IMMIGRANTS AND IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 2 January 1857

IMMIGRANTS AND IMMIGRATION. We have now received 16 married couples and about 35 single females, in addition^ to we 13 immigrants previously landed at thiI port, out of the three, hundred voted by the Legislative Council to be sent to Gfipps Land during the year 1856. Had u not been for the agitation we are persuaded that not even so many would have /been sent here. When referring to this subject, in our last, we mentioned our suspicion that the Land and Emigration Commissioners had received no instructions about the distribution of the immigrants on arrival here. The correspondence relative to immigration, moved for by Mr. Davis, has been laid before the Legislative Assembly, and we find that our suspicions were not very wide of the mark. Among the correspondence is a letter from Mr. Childers, dated 26th August, 1856, which contains the only reference to the distribution of immigrants, and it is doubtful if that letter had reached London when Mr. Davis asked for the correspondence....

THE INSTALLATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 2 January 1857

THE INSTALLATION. At an early hour on the 26th arrangements for the reception of His Excellency Sir Henry Barkly were commenced. Workmen, were busily engaged erecting a platform within the enclosure, fronting the Government Offices, on which the ceremony of swearing-in was to,be performed. This platform or pavilion was covered over with white and red calico, and as elaborately decorated as possible during the short time employed in the operation. The floor, sides and approach were covered with crimson cloth, and the supports were concealed by festooned pink and white calico. The English, French, American, Turkish, Sardinian, and other flags were suspended, and in the centre a large table and chairs were placed for the accommodation of the Executive Government, and the other public functionaries who were to take part in the proceedings.

ARRIVAL OF SIR HENRY BARKLY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 2 January 1857

ARRIVAL OF SIR HENRY BARKLY. At ten o'clock on Tuesday night, 23rd December, the Oneida anchored in Hobson's Bay. This vessel is the pioneer of the European and Australian line of Royal Mail steam ships. She left Southampton at three o'clock in the afternoon of Sunday, 19th October, spent eleven days in coaling at St. Vincent, St. Helena and Cape Town, and has therefore been only a little over fifty three days under steara or sail. The Oneida is of 2400 tons burthen, has magnificent accommodations, and is commanded by Captain Hyde, formerly of the Argo, which performed the voyage to Melbourne in 64 days. On the arrival of the Oneida the block ship fired a salute of 17 guns ; the Victoria fired salvos of rockets and burned yardarm lights, and various other vessels in the bay fired off rockets' and exhibited variegated lights. The booming .of the guns on the bay at that late hour astonished the Melbournites and the Suburbanites for a short time, but the cause was speedily ascertained ...

MISCELLANEOUS INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 2 January 1857

MISCELLANEOUS INTELLIGENCE. I3y the arrival of the Uneida, Jing\x=req-\ lish intelligence to the 18th Oct. lias come to hand; which is fifteen days later than previous advices. There was considerable apprehension of a rupture between the Allies and the King of Naples, at the sailing of the steamer. Indeed there was then scarcely any hope'of an; amicable, termination to the subjects in dispute, and the recall of the French Minister was said to have been fully determined upon. The allied squadrons had been ordered to approach Naples, but the admirals were to discountenance any demonstration on the part of the Neapolitans, and the people were to leave their cause entirely in the hands of England and France. The Vienna correspondent of the Tivies strongly suspects something passing between France and .Russia which may end in an alliance between Napoleon and Alexander. Some rather serious conflicts had taken place between the people and the gendarmerie in various parts of Italy, and the ...

The Courier of the Mines has much pleasure and pride in adverting to the extraordinary fact,, that upwards of 165 acres of oats have,been cut down, stacked, and threshed by Mr. Mouatt, on his farm at Yarraberg, within the short space of three weeks. It was done by a machine. The wheat crop at Kangaroo Bay, this season, exceeds anything ever before seen .in ...

Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 9th January, 1857. POSTAL COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 9 January 1857

Hanlr titiartoiatt, Friday, 9th January, 1857. POSTAL COMMUNICATION. We observe that Mr. King- forms one of a Committee to inquire into the postal arrangements throughout the colony, and how the service is conducted. We hope that both Mr. King and the other members of the Committee will set about the business in earnest, and institute a searching investigation, and that some superior system of Mail Service for Gipps Land than has hitherto existed may be devised. For some time past we have been mainly dependent upon the Port Albert Steam Navigation Company's vessel for the mails, particularly those of the inhabitants connected with the Lower District; but as the Government have not entered into any contract with the Company for carrying the mails, there is no binding- obligation as to the time of sailing or as to sailing at all, if it do not suit the interest or conve-. nience of the Company. All that the Government does is to send a mail by the steamer when she sails; and all the Co...

"THE WHITE SLAVE TRADE." IMMIGRANTS FOR GIPPS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 9 January 1857

"THE WHITE SLAVE TRADE." IMMIGRANTS FOR GIPPS LAND. In the Argus of the 22nd December, a letter, under the heading1 of "The White Slave Trade," appeared from a Mr, G. L. Robinson, who hails from " Eastern Hill,'.' •Melbourne. The writer bitterly complains against the Immigration Agent for illegally defrauding him of a female servant, who had been highly recommended hy the Captain of the Medrvay, but had been detained in durance by the Immigration Agent, who adopted that method of securing the coveted female domestic for one of his friends. After disposing of the'above grievance, this Mr. Robinson launches out in snarling abuse of the Government for allowing any of the immigrants to be forwarded to Gipps Land. He says:— " On the afternoon of the second or third day after the arrival of the Medmay in the port of Melbourne, the vessel (as usual, and very properly) being tabooed against the entrance of any one until the immigrants were landed, there came on board the Med\x=req-\ reay so...

IMMIGRATION MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 9 January 1857

IMMIGRATION MEETING. In accordance with a requisition presented to G-. D. Hedley, M.D., J P.» a Public Meeting was held in the Court House, Tarraville, on Tuesday last, at four o'clock, to take into consideration the want of accommodation for Immigrants arriving in the district, and to petition the Government to erect a suitable depot forthwith. A goodly number of gentlemen were in attendance, and great unanimity of sentiment prevailed as to the important object for which they were met together. , Dr. Hedley commenced the proceedings by reading the requisition presented to him, and expressing his ready compliance with it. It was then on the motion, we think, of Mr. Hart, requested to take the chair. The chairman after making a'few remarks as to desirableness of the object they wished to press upon the Govetnment, said he would be willing to hear any gentleman that bad a resolution to bring forward on the^matter.

LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 9 January 1857

; LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. • This time we can truly assert that we have lata English intelligence, the splendid screw steamer Simla having arrived from England with the mails in [fifty-Jive days! The first of the new Royal Mail Company's steamers, the Oneida, made the passage in sixty-four days, and now the second has run in fifty-five days, a pretty fair beginning for the new Company. The Simla left Southampton at three o'clock, p.m., on the 12th November, was detained four days coaling at St. Vincent, arri ved at Port Phillip Heads on Tuesday evening at six o'clock, and may be said to have made the run in fifty-one days, which, we apprehend, is the quickest voyage on record. . , The news, especially the political news, is of very little consequence being principally composed of rumors and cogitations. A frightful accident had occurred at | Surrey Gardens by which seven persons were instantly killed, and a number badly wounded. , ' A 'fall of arches at the Art-Treasures | Exhibition, M...

THE ARTIST AND THE DOG STEALER A certain celebrated'painter'.of animals as they never were painted :before, and may never be painted again, had painted the portrait of a. splendid Newfoundland dog, but he strayed or was ? stolen as he was returning from ; his last sitting. His owner was inconsolable ; . but knowing his distinguished artist's large and intimate acquaintance with persons . who confidentially concern themselves with: other people's dogs, repaired to him for.advice,, and authorised him of the magnificent'"palette to offer £10 reward for .the recovery of the missing favorite.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. In their last gold circular, Messrs. W.

We have often alluded to the auriferous riches of the Gipps Land country, as for the last two years and a half we have known a party working there, to bring up their 400 or 500 ounces in the course of a few months' work; but the locality is yet a secretThis serves to confirm the opinion we lately expressed, that the miners have too long neglected the gold fields of Gipps Land, which, if only energetically worked, might turn out to be, at least, as rich as any in the colony. .

About the 16th November I received one of the mares from Mr. Clark, branded T in a circle on the off side of the neck. Upon making a demand for the other mare Mr. Clarke told tne that during his absence Mr. Davis, of the Hill Top, had taken her away ; this was done without my authority, and I have neither sold the mare myself nor empowered any one else to do so.
