Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 13 October 1868

Sula gaud Onei at Xeui . v _ Mrs Fisk, residing on the Goulburn, near John Jones', was bitten eby a snake.on Sun day last. =It appears that whilst outwhalking in the bush Mrs Fisk sat down to resti and shortly after was bitten by a brown, snake on the. calf of the leg. She called to her husband, who killed the snake. Dr. Fergus. son was sent for and found the woman in a stare of coma, and suffering from all the symptoms of snake poisoning. Four hours and a half had elapsed before the doctor saw her. The remedies applied had the effect of immediately rousing the patient from her comatose state, and she is now quite re covered. We trust that Dr. Fergusson will favor us with the antidote used aa he may be able to elucidate something of value on the impcrtant snbject of snake poisoning. We have seen about 10 dwt of gold obtained from about the same number of buckets of dirt, taken from a shaft at the Thornton diggings, by Peel, and Co. The gold is neither co?rse nor fine. It is smopth I...

(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 13 October 1868

(To the e1itor of the Alecand:lra Tinmes.) Sir-A- one of the committee of the Pupnlar Ertertamlnienta, I am very sorry to see a. letter in to-day's issue. of the Courier, from the Secretary, stating that through an " irreparable burst up" amongst that body no entertainment can come off on l'upeday next. Ifthe Secretary had been in the habit of attending the B3pard a little more regularly than he is in the hlabit of doing another kind of table, no such "burst up" would have occurred. The Secretary is generally supposed to be the. prime mover in. these matters, and I think it therefore out of all good taste for one-in this instance-to lay the un fortunate continued adjournment of the entertainments solely upon us. I am afraid we shall have to cut off, this "branch" from the Popular Entertainments Committee before we can look forward. to another successful entertainment. I remain, &c., ONO OF,THE T'OTHERS. Alexpandra,. Oct. 10th, 1868.

Mr Emerson for plaintiff. Plaintiff deposed that Macintyre lhad used. some grossly abusive language of the most disgraceful sort. The defendant had been systematically annoying the complainants by howling at them in the streets and at public houses, accusing them of offences and crimes. of almost every description, the whole of which were purely imaginary. Mr Coster's complaint was that he had been accused in language not fit for publication, ot swindling a man out of a piece of land at Longwood, and having been fined L200. 'rlhis charge had been repeated by the daflendant at a, public meeting. In c, oss-exammnation Mr Coster stated that he never had any dealing with the man at all. The man sold the land to another herson, and forged a deed to. get rid of it. 't'he title was had in conse-. quence, ...

( To'the Editor ot The Alexandra Tiwes.). Sir,-As one anxious to promote educa- tion,.I beg that. you.will allow me a small space in your journal, to-call the attention of my fellow Catholics to .a question of the most vital importance, which. affects not only their own weal,.but that of the entire comnmunity.. As we, the Catholics, know. well that we are not allowed, under pain of censure, to send:,. our children to any other school than a Ca tholic one, it is our solemn duty then to. unite and generously to contribute each a. quota to the maintenar.ce of a school con ducted by a Catholic teacher; There needs be no alarm on the part. of any parent that heretical principles will he instilled into the mind of his child, nor that the religious. training necessary for the young Catholic shall be neglected. With a sense of the duties which his holy religion inculcates, the well-trained Catholic is the best ornament to. society, and it must be admitted, has been remarkably such from the ...

(To the Editor of the A leaxandra Timen.) Sir,-Once upon a time the cackling of" a goose saved Rome from destruction. On. another occasion, when the people of that ancient city were nearly " cooked," they were saved only by the intervention of Cincinn'tus, the grout general .and stump. orator of the day. A deputatiun (so writes the hiscorian) of ratepayers of the Roman municipality, wafted upon the above gentleman, whom they found practising on. the stumps of his own clearing-hence the derivation of the term " stump orator." Alluding to stump orators very naturally reminds me of Tindall Maointyre, Why not get the ratepayers of Alexandra to call upon this gentleman 1 Although he may be similarly engaged, as Cincinnatus' -digging " taters," or on the stump- have no doubt he will at once take coach to Melbourne, and use his powerful influence with his friend M.r Steavenson to have a large sinm ofmoney rlaced on the Estimates for making roads and bridges about Alex andra, and at the sam...

"Throwing the hatchet" or" drawing the long bow" is looked upon as an innocent amusement by those who practise the art, and no doubt in many instances is a source of pleasure to the ninnies who indulge in that sort of thing; but there is a section in Alex andra who fly at higher game, the height of whose ambition is to make themselves notorious as blackguards, fast young men, and such like; who seem to think it something clever to remove a barber's pole and place it over the residence of a doctor, to purloin a paltry door plate, or deface a Government notice. But what a joke is it to them if by any possible means they can place a billet of wood, a heavy form, or some similar trifle against a door so that the serving wench who opens it next morning may run the risk of having her head broken, or perchance her face d...
