THE DISALLOWED PAYMENTS.
TO 188 EDITOK. Sjb,—l see by tho I^oroqgh Oponpll report c) that Mr Walker, M.Q.^,., h»a oondemned the cptlon of tbo And|torrr General In d"ua]lowlag the payment, oat of rates, of the £50 awarded to Mr Braddell as an " honorarium." Now, the impression la formed by many here that the object of the Government audit was to prevent the squandering of these raten by granting honoraria In any form, and I oannot help thinking the precaution a wlas and necessary one. If the principle Is admitted, that they can do as they like with tbe menay of tbe ratepayers, one oannot nee where it will end, 1 think if they hj>ve to pay fhla ampant theraselfei It will be a wlatoyy leiaon whloh they will not forget m a harry, and I trust Mr Walker will not interfere Id the dlreotion of undoing—whit the Aot woa evidently Intended to provide against —a reokleei tqqandtring of the nablio funds.—-I itn, etc , pHBTIOT.
