"MIEND YOUR WAYS." T s TiHE EDITOR OF THE tINDEEEiDE'T. StR,--Everyone who has read your article in last Saturdays issue, its- to nending our ways, will agree with you that it is high time, something was done to improve our roads. It is simply a disgrace to the Cpuncil and its tficed, 'that a town so old as Footscray should be in so deplorable a condition.

M. Norris, one of the vice-presidents, occupied the chair, and after a few preliminary observa tions called on the president, the Rev. H. F. Scott, to open the debate. The rev. gentleman holds moderate views in relation to the opening of the Public Library, &e., and regretted the acrimonious discussion that had taken place on a subject which should not be dealt with hastily, and in which there was nothing gained by abuse and vituperation.
