WATER FOR THE NEW TOWNSHIP. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE FREE PRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 6 September 1866
WATER FOR TIIE NEW TOWNSHIP. (To TIIE EDITOR OF TilE FREE PRESS.) SiR,-Some time before the last election it was mooted in the Borough Council by Messrs. Taylor and Thomas, the supplying the Newtownship with water. Since that time, however, nothing further has been heard cf the matter. It appears that this movement was merely instituted as an election "ruse," which, ihdeed, has had the desired effect, as those. councillors were elected at the head of the poll. The rate payers of the Newtownship, therefore, ex pect that those councillors will agitate anew their former propositions, and procure through their ability enat which during the summer season is much needed--a supply of good. fresh water. Yourm, &c. Kilmore September 5ith, 1SGGQ.

THE apathy which has- been. displayed: with regard to electoral registration through out the co!cnv, during the time allotted.for. making cut the triennial general- lists, is enculated to materially efecat the legislation of our country for some time to come, more especially should a dir olution of parliament, occur before an opportunity is again afforded. persensato, secure the franchise. eircum. stances have come under our notice during the week preceding the first day of Septem ber, which, to a certain extent have shook' our faith in the present Electoral Act se. cunring a proper representation, and which. convince us that it would bear some amend mente which may be found to be beneficial to all grades of society, and. would undoubtedly tend to promote and foster po" litical honesty.

" Why, Mr Prince I have begged a few hay seeds which I have in a bundle, and am going to sow them upon my poor husband's grave, and I have brought a little water with me to make a spring." "You have no occasion to do that, as the grass will soon grow upon it," replied the clerk. "Ah, Mr Prince, that may be; but do you know, my husband, who now lies there, made me promise him on his death. bed I would never marry again till 1he grass would grow over his grave, and having a good offer made me, I dinna wish to break my word, or be kept as I am."
