OLD BAILEY PRACTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 11 December 1855

OLD BAILEY PRACTICE. Numerous as arc the privileges of the Press, wc do not think that the indiscriminate attacking of 'anything or anybody is one of them; and fore most amongst those things whicji are entitled to forbearance are the judges who sit in our law courts, and tho members of the legal profession who practice there. Fqr the protection of liberty and for the ends of justice, it is necessary to allow considerable latitude to counsel in conducting their cases ; but when a member of that profession which claims to be par exccllence gentlemanly, avails himself of that latitude to insult both the judge before whom, and the brother-barrister against whom, he is pleading, it becomes the duty of the Press to expoae and castigate that person, who, equally wanting in respeeot both to himself and the court in which lie is practising,'obtrudes that vulgarity which, if natural to him, should be displayed elsewhere than in a law court. Yesterday evening an exhibition of a most dis gracef...

THE MAIL CONTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 11 December 1855

I . • « I THE MAIL CONTRACTS. ' I As will be observed in our advertising columns, Mr. R. J. Howard, proprietor of the Argus Line of Coaches, hns obtained the contact for the con veyance of the mails to and from Castlemaine and Bcndigo. The contract, we believe, lias been ac cepted for the ensuing two years. 'Mr. Howard is weir known Us having started the first line of coaclies between Castlemaine and Melbourne, and ' is a general favorite both at Bcndigo and Forest Creek; wo-therefore, believe that v;e only echo the general sentiment of the community, in wish ing him success in the undertaking. - The manner in. which the contracts have been drawn up, however, are anything but satisfactory, and certainly evince on the part of the Govern ment a most'culpable negligence of the growing requirements of these important districts.

BALLAARAT. FURTHER PARTICULARS OF THE FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 11 December 1855

BALLAA1UT. FURTHER PARTICULARS 01' THE KIRK. In one short week, ten of our fellow-colonists Iiavo been hurried into the presence of their Creator—the merchant and the miner'alike liavo been stricken down in the full vigour of their man hood, We know that these, calla have solemnised the minds of all, and therefore forbear moralising, as well as we .may, under the extraordinary cir cumstance, leaving the simple fa tits to work their legitimate influence on the mincta of our readers. The fire of this morning is still .involved in mystery. It appears that it broke out between twelve and one o'clock, and that it began in the basement story j but tlie means by which it origi nated are still unknown. There were no naptlm iampsj as was at first supposed ; and the suppo sition that it was the work of an incendiary seems very improbable.

This was an action tried at the last Nisi Priu-tt sittings. The plaintiff was the owner of a quartz crushing machine, with steam-engine, &c. Ho entered into an agreement with the defendants to let the machine and engine to them for a term of three years, at a rent to be measured by tho profits,—viz., one half the clear nctt profits of working it. The agreement stipulated that tfie defendants were to transport the mncliino and engine to Bendigo, and there to erect the same in proper and suitable buildings for their protection. They were to keep books of accounts ; and they were to devote all reasonable time to the proper working of the machinery, and they were prohi bited from leaving the working thereof to any other person or persons than themselves.

CASTLEMAINE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 11 December 1855

CASTLEMAINE. A meeting was held last week, at which letters were read from Mr. Pykc, M.L.C., to the effect that the Government seemed inclined to hasten the General elections, to which the liberal members were opposed. A petition to the Legislature in favor of the Ballot was adopted, to be presented by Mr. Pyke. There is nothing of interest to report concerning the diggings, except the following item in refer ence to Kangaroo, from the Mail;—"We havo been informed that some parties on the Hard Hill, who have recently bottomed their holes, have found gold in quantities that promise to be very remunerative. At Kangaroo Flat, also, numbers are doing well (near the Kangaroo Inn), and ap 'pear to have made up their minds that they hayo their summer diggings before them."

M'IVOR. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Heathcote, 10th December. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 11 December 1855

M'lVOR. (FROM OUR OWN CQUUESPONDKVT.) Iieathcote, 10th December. Rumors are rife 'respecting, new diggings near the junction of the Colilian and the Canipaspe, and though I am not in a position at present to say what is doing out there, I know several parties who intend proceeding thither in the course of a few days. There is also a good deal of talk about diggings in the vicinity of Speed's Gold Bag Inn, where, it is said, about a hundred are,at work. A short time will, I doubt not, test the truth of these re ports ; but as gold has, for some time, been known to exist in both localities, it te far from improbable that.good- diggings will be found there. Another highly auriferous quartz vein has been discovered in Argyle Gully, near the surface ; another proof that il'Ivor, though long neglected, and east into the shade by rushes to more favored localities, lias within itself the elements of pros perity, which will, before long, restore it to some tiling like its former position as ...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. ("FROM OUR SII.VINO REI'OKTEK.) ' The want of water is now severely felt in Eagle hawk, California, Sailors, and Long Gullies. We ave sorry to say that we lwve great complaints against the Chinese for indiscriminately destroying the, water in these places. It is a pity that the Local Court, with so selcct arid carefully chosen a body have hitherto done so little to protect the European against the unfair, intrusion of ,;thcsc Celestials. • Our Police Court is constantly delayed with cases in which these gentry bring charges of assault against our countrymen, in many of which, doubt less, they have been roughly handled ; but as-Miv; Hopkins said in one case last week, " the Anglo-' Saxons will not give way'to these Chinese." Their presence here will involve a very serious question',1 and one which must sooner or latc^ be fully dis cussed.

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 7th, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 11 December 1855

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUK OWN COKRESrONDENT.) December'7 th, 1855. The policy of the Government in their recent action on the new Constitution Bill has been now fully developed, and the interpretation they put upon " responsible government" clearly ascer tained. According to their reading of the bill it took full effect on the day it was proclaimed, and responsible government came into operation at the same time. New commissions in consequence, at their suggestion, were issued, and the old officials came out with new titles regenerated in the most orthodox fashion, having thrown off the old man and put on the new. This is the position in which they describe themselves to be placed. Let us see how this theory of responsibility operates: A member of the Legislative Council proposes a series of resolutions, condemnatory of the course pursued by the Government; tantamount to a vote of want of 'confidence. The question comes to a 1 division, ,and ministers have a majority of one, I there bein...

BALLAARAT. (From the mining Reporter of the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 11 December 1855

• BALLAARAT. (From the mining Reporter of the Times,) The whole mining population of our immediate district (excluding Magpie, but ' including ' the rang&s from the Black Ilill to the Springs,) may he computed at from 7,000 to 8,000 adults ; and this number being increased 150 per cent, to allow for the other people on the mines who arc not miners, will give 17,500 souls—a far more correct return than that which was furnished by the Go vernment dt the taking of the last census. Of those, adult miners, Eureka may boast of possessing the lion's share—say 2,500, which is perhaps rather under than over the mark, ;as that number will not supply full hands for more than 300 claims. At the .Gravel Pits we may hazard 1,000 as the number of actual miners on the Gravel Pits and Bakery ilill leads; for, doubtless, there are here upwards of 100 claims^ whether sinking, or work ing, or washing up, or in an inexplicable state of neglect. At the Red rlill all the claims are bottomed— most ...
