To the Editor of the Launceston Advertiser. Sir. — I beg to relate to you a singular adven- ture which I experienced lately ; -and which if you think fit, you are at liberty to give a place in your paper. I am fond of occasionally walking in the night     season, when many are enjoying the sweet bless ings of rest. Conformably to my habits, one night I was walking in the neighbourhood of the Veteran's cottages, when a storm rather unexpec tedly arose. I raised my hood and curled myself   up under the stump of a tree. The wind blew   with tremendous violence, and continued to rise higher and higher for about ten minutes. The whole of nature seemed in confusion. This was accompanied by a great noise, similar to that produced by a scene I once witnessed in a village   in the Pays Bays, when a French cavalry regiment   was surprised by a horde of no-quarter-giving cos sacs ; and who considering with Falstaff, ...

' The economy which he wished to see carried ? into effect was this—that when the patronage oC Government was concerned, there should ^be scarcely any limit to~wh1ch retrenchment should not be carried f but w.here the public service was concerned, and efficient and able men were re* quirvd for ifs due^performance, economy should only be a secondary consideration.
