Sir,--Brunswick should be able to boast, from its elevated position, its soils and rocks, of being the healthiest town in Victoria. Its soils are the richest of brick earths,. almost impervious to soakage; its streets are valuable quarries of paving blocks, ready to hand ; its drainage of the easiest description; its water :supply more than abundant, and its rates ample. Notwithstanding all these advantages, it is at the present day one of the dirtiest around Mel bourne. No town can be kept clean by contract; it 'should be done by the council, supervised by an inspector, whose years and experience in sanitary matters should give firmness and decision` in all orders that the work shall be done as it ought to be. This inspector will not require to be carted about in a roomy buggy if he wishes to do his work, but in and out of premises, nooks and corners on foot, without any noise or show in his movements. No town c...

GOLDEN CROSS INN. DY C.M I LLA. Many years ago, there lived near Man chester a wealthy old gentleman named Julian Vernon. With him resided William Vernon; his brother's son, who was associated with him in business. The old man, though now on the verge of three score and ten year,, was yet in the habit, as he had b:cn for nearly half a century, of riding into Manchester alone, once a year, to collect his rents. This business usually took two or three days for its transaction. Being of a miserly disposition, he preferred to do the errand himself rather than pay an agent, however trifling tile charge may be. Will Vernon cauntantly upbraided the old man with the folly of the thing, telling him that it was not sale to g1 on such journeys alone, that hewould certainly ha robbed and perhaps murdered ; but it was of no' use to remonstrate. Mr Vernon -could find no.rea, son that was of sulli:ient importance to pre vent him from pursuing the caurcs which he had marked out for himself, and whi...
