SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 14 February 1857

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. {From our special correspondent,,) The Legislative Council has had but one sitting since I last communicated to you, and nothing of importance occurred at it. A Petition was presented from some of the inhabitants of the neighbourhood of the manufac tories asking for an enactment to cornpell manufactories to raise their chimuies to a certain hcuht or to consume their own smoke. It should not be necessary for an en lightened Government to b2 sued on such a subject for it concerns both |ho lives and tho proporty of its people, and takiog warning from tho opposition a similar Act received in England, it should bring forward such a moasu e prior to vested interests acquiring too great strength.

The government, fooling this, were anxious not to ?hastily bring beforo tho country any cru le system -of* na tional educaiion. Tho difficulties nurtouriding the subject were such as almost to apnal tho mind, and itcould only bo approached with foolings of humility.

KHULL'S STATISTICS OF THIS GOLD FIELDS OF VICTORIA. FOR THE YEAR 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 14 February 1857

KlIULL'S STATISTICS OF THE GOLD FIELDS OF VICTORIA. Foil tup. Yea it 185fi. (From the Courier of the Minn.) Comparing the fifth annual statistical account of tho gold fields of Victoria for the year ltififi, it bears tbe fa vourable position of showing an incrcaso over 1K55 of 10 per cent, which is mainly owing to the extended use of ?team power in ronnoxion with quartz crushing. In 1855 steam power was introduced for tho purpose of quarte crushing ; bnt tbe want of a proper knowledge of 1 tho process was against any great quantity of gold being producod. Now, however, it is different With an ad ditional year's cxpcricnco. the quantity of amalgamated gold has increased to nearly one-vighth of tho produco of lhe[ycar. When a strido so gigantio has taken place with one year's increased knowledge in the process of crushing and amalgamation (tho latter process hitherto tho greatest obstacle to success) what may we not look forward to within another year's cxporionco and increase of mach...
