[Special to the Stab,]

WANGANUI, Octobers,

I can vouch for the correctness of the following paragraph in the ‘Wanganui Herald ’of this evening “We have been shown a letter from an engineer in England, which came out by the last mail, in which it is stated that the New Zealand Government had referred the question of the present state of the New Plymouth Harbor works to Sir John Goode, and that that gentleman had given an opinion to the effect that the prosecution of the work ought to be abandoned, and that the present work can only be used by constant and expensive dredging; and oven if this is done, the enormous quantity of sand which is ever being cast up may make it impossible to keep a narrow channel open inside of the present breakwater.”
