RETIREMENT OF CAPTAIN CLARKE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 November 1855

RETIREMENT OF CAPTAIN CLARKE. As will be observed by the report of a meeting of the friends and supporters of Captain Clarke, which will be found in another column, this gen tleman has retired from the contest for the repre sentation of Bendigo. This step is the most ju dicious that he could have chosen ; for to have fairly tested the political sentiments of the electors of Bendigo would_.be certain shame and defeat for the Surveyor-General. We arc of those who do not overlook the merits of Mr. Clarke in our opposition to his political an tecedents. We believe him to be the most liberal member of a Government which has never evinced liberality—or in fact any characteristic which should secure public esteem and confidence. We are also aware that he was not implicated in the pernicious policy which led to the Balltorat tra gedy, not being a member of the Executive Coun cil, although an official member of the Legislature. But we cannot forgive the indifference, the in decision, or the ...

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORUESPONDENT.) November 7, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 November 1855

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORUESPONDEXT,) November 7, 1855. | The election for tfre city of Melbourne has ter minated in a result most encouraging for the future prospects of the Colony, in the triumph of Sir. Rae, and the defeat of Mr. Cruiksiiank. The one pledged to the abolition of the property qualification for a seat in the Legislative Assembly, the other an avowed partisan of the squatters, and altogether opposed to those progressive im provements which find favor with men of intelli gence all over the world. The number polled were, for Mr. Rue 1,584; for Mr. Cruikshank 4<i0. The majority therefore for Mr. Rae was 1,124. I have seen Toryism rampant in England in the plentitude of its power and usurpation, but I never could have imagined it had emigrated to this-colony, retaining the contempt of the people, manifested by the partizans of Mr. Cruikshank at this election. It would be idle to notice elec tioneering squibs liere or at home, but as a fea ther will indicate...

MEETING TO PRESENT A REQUISITION TO MR. J. M. GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 November 1855

MEETING TO PRESENT A REQUISITION TO MR. J. M. GRANT. . lesterday placards were conspicuously posted over the town, announcing the arrival of Mr. Grant, and stating that a 'meeting would be held that evening at 33(trail's Assembly Rooms, when a requisition would be presented to him, calling upon him to .allow himself to be put in nomi nation as a candidate for the suffrages of the electors of Beudigo. At the appoiifted hour the room was well tilled, and a considerable number of persons arrived shortly after the business of the evening had been commenced. The meeting was conducted in the most orderly manner till a well-known colored gentleman and dexterous barber, of the name of Ross, intruded his dusky person on the platform, when p. scene of confusion arose, caused not so much by the barber as by his "friends and supporters," who persisted in cheering him, and by every means in their power in endeavoring to frustrate the objects of the meet ing, in which, as will be observed, they t...

BALLAARAT. (From the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 November 1855

BALLAARAT. CFrom the Star.J The neighborhood, of Magpie is, daily receiving accessions to its population, and in well filled hotels, handsome stores, and comfortable tents, may safely bear comparison with any goldficld' in the Colony. The White Flat rush is doing well, though there is as yet a degree of mystery about tliia locality. It would seem that while those who are getting gold, are bottoming at shallow depths, there are two dips—one to the east, and one to the west, from the ground now opened. The opinion is, that a lead, perhaps a continuation of that which ran close to the bottom of Golden Point, will take the high ground below the township, and that th^ parties prospecting behind Golden Point will come on a new lead. It will be premature to pass an opinion on the subject; but we may say that there is every probability that two new lines uro likely soon to be discovered in that neighborhood.' The Gravel Pits line is progressing slowly, and presents new confirmation of the o...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. M'lVOR DIGGINGS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Heathcote, Nov. 3, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 November 1855

MINING INTELLIGENCE. M'lVOR DIGGINGS. (from our own correspondent.) Heatlicote, Nov. 3,1855. [ The prospects of this goldfield and township are rapidly improving. The population, which for a considerable time back has been very limited, is steadily on the iucrense, and those who come among us seem to find it to their interest to remain. Business of all kinds is brisker, many parties are building and fencing in their grounds, cultivating vegetables and garden stuff, while the diggers, as a body, are, I fancy, doing as well as on any other more popular and more noticed diggings. The escort returns show a regular increase in the yield of gold, and the last escort, which left yesterday, took down the largest amount which has left M'lvor for twelve months, viz. 1,668 ounces. Of this quantity 669 ounces were from the Goulbourn, which leaves close upon 1,000 ounces from M'lvor, and this proves that, though our goldfield has been somewhat out of fashion of late, it is not because there is n...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. SIEGE OF SEBASTOPOL. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 November 1855

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. SIEGE OF SEBASTOPOL. The Russians are so conscious of the immi nent danger of suffering our works to proceed towards completion that they seldom allow a night to pas£ without renewing their harassing fire. They generally open the batteries about midnight, and sometimes continue their mixed attack of shells, musketry, and guns till day break. It is certain, however, that they have suffered much more severely than the Allies. Disease, in addition to the ordinary calamities of war, is raging within the walls of Sebasto pol, and the burial-ground on the north side of the city is daily assuming a terrible magnitude. Fatigue parties can be plainly discerned every morning digging a series of pits/or the recep iion of the dead. The whole plain on the north side, between the cliffs and the sea, which in March last was in a state of wild luxuriance, is now rapidly becoming converted into a vast cemetery. It has been confidently rumored for some days past that General Si...

NEW REEFS.—Mount Blackwood appears to team with auriferous reefs. Two new ones have been opened this week, and good speci mens taken from the crown claims: one is called the Circassian Reef, between Yankee or Acre's Reef and Simmon's Reef, from its being discovered by a Circassian. The other new reef lies about five miles north of Acre's Reef, and a considerable rush has taken place to both reefs.
