At the Theatre Royal "All for Gold" was repeated last evening. There was a good audience, and Mr Dampier's impersonation of the faithful old soldier Dagobert was warmly appreciated. " Catching the Kellys " continues to be the afterpiece.

Chiltern Valley, April 7

Since my report of March 10 have driven 889ft 8in. Of this 820ft 11in consists of drives for blocking, and 62ft 9in main drive down lead, now 967ft 8in below shaft. Have had from six to seven picks blocking. Gold raised for the four weeks, 410oz 2dwt 12gr. All works and machinery in good order


An absurd rumour was current to day that eight police had been shot in an encounter with the Kelly gang
