CALIFORNIA MINES AND MINING. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 23 July 1851

CALIFORNIA. MINES AND MINING. The following communication is not only from a gentleman engaged in the mines, but one who was born and bred in a mi* ning country, Hungary. Count Wass, the writer, is one of the very best scientific and practical miners in California, and his opinions are consequently worthy of par ticular attention. To the Editors of the Alta California. Mariposa, Feb. 14, 1851. Gentlemen,— In ray first letter I tried to give some probable geological reasons about the rich gold deposits in the so-called placers, and the more I make, observations about their origin, I am more and more I confirmed in the opinion that they are the j results of one or more eraptions by which j not only gold, but some other metals also, j especially a large quantity of iron, -was thrown out and spread over the gold re gion. Every piece of go'd in the diggings has the shape of a drop, as if flattened by rolling, by pressure, or other circumstances. Still it wears the indication of a state o...

THE FIRST FIFTY YEARS OF THIS CENTURY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 23 July 1851

THE FIRST FIFTY YEARS OF THIS CENTURY. CFromthe Economist. Not only has that period been rich beyond nearly all others in political events of thril ling interest and mighty moment, but in changes and incidents of moral and social significance it has had no parallel since the Christian era. It has witnessed the most tremendous war and the most enduring peace which we have known for centuries. It has beheld the splendid career and sad retributive reverses of the greatest con queror, scourge, and upsetter of old arrange .raeuts since the days of Gengis-Khan, A'ttiia, or Charlemagne. It has witnessed a leap forward in all the elements of material well being, such as neither scientific vision nor poetic fancy eveg pictured; It is not too I much to say that, in wealth, in the arts of life, in the discoveries of science and their application to the comfort, the health, the safety, and the capabilities ot man, in pub' lie and private morality, in the diffusion, if not in the advancement, of...

The Diggins. MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 23 July 1851

The Diggings. MINING INTELLIGENCE. Several parties have passed through the town during the last few days on their way from Ophir to the Turon, having been driven from the former place by the floods. None of them complained of ill luck whilst at Ophir, and two of the parties had been very fortunate, earning upwards of £1 a day each man after paying all expenses. They had been at work among heavy rocks, and appeared very much fagged. {Amongst them were two very intelligent men, who declared as the result of their observation that scores were not earning more than their rations. There were some very indus trious and persevering men amongst the un fortunate, but they had selected unprofitable ground and therefore failed. In some cases this was unavoidable as many of the bars which had proved very lucrative could not be worked on account of the water. Many were persevering under very great disad vantages, having to employ themselves during a considerable portion of the day in baling the ...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 26 July 1851

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) The whole civilized world will receive with astonishment the intelligence with which the colonial press teams.-thaU mass of gold weighing upwards of 100 (one hundred) pounds was disembowelled with the least L«ihl« labour, by an ignorant aboriginal, without mechanical assistance, or imple ment of any kind, excepting his tomahawk. The effect upon the British public-' will be an immediate rush of emigrants of all-graces for the port of Sydney. Who can listen tamely to such information ; a country ca pable of. producing every necessary ot life ; a climate ' which cannot be surpassed ; ' abounding in gold.

WAR AGAINST SERMON REPORTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 26 July 1851

WAR AGAINST SERMON REPORTERS. Some of the Puseyite clergy and their sub ordinates, says the Plymouth Journa,l appear disposed to carry matters with a high hand. On Christmas Day a reporter from that paper attended St. Stephen's district church at Devonport, to witness the mode of carry ing out the services there, and also to ob serve the manner in which the church was decorated, the incumbeut being one of the most decided of the Puseyite clergymen, in the neighbourhood. The reporter on that day took out a note-book, and commenced writing the sermon, when a ' thin spare man,' who fills the office of verger and factotum to the establishment, came and directed the attention of the reporter to the minister, and Mr. Proctor then addressed him in very strong language, deprecating the writing of a sermon in church, On Sunday evening last, the same repoiler, accompanied by another who is connected TOith that naner. airain went to St. Stephen's. They arrived there some time after the service...

GYMNASTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 26 July 1851

GYMNAdTlCri. The people of this land of roast beef and plum- pudding hav2 not the slightest idea that, in common with other nations, they labour under the sore -reproach of doing nothing, absolutely nothing for their bodies. But the fact is stated in a Prospectus of Gymnastic Exercise now before us, and, af ter a moment's reflection, we cannot gain say it. We certainly use our bodies ill, we give them foul names, call them clay, &c. ; and then, as vile earthenware vessels, we apply them chiefly to kitchen uses, and do little more with thena than put meat into them ; or else we live in our bodies as men live in tenements, which they have on short leases, and never think of improving the premises, or of adding to their means of accommodating us. ''I shall not live here long,' is the thriftless reply to every sug gestion of wisdom; and then, when the tabernacle yields to time, and becomes un comfortable and disagreeable to inhabit, we thrust any vile doctor's stuff into the bre...

POLICE PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 26 July 1851

. POLICE PAY. Great care was taken when the announce ment of the Gold Discovery was mode, to . - increase the police force of Bathuret, such a step being deemed necessary, ss it was supposed that amongst the throne? of popu lation to thi3 district there would be a con siderable admixture of ths rery worst .characters. The rapid increase in. the price of all' the necessaries of life placed the policeman's pa^r somewhere about starvation ;point, and mnny of the men resigned in con sequence. To ' keep , the force together, a meeting of the ' magistrates v?as convened, and a letter addressed to Government, in which a considerable increase of pay was re ? convmended. The upshot of the whole was a determination to raise the --.y from 2s. 3d. to 4a. 6d. per dav, the advanced rate to commence on the 24th May. The remainder of the force were thus induced to remain, ?preferring moderate hut certain wages to the chances of gold digging. On the 18th 'instant the ' old bands' received their pay ...

English News. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 26 July 1851

Snglislj Ttftfos. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) By late English papers it will be seen that the Russell Ministry was in that state that it was impossible it could continue in office much longer. It is easy to see that there must be a break up, but it is not so easv to tell what will be the result. The Protectionist press are endeavouring to pave the way for Lord Stanley, but there does not appear to have been any such ma terial change in the political world, as would make it probable that the Noble Lord who in the first week of March was compelled to admit that he could not form a Ministry, although he bad the opportunity of doing so, should be in a position to boast that he was ready to take office and name bis colleagues in the first week of April. We do not believe, therefore, that there was any probability of a Stanley or Pro tectionist ministry being formed. . There were two courses open to the Min istry. They could either resign, or dissolve parliament and appeal to the co...

PRODUCE CIRCULARS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 26 July 1851

PRODUCE .CIRCULARS. Since our last reports there has been a large business done in tallow, the arrivals from the northward having been extensive. Prices seemed to have an upward tendency in consequence of a demand for ships' ac count. At the auction sale on Thursday, an advance of 5s. per ton wa3 established on the rates previously current. In reference to other articles of produce, we have nothing -new to notice, if we may except that recent and' most important ex port, Gold. Again has our community been startled by events far more important that any. not only hitherto known, but ever heretofore contemplated. We allude to the extraor dinary discovery by Mr. Kerr's aboriginal servant, of the ' hundred weight of gold :' and the great success of many organised parties of diggers, as reported by the pub lic press and confirmed by private advices. It is now undoubtedly established beyond, all question thjt gold will become one of the chief exports of the c untry; but we must again repea...

WOOL STATISTICS [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 26 July 1851

WOOL STATISTICS .. . (From the Economist, Janitary 11, 1851.) We recently called attention at some length to the fact that the balance of 'imports, and expoits of wool during 1850, in place of showing a favorable comparison between last year and former years, as was generally believed, was just the reverse. The returns brought down to the 5th of December, strengthened so much the views we then took, that we felt it our duty to call parti cular attention to that important part of the return. It will be seen that the importation of the month, of -wool of all kinds, was but 2,918,098. lbs., against 6,424,613 lbs. in the same month of 1849, and which makes the. comparison of the two years as follows : Wool.— January 5th'to DECEMiircR 5tii.

We have allowed the land to be invested with so much mystery, and our intellects have been so prostrated before a bit of land, that we could not view it as merchandise. But there is no reason why you should not have land transferred upon a small piece of paper, just a3 you invoice a bale of goods, and even easier.
