Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 24 March 1855

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. SPRING CREEK.-The miners employed on this portion of the diggings are doing very well, more especially at the ' New Rush' at the Junction, indeed, we have heard it said, that some are meeting with extraordinary luck; the whole of the Creek begins to assume a lively appearance and there is every reason to expect that a large quantity of ground will be turned up during the winter. SNAKE VALLBY.-Very little has been doing during the pa9t week in consequence cf the dryness of the weather, but as there is every appearance that the rain which has been falling during the last two days will continue, it is to be anticipated, that mining operations will assume their wonted activity. A well known person, Jnamed Denis Sullivan, in conjunction with another, both residents on this Creek, have been arrested on a charge of robbing Mr. Meldrum's store, at Wangaratta. As we have not hacl an opportunity of heai'ing the evidence, w...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 31 March 1855

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. By the arrival of the Lightning with the January mail, we are put in possession of news to January 6th, and are enabled to givd" a more detailed account of the pro gress of the war. The army in the East is still actively engaged in preparations for the reduction of Sebastopol. The French army has been powerfully reinforced. At the date of despatches last received. 5000 men had joined, 2000 landed in the Crimea, and 5000 had sailed from the various French ports. The lines of the allied armies had been so extended by these accessions as mate rially to interrupt the communication be tween the town and the supjoorting Rus sian army. The force under Omar Pasha, destined to interrupt the arrival of Russian rein forcements, will, it is expected, prove a valuable auxiliary. From the advanced state of the prepa tions of the Allies, it was expected that on or about Christmas Day a formidable bombardment would be commenced against Sebastopol. in which the fleet would co-...

THE CONFERENCE AT VIENNA. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 31 March 1855

THE CONFERENCE AT VIEN NA. The final decision of Austria, which was to have been given on the 1st of January, has been postponed at the request of Prince Gortschakoff. There are some contradictory statements as to the probable result of this last attempt to bring Russia to reason. One account states that the Emperor has declared his willingness to accept ' the principles of the four points in their integrity, and without reserve,' which is said to have been deemed quite satisfactory by Austria. A second asserts, that Russia will not enter into negotiations on the basis of the four points without the immediate suppres sion of hostilities, and the withdrawal of the allied army from the Crimea, while a third, and more recent account from Vienna, says: ' Not only has no reply arrived from St. Petersburg to the Austrian summons, but not even has any written acknowledgment been sent from that city of the notification of the treatv of December 2, which certainly the R ussian Cabinet ought ...

THE BLACK SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 31 March 1855

THE BLACK SEA Kazatch Bay, the little inlet adjoining to the one containing the French ships, now holds the remnant of the Black Rea fleet. A8 an anchorage it is decidedly superior to the Katscha. No wind, ex cept, perhaps, a westerly hurricane, such as there is little reason to anticipate, can disturb the ships which ride on its bosom. The Vengeance and Rodney, in tow of the Agamemnon annd Algiers, joined the Commander-in-chief from the Katscha on the 11th ult. ; these, with the Hannibal, compose our whole force of line-of-battle ships at present watching Sebastopol. The French retain but four. The gaunt let is thus again thrown down to the enemy to engage upon equal terms, for our superiority in screw-ships may be fairly supposed to be counter balanced by the superior strength of their three deckers. ihe Bellerophon, at Eupatoria, and the Sanspareil, at Balac lava, would be unable to partake in the conflict. No one expects, however, to see a Russian, either by sea or land, dare to...

The present number of the Ovens and Murray Advertiser concludes the first quarter, and we have to congratulate our selves on the successful issue of the undertaking, so far as it has now gone. Our readers have been already informed that it is our intention to make most im portant alterations and improvements in the character of the Journal; and to lay before the public a newspaper containing double the amount of reading matter than we are at present able to afford, at the reduced charge of one shilling per copy. The Ovens and Murray Advertiser made its debfit under very unfavourable circumstances;-the scarcity, and conse quent enormous price, of printing materials of every description at the time, put it out of our power to place the Journal on the same footing which it now proposes to assume.

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 31 March 1855

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OE THE OVENS DISTRICT. SPRING CREEK-We are happy to observe a re-action in this locality. Many parties are at work all along the creek At the new rush at the Junction in especial great activity prevails. It is surprising to see the number of houses, stores, and restaurants that have been put up in so short a time ; it quite begins to assume the appearance of a township. Many of the claims, we are told* are turning out very successfully, and there have been some capital finds; one party, we have been informed, were realising 10 dwts. to the dish of washing stuff, averaging the same throughout. This is certainly an astonishing yield. The population is daily increasing, and there seems every prob ability that a first-rate winter digging will be established. We have heard mention made of some parties having gone further up the creek prospecting, but with what success we have not yet been able to learn. SNAKK VALLEY.-There has been a fallin...

THE STATE TRIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 31 March 1855

THE STATE TRIALS. The state trials are still being prosecuted with unrelenting assiduity by the Government. Of the prisoners eight have now been acquitted. In one case a nolle prosequi was entered by the Attorney General, as they could not find two wit nesses to any one overt act of treason com mitted by the prisoner. At the time of the last mail leaving Melbourne, four of the re maning prisoners had been brought to trial collectively, but were remanded. There can now be no doubt of the result, and we hope that these ridiculous proceedings will be brought to a speedy conclusion. Our readers will remember that from the very first we condemned the policy (or rather impolicy) of the Government in thus ^pursuing a course which was evident to all ?would only result in defeat, and that they did not avail themselves of the opportunity of gaining popularity, by granting an amnesty when it was demanded, which they might have done without in the slightest degree compromising the dignity of th...
