COLONIAL PENNY POSTAGE. General Sir Andrew Clarke, Agent-General for Victoria, has received a telegram from his Govern- ment to the effect, that the Inland- Penny Postage Act has passed, and that it will come into force in the colony on April 1 next. The inauguration of penny postage in New Zealand was celebrated on New Year's Day throughout the colony. The General Post Office was illuminated, and Mr. Ward, the Postmaster-General, was pre- sented with a souvenir of the occasion in the form of a gold stamp for which 10.000 people had sub- scribed Id. each. The first stamp sold was purchased for the Times, and a news letter, to which it was affixed, has been despatched.
