CHRONICLE. IVILLIAMSTO 1, Saturday, February 21st. THE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL AND THE CHRONICLE. WE wish to say a few words in reference to the events which have transpired between us and the Municipal Council within the last two or three weeks; and in doing so, we trust that no remark of ours may be construed into a desire to revive the ill-feeling which has ex isted, and which, we are glad to observe, is now fast subsiding. Our readers are aware that the cause of lthis unfortunate disagreement was our omit ting to publish the report of the Council's pro ceedings on the 22nd ult. This omission, it _appears, nave ..some ol'enceto the.Council, report into our columns had we been so dis posed. We now assure them that they were never more deceived in anything than they were in this. To have published these mi nutes the day after we received the copy would have been an impossibility,-unless we did so in our first or last page, in which case we should have been compelled to omit a large numbe...

THE MELBOURNE AND GEELONG RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 21 February 1857

THE MELBOURNE AND GEELONG RAILWAY. It will be gratifying to our readers to know that the Melbourne and Geelong Railway is being carried on with such rapidity as to lead us to hope the permanent way as far as the Junction of the Williamstown line will be open to the public by the 1st May. The contractor, who is Mr. Attrill, has just completed a tem- porary line under the directions of the Com pany, from the junction to the banks of the River Yarra Yarra, close to Williamstown, and where he has also run out a wharf some three hundred feet (and this at a cost of upwards of £1500) for the purpose of landing the sleepers and rails, and conveying them to the perma- nent line. As an evidence of the energy of the directors, we may mention the fact that they have placed an engine of twenty-eight tons on the temporary line, and which is in active work so as to render every facilicity in the undertaking. The ballasting and laying the rails of the permanent way has been calculated to occupy a w...
