OUR GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

OUR GOLD FIELDS. (From the Herald , August 2.) Tn order to supply, whenever practicable, some reliable data for conjecture ti3 to the results that may bo anticipated from present operations on our new gold fields, wo have collected a few facts from the various purchasers of gold in the city with reference to the quantity of the precious metal ottered for sale during the Wfpk Tlinsf* ivn lnv lmfWrp rmr venders without nlahnratinn or - omment, further than to say that the gold was in almost every instance disposed of in small quantities, niul what is rather 'significant tho vendors frequently were women. Some returned diggers from Stoney Creek give various accounts of a rather un promising character of the miners' prospects in that quarter , but even these express their intention to return as soon as they have re-equipt'd themselves more efficiently than they had done at their first start. The following particulars have been kindly furnished /by tho undermentioned gold brokers: — Mr. ...

(From the Empire, July 30.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

(From the Empire, J uly 30.) A correspondent writing from Meroo 011 the 22nd instant, informs us that in addition to the 14-lb- nngget found at the Stockyard on the previous Saturday, another large nugget, weigh ing 190 ounces, has since been found. It has been handed over to the Gold Commissioner in the district for safety, and to be for parded to Sydney by the escort leaving on the 2Gth, In consequence of the demand for means of transport-, both by storekeepers and diggers shifting their quarters, freight from Bathurst and Mudgee to Meroo has risen very considerably within the last few weeks. About a rnjntli ago, horse teams j could be obtained at Bathurst at 7s.; but, up to the date of-:- writing, the charge had been increased to 12s. Carriage from - the Meroo to Louisa Cr6ek was from Ss. to 10s., and to Stoney Creek — a distance of only ten miles — 20s. to 25. Provisions, as a natural consequence, were also advancing in price, but no change had taken place in drapery, ironmonger...

Our correspondent states that the reports from Stoney Cre6k: are' of a somewhat diversified character, although, on the whole, very encouraging.

THE RE-ASSEMBLING OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

THE, KE- ASSEMBLING OF PARLIAMENT. The Legislative Assembly meet to-morrow, after an interval of several weeks requested by the Ministry to enable them to prepare their plans and mature the policy by which they will be guided in conducting the government of the colony, bo long as sueh may remain in their hands. Duiing the adjournment! all the memberB of the Ministry have been elected by their former constituents, -awl thus confirmed in those offices to which they wqio called by the Governor General. Throughout the whole of these re-elections, not a syllable was uttered, not a hint dropped tyrthem of their future policy. They deemed it quite sufficient to deal in the usual electioneering generalities. They were very profuse in their praise of the wisdom shown by his Excellency in the opening speech ; but they did not deem it prudent to explain the details of the measures promised in that document. But the impenetrable veil of mystery which has hitherto obscured the intentions of the ...

(From the Empire, July 31.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

(From the Empire, July 31.) Great excitement was produced in this city yesterday by the ex hibition in the shop window of Mr. Samuel bavis, George-street, of 1000 ounces of gold, brought down the previous evening from the Rocky River diggings qy Mr. Solomon Cohen, of the firm of Messrs. D. Cohen aud Co., Spring-street. Tho specimen, which was exposed in the early part of the forenoon, attracted the atten tion of every passer-by, and a large crowd wa3 collected in front of Mr. Davis's premises during a great part of the day, earnestly inspecting1 the glittering treasure. Intelligence of this unex pected proof of the richness of the new gold fields rapidly spread throughout the city, and became the subject of general conver sation. One of its beneficial effects was to awaken a lively iuterest among all classes as to the propriety of measures, on an extensive and liberal scale, being immediately taken for the purpose of encouraging the working of the mines already opened, and the bring...

Sydney Correspondence. SYDNEY, AUGUST 1. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

fijtonj Carmipmiiimr. SYDNEY, AUGUST 1. Ere another week has elapsed, the business of the Legislative Assembly of this colony under the New Constitution will have begun in earnest. The eloquence that during the elections was uttered to the winds, or fell upon rartisan ears, and swelled the discordant chorus of applause and disaprobation, will be succeeded by rounded periods of honorable members ; it will bo more patiently listened to, and its tair weight accorded to it. buch at least should be the modus opcrund\ of a deliberative assembly — such we may hope will be the desirous attitude assumed by the first General Legislative Assembly of New South Wales. Party must be lost sight of, or the public inrerest will suffer; religious rancour must be subdued, or charity will be outraged ; a decent demeanour and gentlemanly language must prevail, or the business ot the Session will not proceed satisfactorily. Not to jmrsue the catalogue of antithesis, there must be a determination on the p...

(From the Maitland Mercury, July 29.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

(From the Maitland Mercury, Jutii 29.) Mr'. Cohen, who arrived in Maitland from the Rocky River by the mail, on Sunday evening last, has brought down' with him 700 ounces of gold ditst, the produce of those diggings. It was currently reported in Maitland that the gold brought down by that gentleman weighed 150 lbs., and that it required two men to carry it from the coach into the store. This was, however, too good to be true, and upon enquiry the 150 lbs. weight of gold turned out to be only 58 lbs. 4 02s. From a conversation held with that gentleman: relative to the state of the Rocky gold field, we gathered that many parties are making fortunes. Mr. Cohen states that it is impossible to tell how much gold is obtained by any one party, as they will not tell you the truth ; the absence of sufficient police protection making them think that discretion is the better part of valour. He says that the weather has impeded the diggers in their operations, but, notwithstanding, those who we...

Mining News. ROCKY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

ftiiuitig Mim, ROCKY RIYER. (from the Armidale Express, July 19.) ; From all the information we have gleaned, we recommend par ties who intend proceeding to the Rocky, to divest themselves of the idea that they can easily drop cn surfacing equal to that of the Red Ilill on Eagle Hawk— wheie above a pound weight of gold to the tub of eight buckets was repeatenly obtained — or the surfacing on some of the Ballaarai ridges, where a man fre quently left places because their average yi^ld did not exceed half-an-ouuco to the pan. They must not be disappointed, either, if they find a thin calico tent rather an imperfect protection against a New England winter. We recommend them to provide themselves with some capital, is the sinking of a sixty or an eighty feet shaft through those hard-comented substances which are always present in hill-sinking, requires alike energy, industry, and capital. If they do so, and have been accustomed to hard work, they will probably succeed ; if they do not, ...

Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

3Hisrcllnncn, ? 44 My Lords' in Australian Transit.— But the Lords are going to do something now that there is peace. They have issued a minute, in which they are good enough to tell us com mercial men that there are three ways of getting to Australia— via the Cape, via Suez, via Panama ; and with great modesty declining to prouounce any opinion of their own as to which is best. I hey ask the six Australian colonies to consider and .agree which route shall be adopted. They invite steamship companies to tender for all the routes. This is no doubt believed to be very energetic ; but all the while that the six colonies are wrangling— as they are sure to do, I shall still have to go by the clippers,- for it will be at least a year before anything can be settled. Our firm says, 'Put on the Point de Galle boats again.' But the Lords of the Treasury are not going to prejudge the question iu that way. Other firms say that if the official bydrographer (a person who would rather puzzle you in...

Cities unit iMriiei FLORENCE O'BRIEN* AN 1KISII TALE. Continued from our Last, '* A nd a mighty change had comc over that remote town. 'The , airrny ' had arrived ; the barracks were built ; ships of war were frequent in the bay; and the streets were daily paraded by those lounging heroes who had wrought an extraordinary revolution in all things, but especially in manners and fashions. The brilliant era had arrived, when an expensive foreign and civil war produced in certain quarters, the excitement of that wastful fever which was named national prosperity. We have already noticed a particular winter, in which the distressed state- of the country had driven many of the higher orders of the provincial gentry into the town, for seeurity against their poorer neighbours ; or, in case of tlio worst extremity, for protection from English troops against Irish peasants. This was considered the gayest season that ever had been known in Portmullina. Yet there were many of the older stationary...

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

AGRICULTURAL ? ( From the Argus, July 17.) Having recently referred to the importance wi.th 'which the subject o'? agricultural education is regarded in Canada, we now supply the following passage from the address of the president of the Canadian Agricultural Society at their anniversary meet ing;— « A nnrfiin.TTTR Aij Education.— r A man is not deemed .competent to make a coat or a shoe who has not served an apprenticeship of several years. Yet, men are expected to manage farms who are mere tyros in experience, and in groat measure ignorant of the science of agriculture. If the next generation of farmers could be well educated in their profession, it is almost impossible to esti mate the vast change which ; would take place iu the world's pro gress. What is urged, is education, in the true and proper sense of the term, namely the thorough training of the mind with a special reference to the practice of agriculture. It includes the theorv aud practice of the profession, neither sepa...
