ABOUT THE STREETS. No III. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 18 August 1868

ABOUT THE STREETS. No. III. -4--- The fight is o'er, the battle lost and won, and our little township, which so lately re sounded with the din of contending party struggles, has again settled down to its every day huImdrum sort of life. The con test, I am happy to say, was carried out in a spirit of, manliness seldom witnessed, and Alexandra has good cause to congratulate herself on the result, for with the ,exception of one or two little' contretemps everything pasted off pleasently, hilarity and good humor being displayed on all sides. I was at the grand reunion on T''hursday.evening, and can safely say I was amused if not instructed. That man should not live at variance with man, will be admitted on all sides, bhut when the hatchet is buried and the calamut of peonce paraded before the admiring gaze of a public audience, I have but little faith in'the genuineness of such pro fessions, and am afraid that e're long we shull have more trouble than enough from this patched up armisti...

HIGINBOTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 18 August 1868

HI GIN 13O T HAM. ------.---- (FnoM ovU own ConuRasroNDeNT.) During the past week there has been a large addition to our population,-the miners arriving at the rate of a dozen a day, attracted doubtless by the reports of the good success of those who have continued steadily at work to the present time. When the new miners set in, in all likelihood fresh ground will be opened. It is the opinion of those experienced in alluvial mining, that the different patches of gold along the bank of the, creek, from time to time, must even tuelly be traced into a continuous run further down the creek. Its bed has never been tried 'on account of the heavy volume of water to contend with, and its expen siveness, but there are some speculative individuals strongly inclined to the venture. _All believe the best gold will ultimately be got in the bed of the creek. TIIB REEFS. No. 1 north, B3alaclava, at' adepthiof-l? .feet, have struck the reef 5 inches thick, and bearing gold magnificently. "Various ...

Original Poetry. A DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 21 August 1868

A DREAM. *-4----- One eve' whilst sunk in deep repose, Strange visions in my mind Irose; bleep, heldlesi of long years oad clime,. With playful fingers rubb'd out time O'er carea and sorrows drew its screen, And led me back to childhotod scenes. On Scotia's wild romantic shore Again in youthful give 1 strayed; Bright forms (now fled) I lvtd of yore, With merry laugh around oew played. Summer's warm term was nearly run, In death lay bound the golden grain; The last rays of the parting sun With lengthened slahrlows strewed the plain;. Unshackled from their close employ, Here walked Lite aged and youthful pair- Dreaming of past and future joy rl D3reathing the balmy evening air. Young hearts, full of inspiring hopoi. Merrily gambolled on the turf.. Scaled the steep clitf and mountain top, Or watched the foaming, surging surf,. That, lashed upon the Ieetling rock,. With hollow moan reccding broke. Ilid by the twilight's deep'ning atado, I wandered fron the scenes of tmirth,. To s?bk a f...
