M'IVOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 31 July 1856

I M'IVOR. j Thc number of diggers at the Race course is gradually increasing, many of them arc doing a good stroke ; but I am sorry to say that many of the claims have turned out shicers. The unfortunate diggers there have determined to give the place a full and fair trial. Those who arc working at thc quartz reef arc going a-head steadily, and expect to be well-remunerated for their time and labor, when thc long-wished for crushing machine is completed. It is ru mored that a company will bc formed for thc purpose of properly working the flat between thc camp and the creek, when thc weather is finer ; that is in fact, a si/ie qua non. The roads arc still in a bad state, and thc people of M'Ivor have to attribute to that thc disappointment that occurred last night. The far-famed wizard Jacobs arrived herc on Satur ! day last, and expected to be fully prepared to " astonish the natives," but ho was also disap pointed, as the waggon on which his apparatus, &c, were to bc convey...

There is j no protection on the place, save the occasional j appearance of a policeman, which, except that J ? is a proof that there are such animals as police ;. men in the Wellington District, is of the least } possible service to the diggers.

LINTON'S, WARDY YALLOCK. (From our own Correspondent.) July 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 31 July 1856

I LINTON'S, WARDY YALLOCK j I (From our own Correspondent.) I * Julv29. I hare nothing of importance to communi cate from this gold-field ; thc miners in general seem to be contented and doing well. The shallow sinking at Bloomer's Bill yields largely and splendid nuggets are of frequent occur rence. Another spot has been opened on the hill di viding Bloomer's from Nuggety Gully. The sinking is about 23 feet, and is yielding some 3 dwts. to the tub-I think it will be remuner ative. Various new spots upon the Hard Hills have been rushed, and the general opinion is that good ground will be discovered in that neighbourhood. Two fresh parties have arrived upon the Black Lead with the intention of erecting whims ; all the parties upon that lead feel con fident of success. I expect that in a short time we shall have a monster rush to this quarter, and then our rich hills and gullies, which only want population to work them, will become famous in mining annal-;. Springdallah is now quite a...

There is no doubt whatever thct many pay able veins of quartz exist in the neighbourhood more than have as yet been discovered, and as every week seems to widen the field of enterprise gradually opening around us, we may naturally expect that this gold-field will soon attract towards itself a much larger 6hare of public attention than it has hitherto enjoyed.

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 31 July 1856

THE Fixum MILLS.-Thc extreme wetness of the weathef which has prevailed since the commencement of winter has seriously interfered j with bunding operations, ana in many instances j has entirely put a stop to them. ' The pro prietors and contractors of the flour mills at the Swamp, however, though no doubt seriously in convenienced by the almost impassable state of the roads, and the consequent high price of all building materials, have been pushing on their works, and We have every reason to believe that both mills wül be in full working order before the next crop is ready. Messrs lia« kin & Co., the contractors for the erection of Messrs. McPhillimy & Baird's large stone building, are using every effort to have their contract com plete by the end of October, and the proprie tors are determined to spare no outlay to make their mill one of the best and most complete in the colony ; they have sent to England for the machinery, which is being made to order, will contain...

THE STAR. THURSDAY, 31ST JULY, 1856. THE FRONTAGE QUESTION SOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 31 July 1856

THE STAR. THURSDAY, 31ST JULY, 1856. THE FRONTAGE QUESTION SOLVED. THE folly of refusing a fair and mo derate concession, in the hope of ob- ? tabling an extravagant one, has sel dom been, more strikingly exemplified than in the endeavors which have been made to obtain the sale of the Main-road frontages. In the Survey or-General's reply to Mr Hunitrray's queries, as given in a letter of the latter gentleman, to Mr. Oliver, under date the 22nd of March, the Surveyor General stated-The sale would take place in about two months' time. That a fair valuation would be allowed for the buildings upon any allotment, but that he did not think it right to allow anything for goodwill in business, as there would be exorbitant claims set up These terms of the Surveyor-Gene ral were, along with other matters connected with the Frontage question, published in the Star of the 25th March. Believing them to be a fair arrangement between the Govern ment and the residents on the Main road, we urged the...

ANDERSON'S CREEK DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 31 July 1856

ANDERSON'S CREEK DIGGINGS. TITO severe accidents occurred last week, one to a rainer named M'Alnm, on Masterton's Beef, who was working in his shaft when a blast went off unexpecfcedlv as he was standing over it, and scvcrlv injured* him, though not fa tally so. The other occurred on the Fourth BUl to a man named Sugars, who was at work in the reef, when about twenty tons of a bank slipped in, and nearly buried hun, but he is now in a fair way of recovery. Thc mining intelligence is of the most cheer ing character. I yesterday visited the reefs, and found that the miners were in good spirits and working diligently; each of the reefs con tinues to yield as well this week as formerly. X believe that the average yield will be. twenty ounces to the ton, and from several claims there will be from forty to fifty ounces. Dransficld, Downing & Co. have selected the site fer their machine on the bank of the river near Masterton's Beef. Men are engaged to clear and fence, put up huts,...

AMHERST, DAISY HILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 31 July 1856

AMHERST, DAISY HILL.     The new township is rapidly progressing. Several large and handsome stores and other buildings have been erected in High-street, and I hear of others in course cf erection. I under stand also that the contract for the erection of a church has been taken. This, when finished, will supply a long-desired want. A land sale takes place this day, and I am informed that smart competition is expected for some of the lots. The state of the roads is very bad; High   street being in most places ancle deep in mud. Really it is too bad for the Government to ob-   tain liigh prices for the laud sold in these town ships, and do literally nothing for the formation of streets and roads. It is a pity there is none of our township here who will make a stir about these matters, and endeavour to have them put to rights. Great complaints have for a long time past been made about the present situa- tion of the Camp, which is plac...

QUARTZ REEF, TOWNSHIP BALLARAT. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 31 July 1856

QUARTZ REEF, TOWNSHIP BALLARAT.   (To the Editor of the Star.)   Sir,-This reef, although new, appears doomed to inaction through the want of ma ehinery to crush and amalgamate the quartz. It has been opened about seven months, and many of the miners have worked np to this period ; they have large quantities of quartz stacked, with the hope that efficient machinery would have been erected, and in full working order, long ere this, which would have given them good returns for their labor and expenses. Tons of excellent specimens and hundreds of tons of rich quartz are ready for crushing; but ; with the exception of a few pounds broken by hand, and washed in a tin dish^ merely for ex periment, nothing is as yet done to cheer the miners to future exertions. The above experi ments, and washing soijae loose stuff, are cer tainly very interesting ; besides previous trials, those on New Tear's Day, 1856, were highly satisfactory, as the following results will shew...

GEELONG COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. 2nd August, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 5 August 1856

GEELONG COMMERCIAL INTELLI GENCE. 2nd August, 1856. Thc most noticeable feature in the ?week has been the sudden change in the flour market, consequent ^chiefly on the report brought hither bv tke Ingeborg, from St. Antonio, Chili. The news from America via England, which was re ceived by the mail ship Lightning, showed that prices there were ruling so high in thc latter .end of March as to render exportation to these colonies on a large scale very improbable ; but no reference was made to thc destruction of any portion of the harvest by the stormy weather, and on this part of the story some doubt has been thrown by the captain of the Kora Creina, who states that the crops were mostly harvested in Februarv, and were considered more than usually abundant." Fortunately our supplv of bread docs not new rest GU South American shipments, and the present remunerative rates will perhaps induce holders of wheat and flour iu Van Dicmen's Land speedily to forward of their abundance te us; and...

For some weeks pastjnany-tongued rumor has been busy reporting candi dates of all sorts-likely and unlikely -probable and possible ; as yet how ever, but two gentlemen have publicly notified their intentions of soliciting the most sweet voices of the electors of North Grant and North Grenville. These gentlemen are Messrs. Humffray and Lalor, our present Members of Council. The former gentleman affects Grant, the latter patronises Grenville. At present we have to do with the candidate for North Grant, as being first in the field.
