MOUNT ARARAT DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 August 1856

MOUNT ARARAT DIGGINGS.     Ararat is still the producer of large quanti-   ties of gold. The lead on Phillip's Flat is get- ting deeper, and several first-rate holes have been bottomed this week. New England is one of the principal topics on Ararat. Several par- ties have left for that part, although we still boast of a large population. Armstrong's is also doing well, a rich surface hill having been dis- covered. The magistrates have had several cases this week to adjudicate on, principally assaults, but the police arrangements are now very different to what they were formerly ; Ser- geant M'Nally being very energetic in his du- ties. Stores of all kinds are on the decline, from the fact of large arrivals this week. Nearly 300 Celestials passed on Saturday towards Plea- sant Creek. Ararat is now nearly connected with diggings to Armstrong'a, and thence to Pleasant Creek, nearly twenty-four miles, not a very small gold field.-Correspondent Geel...

ALLEGED DISCOVERY OF A NEW GOLD-FIELD NEAR THE BUCKLAND ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 19 August 1856

ALLEGED DISCOVERY OF A NEW   GOLD-FIELD NEAR THE BUCK-   LAND ROAD.   The following appears in an Extraordi- nary issued by the Ovens and Murray Ad- vertiser on Monday last, at noon :- This morning a party of miners attended at the Local Court to claim the extra area of ground allotted under the regulations to discoverers of new diggings. It appears that Messrs Dane, Holland & Co. had been working about four weeks at a about six miles above the junction of the creek leading to Happy Valley Creek, and had obtained gold prospects. The road, or rather route, to the new diggings is along the Buckland-road to a spot about thirty yards past the Happy Valley crossing, where two or three cart tracks will be per- ceived leading to the ground. The dray- track passes along the foot of a range of hills for a distance of thirteen miles, when it reaches the creek where the diggers num- bering about twenty, are at work. This creek is called Running Cr...

REPRESENTATIVE GENIUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 21 August 1856

[ ^REPRESENTATIVE GENIUS. " This is a democratic country, and let ! us institute such high-toned judicious J policy that will prove to the world that ' i democracy is far superior to aristo cracy." (sic.) Vide Mr. Loader's ad dress to the Electors of North Grant From one cause and another-to analyse which neither hes legitimately -within our province, nor is necessary for present purposes-the mystery of this sentence is somewhat hard to get at the heart of. If the words collocated as above have honestly any meaning at all-but we doubt it-they convey at best but an absurdity. The proposi tion, such as it is, is obviously falsified by the phraseology in which it is put forth. The outward signs rise up in overt rebellion against the validity and truth of the thing signified. In short, technically speaking, the terms them I selves are tantamount to a summary I reductio ad impossibile, so that perforce the proposition gives itself the lie. However, as words, we are told, are the counters...

Adelaide, 14th August, 1856. oír menard macdonnell, accompanied Dy Lady Macdonnell, is about to start to morrow in tbe steamer Melbourne, for a trip up the Murray, and will perhaps go as far as Albury. As they return they mean to land at Overland Comer, and proceed to the Burra, Angaston, Truro, Blanche town, and Kapunda. This is thc time of the year when plough ing matches abound ; and they appear to be more numerous and more numerously attended every year. The weather has been remarkably propitious; since the latter end of June we have had no heavy rains ; and what rain has fallen has been mostly through the night, so that the days have been generally bright and fine. A large piece of land on the North Adelaide side of the Torrens in being fenced in, and square patches trenched for planting young trees in. Almost all the trees in the Park lands have died, or have been disfigured by most unsparing lopping, and this planting is a st...

I _ SYDNEY. j ( from our own correspondent.) __ 16th Acgost. l ne ministry Have sustained their first ac tn al defeat by the adoption in the Assembly, on Tuesday, of a resolution condemning the appointment of the judges to the Upper House ; bot this was owing to die ebsence of some of those who vote with the government. This afternoon the question is to be re-opened, and there will be a different result ; diere will« I expect, be a majority of about five in favor of Mr Donaldson's motion to rescind the vote of Tuesday evening. Nevertheless this is very " close shaving ;" and it is clear that in the discussion of some of the more "shattering" questions-those I mean of our political enig mas, to which, even among the supporters of tue ministry, different solutions would be given -a majority in favor of the existing govern - ¡ ment is anything but certain.

UNFORTUNATE MINER. (Per favor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 21 August 1856

ÜOTOKTÜNATE MINER. (Fer favor of the Star.J om,-i aaa takes you to De an honest man from the tone and style of your former letter, but I am sorry to tell you that in this letter you manifest a rlnTerent spirit. In reply to my first question you answer, " I wül say I don't. Have I made any allusion to the Terrible and Green Hills Leads iu my letter." Indeed I viii say I don't, that is whether I do or not, allow me to plead a convenient ignorance on the subject. You but too clearly see the drift of my question to answer it ina candid manner. Not content, however, with this, you ask have you made any allusion to these leads referred to. Of course you have not, nor would you but for my question. You knew too well, as does every well-informed miner, that the manner in which the Warden acted on these leads, in connection with the New Regulations, would have estab lished, independent of his known high charac ter, a good a priori case for him against his calumniators. But as for partisan pu...

BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. Ballarat, 20th August, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 21 August 1856

BALLARAT TRADE REPORT. Ballarat, 20th August, 1856. Considerable dullness has prevailed for the last fortnight, though somewhat relieved by the great clearing off sales, notice of which meet ua at every corner. The slack ness in trade is to be attributed more lo the expectations entertained by storekeepers that on the return of dry weather goods must bc cheaper, than to any other cause. Trade must be good during the coming months, better than it has ever been on Ballarat hitherto. The population being larger, with every prospect of the great bulk being better paid than heretofore. There is very little actual changes to note in the price of g^ods, though there is every indication of a general rise in most articles in the Melbourne and Geelong mar kets. Breadstuffs.-Flour is still firm at our last quotations, but with every prospect of an advance,-several shipments having taken place to Sydney, where prices have risen very rapidly. There is no alteration ia Bice. Oats still maintain f...

I BUNINYONG. I (Front eur own Correspondent.) 18th August. The milling near "Webb's paddock is still being j worked but by only a few parties. The reports from the Green Hüls are favorable, the lead is now being worked for upwards of half a mile beyond uie old claims. On the Black Lead parties washing up from from some of the ear lier claims appear to have had a fair return for their labor. Mr Allan has purchased the ground and is about to set up a urge steam floor mill. This will be a great acquisition to Buninyong. It is now to be hoped that the farmers will see the necessity of laying down the land for wheat growing in large quantities. The second saw mill, belonging to the Trial Saw MAI Company, is now at work, and thc old and new mills are connected by a tramway about a mile and a half long.

The diggers' wants. The storekeepers' wants. The Mam-road mens* wants. The loafers' wants. Or bis own wants ? The diggers dis own him I know. They know hun as a spouter at all meetings, where a quid of po pularity could be got to be chewed in secret while flinting of number one.
