Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 24 February 1855

Summary of Mining Intelligence. TIIE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. STRING CRHKIC.-There lias been a slight decrease of population at the 'New Rush.' The excitement of the racing week being over, and the General Sessions having" ter minated, matters arc again subsiding into their usual aspect in the township. Mining operations in other localities of this gold field arc being carried on much in the same style, and with equal success, as re ported in the previous week. SNAKE VAI.LKY.-There has been a slight increase in the population, arising from parties who have returned from prospecting, and also some miners from Sandy Creek ; which, though deserted at present, will again be worked to consider able advantage by some of the 'old hands' as soon as they can obtain a sufficient supply of water for sluicing purposes. Our own correspondent writes:-Now that the races are fairly over, the miners have set to work with their usual spirit. On the hill at the back of the Star Hotel, where ...

Local and Domestic. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 24 February 1855

Local and Domestic. Cnuncti OF ENGLAND.-We remark with much pleasure that there is now a proba bility of our having the privilege of regular Church of England worship on this town ship. It has for some time been a matter of consideraale surprise to us and other members of the Church of England that, as yet, no clergyman should have been ap pointed for this district. Our readers will remember that some time since the subject was mooted, and a subscription list opened for the erection of a church, and we have been at a loss to understand why the matter should have been dropped without any fur ther steps being taken. It is hardly neces sary to draw the attention of our fellow townsmen and the diggers on the various creeks, to the importance of providing for regular Church of England worship, and to the duty that rests with them individually as heads of families, and members of the com munity, of exerting themselves to the ut most in assisting to obtain this desirable end. The Wesleyans...

STATISTICS OF THE GOLD FIELDS OF VICTORIA, For the Year, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 24 February 1855

STATISTICS OF THE GOLD FIELDS OF VICTORIA, FOR THE YEAH, 1S54. (From the Mount Alexander Mail.) In presenting his Third Annual Statis tical Account of the Produce of the Gold Fields of Victoria, Mr. Klnill thus refers to the changes which have occnrred in the gold trade during the past year : 1st-The banks in becoming traders in gold dust as well as bankers on the gold field, have interfered with the storekeepers, and to a great extent monopolized a very remunerative branch of their trade. The deprivation of this lucrative branch of business, which was initiated and ma tured by the storekeeper, has been pro ductive of the most disastrous results to him and his constituents. It is but justice to state that these remarks apply only to three out of our seven banking establish ments in Melbourne, who seem determined to persevere in a course hitherto unpro fitable to themselves, and certainly dis tasteful to the mercantile community at large. "2nd-The security with which the large amount...

WANGARATTA. February 22, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 24 February 1855

WANGARATTA. (FROM OCll CHV.V COUai'.SPON'DKNT). February 22, ] 85;"). Another match was contested this day on the Warigaratta course for ;£I00, be tween 'Stick to him Jemmy' and ' TaiFey.' It was won by the former without any trouble, ' Ta (Fey' having bolted off the course each event. The result of this race rather astonished the supporters of ' TafFey,' as they wanted to hang a mirror on the back of his rider in order that . Jemmy' might admire his physiognomy in the dis tance. Some of the racing fraternity, how ever, seem yet to have a little confidence in ' TalFey,' because, immediately after the first race, Messrs. Rogers and Cusack pur- ? chased him for and matched hini j against Mr. Ileid's grey horse, ' Badger,' ; for a gold watch, which was won by the i latter; but, notwithstanding that he lost ; these two races, the owners now propose to j back him against f Stick to him Jemmy,' j for £50 or £100 for one mile, one mile and j a half, or two miles, both horses to carry j Hom...

REPRESENTATION OF THE GOLD FIELDS. Now that the subject of Gold Fields representation has been once fairly mooted, and some de cided steps on the part of our Bendigo friends actually taken -unsuccessful altho' they have proved-io obtain for the digging community proper legislative re presentation, it would be unwise of us to allow i he matter to drop to the ground without an effort to sustain it. How many and injurious proofs have we already had of the utter incapability of the Council and Executive to legislate on subjects connected with the management of the Gold Fields, of which they are in a great measure practically ignorant, and to frame laws for the government of a body of men of whose habits, feelings, and opinions they know compara tively nothing, except by hear say !

THE MARKETS. Sales during the past week have not been quite so brisk as could be wished. Prices, ho wever, remain pretty much at the same figures stated in our last quotations. We are unavoidably compelled to omit the "Prices Current' this week, owing to a press of matter consequent upon the ' State Trials.' The horse and cattle market has been but indifferently supplied, the demand for ordinary hacks and draught horses having been far greater than usual. Working bullocks would obtain good sales. 1 he labour market is pretty well supplied : first-rate cooks and female domestics are at a premium.
