tym BtggmciS; TURON DIGGINGS. fPaOM OOa OWN COaRESPONDENT.l Since my last report I have visited, the dippings, both -at the junction of the Oakey Creek and at the point where Mr, Blakefield is at work. At the former place they have driven ;into the hill to the extent of thirty-five to forty feet. -Some of the places remind mo forcibly of the Duke of Bridge water's canal at Worsley.' The diggers here are doing pretty well, but they are not procuring as much gold as at Blakefield's point. Mr. Cummings has lately bought a claim a few yards from the latter place, for which he paid^GGO. Sincethe pur chase, he lias refused £250 for his interest ip it. The party from whom he bought tho claim had averaged nearly fifteen ounces a day for a consi derable time. These particulars I had from Mr. Cummings himself, who tells me that ho expects doing something that will astonish the Turonites.

THE VOICE OF THE NATIVE OAK. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 September 1851

THE VOICE OF THE NATIVE OAK. Who hath laid him underneath A lone oak by a lonely stream ? He hath heard an utterance breathe Sadder than aught else may seem. Up in its dusky boughs, down tressing, Like the hair of a giant's head, Mournful things beyond our guessing Day and night are uttered. Yea, even when the waveless air May only stir the lightest leaf, A lowly voice keeps moaning there Worldless oracles of grief. But when nightly blasts are roaming Thus lowly is that voice no more: Then from the streaming branches coming, Elfin shrieks are heard to pour. Till the listener surely deems That some weird spirit of the air,     Hath made those boughs the lute of themes Wilder,— drearier thaa despair.     Some lonely spirit that hat hath dwelt For ages in one lonely tree ; — Some weary spirit that hath felt The burden of Eternity. Charles Harpur.

Select Poetry. TRY AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 September 1851

Select Poetry.   TRY AGAIN. I've often tried, and often failed, To mend my fellows' taste ; But still my heart has never quailed   Before decrees of fate ; There's always something in the breast Which whispers clear and plain, "There's work to do ; why idly rest ?   Up, up, and try again." There's magic in these little words, Which have a greater power Than levelled guns and flashing swords     In danger's darkest hour ; And when they're used to prompt the right, To soothe distress and pain, They hear a tone of glorious might— "Up, up, and try again."   The little flower which lifts its head Up to the sunlit sky,   Bowed down beneath the heavy tread, Does not lie there and die;   There is a voice borne on the winds Which vibrates o'er the plain, And says, unheard by passing hinds, "Up, up, and try again."   And that should be the watchword cry   &...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal." [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 24 September 1851

Original Correspondence     To the Editor of the "Bathurst Free Press     and Mining Journal."     Sir— Various notices have appeared in your journal of the advantages taken of ig- norant or unwary miners, by a few of the Turon gold buyers, and as the public press, is at present the only check upon the doings of such dishonest tricksters, the subject can- not obtain too much publicity. The disho- nest gold merchant will thus learn that his fraudulent practices are known, and the unsuspecting gold digger will perceive the necessity of caution when; he disposes of the fruits of his labor. Were I not convinced   that a great amount of small villainy of this description, prevails, you would not have been troubled to give this letter insertion. The following particulars will give yourself   and readers some idea of the way in which we are cheated. A few days ago when at work, I was luc...
