TO THE EDITOR. Mr Editor,--- Will you or any of the readers of the Age tell me the amount of variation of the magnetic needle from the true north and south points in this country ; and also explain that property which causes the magnetic needle to lie along the plane of the meridian ? AN INQUIRER. ° The vicissitudes attending the occupation of mining in this colony have often furnished a fruitful topic for journalists to descant upon.

The truly grateful heart may not be able to tell the gratitude, but it can feel, and love and act, lie who sends an anonymous letter is not only guilty of cowardly meanness but shows that his conscience condemns the act. There is no fear of knowing too much, though there is great fear of practising too little.- The most doing man shall be most knowing man.
