A particular feature of the 1863 gazette is compensation claims paid to the Chinese following the Burrangong riots that had occurred during 1860 and 1861. Though not as well known as the Eureka rebellion, the Burrangong (or Lambing Flat) riots involved more people and lasted much longer than the events at Ballarat in 1854.
CLAIMS OF CHINESE TO COMPENSATION FOR LOSSES DURING BURRANGONG RIOTS.
It is hereby notified, for the information of the parties interested, that those Chinese whose claims to compensation for losses sustained through the Riots at Burrangong, in the year 1861, have been admitted by the Government, in accordance with the Report of the Special Commissioner appointed to investigate their claims (as more particularly set forth in the Schedule hereunto annexed), will receive the amounts to which they are respectively entitled, upon application at the Gold Commissioner's Office, Burrangong, during the week commencing Monday, 21st instant.
The persons applying for payment will be required to satisfy the Commissioner entrusted with this duty, of their identity with the original claimants.
