The launch of the punt, tue "Farmer's Friend," which is to connect the eastern and western banks of the Goulburn, oppo site Mr Allardyco's station, was to have taklen'Dpiace on Lontlany ul. OuCuslaieraoRl proparation was made for the event; a band of music, consisting of a fife, cla rionet, cornet, and drum, rent the air with the sweetest sounds. About 200 of the inhabitants of Alexandra, arrayed in holiday attire, assembled to witness the in teresting ceremony of launching the vessel, stood upon the beautiful sloping banks of the river. Some of the loveliest daughters of our soil danced upon the deck, adored and admired by their partners in the dance and the surrounding assembly. Mrs Patton, on whom the honor of acting as priestess was conferred, stood ready with a bottle of cham pagne to baptize the "Farmer's Friend" with the sparkling' wind. The screw of Archimedes, the wedge, lover power, and every other material were applied, but alil in vain. 'lbe " Farmer's Friend remained in...

Alexandra Times. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY "Veritas Vincit Omnia." FRIDAY, JUNE 10. 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 June 1870
PunLtIITED rEVRT YRIDAY "Verltas Vincit Oumnna." FRIDAY, JUNE 10. 1870, To-nAT we enter upon our third year in Alexandra, nod, according to ancient custom, we now take a retrospective and prospective view of our position. When we first arri ved' in Alexnndra we found, as is usual in nil new rushes, the carpenter with his hutn mer and saw making a tremendous noise, hbildinga were' being erected everywhere. Our Law Courts were crowded with dispu tants about the numerous incalculably rich' reefs that were: supposed .to exist in every hill. The resoutrees ?of nature: weor young and Untried: The general impression existed that?'as' 30 to 50, oz per ton had' been ob tained'from tbho ireeofs then opener', there was reason to suppose, that other reefs equally "rich ,need only be looked for to do-. velope the 'richest goldfield in Victoria, and tlhat ipdependence and fortune, ease and comfort, were vithin the reach of every pru dent, man in Alexandra. That dream of of our ,youth has pansed a...

YEA. (From a Correspondent.) Whit Monday was a remarkable day in Yea, no less than thre bachelors having entered into the bonds of matrimony on that day. Had it not been for, the gloomi- ness of the weather, no doubt some out- door festivities would have taken place; as it was, everything passed off very quietly. The squatters, as a rule, do not appaer well pleased with the now valuations. I am afraid they are too short sighted to see the advantages to be derived from the Road Board being formed into a Shire, of which there is every chance, if its present valua- tions are maintained. Owing to the success of the late tea meet- ing, I believe it is the intention of certain amateurs to commence a series of monthly entertainments, ? musical and literary &nbsp; to come off ? the full moon in every month during ?

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 June 1870
(To the Editor.) Sir—As an instance of the coolest effron- tery, and a specimen of the most disingeni- ous tissue of what is not likely to be called truth, Mr Coster's letter in your last issue stands unrivalled. Indeed, this gentleman's talents are of a most inexplicable character. One is unable to decide which of two pecu- liar phases of the strange development of his mental organization more to admire. That one by which a string of circum- stances, having no foundation whatever in fact, are put together with a cogency which is astounding; or, that other equally curious faculty which enables the owner to obli- terate from the tablets of his memory every trace of recent actual occurrences; the latter, however, may be held to be in some way conneoted with professional etiquette, and is excusable in a lawyer. This talented gentleman cleverly avoided the sad disasters of the U. T. Flat Company in a manner somewhat resembling the escape of a Lon- don grocer from the terrible barbaritie...
THE PUBLIC ECHO TO "BEAUTIFUL SNOW." [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 24 June 1870
TIHE PUBLIC ECHO TO ' BEI UI'IFUL -..... - SNOW." A lady corrospondent, says the Ballarat Courier, bus sent us the following as an "echo" to "A Fallen W toman's' Story," as recently published in our columns : Poor lone one, dejected one, Could'st thou but know What thousands admire Your " Beautiful Snow." It perhaps might a soothing, A cordial impart, And blunt the keen edge Of remorse in thine heart. Poor, frail, erring sister. )Oh, many there be. That (had'st thou hnt liyed) Would have comforted thee,. But the flat went forth ]From the King on his 'Throne, And with power, yet in love, Whispered " Iaughter come home." You believed in the Saviour, Regretted your sin, And the germ of salvation Was stirring within. When you wrote with such pathos The " Beautiful Snow," And felt like an outcast With nowhere to go. Oh ! sad was thy fate, And gloomy thy lot, And when the snow falls Thou wilt not be forgot. We will hope and believe At your desolate end, The Saviour was husbhad, And brothe...
Original Poetry. LINES ON A SWIPER TAKING THE PLEDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 24 June 1870
LINES ON A SWIPEIl TAKING TnE PLEDGE. The news flew like fire that the Pledge hle had taken, All Ilis thirsty companions for ever forsaken, And the vendors of liquor were loud in their wall, When they heard the old fellow was done with his ale. For the Demons of Drink, like wolves on the fold Had arrayed them for rapinc in scarlet and gold And the wiles they employed were as charming to see As tie sirens of old on the Isles of the Sea. Like thieves in the city when plunder was rife, Those vendors of liqunr rejoiced in their life ; Now like thieves in the city when out upon bail, Those vendors do naught but their sad fate bewail. For raffles ait swindles are part of their trade And to trap the poor toper excuses are made. Mock matches ,nt billiards and catchpenny shows, To lighten his pockets and lengthen his woes. As he passes the loor of each grog-swilling ken, Iio hears the wild shouts of the hal -drunken men, But the chain that once bound him has broken its links, And there's no ...
Alfred Emerson, Esq., solicitor, Alexandra. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 24 June 1870
Alfred Emerson, Esq., solicitor, Alexandra. sir,-1 have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 25th of May instant, and have to say that your explanation of your letter to the Alex andra Times is by'no means satisfactory to me. t'he last part of the libel complainedof states as a fact that which is falso and libellous-via.. that an opinion hero wae universal that the magistrates wished to get rid of1' the present poundkeeper to replacce him by anolder. This is a direct charge of corruption in office, and if true should subject me and my brother mngistrato to removal from the commission of the pence. The manner in' which it is printed, by italicising certain words, is intended to convey the impression that you were well acquainted with all the circumstances involved in such a charge; and nothing but a public :ack nowledgcment that you now find that this 'charge is false and you regret having published the slander will be satisfactory to my feelings.

Alexandra, May 25th, 1870. John P. Rowe, Esq,, Mount Battery, Mansfield. Sir,-Mr John Whitelaw, the oditor of the Alex andra Times newspaper, has just handed me a letter received by him from you, in which you requestlhim to furnish you with the name of the writer of a letter which appeared in last week's issue of said paper, signed "One who was present in Court," and in which you say that said letter charges you with corruption in, your oflice of a justice of the peace. In the first place, I beg to inform yon that I am the writer of the said letter, I being the solicitor for the defenuo in'M'Neil v. Duteater. And secon dly permit me to express my regret that you or anyone blse should think the said letter made any such charge, against you or your brother magistrate. I may howevor state that the said letter was written by me in a great hurry, and ,I will also admit that on to:day going carefully over it. I see thatt i is possible that some people might put such a construction upon it...
