NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS.
Mk. Wood's letter on the Auckland Catholic Institute should have appeared before this, but the pressure on our space rendered its insertion next to impossible. It ii now somewhat out of date, and therefore our esteemed correspondent will excuse us for letting it atide. Mr. Thomas Allen, Tauranga, writes to us complaining that the Bay of Plenty Steam Navigation Company compelled him to pay|for carrying bis luggage. He thinks passengers ought to be allowed 10 many feet of luggage free ; and if we understand him right, that the Company should be held liable for any loss or damage to such luggage We presume the passer.ger ticket sets forth the conditions which bind the Company ; and as common curriers they are subject to the provisions of the law affecting such concerns. The letter itself is inadmissible, because it travels wide of the point, and makes somewhat ungracious comment on the management. We sincerely trust the Company's affairs may be well and economically managed, and that it will prore a profitable speculation to the proprietors, as it undoubtedly is an immense convenience to the Bay of Plenty settlements. Several letters to the Editor are in type, and will hare early insertion. We have to request correspondent* to be brief -in their om> munications, during Parliament.
