TO THE EDITOB. Sir,— There seems to be some grounds for alarm if Mr G. P. Clifford's statements are true, and I see no aeason for doubting them until they are found false. At any rate I fail to see what would be his object in writing if he had not good grounds for his assertions ; it stands to reason that he would not waste his time writing in this persistent manner for nothing. I think that if there is any danger now is the time; for, when the snow melts on the hills, and if there happens to he a good fall again, the inflow will bo considerably augmented. Then, I say, let a petition bo got up and presented—not to the City Council (for as it shows such apathy in the matter let it bo treated with contempt)—but to the Government; then, perhaps, something will be done.—l am, etc., Salus, Dunedin, June 21,
