Opawa Bridge. ALL HEAVY TRAFFIC over the Opawa Bridge is STOPPED, until further notice. Cyrus Goulter, 659 Provincial Secretary. To the Electors of the District oi Wairau. •71 ENTLEMEN.— I ftm not a little V.^ surprised at the political changes which have taken place, and regret that my absence m England has prevented me from taking a part therein. The imperative reason which almost compelled my leaving the Colony for a short time, will be still m your memory ; nor will my constituents forget for how many years I have borne a large share of the burdens, as well as devoted myself to the interests of the Province, and I feel confident that they will not begrudge me the brief respite I have enjoyed. The days are not many ere I shall be again among you, and I now address you to bespeak again your vote and interest for my return, as member for Wairau m the next Parliament, when, be well assured, your own interests and those of the Colony m general, will receive my earnest consideration. The great measure of Provincial Abolition I look upon as an accomplished fact ; b\it I conclude that the equally important question of reconstruction, so as to give the largest measure of local self-government, with efficiency of administration, remains to be decided by the next Parliament. Looking forward with pleasure to a meeting which I propose to call on my arrival m the Province, and which I trust may not be prolonged beyond the first week m January, I shall then review the past with you, and trust to assure myself of your confidence m me for the future. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, 058 . a. p. Seymour!
