MININ G.IN (FRno oem owN CednOESONDENT.) INVEBELL, Tars DAr. A. large and well represen?tod meeting for the purpose of forming a 'prospecting Association to search for diamonds and other minerals was held last night at the Telegraph Hotel. After preliminary conversation regarding the mineral re sources of the district and other mining topics,. the company was formed, and three directors appointed-viz., W. Tudor, J. Onus, and G. T. T. Butler, with Joseph Morrow as treasurer, and P. C. Wells, secretary. Mr. Vernon Becke, who has been largely instrumental in arousing an active interest in the movement, was appointed to take charge of the first prospecting party. The large" number of applications received for an interest in the Association renders it probable that a' second party, under the same auspices, wil! be immediately formed. We hope very shortly to hear of tangible results from the labours of the prospectors.
COUNTRY NEWS. GOULBURN, JANUARY 5. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 6 January 1886
COUNTRY NEWS. (e0sor OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) GOULBURN, JANUARY 5. A very narrow escape from violent death occurred at Yass a day or two, since, particulars of which have only just come to hand. Canon Faunee, his wife, infaniit, and a young lady who was visiting them, were sitting in a summer-resort at the rear of the house, when a storm arose, and the canon heard a crash behind the summer-house. He told his wife and the visitor to run to'the house, and they had not left their former position many secpnds when about four tons of timber from a willow tree adjacent fell upon the summer house. The escape was an almost mira culous one. The Hon. L. F. Heydon met with a great reception at 'Yass this morning, where he arrived by the mail train. He was met at the' rilway station by a large number of 'supporters, and escorted into town. The Goulburis Minstrels have handed over to the blind:man, Thomas Ford, the sum of £20, the result of: the late enter tainment given for his benefit. A half-...
CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 6 January 1886
CONCERT. A concert .in aid of the widow and children of the late Mr. Harry Keefe was given in the Protestant Hall last evening, J. H. Davies, Esq., presiding. In thefirst part Mr. Wesley received great applause for the excellent manner in which he sang " Maid of Athens." A comic song by Mr. Willie Christian was also well received. A recitation by Mr. J. H. Rainford was given in that gentleman's usual excellent style. Mr.Frank Phillips sang,"I dreamt my little boy of thee," with appropriate expression, and being enthusiastically en cored, sang "Killarney." "The. Flag of All Nations" was beautifully ren dered by Miss Ahern, who was com pelled to give an encore. Mr. Chris. Diastella appeared in an original specialit6, "Lightning Changes," but it would have been better appreciated had he omitted some of the "biz." Pro fessor Benson Lees greatly amused and astonished the audience in his "Temple of Magic." The second part contained some really good songs, which were well given, and the ev...
LAST MOMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 6 January 1886
. LAST MOMENT.. The distribution of the curioa collected by the late New Guinea expedition be tween the several colonies who bore the expense-New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland-has been nearly completed, and the men are now packing; their respective shares away in boxes. Our Newcastle correspondent wires that the Melbourne Wharf Labourers' strike is having a disastrous effect in Newcastle. The Lambton, strike continues; but; rumours were in circulation in Newcastle yesterday that the strike would end: that day. It is not often that the mere discovery of a snake is thought worthy of' special mention, yet the finding of a carpet snake in the.granidscand on the Ellerslio (N.Z.) Racecourse has been' deemed by our Auckland correspondent to be of sufficient interest to form the topic of a special cablegram.

THE PREMIER IN MUDGEE. MUDGEE, TUESDAY 3 P.M. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 6 January 1886
THE PREMIER IN MUDGEE. 'oBr OVa 0W5 REPORTEB.) MTUDGEE, TUsEDAY 3 P.e. Whatever may be the opinions of Sir -John Robertson's critics in Sydney and elsewhere, there is' no gainsaying- the fact that his assumption of the Premiership is 'very popular in Mudgee. No prince returning to his subjects after a long absence was ever more enthusiastically welcomed than was Sir John by the people of that electorate; which has ever proved faithful to him in the hours of political defeat or dangers. : Thirty years ago Sir John Robertson was elected for Mudgeo under circumstances very similar to those under which he was elected to-day, and .it has on several occasions proved its fidelity to him when, for party reasons, he had been induced to offer his services to other constituencies. In -fact, Sir John .Robertson is the uncrowned King of 3udgee, and he would indeed be a bold politician who endeavoured to wrest the sceptre from him. When the train arrived at Rylestone, which is on the border of th...
THE STONEMASONS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 6 January 1886
THE STONEMASONS. Last niight a meeting of the central committee of the Stonemasons' Society was held at the Swan-with-Two-Necks, when Mr. Ferrier read a letter just to band from the Adelaide Stonemasons' Society, which stated that no men could' be got frond there for Mr. Jennings' job, as those out of work were all Society men, and that they anticipated a revival of trade very soon, which would give work to all; At present there were no masons available in, that city. The letter con cluded with an assurance that the Sydney men had nothing to fear from the Adelaide masons. Yesterday morning only eight of Mr. Jcenniig's men who signed the strike list were employed, but there is a 'job to be started on Manly Beach by another contractor this week, which will employ 12 men, and nearly all the men on strike have been promised work. Plenty of subscriptions are forthcoming from the masons who are at work to support those on strike, so' that the funds of the society remain untouched, and are...

THE DAY'S DOINGS. A third edition of the Globe will be pub lished shortly after 4 o'clock, containing -the latest local news and telegrams from all parts of the world. The third edition matter will be placed on our eighth page. The Bendigo Independefn characterises the present Victorian Government as being "the vilest tricksters and the greediest combination ever seen on the Treasury Benches." The Melbourne plasterers are sanguine, our Melbourne correspondent says, that their demands will be acceded to. It will be remembered that they struck for a 44-hours' week at ls. 4jd. per hour, instead of one at is. 3d. A very extensive bush fire is raging near Tocumwal. It has already travelled several miles, and has destroyed a great quantity of pasture. The hot weather here for the past two or three days seems to have been experi enced in an intensified degree in Mel bourne. Not only (says our Melbourne correspondent) has the heat been scorch ing, but the water supply has become so deficien...
