REGISTER. ElSGISl'ER. To-MOBnow will be the last day upon which those whose -ntmcs arc not upon the Electoral Ililli can claim to ha va them inserted. It will be useless to complain of being disqualified at the next election for city Bcprescntutlvcs, or to plead the right you possess by a receipt fur taxes. Any mau has the power of ascertaining for himself mm whether his name is on the roll, and whether his qualification has been correctly set down, li he neglect this opportunity hu will have no one to blame but himself. Alter to- morrow it will be too late. Let every citizen then go personally and satisfy Iih nijud that Ipj has not becq/tnc disqualified ; let bim ascertain that his right qualifi- cation is on the roll.
