MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 14th, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 18 December 1855

MELBOURNE. (FROJt OUIl OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 14th, 1055. I The question of responsible government, by far the most important which, (it the present moment, can arrest the attention of the colonists, lias received a most useful and opportune elucidation in the neighboring colony of New South Wales, in the report of a select committee, appointed to ex amine into tho mode of administering the Govern ment of that colony, under the New Constitution, to be established there. It is a most able docu ment, which curries on the face of it, evidence of being the product of men well acquainted with the principles and action of responsible govern ment. The appropriation of offices to the officials, who are to be considered the responsible ministers, is most judicious; with regard to whom, an arrangoment is suggested, by which the new system of Government can, with complete efficiency, be brought into practical operation. The responsible ministers proposed are — the Chief Secretary, (Premi...

TESTIMONIAL TO MR. DENOVAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 18 December 1855

TESTIMONIAL TO MR. DENOVAN. It will;-be observed. by an advertisement in another column that a meeting of the friends of Mi\ Donovan is convened this evening at Burall's Assembly Rooms, for the purpose of taking into consideration the most appropriate means of giving that gentleman, on the eve of his departure from the district, some testimonial of their respect, and appreciation of his services in the causc of the diggers. Having been on more than one occasion opponents of Mr. Denovan, and veiy often fellow workers in the same cause with himself, we feel that we can review his claims to public considera tion with at least impartiality. . Mr. Donovan is about to proceed to Ballaarat, where liis services have been engaged on the local press of that rapidly-advancing district. For the last two years and a half he has been more or less concerned in public movements on this goldfield,— sometimes, as we believe, 011 the wrong side, but nearly always 011 the right; and 011 all occasions o...

THE BERDAN MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 18 December 1855

THE BERDAN MACHINE, As all particulars in connection with the work ins °f the miartz crushing machines on this gold field are or interest, we feel called upon to notice some alterations and improvements which have been made by Mr. Elisor in his Berdan Machine, which are likely to obviate some of the objections to this description of quartz crushing machinery. Owners of Berdan Machines in other localities will profit by adopting the hints in these improve ments, which are calculated to render the action more safe and raoro eflcctive, and to reduce the expenses greatly. The weight, wear, and concussion of the two balls in Bcrdan's quartz crushing machine have been proved to render it, with the greatest care, ineflicient after little use, and liable to break the basin at any moment. The credit is due to Mr. Thomas Macknoy for liaving designed an improve ment upon Berdan's patent, by which the machine works "better, and with far less wear. Tlio use of the small ball was for the purpose ...

RACE COURSE AT EPSOM. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 18 December 1855

RACE COURSE AT EPSOM. It will bo remembered that a few weeks since n manorial was forwarded to his Excellency the Governor, with reference to the fencing in of the racc course, at Epsom, pnying that this ground might be thrown open to the diggers. The follow ing reply has been received. It will be observed that the mutter hits been referred to the Trustees for their decision, and that the Government are prepared in the event of the present race course being thrown open to the diggers, to grant another piece of ground for a course. The Government have thus done their duty as far as they are warranted, and have shown an evident desire to meet the wishes of the diggers. It now remains for the gentlemen whose names appear in the reply, as trustees of the ground, to do their duty, and to consult the interest of the diggers, and through them, of the public, by throwing open the ground for mining purposes. There is only one of the six absent, viz.,Dr.Tierney. The other Jive are all gentlem...

COURT OF PETTY SESSIONS. Saturday, 15th December, 1855. (Before the Stipendiary Magistrate.) Assault.—Alexander Conklin and Thomas O'Connor,, two respectable-looking young men, appeared on bail to answer a charge of violently assaulting John Smith, alias Brummy, at the Freemasons' Hotel, on Wednesday last.   —Mr. Lysaght appeared for the defence.—Smith stated that, on the day in question, Conklin and O'Connor had come in, and the former offered to shake hands, when he said,'Why should I shake hands with a scamp?' De- fendant asked what was the matter, and he (Smith) re- plied, 'You decoyed my wife away, and took her from   her home.' He then left. In a long statement he made out that on returning he was about to shut the door, when he saw defendants and several others at the door. Conklin asked him to drink, which he refused, saying "he wished nothing to say to him or a mean vagabond like him." Conklin then struck at him, but did not hit him. He (Smith) the...

THE DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 18 December 1855

THE DIGGINGS. The heavy rains for the last few days have sup plied all the gullies with water, find the puddling machines will be in full work again. The chief item of interest in connection with the diggings is the progress of the Epsom rush, which is steadily advancing, and apparently growing. richer than ever. In quartz-mining operations are rather dull, and the quartz'machines are not kept in constant em» ployment. At Mr. Kelly's quartz-crushing machine ope- rations are being carried on very satisfactorily. The quartz is crushed without being calcined, which saves considerable expense, but we do not know whether the result is more satisfactory. The tailings are very fine, and the action of the mer- cury is so complete that one of the owners of quartz crushed at the mill failed to detect anp par- ticles of gold in the tailings with the aid of a pow- erful microscope. Some very rich quartz, from the claim of Mr. Gibb and partners, has been crushed here recently. Mr. Young's quartz...

. INSURRECTION IN BENGAL. There Is unusual news from India, viz., particulars of the insurrection of the Satvtals, a people occupying the valleys of the linjmnhal Ilills, about two hundred miles from Calcutta, and hitherto peaceful cultivators of the soil. The accounLs received by this mail do no more than inform us that the Santals are in rebellion; pro voked thereto, it is said, either by the harshness of the tax collectors, or by some injury offered to a " Santal lady," or by fanaticism. Be that ns it may, they have murdered two European ladies and several of the native police. < By the latest accounts, one or two stations on the line of railways where the engineers had tried to make a stand, had been forced; and the few Europeans on the line had assembled at Kudunsha, deep amongst the hills. Troops should be sent from Barrackpore, by rail, to Burdwan, whenee two days' foiced marching would enable them to reach any point of the Beerbhoom district, which may be threaten...

MINIifQ INTELLIGENCE. On Tuesday wo were shewn some magnificent samples of amalgamated gold, produced at Mr. Young's crushing machine, from some quartz brought from the Coliban. The richness of some ot this quartz is extraordinary, and challenges competition with the richest reefs on Bendigo. Out of two tons of quartz from the claim of Mr. Alexander and iv|ates, there was produced the very large amount of lol ounces ]2J dwts.; and from two tons out of the claim of Mr. G. E. Thomson, 78 ounces: the forn)er thus averaging nearly 76 ounces per tan, anil the latter 39. Mr. Thomson is well known on Bendigo a? the gentleman who took a leading part in the agitation of 1853, and his old friends will be glad to hear that he lias " dropped on it rjglit smart,"—110 doubt finding quartz mining a far more profitable and satisfactory pursuit than political agitation. This quartz reef on the Coliban is worthy of special notice, for very little is known concerning it. It is situated on the Kqngaroo...
