OUR COAL FIELPS. No. 2, TO THE EDITOB OF THE MERCURY. Sie,-Having in my last letter on this subject alluded to tho fact of Sir n. Do la Beebo having pronounced the anthracite from Adventure Bay to have been the best Bpocimen of all tho Coals sent froiji fliis colony for analysis by Sir William Denison ; and that tho coal Holds pn thin side ' of the Island wore of anthracitic character ; it is im- portant that tho yaluo and usos of anthracite coal should bo generally understood.

EVENING SITTING. ; '. HOBART TOWN WATER BILL. j' Mr. CHAPMAN said that the discussion which had taken place shewed that the Attorney-General had done his utmost to dojustice to the Corpora- tion ; at the same time if that body should be put to any additional expense, it was only fair that they should be reimbursed from the General Revenue, and, therefore, at the proper time ho would give notice of motion to that effect. The ATTORNEY-GENERAL said his feelings were so entirely opposed to this course that ho must move that the Chairman report the Bill with amendments. Bill reported; and on motion that the report bo adopted, Mr. CHAPMAN moved that the adoption of the report be postponed for further consideration. The report was then adopted, and third reading of the bill fixed for Thursday. MR. JOHN MORGAN.

COMPENSATION UNDER THE WATER ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 13 September 1860

COMPENSATION UNDER THE WATER ACT. The Corporation of Hobart Town have proposed the insertion of a clause in tho Water Bill making the General Itevenue liable for compensation, the right to which may be established under the clause inserted by the House of Assembly at the instance of Mr. ALLvoRT.counsel for the Messrs. Degraves. Tho principle upon which the propriety of this clause was assented to, was the obviously equitable one that private interests ought not to be allowed to suffer in consequence of acts of neglect or irregularity on the part of the government. It was proved that official negligence and dolay had oper- ated to place the Messrs. Degraves in a position of disadvantage, and to rectify this admitted wrong tho House gave them an equitable claim to compensation in case their property should be invaded. It certainly appears plain enough that the party by whom this compensation is made, should not be the City of Hobart which is in no sense or degree responsible for the w...

MUNICIPALITY OF GLAMORGAN. TO THE EDITOB OF THE MERCURY. Sir,-I have read John Mitchell's Letter in the Mercury of the 3rd instant, and being somewhat implicated iu the censure contained therein, re- quest tlwt space may be allowed me to set the Municipality in its true position before the public In doing this, I will foUow tho course the latter has taken, and state that the Warden's (glowing) letter was addressed to W. R. Allison, M.H.A., in reply to a letter of lite. It was written off-hand, In an easy stylo, and was published without re- ference to the Warden ; but on tho whole it is per- haps well : the publio have a genuine articlo, un- studied, and not dressed up to produce any mere, tricious effect. Quite unexpectedly to myself I went to Swansea after the letter was written, when the Warden opened the envelope and read the letter to me. I made some, remarks thereon proposing a few altera- tions or explanations which the Warden said he would look to, but I expect he had no tim...
