Information has reached us of a. new rush to ground at the foot of the Lammerlaw Range, situated on Gardener’s track, between the Waipori River and the Little Beaumont, about 16 miles from Wetherstones. There are about 30 men at work on this ground. It is only about three weeks since that number arrived. One party have struck a spur on .the Waipori River, and are cutting a tail race for, sluicing purposes. They are all very sanguine of success, and our informant and party hope to be-able to tell us of some very* good results. Our informant also states that the land in the vicinity is of a very superior quality for agricultural purposes,— ‘ Tuapeka Timep.’
