Owing to the want of postal communication between the town of Nelson and the Wairau, the day appointed for electing a member to represent that district in the General Assembly appears not to have been known to the electors, and no election therefore took place on the day in question, and a second notice has therefore been issued, appointing Thursday, the 6th of December for the nomination. This is the most striking commentary which could possibly be furnished on the past neglect of the General Government, which, through not remitting to the local authorities the money voted for this particular service by the House of Representatives, caused the mail which had been established to the Wairau to be discontinued. We have so repeatedly complained of the conduct of the Government in this matter, that it is useless now to refer to it further; but we hope the member for the Wairau, whoever he may be, will, in the next session of the assembly, see that his constituents are no longer excluded from the benefit of a postal communication.
An advertisement has appeared in our columns for the last fortnight, calling upon "all persons interested in the Cook's Strait Mining Company" to meet at the Court House on the 22nd instant, when " matters of importance " to their interests as proprietors in the Company are to be brought under their notice. We should not thus directly refer to this meeting, which will take place to-morrow, were it not that it sometimes happens that the time of holding such meetings is overlooked, and persons who purpose being present fail to attend. As the speedy and successful working of the Dan Mountain Mine is a matter of the greatest importance, not to the shareholders alone, but to the interests of the whole Nelson community, to call attention to the meeting, and to urge on all contributors to the Company to be present, becomes an act of duty. The more the mine is explored, the more does its surpassing richness appear to increase, and go to justify the predictions that the most complete success will attend its working. It would be a thousand pities, therefore, through indifference or apathy on our parts, that the most should not be made of the treasure which lies so. near at hand — a treasure which will not suffer by the comparison if weighed against a mine of gold. We trust, therefore, that all who have a right to be present at the meeting to-morrow, will not fail to attend.
