Vacancies in tbe Marine Service.— The President of the Marine Board has been advised of the death of Mr. T. Cheeseman, an old identity of Port Pirie, and one  

of the staff of pilots licensed by tbe Marine Board. The late Mr. Cheesman was first licensed aa a pilot in October 1878, having thus completed exactly seventeen years of service. He was very painstaking in the discharge of his duties. The Wardens of the Board will be consulted at the next meeting as to filling the vacancy in the staff ot pilots at Port Pirie, caused by his death. The position of Harbourmaster at Port Victor, rendered vacant by tbe death of Captain Hellon, has been temporarily filled. The late Captain Hellon received his first ap pointment under the Government in 1882, as Berthing Officer at Morgan. In 1886 he was removed to Germein Bay as Harbourmaster and Lightkeeper, positions which be resigned the following year. Afterwards he occupied the position of mate on one of the dredges at Port Adelaide, and prior to his appointment at Port Victor in 1888 he was at Corney Point Lighthouse.   Education at a Discocst.— Tbe Govern ment are offering youths, who have passed the Civil Servioa Examination, positions as tele graph messengers at 10s. per week.
