(2b the Editor.) Sir-As it will be seen by the correspon daence road at the last Counlot meeting, that I protested Eagainst the so called public meeting of ratepayers hold at Thornton on Monday, the 18th instant, on the ground that no one there knew that there was to be any meeting of rate payers at all, at least, it was only known to the hole-and-corner gentlemen-Mr H. Per kins's instruments. They assembled at the schoolroom on the night there was to be a meeting of Mr Duffy's election committee, and Mr Webster was to hold a meeting the same evening and at the same place, Mr Dunffys meeting being over, and the time for Mr Webster's meeting not having arrived, the dirty piece of false undermining proceed ings commenced. They elected a Chairman -Mr G. F. Christy, and he, in opening the meeting, made some remarks about the management of the punt last winter, and the charges of 8s or 10s extra per load for crossing by means of a boat. As regards the management of the punt, when I rente...

Hle has been tried, found guilty, and sentenced to be forthwith removed from office. We have sat in courts of justice, and listened to many a trial.

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 March 1871

(To the Editor.) Sir-The charge of 12s per ton for crush. ing at the mill on the U. 1'. Flat is causing considerable inconvenience to the miners and injury to the district. In what other part of Victoria is such a charge made as 12s per ton? Curtage and crushing cost on an average 20s per ton. This alone is equal to the avefige yield of gold from some of the best mines in Victoria. Let No. 2 Luckie geta crushing plant. The Mysterious must have a cmushing plar.t if they expect the mine to pay. Something must be done to stop the unjust. demand on the industry of this place, otherwise the effect will ba more disastrous than most persons seem to be aware. Two hundred tons per week, which the mill can crush, will give LI00 per week, a very fine revenue, I am, Sir, &o., MINER. Alexandra, March 7, 1871.

(To this Editor.) Sir-I am one of the men who put down the first shaft in the Working Miners. In addition to the 31l paid-up shares which I received as part payment for my sixteenth interest, I bought ten additional paid-up shares at LA each. This makes my paid-up interest equal to over L200. Now, I have neither a "poor wife" nor "starving chil dlen," thank God, and if I had, I don't think that would influence Mr Willi um Downing much; but I have just got the opinion of one of the best lawyers in Mel bourne, to the effect that the sheriffs sale, even if it were good, which it is not, as against paying sharreholders, does not affect my interest in the slightest. I therefore ask all holders of paid-up scrip to join with me, and take such action as may be necesary, and which I will clear;y show wll be effectual, for the purpose of maintaining our rights in tue Working Miners. Forward name and address, stating nunm ber of shares, to Mr Whitelaw. Chairman of Local Managing Committee. I a...

Correspondence. MR J. P. BAINBRIDGE AND THE PRICE FOR GOLD. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 March 1871

snrrepunnubrnrt. -o MR J. P. I3AINBIIIDGE AND THE PRICE F)hl GOLD. (To the Editor.) Sir-Among several irrelevant and inao curate assertions, Mr Bainbridge says in your issue of the 3rd inst., " It is manifestly important that miners should come here to expend their winnings with the business people of Alexandra, and it is in their in terest that I take up my pen to deny em phaticully that this Bank gives an 'under prico for gold.'" As Mr Bainbridge hits heretofore given the public of Alexandra illustiations of his peculir notions of gram matical construction, I will not hffect to mis understand that by the above sentence he means that it is in the interest of the " business people of Alexandra" that " he takes up his pen," although nearly any little boy at any Common school would tell him that the pronoun which I have italicised re fers to "miners" as its antecedent, and not to "the business pIuple." However, it being a free community, I willingly accord to Alr Bainbridge the tight ...

Naval and ®quralI ?tgts. -4---- We have to notice an addition to our local journals in ".The Mansfield Guardian and North-Eastern Advertiser." We are happy to welcome our young contemporary, and pleased to observe, from its modest little   leading article, that it is already pressed with an "unusual number of advertise ments"-although we confess our inability to understand how advertisements, numerous or otherwise, in the first issue of a paper can be other than unusual. We had regarded the statement as a profound joke or conun drum, and had determined to gratify the propounder thereof with the time-honored admission of perplexed defeat for such cases made and provided-" Give it up"-when our smallest printer's devil startled us with a solution in the following excited lan guage-"'if please, sir, I sees it.
