Mb. W. G. Bailey writes us as foUows: — In the telegraphio column of The Courier of 16th February appeared the foUowing telegram from "our own correspondent" at Maryborough: "A meeting has been convened at Tiaro for Saturday, to consider the advisability of asking Mr. Bailey, M.L.A., to resign his seat" As I could not imagine a reason for this, I wrote to a resident in Tiaro, asking for an explanation of the telegram. I wiU quote from his reply, whioh I only received this morning. "As to the tele gram which has appeared in the Southern papere, I vouch for ite incorrectness. Ab far as I can fathom, there has not been, as far as Tiaro is con cerned, Bueh a thing even mentioned." I should not have troubled you with this correction if the telegram only concerned myßelf. Twice in a few weeks I had met my constituents, and if they had wished to denounce me they certainly would not have waited until I had turned my back. Such conduct would have heen neither manly nor honorable, and very different from the fair play which I have always received from all classes in the Tiaro district. On their account, then, I ask you to insert this. [We have sUghtly abridged the telegram of Mr. Bailey's Tiaro friend where he deviates from statement of facts into matten of opinion.—Ed. Q-]
