WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 July 1851
WELLINGTON. Most of the parties who left tins town have re turned satisfied with their trip to the diggings. They originally intended to remain a month by way of experiment, being mostly married men with families, and that period expired about yesterday. Mr. White and Mr. Hey wood, innkeepers, and Mr. Wood, storekeeper with their respective parties, and many others have returned. It is the intention of our neighbours to proceed to Mitchell's Creek about seven miles from the town, in preference to Sum mer Hill. Mr. Stewart of Sydney and party, amongst whom is the gold finder M'Greggor, have been successful in finding some beautiful specimens of gold, some of which Mr. Stewart was good enough to forward to Dr. Curtis (the Commissioner of Crown Lands within the boundary) for inspec tion. Many other parties near the creek have also been fortunate. As specimens Mr. Stewart's may vie with any yet discovered. The gold is pro nounced by competent judges to be far superior in quality to that...
HAVILAH DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 July 1851
HAVILAH DIGGINGS. In our last we inserted a communication irom our O'Connell correspondent, stating that gold had been found by Mr. Hebblewhite, of Sydney, within an hour's walk of the township of O'Connell. Yesterday Mr. H. called at our office with an ounce of the gold of Havilah, which corresponds in ap pearance to that of the Turon, being fine, and of a lu-iffht mire colour. A few of the following par ticulars were kindly furnished by him. The Havilah diggings commence on the Rev, Mr. Walker's pre-emptive land, which stretches backwards from Ralph's Plains towards Campbell's River. They extend along Stoney Creek, about which slate and quartz are found in abundance. Stoney Creek empties itself into Campbell's River, about 17 to 18 miles from Bathurst, and affords a pretty constant supply of water. When Mr. Hebblewhite left on Wednesday there were about fifty people at work with a fair prospect of success, and men and teams were daily arriving. Mr. Fulton, of Macquarie Plains, had...
OPHIR DIGGINGS. July 2nd, 1851. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 July 1851
OPHIR DIGGINGS. July 2nd, 1851. The diggings certainly do not present that lively appearance at the present time which they were wont to do some two or three weeks back. Yester day and to day the excavators were widely scattered, and many of' the miners were evidently dodging the Commissioner, inasmuch as when he appeared at a distance, several cradles were to be seen with out owners. This circumstance, together with the diminution in numbers of diggers, is of course, to be accounted for by- what is generally considered to be the government impost of 30s. per month for each man; and certainly if I might be permitted to offer any opinion, I should say that the Govern ment would have realised thrice the amount of re venue which' they now do, and t;he gold-seekers would have been more satisfied, had a more lenient tax been levied ; however, that is only an opinion. Numbers have left for the Turon, and fresh arri vals from Goulburn and elsewhere are daily arriv ing- I was just now in Mr...
Country News. BATHURST. TURON DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 July 1851
©ottitttj? VTrtD** BATHURST. TURON DIGGINGS. (From the Bathurst Free Press.) An extensive migration from Ophir is now taking place to the Turon, and numbers are daily arriving there from Sydney, Maitland, and even from New England. Bathurst is now comparatively quiet. There is little gold selling, and few people passing upwards through the town. The Sydney arrivals either turning oft' at the Green Swamp, or up the Mudgee Eoad, thus reach the Turon without touch ing the town. By enquiries made from respectable parties, we learn that there are now from 800 to 1000 miners at work, stretching over seven or eight miles of the Turon rivulet. Stores are rising in rapid succes sion. There are now about seven or eight in full trade, besides several retail butcher's shops, which are supplied with fat stock by Mr. Suttor. Mr. Clapham is now erecting a house of accommodation for travellers. Everything appears to be brisk, busy, and lively. The activity of Ophir appears to be transferred to the ...

CONSECRATION OF THE RIGHT REV. DR. KEANE, ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP OF ROSS. (From the Cork Examiner. ) This ceremony — at all times one of the most im pressive in the Catholic Church, but at the present time, particularly, rendered more interesting and important — was performed in the parish chapel ot Midleton on Sunday last. The chapel, which is an edifice capable of affording very large accomodation, was crowded to excess bv a conereeation whose at tentive and pious demeanour was most edifying to witness. Shortly after ten o'clock, the Bishops, at tended by their respective Chaplains, and followed by the Clergy in attendance, left the Sacristy, and proceeded to the steps of the altar, where the cere monies were commenced. The Consecrating Bishop was the Most Rev. Dr. Slattery, Archbishop of Cashel ; Chaplain, Very Rev. Dr. Leahy, V.G.a Thurles. The Assistant Bishops were the Right Rev. Dr. Murphy, Bishop of Cleyne, and the Right Rev. Dr. Ryan, Bishop of Limerick, attended by their re...

BOOKS USED BY THE DENOMINATIONAL SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 July 1851
BOOKS USED BY THE DENOMINA TIONAL SCHOOLS. Some time ago the advocates of schools, for which the title National is attempted to be usurped? but which we must consider and cull, irreligious school, from their obvious *nrl unavoidable tendencies, directed the at tention of the public in great triumph to their list of books as being immeasurably superior to thai possessed by the Denomina tional Schools. Without discussing ' the tenableness of their boast, or doing 'more than remind our readers that the end and meaning of education are nob at all the same with men who believe religion the one thing needful and certain, and with men who be lieve it may be left to occupy the second place and that it is simply a matter of opi nion, and that therefore the means and pro cesses of education are not at all likely to be estimated by the same measure of value, we have now the grat.ficat.ion of calling public attention to a list of books used by, and mainly published for, the Denomina tional Scho...
Extract from the Athenoeum, 14th December. 1850. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 July 1851
Extract from the Athencewn, 1 4th Decem ber. 1850. Australian Geography toith the Shores of the Pacific and those of the Indian Ocean ; designed for the use of Schools in New South Wales, at the request of the Deno minational Board of Education, by Lieut. Col. Sir T. L. Mitchell, SurveyorGene ral, Sydney, Moore. We transcribe the whole title-page of this excellent little volume, as conveying the best account that can be given of its origin and purpose. A manual of geography was wanted for the Schools of New South Wales, and the Surveyor General of that colony was applied to to supply the want. Most of our readers are aware that Sir Thomas Mitchell has acquired a distinguished repu tation by enterprises and researches very different from the composition of School Hooks. Yet, we must say, that in pre paring the present excellent manual he has performed a service of which it would be difficult to overstate the usefulness. In a new and maritime colony geography is one of the most essent...
A DIADEM FOR THE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 July 1851
A DIADEM FOR THE QUEEN. The idea of presenting our Gracious Sove reign with a 'Diadem' made of the ' Virgin Gold' of Australia is excellent 10 nnnnention. We have no doubt but the ' Colonists' at large would feel both pride and pleasure in subscribing for such an ap propriate testimonial of their dutiful and loyal attachment to their August Monarch, were it not for the obvious incongruity of presenting a Grown of Gold to the Queen at the very time that her Majesty's Piincl' pal Secretary of State for the Colonies was exerting all his ingenuity '? how' he might best fasten tbe Iron and degrading Chains of « Convictism' around the necks ami heels of her Majesty's faithful subjects m th« .Australian Colonies! .This considera tion is likely, for the present at least, to retard the execution of a noble and praise worthy design.
