THE TURON DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 15 October 1851

THE TURON DIGGINGS. , Unless t forward you everlasting stories of what John Thompson or some other gold digging worthy ia doing — how much gold a Windsor agriculturist, a Sydney at torney, or a Parramatta doctor is digging nnt of the tou-?h clav.l scarcely know' what to write. If I tell you that the water is up you will not be much wiser than you are at preseot, and precious little more edi fied ; if down, the pump makers I presume will grow melancholy, and weep the tears that their pumps ought to weep at the Tu ron. There is so much sameness about the proceedings of our social body, that unless a man possessed the creative faculty of a Milton, he could hardly contrive to throw any interest into the circumstances which the sun, in hia diurnal c*reer, sees repeated over. and, over again. To inform you that Williams, from Windsor, some days nets 24oz9., and others as much as 32ozs. of gold, would be.retaiiiog stale news, because eve'ry.body know$jt:)and everybody is aware that, if he ...

Although we belong not to tn&t very Btrait class of religionists known in the mother country as Sabbatarians, and very much disapprove of the very obtrusive man ner in which their principles and P™cUce i^ovo w.n thrust upon the people of ftng Jand, we cannot, as believers m the raitn and morality handed down to us in the re- , cords of Holy Writ, entertain any other sea timent than that of strong disapproval at the reckless manner in which the day appointed by the fourth commandment to be kept holy, is desecrated at the diggings. Do not pe alarmed, gentle readers; we are not about to preach a sermon. The contention we. propose to wage is for the decent obser vances of civilized man in every commu nity in which Christianity means anything but a name. The means we would employ vare purely moral in their character— rpaBnn- persuasion, and...

Colonial Reins. BALLARAT DIGGINGS. Buninyong, Thursday morning. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 18 October 1851

©olonfal JJefos. .4 BALLARAT DIGGINGS. i Buninyong, Thursday morning. If the present rate of yield continue, of which there is every probability, pounds will supersede ounces, and the steelyard supplant the scales. Gold is shot into mash tubs, stirred up with a shovel, after t^e debris has been well saturated, and is then drained off, and screened, for so rich is the residue in auriferous metal, that it may be picked without cradling, and pieces from a dvyt. downward found with the greatest facility. I saw one party flashing the quartz with water on a plain board, and extracting from the mas3 pieces, of such a size, that one- of them would have set the Province mad seven weeks ago. One party of five showed me the amount of their day's jirork on Monday, which was contained in a tih pannikin, which was at least one-third full. I mentioned the fact to another party.'' who smilingly remarked, thereupon, that1 hjs party had got thirty ounces that morn ing by ten o'clock, and another pnrt...
