(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 6 October 1868

(To the Editor of the Alexandra 7Cmea.) Sin,-Tho Popular Entertain'mont Com mittee seem to be practising how not to do it. The concert which was to have taken place to-morrow evening has'been indefinitely postponed, no doubt for some good and wise purpose, but I being the mater/amidias, and relying upon the statements which were published from time to time, had made all necessary arrangements for a little party being present, must feel the disappointment doubly. Some of my neighbors had intimated their intention of joining us, but now, until surh time s theiy have the fact authoritatively announced by advertisement or otherwise they will not venture to put on their "Sun. day braws," for you must know that to dlis appoint a lady who has once set her heart upon a thiug, is worse than compelling a battalion of soldiers to retire from an en gagement. Trusting you will use your best endeavors to (as my better half would say) wake up the committee, I remain, yours most respectfully, BELLA...

(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 6 October 1868

(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) S it,-In my periodical rambles I have for the third time visited your township, and I speak confidently when I say that Alexandra is one of the most hopeful towns in the colony. But notwithstanding its golden formation I must complain of one thing that struck me forcibly, namely the fact that with every prospect of prosperity around, theo people were but indifferently housed. I no sooner mrdle this observation to some of the inhabitants than the matter was satisfactorily explained. That being shut ouout hom Mel bourne and all other public places by bad roads, building materials were scarce and very expensive. But now that you htiavu it Road Board to look after your affairs there is some hope of "having this evil removed if the members will only bear in mind the good old maxim; "To- negleoctnot their workc-by running into persondl abuse." It appears strange to me that your good peoule know nothing of any other mode of access to Mel bourne but b...

ABOUT THE STREETS. No. IX. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 6 October 1868

ABOUT TIBE STREETS. No. IX. Were you at the meeting on Saturday night? You were not. Well I am glad of it for I know you would have been shocked at the language there used. How are the mighty fallen. Mourn ye wretched in habitants of Morton and Thornton, your fine gold has become dross, yea, verily the polished steel of truth and uprightness has been sullied by falsehood and slander. That any number of persons could listen to t!he bulseom tirade ofabuse which Tindall Macintyro belched tbrth is something infinitely beyond my conm prehension. Billinigsgate with all its slang could not compete in vileness of epithet with this saviour (hea:ven save the mark) of his country. I am only a poor nman, but me thinks it is better to be poor and honest than boast of holding the enviable position of king of liars, a position which iMr Macintyre has undoubtedly proved to be his own. Tindall has iitelligenco, it cannot be gain sayed because I have it from himself, but be forgets that the man who a...

Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 9 October 1868

t-ca n ad enEi' r ews. The news from Barnewall's still continues of a most promising nature. All the parties present on the ground seem thoroughly satisfied with their prospects. Sinking opera tions are being pushed rapidly ahead, so that in a very short time the ground is likely to, be thoroughly tested, and no doubt is en tertained as toy the result. A correspondent states that previous to starting sinking he tried several prospects from the banks of the river, in all of which he found gold to a greater or less extent. In the course of a few days several holes, now being sunk, will be bottomed, the results of which. will be duly noted. It will be seen from our advertising columns that the Governor has issued a writ for the election of a member to serve in the Legislative Council for the Eastern Province. To-morrow is the last day on which nomina tions will be received, and the polling. will take place on Saturday, the 24th instant. The vacancy has been caused by the retire ment of...

Alexandra Times. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNING "Veritas Vincit Omnia." FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 9 October 1868

PUIdLISED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRiDAY MORNING "Verltas Vlncit Omnia." FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1868. THE Mlacintyre-cumn-Road Board scandal has been the principal topic of conversation during the week. All are agreed in this: that whatever may have been the provoca tion, Mr Macintyro was not justified in using the insulting, abusive,and blasphemous language which he did. The question naturally arises, if Mr Macintyre be such a lover of his adopted country in general, and of that portion known as thl Alexandra Road District, in particular, and knowing, as he professes to have known, the characters of those gentlemen who stood for election, why did he not put the ratepayers on their guard. It was only when he found his interference with the affairs of the district resented, and rightly too, by the Board, that this sudden fit of philanthropy seized him. Then, and not till then, did Mr Macintyre s.eO fit to expose, in all their hideous deformity, the characters ofthose gentlemen who, having the ...

ABOUT THE STREETS. No. X. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 9 October 1868

ABOUT THE STREETS. No. X. Mr.Webster is not thin-skinned I By no means. Can you call a man thin-skinned if he resents an injury, especially when that injury may ruin his prospects for life, and cause his children to be pointed at as the sons and daughters of a thief, swindler, or vagabond, as the case may be? Would you call a man thin-skinned if he wished to, clear his character from the foul aspersions heaped upon him by another man, I care not what his status in society, his color or creed may be? Would you call a man thin-skinned if he resented a public affront by endeavoring to put himself right with the populace? Mr Webster would, argo the members of the Road Board, more especially Mr Coster, are " thin-skinned." But although MrWebster be not thin-skinned, although he would not care about having such terms coupled with his name, and although he be a devout believer in the "partiality" of the Times, yet he admits the fact that he would feel inclined to disturb the equilibrium of...
