MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) October 26th, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 30 October 1855

'MELBOURNE, (from OUR QWX CORRKSl'ONDENT.) . October 26tli, 1055. The recent intclljgonce from. Jbiuropc, barren as it lias been of any decisive events, does not appear to have excited "disappointment. The public have been schooled into patience, and have learned to moderate their anticipations of success. It would appear from private letters that the political state of Europe is by 110 ■ means satisfactory, and it is apprehended that new combinations may be entered into,, which may materially embarrass the policy of the allies. The complete neutrality as sumed by Austria, in a great measure imposed upon her through jealousy of Prussia, allows ltussia to bring licr armies pf observation into active service, and in that way increases her powers of resistance, }ind'gives ljcr a larger field for the exercise'of lier influence, and diplomatic skill in other quarters. We bay regard the pro traction of the war as highly probable, unless some unexpected and very decided result be achieved ...

FIERY CREEK. (From the Argus Qonespondcn!.) October 24th. I paid this great rush a visit on Sunday last, and will proceed to give you an account of my journey, and the information I gathered respect ing what is now doing, and its capabilities as a gold-field. And, iirat, as regards the road: leav ing Maryborough, the shortest route is by way of Back Creek, Daisy Hill, to Lnxton, or Burn Bank ns it is more usually called. Tojournevers on horseback or on foot, I would recommend tho left hand track pn leaving Burn Bank, through the Waterloo diggings.' This, to a man unacquainted with the bush, is the nearest road, and saves a good deal of marshy road. Some four miles beyond the Waterloo Flat you first cpriie ujk n the Fiery Creek diggings. The sinking at the commence ment was very shallow, in lket almost surfacing.. It increases in depth as the leads concentrate to wards the lower end of the valley.

YACHANDANDAH. (From a Correspondent of the Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 1 November 1855

YACHANDANDAH. (From a Correspondent of lite Advertiser.) In looking over the many reports from the dif ferent gold-fields of Australia,' I have been sur prised to find so little said about Yacliandandah and its neighborhood. In every published ac count of the gold-fields of the Ovens district, Yacliandandah always appears last, and ' least' noticeable of all. I am decidedly of opinion that it should stand at the head—first to be mentioned and first to be looked after. When we take into consideration the many tons of gold that have been taken from this field, the above assertion is not extravagant. I. have visited all the gold-fields of New South | Wales, and the whole of those of this Colony, and ; in no single instance have I seen the miner so ■ well remunerated for his labor as he is on this | field. When I first visited this locality was in i 1053, in the early part of that year ; it was then i being prospected by a few parties who found that ] the locality was a gold-field of th...

Tlie 'electors of Bendigo have no mean opinion of themselves to judge by the off-hand way in which they put .some gentlemen through their • political catechism.

A kind of "tria juncta in uno"— suggestive of tVe shamrock, ,the Legs'of Man, a three-legged stool, or any other instance—not to speak profanely—of a trinity in unity. -Very little unity, however,, has characterised the suc cession of .meetings, but any,amount of diversity— of beating about the bush, and finding nothing— of great cry and little wool. The mountain has been in labor—the constituency has undergone parturition, and the result is Air. Benson !

S Y D N E Y.

We were .favored with some specimens from the field, and various details «s to its locality and prospects. The specimens humlcd to us were discovered by Mr. Richard Simpson, of the Burnett River, and Mr. Richard Ward, jun., of Muswellbrook, on the 17th of March liist. Whilst crossing the country in question, their attention was attracted by a quart'/, vein, and on breaking up some of the, quartz tlicy perceived that gold was interspersed through it. They also observed other indications of the presence of gold,—such as the prevalence of tilled slate, trap, granite, and quartz, similar to those found" dispersed in other gold-fields iu the colony. These in dications induced the. parties to prospect the locality, and they commenced their proceedings, nceordiugly,...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE OVENS. (From the " Advertiser.") [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 1 November 1855

MINING INTELLIGENCE. THE OVENS. (From tlie " Advertiser.") Mining.—Everything goes on steadily at the Woolshed, one or two of the early claims, haying been excavated nearly the width of the creek. Largo boulders are found on the granite at the upper end of the creek, and these are so plentiful in some of the claims that the parties complain that the.space which should have been occupied' ■ by " stuff" is taken up by masses of rock. Hiany cuts have been taken nearly across the crcek without yielding sufficient to pay wages, but inasmuch as the bottom shelves towards the unopened ground the hopes of the claimholders arc still high. It is believed that a" rich lead ex tends along the bed- of the crcek, and that each claim must ultimately come in for its due pro portion of gold.—Where the creek is narrow the stuft has generally proved rich, although in the wide claims an equal- quantity of gold lias been found distributed amongst a large proportion of washing stuff.
