MUNICIPAL INSTITUTIONS.
PENRITH.

His Excellency the Governor General, with the advice of the Executive Council, has directed the publication of the substance of a Petition to His Excellency as hereinafter set forth, presented on the 4th instant, and signed by three hundred and seventy-five Householders and Electors in the Police District of Penrith – such Petition being in opposition to a Petition previously presented from the same locality, and Gazetted on the 18th July last.

CHARLES COWPER.

The Petitioners state, that they are opposed to the erection of the District of Penrith into a Municipality, as prayed for by a Petition said to be signed by two hundred and fifty-two electors and householders of the said District: because,

First. – That a number of the signatures to the said Petition were attached under erroneous impressions, and now appear attached hereto.

Second. – That a considerable number of the signatures to that Petition are null and void, those signing not being householders, and in many instances duplicate signatures of the same parties are appended, as can be proved on scrutiny, if necessary.

Third. – That the population being almost wholly concentrated in the Towns of Penrith, St. Mary’s, and Villages of Castlereagh and Emu, it is manifest the larger properties, which are sparsely scattered over it, would be taxed to provide funds for expenditure in the formation of streets and ways, and the roads and bridges connected with them, though such are comparatively useless to the outlying portions of the District, from whence they would be principally paid for; thus abolishing the principle of taxation by representation.

And the Petitioners pray “That the Police District may not be created a Municipality within the meaning of the Act passed by the Legislature
