Typo: A Monthly Newspaper and Literary Review, Volume 3

[miscellaneous paragraphs]

« The neatest-printed paper in the colony » is the way the Fielding Star describes Typo.

The home correspondent of the Wellington Times says that many English people are under the impression « that the colony is overrun with half-civilized semi-cannibals. » « Half-civilized » is intelligible, but will our friend be good enough to rise and explain what he means by « semi-cannibals » ?

The Wanganui Herald, an authority on sporting matters, says:— « Only those who are in newspaper offices have any idea of the absolute selfishness of the sporting public. There is never a set of weights, or a report of a race meeting due, but they are flocking round for news, and not unfrequently complain because it is not to hand or is meagre. Are papers to cater for only one class of the community? If so, are they to do it at their own expense? »

The second annual issue of the Lithogaphers' [sic: Lithographers'] and Photographers' Directory, pubblished [sic: published] in New York, is now nearly ready. We were much annoyed at receiving by March mail from San Francisco through the dead letter office, a letter, posted by us some months previously, containing information relating to this colony for the work in question. As the letter was properly addressed, and bore the New York post office stamp, its non-delivery is a mystery.
