Answers to Correspondents. In reply to several correspondents who have expressed themseves very strongly on the matter of the unseemly disturbance at the late State school concert, we refer them to our remarks elsewhere. We also state that as far as we can we will en deavour to "covet no ones favor nor fear any ones frown" in our attempts to secure order at our public gatherings. "Jane " directs attention to the incon venience and annoyance caused to females especially by a crowd of young men per. sistently blocking up the approach to the up side of theNorth Brighton railway stat ion, as also the small gate near by on the footpath. This she writes is more par ticularly noticeable on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Doubtless this matter and another complaint from "Mater" who directs attention to the gangs of young men who for hours on Sundays stand about on the footpath in Bay street from Jenkins' corner to MeCaffrey's stables, will receive the attention of Sergeant Ryan and his staff ...
