The report of the finance oouimittee of the City Council, as read yesterday afternoon in the Town Hall, is worthy of something more than a passing comment. We do not take it upon ourselves to lectuBJ the members of the Town OouiiL-il unon their duties as such : but it sometimes happens tliat matter;, of the gravest importance are treated in an un accountably careless manner by thai body ; aud it then becomes necessary to remind its member* that there are watchful eyes intent on their proceedings, and that the public will net sufter its graver interests to be neglected by those chosen to superintend them. We do not wish to insinuate that the members of the Council have beeu guilty of any peculiar dereliction of duty of late. The state of things which now exists has existed for years. It may be that from mistaken good nature on their part, or through a singular misapprehension of the importance of the principle involved in the case on which the finance committeejdrew up their report, ...

VOLUNTEER PARADES To the Editor of the Eer.iiag Xttc*. fen-,— iicing a member of Ko. 2 Company S.H.Y.H., I, on behalf of many others, v,-ish respectfully to point out to the officer in command the folly of calling parades in undres3 uniform in the daytime. ! The Sydney Battalion of Rifles has lately received i new uniforms, or rather new tunics, the trousers and shako remaining the same as formerly. These tunics are supposed to last for two years, audit appears that all parades, with the exception of the Commanding Officer's— which, by-the-byc, arejewandfar between — arc to be called in undress. Now, Sir, considering that at least one quarter of the men have not got undress tunics, it must inevitably lead to a bad muster, for those that have no undress cannot attend ; and those that have, when they find so bad a muster, a? there was last Saturday, will not care about attending again. No doubt it will be said every man has a right to provide himself with an un dress coat; but I respe...
