THE BORDER WATCH, Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20TH, 1861. THE OTAGO GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 20 September 1861
THE 'Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20ra, 1861. THE OTAGO GOLD FIELDS. IT appears that the rush to the New Zealand diggings is already beginning to cause derange ment in the labour market in this country. If the gold-fields should in the course of the summer prove to be as productive as the most reliable accounts lead us to expect, the de rangement -will be most serious. We already dread the effects of the digging excitement on the approaching season of harvest in this neighbourhood. Labour is scarce and dear already-far too scarce and dear as compared .with the price of agricultural produce; and ' if the farmers should find on New Year's Pay that tnost of the day labourers have dis appeared,, the result will be a ruinous loss of the precious fruits of the earth. That the attractions of the, new gold-fields will add a shilling or two per bushel to the* valuerof wheat is not to be.'expected ; the '^contrary, we fear, will be the case, as Victoria will be drained of...
