On Thursday the first machine was washed, and the net yield was 15 cz. This return, of which there is every prospect of a continu ance, will rank it equal to any in the district, and as a consequence will exercise ail important in fluence upon the progress and prosperity of Smythesdale, as it proves the existence of a valuable gold field to the north of the township, hitherto untried.

THE BUSHRANGERS.-About ten o'clock on Tues poy night two drays, carrying general store goods tot Mr Marshall, of Gundagai, wero stuck up and robbed near Devi ne'e, three miles on the Y'ass side of Gunning. The highwaymen were Hull, Gilbert, Dunn, nrnl Clarke. Dunn was armed -with Mr Davis's revolving rifle. Si ir eases from one dray and two cases from another were broken open and their contents strewn about, the bushrangers saying they were looking for overcoats. None of these were, however, in the packages, »nJ they therefore con tented themselves with talcing a pair of Wellington boots apiece and some Crimean shirts. They re mained about an hour un;l a hill at the drays, and afterwards proceeded towards Collector; but it is supposed they afterwards wheeled round, as it was from that direction they had come. After their departure, about twelve o'clock, the police at Gun ning were apprised of the outrage, and senior con stable O'Brien with a party immediately started off in pursuit....

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. CAMBRIAN HILL KOAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 29 March 1865

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. CAMBRIAN HILL KOAD. Sjk.-The amalgamated ivisdom of tlie Buninyong Shire Council is truly, surprising. A sub-committee was recently appointed to personally inspect and report as to the best place for a road or approach of some sort to Cambrian Ilill. Now, be it observed, previous to this appointment, the Bonshaw Company offered the Council land requisite for all the purposes of the requirement for a merely nominal sum. This line of ruud is approved of, and was, indeed, recom mended by Mr IJoyd, surveyor to the Council, as being the cheapest and by far the most eligible for nil parties most intimately concerned. This road, as recommended by Mr Boyd, would leave the main Government road in the flat below Cobbler's Ilill, enter the Bonu.'mw property there, pass that com pany's No. 1 shaft, and debouch on Crown lands close to the Alston and Weardale Company's shaft, and there join a rccognised road or street which pusses through the business portion of Cambrian Hil...
