Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 14 April 1855

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. SPRING CJIEKK. - Mining operations are still on the increase. The rush at the Junction still continues the great point of attraction. The population is still increas ing, and as in almost every case people are doing extremely well, there is every prospect of its becoming still more so. Buildings are daily in course of erection, and we understand that three or four appli. cations for publicans' licenses have been submitted, it being the opinion of old hands that there will be steady working throughout the winter. We have seen a hole from which 300 ounces was extracted, and many others from which large amounts have been realised; and it appears that gold is obtained in remunerative quantities wherever the ground is bottomed. RBID'S CRKBK.-We were Jast week, through a report pretty generally circulated, led into making a statement regarding this portion of these diggings which we have since learnt from competent aut...

Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. MY WIFE'S COUSIN. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 14 April 1855

ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. MY WIFE'S COUSIN. Decked with shoes of blackest polish, And with shirt as white as snow, After matutinal breakfast To my daily desk I go; First a fond salute bestowing On my Mary's ruby lips, Which, perhaps, may be rewarded With a pair of playful nips. All day long across the ledger Still my patient pen I drive, Thinking what a feast awaits me In my happy home at five j In my small, one-storied Eden, Where my wife awaits my coming, And our solitary handmaid Mutton chops with care is crumbing. When the clock proclaims my freedom, Then my hat I seize and vanish; Every trouble from my bosom, Every anxious care I banish. Swiftly brushing o'er the pavement, At a furious pace I go, Till I reach my darling dwelling In the wilds of Pimlico. e Mai'y, wife, where art thou, dearest ?' Thus I cry, while yet afar ; Ah ! what scent invades my nostrils ?T 'Tis the smoke of a cigar ! Instantly into the parlour Like a maniac 1 haste, ,, And I find a young Life-Guardsman, With ...

THE "Ovens and Murray Advertiser." "This is true liberty, when free-born men, having to advise the public, may speak free."—Milt, trans. Eury. SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 1855. COLONIAL ENFRANCHISEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 14 April 1855

THE awtir Slirbcittscr." " This is true liberty, when free-born men, having to advise the public, may speak free."-Milt, trans. Eury. SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 1855. COLONIAL ENFRANCHISEMENT. (From the London Times.) It is now fourteen years since this ' country entered on a new course of policy with regard to the Canadas, and the ex periment may now be said to be fully and completely worked out. The change was a bold and striking one, conceived in a spirit of almost epigrammatical antithesis to our former policy. The old system was, in lew words, to monopolise the trade, to interfere with the local concerns of the colony, and to absorb its patronage, and, exchange for all this, to keep up, at a great expense, a military establishment. The new system has consisted in precisely the contrary of all this-in throwing open the trade of the whole world to our de pendencies, in leaving every ofiice of trust and emolument-except that of the Governor-General, which serves as the connecting link be...
