BATHURST. "THE DIGGINGS." [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 12 June 1851

BATHURST. ' THE DIGGINGS.' (From the Bathurst Free Press. ) From our latest advices, we learn that a strong feeling of hostility prevails against the monthly tax of thirty shillings, amongst the miners. Numbers have already left the diggings .upon learning the nature of the published regulations, and it is ex- - pected that Government will have some difficulty in enforcing the law. Besides . those who have left, others who fear that a collision may take place are preparing to leave. Many have openly declared their intention not to pay thirty shillings who ?nrrvnlrl liovp smhrMmit.tpil t.n n. mnrfi vflasrmnhlfi charge. By some it is regarded as an attempt on the part of ' Government to protect the stockholder by forcing many who will be unable to pay for a license, to betake themselves to their ordinary occn-' pations.
