An adjourned, meeting of the Alexandra Road Board was held last'nighlt. Present: Mr J. Plterkin (Chairman), arid Messrs Coster, Pisrkins: and Penalehury.. There was a considerable amount of general business disposed of. and a good' deal of difference of opinion as to. the proper mole of con ducting the financial business of the Board. Several accounts were passed for payment, subject to the approval of the F'inance Com mittee, and the meeting adjourned.. The Alexandrian Ethiopian Minstrelse will give their first concert on Monday evening, at the Eldorado Hotel,. the proceeds of which will be devoted' to the. relief of the sufferers by the late accident at the Aurora claim, No; 3 Luckie..

Correspondence. (To the Editor of the Alexandra Times) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 13 February 1869

cnrrrslp~jnenrr. (To the Editor of the Aleandra Times) Sirs,-YoIr unceasing efforts in the cause of education merit the highest commehdation. The degraded state of a large section of the people( of this colony no doubt arises to a great extent from the lamentable uamount of ignorance which prevails amongst them. Soma remedial effect therefore becomes necessary. No doubt it is nbhanced in a great measure by the migratory amode of life that many have to lead to enable them to procure the necessaries of life to support themselves and families, especially those that adopt the occupation of miners. Miners, as a class, are possessed in a wonderfhi degree of two noble traits of character-self-reliance and per severance-b- y which they attain their share of temporal prt'sperity. I do not consider that they obtain their flair ratio of the public money voted for education. Perh?aps their tenure in a district may be but for twelve months only; during that time how anxious generally nar they re...
