OUR LOCAL MEMBERS
Messrs. ZIERVOGEL and GRISBROOK, we understand, are to leave Graaff Reinet on the 15th February to commence their legislative duties in Cape Town. The former, it is said, aspired to the Speakership, in the event of Mr. BRAND accepting the vacant Puisne Judgeship, and had canvassed the members of the Lower House on his own behalf. The resolution of Mr. BRAND not to resign has, for the present at least, blighted Mr. ZIERVOGEL’s prospects of obtaining the office of Speaker. Without wishing to disparage Mr. ZIERVOGEL’s acknowledged talents and general usefulness as a member of the Lower House, we confess that we should be sorry to see him placed in the Speaker’s chair; and this opinion we know is entertained by many of his constituents.

NB Orders received in time will be punctually attended to
