(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 1 October 1869
(To. the Editor oJ the Alexandra Times.) Sir-Feeling assured that your columns are always open for the temperate expres sion of opinion on public matters, I claim, as a ratepayer, the privilege of being heard anent the late prose edings in the Shire Council. I will take that particularly clever letter signed -'Fred, Coster," which appeared in your last issue, as the pabulum for my observations. This Mr Coster makes me think of a bullock that has stupidly run himself into a deep mud hole, and bespat tered'himselt and his neighbours in his qin gainly efforts to extricate himself. Certanlhy, his letter is " aw a muddle" from beginning to end, and he has not enabled the rate payers to discover anything, I think, but the state of mud in which hae himself is involved. I ith regard to " the motive" for (what he calls)" the silly exhibition which took place at the Council on Tuesday evening," and which he seems so anxious to throw his light. upon, I think most of the ratepayers can -discove...

(7o tluh Editor of the Alexandra Times) Sns,-Itis not my intention to enter into a paper war w.th-''A-Deep --Sinkor,"-but I cannot pass unnoticed his feeble attempt to defend a bad cause, which appeared in your issue of last weak. When a person is beaten in the discussion of any questioijt gener ally follows that be sinks to personalities in order to mantain his position, or in other --ords-tosupply in scurrility wvhat he lac?s in sense. I am sorry to see that "A Deep Sinker" has been compelled to adopt this last and unmanly expedient. "Calling people fools may show a man's temper,\but never his good sense. Abuse is the cowards last weapon when all other means have failed, When " A Deep Sinker" endeavours to dis cuss the question at issue properly I will be prepared to answer him, and in the meantime I bid him beware of his temper.-I am, Sir, yours, &c., A. MINER Godfrey's Creek, Sept. 22.

(To the Editor) Sir-Will you have the goodneos to cor reer, a few errors which appeared in last Friday's isasu of Alexandra Tinms, in re ference to the underground workings and some of the plant of the Sons of Freedom Company. First, it was stated that a drive had been put in 95 feet eastward, in w.,sh dirt, from the bottom of the shaft. The drive referred to does extend that distance, and in good payable washdirt. but it is at what we call the upper level, 100 feet from the esr lace. Secondly, in leference to the reef drive, which states that a reef drive will be started as soon as washing commences. I beg to state that it has been stared loig ago, and driven to the distance of 88 feet from the shaft. 'Thirdly, the height of the large water tank is only 8 feet above the puddling machines (not 25) but 33 feet frm the sur face. I am, Sir, &c., WM. WILLIAMS. Godfrey's Creek, September 290, 1880.

The guests. were numerous and respectable, inolu,. ding the elite of the " Beauty" of Gobur.

The loom wae neatly decorated by Mrs. and thie Misses Willoughby. In the' centre of the building and adjoining the east end was.a cross made of wood, tlstefully covered and adorned witl flowers, on either side of which were the mortoes. on circular tab lets ''God save the Queen", "Ei'in Welcome''.

Correspondence. (To the Editor of the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 1 October 1869
Jurrr~tinurutte. (To the Editor of the Times.), Sir-About the time of the formation, off this road board district (now shire) there was: great talk of a water supply for Alexandra. Since then the affair has died out, ands the. reason I have yet to learn. It seems there has been money enough to-spare for a variety of works, which I candidly think could-have been better done without. I know not. whether much engineering difficulty would bo encountered, or whether the cost would be altogether beyond the ability of our newr shire to meet; but this I do know, that the. hot summer is almost upon us. and as civilised! inhabitants of an important town, we ought in a sanitary point of view to have a copious. supply of water for baths, cleansing, etc, as well as for domestic purooses. I don't grudge our industrious watermen. the money they earn at present, but I fancy the tax on the inhabitants, for water under the present system, is really far-heavier than. they would have to pay for it laid...
AMATEUR CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 1 October 1869
AMATEUR CONCERT. The amateur concert in aid of the funds of the Common School, that had been pre- vlously notified to take place on Wednes- day, but which, owing to an unavoidable circumstance, had to be postponed, came off on Saturday evening last at the Corner Hotel. The attendance was not very large, which may be accounted for by the fact of sufficient publicity not being given as to the precise evening of the entertainment, and also, in consequence of Saturday night being chosen. In small townships such as ours, this is about the worst night that could be selected, as all our business people and many others are quite unable to spare the time to attend entertainments on this evening. Mr M. Raphael was chosen as Chairman, and in- troduced each performer in turn. In conse- quence of the absence of some of the per- sons who were announced to take part in the concert, the order of the programme could not be adhered to. This is to be regretted, as any lady or gentleman who has consent...
