The minutes of the preceding meeting were read and confirmed. CORRESPONDENCE. Letters, addressed to the Chairman, were read as follows : 1. From Mr. John Finlay, calling the attention of the Council to the railway cutting in Cole-street, which (unless some provision be made in the form of a temporary road over such cutting,) still inflict con- siderable loss on the Municipal contractors; and which, if a permanent bridge be not built over it, will be a great public inconvenience through all future time.

[AnvEr.nsseHEtTS.] [To the Editor of the WttILLIA?STOw CHno??cvs.]J SiR,-Giving DMr. Medland full credit for his good' intentions, which I am sorry to say we cannot con vert into a cheap paremnent for the streets of" Williamstown, I must still maintain that " according to the rules which govern language," the words "the minister of any church" do not point to S. S. sad he written "a minister of the church," his meaning would have been expressed. As for the letter of "Progress", who-"seems ambitious for a motley coat," I do not think it?worth replying to, further than (as he speaks of "A.B.C." and "T.D." rushing out &c.) to ask, What, in the name of gallantry, .would any one have me.to do0 but to rush out with a lady, as soon as I saw-~ "fools rush in where angels fear to tread.. -. Now, Sir, I hope we shall have no more "clerical buffoonery," and it" is not withoit the strongeft feelings of disgust, that I regard the vile xprcasion, falling so glibly as it does fromh the pen...

THE DOG NUISANCE. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 7 February 1857

THE DOG NUISANCE. [To the Editor of thIe WaLLtIaSTOW Csnosr?czL.] Si,-Could you inform me if I am correct in supposing that there is a Police regulation in this district, to the effect, that all dogs must be registered and have collars with the owners names engraved upon them? If so, I should wish to be informed who has the power to see such regulations enforced. I am induced to ask these questions in consequence of the number of curs of all sorts and sizes that con tinually prowl about Nelson-street. Any one ins walking from Ann-street to the Bank of Australasia, during the afternoon, taking the trouble to numnber them, could easily count a hundred if not more. :If the Police do not attend to this growing evil? it is. quite time the Corporation should do something to, put a stop to such a dangerous nuisance. I am,. Sir, &c. INCHLAGGtIE. Williamstown, February 4th 1856.

MUTINY AT SEA.-The investigation into the charge of mutiny, preferred by Captain Pearse, of the Ame rican ship Sunshine, against thirteen of the crew, terminated on Saturday last. The Consul (J. 3M.

They were ecut on board the Sunshine, as prisoncre, to remain there in charge of the Water Police, until the Consul obtains the Governor's sanction to have them kept in the Melbourne gaol to such time as an opportunity occurs to forward them to America.

o?tsn stic ntllteligence. MlusicIrALCouscsI REronTs.--The following sen sible remarks, which we recommend to the consider ation of our Thompson-street friends, were published in the Argus a few days ago :-W- e are frequently compelled to omit the reports furnished us by the clerks of the various suburban municipalities, on ac count of the extreme length to which these docu ments extend. A record of those proceedings which are calculated to Interest the general readers of our paper might be advantageously compressed into a very narrow compass, andwe could then undertake to give the reports insertion. But it must be evident, upon reoection, that the narrative of a discussion upon a lamp, a drain, or a pigstye in the Municipal Council of Little Peddlington cannot have the slightest in terest for our readers at Ballarat, or Beechworth, for example; and though the same objection may be argued as applicable to some of the twaddle talked in Parliament, still it is the Council of the nation...

CHRONICLE. IWILLIAMSTOWN, Saturday, February 7th. THE WILLIAMSTOWN MUNICIPAL COUNCIL & THE CHRONICLE. . IN our issue of last week appeared an adver tisement, signed by Mr. Mason, of the Muni cipal Council, stating that "difficulties existed' "to the future publication of the Council's "proceedings in the lfilliamstowron Chronicle, "unless the weekly report of such proceed " ings were paid for as an advertisement," and informing the public that "the Minute Book "of the Council would at all times be open: "for the inspection of ratepayers."

Multitudes of souls areperishing for Lack of knowledge. They aro around us in this L-ns myriads in other lands, and sany of them cry, "Come over and help us." Our great Redeemer gave cheerfully to all who sought his blessings with out respect of persons. Although the demands on the Christian's benevolence are very many, it is his duty to "do good unto all men", andto be "ready to crery good work." The Missionary efforts in connection with the Church of England in Williamstown, are few and feeble as yet,-but "who hath despised the day of mall things 1" There isreason for thankfulness that an interest is being felt in this town for "men be ighted."
