When the minutes of previous meeting were beingroad, _Mr Webster wished to make it running commentary on each subject. lie would despise himself if he were to give his vote in accordance with instructions, what ever that reverend individual, the inmes might say.

(To the Editor of the Alexandlra Times.) Sir,-I understand that some gentlemen con nected with the Common School Committee have obr some time past contemptllted the erection of a school house suitable to the re quirements of this rising townshi;º, but have become alarmed at the expense likely to be incurred The miserable hovel now used is not only unfit for the purposes of education ,but is positively a disgrace to the township Numerous families are every day settling down and making this place their homes. The various" interests from which Alexandra, as a centre of commerce and population, drawseits support, are assuming a character of stability, permanency, and increased im portance, and the people are perhaps as well to do as any community in Victoria. Why then do those who, should take an active part in ,this matter hesitate to step out boldly and test the feeling of'the people on the subject.

(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) A HARD CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 29 September 1868
(To the ditor of the Alcxcantlra 'Times;) A IIAISD CASE. Sin,-After an acquaintance of mine helping to drive a tunnel a distance of over eighty feet he is told that his paying-in shareholders decline to back him any longer. He being without moans would be unable to carry on ; but fortunately there are some enterprising men left, and Mr Peter Erskine kindly came forward and told him that he might continue. Now MIr Erskino is one of the largest shareholders, andi could very well do without any more interest, and I am happy to state that rather than see a fellcw minor in such a fix he has lent him a helping hand. Some of our great speculators who were out here say that it is only prospecting. Admitting it to be so, surely about 2?.. per week would eot be such a great deal out of their pockets. Trusting that you will insert this in your Journal A MINa EI. [We cannot see the harkl.hip of this case. if a paying-in.sharohohlur does not believe in the clainm, why should he continue to pay ?...

I have just read in your paper, headed " About, the Streets," one of the most bitter and vindicative articles j have read for a long time. It could only come from one about the streets. Itis easily seeing why he writes so bitterly. He ccr tainly has not got what he wanted Hlie is only one and therefore can only speake for himself.. H'e is not the electors nor'ratW payers but one who' has not got: the" gain that he expected therefore comes down, with= vengeance on his opposer. Why does he come in my way. The money is not his own, and now that he won't let me have as mach as I want I certait ly shall, not spare him. I. will give the Times: something to' fill up its empty space. If the people will only r ad it he might fihd that the people ot Alexandra are not going too join his greedy and vindicative spirit. lie will find-- ...
