Expedition up, the Gallinas.— A letter of the 4th Dec. from the Hound, 8, Com mander Patten, senior officer at Sierra' Leone, savs—' We have just returned from an expedition under Commander Patten, up the river Gallinas, where we burnt down to the ground two large towns belonging to ?the two great chiefs there, for not delivering up the murderer of Mr. Barker, -the Engl ish authority at Gallinas. The boats of the Hound and Prometheus, 6, . steam-sloop,,. Commander Foote, proceeded six miles up a riVer and burnt Prince Manna's town to the ground, giving the women and children time to be off. The following day they -proceeded nine miles up another river, and burnt Prince Roger's town, all barricaded towns. Cap..

The Diggings. OPHIR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 19 July 1851

®fa Stagings. OPHIR. The flooding of the Summerhill Creek lias been a serious obstacle to the Ophir miners, and with the prospect of continued rain there appears to be no probability of a speedy change. The Canoblas. whence the sources of the creek are fed, have lately been covered with snow, from which, indepen dently of the ram, a considerable supply of water may be antici pated. Some parties have been compelled to leave their ground in consequence of the encroachment of the floods. A number of cradles have rocked their way down the creek, and it is more than pro bable that until the wet weather subsides, mining operations will proceed rather languidly. Several parties have been very successful, notwithstanding all these disad vantages. Mr. Samuels, who is purchasing largely at these dig gings, broughta beautiful specimen of gold to Bathurst. a few days ago, weighing eight ounces ; but when we^ reckon gold by the hundred weight, this will excite little sur prise. One of a return p...

AMERICA'S DARK SIDE. [?] OF CARLISLE'S LECTURE AT LEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 19 July 1851

AMERICA'S DARK SIDE. OF C\RMSLU'S LECTURE AT LBEO3.

To this source probably in some measure be traced emarkable similarity in the manners, rtment, conversation, and tone of feel which has so generally struck travel ftom abroad in American society. Who has seen, can never forget the slow and ncholy silence of the couples who walk in-arm to the tables of the great hotels, Ihe unsocial groups who gather round rreasy meals of the steam-boats, lap u...

A HUNDRED WEIGHT OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 19 July 1851

A HUNDRED WEIGHT OF   GOLD.   Bathurst ismad again. The delirium of golden fever has returned with increased intensity. Men meet together, stare stupidly   at each other, talk incoherent nonsense, and   wonder what will happen next. Everybody has a hundred times seen a hundred weight of flour, a hundred weight of sugar or potatoes, is an every- day fact, but a hundred weight of gold is a phrase scarcely known in the English language. It is be- yond the range of our ordinary ideas — a sort of physical incomprehensibility — but that it is a material existence, our own eyes bore witness on Monday last. Mr. Suttor, a few days previously, threw out a few misty hints about the possibility of a single individual digging Four Thou-   sand Pounds' worth of gold in one day, but no one believed him serious. It was thought that he was doing a little harmless puffing for his own district and the Turon dig- gings! On Sunday it began...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 23 July 1851

HomI Intelligence. Firb Annihilator. — For some years past Mr. Phillips's clRver= invention of a simple!; piece of machinery for the rapid extinguishing of fires, has occupied the attention of the scientific world. With this instrument, Mr. Phillips has both asserted and proved that as great an effect could be produced as from several fire engines worked by many men. The ' London Times,' of January 8th, describes a fresh trif 1 which has been made to test the value of the machine. The case b thus described : ? The hull of an old vessel, 150 tons burthen, was filled with sugar hogsheads, tar and turpentine barrels, saltpetre bags, and other highly combustible mate rials. This inflammable mass having been ignited, the hatches were kept closed for a short time, and on the removal of them the whole blazed up. with extraordinary violence. When the flames had acquired a high degree of intensity, the annihilator was brought into action, and in an incredible short space — not more than a fe...

AND MINIS G JOURNAL. WEDNESDAY, JULY 23. 1851. THE COMING ELECTION'. It is now high time for the Electors of the Western Boroughs, and of the County of Batburst, to consider whether they shall be represented or not in the new Legislature, and if the question be decided affirmatively, who are to represent them ? The Gold Discovery ha? hitherto been the standing excuse for the neglect of every social and public duty, but ths period is fast approach ing when it will be no longer available. Instead of a relaxation of our efforts to secure an efficient representation being reckoned amongst the consequences of that discovery, it ought to act as a powerful sti * nonlant upon those whose property, whose ' interests, family connections and homes, are located in this district. Every Toter ought to ask himself the question, and a more im portant one he cannot ask — who is the most fitting maa to represent him, his wishes, interests, and political sentiments, honestly, efficiently, and fearless...
