MR GRIMES ON KISSING. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 24 March 1871

"MI GRIMES ON KISSING. - -0 Did you over in your travels come across a kiss ing family ? Pray, do not misunderstand me-the nforesnld osrulatory performance I approve of un der certain circumstances. A kiss is often a very pleasant thing, but a thing that to my mind is good in season, but not out of beason. I ask again, have you over met a fmily the members and connections of which kiss upon every occasion, and upon all occasions ? Who "dear" each othrr In a marvel. lously sweet way constantly, and put you, if you happen to ho an unsophisticated person, almost out of countenance, that is, when you do not beat a hasty retreat to get ease to your feelings ? The kissing that I have seen (I may as well confess it) of the female per'uaslon in several families that I have known is semethin: to remember not very pleasantly. I never liked, and I'm sure I never shall like those kissing people I There must he hollowness in a great many of those apparently affectionate salutes, and hypocrisy in...

CRICKET MATCH. HIGINBOTHAM V. ALEXANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 24 March 1871

CIUICKE'T' MAT'CH. IIIGiNIIOTHIAM V. ALEXANDRA. -4--·- (By " One of Them.") This match was played at Yea on Mon day last. I don't know how we (the Alex andra Eleven) all got down, but we found ourselves, with one exception, on the ground at the appointed time. I believe our Vice led the way on Saturday, the first batch following on Sunday, and the next on Moe. day morning; the President stopping till the last moment to see that none lagged be hind. Tl'he deficiency in our team was sup plied by Mr A. IIamea, who proved himself no mull' at the bat, nlthough he hadn't pilayed, he said, for 40 years. Luck at the commencement was in our favor, for we won the toss, and put the Iliginbotliam men in, thinking to put themis out about as easily. No such luck, however. Mr G.

'lThe celebrated fraud conspiracy case con.. nected with the Working Miners' Gold Mining Company Godfrey's Creek, has at last been disposed of. As a full report of tho evidence given in our local court ap peered in our columns some months back, and the gnetrahlty of our readers being pretty well acquainted aithl the facts of the case, we need not now repeat the evidence given in the Supreme Court. A pretty full and correct report of the trial appeared in the Argus of Saturday last. Although we believe that substantial justice has been awarded by the. verdict of "Not Guilty," mill we are under the impression that the Chief Justice did not realise the facts of the case, and the very complimentary manner in which lie alluded to the sales nod resales of the propolty from Bamber .to Pearce, ard Pearco to Bamber, must have eNtoninhod the accused parties more than those who heard the evidence.

Her breath was like the sweet mignon (I could'nt squeeze in the " -etto." This vision of beauty first to see, To rme it did hefal At the St. Patricians' annual spree, Their second supper and ball.
