REGISTERl! REGISTER! REGISTER! During the remainder of this month the general lists for the. year of the voters fbor the Legislative Council annd Assembly will be comp ld. At St. Kilda and Prahian there are numbers of persons entitled, bht who cannot vote in consequence of their own neglect. People will not pay their rates in time, and those who do pay will not take the trouble ofi sitisfying themselves that their names are on the roll. It is always in thie power of a person to either call at or send to.the council offices, but the town clerks all easserl that in spite of large sums being annually expended in advertisements and placards, inviting perso!s to inspect the lists, scarcely anybody takes the trouble to come. It is ia eatu're worthy tihe attention of our politiciani, the little value set upon the privilege, of universal suffrage; it might be abolished for all tbhi general publio wouls, pplarently care. - ' IC ·
