THE PUBLIC LIBRARY.

TO THB EDITOR. Pia, — As I nee by yoar report of the meeting of thp Borough Oonnoll that Mr Williamson wants to make oat :h*t I have an animjalty against the, Council or ita officers, I must ask yon to allow mo io inform that gentleman that far from having an anlmua against either tbe OodQOll or ita offiodra. I, aome little time ago gave great credit to the librarian for the orderly way ia which the papers were kept, and remarked that it was a great improvement ou the old style. lam not personally known to any of the members of tbe Coonoll, its ohiof, or its cffioare. I never at aay time spoke to any of them or they to me, consequently I onnot aee where the aulmus comes io. Animus o; no auimus, the faot etill remains that the reaiing room had vary often been left in total darkneia for eomo considerable time. There are othera *ho o^ntestlfy to that faot if they oho aa to do io', I don't aay that the Librarian it altogethee to biame for tbe late arrival of the English periodicals, bat I mast say that he, knowing, this ought to have roused up the agents. The' last "English Meohanlo " made its appearance five days i after the arrival of the mail. In oonorasion, 1 eh o aid. like Me Williamson to give me a reason why a servant of » pnbllo body should not do his work the same aa any servant belonging to a private firm. — Yours and etc., Gas.
