INCIDENT AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 22 September 1855
ORIGINAL POETKY. AN INCIDENT AT SEA. Our ship lay on the ocean, A spot upon the sen; A swell of heavy motion, The soils flapp'd heavily. No breath npon the waters To coo! the fevcr'd air, And cheer the mourning daughters That wept with wan despair. They gazed with tearful feeling Upon a fair young wife, Whose pulso was swift revealing The ebbing flood of life. Her lov'd one stood beside her In fearful ngony; Though earth was now denied her, In lleav'n she soon wonld be. lie know all hope was fleeting, And nought her life could save On high a place of meeting, Her soul from 'neath the ware. 'Twns his to bow with meekness. Nor murmur nt the lose, But shun his linmnn woaknen Like Him upon the cross. Mere let us draw a onrtain Upon such hallow'd grief; We know the grave is certain, Aud God onr sole relief. Next morn the "bells struck seven— To the bosom of tho sea The clay was gently given Of frail mortality. The seamen nil attended With dcop solemnity, And watched the wave that ended— ...

PATRIOTIC FUND BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 22 September 1855
PATIIIOTIC FUND BALL. The Ball which was liclil in Burall's assembly rooms on Tlmrsdtiy evening, in aid of tlic subscription towards the Patriotic Fund, will long be remembered with plcii9urc and satisfaction by the very large party which was present 011 the occasion. By one of thoao curious and felicitous coincidences which sometimos perplex and delight us, Thursday, tlio 20th Sept., was the anniversary of the battle of the Alma, of the first oc casion during the present war in which the Russians ex perienced and confessed the conquering valor of tho Allies. The Patriotic Fund Ball was looked forward to with mingled feelings of hope and apprehension, for those gentlemen who have so praisewortliily devgt»cl, K) their time and energies towards the getting-up of tlrif.. tertainment, justly dreaded a failure as the greatest dis grace to the district. The Ball, however, lias succeeded beyond expectations. The attendance was large, the arrangements complete, and the whole affair went off...

MELBOURNE. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] September 19, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 22 September 1855
MKLBOUHNK. [rilOlI OUIl OWN CORI1ESPONDEXT.] September 10. 1855. The arrival of the Defence, from -Liverpool, \yliich left the 21st June, brings European news five (lavs Jater than tliat already received. Tlie successes of tlio Allies iu the Crimen, narrated in the previous accounts, are further confirmed by the intelligence received by this ship. The Jlalakoff Tower had not been taken; it stjll remains an impediment iu the way of the entire investment of the Southern side of the fortress of Sebnstopol. The energy thrown into the operations of the besiegers, since General l'elissier lias assumed the command of the French, gives us every reason to expect that Scbastopol has long before this fallen into the hands of the Allies. Our successes ill tlio Sea of Azofl'liave been decided and continuous, und are of the greatest importance, ns thoy deprive tlio enemy of f' supplies of food nml other stores," upon -which they counted upon having in reserve.

THE HANGO MASSACRE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 22 September 1855
THE HANGO MASSACBE. In tin House of Commons, in answer to a question from Captain Buncombe, the following statement was made Sir 0. Wood regretted that the report was only too true. He had that day received despatches from Ad miral Dundas, the subataneo of which lie would slate giving an account of the transaction. Some time ago, her Majesty's ship Cossack took and destroyed some Russian vessels near Ilatigo, and thrcepersonswere made prisoners—the captain of one of the vessels, his son, and a sailor. Admiral Dundas, anxious not to use any un necessary severity towards the country, so long as the supplies for the Russian forces were intercepted, directed the Cossack to return to Hango, ill order to put ashore the persons so captured, who had requested to he put Ishore at that place. Poijr other Russians, who had also been taken prisoners, requested to be Jandec] there. The Cossmck thereupon went to Hango, and anchoring at some littl# distauce from the place, sent the ship's cutter w...
EXTENSION OF THE TOWNSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 22 September 1855
EXTENSION OF THE TOWNSHIP. | A week or two since, we published a memorial of cer tnin citizens of Sandhurst, protesting against imy further extension of the boundaries of the township, oil tlie score of injustice to those who had become purchasers of allot ments iu the township, at present lying unprofitably idle. The memorialists argued, with considerable justice, that the town boundaries were at present extensive enough, that the number of town allotments already sold was larger than the public requirements, and that bringing | any more land into the market would have the effect of reducing their value. The following answer from the Governor has been received by Mr. Bissill:— Colonial Secretary's Office, Melbourne, 17th September, 1850. Sir, In reply to the memorial forwarded by yon umler date August 2!)th, the receipt of which was acknowledged from this office on the 01st idem, His Excellency desires me to state— 1st.
