To the Editor of The Heraldd. SIR, Vasse correspondent~ of the Inquirer, retorts on my.lelter, not in that generous candour which replying measure for measure, commands respect to adverse opinion, but rather after the fashion of the denizens of Billinsgate, who brooking no contradiction, make up in virulence what may be wanting in right, and bespatter with inire what they cannot master in the fair contest of reason.* The influence of the press on civilization, the intellectual activity it calls forth, and the Smarvels of progress it spreads on every side are old familiar facts. In proportion that the power of a free press has been valued, so common con sent has hedged it in with well understood re strictions, giving full scope for the action and * Although the Editor of the Inquirer has with creditable good taste suppressed the letter and thereby restricted its publicity so far as.he_ now can, still it has appjeared ir the special issue. 4.p Saturday last ang therefore demands nbtic...

The post office is at last to be removed to the townsite, which is a great boon both to the Dandalup and Pinjarrah inhabitants, indeed I may say to the whole district, being directly op posite the Court House. Mrs. Sutliffe, who is well known to many in Fremantle, istobe thenew postmistress; she is a striving hard working -oman and I believe will give general satisfac n. The office was not removed for any error on the part of the late Postmistress but for the public convenience, that being so, and Mrs. M?Larty having held the office for six and twenty years she is justly entitled to some com pensation.

To the:;Editor of the Herald. SIR,- HIaving read with some degree of interest the debates in the Legislative Council on the Survey Department, I was confirmed in my former opinion, that a differefit system of education, from that already persisted in, ought at once be adopted by the Educational Board. Isit not deplorable to think, that *ith '0ui . great supply of so-called School Masters in the Colony, the enormous sums voted for educational purposes, and .the number of surveyors and .draughltsmen ambngst u'se,weare still compelled.to i send to other countries for additional Surveyors.

There was a terrible wind abroad. ;It came down the valley in a great, resistless wave, with an awful, thunderous roar; then it wound about among the recesses of the hills;,and whistled shrilly in the rooky gorges, or sat in the tree-tops, sighing and sobbing, Above, the sky was inky black. Afar, off a light twinkled faintly, like a flickering star, sometimes quite lost in the gloom; near by them was a red: glow from the window of the little station-house. The surly sleet flew in drifts before the wind; the' crystal parti cles glittered upon the window-panes. Cecil Ramsay thought of her drive to Winterslow, and shudderedol. But why did not some one come to meet-her ? Wras there...
