BALLAARAT. From the Ballaarat Times. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 15 December 1855

ballaarat. Front the Balluarat Times. Maofie Gully.—-This liue nt present has declined in . population in consequence of tlie fresh rushes to JBun inyong and Steiglitz. Great numbers have left for the last named places during the Inst week. A few of the old diggers persevere in working the old ground, which, in some places, is paying well. The Frenchman's con tinues to attract the miners' attention, and it ia still a matter of doubt whether the liue will continuo its course through the . hill, or lend off in the direction of While Horse Gully. One or two holes only are bottomed on the opposite side of the Creek from Ballaarat, which are paying the lucky owners remarkably well. I know an instance of a half share being sold on Tuesday last for £75 cash, the hole beiug only forty feet down, and the purchaser to work the claim. The gutter is widening considerably as it faces the hill, neither is it decreasing in richness. Cobbler's Gully has but few workers, the generality of the claims...

THE SIXPENNY REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 15 December 1855

THE SIXPENNY REVOLUTION. In another column of to-day's issue appears a letter from Mr, Heckscher, with reference to the reduction which he lias recently made in the re tail prices of liquors. The letter is temperately and sensibly written, and the reasons for the step he has taken seem cogent enough, so far as he i§ per sonally concerned, though they may not be as forcible in the case of other publicans, ' ' Many pf the considerations, such as the check upon sly-grog selling; and the withdrawal of such strong induce ments to set up public-houses, as now exist, arc feally worthy °f attention. The gist of Mr. Hcck scher's letter is however this, —" I can afford to make a reduction from a shilling to sixpence, and I believe it will anstycr my purpose." In the increased sale, diminution of house expense;*, and lessening of competition, Mr. Heckscher finds the reasons for the course he lias adopted. Now if this is bona fide the case, other publicans need not complain. Other things being ...

If any one will take the trouble to look into schedule IT of the New Constitution Act, in which the boundaries of the electoral districts for the Le gislative Council are defined, lie will find the fol lowing description of the Sandhurst electoral district:— 18.

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 12th, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 15 December 1855

MELBOURNE. (from our own correspondent.) December 12th, 1855, * On Monday last the Governor and members of the Executive Council took the oaths prescribed' under tlje new commission. The ceremony was gone through at the Government Offices, with the usual formalities. The military attended, who fired oft' the necessary quantity oi powder in cele bration of the event. Nothing was said upon the occasion, and perhaps in this case " the lcitst said the easiest mended." The action for libel brought by Mr. Wright, late Gold Commissioner, against Mr. O'Shanassy for expressions used by him in a letter addressed to Mr. Fyke, gn the sixth August, in wliicli occurred the phrase, f the habitual insolence of a corrupt official," which theplaintilFapplied to himself, has been decided in the Supreme Court, the jury giving a verdict 'of a farthing damages to the late commissioner.

MINING INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR MINING REPORTER.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 15 December 1855

MINING INTELLIGENCE. fFROJt OUR MINING REPORTER.) A great number are now leaving the Myers' Flftt rush, owing entirely to the want of water. In many pf the gullies alluvial mining is entirely suspended, and many are coming to the summer workings, or seeking employment for the interven ing months. On the Bendigo Flats, the Back Creek, and the Spring gullies, we notice more miners at work, although even in these places the puddling machines are one by one ceasing their labors. The rush in the neighborhood of the New Zealand is not so well spoken of as at first. The ground is-about here patchy; at the same time many believe that the best run is yet to be found, and that it will be traced down Dead Ilorse Flat to its junction with the Myers' l-'lat rush. (Should this be the case, it will add mate rially to the importance of this improving dis trict. From the "VVhipstick we hear that very little is doing. A few of the old pioneers still remain there, and are getting a living, still enter...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor of the Bendigo Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 18 December 1855

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor of the Ucndbto Advertiser.} Sir,—Do you think it just that the publicans should be denounced from the pulpit as men who not only ewe tho menus of encouraging vice, but who look smilingly on while publio decency is outraged ? Last Sunday I attended the English Church, and I heard the Rev. Mr. Brennnn censuro the publicans of this district in bo marked a manner, that for n short time thoy seemed to me to be some of the most abandoned people in cxis tence. The reverend gentleman was so afl'ected by his own homily that ho shed tears,—which I understand is a very common thing with him. Now I do 110S question his sincerity fora moment, hut X think it would be as well to spare the feelings of his audience by such a lachrymose exhibition. One is forcibly reminded of Job Trotter in Pickwick, "Young Waterworks" as Smm AVcller styled him. You lmve been giving a rap to the publicans yourself Mr. Advertiser lately, but do you think that such an onslaught a...

THE BENDI60 ADVERTISER, PROGRESSIONi OUR RIGHTS, AND OUR RESOURCES. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1055. THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR QUARTZ RESOURCES. We reccive innumerable complaints from per sons engaged in quartz-mining operations, that the regulations at present in force, or rather tho doubt and uncertainty which prevail respecting what are really the regulations- interfere most seriously with the proper development of the quartz re sources of the district. It is contended that Messrs. Donovan and Co., in their well-intentioned opposition to monopoly, and their assertion of the rights of individual industry, have unnecessarily trammelled capital, and that the consequences are now reverting on the heads of the individual miners. On all sides we hear of operations in quartZTirrining being suspended, because the miner has not enough money to prosecuto the work ; and at the same time we hear that men with capital will not hazard any speculation in this branch of mining industry, either to work t...
