THE VICTORIA GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 29 October 1851
THE VICTORIA GOLD FIELDS. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) . The Melbourne and Geelong papers received yesterday give more sober. accdunts of the progress of the gold-finders than they have yet furnished. The last government escort had brought' 'down 1998 ounces of gold, and it was generally. admitted that hard labour and perseverance would' have every chance of success. A few paragraphs, describing extremely lucky'' discoveries,, are here and there sprinkled over the columns of our contemporaries. The Melbourne Herald of the 16th instant says, 'Yesterday a lump of gold weighing 7i lbs. ar rived in Melbourne, from Buninyong. It 'is a very fine specimen, and the largest 'lump' yet found in Victoria. The owner of it is Mr. Wbbdlock, some months ago a Melbourne publican, and it was dug up at a newly discovered field, about seven miles from. Ballarat. An advertisement in another co lumn states, that from this morning it will be ex- ? hibited for a few days at the Horse and Jockey, Litt...

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS AND MINING JOURNAL. &nbsp; &nbsp; "MAGNA EST VERITAS EX PREVALEBIT" &nbsp; WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER, 29, 1851 &nbsp; OUR ROADS. &nbsp; 'The state of our roads generally, but more particularly of the road from Bathurst to Sydney, is a subject to which it has fre quently fallen to our duty to call public at tention. With the cessation of the winter's rains, and the absorbing influence of the beams of Apollo, much of the anxiety, which formerly pervaded the minds of the business people of Bathurst respecting the arrival of the mail, or the appearance of their loaded teams, has evaporated. We have a summer &nbsp; &nbsp; before us, during which there is little fear of any serious interruption of business opera &nbsp; tions, but that summer will surely be suc -ceeded by another winter whose moisture will, in all probability, reduce the metropo litan road to one prolonged puddle, which &nbsp; will for...
THE TURON. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 29 October 1851
THE TURON &nbsp; A newpoint situate about midway between &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Hawkins Ridge and the junction of the Macquarie, has been been discovered. On Monday, the '20th cur rent, two persons only were at work on this angle, but the success of their united labours being so great, several parties, in the close of evening, were observed wending , their way' thither. There are &nbsp; now. about 200 persons at work, most of whom are doing- well ; and judging by the usual auriferous &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; indications, ' it will turn out to be a rich spot. A provision store and butchers shop are already &nbsp; opened on the grounds by the son of Mr. Cum- -mings. A piece of crystalized quartz, , richly streaked with gold, was this moment dug up by a &nbsp; party of three, for which they refuse to take £60. &nbsp; At Dirt Hole Creek, distant from this place about '7 miles, there are 100 persons working...

Thursday, October 23rd 1851 &nbsp; CATTLE STEALING Cornelius Ryan, on bail, was indicted for stealing a saddle, the property of George Bentinck, of, Meadow Flat. Mr. Mclntosh defended the prisoner.

SANDWICH ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 1 November 1851
' , SANDWICH ISLANDS. ? We' have received intelligence from Hono lulu up to the 9th September, but we do not observe anything in the papers - before us of particular interest.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 1 November 1851
?NEW ZEALAND. The New Zealand papers are unusually devoid of interest. The mission schooner Border' Maid ar rived. at Auckland on the Oth instant,- with ?the Lord Bishop of ;Ne\y Zealand. The New Zealander says that ' During his ab sence, ins iiorasnip yisitea iourieen lsianas in the, New Hebrides and Loyalty Groups, and brings back with him thirteen, scholars from six different islands, for education in New Zealand. Five of these are from the island of -Mare in. the Loyalty Group, who confirm .the account of the destruction of the cutter' Lucy Anne, belonging to' Mr. Towns, of Sydney, by the natives of another part of the island. This was the. island where (as will be remembered) Capt. Lewis last year killed three natives, under circumstances which led, to a trial at Sydney, a report of which appeared some' time since in our columns.-'
A RAILROAD THROUGH THE AFRICAN DESERT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 1 November 1851
A RAILROAD THROUGH THE AFRI CAN DESERT. The Viceroy of Egypt has sanctioned the project of a railroad from Alexandria by way of Cairo, to the Isthmus of Suez, and the work will be commenced without delay. With the most skilful European engineers,' at his command, and able at any time to summon one hundred thousand Arabs and Copts to the labour, the energetic and enter prising Ibrahim Pasha will not allow a long time to elapse before the whistle of the loco motive will wake' the solitudes of Petra and Mount Sinai, scare the marauding Bedouin out of his wits, and render the journey from Alexandria ? to the Ploly Land as easy and rapid as the passage from Buffalo to New York. The traveller will , start from the base of Cleopatra's Needle, reach Cairo in six hours, refresh himself at a mammoth depot in the midst of a ' waste howling wilderness and stand upon. the ancient shores of the Red Sea in two days after leaving the Delta of the Nile. A railroad through the scenes of Israel's riig...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Gold in' Tasmania., — Shortly we ex pect the discovery of a gold field will be revealed to the excited inhabitants of Yah Diemen's Land. .
