IN our last issue we briefly referred to the matter of a water supply for Penrith, arid mentioned at the same time some of tlie advantages of the Holly'System. On Tues day last, a fire broke out on the premises of Mr. Wm. Ortli, wlii*A, had it not been for ' the large quantity of water that Mr. Ortli had stored in two tanks, saved from the late rain, and the assistance of a'number of willing hands, some of whom worked like very Trojans, damage in that part of the town would have been done to the extent of thousands of pounds, and a dozen families would now bo homeless ; in fact, it is diffi cult to conjecture where the fire would have spread to.

The provision made by the Holly Company in case of fire, so far as we can ascertain, is si...
