Mining Intelligenre. THE NICHOLSON GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 21 January 1860
tilinlg lntUligetnrc. TIE N'ICHOLSOVN GOLD FIELDS. Information respecting the new gold-field near the sources of, the arra, is .still very difficult to obtain, very little being known about it by any one nave themselves. One of these is at present in fMelbourne, but owing to the fact that the dis. trict has been but little explored, and on the go vernment maps affording but scanty iutelligence, the information he is enabled to impart is by no means so full as could be desired. It appears that in last October twelve month the Messrs. M'crae, one of whom hadbeen along time connected with the BIallarat district, began pros. pecting in the Dandenong Ranges, commen cing from a point near the lately discovered Em rald diggings. From that time to the present they havecontinued their researches, except when stop ped by the rain or the want of provisions, for which they had occasionally to return to the inhabited dis tricts. 'The result was, the discovery of a large number of streams, in the...

GOVERNMENT TENDERS. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 21 January 1860
GOVERNMENT TENDEIIS. [To the Editor of the WILUASTrOWN CnnaO ICLE.] Sir,-I beg leave to trespass on the columns of ynur journal a subject of grave importance in regard to contractors tendering for works in the Public Works office, especially in the tender for the Ann-street jet:y. at Williamstown; thatis-people wasting their time, and going to the expense of tendering for works, and the lowest tender being accepted, and not taken up by him. I think it was very wrong to pass over others that were next to him, and give it to a party who was a considerable figure higher. It is wrong of the Government to spend the pnblic money in the way that they do. "lhe balance that was over the pass-overs would have gone to c?tend the jetty further out, or the prosecutionl of some other public works that they stanid in great nerd of. Sir, I want no favouritism, but hone.ty and fair play, I am, Sir, yours respectfullv, A LOVERl OF FAila PLAY. January 1gth, 1860.

.THE A USTRIAN. VESSEL NOVAiRA AT THE STEIWART ISLA VDS.. We extract the following from an account of a visit to Stewart Islands, or Sikyana, communicated to the Sydneyl Morning Herald : " We were both surprised and grieved to hear an account from the natives of a visit paid 'by a man-of-war from Leghorn-this was all the infor" anation the natives could give concerning her-but we have snbsequently learned that the vessel..was the Novara, engaged on a scientific cruise on behalf ofi the Austrian Government. aIt apppears that about 20 months ago a man-of-war called at the islands, and landed .about 100 men, with muskets, who began to help themselves to cocoanuts and shoot pigs and fowls right and left.

NOBBLERS. (To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICEL.) [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 21 January 1860
N-OBBLERS.:rT ;.-. :. [To the Editor of the WILLLALsTrow CmRoNIcLE.] Sit,---Tthink it is a scandalous shame for the publicans of this Colony, and Williams town in particular, to charge sixpence for a small glass of beer or a spoonful of brandy, especially in such times as these, when men have scarcely half work, and when they are only about half. paid for that. I think you will admit that any moderate man can very well: drink six nobblers a day, without doing hiniself any harm, which at the rate of six pence a-glass is 21s. a-week, which upon an average is half as much as working men earn. And is not such a state of things sufficient to drive any man to. take: the pledge, or some thing equally as bad? I never was a.very ardent water-drinker';- but I 'would rather drink water till 'all is. blue thai paysixpence for a thimble-full of brandy or a draught of Murphy's beer.: In Sydney and other places threepence a glass is the regular price. Ale and porter, and wines and spirits are as c...
