Although ten o'clock was the hour fixed for the match, it was eleven a.m. before the necessary arrangement could be made, at which time the Morton team went in for the first innings, and scored 82 before they were finally disposed of.

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 25 February 1871

A public meeting was held at the Eldorado Hotel, Alexandra, on Saturday evening, the 18th instant, to protest against the severance of Growler's Gully portion of the Merton   Riding. There were about 100 persons present. J. Peterkin, Esq., was voted to the chair. The Chairman stated that when in Mel   bourne, he and Mr Coster waited on the Minister of Railways and Roads, when, amongst other things, Mr Wilson was asked what action he intended to take regarding the separation of a portion of the Merton Riding. Mr Coster at that deputation in formed the Minister that the ratepayers of the Alexandra Riding were in favor of separation, and that that was the ground on which he was elected for a seat in the Coun cil in opposition to Mr Whitelaw. He (the speaker) immediately gave Mr Coster's state ment a flat contradiction. It was now for the meeting to express an opinion on the separation question, and to say whether or not Mr Coster was, as he had stated, elected...

MANSFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 25 February 1871

MANSFIELD. (From our own Correspondent). A glorious triumph has been gained at the late shire election by the really democratic candidate the champion of the people's rights, and supporter of the true principles of representative government, notwithstanding the vast amount of opposition brought to bear by the quasi advanced democratic, but actually oligarchical Council and their agents, including some, if not all, their offecrs. Never be fore has so much interest been displayed in this shire relative to the election of a Councillor. It seemed to be pretty well understood that the result of the battle was to decide whether the voice of the ratepayers was to be heard in the management of local government affairs, or they were to continue tamely to submit to be snubbed and ignored as to their wishes and views, collectively and individu ally, by a ruling body, which, far surpassing the Government of Ancient Venice, in its powers of condensation, was notoriously a Council, not of three, ...

S al anmid (q!neral Tgwes. An extra day's racing was provided by the Stewards on Saturday last as a wind-up to the Alexandra Races. Thola was a very fair attendance on the course, and the weather was all that could be desired for the occasion. The proceedings commen ced with the Freeo Hazdicop of L20, for which the following horses started :-Lord of Clyde, Huntsman, Minnie W\arren, Wee Mick, Vagabond, Maud, and Moscow. A good start was effected, Minnie; Warren and Vagabond going away with the lead. They were soon overhauled by IHuntsman and Maud, and a fine race took place between these 'two. Coming down the straight, Hluntsman gradually drew ahead, and came in a wiener. Moscow, who came with a rush at the finish, beat Mr.ud for second place by about a length.

MINING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 3 March 1871

MINING NEWS. -4--- A crushing from the Just In Time was washed up yesterday. We have not heard the result, but believe it was poor, being principally rubble, which was thought might contain payable gold. The Ualatea has a small crushing passing through the mill. It is expected to yield about 4 uz per ton. The reef promises well at present, and is likely to repay the share holders, who have stuck well to it for the past two years. The Saint George Q. iM. Co.

It is singu lar how claims worked on tribute will pay better than co-operative or registered com panies.

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 3 March 1871

(To the Editor.) air-Having had repeated proofs of your kindly feeling towards this quiot retreat, it will not be uninteresting to you to know that the Distriot Road Board have been of late improving the Whittlesea road, and they have .accepted tenders for further im provements. This twill give an impetus to traifo on this line of road, which is the shortest and best from Yea, and even from Alexandra, to Melbourne. I, for one, can not see why a line of coaches could not be started to run from Whittlesea to Yea, if not to extend to your place. However, the matter is seriously talked of, to make appli cation to one of the coach proprietors that run their coaches between Whittlesea and Melbourne to extend the journey to this town. It has been resolved by a lew spirited indi viduals here, to give to the first who shall comply with the wishes of the inhabitant in this respect a bonus of L100, or even moro if that is not considered enough.

A, meeting of. shareholders, creditors, working men, and others interested in the Working Miners' Gold Mining Company Registered), Godfrey's Creek, was held at 13artlett's Hotel, Gobur, on Tuesday last. Mr Rousseau in the chair. Mr Whitolaw stated that he had called the meeting by authority of certain direc tors and shareholders in the company. These gentlemen he had met whilst at Mel bourne lately, and be had submitted a cer tain plan by which the difficulties of the company could be met. This plan had met with the approval of the Melbourne share holders, and it was for the present meeting to say whether they also approved of it. The idea was simply this-that a local managing committee should be appointed to represent the working men--the creditors holders of paid-up scrip, and paying share holders, whose duty would be to have the entire management of the claim until the debts were all paid off in the following rotation : 1st. The wages due to the w...

d~riginal ahb 'rrtleb lnrtrg. THE PIONEER. I.-The Australian Wilderness. The trees and bushes had a shrfrvel'd look ; The ground was hot, and cracked, and brown and Nowhere could one behold a pleasant noork. The birds had winged their flight some other where, The bushman had a dull and jaded air, Gone were his hearty tone and look of cheer 1 Thu squatter's face grew dark with lines of care, To him it had been a disastrous year ; said he .-" Let's take our flocks and slowly south ward steer." The grass was withered, and the creek was dry ; Ills flooks and herds were dying fast away ; Thtre was no sign of rainbow in the sky, Nor had there been for many a weary day Into the wilderness he led the way, In search of running streams and pastures new. O'er swamps and clayey plains his journey lay, A country hateful to the kangaroo. Where no acacia bloomed or eucalypti grew. Away into the wilderness, away I O'er sandy plain and lava.colored rise, Down gullies, where his thirsty flocks would ...

Correspondence. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 3 March 1871

frruspuabeurae. - (To tAh Editor.) Sir-By your last issue I observe that Mr W. Y. Smith has again been diotating terms to the Union Bank, in the interests, he informs us, of the diggers and public generally. Probably Mr Smith imagines he Is killing more than one bird with the same old stone; but in this particular in. stance, as in.several others in which Mr Smith has greatly interested himself, he has altogether overshot his mark. Mr Smith, however, rightly assumes that "a paltry 3d. per oz." is of little conse quence to the Union Bank; and for that very reason this Bank has no intention of running the unnecessary risk that would be involved in complying with MIr Smith's gratuitous public meeting advice. On the other hand, it is manifestly im. portant that miners should come here to expend their winnings with the business people of Alexandra, and it is in their in terests that I take up my pen to deny em phatically that this Bank gives an' "under price for gold," and further, to re...
