Should you again honour me by returning me one of your Representatives, I beg to assure you that I will continue to devote my best energies to the promotion of those interests with which we are mutually identified.

GENTLEMEN,—On the Second of Novem- ber YOU will be called upon, in the exercise of your Municipal rights, to elect Men to represent YOUR. interests at the Council Board of this Borough. Many of your number who last year thought I should be useful to you in such capacity, have again expressed their desire that I would offer myself for Election, to fill one of the Seats which will then become vacant. In complying with that desire, I beg to assure you, that, if returned, I shall continue to pursue that line of public conduct which, on the occasion before alluded to, received so large an amount of approval. I am credibly informed that it has been stated that, in consequence of my name having been omitted from the Burgess List, I am not eligible. This renders it necessary for me to refer to the clause in the Act of Parliament, which states that in order to be qualified for Election as a Councillor, the Name of the Person must be either on OR ENTITLD TO BE ON the List of Bur- gesses. Being in a position to prove that I am so en- titled, I am advised that I am eligible. I remain, Gentlemen, Your obedient, faithful servant, W. GRAHAM, JUN. Newport October 15th, 1857.

I need scarcely inform you that I am deeply interested in the prosperity of the Borough, with the Import Trade of which I am intimately connected, and the extension of which it will be my study to promote, believing that it will be advantageous to all parties. If you do me the honour of electing me one of your Representatives, I will, to the best of my ability, strive to secure both economy and efficiency in the government of the Borough, and will at all times speak and vote independently, and for the general welfare.
