The Bill con taine eighty nine clauses, moast of which have undergone some change in Committee, and unless there is a general revision of the me& sure, it is very likely to turn out rank folly and nonsense. Changes and amendments have been introduced here and there; not in accordance with any pre-arranged and care. fully matured plan of amendment, but at the instigation of individual members, each one acting for -himself, and often indifferent as to' whether or not the chane affected`by him would harmonize with the other portions of the Bill.

Resignation of Councillor Stewart.- &nbsp; &nbsp; It will be seen on reference to our report of last Monday's meeting that-Councillor Stewart has resigned his seat in the Municipal Council of this town, and that Councillor Mason has been elected as a chairman in his stead for the remainder of the municipal year. We are aware that Mr. Stewartfor some time past his found the duties devolving upon him as a pub- lic man to interfere'"very much with his pri- vate business, and it appears that sooner than hold an office which he could fill to his &nbsp; own satisfaction, he determined to resign. This was a wise and proper course; but we regret the circumstance notwithstanding. for &nbsp; in Mr. Stewart's retirement from public life we lose an able and ardent supporter of our "model" municipality, and the service of a first-rate business man.

It has created quite a sensation at Tumut and Gundagsi, and many more are off in consequence I am told, on the most reliable autho-itv, that this'p...
