Ou* Railway Commbnica/tion. — Our reaJi will learn with much aatirfaction from our reports of the meeting* of thV Town Council and of the Chamber, of CommercV that this subject is receiving an attention from ottr public men that it has not attracted for Lome years p«t. The Swindon and Karl borough line offering the town an opportunity lor"6pening a direct communication with the manufacturing districts that if missed, may not be proffered to us again for years. We invite our readers careful attention, therefore, to what has transpired on the subject, and hope they will give^their hearty support to the Mayor and our Conservative representative, Mr. Alfred Giles, who are heartily aiding the town in this matter. Attchdance at the public meeting called for the UthiniL, should not be eglected. Unless we are prepared to help ourselves in tfie, matter we can ..hardly ask for extraneous aid.
Thk Vacasct is All Saimts* Ward.—For the vacancy caused iu the representation of this Ward, through the greatly lamented death Of Mr. A.'L. McCalmont, the ex-Mayor, there are two candidates before the burgesses. Mr. F. H. Candy, who contested the Ward on the I at of November, has issued an address, again proffering his services, and as be would certainly be a worthy successor to the gentleman whose logs we all deplore, we trust he will be elected. His opponent is Mr. J. H. Cooksey, a gentleman who was supposed to have retired from an active participation in municipal affairs. Mr. Candj'a merits are of a high order, and the burgesses will do themselves credit, and the town very good service by sending bhn to the Council Board.
