That the water is'polluted there seems to be little room for' doubt. It is alleged that ever since the local mill of Messrs. MAcDDouALL commenced operations, there has been a drainage from the various material used in the manafac. ture of paper, to the creek, anti that this drainage quite spoils the stream for domestic purposes But hitherto the discharge has been slight; and though strongly resented the nuisance has been borne by residents lower down with a degree of tolera'ion which, is the evidence they adduce be reliable, is to say the least, a greater testimony to...

The Night.-oil Depot. TnEsa can he no doubt, in spite of what is said to the contrary that we are nearer the possession of this indis. pensible adjunct to civilization than we were some time ago. The nouncil, after negotiations which have extended over a length of time we do not care to calculate. have at last decided to pur chase a block of five acres. situate in a paddock of Mr. D. fclcKenzie's, on a hill about a mile South East of the Railway Station. But like the farmer of old who went to prove his voke of oxen after buying them. Cr. Holwell, after the Council had resIlved to pur chase the land, decides that itis time 'o inspect it. Consequently a discussion arose at the last meeting on the wisdom of the purchase, when the Councillor took it upon him to administer a cas tigation to his brother members. However amusingMIr. Holwells attitude may appear to the on-looker, one is led to believe the arguments he adduced in support of his motion to rescind the purchase are powerful eno...
