Mining. SUMMARY OF THE WEEK'S NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 1 October 1864
SUMMARY OF THE WEEK'S NEWS. Accounts from the New Zealand gold-fields continue good. The month of August and the first half of September were fine in the province u( Otsgo, and the tlverg were there fore low; but the number of men working in the bed of the Molyneux had not much in creased. We are not told of any vety large yields ftom the river-claims, but, on the con trary, that some of those from which so much had been expected were turning oat badly, others, again, on what were doomed to bo less favoutable situations proving to be very good. The Molyneux seems, however, to . have lost its prestige, and will no; longer be looked upon as having an illimitable amount of gold in its bed. The character of the mining in Otago has changed so rnach of late that much largci claims are now granted, with a view to promote deep-sinking and the outlay of capital, in cutting water-races and otherwise bringing a plentiful supply of water to places where it may bo needed. Re ports from the Marlb...
SMYTHESDALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 1 October 1864
6HYTHE6DALB. Fourteen miles from B&llarat, in a westerly direction, lies the township of Smythesdale—a gold-field settlement, built on the further comer of a good sized flat, which is here surrounded by low ranges, well timbered with stringy bark and other eucalypti The tra veller need have no doubt as to the cause o! the rise of the town. JiOng before reaching it, he enters upon a re gion of gravel heaps, pipe-clay mounds, and shapeless holes innumerable—a region of such confusion made worse oonfoonded as will astonish him if he is new to the gold-fields, but which, if he is accustomed to them, he will regard famiikriy enough as 0 old workings." The initiated traveller will shrewdly suspect that there has been a fall, too, as well as a rise, for the Chinese are numerous in the land; and these sons of the flowery dominion are the jackals of the gold-fields, subsisting on what the first comers have left behind them. Their dog-kennel enoampment is just outside the town, and th...
