1 The people of Carcoar, ;wb» have already earned the reputation of being a long suffer ing community, have certainly a good cause of complaint, if we may give due credence to what has been stated by their local repre sentatives, the Borough Council, and the Prbgr^ Committee. Ocular. demonstration proves the fact of the roads and bridges in our immediate neighborhood lieing in a very disgraceful condition 'of repair, arid in several places . even -dangerous to the lives of travellers, and it is consequently evident to . the public/ iat'Jeast; tb&t, commendation is' deserved by those bodies for drawing atten tion to such a state of affairs, instead of the cavalier manner, and even snubhish style, in which they tiave.jbeen treated' ty ^3ie Road Superintendent for the -district. - Indeed, it seegis;;toiu^,.fron) .the. correspondence .we*: have rcud'on '$e Subject, that Mr Scaiib fully fancies himself lord aud master of the public instead of #s paid slrvank with dutfesand respon...

Con sequently a considerable proportion of the vote for the last three years h;is been expended on the ten miles at the Orange end. At the same time, I think the Carcoar people have very little to complain of, as there has been, since I took charge of the road in 1879, expended within ' five miles...
