Literature. POLITICAL ECONOMY. (Continued from our last). PROFITS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 12 May 1855

Literature. POLITICAL ECONOMY. (Continued from our last). The object of the capitalist is profit that of the workman is wages. In common speech, an employer or trader is conceived to aim at profit alone, though he may also exert himself actively. But, in reality, every such employer or trader is a work man besides, and in so far as he is so, a part of gain should be ranked as wages, while only that should be deemed profit which accrues to him as a remuneration for his disbursement of capital. On the same principle, that part of the gains of any operative which arises from his pos sessing tools or acquired skill, should be ranked as profit, seeing that it arises i'rom capital, while only that (generally much larger) portion should be considered as wages, -which he earns by the actual exercise of his natural strength and inge nuity. As capital is the result of former indus try the gatherings ef either some exist ing man, or of some deceased person who bequeathed it to him-and may thus...

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 12 May 1855

LATEST" ENGLISH NEwfT^ The clipper ship Boomerang, with the early February mails, has not yet arrived, but we are already iri possession of news up to the 4th of February, the day previ ous to her leaving, by the Francis Ilenty, which latter vessel sailed on the Jth ; but our Melbourne contemporaries have been unable to secure any papers later than the 'Jth, they having been smuggled away by the passengers. It however appears that the ship Walter Ilood, from London to Sydney, was spoken with ; from which ship intelligence of date Feb. /th was re ceived. At that time it was stated that Prussia had joined Russia ; that 25,000 Spaniards ancl 15,000 Sardinians had set out for the Crimea, to reinforce the Allied army ; that the intelligence from the Crimea was of no more cheering charac ter ; and that no administration had been formed. The Times' correspondence from Sebas topoi is still of a very gloomy nature. Up to the 12th of January the weather con tinued very severe, and it was calc...

BENDIGO. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 12 May 1855

BENDIGO. (From the Bendigo Advertiser.) Tint DIGGINGS.-The water on the Bendigo is again becoming insufficient for mining purposes; the puddling machines along the creek, particularly in the direction of Kangaroo Flat, are once more idle, while the diggers in many places can scarcely obtain sufficient water to wash a tub of stulF. A heavy shower is anxiously looked for. We bear that several parties at Myer's Flat are doing well; a considerable number of miners are located there, and* much ac .vity prevails. During the past \ .week a rush took place near the Hibernian Hotel, "but, with the exception of a few holes on the roadside,, it proved sbicer ground. The old ground in Devonshire Gully and Sailor's Gully is again being turned over; the riches of the latter seem to be inexhaustible. On Kangaroo Flat, now almost deserted, a fortunate hatter a few clays since managed to extract nearly four pounds weight of gold from an old hole, but such lucky finds are unfortunately like angels vi...

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 12 May 1855

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. SPRING CHEEK. -? Mining operations are becoming somewhat dull on this creek, the c Hush' at the Junction not proving so remunerative as was anticipated. There has been a decrease in the population, but we still hear of many doing very well. At Roper's Hill, where we mentioned in our last a rush had taken place, some parties have been very successful. THREE-MILK CREEK.-There has been a rush in this direction. About 300 people are now employed, opening new ground, which, we understand, promises very well. Two stores have been erected. SNAKE VALLEY.-The former occu pants of this locality still continue to re turn, and things are beginning to resume a steady appearance. KEID'S CHEEK.-There has been an increase in the population at the ' Wool shed and we have been informed that a private party are about establishing a stsam-engine for mining purposes. Others are engaged in cutting a drain, to turn the water from the c...

CRESWICK. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 12 May 1855

CRESWICK. / CFrom the Weekly Chronicle.) Gold continues firm at 74s. 9d. per ounce. Trade generally has experienced no material change since our last. Carriage is on the rise, but as most of the store keepers have what they consider their winter stock either up or on the road, no general rise in the price of goods has as yet taken place. During the week much rain has fallen, which lias tended to retard digging operations ; still the yield is most satisfactory and encoura'ging. The excitement that was so markedly manifest respecting the order for the aboli tion of the Creswick Gold-office, has parti ally died away, owing to information re ceived from Melburne that sucli order would not be carried out. Still a strong feeling against the Government who could cause such unnecessary alarm is generally ex pressed. The proposed Enfranchised Extension Bill has given general dissatisfaction, and an almost universal impression appears to prevail that it were better to remain unre presented th...

THK Number of Members Increase Bill is now fairly before the House, but has assumed-in what, we must own, is rather an unaccountable manner-a different form from what it at first appeared in. The recent discussion on this important topic in the Legislative Council was, in itself, so generally singular, and, in one particular case, so ludicrously absurd, that we cannot pass it by without remark. Is will be remembered that it was origi nally proposed to increase the Council by six members for the Gold Fields, four of whom were to be elected by the people, .and two to be nominated by the govern ment. The few first clauses were read and assented to, without opposition, and Avoca added to the list of newly-created districts ; when, to the surprise of most people, and to the consternation of the squat...

OUR INTERNAL RESOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 12 May 1855

OUR INTERNAL RESOURCES. The sudden and extraordinary advance ment of the colony of Victoria in a com mercial point of view has for some time been a subject of universal surprise ; and its ultimate prosperity and stability a matter of careless discussion and vague speculation. Many reasons have been urged in support of the affirmative ; and, on the other hand, many favourable to the negative side of the question. Not the least among the latter is the assertion-so generally entertained as to have already become a received axiom that the colony itself is deficient in natural advantages ; that the character of the country is such as to render a cheap and perfect system of communication .with the interior extremely difficult, if not impossible ; and, consequently, that vast tracts of available lands must remain com paratively valueless, while the sea coast and a few favoured spots alone will attract the enterprise and industry of the colonists. It is singular that men of sense should be ...
