RUSSIA AND PERSIA. (From the Port Louis Gazette, of 1st September.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 20 November 1855
RUSSIA AND PERSIA. (From the Port Louis Gazette, of 1st September.) We published a few days ago a telegraphic despatch,, received at Madras on 27th June, announcing several regiments at that place as destined for the Persian expedition. Being without any previous information, the cu riosity of our renders nmsl> have been raised, and we now profit by the curliest opportunity .of sa Vying it. Vague rumors h:id for some time previous been current in the Indian journals as to this expedition, but whilst one journal asserted it would tuke place, another doubted, and another denied it. There is little doubt that Persia has si led with Russia —the latter, 110 doubt, expecting by threats on the northern frontiers of British India to prevent the withdrawal of more troops for the Crimea. On this subject we have the follow ing intelligence from ' Bombay Gazotte,' of 30th July:— "It was reported at Bokhara that an army of 20,000 Persians had assembled in the vicinity uf Mushid, to aid by its...

LOCAL COURT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 20 November 1855
LOCAL COURT ELECTION. At the close of the meeting for the declaration of the poll in the late election, held on Saturday | last, and previous to its separation another was held to elect a member to serve in the Local Court in the place of Mr, Mackenzie, who had resigned. , The Chairman, Mr. Assistant Warden Jones, there being only one candidate for the vacant post thought it unnecessary, under the circum stances, to postpone the meeting, in consequence j of there being miners not possessing the Miners' Right mixed up with the qualified voters. Sir. Robinson and Mr. Hopkins were both requested to allow themselves to be nominated. Both refused on the ground that they could not spare the time ; and the latter gave as additional reasons, that neither the state of his finances nor his health would permit him to accept the honor. The Chairman made a few remarks, expressive of his pleasure at seeing so large a meeting, the im portant nature of the duties to be discharged by the person who ...

The Hemming Officer had to thnnk tho public for the orderly manner in which they had con. ducted themselves at the eleciton, and more especially under the inconveniences and informalities which had presented themselves. He regretted ulso that the polling booth had been found to be too small, in justice t( [himself, he must say he thought it would have been found fully large enough, but that miiny, who it was anticipated, would vote at Sailor's Gully ifo the nearest voting place, had come into the tow...

For a considerable time the Russian ■army has been hovering about the liver Teller nay a an a manner to keep the French and Sardinians, who were stationed there in large force, perpetually on the qui vine; but as the Muscovites occupied an «ntrenened camp, deemed almost impregnable, or to be assaulted only at a risk of loss which it would not be advisable for our allies to incur, the great aim and object was to entice the Russians out. Mistaking our design for a sense of apprehension and weakness, General Liprandi, at the head of 50,000 to (50,000 men, ottered the French and Sar dinians a pitched battle, aad he was signally wor sted, his loss being 5,000 to 0,000 men, and at no great cost to our brav...

MOUNT. ARARAT. (From tho Ballaarat Times Correspondent.) ' November 14th, 1855. The diggings here aTe now looking ihore pros perous than our most sanguine expectations for the welfare of these small but certainly remunera tive gold-fields. Our population now must be/at least between 2,000 and 3,000. It is expected that in another fortnight the population will be doubled iu this locality. Those who lire here are, generally speaking, well satisfied with their gains, while others that have stuck here all along have made fortunes. Some, certainly, here, as well as' on other diggiugs, are doing very little, and some perhaps not paying expenses. I saw a beautiful nugget of seven ounces five pennyweights, obtain ed on the old lead, which lias agaiii been struck richer than ever. The average sinking is from twelve to fourteen feet. • There is rather a want of stores here, but that want is fully made up by the supply of grog tents.
