Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 21 October 1856

Local Intelligence. INGENUITY.—The model of a new kind   of machine, intended to surpass the old   cradle, was shown us last Monday. It is   more adapted for washing the fine sand of bottom of the creeks, known to contain some quantity of fine gold, of which a large portion necessarily escapes in the usual method of "toming." The machine   is constructed to work a pump, which sup- plies it with water, and can be regulated at pleasure. Under the hopper (which has a backward and forward motion) are several deep shelving slides, containing mercury for amalgamating the gold. A stream of water is constantly passing over it, and combined with the motion all the finer par- ticles of dirt are carried off, the amalgam and heavier part being left, which has then to be subjected to the usual method em- ployed in extracting the gold. The inven- tor proposes erecting a workable machine, when its superiority (if any) over the "tom" will be fully...

MR. BRAY'S NEW SYSTEM OF MINING ON DEEP LEADS. (To the Editor of the Star.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 October 1856

MK. BEATS NEW SYSTEM OF MIN- ! ma ON DEEP LEA ns. I {Ta tilt Editor of the Star.) I Sra,-Permit me, .through the medium of: your valuable paper, to offer a few - remarks on the present as weil'as the new system af mining suggested by Mr Bray. I believe, Sir,, that the time is at hand when the minors .should adopt every possible means of curtailing the es penses required to "work these deep leads, as. the yield of gold jon many of them is not paying more than ten shillings per man per day, and some not even that amount I know for a fact that the Sebastopol lead has not been pay ing more than £70 to £150, and £200 per maa the latter sum considered a first-rate claim for eight or twelve mouths hard work in water, J rock, &c. Considering these facts, which I ant' able to prove, and that many, yea nearly five sixths of them have been at work six,' seven, and eight months, and will, in all probability, ' have to work hard for nine months longer be fore they see the color of gold. ...

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 23 October 1856

Mining         The Congress scheme, which Crossman has recently employed himself in promulgating, is worthy the attention of the miners. There may be some who, regarding the projector as a man   of gas and crotchets, will be disposed to throw cold water upon anything brought before the public through such eccentric agency ; but such persons would do well to consider that few men have been earnest and free in thought, without acquiring a reputation for eccentricity, either more or less deserved. Our business of course is with what Crossman proposes, not with his peculiarities of manner ; to listen to what he has to say, and to take it for as much as it is worth. He proposes a congress of delegates from every lead in the district, in which shall be dis- cussed all questions appertaining to the interests of the whole district, and to that of the miners in particular ; the main points being to secure the best legislation a...

THE STAR THURSDAY, 23rd OCTOBER, 1856. WHY WE PAY. THE miners of Victoria are indebted to that obese politician, Mr Childers, for the invention of a gold export duty - a project was conceived by that im- maculate fifteen stone gentleman that gold ought to be taxed ; and, accord- ingly gold was taxed, with the con- sent, all but universal, of the the libe- ral representatives of the people - vi- delicet - towns people. About this time the miners, after a sacrifice of several lives, emerged from vagaband- age into a state of semi-respec- tability. A Gold Commission was appointed after the mischief, and a gold commission report, long delayed, was at length drawn up. The Commission, before closing its labors, examined the "'fat boy," on which occasion he displayed a quickness of perception, unexpected, and equalled only by that of his prototype, when he saw Jingle kiss Aunt Rachel. Dul-   ness of intellect disappeared, and total ignorance of the gold interest, in its real b...
