Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 3 December 1868

We beg to inform our readers that in   future this journal will be published every   Monday and Thursday. In consequence of our limited space for general news we intend to to publish a supplement with the Thursday's   issue. Monday's issue will contain adver-   tisements and local news only. By this alteration the Alexandra Times will not at only be a more readable paper, but will   have a wider circulation throughout the sur-   rounding districts.   Considerable excitement was created last bI night. in our township by tht arrival from ti Golfrey's Creek of a nugget weighing p 04 oi'l0 dwt 3' gr of solid gold, which at was placed in the Commercial Bonk. To e a fortunate finder is a man named Charlie o Edwards, a Woodspointer. The sale of Crown lands, held on Friday 1 last, at Mr Itaphnel'e auction mart, was thinly attended.

(- 1nrrrplulntnl. WOOD'S POINT IN DANGER!I! (To the Editor of The Alexandra !imes.) DEAR Sin,-To you, as my old and tried friend in times of difficulty, I call aloud for protection. Sound the trumpet of alarm ! "to the rescue," or I am undone. See you not the serpent in the grass, in the shape of the Jamieson Borough Council, which is trying ite old game of amalgamation with me; by which I would be deprived of self government, and shorn of my honor and glory. With Jamieson three votes, Mac's creek three, and a few other such ridings with three votes each ; what chance, I ask you, Sir, would I have in carrying any resolution in the proposed anmialgmated body that did not meet with the approval of Mr Rapiport, who does just as he likes with the people of Jamieson, and would do the same with me if he had a chance ? I object to `ihe utnion; 1 bar the bans of matrimony; I won't have it; I like my own freedom; I prefer managing my own affairs. No douht Jamieson would like to have me as a ...

HIGINBOTHAM. December 2nd, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 December 1868

II IGIN BOT IIAM. [From our Own Corrc'pondent.] December 2nd, 1868.. The members of the Cosmopolitan Pros pecting Club, of Iliginbotham, gave last night the first of a series of amateur con certs. The object in view is to' raise funds to defray the expenses of two nfthe company constantly prospectaring, while their main work of turning the creek is being onried on. This speculution of turning the creek is regarded with gidfit favor by many and no doubt will prove one of the most remunerative in the district. A flood race a mile in length will be required, and .it will occupy at least six weeks before work in the bed of the creek can be started. If this work (and -it may be called' public work) be carried out it will be the saving of Higinbotham, which is sadly. on the decline. But to return to the concert.; It. is seldom that an amateur meeting of. ti:s kind is carried through without some slight deficiency or break down. In the present case nothing occured to mar the regularity of ...

BIG RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 December 1868

:BlG itt V 5iIt. -4---- (FRo OUR OWN COIIIIESPONDENT.) The approach of Christinrs, I have always. noticed, causes a great dulness in all kinds of business,.nt least it does uplhere, and this. I suppose arises from the miners being" desirous of having enough money for a. Christmas spree. nmd consequently saving all they can scrape together for that purpose. The extreme heat of the weather is rapidly reducing the water in the Big River, and there is therefore some promise of' an early opportunity of working the bed cf the river which has always proved a very remunerative summer reserve, particularly should the season continue unusually dry as this pro mises to he, but as the river rises very rapidly, a severe thunder storm at or .about. the hendsof it or its feeders may, by shifting the da;ns undo. the work of weeks, however thlee or fobu parties are now setting in about Warner's Creek, and us good returns have always been oltainnd in this lEcality they will no dou',t harve'reason to ...

WOOD'S POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 December 1868

WOOD'S POINT. b [From our own Correspondent.j s An accident happened on Monday even- t ing to C. W. Lewis's wagon and horses, as they were going back to Melbourne on the new road lately cut by the Council. It * appears the person in charge was the worse of liquor, and had been advised not to start until moaning, but he declined the a4d~..nd4 yncrdaded bon lie way When, near the boundary of the Government and Borough rouds the team got off the track and rolled down the sideling, towards Hlarper's Creek. One of the horses was killed, and the remaining three got off with a severe. shaking. It may be mentioned that the police, with Messrs lltclhens, Small and Lawler, from Matlock. rendered great assistance in relieving the poor animals. There is a report that some good stone has open struck in the Lochfyne claim by the 'tributers, Messrs Lawlor and party. The tributers of the Champion claims will have to be idle during the summer for want of water. , They are going to- wash up soon, and...

GODFREY'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 December 1868

GODFREY'S CREEK. of To say that "it is not all gold that ge glitters," is merely repeating a fact which lt most persons have found out for themselves I{e' from painful experience; but although ex- we perilence may be looked upon as a very sm good master, it cannot be denied that in very pr] many instances his teachings have been wl neglected and forgotten the moment some ris other glittering hait has been held out to 10 lure aside the unwary. This, althonlih true m in a general sense, is more particularly so in ne reference to mnining speculations and miners. ci The real thorough paced milner is a nomadic t animal, who is never satisfied with doing" well, but always wishing to do better, longing for something fresh, no matter what, and the distance being great, the difficulties and dangers whlich beset the way is anny, only tend to whet his appetite for 0 some new adventure. That the inducements i to run off to Whroo have been great, must p _be admitted. but I think it would have di...

An accident which was attended with serious consequiences, happened to a shearer last week. Alter being paid off lt one of the stations, as usual a drinking bout com menced at a public house in the township. Towards evening some five or six drunken horsemen started from one of the public houses ani galloped furiously up the street. The individual above mentioned caime to grief by filling off his horse, and was carried away insensible. I hear that he is still lying ill, attend d by Dr, RIeynolls. 'The slaughter of the innocents still con tinues,. and scarcely at dog is to be seen in the township. The miscreants are. not satisfied with sweeping away the source of a considerable revenue to the Shire Council but have commenced a merciless raid against poor pussy. It would be a stoical nature indeed that could listen unmoved to the grief explessed by many a berea...

THORNTON. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 10 December 1868

THORNTON. The old adage "that wonders never cease" has been well verified by the Morning Star Company, they having kept the whole neighbourhood, and I expect Alexandra, in a constant state of wonder and surmise-ever since practical operations have commenced .as to their success or otherwise. The bare idea-especially when truthfilness predomin ates-that a mining company is carrying on its.operations in so clandestine a manner, I think will be generally admitted, is cal culated to create the greatest doubt, as well as (suppressed) suspicion. Nevertheless, the hope gradually and daily increases that but a very short time will elapse before this company will relieve a great many anxious minds who are anticipating good things, and are willing and waiting to com mence operations on a large scale, on receipt af any sterling news It certainly is alto gethern private matter amongst themselves; but I thir.k under such circ,.mstances, where general progress and prosperity to many would inevita...
