SALE., .i[FROM,,ANIOCCASIONAL':CORRi!SPONDENT.l ■ The past .week ihere has been one of universal excitement, gaiety, and festivity. < - On Monday, Mr. Thomson, of Clycle Bank, entertained a numerous company of friends at an evening- party; there were upwards of sixty .present at-supper, and the galaxy of beauty and ; refinement assembled would have graced a similar gathering in any part of ,'IIer .Majesty's dominions. . , t ,, The music, was well chosen and excel-, lently conducted, and the dancing never ■flagged until lialf an hour before daybreak. . , I should not omit to mention.that the dance of the evening w«& the justly celebrated Scotch Reel,.it ,\vas positively irresistible, and, I believe, 'could not, linve been better performed, and..; thev quick, buoyant, yet .graceful . movement,coupled with the inspiriting notes of the violin and piano, suggested the idea, t.hat perfection, ■ m this -dance, at least,;was a propensity (if I may be allowed the expressio...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. Port Albert, 1st Oct., 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 10 October 1856

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. Port Albert, 1st Oct., 1856. . Sin,—In your paper of last week* there appeared a letter signed " A Contractor," and headed " How the road Contracts are managed in Gipps Land!" In justice to myself, and in order to set the public right, I feel called, upon to reply to the remarks contained in that letter as far as concerns myself. . The first thing worth noticing, is, in reference to my being allowed the unusual facilities of taking-stuff out of the side drains, and of laying on mud and loam in place of sand, as - specified in the Contract. Now, "A Contractor" must have known that the Contract specified that the side drains were to be properly cleared, and if he had taken the trouble to make a personal inspection (as he gratuitously invites the public to do) he would have satisfied himself that no more stuff has been taken out of the side drains than to put them 111 proper order.. From the nature of the stuff in the drains, th...

There' is a nett' increase in the General 'Revenues of , £250,511 on the year, and of' £110,980 on, the quarter.
