Correspondence. (To the Editor of The Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 11 June 1869
S nrrpniuhnnrr. ( To the Editor, of " we 7 nmea.) Smi-I wish to ask the question, is it law ful and just that land which is held to be auriferous, shall be monopolised by those gold-grassing mining speculators ' I have read the Beechworth Bye-laws, and I con sider that they have been framed by men of narrow and selfish minds, who have been working for their own special interest, So far as I can discover, they never entertained the welfareo of the working miner; their chief study has been to advance the interest. of mining swindles. I consider it gros mismanagement on the part of our mini legislature to pass laws which have already proved to be injurious to the well-beingof mining. It is evident by the examples which we see here, that the poor miner Wvho only possesses the means to procure a single right is shqt out from the goldfields by a class whose object is to sap the blood and marrow of the hard-working miner by ap plying to a blind and ani iidifferent Govern ment for tracts of...
GODFREY'S CREEK [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 11 June 1869
GODFREY'S C.REEK'.: SThis place is daily progressing.. The past. two weeks has converted all the old bark buildings into weather-board houses: Go w?here you will. the. hammer, nails and saw are busy at work pulling down and raising up. The township, has now been very care fully laid out by Mr Thompson, the Govern ment surveyor, who.hbas had a diflicult task to perform in keeping the necessary uni for mity of the streets and at the same time satisfying the various claims set up, by one and ano'ber. To have maet everyone's views, the principal street would not only have been as crooked as a dog's hind leg, but allotments in the middle of the street would require various surveys not provided Ibr by professional men. Order and uniformity have been established by the surveyor, and now the place is rapidly assuming the appearance of a respectable township. Several lines of streets have been marked off on the original site rising up the hill. A square lhne been reserved in the centre of th...

YEA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 11 June 1869
,YEA. Tuesday hlst was another day to be re. membered by the people at Yea. There was however a groat falling' off both in the fight ing and general excitement. Throughout the day theio was nothing to mark the fact that an important election was going on, beyond the additional traffic at the various public houses. One independent elector took his seat 'at the fire in the Road Board Office and commenced smoking and spitting. When requested by the Returning Officer to with draw he politely informed that gentleman that he had as good a right to be there as "i'ny' other man," and when forcibly ro moved by the police, he exclaimed that if he had been in Kilmoro he would not be "tinted" in that disgraceful way. A few fights wore quickly suppressed by the, activity of the police.

PULINIrenrIID VR TIERISuRDAY D A IDsnY.v I( Vrltrtasm V'Oscl Omutla, .FRIDAY, JUNE 11, 18lP. WE have heard of a clergyman, who, whilst preaching one Sunday, saw that his con gregation was gradualnly decreasing by one leaving after another, and suspecting that the cause of his congregation getting so, small, was that a ship had been wrecked on the adjoining coast, he exclaimed in the middle of his sermon, "stop, my friends, lot us have a fair start," and closing the Bible, and throwing oilf his gown, he joined his flock in a race for the spoil. Now, we think, that the Minister of Mines might take a lesson from this worthy preacher, and ns he intends to refuse the lar?ug leases applied for on God frey's Creek, he should give the mining com munity a fair start by advertising the day- on which those :aras will he open to the public, so as to prevent the midnight pegging. off which lhas lately beon going on, as well tas the more dangerous system of hired spies who arc employed aboult the...

Original and Selected Poetry. DREAMLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 18 June 1869
Sriginal naub rlrrtrt Drtr4. DREAMLAND. Oh dreamland Is a happy place, A land oft bright and fair ; My daily t'ils I nightly chase, And roam In freedom there. What tho' unreal, I enjoy Not less its magio scenes, No waking trouble, no alloy Or sadness intervenes. As is my wont, the other night I off to Dreamland went- Felt very happy-spirits light, And with the world content. I thought I found a golden reef Quite rlih In preeious ore. Farewell, said I, to care and grief, You'll trouble me no more. And then I thought that nmmbors came And wanted me to sell. They otfer'd any price I'd name, Which plcas'd me very well. In Dreamland I was happy then, Enjoyitls the Ideal- What tho' 'twas dreaming only, when I thought that all was real. But soon I felt dlsturb'l-T? woke, And'snmn, one sail. l:n.o to me 1',"'anrnrj that your rest I ro'ir, I'm glad 1 caught that flea"'

CONCERT AND BALL. -4-- On Monday evening last a grand concert and ball were given at the Corner Hotel, under the patronage of M.U.I.O.O.F. in aid of the Incidental Fund. Mr Whitelaw, who delivered the opening address, stated that although he did not belong to the order of Odd' Fellows still he knew a little about secret societies. In Masonry he was a P.M., which meant top sawyer.' Masons and Odd Fellows used a great many letters of the' alphabet"in a mysterious way, such as G.M., P.G M., &c. This was all foi the purpose of keeping their wives and sisters in the dark, He would reveal a few secrets of these societies for the information of those wives who were kept up late at night waiting for their husbands who would come home looking very innocent, as if they had been doing something of great importance. There were three degrees in masonry. When a man was made a mason he had an apron put on him and then he was told to shut his eyes and open his mouth, whereupon he had a larg...
