CORRESPONDENCE. To the Jiditor of the Gipps Land Guardian. Port Albert, June, 1S56. Sir,—To a disinterested observer, nothing" is more amusing- than the extraordinary ground taken in many cases to found a claim for the support of the electors of this or that district, which Mr. A or B may desire to represent; where ; the found ation has any reference to fact, it may end in a little amusement, but where a pettyfogging pedling dealer in tin-pots and frying-pans,, not sufficiently honest to respect, the very land marks of his neighbour and predecessor, lays claim to honor founded on the rights of another, the sensation created is the reverse of amusing; such, Mr. Editor, is the case with one of the would-be-representatives of Alberton. The remains of one of the first vessels that visited Port Albert formed a beacon to this unblushing claimant, when he entered the Harbor with hispack of notions, the marked trees of liis forerunner, overland, met his gaze when he .first placed his foot o...
