Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 14 June 1851

Miscellaneous Extracts.   THE GREAT (EXPECTED) SEASON OF 1851. — Every one is expecting to make a fortune in the Great Exhibition Season of 1851 . Beds are, by anticipation, going up in the environs of London, and a large broker, in Broker's-alley, is selling so many bedsteads that he is making a fortune at full gallop with four- posters. Some body has even proposed to make the bed of the Serpentine avail- able, and perhaps it would not be a bad idea to throw a Macintosh cover across the whole surface, and thus turn it into one of those water beds which are sometimes so strenuously recommended by " the faculty." The plan would have the double effect of hiding an offensive object and promoting the convenience of the public; while the Serpen-   tine itself is well adapted for the purpose of re-   pose, as when anything is said about cleansing the river the authorities seem determined to go to sleep upon it. — Punch.     ...

Local Intelligence Summer Hill.. — There is a report 'abroad .that gold has been .found in abundance about Summer Hill, on Mr. Went.worth's land ; but we are in- formed by that gentleman, wb.o lias lately been exploring his estates in that locality, that the re- port is groundless. By an advertisement in ano- ther column, it .will be seen that parties are warned from digging there on pain of prosecution as tres- passers.             SIGN OF THE TIMES.— For the next Small Debts Court there are only 30 cases for adjudica-; tion, something less than half of the usual num ber. A storekeeper informed us yesterday, that he .had.ibeen agreeably .surprised, by the voluntary payment ot-sevoral small accounts which he had long-ago consigned to the' black book; and we heard of an individual, to /whom ah overdue bill had been presented, politely inviting the holder into the nearest inn. and paying. it off with.,the, '...

TUElMUltST ¥REK PRESS glnU JNmtag ^Journal, SATURDAY, JUNE 2i, 1851. ??MAOKA B3T VBRITAS ET PILSVALBBIT..' , OUR- wfeSTERN^UOADS. There is no department of the executive duties of the government of a voting coun try of more importance to its progress and welfare than the construction and repairs of its roads, and if desirous to adopt any out .ward and visible test of the degree of pros perity or civilization to which any com munity had attained, we should look to the condition of its great public roads, and ?thoroughfares as affording that test.* The .most, powerful Empire of olden times and -the most promising of states in the present age, afford ample testimony of their appre ciationof the truth now stated. The public roads of Home are amongst the most glorious existing monuments of its former grandeur, and the lines of communication opened up through the interminable forests and wilds of America, are the admiration of the world, and may be numbered amongst the most active and pow...

A FEW FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 21 June 1851

A FEW FACTS. The gold procured by Gorringe the Carcoar blacksmith and his party was purchased on Wednesday last by Messrs. Solomons & Co. for £2S0! 1 7s. Its weight was 94ozs. .5 dwts., and it consisted of lumps weighing severally 24, 15, and 12 ozs., and other pieces of smaller size. The party had been three weel^s at work and consisted of five meri; About £1500 worth of gold has been purchased in town each of the last two weeks. It is supposed by those who have good opportunities of judging that £20, Q00 worth of gold had been got at the'OpTuir diggings up to last Saturday. Mr. DunB. ford purchased 2ozs. 7dwts. 7grs. of Turon1 gold from a respectable looking man on Monday last, who ;had been out merely to look at the pl-ice. He was so satisfied with the profits of his labour, that be started on We'dnesdav with a cart containing all $he. necessaries for th,e occasion. The Tiiron ffoltl is of a deeper yellow than that from Oplnr, and Mr. ijunsford thinks it .will work better...

(From our Turon Correspondent. ) [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 21 June 1851

fFrom our Turon Correspondent.) Since my last communication I have done very little in the. way of gold-finding.' My time has been principally occupied in. examining the War rangunuia but better known as the Crudinc Creek ?Af-n,u\*£ T huv« nrnsnpc.tp.d' over' a considerable scope, and from appearances I expect to find gold in almost every creek that runs into the luron river. So far as my explorations have proceeded the precious metal appears to be less plentiful in the Crudine than'in most of the other creeks. Ihe great drawback, as I anticipated, proves to be the scarcity of water, particularly in the tributary creeks, and if this be an obstacle now in the winter season, how will extensive raining operations be conducted in the summer, with perhaps not more ?k.m .int. in\U\ nf wnt^r fmntaire in ten Ifilles of most of our rivers and creeks ? A shepherd of Mr. Richards found about an ounce of gold a day or two ago on the top of a hill just, behind the 'head station. The large par ti...

The Diggings. Ophir, Monday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 21 June 1851

$i)e diggings. CFron our Ophir Cqrrespondent Ophir, Monday Evening. Saturday's proceedings at the diggings as sumed a similar aspect to those of the former few days ; but a decided improvement was apparent in the earnings of many of the miners. One. person picked, up a lump of 19 ounces, and many who liail hnnn toilins- almost without hope, met good rewards for their perseverance. . Sunday was marked as usual for its quset ; the day of rest appointed for man was geneially ob served, and but few instances occurred of parties working. In the afternoon, after divine service, a meeting was held for the purpose of petitioning the Governor to reduce the license fee. The reso lutions which had been prepared for the occasion were drawn up without the least regard to Lindley Murray. In fact, they could scarcely be termed English; and, moreover, the style of wording was anything but calculated to wiu over the obdu? rate heart or a monsy loving Government. This circumstance, added to the unsui...

TURON DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 21 June 1851

TURON DIGGINGS. The following communication from the Govern- ment Geologist, Mr. Stutchbury, to Mr. Commis sioner Hardy, was posted opposite Mr. Meyer's store, as formerly stated, by our Correspondent. As the information therein contained may be of service to intending gold-diggers, we gladly give it insertion : — . Geological and Mineralogical Survey, June 9, 1851.   Sir,— I have the honor to advise you of points, which, I believe, would repay parties working for gold. They are as follows : — 1. The great bar in the Macquarie River, at Walgumbulla, about three miles below the junc- tion of the Turon. 2. The bar at the junction of the Turon, on the Macquarie River. 3. The several bars on the Turon for 8 miles up, especially the first three from the junction. 4. On the Macquarie, at (Neeli) Nelly's corner, and the bars above and below— 3 or 4 miles either way. At each of the above-named places I found gold by prospecting with a small pan, and without go- ing any depth. I...

GOLD AT FITZGERALD'S VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 21 June 1851

GOLD AT FITZGERALD'S VALLEY. Scarcely a day elapses that reports are not circulated of new discoveries having been made, and with the spirit of explora- tion which is now abroad we are quite prepared to learn of the existence of new gold fields from every point of the compass. Although struck with astonishment and ad- miration at the disclosures of Mr. Hargraves when he formerly announced, in Mr. Ar- thur's room to the people of this district, the stupendous fact that the region from the Blue Mountains to an unlimited extent in land was one immense gold deposit, we no more doubted the truth of his statements than we do at this moment. There was that in his quiet, unostentatious manner of communicating the discovery, coupled with the samples of the precious metal produced by him which bore an air of truthfulness about it and carried conviction to our minds. Every day furnishes some new fact in confirmation of his statement— that we were surrounded by gold on all sides, and were daily...

This desolate looking region will shortly pu\ on a gay appearance, and a9the frosts are very light on the lower portion of the river, we may soon expect good sheep feed. We had a few heavy showers last month, but they were very partial. A small cloud might be noticed on the horizon, and in a short space of time a body of water would come tumbling down more like a cataract than a thunder storm. In one place the river ran a good stream for about twenty miles, and about the same time a hail storm or rather an ice shower fell with terrific violence. The trees were htript of their leaves and the bark cut in a remarkable manner, on the weather side, 1 ...

The Diggings. FOSTER'S DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 25 June 1851

3tfie Dfggmgs. . FOSTER'S DIGGINGS. In describing the country about Fitz gerald's Valley in our Saturday's issue we were compelled from want of time to make use of such information as was at hand, but upon reference to respectable parties from the locality, have since discovered that* several material errors crept into our state ments which we now proceed to rectifv. The creek upon which the diggings are situated does ?2o? take its rise at Fitzgerald's Mount as stated by us, but has its source at a place called Smith's Hill, about four miles from Mount Macquarie and ten from Fitzgerald's Valley. The creek to which we referred is merely a tributary of the other. Mr. Jar dine, from whom these particulars are ob tained, informs us that the country about the head of the creek is what is termed in grazing phraseology cold and sour, being pretty much of the same character as King's Plains, from which it is not far distant. The two creeks form what is known as the Evans' Plains creek, whic...
