Wednesday 2 February 1853, The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser

THE NORTHERN GOLD FIELDS.

THE ESCORT.

The escort from Tamworth arrived at Maitland on Sunday evening, after an interval of three weeks, bringing 952 oz. 5 dwts.. 9 grs. of gold from the Hanging Rock and Peel, but none from Bingara, or the Rocky River. We have not heard, indeed, whether arrangements have yet been made for extending the opportunity of conveyance by escort to the Rocky River, but the quantity of gold stated to be now produced there renders it very desirable.
