THE HON. C. E. JONES. MINISTEU OF H0ADS AND RAILWAYS, AND COMMIS SIONER OF PUBLIC WOBES. Charles Edward Jones was born and edu cated at Devonport, in Devonshire. At 21 years of age he removed to Newark on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, to fill a situa tion as money order clerk in the post office there, and left Newark for Austra lia, where he arrived in 1850, before the auriferous wealth of the colony was known. His varied career may be regarded as indica tive of multifarious capacity and many-sided tendencies.

THE MELBOURNE BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. The Melbourne Benevolent Asylum is un doubtedly one of the most valuable of our charitable institutions. It affords shelter to an average number of 500 persons, principally the most helpless and deserving of owr poor, consisting as they do of the ag- d of both sexes — the blind, the maimed, the diseased and decrepid. They are admitted by the vote of the com mittee of management, and every precaution is adopted to prevent the charity being im posed upon. Thoae who are physically capable of' earning a livelihood for themselves ate rigidly exoluded . ; persons of this class who happen to get' into a state ef destitution from temporary want of employment being referred to the Immigrants' Aid Society, where their oases receive due attention. The inmates of the Asylum are, therefore, almost entirely confined to poor persons who are utterly in capable of helping themselves so far as to procure their own means of sustenance.

THE GYMPIE GOLD-FIELD.   From the report furnished by Mr. C. H Oyly Aplin, Government Geologist of South Queensland, we extract the following, having reference to the Gympie diggings :—" The Gympie gold field is situated on the River Mary, about sixty miles in a direct line from its mouth, though not more than thirty miles from the nearest point of the coast, and at an elevation of about 400 feet above the sea. The workings have hitherto been principally con- fined to the creeks, gullies, and ridges, on the east side of the Mary, commencing at Gympie Creek and extending up the river to about half a mile above the junction of the One Mile or Deep Creek (named Twelve Mile Greek on the map), a distance of about 4 miles. In breadth they vary from one to two and a half miles. The physical features of the area to which min- ing operations are at present limited do not differ materially from those which the eastern side of the valley of the Mary presents for   sev...

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 8 August 1868

THE MONTH^ ^ Politically speaking, the month has been ooonpied with the Ministerial elections, which in several constituencies were spiritedly con tested. Mr Grant* Minister of Lands and member for Avoca, was returned without oppo sition ; likewise Mr Sullivan, the Minister of Mines, and Mr Casey, Minister of Justice, both members for Mandurang. There were four seats contested, viz., Morning ton, where Mr DI'Gullooh, the Chief Secretary, was op posed by Mr Gillies ; Ballarat . West, where. Mr Jones. Minister of Roads and Railways, and Mr Yale, Commissioner of Customs, were opposed by Mr Doane ; South Bourke, where Mr G. P. Smith, Attorney-General, was op posed by Mr O'Grady ; and lastly, the' Ovens, where Mr G. V. Smith, Postmaster- General, was opposed by Mr Carter. Though the battle in every case was fought with an energy and vehemence quite unparalleled in our political history, the result was entirely in favor of Ministers. Mr M'Cullooh's majority over Mr Gillies was 179. Mr Jon...

THE HON. GEORGE PATON SMITH, ; ' ? ATTORNEY- GENERAL. *** ? Mr G. Faton Smith is of Scotch descent, tat was born in London. His father's family belong to Berwick-on-Tweed, where they have been located for the last two centuries. He was educated and intended for a profession, but family circumstances prevented the inten tion being carried out. He arrived in Victoria in 1856 ; after a few months spent on the gold fields, joined the staff of The Age, then edited by Mr Ebenezer Syme. 'Mr Smith had previously contributed a number of letters to that journal on. the social condition of the gold-fields' population, which attracted some attention. His long connection with The Age (uninter rupted . except for two ' years when on the Staff of the Argus), led to his being offered the editorship, when he conducted the paper during the period of the O'Shanassy Adminis tration; subsequently, on account of impaired: health, exchanging The Age for The Leader] (a weekly paper), whioh he continued to ...

THE DUKE'S FLAT, NEW BUSH, BULLOOK GREEK.-SEE PAGE 12. THE DUKE'S FLAT NEW RUSH, BULLOCK CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 8 August 1868

THE DUKE'S FLAT, NEW RUSH, BULLOCK CREEK.— see page 12.   THE DUKE'S FLAT NEW RUSH, BULLOCK CREEK. On page 1 we give a sketch of the new   rush at Bullock Creek, which promises to eclipse in richness the older established dig- gings of which it forms part. It is distant from the Leichhardt diggings and township about a mile and a half, and from Sandhurst ten miles. The population at Duke's Flat amounts to about 300, and the place is as yet in that rude and primitive state which heralds the settlement of all new rushes, although ample store and shanty accommodation is already on the ground. The diggings consist of a fine flat, several miles in extent, with the eucalypti family luxuriating in abundance. The sinking is easy, from fifteen to fifty feet deep, and some of the claims are yielding as much as five ounces to the load. Like all other rushes, there are of course many blanks, but sufficient gold has been discovered to hold out highly remunerative prospe...
