Smith _t_eet.—There appears to be some misoonception about this street, which.has recently been reopened in Akaroa, Residents do not appear to know that it is one of the oldest streets in the Borough, and can be found on all old charts. It does not appear to be known either that the man after whom the street is called, Mr Henry Smith, was a notible man from 1840 to 1851. This man was a friend of the first resident magistrate of Akaroa, Mr C. B Robinson, and entered into partnership with that gentleman in bringing out the first English ship to Akaroa. the Monarch. Mr Smith was a part owner of tbis vessel, and brought out a valuable draft of cattle—one pure-bred bull, two pur 6 bred bf-i ers, one purebred mare, and a brace of pheasants. All this is recorded in the account of tho arrival of the Monarch in "Tales of Banks Peninsula." This Mr Smith also owned what is now known as Kinloch, and sold this property about 1552 to the fate Mr Hugh Buchanan. He was keenly interested in the importation of a good class of stock on to the Peninsula, and was a man of considerable nnte among the first residents of the Peninsula.
