Letters to the Editor. [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our Correspondents, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.] THE GUNDAROO BRIDGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 May 1861

-o- [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our Correspondents; nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.] THE GUNDAROO BRIDGE.   TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--In your last appears an amusing article entitled "A Waking Dream, by a New Hand." Perhaps you will oblige me, an old hand, by in- serting the following as a reply. I shall deal with the production in the order in which it appears. 1. I believe the crossing-place near the Inn spoken of is in a rather dilapidated condition at present; but as far as I can learn, men are to be set to work at it immediately, and the croakers, for their own benefit, will do well to lend a hand, so that the money to be expended on the work may go as far as possible; for it is not at all likely that they will ever secure what they are so anxious to get,--the Bridge erected at the Inn. 2.

Therewere twenty-two cases set down for hearing. Of these six were previously settled out of court; in two cases the summonses had not been served; and one was paid into court. The first case in which the Bench adjudica ted, was J. Jr. Antill v. James Gallagher. For £1 10s., goods sold and delivered. De fendant pleaded not indebted. The plaintillff's agent, Mr. E. S. Antill, was sworn, and proved the delivery of the goods, at fair and reasonable prices. For the defence it was urged that the amount claimed by plaintiff had been previously al lowed as a set-off to a verdict obtained by defendant againtt plaintiffs agent, Mr. E. S.

TUE RiVEuI.--Vry little or anything has been done this past wcek in. the river claims, owing to the great excitement among those who held claims caused by the arrival of a number of celestials who have been buying up every available claim. I know of, one claim for which they paid £100, one at £75, two at £60, one at £40, and one at £30, and others also, the prices for which I could not ascer tain. They seem to have plenty of money, and spend freely for, a first-rate claim.

BURRANGONG DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 May 1861

ToBURkRANGONG DIGGINGS. : lho news received since our last publication from these diggihgs is not of a very important character. At Tipperary Gully, there are aliout 8,000 diggers at work, with the usual chequered. success. Those who have strucik gold in payable quantities have generally from 12 to '15' inches of washing-stuff; and the .yield is from 2½1to 6 dwts. to the tub; in some this amount is exceeded. The other rush is variously reported, and it is said that.a quar ter of an-ounce of gold has been got there to the tii dish. At the present time the diggers are chiefly wandering, about, undecided as to the place at which to fix themselves. - The Anti-Chinese agitation appears to have died a natural death, and the few Mongolians who are digging and making a living at Blackguard Gully, remaining undisturbed. It is .epccted that the military will be withdrawn in the course of about a month, as it is not probable that the Chinese will again hazird a visitto the ground in numbers ob...
