1 ; Vasse. [From our Correspondent.] Vasse, Wednesday. &nbsp; &nbsp; Mistakes, it appears, are unavoid able at times. The other week in giving an account of the decision of the. arbitrators in the case of Rey nolds t'. Sussex Roads Board, it was inadvei'tently stated that Mr. Yelver ton was totally opposed to the award It has since transpired that this was not exactly correct. Ifc appears that Mr. Yelverton's opinion after inspect ing the laud was that the Board should fence one side of the road only, i.e., the south side, so as to protect the land that hao been cultivated ; also that the Board should erect two gates, one near the Wonnerup Bridge and the other near the boundary line between Locke and Reynolds. The decision was given late in the evening and I had no time to make enquiries respecting the disagreement of the arbitrators ; aud I mosfc certainly was led to believe from what I could glean at the time that my report was correct, and ifc was only very lately...
