The Inspector- General of Polico to tho Prin cipal Under Secretary. Police Department, Inspector- General's Office, Svdnev, 15th August. 1887. ' Sir, — In compliance with tho Colonial Sec retary's desire, I have tho honor to roport for his information that I have inspected tho uito and premises of tho ' Woolpneklnn,' at Par ramatta. If it be intended to csrect a new Courthouse iu that town, the site is central and suitable ; but I conclude that a portion of tho present premises would have to be romovod, to afford sufficient space for tho new building, as tho inn is only about' 75 feot from the main froutago. The buildings contaiu extensive ac commodation, far in excess of any re quircmont of this Dopurtmont, but arc considerably out of repair. Tho stabling, however, is very good. Tho present Polico Barracks are in need of such considerable ro pair.s that I am inclined to think tho cost would bo greater than that of ereoling new promises. Tho Lock-up, adjacent to the Courthouse, is n...

First, then, as to tho proposal for absence of tho officer in charge of tho 'works. If ho feels it would be good thing for him to bo bettor in formed than he is in regard to the matter, it seems wrong on tho face of it that ho should not bo allowed to go in search of information ; and in the interests of townspeople, I would say by all menus let him go and pay his ex penses. Again, in regard to the quality of tho water. 1 venture to say that a correct, honest analysis, if made at tho present time, would show that tho Parramatta water was not only almost, but quite ' potable ' — which I suppose means, scrvioable, good, useful water — in fact equal to the supply iu most places.
