Geelong Advertiser (Newspaper) - September 1, 1851, Geelong, Victoria National Library of Australia ? .1iation ftro3 the mines. Rom our special correspondent ? left Sydney about ten weeks the coach to a thirst was crowded Atye and the seats bespoke for to while in the coach from Bathurst might most get a seat for nothing. M return to Sydney five weeks after the Case was totally reversed the h Down was crowded and that from Sdney we met with one miserable Pas like the last Rose of summer in alone. Three weeks after that it to Titterton s to take my seat for thur but the Hundred weight of Gold been found in the mean time and e seats were Riz again bespoke for the a owing fortnight. I had to Content if with the third seat in a Spring in which i made Tho most miserable by that Ever it has been try Fate to Cunter cooped up for six Days from ring till night in such icon As subjects were carried by the yet zionists in Days of Yore with an 5ional struggle up Hill through mud and rain by Way of variety. They i the Way to Bathurst a Road but it is perfect Misnomer and a libel upon is in general it is a Hundred Miles sloughs of despond a succession of Long sinks of liquid mud from a foot eighteen inches in depth with holes of known depth every few Yards hid Der a smooth liquid surface. If go moment had any bowels of compassion to would Beacon these off but no on you go with a Jerk that makes the Rte Bra Back rattle like the Tail a Rattlesnake and As it Sto walk alongside the Road from the of dead Timber there is resource but to Grin up into the e with paid and indignation if there any one to curse it would be some oltion but who is responsible for the a nobody he is. A regular mrs. S. His visible representatives in shape of a Man every ten mile putting t relay into the deepest ruts we passed the indignation too deep for utterance a were adding insult. To injury and for the toll keeper his depravity in a i Point of View is perfectly hopeless in i asked him How be had the ass a to look a horse in the face and ask toll on such a Road he said he rather is it than otherwise the d the More drays to carry the supplies the mines the More tolls to him and a the horses. In fact the journey in Ter is a Hundred Miles of torture Ion no Man in his senses would endure p anything less than the Prospect of a did weight. Of Gold. It is Likely Ever to be a very. Serious matter if wet weather continues Long for there not then 2gth jul month s sup of flour in the District and no Possi to of procuring Road is Petely Cut up in every Inch f the auth Between the Trees on.

It is Iea Ible to do anything this Winter Pecan hardly blame government for having a suitable Road ready for the t by increased traffic arising from diggings but it is hoped that ing the summer an Effort will be made prepare for the next Winter the first the Gold Revenue could not be put to i tier purpose As i think the colonial rotary will say if the wet continues he comes up which it is to be hoped the Good diggers that it will. Passed a great Many men and some in on their Way up mostly Fronia port lip and Adelaide. " nearly Al had Edin parties of for Atzen to Twenty chartered a Dray to carry. Thorney Beds and provisions with which appeared Well provided. All who carrying their swag had As much they could stagger under and none without blankets As Wai the Case hundreds Sydney men.

Tae new diggings As in California but never such a concentration of people As was at Ophir when the Only Gold Field on the Point opposite our Camp there were at one time forty two fires now there Are Only two. Such is life at the diggings. Munin intelligence. Bathurst free press the latest intelligence from the Turon does no vary very materially from that Given in our last. Constant arrivals Are taking. Place from every Point com pass and Large numbers were pouring in from port Phillip. A respectable Digger just returned informs us that seventy five victorians reached there on sunday in one body and that Many of them appeared wearied and disappointed. A Large body had also come upon the diggings by the the River. Many of them he says had provided themselves with quicksilver machines. The Oakey Creek for some time one favorite spots is not according to the representation is of several lately from that locality nearly so prolific in Golleas hitherto and Many Conse Quence leaving it. The sums realized in some instances when the diggings on this Creek were first discovered arc almost in credible but so far As we have ascertained the ground runs out much More quickly on the tributary creeks to Ron than on the Turon itself. An opinion begins to prevail that Gold will not continue to be found in its present abundance and with present Means for. Any considerable time As Many favorite spots Are Al ready exhausted. In course of conversation with an acquaintance a few Days ago who had been considerably Lucky we Learned that half his time six week had been spent prospecting that he had worked out fou different holes which at. The commencement and for several Days afterwards varying from five to eight had been very remunerative and that he had opened three spots of excellent Promise and obtained next to nothing. When a very Large addition to the present body of miners takes place it appears not improbable that Suc Cess will be much Les general that at present. From recent enquiries the quicksilver machines do not appear to answer the sex entertained by whether from any fault in their construction or on account of ignorance As to their proper ise we have had no Opportunity of ascertain ing but have no doubt Liat the latter is one principal , As we have heard of. Several uninitiated parties losing Large quantities of. Quick their Industrial operations and As there appears to have been cases. In which they have succeed it is probable that for. The. Present they will fall into disuse. Gambling continues on. The increase and Large sums Are won and lost on the Sabbath Day by cards and Dice. We Are glad however to the authorities Are lie stirring themselves with the object of checking this abominable Nui Sance. On monday night two gamblers were brought into town in Handcuffs who had been.,apprehended at the Golden Point on sunday whilst employed their favorite pastime by or. Assistant com missioner King. They were accompanied by a couple of pugilist also in Handcuffs who had been amusing themselves on the Sabbeth Day somewhere in the neighbourhood of Oakey Creek by knocking each other to �10 a Side. They were taken before the Bench. Yesterday for a hearing but remanded until the necessary evidence could be produced. Very Friend of peace and order would rejoice to learn that vigorous Steps had been taken for the suppression of such irregularities and we feel sure that government would secure their Good Opi Nion Bys adopting prompt measures. At once. Another. Rush. ,from., the Metropolis appears.,to be setting in. A gentleman just returned from the Mudgee informs us that the Road is lined with men women and -teams., Many of them As before Are indifferently equipped and Somo without any provision whatever. With. The return Spring season whether prepared. Or. Unprepared we expect a wholesale migration from the sur rounding country and a. Return scenes of Ophir. With. The Brilliant allurements of. A Gold Field before their eyes the lessons of experience appear to be utterly valueless. One favourable change in the social condition Turon is to be witnessed in the. Inter mixture of females which is Gra dually taking place. Many married men have taken their wives and families with them and the. Disposition to promote their Domestic Comfort is fast on the in crease amongst the miners so that in a Short period. The female portion population May be expected to augment materially. We believe there Are Many parties entirely made up of a Man his wife,.and one or two of . Large arrivals of thie precious Metal Continuo to take place. Since our last Mir. Austin s receipts of Gold Are not less than from �2000 to �2500 in value. Amongst the rest is a splendid Lump of 5gozs. 7 dts.

Other parties have bought Small amounts making in All a considerable total. Progress of colonial Reform in Canada. A behave some Hope now that even the colonial office is willing to profit from experience. The following extract is from the times Leader 14th april it appears from despatches Laid on the table House of commons on the 8th of this month april that a most momentous change has just been effected in the relation Between this country and the Colony of Canada. The Canadian legislature is dissatisfied with the salaries of its officials which it considers to be higher than those paid in the Neighbour ing states american Union. These salaries were settled originally by the act of parliament incorporating upper and lower Canada into one province. The colonists becoming dissatisfied with the amount an act Imperial Parlia ment was obtained enabling them to re peal these salaries and make other pro vision in that behalf. This right they again exercise and Are again dissatisfied with the amount salaries. They apply to lord Grey to enable Call these Grants and to fix salaries at a lower scale. To this by a despatch dated 14th March 1851, lord Grey re plies that the reduction of salaries the government after mature consideration is willing to place. The civil disposal Canadian parliament that the salary governor is out Imperial Treasury and that by Way of equivalent for these concessions since Canada now possesses in the most ample and Complete manner is possible she should enjoy it the advantage of self government in All that relates to her internal affairs the troops maintained in Canada should be confined to the Garrison of two or three posts of importance probably Only Quebec and Kingston. Lord. Grey. Further states that is Only due to of England that they should be relieved from the charge of protecting a Colony Able to protect it self and that in. The meantime he is Only reverting to the former colonial policy of and that this policy would have been introduced at an earlier period but for Theo depression which the change from free Trade brought upon Canadian interests. In conclusion lord Grey emphatically remarks that must not be for a moment supposed that these measures Are contemplated under any idea that the connexion Bette n the Mother country and the Colony could be dissolved without great injury to both or that there is Ansy probability it will be he then proceeds to justify the measures because calculated to satisfy the colonists and con sequently attach them to the British con Nexion. From other sources we learn that after five years hesitancy the colonial of fice has determined to guarantee a loan of �6,000,000, to be borrowed by. The British american colonies for the Pur pose of constructing a railway through Nova Scotia. New Brunswick and Ca Nada. guarantee enables the colonies to borrow in the Money Market on easier terms. Verily. Lord. Grey whatever his sin against aus Ira Lia has gained Golden opinions in Bri Tish America. Extracts. The late Dir. Dowton,.thiie co me. Dian. This inimitable actor has at length " shuffled. Off this mortal the following Brief Elnoir of his Thea to ical career May not be uninteresting to our readers. Dir. Dowton who undoubtedly in som characters was without a rival was born at Exeter in 1763?consequently lie was in his 88th year. At the ago. Of 15 he was articled to an architect but having performed Carlos in the revenge at a private theatre with Good Success Hoe was induced to relinquish building substantial castles to erect cer. Tain ones. In air and joined a strolling company at Ashburton. He was sub so fluently engaged by Mir. Hughes manager Plymouth theatre. " d. G.,". The critic of Cumberland s edition of plays states that Dowton after having made the ubit unitarian s grand tour returned to Exeter and performed Macbeth Romeo and the usual round of first rate tragic characters for like some of our capital comedians addresses were paid to Mel ppm Etc. It is but just to state that in these representations lie evinced much Good sense and feeling and if he Rose not to pre Eminence he descended not to mediocrity. Sheva in Cumberland s co Medy jew had Long been a Favourite part of. Bannister a Elliston had also marked it for his r. Dowton stepped into the Field and. Without taking the Laurel from either honour ably shared it with. Both. His first appearance at Drury Lane was on the 10th of october 1796, in this difficult character. I he was hailed As a genuine actor and crowned with applause. Ii 1805 he was engaged at the Haymarket theatre and on Tho 15th of August in that year he revived for his Benefit the warm weather. Tragedy tailors which produced that memorable fracas Between the " Dungs and the " flints and ended in the committal of three dozen and Odd and one rebellious Carver and Gilder to the watch House. The Prin Cipal roles in the burlesque were sustained by Dowton Mathews listen and mrs. Gibbs As Francisco Abramides Zachariades and tit Tilinda. The great Success of Tom thumb in which or. Dowton played King Arthur very humorously stimulated him to this attempt. His two principal Shak Perian characters were sir John falstaff and do Berry. As or. Cantwell in the hypocrite he was inimitable. His other Best parts were sir Aunthony absolute and major Stur Goon. With the proceeds of his Farewell Benefit at her majesty s theatre a few years since an annuity was purchased on which he lived to a Fine Green old age Happy in the bosom.

Sir we the undersigned land hold ers and re dents within the county of Grant request that you will allow us to nominate you As a candidate at the ensuing election of a member to represent our county in the legislative coun cil feeling assured that your Best efforts will be at All times exerted for the general welfare Colony and that you will not in any Way sup Ort inv d Ous distinctions or encourage class legislation. We have the Honor to be sir your most obedient servants Here follows 75 signatures. C gentlemen although i have not hitherto taken any Public part in the discussions of political questions and am aware that there Are Many among you better qualified than myself to undertake the Honor of representing the county of Grant in the legislative Council of Victoria i have yet Little hesitation in coming Forward to comply with your request As i find it proceed ing from so Many respectable and influential elect s county. Not having the advantage of being personally known to the majority electors i feel it due to them that i should devote a few words to the eix pres Sion of my opinions on some sub acts which will employ the attention of their representative. Among the most important of these and one which claims immediate con Sidera Ion is the establishment of a More comprehensive system of education. This i Ain of opinion should be organised by government on a most Liberal scale and in such a. Manner that no denomination should have cause to complain of a want of equal Justice. The interests landholders and squatters which Are generally considered conflicting appear to me to be closely United although i hold that part present arrangements might be advantageously altered. I allude More particularly to the enactment under which the funds for immigration purposes Are provided almost entirely by the Pur chasers of land causing thereby an unequal distribution Burden. I object to the voluntary system of religion and am of opinion that ample assistance should be afforded by govern ment to each denomination proportion ate to the number of its members. To vote by ballot i also strongly object As tending to a Lish the influence of shame and honour and certain through the abuse of a High privilege to Lead to confusion and anarchy. To transportation to this or any neighbouring colonies. I am and always will be most strenuously opposed. Having thus briefly expressed my views of some prominent questions of a general nature that have occurred to me i will add that i consider it the duty of your representative to see that a fair share Public in ies be appropriated to the wants and Imp movement county and that he should at All times be ready to co operate with the members for the town of Geelong in advancing the Inte rests common to both. I will conclude with the remark that attached to no party and interested Only for the Well being and Good government Colony i Trust in the event of my being elected your representative to be enabled to retain your Confidence by not in any Way supporting invidious distinctions or advocating class legis Tio u.

All orders executed with despatch. ? brass Iron and 1vood turning. To thie electors of tile Toiven of Geelong. Gentlemen beg leave most respectfully to offer myself As a candidate to represent your interests in our first legislative Council which will certainly be the most important to the future welfare Colony. I am induced to do so by a sense of duty is a citizen believing that the people have not in the present state aus trial an colonies Bill thir fair share of representation and that it will require men to represent you who to obtain the desired Reform Are actuated As i profess to be by a sincere desire to have Good Laws and equal rights for All my fellow subjects. After giving this my opinion on the constitutional act i will at once state my views on other important Points of legislation and first on the claims corporation of Geelong on the Gene ral Revenue Colony when Geelong obtained an act constituting the representatives of its burgesses a corporate body the government gave us the Power to tax ourselves but they gave its nothing else. The present state approaches to the town and our streets show How the want of government Aid is required for the assess ment on the rate payers is not sufficient to put the roads in a it oper state although the rate May be to the utmost the Law Al lows. I would therefore claim from the government the wharfage dues and a por Tion product Sale of Crown lands within the corporation boundaries. Such claims and others that would appear right ought to be embodied in a new a t of incorporation. Tihe removal bar should also be defrayed out general Revenue inasmuch As such improvement to our Harbour will be Benefi Cial to the District As Well As the town and therefore will enhance the value Crown lands. I am of opinion that sales of Public lands should be held in the locality where the lands Are situated this i think cannot be disputed from the expense and inconvenience of going to the capital where the intending Purcha or must enter into Competition with those who buy for speculative purposes. On the squatting question i am quite decided let the squatters enjoy the lands they hold As Long As they Are not required by purchasers but the preemptive claim i cannot admit As were it allowed one por Tion people would be wronged by being deprived of their right to Purchase Public property. Regarding the Sale and Transfer of land think i have Given cause in my endeavours for Law Reform to believe me sincere in desiring to have the present oppressive and complicated system simplified and economise. I am favourable to the voluntary Prin Ciple in religion. And to the National system of education but i would not disturb existing establishments As government Aid was Given without partial Ity before we were a Colony. In the event of my election i will Al ways keep in View immigration from the United Kingdon in due proportion to the population of its several parts be Lieving that it will be equally beneficial to the c Dony and the Mother cont itry and i will take care that the due amount of funds for this purpose shall be properly expended. If the British government attempt transportation to our Colony i will take All available Means to repel it i am in favor of vote by ballot As i am persuaded it would tend to purity of election. I would advocate the abrogation of All inter colonial duties. I believe i have referred to the leading Points which affect your interests. The opinions i have profess d i will maintain. It is for you electors to be Lieve so or not by. In closing my address to you. I beg leave to say that the government has no temptations for me honorary or pecuniary. Should 1 been trusted by my fellow townsmen in representing their rights and liberties which is the highest honour that can be Confer red i shall feel the full we get oblige Tion of discharging my duties As your representative i cat Tot possibly wait on All the electors but where i cannot i Hope that you will excuse me. Regard ing any political sentiments which i May have omitted i will be ready to explain at the hustings. I am gentlemen your obedient servant Robert Robinson apartments.
