Original Correspondence. Snake Valley, January 15th, 1855. the Editor of the Ovens and Murray Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

Original Correspondence. Snake Valley, January 15th, 1855. the Editor of the Ovens and Murray Advertiser. Snt,-The first issue of your paper was I much complimented; the second, I regret j to state, savoured so much of the Beech I worth officialism, that I have reason to fear it will greatly impede our progress in get ting another public meeting to petition the Governor for our rights; and requesting also that the Commission of Inquiry be sent up here. I believe every man possessed of common sense who has read in your last issue the paragraph referring to the Snake Valley petition, can view your paper in no other light than with the greatest mistrust. Although you made very little alteration, you made it read well (" for the Govern ment side") by stating that the Governor " could not," instead of " has not" given Mr. Weston authority, &c.. &c. Many conjecture already that Mr. Turner is the real editor of the paper. All those who were present ut the public meeting not...

WANGARATTA. Wangaratta, 18th January, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

WANGARATTA. (FKOM OUK OWN COLTUKSI'ONDKNT. Waugaratta, 18th January, 1855. A man who gave his name as William Henry Vernon, but whose proper cognomen, I understand, is Macnamara, was arrested here yesterday by the police on a charge of attempting to defraud lMr. William Clarke, the proprietor of the Hope Inn, by uttering two spurious Bills of Exchange, one for £20 and the other for £16, and both purporting to be drawn in London on the Union Bank of Australasia. The prisoner, who is a notoriously bad character, put up at Mr. Clarke's on Tuesday afternoon, and through some plaueable statements contrived to run up a score to the amount of £2 10s. Having then retired to bed, and enjoyed the biessings of " Nature's sweet restorer, balmy sleep," he got up about 8 o'clock the next morning, and regaled himself with a substantial breakfast, for the payment of which, together with the £2 10s. before alluded to, he presented " mine host, " with either of the two bills.

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

FRANCE. -i A pleasanter aspect of affairs greets us in France. Here a great nation is exulting-in its alliance with England in the cause of justice, and generously putting forth all its energies to sustain the noble enterprise upon which it has embarked. All honor to our valiant allies in this great and necessary war ! The union is strength to us both, and will be productive in the end of mutual advantages and a common glory. Every means that can be adopted for cementing this union, arid maturing it into a popular sentiment at both sides of the channel, is hailed by all classes in this country with enthusiasm ; and the report, which has lately assumed a semi-official character, of the contemplated visit of the Emperor and Empress of the French, has been received with universal satisfaction. The time when this visit is to take place has not yet trans pired ; but it is generally believed that it is not far distant. The Imperial guests, according to the current rumour, are to be^ recei...

Extracts from the English Journals. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

Extracts from the English Journals. RUSSIAN PHIZES.-Last week another sale of Russian prizes took place at Lloyd's. The vessels put up were the Abo, 600 tons, prize to Her Majesty's ship Tribune, Captain, the Hon. S. T. Carnegie. The vessel was knocked down at £2060, making, -with the sum realised by her cargo, £509, a total of £'2029, to be shared by the Tribune. The Argestre, so gallantly cut out of Ekness by the Ar rogant and Hecla, 430 tons, fell at £1940; when taken she had 450 tons of salt on board, which sold for £397, making a total to be shared among the captors of £2337. The congress of American ministers, held lately at Ostend, with the object of adopting in future a common action (it is said) with respect to the governments or Europe, has terminated its sittings, after having addressed a joint report of its pro ceedings to the Government of the United States.

Local and Domestic. . ^J|RTHER REDUCTIONS.-Itis rumoured 'that" Mr. Merrick the Assistant Civil Commissary has received an intimation that his services are shortly to be dis pensed with. We are not at all surprised at this, for since the government have " ceased to issue rations to its officers, the duties of a Commissary must be compara tively like ' Othello's occupation-gone'.' Mr. Merrick has throughout his official career performed his duties in a zealous and upright manner, and we sincerely trust that the government will be able to find some other post for so honest a servant.

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

CHINA. THE REBELLION.-As far as we can see, this affair is fast verging to a conclu sion as rebellion ; and, unless some extra erdinary and sudden resuscitation takes place, we may look for its total suppressiou ere long. When the land will have peace from the bands of brigands this serious outbreak has been the fertile means of spreading over the country is an inference more difficult to draw. The latest news are, that the imperialists have retaken Han-kow, Hang-yang. and Woo chang. It is pointed out to us by a friend, that the" Peking Gazette, in mentioning the capture of Han-kow, states that " the people joined }he troops and assisted them in cutting off the rebels," which assertion has, it is said, not been made in any previous Gazette.;?

" This is true liberty, when t free-born men, having to advise the public, may speak free."-Milt, trans. Eury. SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 1855. OUR PROSPECTS AS A MINING COMMUNITY.

PRIDE AND HUMILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

PRIDE AND HUMILITY. A Poet in his rambles once A daffodil espied. Next to a violet which grew, With meekness by its side: The daffodil, with haughty looks, Her neighbour seemed to view ; Who pained to find herself despised, Wept tears of morning dew. He gazed upon the touching scene, Unwilling to depart; Then gently culled the humble flower, And placed it near his heart. " 'Tis thus," he cried, " that those jos Of modesty and grace, [sessed In hearts where tender passions reign Should fill the highest place ; Yet oft we see in human life Proud daffodils are prized, While meek retiring violets Are slighted and despised."

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

EDUCATION. THE great moralist has said, " I rain up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from itand of the truth of this axiom every-day expe rience convinces us. The education and training of an em bryo generation, as a subject for study, is of far too great and immediate importance to be treated lightly. It is a matter of the gravest moment j and concerning, as it does, the interest alike of the meanest and most noble of God's creatures, demands the earnest consideration of all. It is a fact deeply to be regretted, that, throughout this colony, since the discovery ' of gold, and the consequent unsettled state of society, the education of young-children ^-Jjas been lamentably neglected . and that on "lu fields iri particular, until a very recent period, it has been altogether overlooked. When we consider that the prosperity and intelligence of a future community depends, mainly, on the nature of the in struction bestowed upon those who are to form ...

PREFATORY REMARKS. London, November 9, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

PREFATORY REMARKS. (PBOM QUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) London, November 9, 1854. The occurrences of the past three weeks have been of the highest interest, but Se baBtopol is not yet taken. The difficulties are extreme, but there is full confidence they will be surmounted, To witness the ex citement here now, you would fancy us much more a nation of warriors than a na tion of shopkeepers, and resolved, appa rently, to stint neither blood nor treasure in carrying out our objects. We are not a little sensitive, too. Louis Napoleon, in addressing a letter of condolence to Madame de St. Arnaud; whose husband died of his complaint and cholera combined, lauded him as having pursued his plans in despite of " timid, counsels, and has since had to explain that he did not allude to the Eng lish generals, but merely to some differ ences in the French Council of War. Some thought Admiral Dundas was pointed at; but Prince Napoleon seerns to be impugned, although he fought bravely, as be is said to hav...
