The.partial obliteration of the name of Ben digo from the map of Victoria, and the sub

stitution of the name of Sandhurst for the celebrated Bendigo of former days have given rise to oft repeated expressions of re gret. The visitor to our forest city is sur prised beyond measure when informed that this is the Bendigo he has heard and read about in years gone by. Who has not heard of Bendigo? And how few visitors to our     colony know that the famous gold-producing district of that name exists under the newer, inappropriate and less euphonious name of Sandhurst. We believe that in this cir   cumstance may be discovered the common practice of visitors to Victoria to see Mel bourne and Ballarat and then pass on ob livious of the fact that Bendigo still exists, under a disguise. Ballarat and Bendigo   were known throughout the world in the   1 early fifties, and the same reason which

attracts the tourist to Ballarat would draw him to Bendigo if he knew that such was the locality described on the map, in the railway guides, in the newspapers, everywhere and by everybody aa Sandhurst. When gold was discovered in Victoria there were but

two great fields which became famous j throughout the world by the extreme richness of their yields of precious metal. Ballarat with its deep leads overlaid with basalt in the west, and Bendigo with itu shallow alluvial workings and rich reefs in the north, At Ballarat " jewellers' shops " dazzled the imagination with their wealth of gold, wl il i

the wildest dreams of avarice could be rea lised on Bendigo by finding monster nuggets, washing pound weights of gold to the tub of dirt, and even shaking thoyellowspecksfrom the grass roots. No wonder when the great news was known, thousands of anergetic workers, the bone and sinew of the British Islea braved tlio dangers of sixteen thousand miles of ocean to get to the new Eldorado. The first questions on their lips on touching the golden shores of Viotoria were, "Which is the road to Bendigo," or "Is this the way to Ballarat?" How hopefully and courageously they shoul

dered their swags and tramped the hundred ! miles to either place. No intervening or ; imagined danger daunted them, the road j might be unknown, over miles of dreary | plain or through miles of dark forest. ; Black Douglass and his bushranging gang, 1 venomous snakes or roaring bush fires might erosa their path, but onward they pressed. On arriving at their destination no time was lost:—to-night they pitched their tent, and to-morrow they entered eagerly into the race for rfches, and plied the pick and shovel with a wilj before the sun had risen in

the paie and dewy oust uii long after it had sunk in the glowing west. Ballarat picueers and old Bendigonians alone can: realise the wonderful energy and vitality displayed. They wore in it in those brave days of old, and maintained thoir vigor when damper and mutton at one meal was

varied with mutton and damper at another. I "Well can they lemember when gold was J gathered in heaps from the earth, escorted under armed guard to the metropolis and shipped off in great boxes to the old world. These were the days when the names Ben digo and Ballarat were known in the fur

thest corners of the earth. • i

With what fondness the old names are regarded. Under their inspiration wliat marvellous work has been effected; they ard names to conjurewith; Bendigo! Simply viewed as a combination of letters, they are singularly free from commonplace. In size they please the eye and meet the artistic requirements that a name in its length should be in koeping with the greatness it represents. Their soft euphony is extremely pleasing to the ear, and well atted for melodious and poetic ex pression, while there is a gratifying fulness in thoir pronunciation. Around both names has grown a perfect halo of romance. They are the twin brothers of a golden earth as Castor and Pollux are of a starlit heaven, and in their association must be for ever memorable. Their glories drew the eyes of the world to "Victoria, their wealth has built up cities, townships and hamlets in numerable, established immense commerce, effected great reforms, made Victoria freo, and in many respects the foremost com munity in the world. They are names that should rercain for ever to mark the most ronowned epoch in this country.

Bub very early an evil genius grew, who for some unknown reason hated the name

—Bendigo. - Like "the man Rogers," he was in a position to spit his venom, and he did so. He dared not show

himseif' in the open, but like the wicked, worked in the dark to obliterate that grand old name. It had rooted itself, however, too deeply in the lives and memories of thousands, to be wiped out all at once, and be proceeded to do it by degrees. He managed to decree that the township—the key-stone name of. every district—should no longer be known as Bendigo, but be called by the harsh, and ugly, and ill-fitting name of " Sandhurst." The change was utterly uncalled for, and was never liked while it was felt that a blow had been struck at the prosperity of the district. Efforts wore msdo at various times to,have a return to the dear old name, bnt without success. As a soother for the

public deprivation, the county was allowed to retain the name Bendigo. But that evidently was only intended for a time. The Colonial " Rogers " is not dead, and only quite recently his meddlesome interference and malignity was put forth in

an effort to obliterate the name as far as this district is concerned, and to describe the district to the north of us, Bendigo.

Public indignation, however, would not stand it, and things were left as they wore.

That this district has suffered by the un warrantable change in the namo of the city is well known, and a public opportunity of stating so and of seeking for amendment was taken the other day before the. Royal Commission appointed to inquire into the causes of the decadonca or rather neglect of gold mining in this district. One gentle man, Mr. Richard Williams, who is in every way qualified to express an opinion on the subject, stated " that there was one matter to which he wished to refer before closing hia evidence. A friend of his, who had lately returned from England, had told him that the Sandhurst gold field was unknown on the London Stock Exchange. The liabitueB there say : —r' There was a big goldfield called Bendigo in Victoria once, but it must be worked out, as we never hear of it now.'. They ap parently did not know that the name had been altered to Sandhurst. If anything could be done in that direction it would be to the advantage of the place. Then again he thought the Government ought to make arrangements for sending cablegrams to the London Stock Exchange, reporting any good yields like the Hercules and Energetic had

a few weeks back."

The truth of that statament cannot be

gainsaid. Tho London Stock Exchange is the touchstone of the world's enterprise). Ballarat is known there, money has flowed into that city until it almost rivals Mel bourne, and it has influence to obtain its every wish for its extension and adornment. Sandhurst is unknown. Bendigo was once known in Britain, even its pre

sent Premier was attracted to it. Ben digo has died out of the knowledge of the London Stock Exchange. It was once known as a marvellous gold6old, but now so far as the money kings are aware, it has been a worked-out field for many years. They know little of its golden reefs giving.50 ozs. to the ton, they are ignorant that its gold is being traced deep towards the centra of the earth, and consequently no British capital comes to help to develop its inex

haustible reefs. The clear lesson to be drawn from this appears to be to return to our first love. Were the name Sandhurst

blotted out and the city again : called Bendigo, the yields of our mines known on the London Stock Exchange and every other exchange as the yields of Bendipo, the result might be astounding. The frequenters of these busy marts knew what old Bendigo was, and as the magic name would be once more to the front and dinned into their ears the glories of .the past might be pictured in tho new revival. Then would Bendigo and Ballarat revolve once more in loving twinsliip, never again to be separated.

In answer to the usual ques tions from the bench as to whether he had any thing to say against the remand being granted, theprisonersaid he wished to call some witnesses. He was proceedine to make some statements in reference to the case, when Sergeant Fahey ad vised him not to say too much or it might be used against hiin hereafter. The Sergeant added that the police would see that any wit nesses tho prisoner wished to call were in at tendance. The accused was then remanded until

Thursday next.

Fip.e in Bayne-stref.t.—This morning, about a quarter past one o'clock, a fire broke out in a four-roomed weatherboard house, situated in Bayne-street, and occupied by a Mrs. Meddings, who earns a living by dying and cleaning clothes Mrs. Meldings had been unwell during the night, and about the hour mentioned had occision to go out iuto the back yard. She ltft a candle burning on the table, and her little gill who slept with her was in the bed. Her son wa? sleeping on a sofa in another room. Whenshe returned to her bedroomshefoundthat tho candle had been knocked over and ignited the wall and the curtains on the bed. Hastily snatching up her daughter, Mrs. Meddings rushed into the other room and aroused her son,' the three of them just managing to make their escape in their night clothes. The alarm was raised, and several neighbors succeeded in saving a table and two or three other articles of furniture. The firebell was rung, and the various brigades promptly responded, but owing to there not being any cabs about, the members had to drag the reels down to the fire themselves, so that by the time they arrived on the scene of conflagration the flames had secured too strong a hold, and the building was completely demolished. Mrs. Meddings, who is only a poor woman, and has two children to support, feels her loss greatly, aa she was not

insured. She had only been living in the. house two or three week3. The building was owned by Mrs. Wright, the liceneee of the Rising Sun Hotel, Eaglehawk.

Foitjjd Dead.—Yesterday morning .(writes■' our Iuglewood correspondent), a magisterial inquiry was held at the police station by Mr. Joseph Tivey, J.P., concerning the death of the man William Lavender, ivho was found dead in the bush about two miles from Inglewood. Ed ward Honnor, warder in the hospital, identified the deceased as an hospital patient, • who was admitted on the 21th September, and left on the 1-lth January without stating his intention of doing so to the authorities. A yonng man named Li. Phillips,deposed that whilst out rabbit shooting, he came upon the body lying about 60 yards from the Taruagulla road. Constable Skepper stated that he had been in search, of the deceased for several days after he left the hospital, but could not find any trace as to his whereabouts. He had passed the spot where the body was found on many occasions. The evideuce of Dr. Alexander Adam showed that the features of the deceased were not recognisable, being eaten away by vermin. He was subject to apoplectic lits, an irregular patient, and sometimes " went oil' his head." Deceased had evidently been dead for several days, and the doctor was of opinion that death was caused by an old com plaint—apoplexy, accelerated by exposure in

the excessive heat. A verdict in accordance with the medical testimony was returned.

Death of Mr. W. I'\ Walker.—News of the dentil of Mr. W. F. Walker, late Commis sioner of Customs, was received by cable on Thursday. The "Argus" states that Mr. Walker was born in Morpeth. Northumberland, •10 years ago, and came to Victoria as a lad in 1857. He spent the whole of his life in Mel bourne in mercantile pursuits, and established the business of lime and coal merchant which now bears his name, and which is carried on in Flin<lms-street, Ife became prominently known in politics in 18S0, and rose to the position of Commissioner of Customs, which office he held for three years. Ill-health, caused by an affection of the heart, compelled him to relinquish" that office,- and also to Beck re3t from private business affairs, and at the beginning of last year he left Melbourne for a trip to Europe. The Government took advantage of his visit to appoint him to be Executive Commissioner for the colony at the Paris Exhibition, But very soon he became ill again, and sought absolute rest at East bourne, in SuBsex, but without avail. A week ago he suffered a severe affliction by the death of I1I3 only daughter, and the telegraphing of that circumstance served to caused his friends in this country to be apprehensive on bis account. He leaves a wife and some young children, who are at present at Eastbourne. Mr Walker was a very able Minister of Customs. He quickly gained both the respect and con fidence of the Government and the House. Not alone as an administrator, but as a speaker he made his mark, two of his speeches being

amongst the best oratorical efforts of that Par

The proportion of liability for the proposed urban trustis set down at about £10,000, but this is only a rough estimate. The "Age" states that Mr. Deakin said he was favorable to the proposal, and admitted that the requirements of the township were quite dis similar to those of the general trust area. He was willing to grant the application, but before anything definite could be decided it would be necessary first to ascertain the proportion of liabilities which the new body would have to take over from the Kerang Irrigation Trust.
