Local and General News. FOUND DROWNED.— Yesterday afternoon, a man named Harry, (we do not know his surname), lately in the employ of Mr. Wainhold, Butcher, was found drowned in a hole, about ten feet deep, near Sexton's store, at the foot of Argyle Gully, he was last seen alive on Monday. A magisterial inquiry will be held to-day. WANTED A BRIDGE.--Mr. Willoby, P.M., and Mr. Bunnet, were prevented from at- tending to their duties at Redcastle, in con- sequence of being unable to cross the M'Ivor Creek, through the flood or the want of a bridge. TEA MEETING.— We see by advertise- ment, that the lovers of sacred music will be able to gratify their creditable taste on Tuesday, as Mr. Alsop's choir will perform some choice selections after the tea meeting at the United Methodist Free Church on that evening. MINING.— The late heavy rains have been the means of preventing the miners from working, and consequently prevents our being able to report any great amount of activity or success. ...
REDCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 21 August 1863
REDCASTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) There is little of importance to commu- &nbsp; nicate this week ; everything is very quiet, and has been so for weeks past. Most of the miners to whom I have spoken com- plain of the small returns they receive. With the exception of some six or eight &nbsp; claims, the reefs are so poor as scarcely to afford a living for the working. Of the six or eight payable claims, two or three are first-rate, the others are tucker claims. A few tons have been crushed, but no heavy cakes have been procured. A party of five in Curly-dog Gully, about seven months ago formed themselves into a Company, and commenced sinking a shaft which they -. knew was required to be nearly 200 feet deep ; they have struck the stone and crushed three tons, which yielded some where about six ounces of gold. They ex- pect to have another crushing in about a fortnight, and hope to get ten tons of stone per month. One or two of the reefs that have lain idle for ...
COSTERFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 21 August 1863
COSTERFIELD. (From our own Correspondent.) The faith some persons have in Coster- field and the surrounding district, may be gleaned from the fact, that great improve- ments ar being made in the building line at Costerfield, and many more improve- ments are in contemplation, which will change the appearence of the place from a short lived calico township, to one of a far more substantial nature. There is abun- dant evidence of the increasing prosperity of the place, and that those who ventured to predict that prosperity some two years since were not over sanguine. Its progress has been slow in consequence of the pro- prietors of the mines not being disposed to make any move towards improvements till they considered themselves perfectly war- ranted in doing so, their determination having been to realise from their mines, the capital necessary for the purchase of machinery, &c., before making the pur- chases, On Friday last, 14th August, Messrs. Coster, Field, & Co., o...

To the Editor of the Melvor Times. Smr,-It was with no ordinary feeling of surprise that I found the audience on on Conundrum night, taking Mr. Adamson to task for his pronunciation of the word "Rendezvous," for it ought to be pro nounced asif-it were spelled Rondayvoo, and Mr. Adamson was quite right in his pronunciation. It is the invariable rule with polished society nowadays, in making use of foreign words, to pronounce them according to the usage of the language from which such words are borrowed. Now, I do not approve of interlarding any dis course or writing with them, when our own language is so copious, unless, indeed, their meaning is generally understood ; but if employed, the pronunciation of them ought not to be mangled, for we have no right to take any unwarrantable liberties with the property of others. What would we think of Frenchmen retaliating on us what we are constantly inflicting on them, in regard to pronunciation? We are always poking fun at them for their aw...

(To the Editor of the fMclvor Times.) Sm,-The Yankees must, I calculate, be a very decent people; for it is only in their free and enlightened country, that we over hear of the spirits of long-departed friends and relations condescending to ren der any assistance to suffering humanity-. Have you any bodily ailing, there is no necessity in that favoured land, to consult a witch, as in days of yore, for a remedy; you have only to call in the assistance of a Medium, who, by-tlhe-bye, scorns any douceur for his pains, and through his invoking your grandfather's ghost, the ghost puts in a speedy appearance, and by means of certain rappings, suitable replies are instantly conveyed to anxious en quirers. Barnum searched the whole world for natural curiosities; but being unable at last to satisfy the ardent longing of his countrymen for something fresh, and being moreover obliged, in self-defence, to produce some startling sensation, lest he should be lowered a peg in the estimation of his ...
