MINING. INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 24 November 1855
MINING. INTELLIGENCE. . BALi.AA.nAT.—A large rush took place lately to the neighborhood of tho cemetery nt Buninyong, three miles from Magpie. Whatever may have induced this rush, the results were so inconsider able as to lead to speedy falling off in the number of tho rushers. It seems that, as in almost every place in the district, gold has been found, and can Btill be found here in small quantities—report says a pennyweight a tub. It was imagined that this might lead to something better, hence the rush. , Paddy's, Long, and Cobbler's Gullies are com manding less attention just now than they have done of late, as they, more especially the last, have been less rich in their yields than had been anti cipated.

RAILWAYS FOR THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 24 November 1855
RAILWAYS FOR THE COLONIES. •In llie interesting address of Mr. Grant on the nomi nation day, that gentleman alluded to the tramway in courac of construction to llie Yan Yean Reservoir, as mi illustration of the cheapness, and the fhcility with which lines of Railways could be laid throughout the colony ; and which wimld pave the. way for the introduction of the more substantial and, the mora costly system of rail ways constructed in Great Britain. The subject is one of the deepest interest to ns, as our very existence al most depends upon the facility of internal communica tion. We therefore publish the following interesting particulars respecting the tramway alluded to, which wo extract from a valuable article in the Argus. The sub ject is of too much importance to be discussed within the bri:jf limits we can spare at present, and we shall therefore take an early opportunity of adverting to it. This tramway is of very simple construction, and its cost is correspondingly low, being ...

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT,) 21st November, 1853. Intelligence from iSew York to the 8th August lias coipe in hand. It appeal's that .it the contes ted election for Louisville, Kentucky, a most vio lent, and sanguinary conflict took place, between the party known as the know-nothings and the Irish ; many on both sides were killed and woun ded. The city was set on fire in different places, and the contest had reached such a height that cannon was employed by one or other of the partios. The termination of this unfortunate en gagement was not ascertained when the vessel which brings these accounts sailed. I have heard that there is a party of fanatics, who in Melbtuvne think they ure doing good service in cxciting feelings of hostility, between the Irish and other portions of the people. Placards of a tendency to offend the feelings of the lloman Catholics have been posted in the city, and I am informed that this movement is to be followed up by other de monstrations of an...
THE YAN YEAN RESERVOIR. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 24 November 1855
THE YAN YEAN KESERVOIIt. The following graphic description of this important public work by which Melbourne is to be supplied with water, will be read with interoat. It should suggest to 113 the necessity of our doing something to place this district above the accident of dry seasons, and ensure us an adequate supply of an element which, to us, is of such vital importance. Several larae efforts have been made to interest the public in ihe construction of some public work which would supply the great want. We trust that a substantial movement will be made in the matter. The great reservoir of the Y«n Yean Waterworks is situated on the Plenty River, at a distance of seventeen or eighteen miles from Melbourne in a direct line, and of twonty.three or twenty-four by the ordinary road. The area which is to be occupied by the water consists of nearly 1500 acres. It is situated at an elevation of six hundred feet above the highest part of Melbourne, af fording a pressure of enormous power, ...
AMATEUR PERFORMANCE IN AID OF THE PATRIOTIC FUND. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 24 November 1855
AMATEUR PERFORMANCE IN AID OF THE "PATRIOTIC FUND. We are satisfied that the large and respectable audience which assembled 0:1 Thursday evening at the Criterion Hotel to witness the Amateur Per formance in aid of the Patriotic Fund, have seldom passed a more agreeable evening than on that oc casion. The noble object for which the entertain ments were given would fully have excused the shortcomings which might reasonably have been expected; but with the single exception of the disagreeable heat of the' room, arising from its crowded state and the warmth of the weather, there was hardly a single drawback. It was de cidedly one of the most satisfactory and successful nflail's that we have ever witnessed. The attend ance was what it should have been, as numerous as the place could well accommodate, and compri sing the most respectable families of the district. As to the performances we never were more agree ably disappointed. We went to witness them, fully prepared to indulge in any am...

SELECT POETRY. ABORIGINAL POESY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 24 November 1855
SELECT POETRY. ABORIGINAL POESY. The aboriginal Australians, like the ancient Greeks, believed in an plurality of demons, amongst whom &nbsp; " Ontereasude" was probably the fiercest. One of this worthy's haunts was the stringy- bark ranges, where now stands the sweet little station of Hilgay, on the river Wannon, whose stringy bark has given way to rich grassy mounds. Here the demon, who had but one leg, hopped about in pursuit of " bandicoots, picaninny birds, and black fellows,'' his legal prey. " Weering" is, however, the most classical-looking devil "belonging to black fellow,'' and his approxima &nbsp; tion to the more celebrated fiends of antiquity may be well gleaned from the following translations from the " Ancient Arabic " and " Aboriginal Australian — ANCIENT ARABIC. Why do the distant mountains look So gloomy and so grim ? &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Do tempests hover nenr them, &nbsp; Or rain clouds o'er them swim ! &n...

COURT OF PETTY SESSIONS. Thursday, 22nd November. (Before the Stipendiary Magistrate.^ Wages. — Richard Hemingway was minimoned by .Tnbn I'urr for refusing to pay him £13, balance of wages due to him. Tt appeared that the plaintiff hail accompanied a Mr. Booth from Melbourne, who was proposing to purchase the Uoval Hotel, belonging to the defendaut. The sum 1 sought to be recovered by the plaintilF was for it period during which he was acting in the bar, but anterior, ac cording to his own account, to any engagement having teen nudrj with him by Mr. Hemingway. It clearly appeared that the plaintiff lmd come to Bendigo specu lating on the chance of Mr. Booth's purchasing tho j lloyal Hotel, when he was to have been made barman. Mr. Hemingway had paid the plaintiff the full amount due to him for the time during which ho was in his service.

STATE AID TO RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 24 November 1855
STATE AID TO RELIGION. An important public meeting was held in Mel- bourne, on Wednesday, in reference to this subject, for the purpose of founding an association to obtain the repeal of the 53rd clause in the new Constitu- tion, appropriating the sum of £50,000 to eccle- siastical uses. Mr. Westgarth occupied the chair. There were about 300 persons present. The Chairman opened the proceedings by a lengthy address, stating the objects of the meeting, and the desirability of obtaining them. The Rev. Mr. Ramsay read a statement re- specting the state grants to religion in the co- lony. The Rev. Mr. Ballantyne then moved, and the Rev. Mr. Fletcher seconded, the first resolution : 1. That the 53rd clause in the new Constitution, ap- propriating £50,000 of the public money for ecclesias- tical purposes, is obnoxious to a large and rapidly increasing portion of the colonists, who are, on prin- ciple, opposed to all state endowments of religion, whatever shape they assume, and who can neve...
LAND IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 27 November 1855
LAND IN VICTORIA. The Times has opened its columns to an episto lary conflict between William Howitt on'the one part and Mr. W. Campbell and Mr. W. Rutledge on the other ; in reference to the waste-land ques tion. In his last communication to the Times, Mr. Howitt observes :— " It does not require 14 years, nor even 14 weeks, to learn that want of cheap land is th# monster grievance of the colony. " If there be no want of land by the public^— if it be true that quantities of the best land' in tho colony are offered for sale, and nobody will buy it, why all this alarm on the part of the squatters?' If nobody will buy it they need not fear that it will be sold. If nobody wants the land, why did. the squatters memorialize Lord Aberdeen, in 1854, 'protesting against the despatch of the Duke of Newcastle, juat received, wliich recommended leases to be given to the squatters in conformity to the orders in Council of 1847, but requiring them to be dated from that time, restricting the pre ...

The evidence was most satisfactory and conclusive against the prisoner, though he persevered to the end in declaring his innocence. The only remarkable circumstance in the case was an observation made "by Mr. Justice Barry in passing' sentence, with ■reference to the prisoner's) declaration of innocence, ."If you are really innocent," said the learned Judge, "the thought' that you are so will be consolation to you during the term of your pun ishment" .
