SALE OF TOWN, SUBURBAN AND COUNTRY ALLOTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 19 November 1851

SALE OP TOWN, SUBURBAN AND COUNTRY ALLOTMENTS. On Thursday last, about two hundred .people assembled 'in the Cou1 1 House, on the occasion of the sale by auction of Town, Suburban, and Coun try Allotments. Amongst the number might be recognised a considerable proportion of diggers, and the spirited part they took in the proceedings of the day, tended most materially to enhance the prices of many of the lots. To have la-id at any price, appeared to be the prevalent rcsslve ; and, as will be seen by -the subjoined statistics, they bought it ati very respectable rates. For the first lot of two«roo.ds,;£44'.--was given, making £88 per acre ; and £23' was the smallest amount paid for. any of the allotments.

%otn\ toittllfatttft.'* *®he Btggtnos. THE TARSHISH DIGGINGS. -'' , TUENA CREEK. Since our -Saturday's notice of the proceedings at Tuena Creek, we have made enquiries from; several respectable parties who have -visited the spot, and from one and nil we learn that the state ments therein given are very moderate. One gen tleman informs us -that he was present when a Mr. Lowe, a Sydney lawyer, offered £10 for a tin dish of auriferous earth to Douglass' party, before it was washed ; but that they were unwilling to take less than £20, which Mr. Lowe considered too high. The eartlvwas subsequently washed by one -of the party, and six ounces of gold procured there jfrom. We have it on good authority that they ob tained 153 ounces last week out of a hole. not more than four to. five, feet long and three feet deep. The. earnings- of the diggers are variously esti mated, but all agree that great numbers are doing exceedingly well — some parties earning 3ozs. per dnyr and others as much as 6o...

English News. THE HOUSE OF COMMONS AND THE AUSTRALIAN LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 19 November 1851

CBnglfeD Xe&)8. THE HOUSE OF COMMONS AND THE AUSTRALIAN LEAGUE. (From the Morning Chronicle, July 31.J 1 Mr. ' Carlyle has remarked, in hip 'His- tory of the French Revolution,' that it is of apoplexy, bo to speak — of a plethoric, lazy habit of body — that, churches, kings- ships; and social institutions oftenest die. Assu redly, the last days'61 a worthless Parliamen tary session do not belie the saying. To the other negative trophies' of the session of 1851 must now be added a second count-out on one of the most critical questions affecting the security of our southern empire' — namely the compulsory continuance, of transportation to Van Diemen's Land. We shall not, of course, deny that honorable members had their reasons for absence ,on these .two occa sions. It is quite true that, in the one case the debate fell on the. eve of the Derby ; and in the other Mr. Anstey was the mover. Doubtless, the pleasures of, hope and the lessons of experience proved equally distract in...

Howl ShicHtgencc. ? -The v Golden Mountain. — During Mr. Har ? graves' sojourn in our district, he spoke to several individuals in a half-mysterious . manner of a golden mountain whose existence would at some future day be made public, to the infinite astonish ment of tho world. This story has been passed from mouth to mouth, and, like all tales of won derment, lias lost nothing by travel. Amongst the diggers of the Turon, plenty are to be found who entertain a confident- belief that this auriferous pile rears its glittering head in solitary grandeur at no - great distance from Louisa Creek, and their faith is somewhat confirmed by tho circumstance that large quantities of gold in mass aro periodically brought in for sale from the back country to the gold buyers of the Turon and Ophir. In fact, it is well known that several of theso dark-skinned children of the woods are in possession of largo sums of money, which has been, procured' in this manner.

. . THE TUKON POST. OFEIOE. -Complaints are still vory frequent about post office irregularities at tlio Turon, notwithstanding the appointment' of a staff'of officers to perform its duties. A correspondent writes us that a letter directed to him had been lying thoro from Sep tember 26th to November ,10th, although appli cation had been made daily; and'so far as our own experience is concerned, we are sorry to say that we cannot speak favourably. An important com munication addressed to this office by one of our correspondents about a fortnight ago has not yet come. to hand, and there are business people in. Bathurst who have experienced similar disap pointment. This state of things is really too bud, and almost leads us to despair of improvement. The post office management of this colony has in all time past been one mass of abominable jobbery, and a disgrace to the government who tolerated it. Individually we have been severe sufFerers, collectively -the community has .. suffered ...
