POSTAL. SYDNEY, July 24. (Received Ju'y 24,1889, at 12.20 p.m.)

The Government propose to introduce legislation for the purpose of establishing parcels post, postal note, and pneumatio tube services. The Postmaßter-General has given notice of motion for Tuesday to this effect.


The Houso agreed to an extension of the San Francisco service for twelve months; the subsidy to be reduced to L 33.000, with a provision that if New Zealand hereafter joins the contract, or contributes in postages or subsidy any sum exceeding L 6,000, suoh excess, to the extent of L 3.500, is to go to the Union Steam Ship Company. New South Wales is to take two-thirds, and the company one-third of any American contribution. All postages will be retained by this colony, subject to an adjustment of a share with New Zealand, if the latter agrees to the extension. One of the conditions of the contract will be that only European crews shall be employed on the steamers.
