To the Editor of the Lyttelton Times.
Sir,—- May I beg a corner in your columns to make known my distress. My buoy—my only buoy, my support—is lost; where he is gone to I know not, but he is, I fear, lost to me for ever adrift on the boundless ocean, or sunk beneath its waves.
    I reposed in the soothing, but alas! fallacious conviction that a gentleman was appointed in this place to look after the welfare of myself and my buoy. i Possibly through your medium I may be fortunate enough to awaken in the bosom of the paternal, Government in Christchurch a sympathy which is denied me here, and so may be enabled to look forward to a better fate for my next buoy should I ever be blessed with one.

I am, Sir, your afflicted servant,
