Gold Discovered in Mt. Alexander

26-03-2012 | Source | Central Point
On 8th September, 1851 the Argus published this piece;
Dear Sir,
I wish to publish these few lines in your valuable paper that the public may know that there is gold found in these ranges about four miles from Dr Barker's home station, and about a mile from the Melbourne road, at the Southernmost point of Mount Alexander"

On 8th September, 1851 the Argus published this piece;
Dear Sir,
I wish to publish these few lines in your valuable paper that the public may know that there is gold found in these ranges about four miles from Dr Barker's home station, and about a mile from the Melbourne road, at the Southernmost point of Mount Alexander, where three men and myself are working.
I do this to prevent parties getting us into trouble, as we have been threatened to have the constables fetched, for being on the ground. If you will have the kindness to insert this in your paper that we are prepared to pay anything that is just, when the commissioner comes.
In the name of the party,
John Worley
Mount Alexander Ranges, September 1, 1851"
