Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 29th August, 1856. EARLY SETTLERS IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 29 August 1856

Friday, 2Wi August, 1856. EARLY SETTLERS IN VICTORIA. We have been much struck, on reading the early history of the settlement of Port Phillip, by the observations occasionally made respecting the colony and its future prospects by those who first landed on our shores, as well as by some oftheirim mediate successors. It is probable; that some of them were merely casual obser vations, suggested by the circumstances in which the parties were placed at that period; but to us, who have witnessed the partial development of the country, they seem something very Hkc the outpourings of prophetic inspiration. Had this country only made the gradual progress that others similarly circumstanced at its commence ment have done, the statements alluded to might never have been noticed as posses sing anything peculiar; but having sprung into great importance within the period of twenty years, the allusions to the future'of the country, in its very infancy, I are looked upon as exhibiting keen saga c...

WAR WITH AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 29 August 1856

WAR WITH AMERICA. Great fears are now entertained; respec ting' the continuance of amicable relations between Great Britain and the United States. They are becoming' so complica ted that the utmost prodence and modera tion will- be requisite on both sides of the Atlantic in order to avert, actual hostilities. Until war is formally declared, we shall refiise to believe that two powerful nations, so intimately related by the ties of blood, and so dependent upon each other in a commercial point of, view, will be guilty' of the flagrant absurdity of .cutting each other's throats! However, it is our duty; to note,' the. events as they transpire, and we find it stated that the British Government offered to assist the Costa Ricans against General Walker in Nicaragua; that Walker inter cepted the correspondence between the contracting parties, and that in conse quence of the publication of this corres pondence the sympathy of the United States has been extended to. Walker, and there is a pr...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Gipps Land Gold.—On Wednesday last Mr. Frost, from the Mitchell River, brought a; bag; of "gold from-the Nicholson River: Diggings,-to our office for inspection; its contents weighed from 3h lbs. to 4 lbs., (value at a rough estimate about £170) consisting of nuggets from 4 oz. dwts. downwards; its general character rich and coarse, scarcely nny fine gold being present. It had been obtained by two miners du ring a period of about three months who had many difficulties to contend against, having lost much of this time in convey ing their own provisions and other necessa r ries to these diggings, (there being no store; there at the time) also the late bad weather which considerably checked mi ning operations. As the fine weather comes on we hope the man}' so unsuccessful in other quarters willwend their way thither as there is no reason to doubt but that they will stand a fair chance of doing well.
