ALEXANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 November 1868

A L EX A N D A.. We are not in a position to state with cer tai.ty whetherthe Princess of Wales is aware of the fact that the young and rising township,, the name of which appears at the head of this article, was so name i only eighteen months ago in honor of herself. This, howa ever, is curtain, that no royal favors have as yet bcon poured on the head of the man whp. itoouo godfitheriat the christening. Can ii be that the Rtoyal Princess is only waiting till she ascends the English Throne, that her power of returning the compliment may be in proportion to the honor conferred, that a star and garter may adorn. the manly .frame of the gentleman who showed his loyalty by naming this mining, grazing, agricultural'township, on the Bunks of the U,:T.

Most people are aware by this time that the township, of Alexandra extends its name to all that extent of ground comprised within the limits of the 'Road Board. district, covering an area, of about 40 miles square.

THE DANGER OF RICHES. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 November 1868

THE DANGER OF' RICHES. An alarming consideration has lately been presented to my mind concerning tile people of Victoria-namely that they are getting too rich. The true source of the acknow ledged evil that exists I have discovered to. be that we have too much money. Indivi duals have too much money, and are greatly the worse for it. - Victoria has too much money and daily sutfers great misery in consequence. It is a terrible business I Charles Lamb, whoa reminded by his sister of thedays when they were poor and: capable ofenjoying every little treat with the keenest relish, so different fro.,m the days when they were rich, s:ately, and dull,, said, " Well, Bridget, since we are in. easy circumstances we must just endeavor to put up with it." But I fear no such maxims of resignation will now avail in. either the particular or general sense. It is not ennui which has come with,riches ;; no, it is a vast amount of posi tive mischief. Wealth is rapidly demoralis ing us-the rich; man be...

PENDLEBURY. Saturday, November 7th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 November 1868

PEN D L E B U Y. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESIPONDENT.) Saturday, November 7th, 1808, The Northern G. M. Co. are now crushing 70 tons of stone which willbe finished to-day. It is expected to go about 2 oz to the ton. I feel certain that a considerable pnrtion of the gold. is being lost as there are no blankets used. 1 saw 4.dwt washed out of the box of the tailings shoot. 1alokets ought to be provided before another cru.hing takes place. The stone crushlo wts taken out of the shaft from the surface downwards. A tunnel, which is let on contr ict, is being rapidly put in, which will strike the reof at u ilepth of about 130. feet. Five weeks is the contract time for finishing the tunnel; six menoo are constantly employed on it. The roof is abiut 8 inches wide, and contains a large quantity of antimony. This is an ad ditional reason why there should be blankets on the tables, as the anti:nony carries away the gold. MIr Hinton has been appointed legal manager of the Northern. Nos. 1 and 2 West a...

MANSFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 November 1868

MANSFIELD. -4---c- (Fanos Oua OwN CO1RRESPONDBNT.) The first issue of a modest-looking; little paper, badly printed, headed the Benalla ',En?ign, has. just been circulated in the neighborhood. The youngster has received •a considerable amount of nursing from those modern Magi,: who.consider that .the :Messir--of-their - hopes is- to come'from Benalla.: How that- a place which has hitherto been considered a terra incoqnita, should suddenly. rise into. such estimation is a matter for the curious. Byr a recent issue I see that it is considerably enlarged, and devotes a leading article condemning 'the proposed Giraat Testimonial. While wishing the youngster success, we are con fidant that so soon as.it leaves off its swad dling clothes and sugar meats it will advocate more liberal and expansive views. The adjourned inquest on the body of the child found in a -closet at Jameisoa is not ,finished. Shearing on sonie of the stations is finished. Mr Clifton, of Bargaig, reports the clip as p...

IIBLII5fED EVE?y TUESDAY AND FRII)Y MIORNING " Verltaq Vincit Omrnla.' TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1808. Tn.e fearful amount.Qf immorality and crime with which the colony at large has been of.late infested, and which has cropped up in almost every section of the community - in the commercial, religious, and social worlds-affords much matter for reflection. When we look around and, see so many defaulting merchants, so, many swindling directors, and, so many lavanters with the capital which has been. entrusted, to their care and keeping', it behooves us to be very wary of those in whom we place our com mercial confidence, and engenders mistrust of even those in whomn, heretofore we have placed unlimited trust. In the religious world matters have come even to a worse pass. Scandal has been busy with the good name of our so-called religious instructors, and. no wonder that. the atheist and tbe scoffer exult. That there, aro.always some black sheep in a flock cannot be denied, but when the, fo...

----4--- At a meeting of the committee of the members of the Alexandra Musical Union, held last Friday. evening, the secretary, Mr. FI. M. Taylor, read a statement which went to show that the, gross proceeds of the late concert amounted to L7. Os. The total ox. pgndituro-printing, advertising, and other necessary expenses-was only L3 9s, thus leaving a,balance of L5 to be devoted to charitable purposes. Now that the criohketinpgseaspn has fairly set in, it is matter of astonishment that. no attempt has been made to establish. or. re ,organise our local club. The reason of this may be,. that moat of our experienced cricketers have. migrated to Godfrey's or the Whroo, but surely there are enough lovers of the manly. and,healthful game left in Alexandra to get.up.a team which, would do credit to the township and district. We hope our cricketing friends. will bestir. them selves,in thi. matter. The charge of manslapghter. brou,:ht. asaiast MIr Maurice Davis, at Jamleson, has been dispos...

THORNTON. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 November 1868

T' II 0 R N TO N.. As some little attention has lately been directed towards this old (though now new) ulluvial goldfield, I was induced by a few friends who accompanied me to pay it a visit. having had some fow years experience on the western goldfields I thought myself qualified to express an opinion favorable or otherwise, and. I must confe:s before start ing I was rather , prejudiced, against the former. However, at- Thornton, after a very careful investigation of the formation of the ground for four or five miles, I was some. what astonished to think that some practi cal eye had not previously seen the grand formations of nuriferous country there exist ing. At this particular part from a little below Darlingfi)rd, downwards, the country is so much confined that the present and original beds of the Goulburn cannot by a practical eye be mistaken in their respective courses. Although at variance with each other, the later formation of the valley is so gorgy that the newer stream c...

GODFREY'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 17 November 1868

G.ODFREY'S CREEK: ----t (pROM A SP'ECIAL REPORTER.). At the first glance this place gives some fi'nt. idea of.the rushes of the good old days when gold vas plentiful, and,theo.diggar roll ing in rude affluence, unknown in-these latter. times. There is the same characteristic indifference as to appearances, and an absence of the appliances for personal, comfort, as of old, in the' buildings, but rather more of each than is pleasant to the casual visitor. Indeed there may be said to be evinced by the denizens of Godfrey's a.generally, felt. desire to excel in the ugliness of the business premises which now constitute the township. The interminable array of dull brown stringy bark edifices, supported on frameworks of stripped saplings, without lining or any other. attempt at ornamentation, which contrasts strongly with the well-laid pine floors pro pared for the mazy dance, suggest the idea that this village is entirely devoted to. Trrpsichorian pursuits, and, that the staple of the pl...
