NEW GOLD FIELD. - Mr. G. H. Wathe_ has returned from a tour to the northward of Bunin-
yong, between the Avoca and Mount Alexander. In almost every part of the country there are rumours (many of them no doubt unfounded) of the discovery of gold. There is only one spot, besides the diggings already known and de- scribed, at which men are actually employed in mining; that spot is in the vicinity of Mount Alexander, in a secluded valley about four and a half miles south-west of the Porcupine Inn, and only one mile west of the road from Melbourne to Swan Hill. The gold is found in quartz veins traversing primary clay and mica slate. These strata are nearly vertical, and running north and south. The quartz is more rotten, and there- fore more easily worked than at Clunes, and is at least as rich, probably will prove richer. The party of miners had only worked a few days.
The range in which gold is found is a prolonga- tion of that of which Buninyong forms a part - Geelong Advertiser.
THE BALLARAT GOLD FIELD. - We learn from a credible source, that one hundred ounces of gold were brought into Geelong on Wednesday last, by a man, who stated that it had been gathered by him and two others, in three weeks. All parties, it appears, are getting abundance of gold. Between four and five hundred men of the labouring class have left Geelong within the last week for the diggings, and the emigration still continues to such an extent, as to threaten the depopulation of the town. Drays are seen on all sides ready laden, all surmounted with the significant cradle. The diggings are repre- sented to be about fifty-four miles from Geelong, in ranges that are spurs from Mount Alexander. Gold has also been found in small quantities within seven miles of Geelong. Mr. Commis- sioner Armstrong started for the diggings in the beginning of the present week.
