LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 19 December 1856

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [ Gipps Land Gold Fields.—The, fol lowing- significant, and cheering- notice ap peared in a late number of the Ovens Constitution;■ A1 statement from Messrs. Clark and Sons; gold-brokers, ofMelbourne, was published in our columns,a short time since, to the effect, that the Gipps Land gold-fields had not received that attention i which their importance merits;, but there can be little doubt that when once the mind of the digging population is really directed to theOmeo: and Nicholson, they will wend their way hitherward, and the hidden treasures of our district will begin ■ to be developed. / Although matters have been kept very quiet among the diggers at our gold fields, we have reason to believe that handsome sums have, been realised by; .steady,, persevering-.workmen j but/ as Ave ha ve no dpsire to produce any undue, ex citement, we; refrain from, saying: anything-.: thati, might he construed■; into puffing ' " Departures for the Omeo.—Letters having readied t...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. Tarraville, December 6, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 19 December 1856

CORRESPONDENCE; To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. Tarnivillci, December C, 185G. Sir,—Will you allow us tocask j'our Alberton correspondent for a little explanation of some parts of,-his .last production. Not tliat they are much more obscure than parts of the Alberton memorial, but they might perhaps be more easily understood if differently expressed; for instance— " There was a meeting * .* * at Tarraville * * * 011 the 18th October, 1855, at which there were two resolutions respectively proposed and seconded by four individuals." Does this mean that each of the two resolutions was proposed and seconded by four individuals? " And the the resolutions subjoined will shew the disittgenious character of what is pompously termed a public meeting." What is the meaning of disingenious? and why pompously? '■You endeavor to shew that our portion of the district is not the most destitute of roads." If ' Observer' will explain what constitutes a destitute road, we may be enabled to fo...

SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 19 December 1856

SALE. [fEOM OUR OWN CiOniUSSPONDENT.] Nothing of much importance has trans pired since my last. Mr. Oldliam, the contractor, still non est, so that there appears to be but little chance of the timber crossing over the morass being1 completed by next winter. The weather during-the past week has been unusually changeable and oppressive, many people complaining' of colds, &c., in consequence. The late heavy rains appear to have done much good for the crops, which I am told are in a very forward and satisfactory state. The grass on the plains is at least a foot high. It should however be remembered that this is a source of danger, more 'especially in open country where there is no timber to obstruct the full force of ; the sun's, rays; farmers and owners of cultivated ground, therefore, will do well to take, every possible ^precau tion against 'busli-fires which may be an ticipated at this season of the year.

PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA. council, 11th December, 1856. The Council met at three o'clock, the President in the chair. , Dr. Tierney gave notice of intention to ask for a return of the number of immi grants sent to Warrnambool during the last two years, and whether it was the in tention or Government to supply Warrnam bool with suitable labor before the coming harvest season, as just now there was hardly any labor at all, and it was feared the crops could not be reaped. Mr. McCombie moved for a select com mittee to inquire into the practicability of uniform legislation for the Australian colo nies on the upset price of land, the preven tion of transportation, carriage, postage,' military, and lighthouses; > but after a little discussion the motion was withdrawn. ■ ; Mr. Hood moved a.series of resolutions having reference to the necessity of dividing the Australian continent equally among- the different colonies, which/ after debate, was also withdrawn.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. MELBOURNE MARKETS. 20th December, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 26 December 1856

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. MELBOURNE MARKETS.. 20th December, 185G. During the week the markets have ruled rather heavy with a decided downward tendency in flour and grain. This partial stagnation is supposed to arise from-increased eartuge rates to the in terior, and a general disinclination to lay in large stocks at the close of the year. It is said that the fall in Hour induced some speculation, and on Friday the priccs ranged from X18 10 to £20. Flour at the Melbourne Mills.—Fine, X20 10s; seconds, £19; Haxull, £25; Chillian, £19 per ton; bran, Is. lOd. per bushel. Oats have declined, Scotch, Gs. 6d.; colonial, 8s. 6d. per bushel.

Candles have giveaway; Is. 3d. to Is. 4d. per lb. are the current rates. Baltic deals have declined, and American lum-' ber a little higher. Brandt is dull o...

SALE. [from our own correspondent.1 Many of your readers will be sorry to ' hear ot the death of Mr. Robert Pitcbett, (one of the oldest residents in this district,) which took place at his residence on Friday last the 26th ult. He had been ill for about eight weeks, suffering severely from dropsy. Dr. Arbuckle attended him till he died. He we,s buried in the cemetry \ without the township this morning, the / 27th, and his funeral .was well attended by a numerous company of his friends and neighbours. Information was received here on Saturday last that a man-in the employ of Mr. Bolden, of Strathfieldsaye, was killed while on his way here from Stratford. The unfortunate man, it appears, had been drinking at Stratford and was drunk when he left it, and was riding his horse in the direction of this place being accompanied by his son; when a few miles on his way he fell heavily from his horse and was killed on the spot instantaneously; . lie never moved or spoke afterwards.

The bygone year was ushered in with high hopes and brig-lit, expectations which, in few instances,' were realized; hut in many have been blighted. The joys and sorrows,. pleasures and pains, among the human family, during the year, have, no doubt, maintained their due proportion y and a similar uniformity may be confident\x=req-\ l}r expected during the year-on- which we have now entered. :■ There is nothing in this world that can fully and permanently satisfy the cravingv heart; of man ; and, therefore, disappointed in one pursuit, we. eagerly; turn to something else, in the vain hope that eventually we shall certainly oh-: tain what we so ardently desire. ^ ■ Hope springs eternalin the human breast; Man never is, but always to be blest.
