The main Ashbnrton roll has 2724 names upon it, and it, is expected that when the supplementary roll is closed there will be at least another 500 names to be dealt with. Persons Whose names are not yet registered ought to lose no time m letting the Registrar (Mr Joseph Ward) know of their existence. The main roll requires a good deal of purging, as them are names thereon of persons who have left the district years ago. A welcome fall of rain set m last evening shortly after five o'clock and continued during the greater part of the night. The moisture came up with a moderate Southeast wind, and took the form of a steady downpour which has had the effect of thoroughly saturating the soil, and should assist very materially m bringing the incoming harvest forward, while at the same time doing a world of good to the pasture fields. The usual meeting of the Ashburtqn Hospital Committee was held to-day. Present—W. C. Walker, Esq., M.H.R., Messrs Hugo Friedlander and James Brown, Netherby, Wak.xuui (representing the County Council), and James Keir (representing the Borough Council).

He also sent a circular on the [subject of an Australian Conference on Charity, which was ordered to be acknowledged, and was laid on the table for future consideration. A return of the Ashburton county patients treated m theChristchurch Hospital was laid on the table.
