FOREST CREEK DIGGINGS. 17th April, 1852. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 22 April 1852
FOR1ST ClIEEIi DIGGINGS. [FRO.M OUR OWN COR!RESPONDENT.] 17th April, 1852. IN my last communication of this day week, I mentioned that rain had fallen; we hare Lad a few showers since, but not nearly enough to affect the water-holes; the weather has been cool and pleasant, tlh? warm summer days are evidently gone for the season ; and we are now lodking, w th nolittle trepidation, forthe advent of winter. Isay with no little tre pidation for to the greater number of diggers, it will be their first winter in the bush; we all know that the Austra lian winter is usually mild compared to that of Britain, but most of us only know what it is in a four walled house, replete with all domestic comforts; what wintermay be like in a calico tent, with out those comforts which former winters have found us in possession of, we do not know. Then as to the main object, i.e., gold getting, there is room for fear that in winter we may be as much hindered by too much water, as we have been in sum mer b...
TERMINATION OF COLONAL MISRULE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 22 April 1852
TJER3LYIATION OF COLONAL MISRULE. IF indignant protests from these colonies, and vigorous newspaper articles at home, can effect a reform, a termination ap proaches to colonial misrule by the Co lonial-office, or the English Colonial Minister, be he the Earl Grev or Lord Bhack. The ' Times' says that the apathy of the pubhc and of Parliament upon the subject of our colonial govern ment is the cause of serious evil, not only to the colonists, but also to our seires. So long as affairs go quietly in appearance, the nation, unfortunately, is satisfied. Any appeal to Parliament is useless: a de.f ear is turned to every complaint, and, by dint of sheer inditffer ence, every critic of the existing system is effectively silenced. The officials of Downing-street have full liberty to do as little or as much as they please, and the Colonial Secretary is a potentate ex ercising uncontrolable sway. The con sequence of this neglect on the one part, and freedom on the other, are made re markably ...
BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 22 April 1852
BA LLARAT. AsP.Trv has thrown her leaden wings over the diggings. Months of intense excitement are followed by a relapse, and men used to profuseness, care little to work for that which a twelvemonth ago would have been deemed an ample recom pense for their toil. Enterprize has goeac asleep, and that spirit of discovery which led men in August last to the gold field of Ballarat, now slumbers in a blanket, yawns and stretches in recumbency, or sprawls among the picks and shovels, and mutters " water;" then turns round and awaits the winter. The rains of Carthage could not have presented a more mournfil appearance to M3arius, than do the tumuli of Ballarat to one who saw the same place teeming with intense life and activity. Immense yields have given birth to a fever spirit of fortune-making; and now comes the relapse, and with it food for serious consideration. I uonld not be an alarmist ; yet,nithin sight of Golden Point, I cannutshantmy eyes to what may happen elsewhere. I see a vi...
