To the Editor,
Sir, —From the terms of your remarks about the Courthouse, you appear to credit the story which has reached you, and lest my constituents should do the same, I desire to inform them that your story is a false one. No plans for a brick Courthouse were about to be undertaken by the Public Works Department. The building in course of erection will cost considerably more than the sum voted for it, is upoi the same scale as that at Greymouth, and will afford .all reasonable accommodation ; and I venture to think that the public generally are quite sick of the extravagant and unproductive expenditure that has been lavished upon all classes of public buildings during the last throe or four years. —I am, &c., Edward G. Weight. Windermere, 19th June 1830. [We are glad to give publicity to Mr. Wright’s denial of the story as it reached us, and have sent a copy of his letter to the place whence our information came. —Ed. H.] ___________
