TO THIE E LDITOI QOF THE ,COLONIST. Stone Quarry, July 1, 1835. SiR:.-On passing Iazor Back last .Suiiday, I: was very much surprised at finding.t.he road from the brow of the hill actually, lined with straggling parties .from the. road gaig stationed there. Query- -What >are the .duties of. the, Police Magistrate, ,constables and .overseers, who .are placed there, and paid by government to keep these men together, and protect the property of settlers and others who are every day passing. i Your obedient Servant,: :A SETTLER. P. S. In my, opinion :if the said officers at-: tended more strictly to their duty, .robberies would be less frequent in that quarter. We are sorry to 'find that A `Settler., travels onz Sunday. It is a bad practice. The state of the road gangs,.- however, .on the Argyle road should be enquired into. A recently arrived, emigrant was robbed 'a few days ago on that road, and there is every reason to believe that the overseer of the gang stationed in 'the neigh...

' I am most unceremoniously introduced in'the Report, saying that I would not sacrifice the 's'o cial comforts of the many 'for the 'disorders of the few." True, but it was in corinection with the statement regarding the solitary drunkard (one of my church members), and that I should not for his sake consign to infamy' all the other temperate members, which would be opposed to an acknowledged principle...
