Correspondence. (To the Editor of The Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 18 June 1869
(To the Editor of The Times.) Sir-In jutica to myself I big to make a few remarks in refutation of the statement made by Mr W. V. Smith, in his address to the Bench in the cdls of Gould v. Sons of Freedom claim, Godfrey's Creek, .Mr Smith, as I am informed, accused me of finding a portion of the niney to enable Gould to jump the Sons of Freedom claim, Now, Sir, I beg to state that I have never had any transactions with Gould, with the ex caption of paying him 10s to peg out a claim for me, of which I was put in pos session by the Warden, to save me the ex, penq~ of a journey to Godfrey's Creek, nor Ihd I at any time any conversation with him relating to the Sons of Freedom or any other caie. If I had been in Court at the. time, I 1should have asked the Warden to. allow me to contradiot the statement on oa:h, Trusting you will insert thip, I am, Sir, &o., JOSEPHI C..GUNDRY , Gs;;l~r;;;s;·~-rey'f

(To the E'ditor of the Alexandra Tinmes) Sln,-Allow me through the medium of your paper to express a hope that it is the intention of the Alexandrai Road Blo:rd to expend part of thee public money collected, towards the improvement of the road between Morton and Godfrey's Creek- The sum re. quired for that purpose would be small, but oven were it larger we should think that very little consideration would lead to the conclusion that the attainment of an object so desirable far excccds the pccuniary outlay, more especially as the inhab:itants of God frey's Creek are themselves ratepayers, and therefore entitled to a portion of the money collected for the improvement of their own road. It is well known that Mansfield is the agriculLural district which supplies tl e marke'k at Godfrey'es, and the condition of the road alluded to by which the supplies are sent is equally well known. But the diffi culty of conveyance wh:ch now exists is trifling compared [to what will be the cas when win...

WOOD'S POINT. (From our own Correspondent) The amateur concert in aid of the Mec hanics' Institute (which has been the subject or conversation for the last fortnight) came offlasit night with more than "eclat." At half-past seven nearly all the seats were occupied, and those who had the misfortune to come late found themselves minus places At eight o'clock the building was crowdrd and looking from the stage, nothing was to be seen but a sea of heads eagerly looking forward for the opening of the concert. Th'le Wood's Point band enlivened the township by playing some 'popular airs through the streets prior to its arrival at the Institute. The building, whichu was formerly the Wesleyan Chapel, bat. ,now 'u,,rrehbsed by the Institute, seemed to have put on quite a new fhce.

(To the Editor of 1he Times.) SRn,-'lhe manner in which some of the scholastic establishmerits of Victoria are con ducted has often been the subject of corn ment in your columns, and this can not be wondered at when it is known that the pupil in many instances outstrips the pedagogue in his knowledge of almost every branch of learning which he pretends to teach. There are others, howevi, thei " Phil MI'Quade" school who delight in mystifying their juvenile pupils, and instead of enlightening merely bucceed in bewildering the youthful mind. A curious instance of this sort, I have heard on reliable authority, haplened in a school, on a flourishing goldfield not 100 miles from Alexandra. A class of young children were being taken through a spelling lesson, and a very good system was being pursued, viz., that of asking the pupil the meaning of the word just spelt. The word "happinoss" had been. given and the question as to its import put. One little lady answered, " I would be happy if ...
A TRIP TO MELBOURNE., No. VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 25 June 1869
A TRIP TO MELBOURNE., No. VIII. * On Saturday morning I awoke about break o~;f day, according to my usual custom, bat 'felt conscious that the brandy, porter, and oysters of the previous evening had pro duced anything but a satisfactory effect upon my head, so. after a few yawns and turning round for relief, I thought of the the folly of drinking more than one actually requires, and was getting convinced that there was nothing like absolute teetotalism. "How many such resolutions have been made in the morning that have disap)eared like the early dew on the grass. Those morning theadaches are loud rappings at the door of intellect by reason and common sense saying, " Let me in, let me in," yet notwithstanding their benevolent intentions, they very sel dom get admitted. Amidst these reactions and half -formed resolutions, I went to sleep, and slept soundly for three hourz longer. When I awoke, the general aspect of affairs had improved, but still I did not feel alto gether right, so a...
