Literature. THE TUGGS'S AT RAMSGATE [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 19 May 1855

Literature. THE TUGGS'S AT R A MSG A TP, By CHARLES DICKENS. Once upon a time there dwelt, in a narrow street on the Surry side of the water, within three minutes walk of old London Bridge, Mr. Joseph Tuggs-a little dark-faced man, with shiny hair, twinkling eyes, short legs, and a body of very considerable thickness, measuring fr.om the centre button of his waistcoat in front, to the ornamental button of his coat behind. The figure of the amiable Mrs. Tuggs. if not perfectly symmetrical, was decidedly comfortable; and the form of her only daughter, the accomplished Miss Charlotte Tuggs, was fast ripening into that state of luxuriant plumpness "which had enchanted the eyes, and capti vated the heart, of Mr. Joseph Tuggs in his earlier days. Mr. Simon Tuggs, his only son, and Miss Charlotte Tuggs's only brother, was as differently formed in body as he was differently constituted in mind, from the remainder of his family. There ?was that elongation in his thoughtful face, and that ten...

Original Correspondence. PREMATURE DEATH FROM QUACKERY. To the Editor of the Ovens and Murray Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 19 May 1855

PREMATURE DEATH FROM QUACKERY. jhn Editor of Ihe Ovens and Murray Advertiser. - Sir,-Influenced by a lively abhorrence of the present representative, and actuated by an ardent concern for the public welfare, I deem it expedient to call your immediate attention regarding the state of quackery on the gold fields. A few weeks ago an American quack attended a child for infla mation of the stomach, when, according to the valid opinion of a well-known medical man, the poor dear thing was actually making its way into eternity from effusion of water into the lateral ventricles of the brain (oh! miserabile visu, et mirable dictu). Such unexpected news, coming to the ears of an affectionate mother, would be quite enough to melt the most flinty heart into I cat's, and blaste her future prospects. I had a conversation with the father, on the subject, and his reply was to me that his dear little thing never gave a smile on its affectionate parents after it had once taken the sedative powder from...

PROGRESS OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 19 May 1855

PROGRESS OF TIIE WAR. j (From Lloyd's Newspaper, 4th March.) A glance at the Allied forces now, or likely to be, within a very short period, before b'ebastopol, will be useful: Fifteen thousand eflicient Piedmontese will speedily be sent to Balaclava, under the command of General La Marmora, a | young and skilful officer, and he is now in t this country making the necessary prepa ratory arrangements with our government. Then there is to be, in British pay, and under officers of the East India company, a contingent of twenty thousand Turks. General Vivian, of the Madras army, hn.i been named general of division of this contingent, with full powers. With the re inforcements we have mentioned, our army before long will amount to a very respec table numerical strength. To say nothing of the Turkish troops at Eupatoria (forty thousand), the total will be in round num bers, forty thousand men in British pay, exclusive of the regiments about to be moved up from the Mediterranean stations, ...

THE Stobcvtiscr." " This is true liberty, when free-born men, having to advise the public, may speak free."-Milt, trans. Eury. SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1855. NAVIGATION OF THE .RIVER GOULBURN. RENEWING the subject of river navigation we would, in the first place, invite atten tion to a few facts connected with the scheme so long and perseveringly prose cuted by Captain Cadell-the navigation of the Murray-and draw a comparison between the advantages to be derived by the colony of Victoria from this under taking, contrasted with those likely to accrue from the proposed navigation of the GOLXBUIIN RIVKH. Without wishing to detract in the least from the merits of the Murray scheme itself, nor to rob the indefatigable projector of one jot of the praise he has so justly earned, we would ask, does the navigation of this river offer any, and what, advantages ] to the colony of Victoria, of sufficient mag nitude to compensate her for the injury ) which the commerce of her principal sea port must su...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 19 May 1855

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. BREAD RIOTS AT LIVERPOOL.-The severe distress in the north has led to some rather serious rioting at Liverpool. Large bands of people paraded the streets, committing occasional devastations, but the bakers' shops were the principal points of attack. About sixty of these poor wretches, principally Irish, were taken into custody. Of course they had all visited the bakers' shops with any inten tion but that of plunder. It was all acci dental, and no harm was meant. They were generally sentenced to some short period of imprisonment. BREAD RIOT IN LONDON.- Shortly after six o'clock on Wednesday evening, about 1000 laborers from the London and St. Katharine's Docks assembled in front of the workhouse of St. Mary's, White chapel, where they remained for a con siderable time, yelling and making the most hideous noises. An attempt was made to force an entrance at the front gates, when they'were informed that no relief could be given until the following morning. Bricks and s...

OFFICIAL DESPATCHKS FROM FIELD' MARSHAL LOUD IlAGLAN. War Department, Feb. 27 Lord Panmure has this day received a despatch arid its enclosures, of which the following are copies, addressed to his Grace the Duke of Newcastle, by Field Marshal Lord Raglan, G.C.B.: Before Sebastopol, Feb. 13. My Lord Duke,- I mentioned to your Grace, in my despatch of the 10th instant, that there had been a return of bad weather, and that the country was again saturated with wet. On Sunday it rained or snowed from morning till night, and the wind was very high ; and though it was fine yesterday, still the ground was in a worse state than I had seen it for some time. The enemy had made no movement. Major-General Jones, Royal Engineers, arrived a few days ago. and is busily en gaged in making himself acquainted with the position occupied by both armies.

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 19 May 1855

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. Our local intelligence must necessarily be very much abridged this week, in conse quence'tof the unexpected arrival of im portant" news from the seat of war. During the last week many rumours have been afloat respecting the new diggings on the Woolshed Creek ; and as some of the reports might, if uncontradicted, be likely to mislead the credulous, we have taken some pains to ascertain the true state of the case. It is by no means true, as has been currently asserted, that £1000 worth of the precious metal was taken out of one vh.oIe in a day. Doubtless the Woolshed diggings" offer'sufiicierit inducement tu en terprising miners to try their fortune on new ground ; and, as far as we are able to learn, those who are at work are doing very well indeed. Things appear to be rather dull at the New Rush, on Spring Creek. Many are leaving for the Three-mile Creek, which has turned out very well indeed lately. The populati...

THE LITERARY AND SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 19 May 1855

THE LITERARY AND SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTE. The importance of education is so univer sally acknowledged, that any arguments to urge its necessity would be simply supere rogatory. There are, nevertheless, many' who, from habit or thoughtlessness, imagine that education ceases so soon as the pupil shall have been released from the finishing school, or the restraint of college lectures; but this idea is most erroneous. The human mind is naturally inquisitive, and possesses an innate hankering after knowledge, either for good or evil; and, moreover, will always find means for gratifying the appetite. There is a trite saying that a youth's education commences' atter leaving school, and this, to a certain extent, is true; hut it should not, on that account, be received as a reason for neglect ing Avhat is of paramount importance-the early cultivation of intellect-and which is. in fact, the foundation whereon the stability of the superstructure must depend.

DEATH OF THE EMPEROR OF RUSSIA. The Government received telegraphic despatches from the Hauge and Berlin, as also from the British Minister at the Hauge, stating that the Emperor of Russia had died on Friday forenoon, March 2nd, between twelve and one o'clock, of apo plexy, after an attack of influenza. The Earl of Clarendon in the House of Lords, and Lord Palmerston in the House of Commonns, made the communication on Friday night to the members of the respective houses amidst the most pro found silence. The Earl of Clarendon said : My Lords, I think it my duty to inform your lord ships of the contents of a telegraphic de spatch, which I received half an hour ago, from her Majesty's minister at the Hauge : "The Emperor of Russia died this morning, between twelve and one o'clock, of apoplexy, after an attack of influenza."
