SUPPLY OF WATER TO THE TOWN
From the tenor of the answer received by the District Council, in reply to the memorial, addressed by them to His Excellency, seeking a sum of money being placed on the estimates, for the purpose of affording the Town, a full and sufficient supply of pure water, there are hopes that this great boon will be eventually obtained. The communication states that the pressing demands on the Colonial Revenue, prevented any sum being placed on the Estimates this year, and a subsequent paragraph having reference to the complaint of the pollution of the water, at present used by the inhabitants, through the drainage from the Factory, Hospital and Gaol, gives fair ground to believe that the session of 1848, will not pass over without something being done in the matter.
