Oak Ridges.

A good deal has been said about the obstructions lately placed on the railway, and some have even gone so far as to insinuate who the guilty parties may be, and as the affair took place in our immediate neighborhood we beg to say a few words in defence of those on whom the blame was partly attached. It was remarked that some of the boys who were at Temperanceville on this night had been playing pranks, but we consider this remark altogether out of place as the whole thing happened during the interval of the absence of the boys.

We are certain that there are no persons in this vicinity who hold malice towards the Railway Co., and trust people will be careful in their remarks about things of this kind. It is to be hoped the guilty parties will be apprehended and examples made of them.
