MINERS PROTECTION SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 September 1855

MINERS PROTKCTION SOCIETY. A pultlic meeting of this body was hold in Pall Mall, on Saturday last, but in consequence of the deteutiou of tlie conveners of the meeting in the Local Court it did not take place till a late hour, and the attendance was very small. Tlie chair was occupied by Mr. Denovan. The Chairman, Messrs. Benson, Mackenzie, Jones, Foley, and the Secretary of the Maryborough Protection Society, successively addressed the meeting, enforcing tho objects of the Association. Mr. Donovan made eomo severe comments upon the aristocratic classes in Europe, expressing his opinion that they owed their security to three millions of armed men nt their disposal. He snid that the diggers of Australia were amongst the most intelligent of the working classes, <utd that the diggings were public property, and he hoped the diggers would maintain their right to tliein by every legal means.—Mr. Benson, after saying a few words, read the rules of tho society, which he proposed ...

CHAIRMANSHIP OF THE LOCAL COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 September 1855

CHAIRMANSHIP OF THE LOCAL COURT. It will have been noticed by our reports of the proceedings of the Local Court that the chairman, Mr. Panton, has on several occa sions been absent from his post, and that in consequence no meetings have taken place on these occasions. We understand that this absence has been owing to his unavoidable attendance to his duties as Warden in the extensive district in which be has authority. Waranga, or the Goulburn diggings, one of the gold fields included in this district are much too far distant to allow of a Warden to attend to their requirements, and at the same time to attend to his duties as chairman of the Local Court twioe a-week. Mr. Panton is a very active public officer, but he does not possess the faculty of ubiquity, and therefore when duty calls him to Waranga, we must mourn him absent at Sandhurst, and grievous though the deprivation may be, ' we cannot expect to have a meeting of the Local Court on such occasions. It will have been observ...

MOUNT BLACKWOOD. (From a Correspondent.) Sept. 20, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 September 1855

MOUNT BLACKWOOD. (From a Correspondent.) Sept. 20, 1855. Mount Blackwood, in my opinion, has been greatly over-rated, and out of the 13 or 14,000 persons now here, there are very many who bitterly regret ever having come to the place. The quantity of water renders the efforts of those who are sinking holes almost nugatory, inasmuch as they are nearly unable, from the cause I have mentioned, to work their claims. This state of things must necessarily produce a considerable amount   of poverty, and I am sorry to say there are many here who are in a truly miserable condition, being almost starving. These diggings are very extensive, there being along the creek, alone, miners at work for the distance of 17 miles. Besides those who are digging at the creek, and in the various gullies branching out of it, there is a large population at the quartz reefs, the prin- cipal of which are Simmons's Reef, and the Yankee Reef, the former being situated about two miles from Golden Poin...

TRANSLATIONS OF ABORIGINAL POESY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 September 1855

TRANSLATIONS OF ABORIGINAL POESY. From the songs of the Carobra we glean the original idea of the superannuing principle or extinguishing agency which is now hurrying these tribes into utter extinction; and it is singular that the idea closely re-   sembles the opinions of the Red Indians of America on the same subject. The white man dropped from the sun bright sky, For he envied the blackfellow's land, With greed and revenge in his restless eye,   And disease and death in his hand. And he grasped the forest, and he seized the   strand, And claimed the blue mountains high; And he scours the bush with a ruthless band, 'Till its denizens trembling fly— And his pigs and his cattle pollute the land 'Till it stinks, and the blackfellows die.   The idea of "jumping up with white man" after death, which the aborigines entertain, is by no means a new one, as many people suppose; it is merely the current of an earlier belief diverted into a...

MARYBOBOUGH WEEKLY SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 September 1855

MARYBOROUGH WEEKLY SUMMARY. The trade this week has been similar to that of   past weeks, chiefly loading goods for the new rush at Fiery Creek, where there is still an increasing demand for bread stuffs, wines and spirits, particularly brandy. The carriage, however, is so high, owing to the all but impassable state of the roads between Burnt Creek and   the new rush, that we have known £35 per ton asked at   the lowest figure for carriage, nor is this state of things likely to soon alter, for the rain is pouring down in tor- rents as we are writing. The trade may therefore in some measure be diverted from Maryborough to Ballarat for supplying the markets at Fiery Creek. But it is a   question with well-informed parties how long the de- mand for supplies may continue at the new gold-field, as some who were taking down their tents at the Alma, on hearing that several were leaving the rush and on their way back, changed their minds, ...

MOUNT ALEXANDER DIGGINGS. (From the Mail.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 26 September 1855

MOUNT ALEXANDER DIGGINGS. (From the Mail.) CASTLEMAINE. — Chinese population, 7300. New ground has been opened during the last week in gullies   branching off to the eastward of Moonlight Flat ; also on the east side of Specimen Gully several parties have done well. A new reef has just been opened, called Smith's Reef, about two miles and a half east of Long Gully, Tarran- gower ; it is expected to turn out very rich. The late floods have washed away several dams, and done other damage. Complaints are rife from the want of bridge communication at Guildford, across the Loddon, it   being the high road to Mount Franklyn and Bal- larat. MOUNT FRANKLYN.— Population, 2500. Several small creeks are being worked successfully. Sailors' Flat has also attracted several during the past week. The ground in front of the camp still continues to turn out satisfac- torily.

LABOR AND CAPITAL. (From the 'Ago.') [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 29 September 1855

LABOR AND CAPITAL. (From the 'Ago.') When tlio' question of quartz-mining in re latiou to capital was under iuvestigniwn by Mr. West^arth's Commission sf Inquiry, n practical solution of the problem was ofterod by sorno of the miners, which seamed to have some weiglit with the Commissioners, and which hns sinco been regarded by tnnuv others as furni ' vie; a settlement of tho diiluiulty. . It t . V > . / simply amounted to a suggestion that the two processes of mining and crushing should form separate branches of industry, nnd bear the same relation to each other as farming bears, to corn-grinding, or cotton growing to cotton spinning. The miners, it was suggested, could go on as usual, marking off their claims, and preparing their quartz for the machine ; whilo the machinists would be relieved from all anxiety about getting sufficiency of material by contracting with the wording miners to crush for them on term3 mutually advan tageous. The suggestion was simple, and apparently c...

FRESH DISTURBANCES ON THE GOLD FIELDS! [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 29 September 1855

FRESH DISTURBANCES ON THE GOLD FIELDS! By the following extract from the 'Argus,' it will be seen that rumours had been current in Melbourne of aome disturbances at Clunes Diggings.—The annexed communications from the Creswick Creek Correspondent of the Star gives some insight into the matter. Fresh Disturbanchs near Bat,lA\Rat.— The citizens of Melbourne were yesterday afternoon thrown into a state of considerable alarm and excitement, by a report becoming current to the effect that another serious riot had occurred at Ballaarat. The cause of the sudden effervescence was, its having become known that a mounted trooper had arrived from Ballaarat, and that in the course of the forenoon the police authorities Lad received orders to at onco forward a hundred men to that place. Of course, the hundred tougues of rumor were let loose on the occasion, and as the Ballaarat mail did not bring down any further news, we presume that the number of editions through which the story lias run since...

THE OVENS. GOLDFLELDS OF THE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 29 September 1855

THE OVENS. GOLDFIfc'LDS OF THE DISTRICT. TheWoolshed claims are once more in work ing order, aud the damage done by the late flood has, in most instances, been repaired, fllany parties are severe sufferers; and some few who have only recently struck the gold, are unable to right themselves without pecuniary assistance. It is astonishing how soon the water is got under when tTie pumps of the various claims are working simultaneously, and we we're agreeably surprised to note the change which a few days industry had wrought. The sides of many of the claims have fallen awav. square excavations have been transformed into round basins, and the creek has lost that smart business-like appearance which the even cut tings of practised hands had given it. Some additional trouble and expense have been im posed upon the claimholdcrs by ihe floods, but fortunately the gold is " all there," and a few weeks of steady work and fuir weather will put their owners iuto good spirits again.

PLURALITY OF CLAIMS. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 29 September 1855

PLURALITY OF CLAIMS. (From a Correspondent.) On referring lately to the report of the Gold fields Commission of Inquiry, we were struck with the great similarity of opinion on many important questions, some of which are pecu liarly applicable to the present state of things in this district—to those which we hold our selves. The following paragraph, for instance, is one to which we most cordially subscribe— " As regards the present, and perhaps the future also, the Com mission are impressed that successful gold mining associations will be, almost without exception, restricted to the practical and working miner, or the miner in conjunction with the Colonial capitalist." That our alluvial diggings were opened and developed by tbe practical and working miner, and that few, if any companies, not formed of such persons, have been successful, or mate rially contributed to the well-being of tbe gold fields, there can be little doubt. Up to the pre sent moment, tbe same remarks apply equally...
