GE rTLEM N, I take this early opportu nity of announcing that it is msy intention to offer myself as a candidate for a seat in the new Alexandra Road Board.

(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 July 1868

(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) MR EDITOR,--As our locality is but little known at present I enclose a copy of a re- solution passed at a public meeting, for the purpose of petitioning Government to have the name of our township called Higinbotham which shows that the inhabitants are awaken- ing to a sense of their importance. You will perceive we are Loyal Liberals. To make a fair start, I must first inform you that "Higinbotham" is ten miles from Yea, on the Murindindi Creek, a tributary of the Muddy. My purpose is to furnish you with the full particulars of the growth and advancement of the place for publication for the information of the public. It is now just six months since the pleasant slopes of the Murindindi were occupied solely by the kangaroo and wallaby, now soon to resound to the enlivening music of the stampers. The first prospecting claim was taken out by Cockburn, M'Leish and Co., for the Galatea Reef. Some weeks after, Messrs Graham and Co., took up an allu...

(To the Editor of The Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 July 1868

(To the Editor of The Alexandra Times.)   DEAR SIR,-There is an old story of a boy and a pitcher of grapes, and of the boy taking such a large handful that he could not get either grapes or hand out of the vessel. I read a book once entitled " Too clever by half," the hero in which spoiled everything he did by his immense talent and long-headedness. Even a "canny Scot" may grasp too many nuts or grapes, and may be a little too clever, (although it is seldom that particular portion of our community makes a false move against its own interests). We had it startling matter thrust upon our consideration a few days ago, which has caused no small amount of uneasiness to the inhabitants of Alexandra, but I imagine when the matter comes to be thoroughly sifted, and when the prayer, or rather suggestion, of Mr Macintyre is granted, and the electoral roll made up from the roll of the Mansfield Shire, there will not be a single vote on the other side of the Goulburn, and the cleve...

(To the Editor of The Alexandra Times.) DEAR SIR,-Consternation has been de- picted in the faces of a number of our towns- men in consequence of the fatal news to the effect that the exercise of the franchise in forthcoming election for the Road Board   will be wholly restricted to those who had the good fortune to pay the hateful rate to the Mansfield collector Mr Macintyre, although " lost to sight" for some time past, is by no means asleep, and I fancy this last little move of his will be a tough nut to crack for the good folks of Alexandra. Bravo, Mr Macintyre ! Go it, lad! My own opinion is that there will be tenders called before long for erecting council chambers at Jerusalem Creek, or on a line with the Full and Plenty Hotel, Thorn- ton, and the bulk of the kerbing and channel- ling will be done in the immediate vicinity of the Dry Creek. Our Road Board members in expectancy (I mean those who reside on this side of the Reubicon), have been basking in the hopeful...

Correspondence. THE ROAD BOARD ELECTION. (To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 July 1868

Correspondence. -4--e THE ROAD BOARD ELECTION. (To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) DEAR SIR,-I take the liberty of for- warding to you for insertion in your valuable journal the following statements in reference to a letter received from Mr Warden Ake- hurst to the effect that the Assistant Com- missioner and himself concurred in a suggestion made by Mr Macintyre, of Thorn- ton, relative to the qualification of voters in the election for a new Road Board at Alex- andra, which is to take place on the 13th day of August next. I will first explain the cause of action taken by that gentleman. The portion of territory excised from Mans- field Shire on the 3rd of April last, is bounded by the river Goulburn, and that portion for which Mr Mncintyre claims so much privilege is on the other side of that river, and has never been connected with any district, shire, or borough. The aim of that gentle- man is too apparent to be misunderstood. Doubtless, he is under the impression, that upon...

ALEXANDRA ROAD BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 July 1868

ALEXANDRA ROAD BOARD.   -4.---. A meeting of the Separation Committee was held at Milligan's Hotel, Alexandra, on Tuesday night, to take into consideration the matter of a letter received from Mr Akehurst, in reference to the coming election for the District Road Board. Present :-Messrs Peterkin, Raphael, Per- kins, Coster, Cooper, Pendlebury, Downing, Hall, Cronin, Milligan, and Bainbridge. Mr Raphael was voted to the chair, and stated the object of the meeting to be as follows :-A letter had that day been received from Mr Akehurst, returning officer, stating that he had been written to by Messrs S. Jones and Macintyre, who suggested that in that part of the Alexandra district which had formed portion of the Mansfield Shire those only whose names appeared on the electoral roll of that Shire should be eligible to vote at the coming election of members of the Road Board. Mr Akehurst stated that Mr Stephenson, Assistant Commissioner of Roads and Bridges, was of opinion th...

RASPBERRY AND GAFFNEY'S CREEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 July 1868

RASPBERRY AND GAFFNEY'S   CREEKS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The Malma Claim has had a crushing of about 60 tons of stone, the yield therefrom being 38 oz. As there is an abundance of stone which will pay at about the same rate it is the intention of the owners of this claim to erect machinery as the cost of crushing at present is too high. With a machine in con- nection with this claim the above yield would pay handsomely. The Tribute at the Lauraville yielded 34 oz. for two weeks' work. This is one of the cases in which tributers make money out of ground which can only be worked at a loss by the company. Would it not be well for companies to take a leaf out of the tributers book sometimes, and try how their system of working would go, by way of experiment only ? Hunt's Gold Mining Co.--The washing up at this claim realised 152 oz. 2 dwt.   The Rose of Denmark (also on tribute) from 400 tons, which occupied only three weeks in crushing, obtained 577 oz....

THE EARTHQUAKE IN THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. HONOLULU. HAWA[?] APRIL 15. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 July 1868

THE EARTHQUAKE IN THE SAND- WICH ISLANDS. HONOLULU, HAWAII' APRIL 15.. The barque Comet, from the Sandwich Islalands, brings account of a terrible volcanic eruption by Mauna Loa, which began its demonstrations on March 27th. On the 28th 100 earthquake shocks. were felt, and during the two weeks following t0 April 13,200 earthquake shocks occurred. At Waischina the earth opened in many places, and a tidal wave sixty feet high rose over the top of the cocoa trees a quarter of a mile in- land, sweeping human beings / houses, and every- thing moveable before it. A terrible shock pros- trated churches and houses, and killed many per- sons. In all, one hundred lives were lost, besides a thousand horses and cattle. The craters vomited fire, rock, and lava, and a river of red hot lava, five or six miles long flowed to the sea at the rate of ten miles per hour, destroying everything before it and forming an Island in the sea. A new crater, two miles wide, opened, and threw rooks and streams ...

Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 July 1868

Local and General News. -4-t- The utmost consternation prevails through- out Alexandra, consequent upon the receipt of Mr Akehurst's letter relative to the coming election. It appears that those who reside in that portion of the new district which was   formerly part of the Mansfield Shire must derive their right to vote from the Mansfield roll, and, inasmuch as almost all persons rated here had (in contemplation of the for- mation of the new district) refused to pay their rates, the eligible voters of Alexandra will dwindle down to about half-a-dozen. Truly these fortunate men who hold in their hands the destiny of the new Road Board, will become objects of extreme solici- tude, especially to the candidates. But the aspirants for municipal honors must gently woo the trans Goulburnites. They are the men-or, as Frank Weston would say , "they are the people." With them rests the making or unmaking of members for our new Road Board, and we will not be surprised to find the...

THE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 July 1868

THE MINES. -4---t Ajax Gold Mining Company.— This com- pany have been engaged for some months past in doing dead work. A shaft has been sunk to a depth of 220 feet through hard solid rock to strike the reef on the underlay. Driving has now been commenced from this shaft to cut the reef which is about 6 feet from the end of the drive. The old shaft was put down on the underlay, following closely the run of the reef and taking out the stone therefrom until the claim had been thoroughly prospected, and the permanent and payable character of the reefs fully proved, then the new vertical shaft was put down to work the mine in an economi- cal manner. This is one of the few mines which has been opened up in a systematic manner, and the company have employed the district mining surveyor to make plans and sections of the entire workings, by which at a glance may be seen the extent of work done and to be done in the mine. This will enable the manager to make accurate calculations and deductio...

Alexandra Times. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS. " Veritas Vincit Omnia." FRIDAY, JULY 17, 1868. THE political crisis-under the paralyzing effects of which the colony has for so many weary months labored, and which has held us up to the scorn and ridicule of those both here and in Great Britain who look upon Victorian society as a semi-civilised agglome- ration of incoherent atoms, utterly unfit to govern themselves-is at an end, and there is rejoicing in all parts of the country, and by all shades of politicians. The charge of wilful obstructiveness has again and again been made against the leaders of both sides of the House, and in the warmth of debate and excitement of party feeling much bitterness has been imported into the struggle. But the impartial observer of events as they have transpired, and even the moderate partizans of both of the lately opposed fac- tions, will admit that both sides were sincerely anxious to terminate a struggle which was unmistakeably re...

United Kingdom, Spring Cieek.-'l'lhe lawsuit between AM'Donald' and the shlare holders, which bid fair to occupy our law courts for some time, was brought to ian abrupt and satisfactory termination on Fri day by the intervention of a friend of both parties who acted as arbitrator. An in junction had been obtained at Jamieson by M'Donild, at considerable expense, and the other side had engaged the services of some of the ablest lawyers in the colony, when they came together and in five minraes conversation muually agreed 'to settle their disputes over a nobbler of excellent Irish whiskey, instead- of in- the Supreme Court of the colony..
