(To the Editor of the McIvor Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 28 August 1863
(To the Editor of the Mclvor Times.) Sm,-Your contemporary the News has been the victim of a phantasmagoric vision, the result of a violent attack of jaundice; permit me through your columns to dispel the illusion, it may possibly speed the restoration of his distempered imagination to health. Yours obliged, W. H. ALSOP. To the Editor of the M'Ivor News. Sm,-Your 1 "Wesleyan friends" will not have thg opportunity of purchasing nor do I suspect them of a desire to possess - the bell "attached to the United Methodist Free Church ;" it is not at all probable that it will be in the market, con sequently, your proffered liberality to facilitate the transfer which you suggest in your,last week's issue, is unfortunately lost to them. It is, however, a pity that so spontaneous a gush of charitable feeling should be checked, I therefore take the liberty of commending to your notice a channel into which it may flow ad infinitum, viz,-tho fund of the contemplated Bazaar in con nection with the...

IISCELLANEOUS INTELLIGENCE. THE "GREAT SEA.SERPENT" has again turned up, and appears to be looking after the African mail steamers. A letter received from one of the officers of the Athenian, states " that all doubts may now be set at rest about the Great Sea-serpent.'' "On the 6th May," says the writer, "the Athenian, on the pasage from Teneriffe to Bathurst, fell in with one. At about 7 a.m. John Chappel, quarter-master, at the wheel, saw something floating towards the ship.: He called the attention of the Rev. Mr. Smith and another passenger (who was on the deck at the time) to it On nearing the steamer it was discovered to be a hugh snake, about 100 feet long, of a dark brodn color, head and tail out of water, the body slightly under. On its head was something like a mane or sea weed, and the body was about the size of our mainmast. Lord Russell has directed DMr, Eliot, our Chargd d'Affairs at Rio Janerio, to demanid his passports and retire from Brazil. " It is notorious,' says...

DEATH OF JAMES ROUTLEDGE, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 28 August 1863
DEATH OF JAMES ROUTLEDGE, EsQ. It is with no ordinary feeling of regret that we record the death of our respected townsman, James Routledge, Esq., which took place at lie residence, on Friday evening, 21st inst. We should but ill per orm our duty if we neglected the present opportunity of offering this slight tribute of respect to the memory of one, who both by example and precept, endeavoured to prove the truth of the maxim, that " honesty is the best policy," and add our tes'imony to the fact that he succeeded to perfection. By the death of Mr. Routledge, the dis trict has sustained a severe loss, which must not be estimated by the mere fact that fate has deprived us of the chance of ever again benefitting by the clear understanding, and splendid business talents, which were combined with almost every human virtue in the character of our late friend. It is true that he will no more add weight and dignity to our system of Local Government, by again sitting in the Council Chamber, o...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 28 August 1863
IT is with considerable reluctance that we notice the present position of the Collector to the Hospital, but we should very im perfectly fulfil our duty to the public if we did not do so. A too sensitive feeling of delicacy has often been the cause of injustice and disaster, and we consider that further forbearance on our part would amount to a crime; we are compelled as it were, to offer an apology for performing a duty, because it involves the necessity of once more attacking our unprincipled contempo rary, whose affairs are so mixed up with those of the Collector to the Hospital, that it appears doubtful if they will ever be satis factorily separated. . At the time of the appointment of the Collector, an agreement was entered into with him, that he should receive a per centage upon all monies collected by him, and that he should make a return of the names of the subscribers and the amount of each donation, and forward to the Treasurer the monies collected as often as possible, bu...
Mining Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 28 August 1863
The wet weather exercised a very de preciating influence on the mining opera tions. The puddlers and alluvial miners have suffered much by loss of time, and although we hear no great outcry, some families have felt the effects of the un usual wet season very severely. We have however heard of an old-fashioned incident in the shape of an ounce to the tub, but we are not at liberty to say who was for tunate enough to get a piece of ground of that sort. Potter & Co. have crushed sixteen tons from the Phmnix, which turned out fifty ounces. This is certainly a relief to the general prospect, it was the result of three weeks' work for four men. We have heard of a new discovery about twelve miles from Heathcote, of a )ode of antimony, which is said to he auriferous, and likely to turn out well; the ground is marked out for some dis tance, but we shall be able to speak with more certainty as to the nature of the dis covery next week.

He says that things are not looking very bright, and great numbers are not making more than enough to keep them in existence. He says that people from the Shotover and the Dunstan say that times are worse there than at Waitahuna, which is needless. We should like to publish Mr. Horn's letter, but as we have not his sanction we cannot do so, but any of his friends can ascertain the particu lars of his communications from Mr. Thomas.
