MINING. [?] OF THE WEEK'S NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 22 October 1864

MAfiV OF THE WEEK'S NEWS. The put week tu rather a dull one on the I diggings. There m an almost total want of { excitement and novelty in regard to mining matter*, to counteract the depressing effect of ] the return of wintry weather; but a few days of sunshine will doubtless restore the late activity. No lead has been etrack at Darling flat, the formation of the ground showing pretty plainly that none exists; but several fresh patches are opened every week, and the | majority of the miners are doing moderately well. The gold is mostly found in deep crab holes, rather wide apart; and annggst weigh ing Box. 2dwt was tamed act of one of these a few days since.

Our regiment of Boyal Volunteer Ar tillery claims to be die oldest establiehcd as veil as (be most efficient of any of our ] volunteer corps, The former honour, at all events, must be conceded to it, for ten years have sped since it first had an ] existence and a name. In those days the volunteer element was represented by the artillery above, and not very largely represented either, for the corps did not , muster above 150 men. In those days our volunteers were not recognised by the public with the same cordiality as la now the case, and it may be that the J corps would never have risen from its small beginnings but that, fortunately, the command was in the hands of a gentleman who then, as now, was an en thusiast in the volunteer movement— j Colonel IV.
