OUR PAST AND PRESENT. (From the Miner.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 October 1856

WITH regard to the means at our disposal for the attaining anything like an accurate computation of our population at the time of the first migration hence to Mount Alexander, we are bound to admit, that none ex- isted; save those powers of guessing and comparing , numbers which all present possess; how vague soever their notions may be, or how limited soever their experience. This being the case, it is plain that our estimate of the population on the Point at the period referred to is purely hypotheti- cal, and must be, therefore, only ap- proximately correct. But the same may be remarked of the guesses made with respect to our present numbers. No perfectly organised census ma- chinery has yet determined for us with rigid truthfulness the number of our population ; but the task of com- putation was far easier in the early days of our history than now, and there is little reason to consider the generally received calculation of num- bers as being very far wide of the actual amount. ...

BENDIGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 October 1856

BENDIGO.     Notwithstanding the great coonter-attraction of Dunolly, the Bendigo diggings were yielding large quantities of gold. Yesterday's "Courier   of the Mines" has the following.----- In spite of the croakings of those persons   who are so found of expressing themselves as fearful that Dunolly will swamp Bendigo, and that this, the richest and most thickly populated gold field in the colony, is decreasing in its yield, we may mention that the total amount of gold taken down yesterday was 13,071 ozs 10 dwts, of which 1722 ozs were forwarded from Heathcote, and the amount of cash forwarded by the same means was £6,179.   The deposits at the Sub-Treasury during the   past week have been the heaviest that have been known for some time, and the balance of gold   at present in the custody of the Sub-Treasurer is 16,262 ounces, so that Bendigo does not ap- pear to be quite exhausted yet.

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 October 1856

Local Intelligence.   ERRATUM.-In the report of Mr Humffray's     meeting at the Charlie Napier published in to- day's supplement, Mr Humffray is reported to have said that " Hayes' charge that he (Mr Humffray) had refused to attend, and give evi- dence or advice in his favor was a wicked and cruel lie." From the correspondence in an- other column, it will be seen that Mr Humffray referred not to Mr Hayes, but to the attorney who had made the statement to him!     RUMOURED DISCOVERY OF A NEW GOLD     FIELD.-The Kyneton Herald of the 4th inst., says :-A report having just reached us, through a respectable tradesman of this town,   that a new gold-field has been discovered in the vicinity of Malmesbury, we feel justified in giving it publicity.   BALLARAT ROAD DISTRICT - The Ballarat Road District has at last been proclaimed by his Excellency in the Government Gazette. ...
