TELEGRAPHIC HEWS. ? — «&= — BRITISH & FOREIGN London, February 15. I he irench press advocates an Anglo-French Alliance. M. Fleurens, Foreign Minister, ^stated in the French Chamber of De puties, that the General commanding on the Franco-Italian frontier, was engaged in inspecting the troops and defences under his control, and this had caused irritation in Italian offi cial circles.

CORRESPONDENCE. THE WELLINGTON ROADS BOARD CHAIRxMANSHIP. To the Edttoe 'Southern Advertiser, Sni; — In your report of the meet ing of the Wellington Roads Board of January 31st, there is an error which may mislead your readers. You make it appear that the full Board was present, which was not the the case, Mr. Hough being absent. . There were present Messrs. R. II. Rose, D. A. Hay, W. C. Ramsay, W. Gavin and J Trigwell aud myself. Mr Hose took the chair, of course to carry out the programme of the ad journed meeting, and. if for that pur pose Mr Rose had no right in the Chair. It also appeared from your report that I objected to Mr Hay being elected to the Chair, but I have no objection to Mr Hay or any other member as Chairman, but I do object to any of them being pitch forked into the chair contrary to the wishes of the majority of the Board. I take it that a chairman presiding receives the ballot or votes as the case may be, and when there is an equality of votes he gives his ca...

The despatches from the Se cretary of State for the Colon ies on the subject of llespon sible Government are now in the hands of the people of Western Australia, and though they are not altogether satis factory they are still sufficient to indicate the terms under ?which' a change in the Consti tution may be effected. On the one hand it may be very undesirable to jump at any conditions involving selfgov ernment that the Imperial au thorities may see fit to give us, while on the other the longer the country remains in its pre sent indefinite position the worse will matters be. With every department of the Go vernment retrenching in a manner altogether incompat ible with progress, and seri ously affecting 'the efficiency of the offices, with Public Works, authorised by the Le gislature, suddenly stopped, and others urgently needed shelved altogether, with others still, though completed, lying idle for the want of an extra pound expended, the...
