Mining News. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Miner — 1 December 1875
mining News TBE larg« and handsome dividends yielded by the Rainbow a.d St. Patrick reefs, have so entirely monopolised publio attention for the best part of this year, that other extensively worked reefs have been almost forgotten. The Wellington line of reef was at one timo very prominent among the mines supporting the mills with stone, but tbe great expense to be met befóte it could be eut tn the deep ground soon shunted some of the earlier elaimnoldera to other reefs. The proprietors of the p.o. are the first to reap a return for the heavy outlay incurred by backing un.

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Miner — 1 December 1875
, Correspondence. TO THE BDITOB» j BIB,-I «iah to offer a few remarks concerning Hie hut Hospital meeting, when eomo ol the gentlemen concerned in the management resolved to apply the word "pauper" to non-paying patients. U they carry out that résolution, it will do tar more harm to the institution than even tho valuable services of those in favor of the motion can do good. Most of the miners and working men in the district give their mite freely towards the support of the hospital, many never receiving any benefit and sincerely hoping they never may require any, and yet if they have the knowledge that if tbeylahould be low in funds, or unfortunate through accident or illness re quire to go into the hospital, knowing ths word "pauper" will be applied to them, they will have a great disinclination to give any support to institution. If, aa one of the speakers stated, the word " impostor " would be more applicable, why admit tnemP Bat if once admitted, it would be better to make the b...

"Hanner," he repealed. "I re marked I'm agoin' to rise." Hannah counterfeited b profound and tranqail slumber.

The Bulletin on Mr. Macrossan. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Miner — 8 December 1875
e Bulletin on Mr- Macrossan His greatest foiling-an over sensitiveness to hostile criticism-is one to which moil young politicians are prone. Bnt it must be con fessed that he has been (rem the first in ft situs tien of peculiar difficulty. On tlio most exciting question of the day, he was enthusiastically and oonsoentiously on the Conservative side, and thus presented the strange spectacle of an ultra demoeralio representative, hopelessly oom rutted to the nnpopnlar party. His position was rendered still more awkward by the circumstance that as an opponent he unfortunately counted the editor of the Norther* Miner, a elever, incisive, vigorous writer, yet a man utterly .devoid of good taste, and thoroughly uncrupuious. Sncn a Dan, with a newspaper at bis command, among a member's constituents at the distance of a thousand miles from the aapital, is an antag onist, whom less sensible politicians than Ur. Macrossan, might well dread. The editor of the Miner is no inaccurate old-wotnan...
