The Diggings. IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE TURON, [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 12 July 1851

The Diggings.   IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE TURON.     We learn from Mr. Bush that he has just received a letter from his partner, Mr. W. Hardy, who is superintending a party at the Turon diggings on behalf of the firm, in which he states the astounding fact that they have procured 10 lbs. of gold with a quick silver machine, in something Iess than two days. The letter, he states, was evidently written in a hurry, and Mr. Hardy is not very explicit as to the time. Mr. Bush is prepared to say that it cannot be more than two days, and is probably less.

Local Intelligence. Wellington Gold Country. — A gentleman who lias just returned from Wellington, informs us that Mr. Stewart's party, ampngst; whom was M'Grctfgor the gold-finder, have not succeeded according to their expectations. The gold found in the quartz he says does not' exist in sufficient abundance to repay the work necessary to procure it, without the employment of improved modes of labour or the application of machinery.

THE ARRIVALS OF YESTERDAY. Sydney Morning Herald, July H, 1851. A steam-vessel with troops having arri ved at the Cape in thirty^seren days, brought English news to the 16th March, which had been received at Adelaide via Swan River.. The summaries given, how* .ever, are so very Ecant that we are unable to gather any additional news to that previously received via Singapore. No parliamenttry news is giver. The revolu tionary spirit in Italy and Austria wai gathering strength, nnd an immediate out' break was expected. The Kaffir war still continued. There had been several sharp engagements, in which the Kaffirs suffered considerably. They continued, however, to keep possession of . the main roads so as to interrupt communication between William's Town and Graham's Town. Large rein forcements, of troops were expected, as three war steamers were to be sent from England with soldiers without deluy.

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 19 July 1851

JfflfettHaneous Extracts. Labour as a Profession. — There is a vast amount of foolish discussion and false' sentiment in regard to the respectability ^ of labour professions. Every pursuit of in duBtry that is honest, and promotive of human well-being, is respectable, honour able, and dignified. The profession of -la- bour has no essential merit in itself, beyond being more or less productive.; the merit belongs entirely to the manner of its pur suit. It is hard to say which of the two is most vulgar — he who decries and scorns all labour that is soiled or soiling, all com mon every day toil, or he who values labour only as begrimed with dirt, and who turns up his nose at the man who works with hands or face cleaner than his own. Both are immensely .vulgar, and both will have to learn much before they truly understand the nature and dignity of labour es a profes sion.— Glasgow Sentinel.

HUNTER'S RIVER. [From our own Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 19 July 1851

? HUNTEfl'S RIVER. ''[From our own Correspondent.'] ' The Goi.d Manx a.— Within the last tight or ten days several persons who left this district some time since for the diggings have returned. Scarcely a single instance has come under our notice where either-ari individual or a party has been successful. Their want of success, from our own knowledge of their adaptability and the, suitableness of their implements, as well as their plentiful supplies of provisions, could not have arisen from any want of energy on their part. One person, an acquaintance of ours, in company with two others whom he fell in with at Ophir, informs us that ?they worked at that place for several weeks, and did not, during any one week that they re mained there, realize enough of the precious metal to pay for their rations. Another party of six, whom we know to be posses sed of all the necessary energy requisite for gold seekers, and who had laid in an ample supply of provisions, implements, &c./ aft...

THE GOLD DISCOVERIES IN OUR DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 19 July 1851

THE GOLD DISCOVERIES IN OUR DISTRICT. (From the Goulburn Herald, July 12. J Since our last issue abundant evidence have reached us of the fact that the police district of Goulburn is auriferous to a great extent, and that time and labour only are required to develop its hidden riches. From every quarter have we received wellauthen ticated intelligence that gold has been found both at the north-west and south-east of the district, and ' prospecting' parties have averred that the indisputable indications of its presence are visible in numberless places. The present season is unfavorable to the prosecution of exploration, and therefore it is not surprising that the material evidence of the actual existence of what 1ms been so arduously sought for, are small. How ever, individual exertions, limited by the cause we have alluded to, have placed the vexed question beyond doubt} and we have now the pleasure of congratulating the in habitants of the southern counties on the successful result...
