DONOVAN'S CREEK. May 28, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 2 June 1868
DONOVAN'S CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) ..-- -...... .--May 28, 1868. To redeem my promise to you I send the following advice relative to Donovan's Creek. I arrived here on Tuesday last from Alex- andra, and I confess I was as much pleased as surprised at the prospects I saw in the stone piled in the Prospecting claim. There is a tidy machine in process of erection, the property of Messrs Hogan and Mc'Dougall who, you may count, view the locality as it deserves. The evil of leasing large extents of ground has found its way hither, and many a hard-working man is thereby de- barred from holding a claim on this line. Three miles farther down the creek, at the junction of Bear's Creek with it, is another lease on which also are to be found good prospects in a well-defined and large reef. In Bear's Creek there is a party of miners who seem content with their fortune. It would not be wise for any poor man to rush here, unless he first supplied himself with the necessaries to last s...
GHIN GHIN. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 2 June 1868
GHIN GI N. We have made a personal visit to this gold-field, celebrated for the legal proceedings which have engaged the attention of our courts of law fIr a considerable time past. Lately the place has been subjected to oneofthose dull fits always experienced in every new gold-field. Within the past few days, however, a considerable reaction has set in, anre Ghin Ghin promises once more to be one of the most important gold-fields in this district. Along the line of the original prospecting claim the ground is being thoroughly worked, and there is still a oonsi:erablo amount of sold being obtained. There are at present upwards of 300 men along this lin). At right angles to the Palestine lead there are Paddy's -duily, BeStchman's Gully, Rult several others in which excellent prospects have been obtained from the surface to the bed rock ; but at present the water is scarce, and the miners are busy making dams and erecting puddling machines. Upwards of twenty of such machines are now c...

Alexandra Times. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS "Veritsu; Wincit Ounuaia." TUESDAY, JUNE 2, 1868. In making our first appearance at Alexandra on the great and important platform of journalism, we, with all politeness, raise our hat from off our head and, bending our body as gracefully as possible, beg fervently` to express the hope that peace, happiness, and prosperity may rest, increase, and abide with all the inhabitants of this growing, extensive, and important district. &nbsp; We have cast our lot amongst the people of Alexandra, first, in compliance with the expressed wish of a large and influential public meeting, representing the commercial and mining interests of the district ; and, secondly, because we can clearly forsee that Alexandra and the surrounding districts contain the elements of future greatness, progress, and prosperity. Nature has been unusually prolific in distributing around Alexandra gold in great abundance, and, in addition to this, when...
JERICHO. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 2 June 1868
JERICHO. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] A public meeting was held at Poole's Golden Age Hotel, Jericho, on Friday eve- ning last, for the purpose of taking steps to have the dray track cut from the top of the spur into that township. C. B. Chandler, Esq. in the chair. After alluding to the pur- pose for which the meeting had been called, The Chairman said there was no question at all about the necessity of a dray track being cut into the town. It was a matter of great importance to the diggers and store keepers of the whole district. He considered that they alone were to blame for the work not being carried out before now ; for if the attention of the Government had been drawn to this matter, he had no hesitation in saying that they would have been enjoying the benefits of a good road to the Jordan &nbsp; long ago. &nbsp; Mr. R. J. Donaldson had to state that at the request of Mr. Pool and himself, Mr. Lawlor had kindly con...

THE MINES. ALEXANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 2 June 1868
THE MINES. ALEXANDRA. &nbsp; The Homeward Bound Prospecting claim had a crushing last Saturday of 40 tons of quartz, yielding 509oz. 16dwt., and 17 tons of mullock, which gave 26oz. 6dwt.—in all 535oz. 16dwt. A dividend of L119 5s, per 16th share was paid on Saturday last, which with wages amounted to nearly L2,000 distributed by this company in one day for about six weeks work. One satisfactory feature connected with this claim is that this large sum-both wages and dividends-is retained in the immediate neighborhood, and will go to advance the prosperity and develop the resources of the district, in one form or another. The Company has been registered, but scrip will not be issued until the 5th inst. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Albert Company, No. 2 Lucky.-This claim which has now yielded 6,975 ounces of &nbsp; gold from 792 tons of stone to date-as shown by the returns published in another...
Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 2 June 1868
Local and General News. We are compelled to hold over several advertisements and a quantity of other matter for want of space. The postal arrangements between Alex- andra and Melbourne are of a most unsatis- factory character. Apparently we are favored &nbsp; with a daily mail, inasmuch as one mail is despatched from this place every day - the first at one o'clock p.m., via Yea, by which letters are delivered in Melbourne on the following Wednesday morning. The second at six o'clock, a.m., next day, via Doon, meets the Jamieson mail at that place, and is delivered in Melbourne also on Wednes day morning. There are virtually but three mails per week to Melbourne, and the extra mail service is useless, as regards corres- pondence with the metropolis. This evil could be remedied in a very simple manner, by running the mail to Doon daily, instead of tri-weekly as at present. We would then enjoy an actual privilege, and not an apparent one, by a trifling outlay on the part of the...

SEPARATION COMMITTEE. A meeting of the Separation Committee was held at the Commercial Hotel (Milligan's) on Saturday, 30th May, 1868-Mr F. Coster in the chair. Moved by Mr. Milligan, and seconded by Mr Bainbridge-" That Mr. Henry Perkins be requested to proceed to Melbourne, and, with Mr. Pendlebury, to attend before the Commissioner of Roads and Railways on the 2nd prox. to oppose the inclusion &nbsp; of that tract of country between Alexandra and the Junction of the Acheron and Little River, within the area of the proposed road district of Yea, and to urge upon the Commissioner that no part of the area included in the petition from the Alexandra Road District-appointed to be heard on the 22nd June next-be included in the road district of Yea." Carried. Moved by Mr Branch, seconded by Mr Milligan : "That Messrs Perkins and Pendlebury be appointed a deputation to represent the views of the Alexandra &nbsp; Committee, on the foregoing subject." Carried. Moved by Mr C...

To the Editor of the Times. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 5 June 1868
flo the Editor of the 'imes. SIn,--A a school-boy, badly provided with books, and having some spare time every evening after school hours to devote to mental culture, I have to request that you will have thekindness to lay before the people of Alexandra the necessity of establishing n readin g-room in the town, which can be resorted to at (sao) one shilling per week. I myself would find, apart from other advantages, much relaxation from the arid study of science, which my rigorous teacher imposes upon me, and a perfect knowledge rf which is so rigorously enacted by this gentleman of science. If you would afford me space in your valuable journal, I would call for the solution of a question now and then, with the view of exciting in the minds of some of the young people attending school a very laudable emulation; egotism shall by no means actuate my conduct in this regard. I remilnl i.- e-Edit ors, Your obedient servant, JOHN O'CONon.

To the Editor of the Alexandra Times. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 5 June 1868
'o the Editor of the Alexandra Times. Sln,-Your arrival in this' township has caused a general feeling of satisfaction, for now, that we have a paper of our own, we can make our wants known. and communi cate with each 9ther on matters of public i interest. with an ease and rapidity not hitherto within our reach. My object in writing to you at present is to solicit your powerful influence in getting a Publio Library at once established in our township. If a few of us were to meet and make a start, no matter how small, the thing would grow rapidly, and I have no doubt but that we would within a short time K have. not only a respectable library but a reading and lecture room. I throw out this suggestion, hoping that it may lead to some practical result. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, A WORKING MAN.
