Sxi,-NMay I ask is it tile wish of the rate payers that Mr Moon should be dismissed from hispushtion of Shire 'Socretiiry, or is it merely a move of some clique to make room for a pot hanger-on, or only by way of ro trenchment? Tha' t the present secretary has devoted much, if not all, of his thne to the interest of the rat payers no one cm. deny. Why should lho therefore he put on me side P II this is done. it is an oct of gross injustice ; for, as one of the cotlncillors remarkoe, ilt is because he has not learned to creep and crawlito certain persons, then the ratepayers shoull see to it. He is not paid as mulch as a day laborer for what he does, and the mast sensible step the council as a body should take is most decidedly to retain Iis services and give him another fifty pounds a year ; for if one is to take the note made...

PI-O-NIC AT EILDON. (BY ONE PRESENT.) One of the grandest and most sue oessful pie-nics ever held in this district was given on Thursday, the 17th inst., by Mlr George Whiting, of Eldon. The place selecred for the rendezvous was on the banks of the Goulhurn, near that Lgentleman's residence, and thuther from early morn till late in the evening a continuous stream of people might have been seen proceeding; they came from every direction. Doran's coach ran all day from Alexandra, while whole crowds of ladies and gentlomen on horseback and in buirgies poured in from MolPeworth, Whatlregarwen, Acheron, and Thornron. At dusk there could not have been much less than 150 people on the ground, and these included some of the most influential residents of Alexandra and the sur rounding districts. Despite the fearful heat of the day the pio.nic was a thoroughly enjoyable one, and, judging from the expressions of approval that I heard, everyone seemed well satisfied with the whole affair, the g...

Sqn tand & e btan dard PUULISlUED EVERY BATURoDA SATURDAY, 6Tru JANUARY. Tun speech delivered by the Chief Secretary at Geelong on Monday last contained material perhaps more dam aging to the Ministry of which he is the head than any number of philippics that could be uttered by his opponents, because it was so full of inconsistencies and absurdities as to carry its own condemnation on the surface to the mind of any ordinary intelligent and dispassioned observer. It is quite unnecessary that we should follow Mr Berry through the torrent of invectives which he poured out upon the head of the Legislative Council, or that we should take the trouble to expose the falsities, sophistries, and misrepresenta tions of whioh he was undoubtedly guilty in that part of his address, be cause even although all he had said on that head was as undeniably true as it was in m'ny instances the reverse, it would in no way serve as a basis for his conclusions, or give any logical sequence to the ...

The number of wandering pins is increasing, and, with the goats, ravage and destroy everything they can get it. A stranger entering the township by the U.Tr. bridge, and walking up Grant street, would regard Alexandra as the tllthiest town ship in the colony. Ile would be first met by the sernchl fiom the sewmer on the left hand side, and next by the grease bloiling flavor oh the right. On a still hot night the air in Grant and Bllf ley streets is laden with the nmdors fronm clostts and cesspits which have not been cleined for years.
