We have been shown a very beautiful specimen of the art of illumination from the pen of Mr G. W. Wade of Timarn, m the shape of a farewell address to Mr It. W. Jenkins, until recently manager ot the Bank of New South Wales at Ashbnrton, on the occasion of his removal to Blenheim. The address is couched m the following terms: "ToR. W. Jenkins, Esq.,—Dear Sir; On the occasion of your leaving Ashburton, a few of your clients and personal friends deem it a proper opportunity for expressing to you the high estimation they entertain of your character, and the regret which they feel at your departure. Your business tact has been maintained with no loss of cordiality or sympathy on the part of those cugaged m commercial transactions with you. In matters affecting the social welfare of the community you have always taken a laudable interest; at the same time you have unhesitatingly used your ability and influence to promote the progress of religion. The subscribers to this simple souvenir wiali for you an increase of prosperity ami usefulness m your new sphere of duty, with the earnest hope that you and Mrs Jenkins may •ujoy long life and happiness." (Here follow the sighatures.) The address will be on view m the window of Mr H. M. Jones, East Street, for a few days. As the wheel of time has again ushered m the busy spring, and to be prepared to supply the requirements of Nature and of their numerous patrons, Messrs J. Scaly and Co. have completed their selection of seeds, which are of the choicest samples obtainable, and which include clovers, turnips, mangolds, carrots, rape, perennial ryegrass, cocksfoot, elephant swede, garden and flower seeds m endless variety, and garden requisites of every description. For the convenience of patrons who cannot make their purchases during the day the premises will be open to nine p.m. on Saturday evenings and after the 16th August.—(Advt.)
