Published Ecory Wodnaidai/ and Saturday. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 81, 1801. We are pleased ' to ' state that the last 'Government Guzbtto' contains the announcement that a Post-ofilce will be opened nt Flowerdalo on March 2, under tho management of Mr. George Nichols. This accommodation has been greatly needed for a long time past by tho largely increasing number of settlers in tho Flowerdalo district. Hitherto residents have had to go -to Wynynrd for their mails, n distance of from five to seven miles from different narts of Flowerdule, and we are sure thoy will greatly appreciate the boon conferred upon them. There is another settlement or' Buburb near Wynyard that is entitled to some consider ation in this respect also, and that is the Mount Hicks Boad. Settlement is increasing rapidly there and the residents are entitled to a bi-weekly or tri-weekly mail service. Wo-\vouia- suggest that a petition, setting forth the claims of the district to a Post office, be taken round for signature...

The Stanley Jetty. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times and Agricultural and Mining Gazette — 21 February 1891

The Stanley Jetty. (TO THE EDITOR.) Sir, — In your issue of 18th inst., appears a letter from 'Cato' on ..our Tasmanian timber condemning the same for piles, and recommending jarrah wood or- red gum. Surely the writer does not know the value of our Tasmanian peppermint for piles. I know from personal observation that in 1874   the George Town -jetty was being recon- structed and there were several peppermint, piles drawn to make room for the new ones. The piles had been in the work for 28 years and were as sound as the first day they were driven. No marine or 'pile worm' had touched them, whereas stringy bark piles, that had only been in 4 years, were eaten through ; in fact they were honeycombed. There were also some swamp gum piles in fair order, but none like the peppermint. Another piece of work, the old Bridgewater bridgo, is built of our Tasmanian piles and without I am greatly misinformed has stood the test some 60 years.- I, therefore main- tain, that if the pil...
