The Search for Gold. — At length some undoubted, gold has been produced as a claim for the Maitland gold reward, the specimen being a 'nugget' of about an ounce in weight, and some large scales and bits broken off from it, the original nugget having weighed, we are told, two onuces and a half. We are not yet in a position to mention names or locality ; further search is being made to see if the locality is really a gold field, or if this was merely a stray lump ; we. believe it was found on the west of the Dividing Range, and further north than Scone. The gold has a good deal the same appearance us that from Ophir, and very little stone or earth is visible in- the nugget.— Mailland Mercury. /Capital Punishments. — We were much surprisd at hearing Mr. Justice Dickinson, when sentencing a prisoner convicted of cattle stealing, state that it might be expe dient and advisable to re-enact in this co lony the abrogoted law with regard to this offence, by which the punishment of death was ...

Lord Brougham, of all public men, is now renderinsf the beat service in the country..; While party politicians are striving only for, their own personal ends, the indefatigable Brougham is labouring in the cause of law reform, with a zeal and energy that remind us of his beat davs. Aire cannot whither his energies, nor labour wear him out. His recent Bill for the extension of the jiirisdio tion of the country courts is one of the best and most beneficial measures that has ever been proposed. It surely must shame the Ministry, if they have any sense of shame remaining, to find every good and useful measure started by private Members. Nothing in the shape of law reform or finan cial reform has been as yet exhibited by the Government, though we are promised some striking plan for Chancery Reform, which, however, we may very likely never see pro pounded. Brougham, too, by his attacks upon the unfairness of the operation of the Income-tax, and upon the iniquities of Schedule D, bus a cla...

Plot to Assassinate thb Nepaulese Ambassador. — Letters of thh l7th»Febru ary, direct from Nepaul, give particulars of a conspiracy for the assassination of Jung Bahadoor, ju*t discovered. The murder was to have been committed on the day we have named, as the minister was on his way to the Durbar. The conspirators were the Manila Sahib, the Maharajah's brother, G neral Budea Nar Sing, his brother; Ge neral Jaie Bahadoor, the cousin of his in tended victim — together with Khurbeef Ghutree, one of the chiefs who accompanied the minister to England. The plot was dis covered through the treachery of one of th& conspirators, near midnight on the 16th, and the plotters, finding too mach koown for concealment, confessed the reBt.'in hopes of making the best of their case. The Ra jah's brothers were dissatisfied with the;'; jaghirea which had bepn tssigned them, and the minister's brother was induced to join them, having been detected in accept ing bribes.

To the Editor of the Bathusrt Free Prew, and Mining Journal.' Sir; — After the close appeals you have al ready made to all classes concerned, as to the coming election, it .may seem next to useless for a mere correspondent to say any thing on the same topic ; and were it not that I think it too hard to leave von single handed in the affair, I would by no means I presume to trouble either yourself or your I readers with this communication!,,. .. I I have been thinking that the manifest I indisposition to meet the wishes of us elec- I tors must proceed either from real modesty arising from a sense of incompetency to fill so important an office as member for this county, or from mock modesty springing from an overpowering vanity to be Bought after and entreated. In the former sup posed case there might be some show of reason, on account of the rise, in our im portance as to wealth &c, and the necessity which haB therefore suddenly been created foi a very wise and very practical...

©rigfoal ©Qmspon&ence. To the Editor of the ll Bathurst Free Prest and Mining Journal,' Sir, — lam not aware whether the gold district Commissioners should take any ac count of thefalse weights of gold buyers at the diggings, but 1 think the government ought io protect the licensed miners from the bare-faced robbery-of some buyers who give the highest price on this river. I was yesterday under the necessity of selling a few ounces (3ozs.,) to pay for a horse &c, I had bought. I took the neces sary precaution to have it weighed before I Uok it to the person to whom I offered it for sale. This gold buyer who gives the highest price, found my gold in his scale at the rate of about one penny weight an ounce too -light. I took the £old out of the scale and told the gentleman of the false weights or balance ~that I had it weighed previous to coming to him, and that he should not have it. 1 'sold the same gold to'anotner person at' the proper weight.

Thb Great Exhibition in London.— To many people it seems au unnecessary exer cise of official authority that an examination of the goods for the Exhibition should at present take place for revenue purposes; it being contended that the Crystal Palace being- declared a bonded warehouse, and every precaution to prevent any irregular or smuggling proceedings, the custom-house people might quite aa well perform their duties after the exhibition has terminated as now. It appears, however, that they have no alternative, being compelled by statute to act at once. We are even told that to afford the necessary facilities for foreign and colo nial contributions to the World's Fair, they have stretched the stringent laws which bind them aa far as they possibly or safely could, and that they are most anxious by all the means in their power to avoid proving stumbling blocks on so interesting an occa sion.

No doubt the working classes are ' better off' here than in Britain. As a whole, they get higher wages. They live better; dress better; and have a better chance of getting on in the world.

We have the pleasure of announcing to our leaders that two alleged gold fields have teen disclosed to the Gold Reward Com mittee, and specimens from each submitted, both pronounced to be gold. On Monday last, Mr. T. S.

Several of the committee having been consulted, it was determined to hold a meeting on Wednes day evening, at the Fitz Roy Hotel, to re ceive and consider Mr. Hall's claim and for general business. - „ A meeting of the committee was accor dingly hel...
