POLICE COURT, MELBOURNE. Friday, May 5th. (Before Mr Sturt, P. M.) COSTER V. RAPHAEL. Defendant appeared to answer a summons on oath by plaintiff, charging him with fraud as a bailee in dealing with a promis- sory note for £164 19s. 6d. Mr W. V. Smith appeared for the defence. At the request of Mr Coster, all wit- nesses were ordered out of Court. Frederick Coster, sworn, stated that he was a solicitor practising at Alexandra. In November last received certain promissory notes, amounting in all to L1200 or L1300, given to him by persons interested in the Working Miners' claim, Godfrey's Creek, to secure the amount of a number of verdicts and costs that had been obtained. Two of these promissory notes formed the subject of the present prosecution. They were dated 28th October, 1870, for L104 19s 6d each. One was payable at four months, the other at six months. These two notes represented costs in the actions—made up by L57, wit- nesses expenses, L144 ordered to witness (Coster). L127...

nrrrmpauEhn re. ---C- (To the Editor.) Sir-Will you allow me a smali space in the Times to ofifer a few words in explana tion of the late prosecutions which have been instituted against me with such promp titude and virulence for, breaches of the Publicans' Act. I deem it unnecessary to refer to the fact. that my license was gran ted at the end of last year. It has been turned to the best account by being hurled as evidence against me by insidious enemies on every occasion. My premises were not completed, nor in a fit state to enable me to commence business as a publican until the beginning of December, owing to the scart city of tradesmen and building materials at thu time, and as I amn accused of not paying six months' license for the privilege' of snall ing liquor forfabout three w,!ek., I pl ad guilty, But of my saubsenent conduct I am by no means ashamed. I vwent to Alex andra at the very conumencemeat of the - present. year on no other business than to take the necessary steps...

Local and General News. As the case of Coster v Raphael, heard before the Melbourne Police Court on Fri- day last, has created much interest and indignation in Alexandra, we give a pretty full report of the proceedings in another column. The fact that £32 was subscribed by the residents in Alexandra to pay Mr Raphael's expenses to Melbourne—the gene- ral rejoicing that no charge had been proved against our respected townsman—must con- vince even Mr Coster that he has acted very foolishly in this matter. Mr Hames, who acted as Treasurer on account of the money subscribed for Mr Raphael, has received the following letter of acknowledgement from that gentleman :— "Alexandra, 8th May, 1871. " Dear Sir—Your letter of the 7th inst. has quite taken me by surprise, and in ac- cepting the handsome present alluded to therein, I can hardly find words sufficient to express my heartfelt thanks to the many kind friends, I am happy to say I possess, for their sympathy with me on this occasion, and...

lrtrf jIlluRllftt. -4-- (To the Editor.) Sir-Will iyou kindly give (insertion to the following information upon certain mat ters connected with the Yea Common Sohool. The history of the old building is but little known, and some misunderstand ing exists about its recent ownership, thereby, it appears, preventing some from lending a hand towards the erection of a new schoolhouse. The old house was pur chased about ten years ago. Funds suffi cient for the purchase could not be raised by subscription. Seven persons in Yea and the neighbourhood volunteered to advance L10 each, to be returned whenever the house should be sold. This was agreed to, and the deed of conveyance held in their joint names as security, The house has been used ever since as a school. It is now too small, and ts the house was showing evident symptoms of distress, it was resolved to sell the property. This has been done. Two of the LO1 investors have appropriated their full share, a third was satisfied with LS 10s,...

rPInrIIBlIED .VERY SRIDAY * Verits I' Iaclt Orniala." FRIDAY, MAY, 10, 1871. ,cra1 and Ognieral Tdwa. The first County Court and Court of Mines in Alexandra was held on Wednes day last before His Honor Judge Hackett. In the County Court there were 37 cases in the cause list, but very few of them came to trial, most of them being settled :out of Court. The appeal eases wore of consider able interest, and from the heavy costs given in each case, it may be inferred that the claims in dispute are of considerable value. There were many strangers from Melbourne attending these Courts, and with the assistance of Burton's Circus, the town of Alexandraahas had quite an eventful week. On what principle the Police Reward Fund is distributed we donr't profess to know. Presuming that merit is the stand ard, then we have a grievance. A few weeks 'ago this district was thrown into a state of consternation by the fact that two bushrangers had made their appearance on the Yarra track, and stuck up s...

(To the Editor.) Sir-In your Nlast issue I noticed a para graph to the effect that some storekeeper had prevented the sale of an additional crushing machine for Alexandra by stating that it was not required, and thereby in Jured-not only the parties making the bar gain, but the district genorally. Now, Sir, as I am a storekeeper who may be suspon tpd of having done all this, I bog that you wUl clear myself and others who may be equaly innocent by stating the name of the person 3?tP refer to. I agree with you in thinking tLat there is a good opening for another orushb'bg plant hero. The crushings from No. 2 add the Mysterious average about L50 per weelk This is equal to L2500 per annum, without ,.'cluding other claims, whioh, with the presena prospects, may be calculated for the future L2t as much more, in all. L6000 per annum. I'f this is not a good return for two man,!ines I don't know what Is. Ten to twenty s;Jllings per ton for crushing is absurd, and if the store'- epcr you refe...
