Although opposed to the loan, becauso we believe better termid could be obtained, as soon as the Local Governcmeut Act became hLw, we trust that the money will be judiciously expended on such improve ments a? will be advantageous to the prosperity of tlhe borough.

The members of the Council are equally dividcd-upon the subject, and hadit not been for the casting vote of the Mayor, Mr. McIver would have' been compelled tS. resign.

SCHOOL ACCOMMSODA.TION, BRUNSW1CK.
