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

Sbu&amp;neij. The Gold News. — -It may tend in some degree to show the excitement caused by the finding of the -hundred weight of gold to mention, that four thousand one hundred and fifty copies of the Sydney Morning Herald of Friday last, containing the report of that marvellous event, were sold. The circulation of the Heraldic three thousand one hundred and fifty, and several hundred extra copies have occasionally been sold when anything of extra interest has oc curred, but never before was there a de» cnand for an additional thousand. Tim is a larger edition by far than was ever pub lished of a paper in this, or we believe in any other colony. For the Herald -of Sa turday, which contained further particulars, there was also a very considerable demand for,, extra numbers. A large portion of these extra copies were for transmission to England. — Herald.

EXPORTATION OF GOLD. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) The report of gold shipped in the Mary Bannatyne, as published in yesterday's Herald did not contain the whole quantity.

Folk, 126 ounces; William Walker and Co., 120 ounces ; Benjamin and Moses, 216 ounces ; Brush and Mac Donneli) 114 ouncea ; A. Dreutler, 249 ounces. The value of this gold at the cur rent rates is £11,648. There was' also about 800 ounces .of Californian gold on ? board. : Important Measure for Scotland.— We learn from, a source on which we can . rely, that it is intended,' soon offer the meeting of parliament, \o introduce an En cumbered Estates Act. for Scotland, Such a. measure is most, urgently needed in that country, and, should ir be of ^sufficiently liberal character, it will be productive of incalculable advantage to the people on t...

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

MOLONG. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; Police Investigation.— On Monday last Johns Davis our oldest constable, was charged before Messrs T. H. and A. C. Hood, Esqrs. J.P., with speaking disrespectfully of them, having in some fire-side yarn said that it was not a gentlemanly action of the said Magistrates to put on a level with Mr. Evans' letting a prisoner committed, on a capital charge escape from the Molong lock-up; when he had him in charge, with his Davis' suffering a man untried to escape from Mr. Finch's store, whom he afterwards retook. W. Ekins, a new arrival, told Mr. Evans who told Mr. Hood, and who had the case brought on ; after some inter- esting evidence the case was dismissed as too ridiculous to be entertained. Of this we might have been sure, as from our long knowledge of Constable Davis we can safely say that a more discreet and indefatigable policeman we could not well have. He is &amp;nbsp; moreover held in general estimation. Some Molong parties have just re...

The Diggings. OPHIR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 30 July 1851

3Wie Diggings. OPHIR. Thus intelligence from this quarter con tinues to be pretty much of the same cha racter. The Summer Hill creek continues nigh but is something lower' than ° of late. With a continuance of fine weather for ten or a dozen days it is expected that the miners may return to their workings in the bed of the creek. The very exciting intelligence from the Turon has assisted the floods in drawing the population from Ophir. Draft9 of people are leaving almost daily, and unless a reaction lakes place the mountains and glens of- the Summer Hill Creek will be left in their original solitude. From various sources we should set the .present population of Ophir down at from 500 to 600. A respectable individual just arrived from the diggings informs us that slygrogsel ling is carried on in a most impudent man ner, and that drunkenness is of course very prevalent. Disorder and confusion are the natural consequences of such a state of things : a?i a sample of which he related the...
