TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l, along with a great many others, have been put to a great deal of inconvejj nience, and perhaps might lose our situations, through the running of some of the trains. For instance, the Fort Chalmers and Dunedin trains : the first one leaves at 7.5 a.m., and on Saturday morning last did not arrive till after 8 a.m., being fully one hour on a journey of some eight miles ; and, as a rule, the first train does not arrive at Port Chalmers till five or ten minutes to 8 a.m. If the train arrived at say half-past seven or twenty minutes to 8 a.m., it would give workmen a chance to get to their various places by 8 a.m, ; and, surely, by j leaving at even 7 a.m. they could easily arrive at their destination in time.—l am, I etc., Sufferer,
Port Chalmers, June 29.
