We desire to call your attention to a noticerecently posted on the wall of the room used by the members of the Inter-State Press at Parliament House. Such notice was headed " The Roll of Honour," and contained a list of senators and members of the House of Representatives who are members of the Joint House Committee. This notice is evidently intended to serve the same purpose as a scurrilous and vulgar document of the same nature which was posted by pressmen in another part of the House reserved for their use; and unless we are furnished with a satisfactory explanation in the matter, and receive a full apology by 12 noon to-morrow, it is our intention to exclude members of the Inter-State Press from all (privileges at Parliament House.

Yours faithfully, (Sgd.) Thos. Givens, President.

Chas. McDonald, Speaker.

H.   W. Peters, Esquire,

Chairman of the Press Committee, Parliament House.
