BALLAARAT. At Ballanrat there lias been n rupture between the Local Court and the Government; on the question as to tl>e admission of lawyers to plead in the court, and in consequence of the Colonial Secretary's letter five of tlio members resigned.

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 20 October 1855

TASMANIA. The Meeting at the Circus. — For the honour of humanity, we are glad to say that seldom, if ever, has party spirit developed itself in such a malignant shape as that ex hibited by those who endeavoured through the medium of noise and violence to prevent free discussion on the occasion of the late meeting. Let us not be understood to include in this category the respectable opponents of the move ment, such as Mr. W. V, Smith, Mr. Horton, and two or three others. These, we are-cer tain, wero perfectly prepared to enter into a qniet, calm debate upon the merits of the question ; and were as much disgusted at the rioting which prevented it as any present. The conduct, however, of the ruffianly gang who, by their noise and clamour, essayed to prevent the words of the speakers being heard, would have been simply contemptible, were it not that the measures which they had recourse to re quired a far more serious tone of comment. Finding that all their efforts must in the end prove...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 20 October 1855

SYDNEY. The nlmost sudden and . unexpected death of Sir Thomas Mitchell will create a profound impression throughout the colony. It appears that, in the performance of his duties, this lamented gentleman was lately employed in a surveying expedition—a task scarcely befitting his length of years and service. In consequence of exposure, he was seized with bronchitis, and yesterday he died from a suffusion of the lungs. Sir Tiiosias Mitchell was an officer of more than forty years standing. He was on the staff of the Duke of Wellington in the Peninsular War; and received a medal of five clasps, for the services on the field of battle. He was entitled by seniority to the ran J; of Major-Gcneral. 'Sydney Herald.'

ACCIDENTS BY FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 20 October 1855

ACCIDENTS BY FIRE. An interesting nud well got up article on fires and fire insurance appears in a late num ber of the ' Quarterly Review.' As this sub ject is one of peculiar interest to us, situated in a township so liable to destruction by fire, wo have thought it desirable to make some ex tracts which may be found useful as well as interesting. Our Fire Brigade lias been one of the best organised movements amongst us. It has been exceedingly woll supported, but there is still room for increased public support, and we trust that the inhabitants will see the desirability of unanimously supporting a body whose object is the preservation of their pro perty. The London Fire Brigade was formed in 1883, to obviate the inconvenience of di vided force which in the United States is seen sometimes to develop itself in rival engines, drawing up on the road to a fire, and their conductors exchanging shots from revolvers. In London eaeli parish is obliged to keep two engines, in all about 300...

MOUNT BLACKWOOD. OUR DIGGINGS. (From the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 20 October 1855

MOUNT BLACKWOOD. OUR DIGGINGS.   (From the Star.) BALLAN REEF.—Ballan Camp Reef, known by the name of Cameron's and Butcher's Reef, is situated about two miles west of Golden Point, and claims are already marked out six miles south of Ballan Camp, and about two north. The greatest activity prevails on the summit of the hills north and south of each ; but many of the lower parts are at present unclaimed. Specimens have been found on the surface, and at various depths. A Mr. Mould, who first discovered gold on the first hill south of Ballan Camp, has been sinking extensively for nine weeks, but has not yet struck the reef, the " leaders" having in this case proved very deceptive, terminating abruptly. The quartz from the " leaders" is expected to pay expenses when crushed; this, however, will be tested very shortly, as an engine is being erected in the gully on the side of the first hill south of Ballan Camp. This engine is called "Hayes' patent eccentric motion," having ...

THE BENDIGO ADVERTISER. FROGRESSION, OUR RIGHTS, AND OUR RESOURCES. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1855. ALIENATION OF AURIFEROUS LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 23 October 1855

THE BENDIGO ADYERTISEB. FROQRESSION, OCR RIGHTS, AND OUR RESOURCES. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1855. ALIENATION OP AURIFEROUS LANDS. The recent " difficulty" at the Clunos Dig gings has opened up a question which we are confident will in future be the fertile cause of dissatisfaction if not of disturbance among the mining community. The matter is not dis posed of by saying that the land was sold and there's an end of it. Unfortunately it is on that very account that there is not an end of it. British ideas of the rights of property are so rigid that we are disposed to regard with pious horror the slightest infraction of them. Therefore when stalwart diggers show an indisposition to relinquish possession of the wonderful quartz reef at Clunes when the owner of the property, Mr. Macdonald, warns them off, all the lovers of peace and order whose life runs-on in (he unvarying groove of routine, are shocked beyond expres .sion, and with the '• Argus' at their liead pre •disposed to regard blue...

THE BENDIGO DILEMMA. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 23 October 1855

THE 13ENDIG0 DILEMMA. The difficulty of obtaining suitable repre sentatives for Bendigo, answering all the re quirements of the law, has suggested to many persons the ic]ea of qualifying a digger's mem ber or of electing sm unqualified person, and thereby protesting against the property quali fication required for members. Being at the antipodes it is only in keeping that there should be an incongruity in the qualifications of men likely to he candidates for legislative honors. In England the property qualiliea tion may keep out many able men from the House of Commons, but a sufficiency of able members can bo found possessing the necessary amount of property. 13tit on the Victoria Goldfields, strange to say, the case is 'widely different, although money is so abundant. Ilerp, it would seem, that men qualified by their property lack tho talent or the represen tative ability, and those who have the ability have no other recommendation. Talent and poverty have sworn compact—wealth and ...
