RIVER AND RAILWAY CARRIAGE COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 May 1883

RIVER AND RAILWAY CARRIAGE COMPANY. An American paper says, the relative cheapness of river compared with railway transportations, is shown by the case of the tow-boat Josh Williams, which some time ago took 32 barges laden with coals from Pittsburg to New Orleans When the fleet passed Cincinnati the '? Com mercial' thus noted it : 'The tow-boat Josh Williams is on her way to New Orleans with a tow of 82 barges containing 600,000 bushels (70 lbs. to the bushel) of coal, exclusive of her own fuel, being the largest tow ever taken to New Orleans or any where else in the world. Her freight bill at 3 cents per bushel amounts to §18,000. It would take 1,800 cars of 333 bushels to the car (which is an overload for a car) to transport this amount of coal. At $10 per ton or $100 per car. which would be a fair price for the distance by rail, the freight bill would amount to $1SO'000, or $162,000 more hy rail tlian by river. The tow Will be taken from Pittsburg to New Orleans in 14 or 15 days...

FOR THE SIX AND EIGHTPENNY MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 May 1883

FOR THE SIX AND EIGHTPENNY MEN. This story is told of Belva Lock wood, the female lawyer of Washington. A witty fellow was once her opposing counsel, and when he desired to refer to the Hon. Belva, was perplexed. He could not say 'my brother,' as he did when speaking of lawyers of his own sex. He did not like to say my 'sister' out of respect to that expression. He caused a smile by referring to Belva as his 'sister-in-law,' but she certainly looked daggers at him.

HISTORY OF THE DISCOVERY OF THE FIRST PAYABLE GOLD-FIELD IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 May 1883

HISTORY OF THE D1SC0VEBY OF THE FIRST PAYABLE GOLD-FIELD IN AUSTRALIA. Early, in February 1851, Mr. E. H. Hargraves came to Mrs. John Lister's, Guyong, and told her and her family that he was on his way to Wellington in search of a gohUfield. Mrs. Lister's eldest son, John, upon hearing- his business, exhibited some stones which appeared to Mr. Hargraves to be of an auriferous character, and upon being informed by Mr. Lister as to where he had got them, he proposed joining Lister as a colleague in the search of a gold-field in the direction Lesfcr had been previously prospecting; accordingly on the 12th day of February, 1851, John Lister took him to a spot on the Lewis' Ponds Creek, some four or five miles south of what now boars the name of Ophir, where Mr. Hargraves washed some earth in a pan or tin dish, and succeeded in procuring one or two very minute specks of gold. On the evening of the day these few specks were obtained, Mr. Hargraves and Mr. Lister returned to the Guyong In...

ELECTRICITY FOR MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 May 1883

ELECTRICITY FOE MINING. A London correspondent in the Belfast (Ireland) Morning News of the 20th February says :— ' A new use has been made for electricity, which has now, as we knQW, been carried to a high state of development. At a private gathering in London the wonderful fluid was made to do duty in a direction which will cause a revolution in the mining world. This experiment has, it seems, proved satisfactorily that its application to quartz rock, containing gold, tin, zinc, or silver, will separate the particles without the waste of fuel and machinery which have hitherto been deemed necessary to the process. The discovery has, it seems, set many a-thinking, since it is known that thousands of tons are annually cast aside because the process of disintegration is too expensive. But electricity is to step in and effect a revolution, by which, what was heretofore unworkable, will become sources of undoubted profit !'

This great Blayney Copper Mine has seen some rather lively%imes. Five 'shillings paid shares went up like Queerif^ birthday fireworks to 17s. ? an- an-and down they came like Russians on a Turkish camp, until at last thews was a general 'bust up!' But many believers in the mine continued to hope that there was ' fire where there was smoke,' and their hopes are about to ' blaze up,' as we hear the mine is to be started on a more vigorous scale than ever. We must congratulate Blayney on the prospect of having a good mine in full swing ; and let us hope, for the benefit of that energetic little township and the surrounding districts, that it may be a most successful affair.

THINGS MIXED. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 June 1883

THINGS MIXED. Since the prorogation of Parliament, it seems to have become everybody's business to search and dis cover irregularities in the work done during the previous session : and certainly some of the dis crepancies which have been unearthed serve to attach no small amount of blame to those whose duty it is to conduct the Government business. The present vacation is without precedent in the number of gross cases of legislative bungling which have been brought to light. The latest discovery is the supposed blunder in the Act passed last session for increasing the salaries and pensions of Supreme Court Judges. It is maintained that as provision is made for drawing the pensions out of a certain fund, it is also necessary to state the source from which the salaries shall be obtained. This, it must be admitted, is a very difficult problem to decide — one that will ?produce as much diversity of opinion amongst the luminaries of the law as it will in the minds of the general public....

NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 June 1883

NEW GUINEA. The annexation ef New Guinea is likely to prove a new starting-point for the administration of affairs in the Pacific. It involves new responsibilities, in undertaking to protect from spoilation the most considerable population of savages now known to exist on the face of the earth. The experiment is a novel one, and will be watched with much interest by the civilized world. Queensland, in noting the signs of the times, sees that before long her interests and trade in the Torres Straits and down the Gulf of Carpentaria may be menaced by the armour-plated vessels of a foreign neighbour. Other powers are casting longing eyes on colonial acquisitions. France is working to this end in Tonquin, Madagascar, and in Central Africa, where De Brazza is advancing her interests. The sister colony feels that New Caledonia is quite near enough to our island continent to be pleasant, and that now is the time to prevent the rearing of a Calais opposite to our Australian Dover. We have r...

The New Combination Redstead. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 June 1883

fhc Jtow Combination llcdsfead. [t was night. The boarding-house was rapt in tenebrious^gloom, faintly tinged with an odour of kerosene. Suddenly there arose in the air a yell, followed by wild objurgation? and runous anathemas. There was a clanking and rattling, as of an over turned picket fence, and another yell, with more anathemas. The fatted boarders listened, and, ghostly clad, tip toed along to Buff urn's room, he of Buff urn and Bird, secondhand furniture dealers. As they stood there, there was a whizz, a grinding, a rattling, and a bang, and more yells. They consulted and knocked on the door. 'Come in.' « Open it.' 'I can't' Convinced that Buffum was in his last agony, they knocked in the door with a bed post. The sight was ghastly. Clasped between two sturdy, through slender frames of walnut, Buffum, pale as a ghost, was six feet up in the air. He couldn't move. He was caught like a bear in a log-trap. ' What on earth is it?' they said. ' Bedstead — combination. New patent...

HISTORY OF THE DISCOVERY OF THE FIRST' PAYABLE GOLD-FIELD IN AUSTRALIA. rCONCLUDED.1 After procuring two ounces of the precious metal fron the ' Fits Roy Bar.' Mr. Lister and Wm. Tom proceed* lower on the same course of water, and where a tributary creek joins the main one, Mr. Lister, while he nut oi his horse, saw a bit of gold above the ground, and *' when he got off his horse and attempted to pick it up, he --found it was wrapped around a root— presenting an appearance of the root having grown quite through it. This nugget weighed 'two ounces, and was the last gold we found. As we were quite out of provisions, we camped for the night, and started for home early on the following morning, carrying, of course, our four ounces of precious metal along with us. After arriving home, we communicated all the particulars of what had transpired to Mr. Har graves, who arrived at Guyong about a fortnight after, and as we regarded him as the principal of our party, vn placed the four ounces o...
