®iie Bfogings. - (From our Turon Correspondent.) News is not very plentiful just now. Every thing i* pi-ocerding in pretty much the same order as when I last wrote, you.' One pary left'the river to day with ISO ounces of gold, quite disgusted with their luck because other parties reckoned theirs by the pound. Messrs. De Clouet, Blanden and Corse are at work beside me, and are growing quite melancholy* on £3 a day each. When ifwy first broke ground fortune frowned upon them. After working hard for three or four days, they had realised a p nny weight ami a half. .But latterly they have got as much as fi\e ounces some days. If my friend' of the Spoitsmatvs Arms goes on in this style, 'I expect he will be feeding Little John on curds and whey, and placing him in a ma hogany box. I had sonr.e thought to-day of offering him £200 for him, bnt must wait until I did it out of the creek. Many parties are leaving CXikey Creek because they say the ground is exhausted.

(Bnatfefi 'Nefok THE MINISTRY^ ; ^r 0 1 (Front the Morning Herdidi April K2.) We are as wise to-day as we were yes-' terday as to the reasons which induced Mi nisters and th«ir adherents to- oppose the emotion of Mr. Disraeli last night. The ?only cause assignable to this course of po licy is the same which advised the Monarch from the Throne, at the commencement of the session, to acknowledge and commise rate the distressed condition ot the owners and occupiers of land, and in a few days afterwards to refuse even an inquiry into the grievances which the Government had ndvised the Sovereign to recognise. The love of office, under auy circumstances of discomfiture or disgrace, which, has ever been the distinguishing characteristic of ^Whiggery — that i3 the cause of the oppo sition by Government to the reasonable and .temperate propositions of Mr. Disraeli last night, when every other reason — when loy alty to the advice tendered to their Queen should have demanded their concurrence ...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 2 August 1851

J$fecellanmi8 Extracts. ? A Gigantic Mausoleum.— -The Leicester Mercury describes a large model of an 'immense Pyramidal, Cemetery' designed by~Mr. Thomas Wilson, architect, of that town, and to be sent up to the Great Ex hibition. Mr. Wilson thinks that the present suburban cemeteries in the neighbourhood of London will, in.thecour.se of a fe\y years, become very much crowded/and that it will be found difficult to obtain additional; tracts! of land of sufficient size to prevent the ne cessity of a recurrence to the evils of intra mural interment. He. therefore proposes the construction of a National Metropolitan Cemetry on Woking Common, Surrey, of from 100 to 200 acres in extent. In th'3 '? centre of this, he proposes to erect his great Pyramid Mausoleum, occupying an area of from 18' to 20 acres, and rising in successive stages of catacombs (10 feet high arid arched ^. to5 the height of 900 feet— each stage, of course, gradually diminishing — ^ until the apex is reached ; and on ...

AND MINING JOURNAL.     SATURDAY, AUGUST, 2, 1851.     "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PRÆVALEBIT." SEIZURE OF THE HUNDRED   WEIGHT OF GOLD.     By a paragraph in another part of the pa- per it will be seen that Mr. Commissioner Hardy has seized the hundred weight of gold, or rather what he believes to be so, on behalf of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. The grounds upon which he has proceeded are that as Dr. Kerr held no license at the time of the discovery, the gold was the property of the Crown. By virtue there- fore of Her Majesty's claim the gold was forcibly seized and is now detained. Now we believe that the claim of Her     Majesty as Queen of the British Empire, to all the precious metals of her Australian   territories is indisputable, that is to say she is supposed to hold them in trust for the be- refit of her subjects. No one will be found hardy enough to d...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 6 August 1851

MINING INTELLIGENCE. Thb news from the Turon continues pretty much of the same character, and. with the exception of a few very fortunate arrivals from that quarter, nothing unusual has occurred. On Saturday last Hal ''a party, consisting of three brothers, came to Bathurst with 48 lbs. of gold, which they had pro cured in a month. It was purchased by Me sr8. Solomons and Co., at £3 6a.- 3d. per ounce. The total amount paid for the gold was £1800. This' sudden stroke of good fortune has elevated their family from complete indigence to a state of competency, as may be gathered from the circumstance tha,t they were compelled to borrow money from a neighbour to complete their outfit. Mr. Solomons has also purchased 200 oz, from Dawson's party, who have also been extremely fortunate, at £3 5s. per ounce. During the last three days of which any intelligence is known, they had been making about 3 lbs. each day. Mr. Fitzpatrick has bought a beautiful, sample of 50 dzs. from fortunate parti...
