ENFRANCHISEMENT OF THE DIGGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 10 March 1855

ENFRANCHISEMENT OF THE DIGGERS. (From the Bendigo Advertiser.) In the Legislative Council, on Friday, the Colonial Secretary stated that the Government were in possession of a des patch on the subject of the Diggers' En franchisement Bill. The reading of the despatch proved that we are almost as far from obtaining our enfranchisement as ever, The following is a copy of the document: 1854-5. Victoria. Elective Franchise Extension Act. POSTPONEMENT OF HKR MAJESTY'S ASSENT. The Right Honourable the Secretary of State to His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor, 15th November, 1854. No. 39. Downing-street, 15th November, 1854.

MELBOURNE. Melbourne, March 6. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 10 March 1855

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). Melbourne, March (>. In answer to a question put to the At torney-General in his place in the Legisla tive Council, relative to the course in tended by the government to be pursued towards the remainder of the state pris oners, he replied that the government meant still to prosecute them for high treason; that the evidence forthcoming would be the same as adduced in the case of Josephs and Manning; and that the reason for postponement Avas the ' want of confidence' he had in the jury. I am' afraid the Attorney-General will still have to lament that want of confidence in the remainder of the verdicts. The discussion upon the merits of an Australian mint seems likely to be re newed ; although, from what information was gleaned during the late arguments upon this subject, little advantage would accrue to our young colony were the wished-for boon granted by the Imperial Government. The estimates still occupy the attention of the Council. A mor...

ECCLESIASTICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 10 March 1855

?ECCLESIASTICAL. The adjourned meeting of the parish ioners was held at the Assembly Rooms, on the evening of Monday, the 5th inst., for taking measures to secure the services of a resident assistant to the clergyman of the parish, at which the Very llev. the Dean of Melbourne presided. We regret to have to state that it was very thinly attended. To what circumstance this neglect is to be attributed, we know not; but the very marked contrast between the meetings of those professing the principles of the Church of England, and those of the Wesleyan persuasion is significant; and we cannot refrain from observing that, while at the opening of the place of worship designed for members of the latter sect,' a large number of members of the Church of England were present, who contributed freely and largely, and the chair was filled by the principal civil officer of the district, the meetings for advancing the interests of the Church of England have not received the counte nance of that off...

TUENA DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 10 March 1855

TUENA DIGGINGS. March 1st.-These diggings sun go on satisfactorily ; there has lately been a con siderable accession to the number of dig gers, and they now number more than 200, spread over an extent of two miles. Considerable parcels of gold continue to be brought inta Goulburn,'and spld to store keepers and others ; a lot of 200 ounces this day fetched £3 12s. per ounce. There is abundance of room here for thou sands more, and every chance of good re muneration for their labour; and as a proof of the prolific n;iture of these diggings, we may state that there areagwit many, in fact the major part of those now employed, are old hands, and have been there ever since gold was first discovered in the vicinity, thereby proving their good judgment, by remaining where they are well off.

! Til K I Sifcbcvtiscr." " This is true liberty, when free-born men, having to advise the public, may speak free." - IVIilt. trans. Eury. SATURDAY, MARCH 10, IHiiS. THE STATE TRIALS. THE announcement of the Attor ney-General, at the meeting of the court on the 27th tilt., with reference to the trial of the Balaarat prisoners, has excited universal surprise, and en gendered a pretty general feel ing of disgust at the .' fast and loose' manner in which the Government has trea ed this matter. Among the noblest institutions of the British Law, the privilege of trial by jury stands deservedly prominent. There are few who are not thoroughly alive to the sacred responsibility that rests with a jury, on whose decision depends theliberty,-perhaps the life,-of a fellow creature: and it is hard to believe it possible that a body of twelve men could be found so completely dead to all moral considerations, as to set aside truth and justice, and, for personal or public motives, to give an unanimo...

Local and Domestic. TOWNSHIP AT S.VAKE VALLKY.. The Government Surveyor, Lieut. Witty, R.E., has received instructions to lav out a town ship on the Nine-mile Creek. The site selected is, we believe, opposite the Camp, somewhere in the vicinity of the Star and Gold Diggers' Arms Hotels. There is no doubt but that this land will realise a high price, as it is now a considerable time since the Government have put up any allot ments in this neighbourhood. The suburban farms on the Three-mile Creek will be submitted to public competition some day this month.

Why, bless my soul! here's something strange, What can the paper mean By talking of the ' graceful brooks/ That * gander o'er the green?' And here's a T instead of r, Which makes it ' tippling riJl/ 'We'll seek the slmd/ instead of 'shade/ And ' hell' instead of ' hill.' ' They look so''-what? I recollect, 'Twas 'sweet,' and then 'twas 'kind;' And.now to think, the stupid fool, For ' bland' has printed ' blind.' Was ever such provoking work ?
