Original Contribution. PHYSICAL EDUCATION. ADOLESCENCE. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 26 July 1851

'Original (jfdnUibutioh. PHYSICAL EDUCATION. ADOLESCKNCB. (Continued!) Thb usual habit of making a girl hold her 'head very erect, with her should prs drawn backwards, for the purpose as it is said, 01 promoting a good carriage, cannot be long sustained, without a tedious, .painful, and; iniurious practice, and dn some-cases, not; -even then, -until mechanical -contrivances * ?are called into. requisition. A free easy and , igraceful carriage is decidedly of great ad- . Vantage 'to a young lady, arid not only; . -pleasing to every beholder, when it is na tural, but .-conducive very .materially to 'health. The expansion to which the^chest is subjected under, such. circumstances, pro 'inotes development and vigour of the in ternal organs, which never fail in their be ?neficial results. It may and will most na turally be nsked, how is a good carriage to be promoted in a natural way, or with out the use of artificial means ? Simply by giving .the necessary tone and power to .4he musceis...

POSITION OF THE MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 26 July 1851

POSITION OF THE MINISTRY.. ? The week which followed and which has -~nust closed, was marked by all the symptoms of increasing weakness and want of com roand. -On Monday, the Navy Estimates - were voted with a careless rapidity which brought the consistency and judgment of the economist to a test they could not stand, .and enabled the government to carry through some portion of the public business without any of those reductions which the amount and the nature of the Navy Estimates had Eiven the country a right to expect. On Tuesday came the adverse vote on Lord Duncan's resolution on the Woods and -Forests. The proposal was contested by Lord Seymour, in language which led the House to suppose that he secretly assented ?to its suggestions. Lord John Russell, ? apparently indifferent to the nature of the . -.question, or unconscious of the defection of its adherents, did nor. rise u, »FC.*m. *?- mmority consisted chiefly of the young and energetic .portion of his own :SAipporters , '...

They had procured the whole in a month at the Turon diggings.

CONVEYANCE AND ESCORT OF GOLD FROM THE MINES AT OPHIR, TO SYDNEY, ( From Friday's Government Gazette.) Colonial Secretary's Office, Sydney, 17th July, 1851. — His Excellency the Governor- General directs it to be notified, that pend- ing some more permanent measure, an arrangement has been made for the con-   veyance of gold, under the charge of an armed escort, from the mines at Ophir to Sydney, once a week, by the mail. 2. Persons having gold to transmit will therefore have the opportunity of forward- ing it with the security of the protection which the Government will be able to afford; but it is to be understood, that in the event of a loss, notwithstanding that protection, the Government will not be responsible for it.   3. The gold intended to be sent to Syd- ney is to be delivered to the Commissioner of Crown Lands at Ophir, who, after weighing it, will place it in bags, which are to be sealed, numbered, addressed, and marked by him, with the weight,...

Mi^znti&'^xixkh: [ ..: ]: The Whaie Boat Trade.— 'Few persons . unconnected with mercantile-and commer cial business are aware of the considerable trade carried on in this city and the towns above, and more particnlsrly ? with Marys ville, by means of whale boats. These boats arrive and depart daily. An average load is about forty- five hundred pounds, and the price of carriage about two per cents per p?und. With 'good management two trips may be made in a week, which at the above rates would yield a hundred ' and eighty dollars, or sixty dollars to the roan, for it generally requires three meo to tnanage a boat. But tbe labonr of the busi ness on the trip is very hard.— Ibid. Arkivalof Hungarian Refugees. — On Tuesday, tbe Sardinian bi% Arpia, Cap.

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

Mht Ufogmgs. (From our Ttiron Correspondent.) Since my former visit to this place, a ?wonderful change has occurred. The lonely gullies and solitary creeks and mountain sides where silence reigned supreme are now alive with industrious and eager, men anxious to win golden prizes. Two thou sand people, at the. very least, are scattered about the ranges of the Turou. On the day before my arrival more .diggings had been discovered at Oakey Crfek, about seven milea from the. Wallaby Rocks, which pro mise to eclipse those already known. ?! have been over a large portion of the ground this week, and from all I can see and learn they appear to be exceedingly rich. Nu merous pieces of three to five ounces have been found. As you may suppose, when once the intelligence got abroad, hundreds rushed there heltcr skelter, and amongst them many parties who had been getting their two to three ounces a day. Some of them in doing so changed for the better, and others, less successful returned to the...

SOUTH AUSTRAMA. New Gold Discoveries.— The town was all alive on Tuesday with the reports of new discoveries of gold on the Oskaparinga, the South Parra, and in the bed of the Tor rents. Later in the day, intelligence was also received of the discoverv of some valu able gold deposits at Mount Torrents near the property of William Present, Esq., the candidate for East Torrents. We have con versed with an experienced Mining Cap tain, who is at these discoveries, and ex pect more will come out in a day or two. What we have heard, however, convinces us that neither California nor Bathurst need be visited for the purpose of gold finding.— Adelaide Times, VlCTOfcU., Gold at Last. — The desideratum has at last been found, and that too in the imme diate vicinity of Melbourne. Mr. Greening was out last week on an exploring expedi tion, with a party, and brought several spe cimens of rock.

American Intelligence. (From the Hobart Town Guardian.) TREMENDOUS TORNADO IN TEN- NESSE— SEVERAL LIVES LOST,   AND TOWN DESTROYED.       Louisville, Thursday, Feb. 26. A terrible tornado nearly destroyed the town of Fayetteville, Tenn, on the 12th instant. Several lives were lost, and many persons seriously injured. The wind blew a perfect huricane, amidst which could be   heard the screams of women and children,   falling houses and crumbling walls, mingled with peals of thunder. The air was alive with electricity. Rain subsequently fell in torrents, and impenetrable darkness pre- vailed. The tornado came from the south west.

Melancholy Accident. — Supposed loss of Life.— On Monday night last, two pri-   vates attached to the 99th regiment, a por- tion of which is now quartered in this town, left the Barracks at about 9 -o'clock, and have not since returned. It appears that a female absconder, with whom one of the soldiers was acquainted, had retreated to the basin in order to escape the vigilance of the police, and that the unfortunate men     started for the purpose of visiting her. Ar- rived at the basin, they could not reach the place of her rendezvous without crossing —   there being a boat moored near the shore, it is supposed they attempted to paddle her across without oars, and were carried away by the stream — and this supposition unfor- tunately appears too well grounded, as the boat was found stove the following morn ing among the rocks.— G.

TURON DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 30 July 1851

TURON DIGGINGS. The following letter is not from the same pen as the one published in Saturday's is sue, but the information contained in it tends to corroborate the statements contained therein, and we therefore gladly give it publicity. ' - Turon River, July 25th 1851. Since my last communication to you we have been favored with an abundant supply of rain which has furnished the miner's wi'h plenty of water for washing purposes. In some few instances where the miner's have been working loose gravelly soil in the bed of the river, the water has found its way into their diggings and for a short time prevented their working, but this is by no means a general case.. Nearly all the miner's who were located on this part of the river (near the Wallaby rocks) and below it, have removed upwards. The accounts received from the higher part of the river were so flattering that companies of men who were obtaiuiog from two to five ounces per day, were induced to leave, but I have not yet heard ...
