Literature. POLITICAL ECONOMY. (Continued from our last). EXCHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 March 1855

Literature. POLITICAL ECONOMY. ( Continued from our last). EXCHANGE. IN the first condition of human labour, every man would have to plough and reap for himself, and also to make with his own hands all the rude articles he required for his personal conveniency. Having plenty of time, he would feel this as no great dis advantage. By and bye, his time would become more valuable, and in order to make as good use of it as possible, he would find it advisable to confine himself to agricultural labour, and purchase those manufactured articles which he required, from a man who, for the same reason, had begun to make the production of such things his exclusive business, Thus, society would become divided into distinct classes, who exchanged labour with each other for the general conveniency, and for the pur pose of making each individual more productive. PROPERTY. One thing was from the very first neces sary, before any labour could be undertaken upon proper principles. It was necessary tha...

To the Editor of the Ovens and Murray Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 March 1855

To the Editor of Ike Ovens and Murray Advertiser. Sin-I have read with considerable in terest your remarks in last Saturday's issue regarding the appointment of a lay deacon for Beechworth, especially as it is in itself a sufficient refutation of the excuse urged by some, for their want of cor- . diality.and cooperation, that 'mystery has been used regarding the nature of the office and the gentleman likely to be ap pointed.' Yet, a person unknown to me is able to write most lucidly upon the subject. It is not my practice to take notice of every ill-natured or unchristian remark I meet with in Jthe exec ution of my duty, and therefore content myself with saying, that such a charge comes with a very bad grace from those wlio had not sufficient interest in our proceedings or courtesy to meet either the Dean or myself at any of our meetings. I for one greatly rejoice in the institu tion of the probationary office of a lay deacon in this diocese, which may be ? viewed as a step towards ...

Original Correspondence. To The Editor of the Ovens and Murray Advertiser. Beechworth, March 15, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 March 1855

! Original Correspondence. | To Ihe Editor of the Ovens and Murray Advertiser. Beechworth, March 15, 1855. DEAR Sin-On reading a paragraph in your valuable journal of the 10th instant, under the head Ecclesiastical, I perceive some remarks, calculated, in my opinion, to produce an erroneous impression upon | the minds of your readers with reference to the interest manifested by the Wes leyans of Beechworth on behalf of the Established Church. In the first place I must admit with you, that there was indeed a marked con trast between the meetings of the former and the latter, but this, I think, can easily be accounted for without throwing the blame on a Government official, or the Wesleyan body. In all probability, if the same zeal and method had been used by the members of the latter as of the former, equal, and even more abundant, results would have followed. Perhaps, sir, you may remember when the Wesleyans commenced ; they not only plentifully placarded Beechworth and the surround...

GOOD NEWS FROM THE ADELONG. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 March 1855

GOOD NEWS FROM THE ADELONG. We have just received from a corres pondent upon whose veracity we can de pend, the following very chcering and encouraging particulars : It has often been remarked of late in the Goulbum Herald that the southern diggings are being rapidly worked out, whereas, in fact, they are hardly com menced yet; and as they are the last in being developed, their immense extent will certainly continue their working when the ephemeral renown of many other places is long forgotten, Tn the first place there is the Adelong: it is now being worked at intervals for thirty miles along its course, and no one place can well be called preferable to another. Probably the richest claims have been and will be at the falls near iWartin Crone's, where any one who is moderately steady and skilful may clear from £.>() to £!i0 weekly, as many have done and are still doing. Here there is also some good .surfacing, where any in dustrious digger could clear an ounce-per man daily. The ...

BRAIDWOOD DIGGINGS. March 7, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 March 1855

I . 1 BRAIDWOOD DIGGINGS. March 7, 1855. There is no change in this place, all things continue very dull. On Major's Creek and the new diggings, the diggers are doing as formerly. ,The Little River diggings are pro gressing rapidly ; there are only about sixty diggers on this place. I believe that .nil are doing well. The character of the gold found on these diggings is nug getty ; a person by the name of Somers has found a large quantity of gold, among which are nuggets varying from 3 to 4 ozs. I have just seen a nugget purchased by Mr. Fanner, from an American weigh ing 8 ozs. 2 dwts. ; he has I understand plenty of smaller ones, and has been of fered £200 for his claim which he refused

THE "<SM)en0 attto JSIttsxag SHrbcrtiscr." " This is true liberty, when free-bom men, having to advise the public, may speak free."-Milt, trans. Eury. SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 1855. THE MEMBER FOR THE GOLD FIELDS. MR. HUMFFRAY, the secretary of the Victorian Reform League, Balaarat district, has addressed a letter to the editor of the Age, on the subject of Dr. Owens' election as member for the Gold Fields. By this communication it would seem that the Balaarat people have determined upon not supporting the election, on the grounds that the Dr.'s return ?would be a concession on the part of the diggers, which would ultimately, be injurious to their common cause. We cannot by any means agree with the Reform League on -this point. In the first place it must be^ remembered that the act, ex tendipg the franchise to the' diggers,is not as yet law, although; there are no reasonable grounds for supposing that any further delay will take place in obtaining the Royal assent.
