POETRY AND SONG. SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 28 August 1868

POETRY AND SONG. SCOTLAND. --- That Scotland has long stood preeminent for her songs will, I have no doubt, be admitted by all who are in the slightest de gree conversant with the subject. Some of these though rather quaint are still dear to every son of Scotia, and there are few, very few who cannot appreciate their now wild now plaintive strains. Where can be found a truer or more thrilling picture of domestic trouble than that so strikingly portrayed in the simple words of the ballad " Auld Robin Grey." There the lover goes to sea with the manly intention of turning his"croun" into a "pund," looking forward,; no doubt, to the happy day when he should return to claim his blushing bride. But as the old adage has it, " troubles seldom come alone," and so it proved to be the case in this instance. for while she is still mourning the loss of her lovier, her father breaks his arm, and her mother, through sickness, is compelled to forego her usual avocation of spinning. But to crown all...

WPUBLISrIED EVERY TUESD?AY AND FRIDAY MOR.NINGS " Viri?II VInclt Omnlit." FRIDAY, AUGUST 28, 1868. OURSELVES. Most persons observe the day on which they were ushered into the world. Presents from sisters or brothers, or sorncthing extra for dinner, in the shapte of a pudding or dessert, usually mark such events amongst those who live under the same roof in peace andl harmony. Such mile posts along life's journey afford material for useful reflection. Boys wish that they were men, and freed from the drudgery of school. Men think of misspent days, and often say " I would T were a boy again." Girls with pinafores sigh for the time when they can wear a long train and chignon. Whilst many ladies of a certain age would gladly exchange these ornamenis for the short dress, petticoats. and drawers of that most lovely and interest ing of all human beings-the beautiful girl of twelve years of age. You, reader, per hatls begin to wonder what is all this about ? That is the very question we are ...

Walter Montgomery crushed 2 tons, giv ing the handsome yield of 10 on 17 dwt The reason why the quantity crushed is so small is that the tributers time is up, and the claim now passes into the hands of the share holders, who put on six men to work on Monday last.

Homeward Bound washed up yesterday, giving 308 oz retorted gold, from 108 tons of stuff-55 of quartz 53 mullock. This gives about 100 oz less than was expected. A dividend of 4s per share was declared last night by the directors. The Ajax, from 12 tons washed up this week, obtained 248 oz 16 dwt retorted gold. This is a grand result, and will give a splen did dividend. No. 10 North Luckie.-The contract for the sinking of the new shaft in this claim will be completed within a fortnight. The contract was "for 150ft. It is now down 120ft., lined with sawn slabs from the top, and it is altogether a piece of excellent work manship. There is a little water in the shaft-nothing, however, to be troublesome. The reef was worked in an adjoining shaft to within 30ft. As soon as the present con tract is finished it is intended to drive for the plain where the reef was last worked which is known to be very rich.

uorre?uolelrre. (To the Editor of the Alc.en.rml Times.) Stn,-The idea occurs to me, that inr stead of the " hook and ladder" method to, stay the progress of fire, .a more efficient plan would be to attach.a hose to one of the pumps of the British Hero machine; and bring sufficient water in full play at once on the burning promises. It would be more advisable still to, combine- the use of both means so as to check the rapid progress of destruction, whichb, no one who has seen the raging element at work in- Wood's Point, can doubt would ensue-fi'om a fire in one of our central houses. Let there be in the mnno -of humanity,- i-t.rtr---brigad?e--: immediately established, for as certain ,.as there is an insurance agency in Alexandra; so sure shall there be fire, and it is well to be prepared to meet such a dreaded. con tingency.

Business is rather dull just at present in consequence of an exodus of 'many of the alluvial miners to a smnall place called iligin botham, but better known as the Newv Chum Creek, about eighteen milei from here. It is not generally known that so large a quantity of gold has been obtained here for the past twelve months. From enquiries made, bfind that over 50,000 or ofgola have been actually sold on Ghin Ghin, saying nothing of w but has been 'disposed of pri vately, and I know several parties who have taken large quantities to Melbourne and Alexandra. This has been the sole produce of one gully, and it will be something ex traordinary if there is no more to be found. The district for miles round has every ap pearance of being auriferoas. Ever since the opening of this field it has been laboring under disadvantages, which have prevented it from boing mIuore proslpcted. .First, was the dispute about the prospecting claim causing a gre...

The large concert hall was well filled, there being about 40 couple present. The room had a gay and animated appearance with so many well-oressed persons present, all of whorn seemed bent on being amused and entertained.

The doctor considered everybody wrong. The doctor was the only man that was honest (?)

(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) Sn,-I don't think it matters much whether the shares advertised by the Alex andra Alluvial Prospecting Company are disposed of, for, notwithstanding the business qualities of the gentlemen whose names appedr as the provisional directors, I em phatically assert that any attempt to carry out the prospecting must necessarily prove not only a tedious undertaking but at last, to my mind, a comparative failure. I shall not, Sir, occupy your valuable space by discus sing the many objections I might otherwise urge in order to corroborate this assertion the prin'cipal being the want of funds con sequent upon the fewness of shares-rather permit me to throw out one or two sugges-. tions, trusting they will not be treated by the proprietors as unworthy of notice. In stead of 52 shares at T20 per share I pro surne it would be better to put in the market 500 at L5 each-lOs to be the minimum paid on every suare when issued, the re maining L4 10s might be mad...
