■ ". , New Yobk, April 25. Fifteen thousand butchersin Chicago J 1 Have threatened to strike unless their' hours of labor are reduced to eight per day. ' ■ • '

... . Weobserve, that Mr J. C. Wason formerly member f,or this district but who has, taken up Bis residence in Scotland is on a visit to , this i Colony and is at the present .time in Ashburton. ' ' Runholders in Australia are in a bad plight, and their losses in many cases have been enormous from the late drought. jWe hear of one, .where an owner of a : . large^statiqnhas had to write off £20;000 r a. t f<^»r losses, in ,Ifhe past year. . When;the fronij flood is also taken inttK con- .(. sideration, the, losses must means ruination in \ many cases.. •■• • • , j^ • Mr G'.'K.'Mahoriey, an ardent admirer of ', r Tir' Ham, Jteann nd/ii gleann s'nan gaisgeach, ' ; ! as tlie Highlanders describe the country f '| () l ('.'the land of the hills and the glens and the „',. heroes"), entertained a select party of 11 'Ikigntohr'arid'other men of the Kilt and 'Y'^&ttie^'at/Mr Kelly's Central Hotel last * 'night;' "Theriicht draveonwi'.'sangs <an' clatter", until the small hours, and a joyous ■evening was spent. „,, The Ashburton Presbyterian Church, anniversary services will be conducted to-morrow by., Rev J. H. McKenzie, the- eloquent 'succ'ds'sbr of Rev James Hill, of Lyttelton. .., ( .Presbyterians will enjoy a treat in listening io'Mr McK:en'zie, who has never preached in Ashburton before. The offertories are'to be

demoted t<r Church extension purposes and ■ >j > to <fche SupplemeritarFund, and this is desired 'to be borne in mind. On Tuesday the annual tea meeting will be held in the Oddfellows' Hall, and may be expected to be as attractive as usual. Mr McKenzie will be among, the „ speakers, and the music is to be a very , 'delightful feature. Ihe Presbyterians hold £ jonly one tea'meeting a year, but it is usually a great success, and doubtless will be so on „ Jthjs occasion. i .
