WOOD'S POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 30 July 1869

WOI)D'S POINT. (From -cul oina Correspon'ileat.) -' The great event of the week is the start; ing in business of a rival butcher of the:` name of Mr Palmer, who has opened: a but f cher's' shop" in the premises formerly occu;: jpied by Mr Messrs Wolson and Recsh,' Bridge Street. It appears that the stock of' I sheep brought'into the township from time to time was in excess of the actual require-: ments, consequently the butchers were not. v able to take all the sheep off the hands of the drovers. Mr Palmer feeling; aggrieved& . at this, has started a shop in opposition to' the other butchers, and has reduced the pricer I. of beef and mutton to 3d and 4d, and saysa t he will continue to supply his customers at: these prices. All agree that the price of' . meat was rather high before, but at the pre-. t sent high price of cattle, it is impossible for. s the public to be supplied at the above-men- tioned price.

(To the Editor of The Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 6 August 1869

(To the Editor of The Times.) Sir'-liPhiat Mr Greig was dissatisfied with the verdict givel against him last court day is not at all astonishing, but the questionable taste displayed by him in rushing into print, to vent his spleen, I leave to the judgment of the public. I was engaged to assist him in his survey of the Howqua bridge, at which service I was employed four days, exclusive of Sunday, fbr which I charged him at the rate of 10s per day. I had in addition to pay my travelling expenses, which amounted to over 10s per day. Ferry and punt fees amounted to 2s. Gd., making a total of £4 3s. Gd., the amount of claim. I leave it to any impartial person to say if my charge was exorbitant, in the face of n,y arrangement with him for the sum of L5, which latter amount he stated in the presence of three members of the Road Board ie had agreed to pay me. I am, Sir, Your Obedient Servant, HENRY W. ALSTON. August 4tb, 1809.

(r1 the Editor'of the Alexandra Times.) Si a,--What can the'miners of this district be thinking about ? They complain loud and long about the mining laws of this colony in general, and those of the B3:ueolworth ditrica t in parricular, nod yet they do.not try to have them changed. They are asked by the miners of Spring Creek .to come forward and lend a helping hand ; they make no response but stand.mute as if they felt satisfied to.let things remain as they are. Shame, brother miners. Why do you not. stup' torward and put your shoulder to the wheel. to nssise those who have already begun to battle for our rights? You must be well convinced. long ago that our mining bye-laws are a disgrace to the intelligence of any community. of miners. But that is not all, as a class we have no voice whatever in framing the-laws we live undir, and never will have if we do not, insist on. having it.. I hold that the miner's qualification for voting should simply be his miners's right, and until tlha...
