Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 1 September 1868

't'aIi and *.t!lerld Wletu. It is a matter of surprise that although Alehxndra is surrounded with abundance of land well adapted for vegetable gardens, yet very little has been done in the way of lencing in and cultivating the soil. Vege tables of all kinds are scarce and dear, and were it not for the occasional visit of a few Chinamen who bring, vegetables a distamco of thirty miles, it would be anlmost im ossible to get anything like an adequate supply at any price. Now is the timo for sowing and planting, and those who devote a few weeks to gardening will liud it pay quite as well as hunting about for reefs. The one is a certainty of making a comfortable living, and need not interfere materially with other pur suits ; and on the principle that it is well to have two strings to one's bow, we would re commncud ia little more gardening. The IBritannia, No. 3, crushed during the past week 10 tons of quartz, which yielded 47 nz, ntl 16 tons mullock 8 oz 10 dwt 12 .;r. The 16 tons mull...

(To the Editor of 7he Alexandra Times.) Ssn,-On Friday last I received the enclosed' advertiseotent, out out of your journal, with a, printed circular to the effect that the advertisement would he inserted in the Jamieson Chronicle for about half of your charge. I find that-most of our business men have received a similar communication. Now, Sir, I am fully alive to the advantages of advertising. both to. the place and individuals who, advertise, but what advantage would it be to us hero to advertise in the tcelong papers, the " Fiji Islantds Gazette," the "linhuectoo Christian FIh rld,'" or the Jamieson Ckronicle. Any person may cer tainly do so, Ifr beyomd tile small sum of motey foolishly spent, no harm wo,uld be done. But. Mr Editor, there is a little bit of duduery in this cheap .advertising at Jamiesun. If we can to induced to advertise, why not continue tile Crunty Court, tile, Court of Atines, and the Court of General Sessions at Jamiieon. That ii the little game. Jamieson i...

And it. came to tress in trl eighth month, on the fourth day the.elot, as I was in mine own house a dee1p sleep fell upon me. And, behold, I was transported into a fair land, verily a land flowing with milk rnd honey, where the sun shone alwhays fair, and where bread was in abundance. The forest was still in all. its primeval glory, the bleating of lambs and lowing of cattle making de lightful music in the solitude. And it came to pass while I yet gazed upon the bheuteous scene, the forest was suddenly cleared away by the hands of busy men in search of hidden treasures. Nsither was their labor in vain, for the earth yielded abundance of precious metal and greatly did the people rijoice ; the fame also of their riches and the Lreatness thereof was noised abroad. Thither flocked the merchants, the dealers in ...

CONCERT AT SPRING CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 4 September 1868

CUNCEIL' AT SPRItNG CREEK. A concert in aid of the buildling fund of the hospital was given at Spring Crock ?ast Tuesday evening. The attendance was not so numerous as was anticipated, but this may be accounted for in some moeanro by the fact that iunny persons residing in Alexandra and elsewhere, nlthlogh having tickets did not attend. However, those who were pro sent seemed thoroughly to enjoy themselves. Mr Palmateer, in taking the chair, remarked that the object they had in view wt's a good one. Although but a small community the inhabitants of Spring Creek had felt it a duty. to contribute their mite towards the establishment of an hospital in the district. All buildings, large or small, had to be built up of many stones, and if they could only have one in the building they would be satisfied. As all admitted the desirability of having an hospital, he would not detain them longer, but proceed at once to business. The programme, which in itself was rather long, was lengthened ou...
