Correspondence. To the Editor of the Alexandra Times. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 9 June 1868

(nrrrspunnutKr. ---+- 'o thle Editor of the Alexandra irmes. SiR,-Will you permit me to make use of your columns to represent a grievance, which is one of many arising from the want of proper legislation for our gold fields. The. leusinF system (which if carried ou. in it inte-nr-ty by the Govertnent and the lessees, would, without doubt., be a great advantage in a district like this, where the Mining Board has so signally fliled to frame even intelligable bye-laws) is at present productive of much injury to mining on account of the extreme laxity with which the labor cove nants are being fulfilled. Having made carlt Tul enquiry around this district for some months past, and having also visited the office of the Mining Registrar in order to be in a position to state facts, I find that in the immediate neighborhood of Alexandra there are about 300 acres of auriferous land under lease, which area represents about 600 single mens' claims. If the labor covenantg on all the leases compri...

DONOVAN'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 12 June 1868

DONOVAN'S CREEK. -4-f- (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) June 10th. Mr Hogarth's machine, erected for the Star and Bower prospecting claim, will be ready in the course often days. The ma chine is a twelve-horse power portable engine, driven by steam, and having ten head of stampprs. The terrms foir crushing daring the first six monnths are £1 per ton; and 15s. afterwards. The slope, and level tramways are now hbeing laid down and will be com pleted this week-also the tramways into the tunnels. There nra now about fifty tons of stone at the Star tunnel and forty tons at the Bower tunnel. The Star reef is about 5ft. thick ; the B.,wer. ahout.2ft. The Star reef was f: und on the surfice at the side of the spur. The.t mnel has been driven 100ft.' along the reP', which wvries in thickness from one fnno to five feet.

MAINDAMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 12 June 1868

M A I N D A MPL E. -4-t- (FPROi oun oWN CORn?ESPONDENT.) Mining and, consequently, all other mat ters, have been very dull here for some time back. This is owing to several causes. The place, in the first instance, was overdone by too many rushing to it, and putting up expensive buildings without consideration. ''The reefs have not turned out so well as was anticipated from first appearances. The stamper boxes have not given the results that: were expected, by a long way. I am, notwithstanding, fully convinced that the reefs of Maindample will yet give pay. able results; most of them have been found on the surface, and they have only been followed down 10 to 00 feet. They have not yet been. fully tested. At Russell and Taylor's machine there is an occasional crushing. These crushings run from 2dwt. to 3ozs. to the ton. The charge for crush ing is very moderate-only 8s. per ton. At present there are 50 tons of stone being carted from Bon's claim to the machine the result of the crush...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Alexandra Times. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 12 June 1868

nlrrrlpnnBielre. 7o the Editor of the Alexandra Times. Stn,-Common sense is a commodity highly prized by all who are happily pous sessed of it, and of all men, newspaper pro prietors should have at least a small modicum of that estimable gift. But it appeals to me, and I think my opinion will be acquisced in by most men of ordinary ability, that the proposed establishment of the Mansfield Courier in our midst at this time, shows a lamentable want of sense on the part of the proprietary. It is evident to any man who knows the district, that there is room, and an absolute necessity for one newspaper at Alexandra, but it is equally clear that any other paper starting now must of necessity play second fiddle to its own loss, and to the injury of the journal already established, and worst of all, the duet will most probably introduce .intolerable. discord.__where.ll has hitherto been, harmony. The people of Alexandra have enjoyed the reputation of being as peaceable, agreeable, social, c...

T'PAT the bump of hoenevolence is strongly developed in the inhabitints of this and the surrounding districts is clenrly proved by a reference to the large number of contributions to the Kilm,,re Hospital, which appears in another column of this paper. In the absence of an hospital of our own, it is only proper that the people of Alexandra should contribute liberally to the one at Kilmore. It must, however, be obvious that such accidents as broken legs, severe and dangerous sickness, cannot be dealt with so successfully at a dist,ance of fifty miles as in the more immediate neighborhood. Cases have occurred, and are ever liable to occur again, in which it worldt be certain death to remove the patient such a distance, especially in winter, when the roads are so bad that it is both difficult and dangerous for ai person of sound constitution and in good health to travel between Ale?andra and Ki...
