There is entirely too much indiffer
ence to the subject of streets in our
town on the part of those in author
ity. The street south of Russell
etreet, and parallel to it, has been laid
out, aud yet it stands unopened, al
though it is said that money has been
offered to Council for the uecessary
work. It is also said that Judge
Glover offers a street connecting this
street with Russell, which we have
not heard of beiug accepted.
Dr. Webster also proposes, we be
lieve, to open two streets through tho
most available part of tho town; ono
to run from Mr. Copes', above Major
Whalcy'8, toward Sunny Side; and the
other to connoct this street with New
street neat the depot. A few thousand
dollars spent in this direction would
do more toward encouraging immi
grants, and building up our town, than
anything we could do. Let tho town
Council, and the owners ol property
interested; exercise a little energy in
Men go up to the tax offico and
pay out their twenties and hundreds of
their hard earnings, with scarcely an
expression r.of opposition, so accus
tomed have they become to injustice
and oppression. Tho thing might bo
more tolerable, if the taxes were any
where within bounds, or if they were
spent for some useful purpose; but
they are exorbitant and unjust?they
nre at least four or five times too
much, and after they are collected
they go in largo proportion to sup
port corruption, or, what is almost as
bad, to bolster up and keep nlivo the
fraud which floats under the guise of
free government. It is in tho power
of the farmers to stop this iniquity, if
they would only unite and act to
gether with the zeal and combination
that their enemies do.
