TEE BENDIGO ADVERTISER. PROGRESSION, OUR RIGHTS, AND OUR RESOURCES. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1855. POST-OFFICE ARRANGEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 3 October 1855

TEE BENSIGO ADVERTISER. PROGRESSION, OOTl ErGIITS, AND ODU RKSODRCE3. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3,1855. POST-OFFICE ARRANU-WMH N 18. The- inhabitants of this-district have been felicitating themselves upon their., having at length enjoyed the advantages of daily mail communication with Melbourne, but their luck was too good to last long. It is a proverbial remark, that if there are two ways of doing any thing, one being beyond question better than the other, the Government is almost certain, whether from ill-luck or ill-management, to take the wrong one. Since the commencement of the present arrangements—by no means so satisfactory as they ought to be—a mail has reached Sandhurst every day except Monday. No mail leaves Melbourne on Sunday, so of course none cuu reach us on the following day. A mail has, however, left Sandhurst for Castlemaine every day iu the week, but as .no mail leaves Castlemaine on Sunday, the Sand hurst mail bags forwarded on the Saturday have quietly reposed i n Cast...

THE BENDIGO JACKDAW. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 3 October 1855

THE BENDIGO JA0KD4W. When those good-natured fellows who have stood for the last few Saturdays for hours lis tening to the turbid declamation of the well meaning gentlemen whom the spirit hath been Strongly moving of late, heard Mr. Orator Mackenzie launch into the bold metaphors of the "Drop of Water," and "The Sunbeam/' they must have been impressed with the pro foundest admiration for his rich metaphorical fancy. For ourselves, we confess we were some what " struck of a heap" at the daring manner in which the speaker struck off the road of com monplace into the path of allegory. The unconscious stiltedness of the rhetorio of the orator at one time, caused us to suspect all was not right, but the jumble of ideas here and there seemed so original, that we were almost inclined to grant Mr. Mackenzie the "-drop of water," and •' the sunbeam," as all his own. A sage old gentleman named JEsop, or who ever was the author of those delightful allego ries which we call fables, appears to h...

THE DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 3 October 1855

THE DIGGINGS. Prospecting enterprise is at present chiefly expended on the quartz reefs, so we have not got to chronicle any new rush worthy of notice amongst the alluvial diggings. The new ground at Myers's Flat continues to be worked by increasing numbers, so that it is to be presumed it pays wages at least. The quartz reefs are still attracting great attention, and everywhere may be observed lines of claims worked by indefatigable miners, many striking the coveted vein, while others sink to the depth of upwards of a hundred feet with out success. The hardness of the rock to be quarried through, and the expensiveness of the process, render quartz mining a more serious speculation than any of the ordinary gold workings. In many instances parties support themselves by alluvial digging while prosecuting their trial of some quartz claim. This self-supporting system on the part of the diggers ought to be encouraged as much as possible, and every facility should be afforded the individu...

FURTHER INTELLIGENCE OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 6 October 1855

FURTHER INTELLIGENCE OF THE WAR. San 1'ranoisco impers to the 8th of August have been received, from which we take the following extracts re specting the progress of the war in tlie Pacific. Tlie news is of peculiar interest to us, as it concerns movements which nmy involve an attack upon these colonies, or an attempt to interfere with our commerce. The Argus thinks it highly probable that the Russians lmve retired up the A moor, for the purpose of constructing vessels of war, intended for offensive operations in the Pacific. TI-jK KVACUATION OF l'KTl!OPAUI,OSKI. It will be recollected that the allied squadron in the Pacific made an attack upon Petropauloski in the early part of last September, and, having been rather roughly handled, sailed southward without effecting the reduction of the place. Petropauloski is the capital of Kamtschatka, and is n place of considerable importance. It is situated on a kind of inner bay, divided from the outer one by a sand-bar which runs parallel t...

NAVIGATION OF THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 6 October 1855

NAVIGATION OF TI-IE MURRAY. The immediate and the remote iufluenco of the opening up of this splendid river, upon this district, is too important to be overlooked. The centre of an unequalled goldfield, sur rounded by splendid agricultural country, on the Loddon and the Campaspie, and advan tageously situated midway between the metro polis and the great future highway of commerce in the interior, Sandhurst is un questionably deeply interested in the full development of the navigation of the Murray, the location of a numerous, industrious popu lation upon the splendid country through which it flows, and the consequent immense increase kof trade and commerce. As those important results, however, live but in idea at present, men who take a delight in being thought in tensely practical regard them rather as the fictions of an erratic fancy, than sober facts to be realized. Such men progress not with the times. They aro rather stumbling-blocks in the great journey.of improvement and pro ...
