Palmers ton races to-morrow arid Thursday. It is fcxpeeted that rabbits will be extinot in Marlborough in two years time. Mr Seddon at Adelaide has been entertained at lunch by the Governor. A girl under 15 years of age is reported to havfc been married in Helson the other day. The bridegroom is not yet 21. " I know how to govern my wife." " Well, why don't you do it ?" " She won't let me." Clara : " Isn't your love for him very sudden?" Maud: "Well, his rich aunt died very unexpectedly." Some Levin amateurs are expected to visit Foxton shortly and give an entertainment. Mr James Nairn (Taikorea School) haß been appointed to succeed Mr Welsh as head teacher of the Pohangina School. Two ladies were prosecuted for double voting at Whacgarei, but the cases were disnuesed^after an alibi had been proved. The Government contemplate making farther concessions in railway freights, especially on goods, at the end of the financial year. The next English and European mail via Bio de Janiero will olose at the local office on Friday, the sth day of March, at 3 p.m. Sir George Turner, Premier of Victoria, has cabled to Mr Chamberlain, Secretary of Sta'e for the Colonies, that he will proprobably accept the invitation to attend the Queen's celebrations. The Sandon school excursionists oame in yesterday and went up the river in the Sunbeam. They did not number so many as (xpeoied, but those who did come enjoyed their trip. A doctor cays ihe X Bays exist in Nature, and are produoed by the common glowworm. The light from these tiny creatures will even penetrate solid sheets of alluminutu. It is stated Parliament is to be oalled together on March 18ih, the date to which it was prorogued last week, the intention being to have a short session to enable Mr Seddon to represent the colony at Home. This, however, is not officially confirmed. A syndicate is being formed in Wellington to introduce the Merrall quartz mill imo New Zealand mining. The mill, it is claimed, will make as great a revolution in he crushing process as the cyanide process in Auckland. The Hon Mr Seddon, writing to the Argus, estimates his surplus for the financial year at £300,000, made up as follows : —£100,000 from the Cusoms; £Bu,ooo from tlie railways ; £120,000 B.amps, post and teleginph, territorial, land and income taxes. Who would have thought it ? Taken physically, Major General Hutton describes the Australian soldier as " tall, and somewhat lanky," wi.h a smaller chest measuremem than the British so dier; but he "is stalwart, hardy, of excellent presence," with "an inborn military instinot stimulated by a quick intelligence which makes him an excellent soldier. Ie is commented upon as a singular fact that the body of the lite Mr Burdon should have, as it is said, come home for burial. The distance from the place where the drowning took place and where the body was found, is by river, quits eighty miles, i gruesome detail, too, which indicated a long drif iing, was that the boots of deoeased were quite worn away at the toes. The body was buried on Thursday at Bangiura, the funeral starting from Mr Dalziell's house — Advocate. The Chief Justice in giving his decision in the Wellington Election Peiition case said he could tee no reas m why they should depart from the rule, that the respondent should have costs. The petitioners had not proved anything in the conduct of Mr Fißher or his ag> nts which would justify i he Court in penali ing him. The petition was dibmissbd with oosts on the highest sca'e, and six extra days were certified to at IS guineas each, and extra counsel. — The costs are variously estimated at sums ranging from £500 to £700. A good deal of surprise was expressed at the publication, just after the death of toe Archbishop of Canterbury, of the message of ooudolenoe sent by Her Majesty to Mrs Benson. As it was ot a quiet private nature nothing beyond the mere fact of its having been rec ived was communicated to the represent a ives of the Prets at Ha* warden and its appea anoe in print caused much annoyanoe to Mrs Benson and her friends. Inquiries made on the spot have disclosed the faot that the contents of the telegram were divulged to the representative of the Central News agency by the Ha warden postmistress, who has since been dismissed from her office.
