THE CONVICT RIoTS-AT CHATHAM. AT- a' preconcerted signal, about fifty convicts made a sudden rush on the keepers, whom they quickly succeededt in overpowering, and almost at the' same instant the other convicts, who were out of their cells waiting to com mence work, turned upon their keepers, as sailing them with fearful oaths, and threaten to massacre the whole of them. At this time several hundred convicts ?vere free frrm all control, and the keys of the cells having. been forccd from the warders, those' who were in the cells were quickly released. The wildest uproar now ensued, the whole of the prisoners being loose within the prison, and ready for any -excesses. -Captain Gam bier, who happened to be within the bu~ding, together with Captain Powell; the governor, Mr. Messor, the deputy-governor, and the other principal officers of the establishment, were soon among the convicts, whom they endeavoured to induce to proceed to their cells.

QUEANBEYAN DISTRICT HOSPITAL MEETING. Ox the evening of Tuesday last, the usual Quarterly Meeting of the Queanbeyan District H-lospital Committee was held in the Court house. The president, Mr. J. J. Wright,' oc cupied the chair. The principal business of the meeting was to receive the matron's and other accounts, these were presented, carefully examined, and cventually passed. An objection was raised by the President to the manner in which some of the accounts were made out, who suggested the advisability of having every particular distinctly given. Mr. O'Neill contended that the present sys tom of rendering thi accounts was liable to great abuse, and gave room for existence of mistakes and exorbitant charges. Mr. Gale did not for a moment think that anything of the kind had actually transpired, but would fully recommend the suggestion of the president, that the accounts rendered should state the particulars. He also sug gested that a scale of charges should be made out and strictl...

TASMANIA. By the Tasmania we have Hobart Town papers to the 16th inst. The criminal session has commenced. John Frederick Morris, formerly detective constable at Eden,was found guilty of the murder of John Glann, but the jury strongly recommend him to mercy, on the ground that the prisoner's feeling had been aggravated by the conduct of deceased with prisoner's wife. His Honor Sir Valentine Fleming, in passing sentence concluded as fol lows.:-" I believe you laid in await for :your victim and shot him down like a dog; and I will add that a more coldblooded, deliberated murder I never remember to have heard; you sent your victim to account in one moment. I, of course, will forward the recommendation of the jury to the Executive, but whatever the result of their deliberations may be, I have but one duty to perform. But I exhort, nay, I entreat you to place no reliance whatever in the hope that your life will be spared, for I can hold out to you no such hope whatever. I fear they will ...

G tinhirt 4ntes i, hnaq . -o-00 A NOVEL CRAFT.-Yestcrday: morning, a, craft of a new kind, with two awhbels (not pad dies), was launched on theb Mliray, in the shape of a water-cart belonginig to Mr. Pritchard, of the Exchange IHotel, which was taken down to the river by one of his men for the purpose of getting some water. The cart was driven into the water in the usual way, when the horse, feeling tired after his exertions, wished for a little rest, and, thinking no doubt that there was no time like the present, lay down, when both cart and horse were carried by the stream some sixty yards down the ri ver. The driver, who is an old sailor, knew a' little about steering his craft, and stuck to her well till she drifted into the side, but iii: such deep water that it was impossible for thel cart to be drawn out. Fortunately, there were some gentlemen near who rendered their- as sistance, and with the aid of a rope managed' to get the sailor, who by the way could not swim, and his cr...

THE GULF DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 May 1861
THE GULF DIGGINGS. DURlNG the past fortnight there has been a considerable accession to the population on this gold-field. There are now nearly three hundred persons at work there, and fresh ar- rivals every day. At the new rush many of the claims are turning out capitally; the gold obtained being of the purest description. The late disasters at the Araluen have induced many to try their luck at the new diggings which, to judge from the report of Mr. Sur veyor Bransby and general accounts, are likely to turn out rich and permanent. The reports of scientific men all point to one con clusion, viz., that a very rich and payable gold-field exists somewhere in this locality, and as the population is so rapidly increasing, and amongst the number are many miners of great practical experience, we expect to see the Gulf diggings go ahead rapidly, and take a prominent place amongst the many rich gold fields of the Colony of New South Wales. Braidwood Dispatch. The same paper says :--We learn ...
