MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) Tuesday, 26th Feb., 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 28 February 1856
MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MIXING REPORTER.) Tuesday, 26th Feb.. 185G. Once more the Commissioner's Gully is a scene | of activity. A few days ago, a rush took place to J a patch of jiew ground, on the side of the gully, opposite to the back • of the Camp, which report saying it had turned out well, induced many who had either formerly worked there or had heard from others of its riches, to dive into the mass of uprooted and oft-turned cla3', in search of a I bit of a pillar^ or other solid ground. In many i places the old bottom is found worth' breaking up and washing, and a number of people are steadily employed all along'this gully. • (J wing to the water reserve being at the foot of tliis gully, no puddling machines have been allow ed in it, but the.gully is being carted away for .washing in machines elsewhere, and not less than a dozen'carts are constantly at work" making considerable iri-i-oads into it. There is little doubt but that the greater portion of it will pay, and...

We may safely say that there is not a Province in Now Zealaud, a colony in these seas, or a coun try, big or litt'e, anywhere in the world, with the single exception of the Proviuce of Wellington, which can devote throe-fourths" of Its gross reven ues towards the construction, maintenance, or im provement of works of public utility. The amount of money which will be available to the Provincial Government, during the year just commenced,will not fall very far short of £'10,000. Of this amount about £10,000 will defray the cost of the Civil Government; which will leavo little loss than £30,000 for public works and undertakings.

THE POST OFFICE/ Whatever may have been the arbitrary division of time, by which chron'ologists have distinguished different epochs in the history of the world, there litis not been one which has not been marked by some one prominent characteristic. The periods in which the'arts of improvement were either sta tionary or retrogressive have been designated " the Dark Ages,"—not because there were not men in those times to preserve and perpetuate the knowledge and'learning which previously existed, hut because civilisation came to a stand still, and that society, like the purest water when it becomes stagnant, loses its salubrious qualities, and im pregnates the air with mephitic vapors injurious to the health of&lt;man in body and in mind.
