TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— As these itinerant patriots will soon be amongst us for money, and the sooner they get it and go away quietly the better, would it be out of place to suggest our views of non-interference and toleration should be shown at intervals of the orations by a band alternately playing (as at a meeting of Mr Gladstone’s recently) ‘The wearing of the green,’ 1 God save the Queen,’ 1 Boyne Water,’ etc. ?

She must ever remain under the protection of England—her guardian angel equally true of ourselves—painted on a banner to adorn the platform.—l am, etc., New Zealander. Dunedin, August 7.
