NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 September 1862
NEW ZEALAND. COROMANDEL.-The news'from the diggings is more and more encouraging. In No. 13 another large find of between 350 and 400 ounces of auriferous quartz has been made, and found, moreover, in one day. The for tunate possessors valued it at £1,000. A correspondent states that a very large find has been got on one of the leaders which cross the Driving Creek. According to one party's account upwards of £300 worth was obtained on one claim, last Friday; and others were picking up very rich specimens on the hill side, anfong the dead grass and leaves. At the Kopoutauaki Creek one party had obtained five ounces of fine "gold, perfectly free from quartz; but, owing to the great quantity of rain that has fallen, had been again compelled to desist till the return of more moderate wea ther. There can be little doubt that it will prove a good summer digging, and fine wea ther is anxiously looked for. The diggers who have been for any length of time in Coromandel are in excellent spir...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE, . _____ "*V-» I THE GEOLOGY OF MOUNT GAMBIEE. -Our readers are aware, that the Bev* Mr. ^ood of Penola is about to publish a work illustrative of the Geology of the district of which Mount Gambier is the centre. But we are only in the infancy of scientifically - conducted researches into ^ the geology of South Australia For instance, we are told that Mr, George French Angas was some time since en gaged in geological researches at the mouth of the Unkaparinga, , the result being the discovery of some^Very inter esting specimens, supposed to be cre taceous. Mr. Angas immediately for warded specimens to the Eev. Mr. Clarke, the well-known geologist of IfeW South Wales, and that gentleman has written a letter in reply, stating that the specimens sent to him bear all the char acteristics of cretaceous origin ; that they are highly interesting in a scientific point of view : and that they carry back our ideas of the Murray fossils to a far re moter period than that usu...

MOUNT GAMBIER TRAMWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 September 1862
MOUNT GAMBLER TRAMWAY. IN a former issue we urged upon the leaders of public opinion in this district the importance of immediately appealing to the Legislature on the subject of a Tramway from Blount Gambier to Port Macdonnell, which we described as the first, the" most momentous want of the community. We presented no elaborate details either of cost or of advantages de rivable from such a work, though much might be said on each of these particulars: we only spoke of the tramway as being absolutely necessary for the advancement and prosperity of. this part of the colony. Our earnest conviction of this neces sity is not less strong than our convic tion of the importance of urging this question on the attention of Govern ment, and that IMMEDIATELY. Our apathy, our want of unanimity, in ques tions of public weal-our lack of public spirited men to initiate the discussion of ! questions of this useful character, and to agitate until they are carried out have hitherto combined to place u...
GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 3 October 1862
GENERAL NEWS, TIIE ATTORNEY-GENERALSHIP.-The House of Assembly has affirmed, by a majority of nine, " That it is not expe dient that the Attorney-General should have a seat in this House, but that a new office be created, the person filling such office to be one of the five Ministers who must be members of the Legislative Council or House of Assembly, and an ex officio member of the Executive Council.'' The debate was originated some weeks ago by Mr. Magarey in a speech of con siderable ability, and lias been resumed at intervals, until on Friday last week the division was taken, with the result which we have indicated above. The " Argus" Otago correspondent describes the condition of the miners on the Clutha diggings as frightful. In Dune din above 400 writs have been issued in the Supreme Court against debtors. At Ballarat there is much excitement about land frauds, the squatters having purchased all the choice lands. Another gold-field has been found near Invercargill (Province o...
MR. LANDSBOROUGH'S EXPLORATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 3 October 1862
MR, LANDSBOROUGH'S EXPLO RATIONS. At the last meeting of the Exploration Committee held at the hall of the Royal Society, Mr. Landsborougli's journal of his recent expedition was received and handed over to the daily papers for pub lication. It appeared in extenso in the Argus, but is too lengthy for transference to our columns. It contains a fair account of the proceedings of Mr. Landsborough's party-consisting with himself of five individuals, two of whom were natives-from the time it left the depot formed by Captain Norman on the Albert River until its arrival, more than three months afterwards, at the settled districts at the outskirts of the adjoining colony. The departure from the depot took place on the 11th February, and at first Walker's tracks towards the Flin der's River were followed with the view of falling in with Burke's track, which Mr. Walker had reported striking. The heavy rains which had fallen had, how ever, nearly obliterated the marks, and they became so indis...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE ABORIGINES. [To THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 3 October 1862
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE, THE ABORIGINES. [To THE EDITOK.] Sir,-A correspondent or some inquisi tive body lias publicly called upon the Crown Ranger to render an account of the money expended forwarded to him on behalf of the unfortunate Aborigines, and I trust that officer will promptly comply with the request, and thus afford the public the satisfaction that the intentions of the Legislature, who voted the money, have been carried out. There is, no doubt, much room for improvenient in the management of these funds in the Australian Colonies. "We hear that there exist an authority in Victoria termed a Board, to watch over the interests of the Aborigines, who are entrusted with the expenditure of the money voted by the Legislature-which appears to be a model plan. This Board is, it is to be regretted, irresponsible, and what becomes of the money is merely a conjecture-no account is ever published. Flour is sent by that Board to Gipps Land from Melbourne. Why is it not purchased in Gi...

THE ^OUMT OA^IiER RASES. - STEWAEDS :-J. C. Lyon, Esq. : A. S. Hobbs, Esq.; Jas. \Vallis, Esq. STARTER C.^Gr. Doughty, Esq. That long expected event-the Mount Grambier Baces-" came oiF," to use the sporting phrase, on Friday and Saturday last. There hacl been much speculation as to whether or not the weather would prove propitious, and up to nearly the close of last week the "odds" were rather against favourable anticipations. But about the middle of the week the ^itpid rise of the temperature excited pleasant hopes; the roads began to dry up; and as the barometer had rather a steady aspect, the event was looked forward to with that buoyancy of feeling which characterises all classes when a general and pleasant holiday is anticipated. All preliminary arrangements were completed on Thursday evening. The entries were made: the booth-holders had erected their refreshment stands; and Isriday was unanimously voted a general holiday, when every body was to be "out of town," and tho Bace C...

NO CONFIDENCE! [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 3 October 1862
NO CONFIDENCE! THERE has-been ii great " field ,(layf " in the political- world of Adelaide; and Ministers liave narrowly escaped a de feat, the result of which would have been a resignation, a new Ministry, a " politi cal crisis," and perhaps an immediate appeal to the' general constituency of South Australia. The cause of this ori ginated in the House o'f Assembly 011 "Wednesday, September 24; and it was based on the following motion: Mr. Bagot moved " That this House has no confidence in the present Ministry." The position in which he was placed in having to move that motion was one he had not contemplated a few months ago. He thought from the Governor's Speech and the promises made that the Ministry was such a Ministry as would gain His support providing they carried out those promises. The most telling speech of the debate was the one made by the Attornr y Gene ral. He traced the "No Confidence " motion to a small political intrigue; and assumed that the House and country were ...
THE DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 3 October 1862
THE DINNER The Race Dinner was given in the large room of Long's Hotel; and it was quite an 'artistic production, which would have elicited the approbation of thatprince, of gastronomists, Monsieur Soyer himself. We reg:etted, how ?ever, to see lather a select than numerous attendance; and missed the company of some of the squatters of the district, whom we should have iked to have seen present. J. C. Lyon, Esq., S.M., occupied the chair. The usual loyjd and complimentary toasts were given ; and the company separated at an early hour.
THE LATE INQUEST AT ROBE. [THE THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 3 October 1862
THE LATE INQUEST AT ROBE. | i THE EDITOR.] Mr. Editor,-My dear Sir, on reading your correspondent's communication in reference to the above subject, I was not a little surprised to find his efforts were | almost wholly "directed to produce the | impression that'the object which the first jury had in 'view was to ascertain Where the blacks got the drink from, and who were the parties actually supplying it. As one of the first jury I feel anxious to set the public right on the inatter^your correspondent's article being calculated to mislead^it. The first Jury never re tired to consider a verdict at all, but merely to consider if they had sufficient evidence to pronounce one. They never regarded the blacks as prisoners at the bar, nor did the Coroner, nor did the Clerk of the Court ever use the words &lt;;the prisoners." Police-Trooper Budd never charged them as PRISONERS guilty of the murder, before the Jury. There were six blacks, not FOUR ; they were all arrested on suspicio...
