(To the Editor of the Alexandra Times) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 14 May 1869
'(To the lEitor of the A lexanlra Tinmes) Si n,-Ina report of the proceedings of the Alexandra Rload Board, published in your issue of to-day, I find that Mr H. Perkins stated, in referenco to my punt, that "he had known a man charzedsix-pence for tucking up his trousers and walking over the river." I distinctly and most emphat ically deny that any such charge was ever made, and challenge him to prove that such was ever the case. It is now two years. or nenaly so, since I put the punt across the river, ar.d during that time I may trulthllly say that hund reds have been conveyed over free of expenca. Some have ocensionally pleaded poverty, that in fact they had not a sixpence in the world. I have in such cases inmvriably told them they must wait till some more wealthy p:ssenger should coins by, when 1 would put them over free. The ftfect of this test of ftnda has really sometimes been most tnmusing, as well :us lucrative, for the patience of the aprIarent howJ'.rar, who hvaing become...
CONCERT AT THE ELDORADO. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 14 May 1869
CONCERT AT TH? 'IE ELDORADJO. Last Saturday evening, according to an nouncement, a grand -vocal 'and dramatic entertainment, in aid, of the Catholic school fund, took place at the Eldorado Hotel. The entertainment which was very fairly patronised did not come up- in point of exceller ce to many of the previous concerts given by our local amateurs, but a total ignoring of the maxim "Practice makes perfect," in a great measure accounts for. this. The vocal portion of the programme was gone through with very fairly, but the dramatic did not come nigh mediocrity, and the fac" that several gentlemen whose names appeared in the programme were absent by no means tended.to give a brighter aspect to a fllirs. A reading, " Paddy the Piper," by Mr lmrerson, opened the first part of the enter tainment, and was well received. In the absence of MI Taylor, who, was to have followed with a song Mrs O'Conner gave " Sweet Spirit, hear my prayer," whiblh r.ceived a well-merited encore when "O. Erin, m...
