DISCOVERY OF TIN ORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 29 July 1856

DISCOVERY OF TIN ORE.     The following correspondence, which we ex- tract from the Herald, will be interesting to many of our readers :— " OUR MINERAL RESOURCES. "To the Editor of the Herald.   "SIR,—Having purchased from a party of   diggers a parcel of gold from the Back Creek, Taradale, which contained a large relative por-   tion of a dark-colored mineral, very heavy and   difficult to separate, we handed it over to Mr George Foord, for examination, whose state- ment, possessing general interest, we enclose.

[ NEW ZEALAND GOLD-FIELDS. ] Ix relation to thc Nelson gold-fields, the Exami ner has the folio wing paragraph : "The present low range of the thermometer is unfavourable to the prosecution of the search for gold at our dig gings. Although the precious metal is found in every bucket of soil, the quantity obtained has hitherto not been sufficiently large to com pensate for the discomforts which the diggers have to put np with. Mid-winter, the moun tains coated with snow, and thc valleys each morning white with frost, is rather trying to men who have to sleep out under tents, or in rudely constructed warries. Those who persevere atc making, we are told, good wages, but there liave been, as yet, no great prizes discovered no nuggets that will make a fortune. Many, therefore, who have tried their hands at digging for gold have abandoned the pursuit until the spring, when, assisted by more genial weather, they declare their intention to renew the search. Meanwhile, a few adventurous spir...

I am represented as writing-" To those who are more concerned to prop up thc Denominational System, because of the aid it affords to erect churches, rather than from a sincere desire to promote the best education, we submit the fol lowing facts." If you refer to the manuscript I think you will find it thus-" To those who conclude from your remarks that ice are more concerned to prop up the Denominational Sys tem because " &c.

THE BROWN HILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 31 July 1856

I THE BROWN HELL. .What can have become nf the original Brown Hfll line, is a question that has been puzzling, the miners every day these last three years. That a steadv, deepening, and in many por tions richly paying lead, should suddenly die away or run out, and be no more discovered, is a state of tilings that cannot reasonable be thought of. That there has been a breach in the hue's course is clear enough; but that any check ofthat sort has utterly put an end to thc run of the gold is an idea which the Brown Hill miners are slow to entertain. And they havo good reason on their side ; for*, - as_ most of us remember, a great quantity of paying aurifer ous ground has been found out at tunes near the spot, ever since the main lead was lost. Some of these patches paid remarkably wen, so long as they lasted ; but as they appeared to be quite disconnected from the old workings and from each other-for the several bottoms lay at very unequal depths-they failed to lead to the re-possessi...

The latest news from White Horse and Frenchman's is of a cheering description, and that from the Green Hills is unusually good. A new rush, on a large scale, is said tç have set in at the White Flat, in the direction of Golden Point : but with what amount of success remains to be seen. At all events it seems clear that the miners have considerable earnest inten tions in this quarter, for upwards of 300 claims have been marked out since last Saturday. The lead-if lead it be-is thought to be heading for Mount Pleasant. In this case we shall be able to number another and totally different portion of the distric...
