WOOD'S FLAT DIGGINGS. [?] I am now enabled to givo you somo positive ?. information respecting this placo and its proapeota. Our population ia, I judge, sligbt'y on the increase, there being from 800 to 1000 personj now settled down.

In the alluvial ground, No. 1 East aro on payable gold, but I fancy that (hoy aro working in a very rough way, and wasting a deal of labour.

In looking through tho list of subscribers for the present year to tho Grenfell public hospital, wo do not notice any gentleman among them as would attest his namo to a communication of such a character as that of 'an old subscriber,' undor tho cover of another garb; so, therefore, upon that hypo* thesis we presume the writec of the letter is not a subscriber, but one of those agitators who has honored with his presence every gold field ...

(TO TUB BDITOB OP TUB HISIHG BBCOBD) DeabSib— On entering my club the other night, I found the members vehemently de baling tho Hospital question. It appeared oue of the meraboA had been charged the sum of £3 for fivo duys accommodation iu uiitteo, on being remoastrated with, gave their inhospitable ultimatum that every mem ber of 'the Gorman Club must pay £3 ad* mittance, and lCs per week, no matter whe. ther he bo accommodated for a day or two or a longer period. The members, of course, condemned tho uncharitable mandate. Thoy will pay what is right and fair, but not submit to extortion. It seems there is some thing rotten in tho management of the above institution— so.called a Hospital. The fact of tho establishment beiug iu debt, ought not to bo a pretext for imposition.
