Whether his attention has been directed to a letter signed "Mercator," published in the Ben- digo Advertiser on Kith August, in which complaint is made of the irksome regulations and formalities insisted upon in connexion with the transit of goods from one State into another ; and whether, in view of the long lapse of time since the commencement ofuniform Federal duties, and thegradual and probable exhaustion of stocks imported into Australia before that date, he can see his way toreduce and mitigate the severity of some of the bookkeeping forms and rules at present enforced ?
