FORTY-FOUR YEARS AGO TO-DAY

(From the Dunedin ' Evening Star,' December 4, 1870.) Fublio opinion at Invercargill seems to favor Mr Mncandrew's action in regard to public works. Great dissatisfaction is expressed at the delay in the payment of the liabilities of the late Province. * ***#*# .Ttidgo Grcsson, in opening the criminal session at Christ church, said to the grand jury: I have been examining the criminal records of the Province for the lastfour years, and it is satisfactory to find.that since 13G7 crime has'not been increasing. . . . The crimes most common are larceny, obtaining property under false pretences (generally by means of valueless cheques), forgT.v, and embezzlement—all of which, in most instances, are traceable to tho excessive use of intoxicating liquors. I have reason to think, however, that this fruitful source of crime is decreasing, and that further decrease may be.looked for from the efforts being made for more widely diffusing the benefits of education. At Dunedin, however, Mr Justice Chapman struck quite a different note, saying : On the two former occasions I was enabled to congratulate tho grand jury and the country at large upon the very small amount of crime presented for trial before the Supreme Court. 1 am sorry to say that on this occasion I cannot repeat the same congratulation. . . . The increase consists for the most part of crimes either of violence or of a grievous character—crimes of the ordinary kind against property being about the same ns on the last occasion. It transpired that Captain A ml Icy Coote was the representative of' the English syndicate who were prepared to build what railways the Province required on the basis of a guarantee of oi per cent, for a term of not less than 35 years. In accordance with the captain's suggestion, the Provincial Government brought down an amending ordinance empowering them to grv"* a guarantee of fli par cant, for S3 years. The Colonial Treasurer arrived at the Port this morning by the Taranaki, and on arrival was welcomed by tho Mayor and borough councillors, the Speaker and several members of the Provincial Council, as well as by a number of praaguU friends. The Naval Brigade salute q{. seven {juas* fexu their

battery. Mr Vogel inspected the local cadets, and complimented them on their smart appearance, saying that the Government viewed with groat satisfaction the progress of the volunteer movement in Otago. At the luncheon in his honor at the Provincial Hotel (Mr M'Dermic", M.P.C., presiding) the Treasurer dealt at length with ocean mail matters, saying: Ho had had some small share in procuring tho construction of tho dock at Port Chalmers, and he nowfelt glad, as it was the precursor of the future prosperity of the Port. He was also glad to say that early in March they would have at their port the pioneer vessel of the United States, Australian, New Zealand, and European mail service; and it. remained simply for the General • Assembly to arrange for its continuance for three or ten years, which he had no doubt would be done. He had anticipated that the news of that service would have been received with unmixed satisfaction, but when ho looked in the newspapers for a reflex of public opinion he was disappointed bv seeing mi expression of disapprobation. ("It is only the 'Daily Times,' " from several present.) That, however, was nothing to the point, for it marked out for Now Zealand a great future. It would make this Colony the highway to the East. He did not, therefore, speak simplv of Otago. . . .It was now in the hands of this Province to make Port Chalmers a large nud important place. The contractors said that if there were proper conveniences for repairs and other necessary works they should prefer to have them done in Otago, on account of labor being cheaper here than m San Francisco.
