STANLEY PARK COAL MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent and Illawarra and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 11 August 1863
STSLTYT Panc CoAT I MIxE.-This addi tion to our resources willb e opened in shout n month. It is situated at Stanley Park, about ten miles souati of Port Aitken. The company consists of Mr. Miitchell, the los. see of the land on whichl the mine is situated Mr. Browne, of Newcastle, Mr. Furlong, and other gentlemen. Two "drafts," s miners term them. have been driven into the mine, one of which is 59 yards. and the other about 11 yards in length. The seanm is about 6 feet 6 inches in depth, and con tains coal of excellent qnalitv. The com pany will possess great ficilities for the shilament of coals, the mine being so close to the sea that the coals may almost be shipped from the month of it. No trail way, save that running into the mine, will be required; and hence, there will be n aInrge saving in the prime cost of the coals. Thie lharbor admits of the entrance of largo ships, there being 30 feet of water close to the rock, at low tide. The larboris merely a bight, open to the North...

TIlE COAL SEATIS OF SHOALI'IAVEN. [FRIM TIIE 51ERhALD.. Our friend "Aramis " has lately detailed a visit to our locality, but as hIe did not ex plore the mountains thereof, we may fairly concludo that a short account of a trip to them will be interesting. On tlhe north of the rich alluvial fiats of Shloalhaven, stretching from east to west, are tihe Canmbcewarra Rlanges attaining a height of about thlree tlhousand feet. Along the lower spurs lie farms nestling amosg the trees and gradually creeping up tle precipitous ravines, where the midday ssu never visits the dark vegetation. One day last woeek, a party having got scent of " black diamonds," resolved to see lhowv much truth lay at the bottom of tlhe report. We were fonr, who, assembling on the south bank of the river, put our saddles and bridles in a punt, and worked across tlhe magnificent river, hero more than a third of a mile in width, to the Bomedary Creek. About hlalf-a-mile up this creek we landed, and after a short delay...

It is now .five.years since the famous, or rather, .'iifaious, case'of "Doctoring" a prize bull; by affising artificial horns with gutta porcha, startled the agricultural world, and engaged the attention of the local Circuit for nearly a day. On that occasion the culprit was fortunate'enough to escape conviction and punifshment, through a .legal technicality ably and successfully pleaded by his counsel; and while the result of the trial .gave satis faction to those who objected to an in dividual being singled out as the victim of a system only discovered in his person, everybody supposed that the example then made would relieve'all the agricultural societies in the kingdom from a ...

The disease in question being, in the fashionable language of the day, "aceli matised" in' Victoria, it is not surprising that tihe means of coping with it has be come the most conmmunon topic of conversa t.ion amongst stock-owners of every grade.

THE POST-OFFICE ESTAELISHMENT. The Post Office establishment is still very far from being a self-sustaining de lpartment, The expeinditure outruns the income by £25,000 a.year, exclusive of the £20,000 per nuamnm'paid as our share of the ocean mail subsidy. This drain upon tiho genenral revenue mnst be sot down as part of the cost of govornment. It would be impossible to do without a post-office system. 1No private speculators would take the business in hand eoven if they were al lowed. They might, indeed, make a profit by maintaining communicationubotween tihe metropolis and&'a few of the chief inland towns, but all the scattered" parts of the country would be neglected.
