A ciiATStvoBTn correspondent writes in tho B..3L Herald : — Tho proposed new entrance to the Olaronco, a report of which appeared in print, is a very reasonablo schomo, and has many points in ijis favor. An expert many years ago made a similar suggestion in regard to tho Eich mond. For myself, I havo always hold that a northern breakwater to form a north head was our only hopo to koop back beach sand, and, although this work has only commenced, it keeps back this sand, and af tor tho flood eornotiine ago it allowed tho southorn training- wall to bo put down across the channol, in which tho steam ers previously ran. Had not tho northern breakwater been commenced, the southern inner wall would havo beon our sore troublo before this. However, the work that should have been completed first may not ba attended to in our time, while the wall two or three miles long, which is killing timo, is being built.
