Liberal

Mr. CASGRAIN:

A post office has not yet been opened at Wrentham, and therefore the office has not been closed. Complaints were made against the person nominated as postmaster; but on inquiry no evidence was adduced to sustain the charge, and shortly afterwards he left the locality. Another nomination has been made, and the office will be opened immediately.
