Clear Creek itself lias long been known to be auriferous, but the several examinations which have been made of it* capacity have hitherto not resulted in the obtaining of gold in payable quanti ties. Whether former explorers failed to strike the right spot, or confined them selves to very enpsrfici.il examinations, is not clears but the prospecting party 0imposed of Messrs Thornton.

WOOLSHED ANNUAL KAOES. SECOND I>AY, 7 JAM. 1857. Thk running yesterday was worse, if possible, than thnt of Tuesday. Three horses were entered for the Publicans' Purse, viz; Warby's Dres3 Improver, J. Kcighran's Stranger, and Warby'* Moss Trooper. Stranger was with drawn, and the other two, both the property of Mr Warby, started nt an ensy pace and cantered slowly over the course, allowing Moss Tr >oper to come in first, Dress Improver being brought to a walk two or three hundred yards before reaching the winning post. Uoth riders were heartily joed and hissed, and the populace seemed greatly annoyed by Mr Warby letting his horses walk quietly over the course without even an uttempt to test the abilities of the horses, both of which are in fine condition, and evidently well trained. We cannot blame Mr Warby for availing himself of any advantage which the apathy of the Woolshed people threw in his way. Mr Warby said yesterday that he was willing to run his horses against anythi...
