THE STONEY CHEEK DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 July 1856

THE STONEY CREEK DIGGINGS. (From the Jiaihurst Free Tress, July 19.) From Mr. Gray, of Kelso, who has recently visited the Sfconcy Creek Diggings for the purpose of gathering- information, we learn the following particulars : — There can be no question, he says, but a very considerable number are doing uncommonly well, and that & few have already realized small fortunes, and that a still larger number are making good wages, whilst in his opinion fully one-fourfch are running about from place to place, doing nothing. Tho difficulty of pro curing correct information, even on the ground, is very great, and for obvious reasons. There is no protection on the place, save the occasional appearance of a policeman, which, except that it is a proof that there are such animals as policemen in the Western District, is of the least possible service to the diggers. Secresy is therefore the only means of protection, and parties who are doing1 well, or turning up the yellow metal by the pou...

? , ittgfefj fMrtak GRAND NAVAL REVIEW AT SPITHEAD. (From the European Times. ) The naval review took place at Portsmouth on the 23rd April, in the presence of 100,000 spectators. It is described as the greatest and most imposing display of the naval power of Great Britain that was ever seen on the beautiful waters of the Solent. A nobler spectaole never stirred the hearts or excited the feelings of a great nation. Under the serenest of skies, and on the cil.mest of seaa, the most magnificent navy which the world has ever seen, exhibited the wonders of the mighty prowess with the unerring precision or a macnine complete in uesign ami periect in execution, and with the easy grace of an irresistible strength. Covering a space of between ten and twelve miles of the waters bet ween° Portsmouth and Spithead, there were assembled no less than twenty-six screw line-of-battle ships ; nearly forty frigates, paddle and screw ; two mortar batteries ; four wrought-iron floating batteries; fifty...

(To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 July 1856

: (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) Sir, — I beg to call your attention, and that of the public, to the conduct of the captain of the Illawarra on Thursday last. ? On his entering Wollongong harbour, he deliberately proceeded to moor his vessel in such a way to the slip at the basin, as to preclude thn possibility of the Kiama steamer getting near it, or, in fact, into the harbour at all ; bo that the latter vessel had to land passengers and cargo in her small boats, and embark pas sengers, stock, and cargo, in like manner : thus causing much ?delay and great inconvenience. May I ask, whether the harbour is the exclusive property of the owners of the Illawarra ? — or whether their right only extends to landing cargo and hauling off immediately, to allow other vessels to do the like? If these gentlemen think they will gain public favour for their vessel by proceedings like that I have described, they are simply mistaken. The public will not tolerate monopoly, nor permit the „...

The delicate ner vousness at a newspaper paragraph only proves, however, the necessity of fresh enterprise.
