History

There was only one steam-engine at the end of 1852 or beginning of 1853 on Ballarat.[1]

In 1852 there were no steam-engines in Ballarat. The first was in 1853—Campbell's. Ours was the second. Campbell was only a puddler, not a crusher. It is quite impossible there could have been three or four steam-engines in use in Ballarat without my knowing it—even within three or four miles.[2]
