[FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.]

ARMIDALE.

SATURDAY.

There are now about 200 persons on the Puddledock diggings, and many are doing well, others but little. Some deposits are rich. The present working ground is all occupied ; the main lead is supposed to fall in Cameron’s Swamp, which is to be tested on Monday, and if successful, a great rush will probably take place. Persons at a distance should wait the result.
