The following circular has been addressed to tho Collectors of Customs: —

Wellington, 3rd Soptombcr, 1889. As tho intention of Circular 526 has not been rightly under-tood by those who have not lad tho opportunity of reading it in connection with Circular 518, General Order 98 and section 54, whence, as yi,u know, the words "apparently accidental omission, etc.," are quoted, tho Commissioner has instructed me to siy that it was to meet the case of so-called " mistakes'' that are really, although possibly unintentionally, offences against the law by which the importers would benefit if undiscovered to the prejudice of the revenue and other importers. "Post entries" may be accepted as usual in all c»bcs of merely oletical errors, or obvious miutakes, discoverable on the face of an entiy. You will be so good as to explain this to importers and agents, and point out to them that all depends upon themselves, and that they Lave nothing to fear so long as ordinary caro is taken in correctly making out entries; also, that whenever in doubt about any article, the marking of the words "for examination" against if. i.n the entry will be sufficient protection. H, S. M'Kellak, Secretary and Inspector
