(To the Editor of the Mt'icor Times.) Sta..--Allow me to correct an error in your last week's issue regarding the Critique on Mr. Marston's Benefit. I certainly can play on two or three instru ments, but I could never conquer the Hurdy-gurdy, which is always worn round the neck, mine never bent so low. As to the sitting with my back to the audience, hearing that Some people consider me too stale and too old, I thought of these and turned my back, that my old ugly face might not annoy them, very considerate on my part and returding good for evil. It reminds me of a French author who says, " Les ignorans et tls fous- ;" but, pray pardon me, I forgot you are not a linguist. However, I have always been willing to give my Services to all local charities, and let me add that, as everybody in the town knows that I came before the public pro fessionally solely with the view of alle viating, by my efforts, the unforseei mis fortunes of an honorable, upright, strug. gling Husband and a large ...

(To the Editor of the M'lvor Times.) 81a,---Can you tell me the reason why the ballance money, amounting to over 450, collected some two years ago, for the pumpose of racing has not. been made use of-more especially as the amount at present, is lying in the Bank without interest, and no use to any one'? Now I should propose that a day's sport be got up on our Race Course, on Boxing Day. The amount might be .in creased'to at least £70, which would give sufficient prizes for Racing and other sports, and as the day appears likely to pass over without any of our usual sports, I consider it would be agreeable to the subscribers, and at the same time give everyone an opportunity of enjoying them. selves. Your kind attention to the above will greatly oblige Yours respectfully, A SUBSCRIBER.

WARDEN'S COURT. Thursday, December 10th, 1863. Mining Encroachment.-Boyse v. Phil lips and Campbell. Verdict for Boyse, each party to-pay their own costs. STRATAGEM BETTER THAN FORao. At the theatre, Vienna, all ladies are re quired to take off their bonnets before entering the theatre to take take their places. This provision has been found necessary since, owing to the present fashion prevailing in that article of female attire, it is almost impossible for. persons sitting'behind a l'dy _with bonniet ion to see what is going forward on the 'stage. At a theatre in Paris the same end has been attained by 'plicingg printed bills 'aboht the theatre containing the following announcemen't:-"'. All young and 'hand some ladies are politely requested to take off their. bonnets. All - others may keep -them on."

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 11 December 1863
WELL might sages have turned with disgust from the study of human nature, if they met with such enigmas as are often pro sented to us in the nineteenth century, well might they hold up the ant and the bee a: models worthy of human imitatiorn The thought is certainly perplexing that these little creatures should always by mere in stin&t be industriously engaged in useful work, while some men who boast of the divine attribute of reason, spend their life in mental toil for no other apparentpur pose than that of devising' means for de creasing the happiness of their fellow men Industry is only a virtue when rightly directed towards a good and useful end. That Mr. Superintendent Wilson is indus trious, no one can deny, for whenever the business at the police court is slack, the police are sent out to hunt up a few paltry cases of allowing horses, cows, goats, or pigs to wander among the houseless and thistle covered streets, contrary of course to the provisions of the Town and Co...
MINING BYE-LAW MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 11 December 1863
MINING BYE-LAW MEETING. As there was another meeting called for the same time and place (as the Anti Transportation Meeting), for the purpose of taking into consideration the advisibility of making an effort to procure the repeal of the 23rd Clause of No. 5 Bye-Law of the Sandhurst Mining Board Mr. Thomas proposed-"That the Mayor retain his seat, and conduct the business of the meeting." Carried by acclamation. The Chairman said he had much pleasure in presiding, for whatever may be the-in terpretation of the clause in other portions of the district, its opperation here is ex ceedingly unjust. Mr. Thomas rose to propose the first resolution; he reiterated the statements made in the leading columns of the Times regarding the injustice of the clanse, and said it gave him. meat satisfaction to see so much interest taken in the matter, and with no small amount of pleasure he would move the followiug resolution.: "That this meeting deems it expedient to employ every means in its power to...
ANTI-TRANSPORTATION MEETING [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 11 December 1863
ANTI-TRAYSPORTAr'ION b MEETING A publia meeting ws 1held on Tuesday night, for the purpose of considering the rdvisibility of petitioning fei Majesty to prevent the transportation 'of ciipiniiials ' the Australian Colonies. The Mayor occupied the chair, and opened the proceedings by reviewing the arguments so often used in favour of the objects of the meeting, he believed that Great Britain should make an attempt to deal with the question,. instead of attemp-. ting, to get rid of it by sending the crimi. nls to these colonies. As it is better to prevent crime than to punish it, he thought it the duty of society at home to make a great effort to reduce the. amount of crime by taking in hand, and training the little houseless wanderers in the. large .towns of Britain, for from this source a large per centage of criminals spring. After speak ing at some length, the chairman said he would be happy to put any resolutions upon the subject to the meeting that any gentlemen may have, to pro...
