THE HANGING ROCK DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 27 January 1855

! THE HANGING ROCK DIGGINGS. After some months' absence from the diggings I find them much the same as when I left-neither retrograding nor pro gressing. Many parties have moved (not rushed) up the Kentucky Creek, where they seem to be doing a pretty fair stroke. The water holes in the river have paid, and are paying very handsomely; the dry season, otherwise so unfavourable to pas toral purposes has been a great benefit to the diggers, in aiding them in working their bed claims. I do not hear of any thing great being obtained, but all appear to be satisfied. The Messrs. Buchanan have just emptied a large water-hole with their powerful steam-engine, which will, I have no doubt, remunerate them well. There are still four public houses here, .which prove to be not the least profitable claims to their owners, as they are driving a fast business. I quite agree with a correspondent that the formation of a township on the river is most desirable ; no place in New Eng land is better adapte...

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 27 January 1855

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. SPUING CUHHIC.-The late* rush'on this creek has attracted about 200 to 300 miners who have met with different successes. In some cases where the claims have been bot tomed the prospect has been very encour aging, while in others the result has been nothing out of the common. The principle part of the men have come from the Nine mile Creek, and there appears to be a disposition among them to return. How ever the prospects already obtained are sufficiently good to detain many. The population on this portion of the diggings lias decidedly increased. SNAKIJ VAI-LKY. - Our correspondent writes " things are not so lively here this week, in consequence of a great number of the diggers having left this place for the ' new rush,' at Spring Creek. Another new rush took place here last week, on a hill at the back of Wallace's hotel, but it turned out to be a regular hoax, and is now quite deserted. At the wet sinking, adjoi...

THE TURON DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 27 January 1855

THE TURON DIGGINGS. The absorbing topic of the clay among the Turonites, is the rush to the new dig gings recently discovered in the Lower Turon where a beautiful nugget, weighing about twenty-five ounces was procured. Large numbers are flocking from all parts' of tlie river, to the locality, and as is in variably the practice, when new diggings' are discovered, the most astonishing re ports are in circulation, relative to the richness of the new locality. It would of course be premature, at present to hazard an opinion on the anriferousncss of the diggings discovered at the Lower Turon but as from the large number of diggers proceeding thither, their capabilities will: soon be tested, I will reserve any further remarks until next week. Several parties have been trying portions of the river bed, and I am sorry to say have been unsuccessful. Many diggers have remained on the Turon months and even years for the purpose of working their bed claims, and naturally expected' when a favour...

THE "©Ueng awtf $Wurraj> .Efrbevtiscv." " This is true liberty, when free-horn men, having to advise the public, may speak free "-Milt, trans. Eury. SATURDAY, JANCJARY 27, 1855. THE MANAGEMENT OF THE GOLD FIELDS. THE Commission of Inquiry has closed its sittings, and the whole colony is looking forward with anxiety to the result of its deliberations. That many and great changes "will be made in the existing regulations for the Gold Fields cannot be doubted. The total abolition of the diggers' great grievance, the license tax, is almost certain: and it is a matter for regret that the Gov ernment should have allowed it to exist so long, seeing that it has been so universally ob noxious to the mining popula tion ; and lias been the means of fermenting discontent in every form. The question of raising a revenue from the Gold Fields is one that will absorb a great deal of public attention, and, under existing circumstances, it is a problem by no means easy of solution. That a tax of s...

WANGARATTA. Wangaratta, January 23, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 February 1855

WANGARATTA. ROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDKNT). Wangaratta, January 23, 1855. A boy, between twelve and thirteen years of age, the son of Mr. Diffey at Heed's mill, was seriously injured here yesterday by the accidental discharge of a double-bar relled gun. It nppears the gun was heavily loaded with dnclc shot, and was laying in the bottom of a dray out of which young Diffey, without using proper precaution, attempted to take it down, when it acci dentally went off, driving the contents right through the fleshy part of the arm, imme diately below the shoulder joint, and nar rowly passing the main artery. Mr. Vincent, at whose place the accident oc curred, and to whom great credit is due for his hospitality and prompt attention, imme diately sent for Dr. Dobbvn, who was soon ill attendance and applied the necessary remedies, so that I hear the patient is now doing as well as can reasonably be expected.

HUSH! [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 February 1855

HUSH ! ' I can scarcely hear,' she murmured, ' For my heart beats loud and fast, But surely, in the far, far distance, I can hear a sound at last.' f It is only the reapers singing, As they carry home their sheaves ; ! And the evening breeze has risen, | And rustles the dying leaves/ | ' Listen ! there are voices talking.' Calmly still she strove to speak, Yet, her voice grew faint and trembling, And the red flushed in her cheek. f It is only the children playing Below, now their work is done, And they laugh that their eyes are dazzled By the rays of the setting sun.' Fainter grew her voice, and weaker, As with anxious eyes she cried, ' Down the avenue of chesnuts I can hear a horseman ride.' ' It is only the deer that were feeding In a herd on the clover grass, They were startled, and fled to the thicket As they saw the reapers pass.' Now the night arose in silence, Birds lay in their leafy nest, And the deer couched in the forest, And the children were at rest ; There was only a s...
