Graham's Town, August 30.^ — Not- withstanding the presence of a military de tachment in our neighbourhood, occasional depredations have still to be recorded; though they were by no means so frequent as they were a few weeks since. Mr. Palmer, of Cypher Fontein, has lost five more valuable horses, and Mr. Phillips, whose loss of part of his cattle was mentioned lately, has now been robbed of the remainder.

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS.

I am therefore disposed to think it may prove to be entirely a Wicked fabrication.'

Colonial News. VICTORIA MOUNT: ALEXANDER DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 22 November 1851

COLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA.         MOUNT ALEXANDER DIGGINGS.     (FROM THE ARGUS' CORRESPONDENT.)   Having an opportunity by private hand, I send you a hurried report of a little that is going on. I arrived here last-night at 6 o'clock, and was highly amused with the novelty of the scene. Though gold is found more or less along the creek, the richest deposit appears to be at one point, and at this point there are 122 tents pitched, containing as near as I could judge, 610 persons, independently of about 400 in the neighbourhood. 'The Commis- sioner's (Mr. Powlett's) tent stands on another hill opposite, and the whole scene is highly interesting. As soon as the evening meal is finished, which is at dusk, bugles are sounded, fiddles played, songs sung, guns fired, and this, coupled with the nu- merous bright fires on each side of the creek, gives a stranger some hope of a good -night's quarters. &...
