    In April last the Hon. R. D. Ross, M.P., and Mr. R. Homburg, M.P., members for the District of Gumeracha, presented a memorial to the Commissioner of Crown Lands signed by about 160 miners and others at Watts Gully, pointing out that James Watts and Gustav de Boursier had prospected and opened up the goldfield now known as Watts Gully, thereby giving employment to numbers of men, and praying that the services thus rendered to the colony by them might be recompensed by the Government by the award of such sum of money as a bonus as the Government might deem fit. The memorial was referred to the Surveyor-General, who passed it on to Mr. Hack, the Warden of Goldfields, for his report. Mr. Hack's report is as follows: — ' James Watts and Gustav de Boursier have been prospecting goldminerals for the past four or five years, and have been working in the locality known as Watts Gully for some time past, and were found through being watched after having sold some gold to a storekeeper. The opening of this goldfield has given employment to from 300 to 400 people during the past two months, and has thereby relieved the labour market at a time of great depression. The reason these men did not make public this discovery was that there was no inducement held out as a bonus for the discovery of payable gold, and they were afraid of the ground being rushed.' The Surveyor-General added the following minute to Mr. Hack's report:— 'I concur with Mr. Hack that in the absence of an advertised reward the persons named were justified in keeping the discovery to themselves. I consider, however, the fact that they did not make known the discovery should be borne in mind, and the amount that ought otherwise have been paid be proportionately lessened.' The Cabinet have considered the memorial and the dockets attached, and have decided to place the sum of £200 from the Estimates as a bonus to Messrs. Watts and B. !for the discovery known as Watts Gully Goldfield.

    This mine was floated three years ago under the most favorable auspices, and indeed the machinery and buildings now on the property of the company are of the most complete description. The main shaft is now down to a depth of 500 feet. It will be remembered that last session of Parliament Mr. Johnson carried a motion to the effect that it was desirable that bonuses should be offered for the discovery of reefs at certain depths. A Bill has been prepared by Mr. Johnson, who has been assisted in his task by Mr. Bedford Hack, the warden of goldfields, which the Premier has promised to introduce during the session. This measure, if carried,will give tie Government power to offer rewards for the discovery of new goldfields, and in other ways to encourage systematic search for the precious metal, as is done in all the other colonies.

    The 1888 Leases.— The Surveyor-Gteneral has been directed by the Commissioner of Crown Lands (Hon. J. Coles) to receive from pastoral lessees whose leases expire in 1888 particulars of the valuations of their im provements and of their claims in respect to them, with a view to an examination and early adjustment. At a Cabinet meeting held on Monday afternoon the Government decided to appoint four valuators in addition to the Conservator of Water (Mr. J. W. Jones) to appraise the improvements on the country the subject of report by the Pastoral Board. These appointments are necessary, because the valuations of the country mast be completed by the end of April, the Act providing that the leases shall be offered not later than July, and be advertised for two it on ths previously in the Gazette. The Government propose submitting the leases in batches as the valuations come to hand aud the values are agreed upon. As several pas toral lessees have intimated their willingness to accept the Government valuations in con nection with their leases falling due ia 1888, the Commissioner ot Crown Lands considered that the appointment of three valuators in addition to Mr. J. W, Jones would be suffi cient. The names of those selected to under take the duty were submitted to Cabinet and approved on Thursday afternoon. They were Mr. B; Hack (Chief Warden ot Gold fields), Mr. S. G. Hiibbe (Chief Inspector under the Vermin Act), and Mr. Thomas Parser, C.E. Out of the four valuators Mr. Faiker is the only one who will be paid for his services, as he is not a member of the Civil Service.

    Mr, Bedford Hack, who h» been in the service of the Government since 1873. received an unwelcome Christmas card on Monday in the shape of a notice informing him that one month from that date his services would be no longer required. Mr. Hack has been for a lorg time in the Lands Department, and for many years filled the position of Warden of Guld fields. He baa latterly bsen engaged in the work of revaluing pastoral leases. He has. like Othello, 'done the State some service,' and it seems rather hard that at the termina tion nf 16 years of labor in the employment of tbe Government he should receive his dis charge in 80 very summary a manner. The reason given by tbe Ministry for their action iB that they are merely carrying out their policy to retrench wheretner it is possible to do so. Thpy jygpn that -thin a.npnin«Tgi3c?; of 'an InspecKr^bT' Mines does away with the necessity for retaining Mr. Hack in his eafc&city ab Warden of GoldSelda. Sir. Hack is a very popular member of the Civil Service, and the mode in which he has been dealt with has called forth strong feeling in many depart ments, while it has tended to increase the anxiety of the Civil servants as to the security of their own positions,
