OUR ENEMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 April 1851
OUR ENEMIES. THAT very delightful writer, Sir F. 13. Head-the famous " Old man eloquent," who discourses so pleasantly respecting Nassau Brunnens, Canadian Politics, the scenery of the Pampas, English Railways, Tubular Bridges, and other interesting matters-has lately essayed a publication on the " Defenceless state of England," The clever litterateur joins the " Cry" so .continuously kept up by the Napiers and others, and carries the 'dread of an im- pending Fronch invasion into the most tranquil and retired of English house- holds. The periodical pnnic is thus sus- tained ; and the elderly ladies of both boxes in England aro kept in a perpetual state of healthy but unpleasant excite- ment. The intervals of cessation from fresh nccounts nf Primley murders and llcgent's-Park burglaries, are thus filled up with awful anticipations of the moment when a lunidred-and-fifty-thousand French- men in full accoutrements, shall come over from Cherbourg in war-steamers ; land i quietly at Brig...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. GOLD MINES IN NEW SOUTH WALES. To the Editor of the Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 April 1851
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. GOLD MINES IN NEAV SOUTH AVALES. To the Editor of the Empire. SIR-When in California I was so struck with the similarity of the auriferous formation I in- spected, to what I had seen in New South Wales, that I felt perfectly assured gold would be found in this Colony, in those parts where the geological features corresponded. The subject formed matter for conversation when at the mines. My companions all agreed with my views, and so perfectly satisfied were we on the subject that we determined as soon as possible after our return to New South Wales, to commence a &nbsp; diligent search for the precious metal. It gives me the greatest pleasure to be ena- bled to inform you that we were not mistaken in the opinion wo had formed. A Gold Field has been discovered extending over a tract of country of about 300 miles in length. The Gold resembles that of California in every respect ex- ternally, and appears equally pure. I have seen the specimens which hav...
INTERIOR. A TRIP TO THE BELUBULA MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 4 April 1851
INTERIOR. A TRIP TO THE BELUBULA MINE. Shortly after sunset, at the hour known " ayant the Tweed," as the "gloaming," a dark object looming gigantically in the distance, and progress- ing slowly but laboriously along the rugged bed of the Stoney Creek, Carcoar, was observed by a couple of gents just returned from the races. The younger days of one of the two had been spent in a land whore stories of elfins, ghosts, and banshees form no inconsiderable portion of the early mental tutoring of the young, and the subsequent effects of a liberal education and considerable travel, had not been sufficient to eradicate the impressions stamped upon his early youth, as, listening over the expiring embers of a turf fire, he had caught in breathless silence, the every word of the toothless beldame whilst relating tale after tale of horror and wonderment. His companion, a man of hard facts, great incredulity, and little faith in anything to which he could not apply the test of his senses, looked ...
