Mr, Goll has the courage, of hia opinions, and can express them in language which commands attention.

No person can, oven though he command tho pen of a ready writer, fully e ? press his views on theso^ subjects, in an electoral address ; and it is of prime importance that the dis trict should be. intimately acquainted with tho ^member's opinions on such subjects, be fore they send him to Parliament to legist late for them.

WANTED— A HAY SIECHANICS' INSTITUTE. TO THIS EDITOR OF THE RIVEH1NE ORAZIEH. Slit,— Among colonial towns,' Hay has earned for it self a somewhat bibulous character. . Bacchus certainly has many ardent Totarics here, and the permanent body of worshippers in his temple is constantly reinforced by tile arrival of thirsty detachments, who come from east, west, north, and south — from up or down the River — with an incessant recurrence ?which' iniist. prove highly remunerative to those who supply the requirements of the visitors to Hay.1 In fact, nearly all the activities and interests of life appear here to centre themselves in Hotels. Notliiug scarcely is done' without their aid, direct or indirect. Life in the cities of the United States has been aptly styled ' Hotel life : 'our mode of life is much the same. Some thoughtful men, Sir, among your readers may have mourned over the proneness to excessive indulgence' in intoxicants which is observable in this and other com munities : they...
