NOTES ON THE CLARENCE RIVER. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner and New England Advertiser — 17 July 1860
NOTES ON THE CLARENCE RIVER. . ['FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] ' THE batiks of the river below Broad- water station are not so suitable for cul- tivation os jthose above. However, .there are many patches of excellent land. .' For instance, the banks of Pal- mer's Creek (the creek comes into the river about four miles below rocky mouth, Chowne's old place), and ex- tends to Ryan's Lake. There is also a channel from the lake down "to the heads, which forms a large island, be- tween'the lake and the'principal chan- nel of the river, called Palmer's Island. Withfthe'exception'of one or two spots, all the part of this island fronting the river and Palmer's Creek is rich black soil; the banks are high, falling back into low, freshwater swamps. There is room for good large farms in front, and the back Bwamps would afford feed for pigs. .?:. . . From two miles below rocky mouth, the north side bf the river is studded with islands, »till about four miles from the heads. Going down the north chann...

GOLD MINING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner and New England Advertiser — 17 July 1860
.GOLD MINING NEWS. 'BY the latest accounts from Kiandra, a good deal of ice had formed there. Most of the parties had returned from the rush at the head of the tumut. The hanks of the river at the locale arc very steep, and where a bend enables a dig- ger to sink the finds are very &lt;rich. Not one of the parties who have come back deny the existence of gold, but all affirm it is impossible for any poor company to work it. It is asserted that some of the parties who went there were lost in thc bush. Some more deaths have occurred on Kiandra lately, chiefly through damp beds and expo- sure. Business sites are greatly in de- mand, and the Bank of New South Wales is erecting a large and costly building. The news from the Braidwood dig- gings is very favourable. In thc happy Valley of the Araluen nil is bustle ana activity; and from Crown Flat right down to the lower end of Mudmelong, with but very few exceptions, all arc getting repaid for thc trouble, expense, and loss they h...

TOOLOOM. [FROM ODR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] i July 7th, 1860. THEuÉ was a rush from'here last week to a píacfe called "Mosquito Creek (ten miles jdistant) a watercourse which empties itself into the Clarence at the crossing-place on the road to Pretty Gully.] Two pr three parties are doing tolerably well, but the majority of the diggers have .returned, unsuccessful. There js no doubt that gold exists in the surrounding, country, but the creek itself is a mass.of.high slaty bars, and the gold is found in crevices} that ran acijoss the. bed of the .watercourse. We are exceedingly quiet here at the present): nothing doing beyond a bare living vith nine-tenths of. the diggers. Á man] named William ¡Graham died on the 5th instant, of confirmed rheu- matism ; he was 50 years of- age, a native of Ireland, and had been many years in)this country.; he was buried on the tanks of thc creek. We ¿ave had unsettled weather for the Iast'fcw days, terminating by a suc £essi¿n;pf thunderstorms, with a ho...

BICHMOND RIVER. [FROM OUR CQRRESPONDENT.J LIKE all other places at thia time of the year, thc Richmond is dull-excessively dull j money scarce, and promises libe- ral.

The .population here and" at Tooloom are idecidedly in favour of separation,; almost to a mari, and so are those at Timbarra and-Tabulam (as I have seen -several pérsous from those localities), but I am inclinedHo think that*" going in " for « distinct colony "between New South "Wales and Queensland would be thc leading and successful idea for all parties. . Gold has been discovered at last, and in paying quantities, the party, who brought it to light having been on the ground for a fortnight. The place is kept profoundly secret, and the fact ol the discovery is known to only a few, but the gentleman who furnished me with particulars is of the highest stand- ing, and may...

TROTTING FOR £20.-SWEEP- STAKES. j THIS event, of which, notice was given in our i columns sonic time ago, came off on Thursday last. On the morn- ing of the race tnc sporting fraternity of Grafton were on the gui vive, expect- ing an exciting hurst, for front thc pams taken by some oí the owners . to get their horses in good buckle, it was naturally concluded a fine race would ensue. In this, however, we, amongst many others, were most miserably dis- appointed. Tlie conditions of the race, as originally agreed upon and taken down by .ourselves, were that Messrs. Jones, Shoveller, Sabien, and Holt (our -Sporting Auctioneer) would trot their respective horses 3 times round the race course, each of those gentlemen back- ing their' horses for £5, play or pay, making altogether .?20, the winner to have the whole. At the same time the horses to trot were named, as follows : Mr. Shoveller named Mr. Allcup's Bessy, Mr. Jones named Cripple, Mr. Sabien named Lop-ear, arid Mr. Holl named Butt...

SNOWY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner and New England Advertiser — 17 July 1860
SNOWY RIVER. V" THE following letter, which has been forwarded to us for publication (by a person on the Timbarra), will be of interest to our readers : Snowy River, Thursday, 7th June, 1860. MR. S-.-Sir,-I have been here just a month to-day, and notwith- standing all that has been said to the contrary, I think this is the worst diggings I eyer saw,-miserable for the present, and hopeless for the future. I fear it will.prove a mockery, a delu- sion, and a snare to thousands if the great rush expected takes place in the spring. John and Charles started for the Turon two days after we got here. I also intend leaving on Monday next (weather permitting), not to return in the spring, but to bid,a farewell to tho Snowy River for ever. Kiandra may now be numbered among the things that were.
