Ovu generally well-informed contem purry, the Hamnpdea Guardian; contaius a leading article in its issue of the 9th instant on the boundaries of the Shires of Colac and Hampden. The Colac Shire Council is charged in this article with not havng " co operated in a more cordial manner" with the Hampden Uouncil in procur ing a solution of his boundary ditficulty. Our contemporary is evidently under a mistake in this matter, for there is no ditfficulty at all so far as the 'Cola Shire Council is concerned. No.douhb Mr Daskein's "amended description" of the boundary line admirably suited the Hampden Shire Council, inasmuch as it deprived the Colac Shire of a large slice of its territory; and the Railways and Roads refused to take Mr Daskein's " amended description," and adhered to the old boundary, as gazetted at the instance of both Councils some time since. We will endeavor to place the correct version of this question before our readers, and they will be able to see that the Colac Shir...
