TO THE EDITOB. Sik,—Of late the ocean has been making very rapid inroads on the beach, and in a short time the esplanade will bo washed away ; but the more immediate danger ließ in that part facing the Racecourse Hotel, whero the end of the lagoon is now within a few feet of the road. The constant traffic over the sandhills there, together with the trampling of the racehorses, has so levelled them that there is now a free passage right through to the ocean. Such wanton destruction of Nature's barrier is simply suicidal, and the question as to what is to be done I must leave to those whose life and property are in danger; but in a very short time precautions will be unavailing.—l am, etc., Watchful. Dunedin, July 3.
