It appears to have been "quite the thing" with all the former Municipal Councils to be always at variance about seme matter the importance of which no person oould discern but ] themselves, and we beard of nothing but resigna tions, etc., because Jobson would not act with Robson, or Tomson wouldn't vote with Bibson, and so 'on.'

THE BURENDA TRAGEDY. To the Editor of the Western Star. j Sir,—As the unhappy end of the two men -who perished in the bush while fruitlessly endeavouring to reach the Nive Downs Station has called forth considerable comment in the public press, •will you kindly allow me space in your paper for the follow ingremarks ? Happening shortly after Christmas to be near the scene of the disaster, I made personal enquiry from reliable authority concerning the fate of the unfor tunates.
