The results' 'were, Driver 527, Cowan 431, Finn 121. Majority for Driver, 96. Considerable regret is expressed in this district, that, on account of the amalgamation of the offices of slationinaster, postmaster and telegraphist, we are likely to lose an old and highly respected resident, McKellar, who for nine years has ■giveia universal satisfaction in connection with his department, and by his uniform courtesy and kindness has endeared himself to a lairge circle of friends. The copious showers of the early part of the week have had a very beneficial effect on the grain crops and grass, and have Considerably brightened the prospects of the farmers which had been of late any.thing.but cheering.
