WELLINGTON, November 4,
John Holland and Sons, of London, have forwarded specimens of goods made with New Zealand flax, to be shown at the Dunedin Exhibition—principally rope, twine, and matting. A letter in this morning's paper suggested that the Agent-General, instead of describing what is being done in the Bahamas (which was known months ago), should set himself to find out what flax is used for in. England and on the Continent, and elucidate a mystery which none of the producers have been able to fathom. The writer is backed up by the * New Zealand Times,' which thinks that the AgentGeneral, in this and similar Ways, might give the colony more substantial return for his salary than he has hitherto done.
