MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 4 March 1856

MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. The Wkatheii.—During the lust feu- days it hn3 been extremely warm, our summer comiug iu tlie autumn. A hot wind from the north-west prevailed (luring the greater part of yesterday, not peculiarly oppressive, but raising disagreeable clouds of dust. Last night vivid lightning was observable to the southward for some bourst. Ma M'Doxogh.—This gentleman has at length ful filled bis intention of coming to reside on Bendigo, and there can be no doubt of his snccess in his profession here if he choose to take pains to secure it. Mr. McDonogh has undoubted taleuts as a pleader, combined with a more than common energy, and we shall be ex tremely glad to see these devoted to an honorable and useful career. Itiv.ii. Theatres.—Our Ballaarat menus m noticing the erection of Coleman's Criterion Theatre on Bcndigo, scout the idea that it is anything equal to their Victoria, or Montezuma Theatre.

THE BENSON FUND. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 4 March 1856

THE BENSON FUND. The patriotism of the people of Bendigo seems a remarkably meagre commodity, to judge by the rise and progress of the Benson Fund. Here is this   faithful servant assiduously discharging his duties as one of the representatives of the district,— never absent from the Council—in constant attendance at Committee Meetings, and invariably voting on the rightside. Of course, to keep up his position with credit to himself and to the district which he represents, costs more money than he can well spare. Yet we seem oblivious of any claims upon our assistance and the Benson Fund is quietly al- lowed to add another to the long list of abortive good intentions with which a certain place is   paved. Bendigo has had no reason to be ashamed of the faithfulness of her representatives, who have stood true to the principles upon which they were elected, notwithstanding the malicious insinuations in certain quarters. It is, to say the least of it, becoming ...

CASTLEMAINE. (From the Correspondents of the M. A. Mail.) Jim Crow, 26th February. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 4 March 1856

CASTLEMAINE.   (From the Correspondents of the M. A. Mail.) Jim Crow,. 26th February.       There has been a great addition to our popula- tion during the past week. Boots's Gully and the new rush appear to be most attractive spots though many are settling down at Spring Creek and up about the Wombat the generality of the diggers are doing well. Dr. Buttner, of Spring Creek, (who has an ex-   tensive practice, and who appears to be a skilful man, had a narrow escape from falling into a hole, while on urgent duty near the Wombat. The doctor luckily perceived his danger, and jumped' clear, otherwise his life would have been in jeopardy. Had the doctor fallen into the hole we should have been deprived of medical assistance, as we are now of police protection. The steam engine is still continuing to do well, and some of the lucky diggers, who have struck the main reef are doing well, and some of them have already made thei...

M'IVOR. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Heathcote, 1st March, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 4 March 1856

M' IVOR. (from our own correspondent.).       Heathcote, 1st March, 1856. I am happy to be able to state that every day,   brings fresh proofs of the correctness of the opinion I have long maintained and expressed, relative to the M'Ivor quartz reefs. Whilst, those of which   I have before announced the discovery are still being worked with every success, new ones are being actively searched for, and in one instance the prospectors have been rewarded by the discovery of a vein of extraordinary richness, on the Red Hill, between Golden and Black Jack gullies. The fortunate finders are Messrs. Plummer and   Roberts ; and so rich were the specimens, that a bucketful of quartz, at a depth ef twelve feet, was estimated to contain at least two pounds weight of' gold. This was on Monday last, and a great rush to the Red Hill took place in consequence, and innu- merable claims marked off in a very short space of t...

Pursuant to advertisement, the Chairman of the Local Court, Mr. Mollison, accompanied by most of its members, mounted the hustings at two o'clock this afternoon for the purpose of electing a mem-   ber vice Mr. Charles Jones resigned. After wait- ing for some time for electors it was agreed to postpone the election for two hours. Between four and five o'clock they again came forward when about-three electors were present besides the members of the Court ; after some time it was agreed to proceed when the names of Mr. R. Johnston and Mr. William Robinson were given in. These gentlemen drew lots for priority' of   nomination, the lot falling on the latter. Mr. Foley then briefly proposed Mr. Robinson, and Mr. Monaghan as briefly seconded him. A show of hands was taken which was unanimously in favor of that gentleman. Mr. Robinson then addressed th...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Bendigo Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 6 March 1856

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Bendigo Advertiser. Sir,—Iu the report of the debute, on the question of mining on private property, the Surveyor-General is reported to have said, that it \va9 owing to the sale of laud in the very centre of Bendigo that the quartz reefs were opened up, and that to thi9 sale Bcmligo owed iu very existence. Now, it is a well-known feet, that when the diggers are driven from the back gullies in the sum mer time, in consequence of the scarcity of water: they set to work in considerable numbers on portions of the Bendigo Flat that are too wet to be worked during the wititer, A good many of these favorite spots arc now private property, a fact which I was made aware of on Monday, when after clearing tiwav a piece of ground on New C^um Fiat for the purpose of sinking a paddock, a gentleman came up and ordered us off the ground, at th is same time informing us that he would not permit his own brother to sink there, The consequence will be, tha...

AMERICA. (From the Argus.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 6 March 1856

AMERICA. (From the Argus.) Thore is little ictelligenco from the Atlantic states which has not boon anticipated by the news papers to the 27thDeeember, which havapreviously reached Melbourne. The Washington correspon dent of the San Francisco Herald, writing on the 19th December, gives the fallowing resume of news:— The engrossing topic of interest during the last fortnight has been our relations with Great Bri tain. Toe entire question, including the various sub jects of diplomatic controversy between the two countries has been elaborately discussed, and the chances of war were calculated very- generally by the press of the Atlantic, The effect was a conso lidation of public sentiment against Great Britain, and a stern determination among men of all parties to yield nothing but scorn and contempt in return for her menaces. The British press stated nothing definite as to the particular question of contro versy upon which the influence of the fleet was de signed to boar; but the Cent...

BALLAARAT. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 6 March 1856

BALLAARAT. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT. ) The road from Melbourne to Ballaarat is a standing disgrace to the Government of the colony, for with the exception of two or three places there is not the slightest evidence that Mr. Murphy and his Road Board have ever paid the slightest atten tion to it. The beautiful diversity of nature has been very little interfered with, and the coaches descend steep inclines, and ascend sidelings, ouly as American vehicles can. Governmental neg lect of Ballaarat is evinced not only in the road from Melbourne, but in almost everything relating to that rebellious goldfield. The roads throughout the district are in a disgraceful condition, and con trast strongly with those of Castleinaine and Sand hurst. It would appear that the Government are not fully alive to the importance of Ballaarat, or that there is studied neglect evinced towards it. Ballaarat is a noble district, possessing a goldfield perhaps second to none in the colony, and sur rounded with broad ...
