I -va glad to be able to congratulate yon on tbe fact that tbe plans of the first section of the Caiins-Herberton railway were approved by the Legislative Assembly last week. It is to be hoped that the contract for its con- struction will be let before Christmas, and that the survey of the second section will at once be proceeded with, so that the work may be pushed, on and the line completed by the end of lS-SS. There is no railway. in the colony from which so much is expected as from this one. The plans of the Beauaraba bianch line off the" Southern and Western line haye'also been .approved of. - The con- tractor for the construction of the second section of the Highfields branch line from Cabarlah to dow's Nest has declined to sign the contract, and consequently fresh tenders are to be invited for that woik.
