- - The Eldon punt never seems to prosper, or even float on the water, unless in Mr Knowles's care. On the sunny side the hlanks shrunk to such an extent as to cause her to sinlk a few days ago. Captain Solomoon, well,known in the early days of Wood's Point, and connected with old as sociations of that plnce, was fortunately in Alexandra on Monday last, and his nauti cal experience was broughtfinto use to raise the punt fhom the bed of the river, which he succeeded in doiing in a few hours. The punt is therefore tafloat again. Mr Peterkin, we think, was rather sharply treated for try ing to get a reasonablo 'price for the linhut when it was put up at public auction. lind Mlr Peterklin not bid, we have every reason to believo it would have been sold for about L25, and thus. about L200 of ho shire funds absolutely thrown away. No doubt his ob. ject in purchasing for L75 was to save the shire from an apparent heavy loss; no one can believe that lie intended to make a pri vate speculati...

Correspondence. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 31 March 1871

Correspondence. (To the Editor.) Sir-In the account of the complimentary banquet to Dr Rowe at Mansfield, which ap peared in last week's issue of your paper, I perceive the following statements :--"A few of the Committee (three) suggested, at a meeting of their body, that all the repre sentatives of the Press in Mansfield should be presented with free tickets, and invited to attend. This however, was overruled by the majority, and it was finally decided only to invite the proprietor of the Mansfield Guardian, and to omit the representatives of the Independent and Alexandra Times. It was further proposed that the correspon dent of the Independent should have the doors closed on him. That gentleman ac cordingly found some difficulty in getting a ticket to purchase, and it was only after having kindly volunteered to publish the names of those gentlemen of the Committee who might be pleased to persist in refusing to sell him an admission card, that he was graciously permitted to exchang...

Coster President and Councillors Peterkin, Smith, Cronin, Kelly, O'Callaghan and Perkins.       The minutes of former meeting were read and confirmed. Councillor Peterkin wished to know by what authority the Executive had been advised to proclaim certain portions of the shire as a country district, where £10   licenses might be issued. There was no resolution of the Council to the effect set forth in the Gazette. The President stated, in explanation, that   he was under the impression that the Council wished the resolutation on the subject brought   before a previous meeting carried, and had written to that effect. He had made a           mistake in doing secretary work whilst a   change was being made of that officer. Councillor Smith objected to Mr. Fred. Coster i...
