INDIGO AND CHILTERN. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 21 January 1860
INDIGO AND CHILTERN. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; . We do not remember for many a day, a week more fruitful, of "rush, oh !" than the past one. Not only in passible, but in some cases in impassible places has there been "pegging out,~' with of course an eye to future sinking when some lucky &nbsp; individual has bottomed, and layed violent hands on the "yellow-slave,'' so long buried under mo- ther earth. Rushes to all points of the compass, taking Chiltern as the centre. Some of course have turned out down-right " shicers," and whilst others still enjoy the position of favourites. Amongst the latter there are rushes to two gullies leading into the Suffolk. In the gully starting from Conness's old reef, the prospecting shaft bottomed on Thursday, at a depth over 100 feet. We have no authentic information as to the pro- spect, but we notice that the prospectors have be- gun driving: The gully is about half a mile long, and claims are pretty well all marked off...
BOWMAN'S FOREST, OVENS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 21 January 1860
BOWMAN'S FOREST, OVENS. &nbsp; For the third time during the last four years, gold is being obtained in payable quantities in Bowm:an's Forest. Not many hundred yards from the site of the shafts sunk by the first Beechworth Prospecting Association, but higher up the bank of the gully known as Cunningham's rush, a party of four have been prospecting for nearly sixteen months. They have sunk several shafts in the immediate vicinity, and have driven many hundred feet, attacking to the &nbsp; ground with a persistent industry worthy of the very highest reward. The results of their labors have been various. At times they have been able to knock out tucker, at others, the gold they got would not keep them from starvation, but so confident of ultimate success were they, that besides the value of their labour, in itself no slight sum, they have spent several hundred pounds in prospecting this part of the forest. They have, for some time past, been working with a whim, the de...

OUR WHARVES. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 10 March 1860
SOUR WHARVES. [To the LdVtor uf the ItLL.AOC Trowy CIno::Ict.L.] ,,-SIRi-1 looking over the Estimates which have just been passed, I find that large sums of- ouney have bcen voted by the Legislature for :the erection and extension of wharves at Mielbqurnie, Saudridge, Qucenscliffe, and other places; but I cannot see that a penny is to be appropriated to Williamstown, or that even the. namne.:of:.the. village", was mentioned during the'iliole tiine that the money for wharves was!being voted away. 'crhaps some of your readers whob arc posted up in Parliamentary mitters will' explain why it is that'.Williams town has beeii so quietly set aside': -Yours, tiuly ISQUIREE.
THE CASE BEING ALTERED ALTERS THE CASE. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 10 March 1860
THE CASE BEING ALTERED ALTERS THE CASE. [To. the Editor of the WILL?r?owS CIIONICLE.] SSu,--When. one of the cold-water men pro poses any improvemenit in the town, the first thing is to try and find out if he has any in terest in the matter; and if hehas none, even then, as in the Fergusou-street corner-peg case, bad motives.are imputed to him. But the case being different alters the case. Not a word was asked about the Yamra-street foot piath, even when the case is so glaring. Now, if: ever the -councillor gets in again, who is so much interested in Yarra-street, it is to be hoped that he will not be so ready to imputo badmotives .to other members of the Council in future. I will conclude by hoping that the Committee5 appointed to investigate the Coun cil expenses, &c., will recomnuend a measure that. will..b: more acceptable, to the ratepayers generally than the present arrangement. Yours, &c A? R.aer'YAvat.
