TO THE EDITOR OF THE MINING RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 31 August 1867

[?] Sin— I toe that in tho now Land Bill, in* trodaced by Mr. Martin, nothing is proposed to bo dono in that matter about which, somo six months ago, tho pooplo of this district brought under thonotico of tho Government — 1 refer to tho power to free-select aurifer ous land which is not in a proclaimed gold field. The notorious Jlctlnmn ctuo has clear)? shown how oasy it would be for a person to possess himself of a gold-field by tlio means of free selecting the land beforo it was pro claimed, and thus exclude the miner, or mako his own terms with him. A very short clause giving the Crown power to resume such sclcctcd land upon certain terms, upon its being proved to bo auriferous, would prcvont this monster monopoly, which inny^arise any day. The Einn Creek' gold-Gt-ld extends only a very short way from the town in one direction, and 'tis impossible to say how soon before payable gold may be found boyond the boundury. Whoever may be tho lucky man to make the discovery, ho hus only ...

MISCELLANEOUS. THE NEW BLACK DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 7 September 1867

MISCELLANEOUS. THE NEW BLAOK DEATH. A few weeks ago a motion was brought forward in tbo Houso of Commons by Sir Jervoiso Ciarko-Jervoisc, praying for an in* nuiry into contagious and infectious diseases. Lord Robert Montagu, in reply, contended that tho completeness of our information on tuis subjcct rendered any further inquiry un necessary. Ho reminded tho House that in tno recent instances tho government had caused most careful aud accurate investiga* Hons to bo instituted. ' A commissioner had been sent to Russia to inquire into ' thebhick death,' ' and with regard to thn cholera, 'the results had been tabulated, and would appear in a few days.' Ho conccded, indeed, that 'there might bo eomo fow speciul diseases upon which additional knowledgo wus re quired.' But it was clear,that, in his esti mation, this ' additional' knowledge' was rather calculated to satisfy scientific ouriosity than, to meet any probabio emergency of na tional importance. ' And thus tho matter dropped. It ...
