    Mr. Clive C. Webb wrote that in view of the fact that there was to be a new ferryman taking charge of the ferry, he wished to bring under the notice of the Council that differences of opinion had arisen between the ferryman and the public as to the water height at which the punt should cease to be operated at sundown; and whether sundown meant sundown or 6 p.m. He suggested that the regulations be kept in readable order at the ferry, and that they would save all disputes. The President said the regulations should be plainly discernible, which would obviate a lot of complaints. Cr. Mills agreed with the President's view on the point.

We think that mention should be made of it in your paper, in order that other graziers may be able to avoid similar attacks, as we were unable to destroy the dogs, although we shot at them. They were a large black kangaroo dog and a brindle greyhound. This is the third attack in three years in which the black kangaroo dog has been the chief killer, but only in one case did we get compensation from the owner. —Yours, etc., LEONARD A. WEBB.
