TIN MINES IN CORNWALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 September 1865

TIN MINES IN CORNWALL. The antiquity of the Cornish tin mines will ever be interesting to the world, on . account of the usefulness of this metal. There can be no doubt but the district men tioned in that interesting account was not only rich in tin in dajs of yore, but recent events prove that it is inexhaustible, from the fact that Dolcoath, aftei^retorning copper ores to the immense amount of upwards of three millions sterling, at the depth of 600 yards below the surface of the earth, is now immensely rich in tin ore. The whole of ? Wendron parish is, from history, the &o$k- ; mencement of the great western. basin of metalliferous minerals, such as tin and coppery The granite and schistose, or clay-elate, in this locality appear to.be enormously rich in tin and copper ores. The chain of hills called the Breaee hills intervenes hetww»n Wendron district and the so-called Marazion district, a vast mass of metals having bfeeri raised from the Breage Hills to the Lelant and St...

Wallaroo Times. WALLAROO: WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 September 1865

WALLAROO : WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 6. The progress of minerlal discovery in Australia lias been remarkable. It is now about twenty-two years since tlie first copper "mine (the Kapunda) was discovered. Two years later the Burra began to astonish the world, and from that period to the present the value of our mineral exports is expressed in millions sterling. The exports of copper, and copper and lead ores, during the year 1863 amounted to. £542,393 in value, against £94,831, in 1854. During the five years from 1854 to-1858, the mineral exports amounted to £1,490,551, while in the next five years 'they had increased to £2,399,739 ; making nearly four millions sterling in ten years. Since 1863 the ex ports have greatly increased. Our mines have been the means of attracting a large population the colony, and have afforded employment to many thousands. England has derived her stare of thebenefit result ing from the mines of South Australia; for tens of thousands of pounds' worth of machinery an...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 6 September 1865

INDIA. The Bengal Hurltaru says The great bathing day at Hudwar is now over, and those who came to perform their yearly ablutions in the sacred waters of the Ganges have left the place. There must have been at least three millions of visitors ; strictly speaking, it was not a fair—this is to follow—as there was nothing brought for sale. It is the anni versary of some great event that comes round every twenty years. The excellent arrange ments made by the police prevented many accidents; but several lives were lost in the streets by the pressure , of the. crowd seeking food or eagerly straining to reach the - sacred ghauts. Accidents of . more or less .. serious nature also occurred during the rush ' into the water at the first intimation given by the high priest of the commencement of the auspicious time for immersion. The number of deaths from thgse causes cannot be accu rately ascertained but it has. been estimated at from 40 to 400,: A large proportion of the bathers were women,-...

THE CAPTAIN OF THE DOON. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WALLAROO TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865

THE CAPTAIN OF THE DOON. TO THE EDITOR OJ? THE WAUjAROO TIMES. Sm,—In your columns of the 6th. appears a letter signed "Jack lairplay," which is the lumper's 'account of the Doon affair; and aB Captain Munro is not here, we have but their ver sion of it, the which I for one have not credulity enough to swallow. All the readers of the Times know by this time that the dispute was about a few shillings, hut do they know who was in the right ? The captain certainly paid their claim, not liking to lose the fine fair wind that was blowing by waiting to have the matter taken into court. I know iii this world a man is often considered guilty if unsuccessful: weighed in that scale the captain is found wanting, for the lumpers gained their point; but I cannot help exclaiming, O tempora, O mores I—which literally translated in the lumper vernacular, means " O scissors "—-that a captain should be knocked about, and taken out of his ship, when not lying safely, for a claim of a few shillings.

ADELAIDE GOSSIP. September 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865

ADELAIDE GhOSSIP. [FS03£ OU8 ADSLAJDEAN FBLESD.l September 7. After the news of the distressing drought in the Far North it is welcome intelligence to hear that some fine showers of rain hare fallen in that part of the colony. It is to be hoped that they will be sufficient to do good. Every few days people arrive from the North, and the same sad tale that the country is as dry and bare as our metalled roads, is told by all of them. Men who were con sidered rich last year are now, comparatively speaking, poor; and it is affirmed that only the very wealthy holders of runs will be able to bear out the bad season. A circumstance occurred this morning which excited a great deal of talk on 'Change. A remittance was forwarded to the . South. Australian Bank, but shortly after it reached the Bank it was missed. All the clerks and officers were searched, but nothing could be found on them. Subse quently, however, the money* "was discovered in a spot where it had evidently been planted. No cl...

POLICE COURT—PORT WALLAROO. Tuesday, Septembes 5. (Before J. B. Shepherdson, Esq., S.M.) Edward Nolan was charged with, permitting one William Henry Bray, an unlicensed person, to participate in the profits of his licensed house. The hearing of this charge was adjourned from last Court. Mr Taylor appeared for the defendant. Several witnesses were examined both for complainant and defendant. His Worship said that he considered the charge to be proved, and referred to the power given to him by statute, by which he could either fine the defendant or deprive him of his licence; but, —inasmuch as he understood that the house was going to be transferred to another party—if he were to annul the licence he might be inflicting an injury upon innocent parties, and therefore he would inflict the lowest penalty, viz., £5, including ! costs. i Mr Taylor'gave notice of appeal. Henry Bray was charged by Hannah Maria; Nolan, the mother of the above-mentioned defen dant, with assaulting, beating, an...

THE SATURDAY HALF-HOLIDAY MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865

THE SATURDAY HALF-HOLIDAY MOVEMENT. Pursuant to announcement the mechanics of the township met together at the Cornucopia Hotel; on Thursday evening, to consider what steps should be taken to procure the half-holiday on Saturdays. Mr Chauke was appointed Chairman, who, after reading the notice calling the meeting, said he had received a letter from Messrs Heath and Anderson, who had met at the Cornucopia on the 30th August to discuss the question of a half holiday on Saturdays, they being the only two who had attended. The letter stated that the writers could not accede to the wishes of the men at the present time. They did ncrt dispute the jfesir&bility of a reduction in the hctars of labour, but the great competition that existed here among the builders caused contracts to be taken at so low a rate that they were not in a position to pay the present rate of wages and reduce the hours of; labour. Now, the Chairman proceeded to say, itwas for that meeting to consider what co...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865

TASMANIA. The Cornwall Chronicle (Tasmania) lias the following respecting the Devil's Den Grolddiggings:—" The following is the commissioner's last report to the Colonial Secretary:—4 August 21,1865, Launces ton. Sir,-—X have the honour to state that during the last week but little gold has been discovered at the Den Diggings. This is, however, easily accounted fbl- by the fact that nearly all the diggers have been engaged in finding new ground, even the prospectors themselves having oiearly entirely suspended working in their original claim, from which all the heavy gold has hitherto been obtained. They appear to have been induced todo this! from the hopes of discovering elsewhere; the quartz reef from which that gold has j been liberated. I have further the honour to report that a quartz reef has actually been struck bv a party working an admin-, m f S. . mt O . "J .] ing claim to Messrs.

Wallaroo Times. WALLAROO: SATURDAY, SEPT. 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865

WALLAROO : SATURDAY, SEPT. 9. On thinking over the subject of mineral discovery, it has occurred to us that an occasional article on metallurgy, while not altogether uninteresting ta our readers, might be very useful to some members of the community. "We do not presume to set ourselves up as teachers of those who have had years of practical experience, and by which they have learned to " know tin," but we may give a few hints which may possibly lead to some discovery, and should this be the case, we shall feel that our labour has not been lost. Hitherto the variety of metalliferous ores successfully worked in this colony has been extremely limited. Copper is the most plentiful; then lead, and silver in connection with it. G-old is found in small quantities in many parts of the colony, but tlo systematic efforts have been made to work auriferous quartz reefs. "Were this done we believe it would be found more remunerative than alluvial digging, for we have frequently heard the opinion...

Watermen who have spent their last shillinginpayingfo¥ha^ing tKeirlrbaCs conveyed from Hokitika, are prevented from plying until they take out a business ' licence—an ordinary waterman's licence (which is sufficient in Hokitika), through some wilful misinterpretation of the law, being insufficient.

EXTRAORDINARY SNAKE ADVENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 9 September 1865

EXTRAOKCINAEY SNAKE ADVEN TURE. The Swan-hill correspondent of the River ineHerald is responsible forthe following snake adventure" I may mention a snake story that at present obtains in this quarter. It "would seem that two men, belonging to Mr Cameron, of TJliima station, were passing by one of the tanks upon the Sand-hills station, belonging to Messrs Cuningham and Macredie, when,to their horror and surprise, an immense snake or serpent raised its huge length to the height of ten feet from the ground, and 'flung at once its venom and its strength.1 For tunately, however, the reptile's aim was faulty, »o thatthe.two men escaped with a fright; ^ut the flight was so great that it will take them years to get over it,, if, indeed;, they ever recover their pristine equanimity. ..
