TO THB EDITOB. Sir,—Kindly permit the publication oi an extract from a Wanganui letter just to hand:—"Everyone up this way is talking about your grand Exhibition, and all those who can possibly manage it are going down. A few have friends with whom they can stay, but the majority are prepared to take
*pot luck ’ and leave the question of accommodation for an afterthought. What immediately concerns them is the cost of passage ; and the comments generally made upon the Union Company’s published rates are that they are not sufficiently reduced. I cannot at present say what the railway fares between here and Wellington will be at that time, but L 3 10s for a * special Exhibition ticket ’ from Wellington to Dunedin and back is not considered much of a concession under the circumstances.”— lam, etc., Coastal. Dunedin, October 18.
