To the Editor. Sir,—Allow me to correct an error in your issue of the 11th, stating that “The new County Waterworks Bill introduced by the Hon. W. S. Peter in the Upper House passed its second reading last night.” This is quite erroneous; the Bill was introduced by the Hon. George Buckley at my request, and the Hon. W. S. Peter strongly opposed it, though unsuccessfully. The Bill has passed through Committee, though in a sadly mutilated form. It will, however, enable the Council to make a commencement, and steps will have to be taken to secure a more complete Bill being passed next session. I am, &c., Edward G. Wright. Wellington, 12th Dec., 1879.
