A BAD FOOTPATH.
To THE Editor.
Sir,-Will you kindly allow me a little space in the columns of your paper to call the at- tention of the councillors interested to the
disgraceful state of the footpath in Welling- ton-street, between Hill and Lord-streets. It has been in the state it is at present for the last twelve months, and while other paths are bring repaired which are not nearly so bad as the one I refer to, this particular one is passed over, for what reason I do not know. I may say without the least exaggeration, that it consists of at least twelve inches of beautiful sand, and it is quite a treat to wade ankle deep through this sand three or four times a day, as I have been in the habit of doing for the last twelve months on my way to and return from work. I think if one or two of the East Ward councillors were to visit this part of Wellington-street, and see the present state of the path I refer to, something would be done to place it in good order and not let it any longer an eyesore and a disgrace.
