PILFERING FLOWERS FROM THE PUBLIC GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 17 November 1860
PI.FERING FLOWERS FROM TRE. PUBLIC GARpEi.-The Manager of .the Public Gar den has complained to the Council of nume rous petty thefts having been, committed of late by persons damaging and-.emoving the shrubs and flowers comimitted to his keeping, etiataccrding to Mfr. Aitkin's statement, these d'epredatforis are carried mn in thei most bare faced manner. The: delinquents are mostly females, who seem to think they have a right to do as they plense. .They enter the garden, help themselves to the :choicest flowers, and not satisfied with. that .'they pluck-up and carry off roots by the basketfiul, caling the garden:fence in some instances to get away. As these grounds are maintained, at rtat im riznse expense: to the town, it is the duty of public servants to protect theni by every means. that lie in-their power, and to use every effort to put an end to this system of pillage.

Original Correspondence. PROCRASTINATOR. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 17 November 1860
PRO: CRASTINATOR. [To the Editor of the WT~ tAorsrow" C?noNICLE.] Sr,--The announcement made in your is sue of last week by the editor of "Procras tinator" that he was` still alive and kicking, ind tlat:he wvas preparing to give battle to the Philistines ere another week had rolled away, no doubt created a; great sensation in the minds ofyour readers. That I should be selected as the Goliath upon whom lie will try his hand-at stone-slinging, is an honour which I did not anticipate, and one which I do not deserve, for I consider that the rough and jagged cut or two he 'got from my poor weapon was nothing compared to the terrible thrusts of:' Nemo" and the editor's very ques tionable friend "Yeritas" Indeed, I'consider that the latter was the most merciless of all, and treacherous in the highest degree. He entered the field by pretending to take sides with the weaker party, but finding that his case- was desperate, he cnolly turned round upon"' Procrastinator" and gave him "the un kin...
