Correspondence. (To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 13 August 1868

Correspondence. +   (To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) SIR,- It may be interesting to some of your readers to know that the piebald horse, of which such honorable mention was made by Mr Coster during his eloquent speech in my behalf at the Alexandra Police Court, had on his back, when he fell into the Goul burn, some (to me) very valuable property- comprising blankets, a frying pan, gridiron, billy and two pannicans; also a full report of the proceedings of the Wood's Point Municipality - extending over a period of two years. Only fancy the brilliant orations of our eminent and esteemed Wood's Point   Town Councillors becoming food for the fishes! Passing through the ungodly guts!   - I mean delicate internal organisation - of a Murray cod! I most sincerely hope the     wretched fate of those literary curiosities may act as a warning to the members of your future Road Board, showing those gentlemen the vanity and ...

MAINDAMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 13 August 1868

MA I ND AM PL E. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Since writing my last report, mining matters have taken a completely new turn for the better. I always thought there were good reefs about Maindample if they had been properly worked, and the results of last week's crushlings fully bear out that theory. The Reliance Reef from 4 tons gave a yield of 2 oz. 1? dwt. Lone Star Reef.-Six tons yielded 2 oz. 44 dwt. The Walter Montgomery from 2 tons had 18 oz. 4 dwt. Prince of Wales obtained 19 oz. 18 dwt. from 7 tons of stone, Thle Empress claim -at present in dispute, having been jumped - looks well. The jumpers had a crushing of 6. tons, which yielded   23 oz. 19 dwt. The whole quantity crushed from all the claims was 25 tons, giving an average-yield of 2 oz. 13 dwt. per ton. A vast increase on recent averages. I am confident several other claims will in the course of a few months show good results, the men employed being quite sure of the indications. In the several claims on t...

VINING'S HOTEL. A meeting of electors was held at Vining's Hotel on Friday night last (Mr Briggs In the chair), when Messrs Cooper and Cos ter delivered addresses on road board mat ters. Tile candinates were" well received, and all went well until Mr D. Creed got up to address the meeting. Mr Bob Hodgson, generally known as " Bob the Blacksmith," also attempted to address a few words to those assembled, and it is probable he dlid give expression to some very aproprioprate re marks. These, however, never reached the ears of the reporter, as there arose a perfect h:ael of sounds, consisting of the crowing , f cocks, howling of dogs. grunting of pigs, billy go.its catcrwuuiua, railway whistles, 'donnkv rartyint, loud laughterijokes as sad ia Gtani-s'reet (it nut bro.idir).

Two very gallant sons of Erin, being just dis charged from service. were rejoicing over the event with a "wee taste of the cratur," when one who felt all the glory of his noble race, suddenly raised his pot above his hcead, and said, "Arram, Mike, here's to the gallant ould 69th-the last in the field and the lirst to leave it." " Tut, tuo, man.' said Mike," ye don't minane that. " You mane," and he raised his glass high above his head, and looked lovingly at it, " IHrc's to the gallant 69th, equal to none i" and so they drank.

Origial Unetry. SAD THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 18 August 1868

Oariginal ' aefln. BAD TIIOUG.HTS. Sad thoughts are with me, Flitting through my brain, Calling up old memories In an endless chain. hovering shadows From the vanished past,, Of forms and bright scenes All too bright to last. Cold, chilling, spectres, With still, dreary, stare, Throng in the future And loom in the air, The joyous visions, And friends are all flown- r'm sad, I am lunoly. And grief bows me down, Whore is the love Where the charm of my life ? That nerved my bad hears For the world's dreary strife, It, and the loving, Beyond the sad wave, Are buried together In one hopeless grave, Yes, cold is that love Like the friends of youth's d s,. Assailed by neglect, And perjury base, There are none now to love?, None to cheer my sad heart s U God, in Thy mercy, Pray, lot me depart, .

There is a remarkable good specimen in Mr Pixon's window, near the office of this journal. The stone is brown sandstone with a small seam of quartz and gold about. half an inch thick on the face, and shows more gold: than quartz. This stone was taken firom Nos. 1 and 2, North City of Melbourne Reef, Ghin Ghin. The reef is small, but gives excellent prospects. It is expected at a further depth of 15 or 20 feet the same reof will be struck that is being worked in the prospecting claim. The shaft is down about 05 foot. In the Providence Pr(ospecting Claim, the original shareholders have disposed of all their interests to man of capital who intend carrying on the work with vigor, and a machine will shortly be on the ground. lMr Zochio, we understand, is the principal shareholder.
