Downing-street, 24 January 1863.     


I HAVE to request that you will acquaint Mr. Tilley that his letter of the 5th* instant, addressed to Sir Frederic Rogers, on the subject of the Treasury Minute on the proposed loan for the construction of the Inter-colonial Railway, has been received in this department, and I enclose a copy of a memorandum which I have received from the Secretary to the Treasury on the points raised by Mr. Tilley respecting the mode of raising the loan, and the priority of charge on the Colonial Revenues, which I trust will be satisfactory to him.

Mr. Tilley will doubtless communicate this information to his colleague, Mr. Howe. I have therefore not sent a copy of this paper to Lord Mulgrave.

I have, &c.                 

(signed)           Newcastle
