(To the Editor of The Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 September 1869

(To the Editor of T27e Times.) Sir,-In your last issue I observed a very foolish letter, signed "A Miner," at Godfrey's Creek, which commenced by asking '" Has the Mining Surveyor power to enter on claims surveyed by him, and re-survey them for another claimant ?" Undoubtedly he has. The Surveyorisnot a Warden ; he has np right unless called upon before a proper tribunal to settle or interfere with any dispute. The Surveyor has the power to enter upon claims at any time for the purpose of adjusting or com pletmg his sprveys, and making specialreports. all this can be done without smashiqg wind lasses or buckets, or cutting ropes, and those who threaten to smash his head, and "chaw him up," as was lately threatened. had better take care what they are about, or they may find themselves placed in safe quarters where their smashing propensities will be placed under careful subjectioq.

A TRIP TO MELBOURNE. (To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 September 1869

A TRIP. TO MELBOURNE. -.(To the .Editor of .tl? .Alexandra Time.). SIR-1 have often thought of the strange 9ps and downs that befall a poor digger in the oeprse, of a few months, and sometimes in the course of a few days--poor to-day, rich to-morrow. So it always has been, and I suppose always will be on the goldfields. Here is a case in point-A few days ago I started for Melbourne. for the purpose of dis posing of three or four thousand scrip in the new l9ags. (the Sneak and Swindle). Upon arriving in town, I was soon introduced to a few of the smart sharebrokers " Under the Verandah," each of whom seemed anxious to become my agent on the usual terms. I invited them, one and all, to dine with me that evening, in order that I should have an opportunity of impressing upon their minds the value of the new mine. Well, Sir, punctual to the moment, my new friends arrived, and I looking out for No. 1, lost no time, but hastened to describe the auriferous nature of the country in the neigh...

Selected Poetry. THE LADDER OF FAME. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 24 September 1869

Irtrtth JDrtrq. -4---- THE LAIIDER OF FAHE. I once saw the Ladder of Fame, It stood o'er a ditch full of slime ; At its foot were the halt and the lame, Andstrong men were striving to climb.. And all eyes were fx'd upon one Whose triumph shone out in Ills face I And they spoke of the deeds he had done, And he btill appeared rising lflace. But his triumph soon chang'd Into donuht And he look'd round am awzel and perplext i For a stave of the lahtlir was out, And he couldn't reach up to the next, So he sought inspiration f'rgnj Trve ; I scarcely could catch what he said, When a brother who stood just above. .. Turn'd and struck hitna blow on,the hlead, At this there arose a loud cry. Two ill-looking men-Jones and Brown Who stood on the ladder close by, Endeavoured to hustle him 4qtwn. But his grasp was so stubborn and tight, That Isis knuckles were rapp'd all in vain i And he sent out feet left and right, 'Till his enemies were writhed with the pain. Then one cried aloud, "It were bas...
