Company's steamer Madras which arrived with the overland mail on the 14th instant, has brought us intelligence from London, to the 9th; from Malta, to the 14th; and from Alexandria, to the 19th November. Sebastopol has been the scene of the most appaling carnage ! And the town itself is almost reduced to ruins! At the latest date Sebastopol was not taken, but the signal for the assault was hourly expected, and so general was that eager ness throughout the attacking forces for obtaining the post of honour, and " seeking the bubble reputation at the cannon's mouth" that.it had been decided that the different regiments should draw lots. There was a comparative ces sation of hostilities in the Baltic for the season. The Eu...

ALEXANDRIA. '(.PROM OVa OWN CORRESPONDENT. November 19lh, 1854. Since "the last mail went through Egypt to Australia, three great events have taken place at the seat of war in the Black Sea -the landing of the Allied English, French, and Turkish troops, without op position in the Crimea, on the 14th Sep tember ; a great battle fought between the Allies and the Russians on the banks of the river Alma, twelve miles to the north of Sebastopol, on the 20th Septem ber, when the Russians were most signally . defeated; and the commencement of the siege of Sebastopol on the 17th October. The latest intelligence received here from the Crimea reaches to the 4th inst., when Sebastopol was not yet taken, but the siege was being carried on with the utmost vigor, several reinforcements of French and Turkish troops having joined the besiegers.

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855
Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE ; OVENS DISTRICT. THE MOUNT GIBBO GOLD FIKLD. With reference to the rumoured discovery of a large gold field in the vicinity of Mount Gibbo-mentioned in the last issue of this Journal-we are in a position to state that there are little or no grounds for the report. A correspondent writes,-" On my way here (Snowy Creek), I met a digger return ing from the Omeo and Gibbo River, and afterwards a party of three men from the same places, and as they were un acquainted with each other, and their state ments agreed in every respect, 1 am induced to place the fullest credence in the informa tion they afforded me. In consequence of favourable accounts from some prospectors, a ' rush ' took place from the Livingston to the Gibbo River, about four miles above the junction with the Mitta Mitta;-indeed, it appears that at that time Omeo was altogether deserted-and about 80 persons were at work at one time. I have since heard, however, that t...
PUBLIC MEETING AT BEECHWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 27 January 1855
PUBLIC MEETING AT BEECII WORTH. IN accordance with a notice placarded about the various gold fields of this district, a public meeting was held in the Assembly Rooms, on Saturday last, the 20th instant, for the purpose of adopting a petition to His Excellency, praying that a Commission of Inquiry might be sent up to investigate the various grievances of the miners on the Ovens gold fields, The meeting, we regret to say, was but thinly attended, and a feeling of distrust with regard to its object appeared to have taken possession of the minds of many present. MR. C. WILLIAMS having been called to the chair, explained that the object of the meeting was to induce the Government to institute inquiries into the actual state of these gold fields, with a view to framing equitable regulations for their government. The chairman alluded to the small extent of the present claim allowed* as being one of the principal grievances of the miner in this district, and expressed his opinion that it wa...

THE MISHAP. " Why urt thou weeping, sister? Why is thy cheek so pale ? Look up, dear Jane, and tell me What is it thou doat nil ? " I know thy will is froward, Thy feelings warm and keen, And that that Augustus Howard For weeks has not been seen. " I know how much you loved him ; But I know thou dost not weep For him ;-for though his passion be, His purse is noways deep. " Then tell me why those teardrops; What means this woful mood ? Say, has the tax-collector Been calling, and been rude ? " Or has that hateful grocer, The slave ! been here to-day ? Of course he had, by morrow's noon, A heavy bill to pay ! '. Come, on thy brother's bosom Unburden all thy woes; Look up, look up, sweet sister; There, dearest, blow your nose." " Oh, John, 'tis not the grocer.

Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. TO —. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 27 January 1855
Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. Cursed be the Fates whose cruel cords Have bound thee to a heart of stone ; Cursed be the priest who spoke the words Decreeing I should sigh alone. For since I met that am'rous glance A glance that reads my inmost soul I cannot choose but mourn the chance That robs mo when I reach the goal. But as I may not call thee mine, I dare not breathe the words of love; I lay my grief at beauty's shrine, And pray that we may meet above. What tho' my words to thee are cold ! My heart is racked with passion's fire ; Love's soft expressions I withhold, And strive to curb each fond desire. Yet does thy gift-now by my side Convey this welcome thought to me, That tho' by fate my tongue is tied, My pen should, not the less, be free

Literature. TOE PEACE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 27 January 1855
Literature. TOE PEACE QUESTION. (From Chambers Edinburgh Journal.) Sorik people assert so loudly tliat there always will be war upon earth, that one might almost suspect them of a dislike to | peace. On the other hand, some of the friends of peace are so sanguine about the realisation of their favourite views, as almost to create a diversion in favour of war. Perhaps just views lie between. It may be quite true that mankind m general are as yet far from that moral state which would put an end to war; but we may nevertheless say, let there be as little war as possible; and we may encourage all rational plans for reducing the likelihood of its recurrence. There is surely a prudent and sober course for a lover of peace, which should give offence to none, but simply ad vance the cause he advocates. When practical people scoff at the pro posed courts of arbitration, they forget that there is a system nearly equivalent in ope ration at this moment. When a dispute arises between two states...
