Several witnesses were were examined as to the undeveloped re sources of the district, and there was no ditterence or opinion as to the superficial character of the gold workings up to date. It was stated taat all the operations caiTied on. so far went to show that the great majority of the reefs faulted at about 100ft. depth, taking the average bases of the hills around Bright as the starting point of the sinking. It was argued that deep sinking should be encouraged in preference to shal low workings, as the surface had been prospected over and over again, j It was highly probable that the i faulted lodes that had proved very I payable near the surface would be ' easily traced, and worked again at a ' great profit. One witness asserted that since the prospecting vote had been in vogue there had been less prospecting in the district than pre viously....

Mining Nuggets. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 21 February 1891

Mining Nuggets. Not only does the Omeo district abound in gold and tin, dut recently bismuth, graphite ~ and silver have been, added to the list of valuable ? metals clisco vered. Of gold and tin j little need be said, as they speak for themselves. Of the graphite and j Bismuth little is known beyond their ! existence ; but the value of the silver discovery is in a fair way of being proved. The discovery of silver lead dates back some years, but was never deemed of sufficient value to warrant | the expenditure of money in prospect ing it, and in all probability the ground would still be lying idle had not Messrs Battersby and Co. made fresh discoveries of sufficient value to convince them that the lodes were well worth opening up. The argen tiferous belt trending east south east extends for a known distance of about four miles long, by about a quarter of a mile wide, viz., from the Limestone Gap on the road to Granite Flat, to a point on the opposite side of the Mitta Mitta river.

Mining Commission. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 21 February 1891

Mining Conmiisswti. : Tb^®[|ning Commission visited | Chiltej^^eechworth, and Bright on Saturday and Monday., Messrs Davidson, D. Fletcher, D. Turnbull. L. Murphy, M. May, T. Little, and others gave evidence. Mr Davidson favored the idea of continuing boring at El Dorado. He mentioned the fact that the geological plans ot the dis trict were not correct, and recom mended their revision. He advocated the prospecting grant being devoted to minerals other than gold, and a special exception should be made for the Mitta Mitta. Mr- Fletcher did not think any more money from the Prospecting Vote should be spent at El Dorado, as he did net think the prospects warranted it. Wooragee was a locality more worthy of atten tion, as there was a flat four or five miles square well worth a trial. He thought provision should be made in the act for a man relinquishing worked-out ground without throwing up the whole lease. Mr D. Turnbull was not very sanguine about El Dorado, but it might be tested by b...

A Comfortable Homestead. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 21 February 1891

A Comfortable Homestead. 1 ? :o: ? (By Our Own Reporter.) A few days since I paid a visit to Allan's Flat, en route to K.ergun yah and Sandy Creek, and prior to ascending the gap I gave Mr Richard son a call. This homestead is very picturesquely and conveniently situated in a flat below the gap, and a cursory inspection convinced me that the owner in settling there had em. braced every advantage for the establishment of a comfortable home. Everything appears to be favourable to a combination of industries, and the farm as a whole shows what I could be done by many similarly situated farmers. In the first place the house is surrounded by fruit trees, giving an attractive appearance to the place, besides supplying the household with fruit throughout the year. Barns and outhouses evidence the care that is taken of the stock, ; poultry, &c. and the many con veniences to be seen show that Mr Richardson believes in a system in everything. Just outside the barn we notice a fine res...

Mrs Morton shook it off and hurried to the house, where with a razor she made an incision over the bite. She was then brought into town and treated by Dr. Leslie, who used Dr. Mueller's strychnine cure with suc cessful results. The action of the French postal authorities, in deciding to surcharge | all letters received from Australia ! bearing only 2|d postage, has had the effect of causing the Postmaster General to follow the lead of South Australia in deciding to revert to the old rate of postage — 6d per half ounce — to all foreign countries except the United Kingdom.
