(To the Editor of the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 7 July 1868

(To the Editor of the Times. ) Sut,-I believe that we have plenty of the right sort of fellows in Alexandra for either an Amateur Dramatic Club or Philharmonic Society. I am prepared either to dance or hold the candle in any arrangement of the kind, and would suggest that the matter be talked over during the present week, and some steps toaken to organise a club at once. "Let them start with a rrand entertainment for the benefit of the Alexandra Hospital. This would be sure to draw a crowded house, Why should we allow singers, dancers, Iron clads, and all manner of performers to run away with our cash out of the district, when we can get up as good fun amongst ourselves, and keep the money for benevolent purposes? It is wrong, Mr Editor, and something must be done at once, so give this hurried note a place in your valuable journal, and stir this matter up a little. Yours respectfilly, AMATEUR.

'A public meeting of the inhabitants of Thornton was held at The old House at Home, on Thursday, July 2nd, to pro test agairat the closing up of the Thornton road at Thornton. Mr Christie was un animously voted to the chair. The chairman observed that he was sorry they had to meet for such a purpose as they had on the present occasion. Tie said that he had some ex perience as to roads and road boards, having been a member of the Whittlesea Board, and he never saw such scandalous work in the survey of roadsas there was in the Thornton district. It was quite clear that there was "something rotten in the state of Denmark." lie had no doubt the whole afhair would be ventilated that evening. lIo now called on the gentlemen present to move resolutions.. Mr Samuel Fitzjohn moved, "That this meeting is of opinion that the way in which the Upper Goul burn road has been surveyed is not only a curse to the district, bnt a scandal to the Land De...

(To the Editor of The Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 7 July 1868

(To the Editor of The Alexandra Times.) SIR,-You have done at least one good s'rvice to this district by advocating an Hospital at Alexandra. I heard that the matter was about to be started at once, but ourin" the past week there has been nothing done. I once, Sir, had a leg broken on one of our gold-fields-a compound fracture and but for the attention I met with in an hospital there, I should either have been in Heaven or in Hell long ago, as nothing but the greatest care could have saved my life. My life, of course, is a matter of little con sequence to the public, but it is everything to me. From a sense of gratitude I will subscribe one pound per quarter to the Alexandra Hospital, and will do all I can to get others to subscribe as soon as the matter is set a-going. I am, yours, &c., GRATITUDE. AIr M'Kenzie has kindly consented to ol lect snbseriptions, and wilt go round amongst the people of Alexandra some day this week.-ED. Times.]

WOOD'S POIN.T.. 4--- (PFROJC OUR OWN CORREsPONDENT.)' Wood's Point has hitherto enjoyed a com- parative immunity from loss of human life through accident, but it is my painful duty to chronicle a sad event which has- cass' a, gloom over the neighborhood. On Tuesday last, the 30th ult, about eleven o'clock in, the forenoon, on. drawing up a bucket of; water'from a well-hole near her. dwelling.. Mrs Brew slipped and fell in. Her head' came in contact with a projecting stone,.near " the bottom, which fractured, her skull ;. this alone was sufficient to cause death, but being: rendered' insensible, she was. drowned,. although there were not two feet of water. in the well. A neighbor going to the same place for water; about an hour after, had the, first intimation of the awful occurrence. Truly, " in the midst of life we are in death."' Mrs Brew was well-known; and held tn esteem and respect by everyone, and her un-' timely end" has caused a profound sensation. in this place. On Wednesda...

Correspondence. (To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 7 July 1868

Correspondence.   (To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) Dear Sir, — Cases of such thorough honesty as I am about to relate are of such rare oc- currence that I think it only doing justice to that noblest work of God-an honest man- that genuine honesty, wherever discovered, should be proclaimed to the world, especially in such a case as the following, where we find it so largely developed in an aged man who has to struggle very hard to earn his daily meals ; so it is that I beg for space in your journal for its publication. I had occasion yesterday to visit Ghin Ghin, and while there I lost, through a hole in my pocket, a pocket-book containing £10 in bank notes - also a cheque. I did not discover my loss until I arrived home at dark in the evening. It being then too late to make any search, I waited until this morning, when I went back on the road leading to Ghin Ghin, thinking I might have dropped it on my way home. Never assuming that I would ever see it again if I ...
