[Pkk United Prkhh Ab.sooja7lon.] WELLINGTON, Auuvkt !>. An inspection of Government Building* discloses the fact that there arc two lartto cesspools which arc only cleaned out once every two years. The inspector of nuisances considers this state of things dangerous, and recommends that Government be compelled to remove them! The,re will be nearly 2,000 candidates for the first grade art examination of the primary schools in the Wellington district. Last year there were 1,250. The fault in the cable, for which the Sherard Ooborne is searching, is a slight leakage, caused presumably by the casing of the wires having corroded. It is not serious at present, but if unattended to would probably cause complete interruption in a few month?. It is difficult to locate the leakage, because as soon as tho cable was lifted the defect disappeared. The Sherard Osborne has now cut the cable, and the Wellington end is buoyed while she is groping for the other. The weather was very rough yesterday, and interfered with the work. It is to these two circumstances combined that the long interruption is believed to be due.
