OUR CITY. LETTER. (From Outi Coruespo^dent.) Perth, May 4th. News is very scarce this week, and since the Legislative Council termin ated its sittings there has been noth ing of any moment worthy of special notice. The newspapers here have enough to do to get matter for their columns, and the amount of 'pad- ding 'now going on shows the scarc ity of local items. During the last session Messrs. C. & E. Millar, the well-known contract ors on the Beverley- Albany line of railway, offered to lay a telegraph line from this colony to India and the proposal with very slight alterations was accepted. The line is to start north of Derby, so that, if the above named firm agree to the slight modi fications made by the Council we shall have a cable connection that will indeed be profitable to the colony. This scheme will be of the utmost importance, as it will bring West Australia into d'rect communication with Europe, and we shall also be the1 telegraphic mouthpiece for all the neighbo...
