Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF TIIE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 28 April 1855

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF TIIE OVENS DISTRICT. SPUING CUKKK.-We are happy at being still able to report favourably of mining affairs on this creek. At the 'Rush' everything is progressing favourably, par ties are still daily arriving. On Wednesday last, the day for granting licenses, four ap plications were submitted for publicans' licenses at this place, two of which were granted forthwith ; the remaining two being postponed, one on account of a charge of ' sly grog-selling ' having been preferred against the applicant, and the other owing to the house not as yet being in a sufficiently advanced state as to ac commodation, &c. Numerous applications for refreshmedt licenses were granted. Buildings of all descriptions are still going on, and we hear that the yield of gold stil continues as promisfng as ever.

LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 28 April 1855

LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS. The Annie Wilson brings three days later intelligence from England. The Times and other newspapers are filled with the most gloomy accounts of the state of our troops in the Crimea. We extract the following heads of intelligence from the Argus; The most important announcement is that of the resignation by Lord John Russell of his oflice as President of the Council. His lordship not being prepared to resist a motion for inquiry into the conduct of the war, regarded resignation as the only course open to him. Lord John had wished that the conduct of the war should be entrusted to Lord Palmer ston,' rather than to the Duke of New- j castle; and in his speech expresses his satisfaction at having been informed that the arrangement proposed by him was likely, at last, to be adopted. From Sebastopol there are fuller details of the privations of the army, and of the active operations in which they are busied. The progress'of negociations for peace does not hold out muc...

THE RAZORS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 5 May 1855

THE RAZORS. ' A fellow in a market town, Most musical, cried razors up and down, And ofFer'd twelve for eighteen-pence, Which certainly seem'd wondrous cheap. And for the money, quite a heap, As ev'ry man would buy, with cash and sense. A country bumpkin the great offer heard: Poor Hodge, who suffer'd by a broad black beard, That {seem'd a shoe-brush stuck be neath his nose : With cheerfulness the eighteen-pence he paid, And proudly to himself, in whispers, said, ' This rascal stole the razors, I suppose. No matter If the fellow he a knave. Provided that the razors shave, It certainly will be a monstrous prize.' So home the clown, with good his fortune went, Smiling in heart and soul content, And quickly soap'd himself to ears and eyes. Being well lather'd from a dish or tub, Hodge now began with grinning pain to grub, Just like a hedger cutting furze : 'Twas a vile razor !-then the next lie try'd All were impostors-cAh,' Hodge sigh'd, ' I wish my eighteen-pence within my purse.'

Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 5 May 1855

Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. WOMAN. In infancy, from woman's breast, We draw the food by Nature given ; She lulls our childish pangs to rest, And cheers us as a beam from heaven. When woman smiles, she lias the power To heal our grief and calm our fea'rs ; Should sickness wound, should fortune lour, She shares our sorrows, dries our tears. And she can soothe the cares of age, As rolls time's furrowing course along; Can cheer us with the classic page, Or charm us with the magic song. When stretched upon the bed of death Departing nature struggling lies, At that dread pause-when the next breath May waft our spirit to the skies ; When the soul views the narrow verge, Close on the confines of the grave, And now it longs its flight to urge Nor wishes for an arm to save, Who cheers that dreary scene of woe ? Who speaks of peace, and joy, and love ? Who Avipes the teardrops as they flow ? 'Tis woman, sent from heaven above. 'Tis she receives our parting sigh, 'Tis she who hears our lates...

Literature. POLITICAL ECONOMY. (Continued from our last). PROVISIONS AGAINST IT RECOMMENDED TO WORKMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 5 May 1855

Literature. POLITICAL ECONOMY. (Continued from our last). PROVISIONS AGAINST IT RECOMMENDED TO WORKMEN. It may also be represented -with some force, that the employing classes are not alone responsible for the consequences of abbreviated labour. The employed may reasonably be looked to, since they are most nearly concerned, for an exertion of some kind or other, to alleviate what ap pears to be an unavoidable calamity. By ' Winging up part of their families to differ ent trades-by storing up a little in Savings Banks or Friendly Societies, during a period of good employment-by opening their eyes to coining machinery, and looking out in time for a retreat much.might be done to soften the calamity before it arrived. After it does arrive, the proceedings of the workmen in many cases might be amended. We hold it not creditable, for instance, to the cotton weavers in the west of , Scotland, that, after their art was destroyed by the power-looms, they should have clung so long to its redu...

IT .is not without considerable satisfaction that we observe the move that is being made in the Legislative Council in favour of increased reprcsentaion. We have always been of opinion that gold field legislation could not be otherwise than what it has been throughout-defective and useless in the highest degree, as long as the miners themselves were unrepre sented in the Council. A bill to extend the electoral districts is now before the house, and will proba bly receive no material opposition. Although we hail with pleasure the first evidence of dawning reason on the slum bering minds of the Government, evinced by the step that is now being taken, we do not feel altogether satisfied with the terms on which the boon-or rather the right-is to be granted. It is proposed to increase ...
