it is also true, that in rgard'to the building
of the road from this point to Bowling Green,
we have been in doubt as to which would be the
cheapest and eest, under all the cirstunstances,
a Plank or McAdamised road. West of Bowling
Green the Plank Road wonld be preferable, for
many reasons. The difficulty of obtaining sjone
throe eh the prairies, would be a serious impedi
ment to the construction of a McAdamised road,
whilst the absence of any great inequality on Xhe
surface of the land, would render easy and prac-
ticable the best grade for the Plank Road. It is
a well known fact, however, that stone and grav
el are abundant on the whole route from here to
Bowling Greenland a grade for a McAdamised
road could be made with less cost than that for a
Again: it seems to us that the rapid waters of
Ifoix Creek would always be an obstacle to the
permanency of the Plank, provided it were built
near the Creek, whilst the McAdamised road
might be constructed on the level land in the bot
tom, and the waters of the Creek could have but
little effect upon the stone.
But, yielding our preferences te the sense of
the majority, if a Plank Road be. preferred, we
shall lend our feeble assistance to the proposed
scheme. We desire the communication, and
seeing the necessity for it, Or the interests of
the community at large, we hope to see action en
the subject as early as possible. Now is the
time to commence die work. Let meetings be

It should be remembered that on the7thof
April next, it devolves upon our citizen s to elect
municipal officers. A Mayor and touncil are
to be elected, into whose hands re to be confi

tle interest is generally manifested. Let the
voters begin to cas around among our citizens

will consent to discharge the duties of their re

for consolation in the reflection that the
