GODFREY'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 2 July 1869

GODFREY'S CREEK.   This place has received a temporary check in consequence of the jumping and law pro ceedings connected with the claims on the deep lead. The Working Miners' Ballarat Star, and Cosmopolitan are the only claims on which the whole of the purchase money has been paid. Callaghan's, which was sold for £7000, has fallen into the hands of the original owners, and the deposit of £100 has been forfeited. The same thing has happened with several other claims. The purchasers have not been able to float their companies in consequence of this jumping. As soon as proper titles can be obtained for the ground these claims will again become valuable, but in the mean time Melbourne and Ballarat men will invest no more of their capital, so Godfrey's Creek must depend on its own resources. Whether individual miners will improve the place more rapidly by their own efforts than assisted by a large stream of capital is a matter on which there is no room for a difference of o...

WQOD.'S POINT. (From our own Coirespondent.) Tihe weat her here for the past week has been very severe-a contipual rain falling the whole time, which has made things very un pleasant.

(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 16 July 1869

(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times) Sln,-The following is an outline of min ing proceedings here at the present. The Working Miners', is the most important, as it now attracts the greatest attention both here and in other places. Their new shaft is down about 20 feet and work will be resumed on Monday morning again. I can hardly say it is in full working order yet, but the manager, Mr Hlenderson, is using every effort to have it in good working order soon, and at the least possible expense. I have every reason for saying it will be the best mining property in the district whilst such easy access to the auriferous parts of the ground can be had as that which he intends carrying out. The Golconda that was purchased by the Working Miners' Company, about one mile from the township, is now sinking in the centre of the flat, and is going right on the deep ground. This claim is only about 80 yards from Ryan's on the same line. In Ryan's claim they are getting up wash stuff which looks w...

Callaghan was struck out by the Judge of the Court of Mines at Jamieson because I had made a mistake in the notice of appeal. I would request you to allow me to contradict it. When the case was called on, Mr V. Smith raised two objections to the notice-1. That the time for the hearing of the appeal was not stated with sufficient precision. 2. That the notice was bud because the appellants them selves had not signed it. No appeal was entered in April, but the Court of Mines was not fixed till June. I therefore followed the wording of the statute, and fixod the date as near as I could. As regards the signing of the notice, I affixed my signature to it, stating myself, "Solicitor for and on behalf of the appellants above-named." 1 informed the Judge that both Mr Smith's objections had been expressly overruled by the Chief Judge ...
