QUARTZ MINING ASSOCIATION, !In accordance with an advertisement to that effect, a public meeting was held at the Bendigo Hotel, on Mon day evening last. Between 100 and 100 persons were present, of whom the majority appeared to • be Germans. The greatest unanimity and order prevailed "during (lie proceedings. The chair was occupied by Mr. Pollard, who explained the object of the Association in calling : the meeting, and requested the secretary to read a me morial setting forth the dissent of the meeting to many of the regulations proposed by the Local Court for the control of quartz mining. The reading of the memorial was accompanied with general applause. On its sub siding, Mr. Colin, in a brief speech, proposed its adop tion, which Mr. Burrows, after addressing a few words to the meeting, seconded. On the Chairman calling for a show of hands, all were held up in the affirmative. Mr. Burrows then proposed a resolution expressive of the concurrence of the meeting with the increased ...

REVIEW. PETEB PAPINEAU'S -PAMPHLET. We have before us Peter Papineau's fifth letter to Mr. John Bull. It is a reply to a series of letters.whicli were published in the ' Argus' under the heading of " Pup for Peter," in whicli the writer endeavored to controvert the arguments advanced by Papineau in his former pamphlet. In that pamphlet, to use. his own words, lie " denounced the existing land system as"a robbery upon the man of small capital—as keeping land put of cultivation, and as impoverishing the country by making us dependent upon foreigners for our food to the extent of some two millions and a-lialf a-year"—he exposed the gross inaccuracies of llitf census, and the ingenious mechanism of the New Constitution, invented " to deprive three-fourths of the people of Victoria of the franchise, and throw their lands into the hands of the monicd interest"—he pro tested against the prevailing system of taxation under whicli " the working digger paid four times as much taxation as the ...

THE BENDISO ADVERTISER. FBOOitEssiOK, onn mains, and oiiu besoorces. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1855. ECCENTRICITIES OF THE LOCAL COURT. The gentlemen composing the Local Court seem inclined to afford the public considerable matter for comment. With every wish in the world to think favorably of the nine elect of the diggers, and to support them as far as possible, we lind ourselves irresistibly chal lenged to notice gross blunders, and ludicrous exhibitions which must seriously impair the usefulness of the Court by rendering it con temptible in the eyes of the public. Let them not, however, suppose that because we are com pelled to find fault, therefore we never see anything to commend. So far from this being the case, we really believe that our Court will set an example to all the others on the gold fields by its discriminate legislation for the re quirements of tl\e diggers, and its iudicions provision for the fair development of capital and enterprise, without interfering with the r...

MELBOURNE (From our own Correspondent) September 1. The election for North Baurko absorbs, at this moment, the attention of the public. Every day, in a " fa&lt;:on de purler " presents a new candidate., Dr. Haller, Mr. Lynch, and Mr. Terment, are now added to the list, and in the political melee occasioned by this multipli city of aspirants to fill the seat left vacant by the resignation of Mr. Annand, tho political "quid nuncs" are completely at fault as to the result. Doctor Enibling " prima facie '' had the best chance, but the meeting at Rich mond, and his infelicitous financial schemo of taxation, put before the electors by Mr. Hender son, have, to use a sporting phrase, completely " knocked him out of time."

THE DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 September 1855
THE DIGGINGS. An extraordinary amount of activity and energy is at present manifested by the miners on this goldfield, both in the alluvial and the quartz workings. The exhaustion of Bendigo seems as far off as it did two years ago. As fast as old ground is worked out new ground is opened, and the puddling machines come in to complete the work begun by the ordinary diggings. In every direction we hear of new &nbsp; &nbsp; patches being rushed, and turning out well, with the usual capriciousness of luck. In the gullies bordering on the Whipstick Scrub, the diggers are gradually making advances into that dense waste of underwood, and finding sufficient to repay them for their trouble. There has been an importaut rush at Myers's Flat. The lead at the bottom of Peg Leg and Sailor's Gullies has been struck again. It is now found to take a turn to the left, heading for Myers's Creek. A nugget, weighing 14 ozs. has been obtained, besides several smaller specimens. We have s...
COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. SANDHURST GOLD MARKET 'Advertiser' Office, Tuesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 September 1855
COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. SANDHURST GOLD MARKET "Advertiser " Office. Tuesday Evening. Gold still rates at £3 16s. 6d. per oz., with a downward ten- &nbsp; dency. The Escort started to town to-day, with 10,715 ozs. 10 dwts., and £2,092 in cash. The deposits for the week were 539 0zs. The increase in our gold this week is quite cheering. The ' Melbourne Herald ' speaks respecting the anticipated fall ; — " The price of gold has declined to-day fully 3d. per ounce, and a further decline is looked for, as the banks find that more is coming into their establishments than suits their purpose. Under these circumstances, the alteration in the rate of exchange to which we alluded a few days back, may be daily expected to occur. With a lower price ranging for the precious metal, we shall find an in- creased demand from Sydney for the local mint."
QUARTZ VEINS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BENDIGO ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 September 1855
QUARTZ VEIN'S. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BENDIGO ADVERTISER. Sir,—A letter appeared in your issue of last Wednesday, treating of the interesting subject of quartz reefs geologically. &nbsp; As I do not pretend to comprehend Mr. Grange's theory, I shall not attempt to meddle with it, but he tells us that " there are two or more sorts of quartz," and, for brevity's sake, parti- cularises two, which he calls granite and sandstone quartz. It being his firm belief that the latter description " is not gold- bearing to any payable extent, " he would confer a great favor on a large number of your readers, if he would explain what are the peculiarities by which the one may be distinguished from the other. — I am, Sir, your obedient servant, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A QUARTZ PROSPECTOR.
MOUNT ALEXANDER DIGGINGS. (From the 'M. A. Mail.) THE DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 September 1855
MOUNT ALEXANDER DIGGINGS. (From the " M. A. Mail.") THE DIGGINGS. &nbsp; The following are items of intelligence to the 20th August. :— MOUNT FRANKLYN.— The heavy rains here have in some degree retarded mining operations. About 400 persons have left for Kangaroo Hill. At Wombat several parties have been very successful. The quartz reefs both there and at Yandoit are paying very well. The engine at Wombat is at work. At the Bald Hill, and about Egan's station, the miners are doing well, and fresh ground constantly opening out. Several parties are now sinking on the race-course. Population, 2800 ; healthy. FRYER'S CREEK.—The population has increased 400 men. The yield of gold continues good from Kan- garoo Hill. Some of the holes bottomed on the crown &nbsp; of the hill have not struck the lead ; this has caused a slight reaction, but many are still arriving. Another part of the hill (soft-sinking) has been rushed, the yield from which has been very great. The hill opp...
