Literature. POLITICAL ECONOMY. (Continued from our last). QUESTION OF CHEAP PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 21 April 1855

Literature. POLITICAL ECONOMY. (Continued from our last). QUESTION 01' CHEAP PRODUCTION. It is of importance to observe that, while these subdivisions produce the effect just stated, the effect also tends to repro duce the subdivisions. If watches were not cheap, and generally accessible, there would be very few sold; consequently, perhaps, there would be 110 establishment for watchmaking where so many as one hundred and one persons could be em ployed. Twenty persons, perhaps, at the utmost would be engaged in the whole operation-would, of course, work at comparative disadvantage-and render a greater price indispensable. Unreflecting persons are sometimes heard to say, that it were better things in general were dear than cheap. But it is shown that, unless we consent to the abstract advantage of the utmost possible cheapness in all things, we abandon the very advantages which the nature of social life hold out to us, want articles which we could otherwise have, and obstruct employme...

GOLD REPORT. For the month of March, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 21 April 1855

GOLD REPORT, For the month of March, 1855. The price of gold during the month has ranged from 75s. to 76a. 6d. During the latter part of the montli the market \v;is rendered verv unsteady by the anprehen sion of the gold export duty being passed, so as to include the gold for shipment in the merchant brokers' hands at the time ; hut since the bill has been brought in, it seems to be the wish of the government to be liberal on thi< point, and allow ample time for parties to clear out. The quantity of gold brought by escort has licen, daring the month, 120 723 ounces 10 dwt?., whilst the gold cleared during the same time amounted t-i 161.880 ounc»s 1*2 dwts., which latter item, together with the gold, leaving the colony of which ihere is no record, and which would amount to about, 20.000 ounces would m'ike the. weekly average yield be about 45,000 ounces. During the month our prospects have been improving; for whilst the opening of new fields is sm.11 attracting the attenti...

AMONG the numerous subjects which have for some time past agitated the poli tical mind of the colony, there is not, perhaps, one of more decided importance, and which offers greater difficulties in adjustment, than the matter of the control of the Chinese Immigration, which at present engrosses the attention of all classes. The opinions of the public on this point are varied and conflicting some call aloud for the immediate expul sion of those Chinamen and Tartars who have already arrived, and for the total suppression of further Chinese Immigra tion ; others, less arbitrary, are anxious that stringent measures should be adopted for bringing these dangerous people more immediately under the grasp of the law ; while a few philanthropy and humanity mongers protest against interference with t...

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 21 April 1855

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. We have nothing of importance to com- municate since our last, concerning these gold fields. ' The Rush ' on Spring Creek, to which we have so frequently alluded of later still continues in the ascendant. The population has considerably increased during the past week, and though we have not to chronicle the discovery of any enor- mous nuggets, we hear on all hands that the ground about here is very rich, and that many are realising considerable amounts. New ground is constantly being   opened, and we hear that holes have been sunk almost in the very stores and tents ; and it is probable that ere long many of these buildings recently erected will   have to give way to those in search of the precious metal. All is progressing very favourably. As we predicted, there has been a slight reaction at Snake Valley ; a small 'rush' having taken place higher up the creek. Our prospects here are cer...
