The fish, which is generally splendid, is desecrated in the same way. To vary these substantid dishes you have farsea, the chief, lngredient of which is rhubarb; the crust is Iheavy and sticky like a piece of soap. T'lhesa dishes are n cvo.l without any sJazonin?. A cruet frame is pl.:c.d b:foeo each guis't, containing the imost violent sp :es and condiments known in the wo.ld. Oil is alone ommit:ed as too fade for English pala.es.

PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEES. To the Editor of the Standard. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 29 August 1862

PUBLIO WORKS COMMITTEES. To the .Editor of the Standard. Stn,--I was rather surprised at the state ment of Mr. Ca npbell, at the nomination, on Saturday morning last, when he as erted it was a panacea for all the evils that' Councils are hewrs to, to have theo whole of the Council forming the Public WVorks committee. As one of the outsiders, I must demur to such a conclusion, and would warn my fellow-rate. payers against such sophistry. What are the facts of the case ? The whole Council form the commnittee; the committee meets in secret, the public not being admitted. The consequence is, any little log-rolling can be done nicely, the outside world (the public) knowing nothing about it; and when the Council meets in public the report is read, and as a matter of course, agreed, to. The opinion of the various members of the Couu ell, as to who was in favour of any particular scheme or otherwise would not thenlboknown; and it is not too much to assert that men in secret do what they wou...
