(To the Editor of The Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 21 May 1869

( io thi Editor of 'he Tnimea.) Stu.-Is it not strange that men who are willing to give thousands of pounds for a supposed lead should not have energy or pluck enonurh to prospect in such a good looking country as may be seen for miles around here in every direction. We have proof that at least one lead, and that a small branch runing into Godfirev's Crook (The Working Miners'). Gdfullrey's Creek proper, although a likely looking country has not yet been tested. Middle Creek is another, and so far as appearance goes and from the formation of trhe'ountry round, it would seem to point it as the centre of this gold-field. Here, however a prospecting shaft has been bottomed at a depth of 120 feet, which has yielded a little gold; but nothing c in be said about it, as they have not yet fully opened out I have no doubt it will .reward the perseverance of the shareholders. Going from here a short distance brings you to a small dividing range, on the other side of which another fine and hit...

THE MAIL STUCK UP. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 28 May 1869

THif MAIL STUCK UP. On Thursday last the Merton mail was stuck np near Longwood by a bushranger uamed Power, who was a mate of Blue-caps' in New South Wales. After opening one of the mail bags, taking whatever valuables the letters contained, he went off leaving the other bag unopened. On the day previous to stopping the mail, this same fellow stuck up Mr Wilson's boundary rider, and after trying his horse returned it, saying it was not so good as the onoe he bhd, -Ile then offered the boundary rider L100 from a large bundle of notes he took out '( his pocket, if he would join him in sticking up the Merton mail, remarking at the same time that it was a fine chance fou a y oung follow. The offer was perhaps judiciously declined, although a smart man might have profited by the opportunity by watching his chance of getting the scoundrel into the bands of the police. Several troopers are on the look out for this freebooteo, and there can be little doubt but that his career will soon be ...

Thli Queen's IBirthday 'assed off very quietly. in ourciownship. Two vor throe flags flying were about the only: demonstrations of loyalty that were exhibited. All our storekeepers kept their places of business open as usual, and with the exception of the Government Offices and the Bank all other establishments went on at their usual slow, uninteresting pace. At ten o'clock at night, however, about a dozen of lHer Majesty's loyal subjects met at the Corner Hotel to partake of a cray-fisli supper and drink "'The Queen. God bless her." This was followed by the " National Anthem" and sung in a manner 'that would reflect credit on a band of professional singers.
