ýoiir5slolud1tuce. ; TO THIE EDijTOi - Snt,--With reference to your quotation from the ' Yass Courier,' in which Iam represented as saying that' the liarked=Tree Line without .expe ,diture, is as good as the present 'Boro road after all the money that has been- ex pended on it; I cannot plead guilty to . the folly, of having madi any such comparison, as suggested, between two routes which connect totally differeent loc1lities witl Guulburn.
