(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 July 1868
(To the Editor of the Alexandra. Timea.). 8in,-Having just returned from a trip to. Turnagulla, whilst there I happened.to. take up the Dunolly paper containing a paragraph, extracted from your paper,. stating that Mr Black, engineer, had introduced a new sort of table which presents six feet by five ot loose quicksilver. I claim to be the inventor and patentee of this description of table. I tegistered an amalgamating and puddling machine which appears in the Government. Guaotte of J'une, 1868. My amalgamator Inpesents a surlface of hot and clear mercury. the whole l,.ngth and breadth of the tables. The tailings are ground as ftst as discharged,, The machine creates galvanic, action from the bottom end of the tables back to the top.. The cost will be about one half of prehent machines. The amalgamator is self-acting, so that the men in charge need not handle the mercury at all. Two of your largest interested capitalists are'assisting me. This machine, when completed, will be the me...
Correspondence. MINERS PROTECT YOURSELVES. (To the Editor of The Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 July 1868
Iurrsrnnubrenrt. MINERS PROTECT YOURSELVES. (To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) SIR,--The hospital question having been discussed at great length, and having as sumed something like a definite position, promising immediate development, I would earnestly urge upon the mining; community of this place the advisability of forming at the same time a miners' association vuch as has been found to work beneficially in other parts of Victoria. The i,!plorable mining accident which occurred at the Tulloch, Castle claim, by which Alexander :Fraser has. received serious injuries, and the recent fatali accident at the Eldorado reef, have induced' me to broach the suhject. The construction of such an association is simple and could be easily carried out. Let the miners call a publlio meeting for the purpose and elect an hnorary secretary who would be posae.ssed of sufficient energy, and benevolence as would enable him to, give a portion of his time to the intetests of his suffering fellow tow...

Although the political battle which for so many months has been scattering ruin over Victoria may, so fhr as the actual combatants are concerned, be con sidered a drawn one, yet, in point of fact, the victory and triumph, to the extent to which they refer to Sir Charles Darling are complete, and final justice has now been done to that gentleman, and that is all that was asked for him.

MAINDAMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 July 1868
MA INDAM P L E. &nbsp; &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Pride of the Paps Co.,are getting out stone and will crush as soon as 50 or 60 tons are ready. Good gold has been struck in the Home ward Bound, Hardy's Claim. A trial crush will b made this week. The Kilean had a crushing last week from the large reef, three feet wide. It did not &nbsp; turn out well, only 4half dwt. per ton. They have for the present stopped crushing and are now working on the small reef in the, claim which gave a payable yield from a former crushing. The Empress Prospecting claim has bleen jumped by the tributers, and is looking pretty well. Some fair stone is now being taken out. The Walter Montgomery is being worked on tribute. 'The last crushing gave 15 dwt. per ton. The tributers time will be up in about one month. The rates for crushing here are:.For 5 to 10 tons (trial), 15s per ton; for 50 tons (general), 8s per ton.
BIG RIVER. JULY 6th. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 July 1868
BIG RIVER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) JULY 6th. An untimely rush of water unfortunately caused a flooding out of the Hope on Hope Ever claim on Tuesday last, and it is feared that further working in the shaft will be at an end for this summer. Mr Charles Bond, the enterprising tributer, had just succeeded in securing a very promising lot of stone which is now going through the mill, and from which a very payable return is expected. This claim must be eventually worked by a tunnel from the mill side of the hill. The tunnel would require to be 1000 feet long, but the returns from the reef fully justify the expense.

No ,definite reasons, however are given to supporlt this view of the matter, nor can we conceive ofl any possible grounds for this statenm.nt, save one, and that is, a belief which may be lurking in some minds that the" place is not likely to he per manent. Do these grurnhlers really anticipate that the Hospital, if built at this time, may, in a fbw months or years he left standing amidst a waste of those peculiarly mournful and dilapidated structures known as Austra lian ruins, that. Alexandra will be deserted and depopulated? If so, we beg most respectfully to differ with this view of the case.
