The s.s. Pingal leaves for Mercury Bay to-morrow morning with a shipment of fat cattle consigned by Messrs Brown Bros. The s.s. Waiotahi, after having been bar-bound at Opotiki for a few days, managed to get out yesterday morning and proceeded to Auoklind direct. Now that the fruit season is at hand Messrs Mann and Co. advertise that they have in stook enamelled iron preserving pans and preserving sugar. Captain Edwin wires to-day :— Moderate to stong easterly winds; glass fall; tides high, sea easterly swell ; rain probable after 24 hours from now. Messrs C. F. Spooner and Co., auctioneers of this town, have opened np a similar branch in Waibi, when they will conduct weekly sales of fruit, poultry, etc. The Mount is attaining greater popularity than ever this year, as a holiday resort and on Saturday night the population residing there in houses and tents, must have numbered close on fifty, many of whom are staying there for various periods from a day or two, up to two or three weeks, for the pleasures of sea bathing, fresh air and the general enjoyment of camp life in beautiful surroundings. At the Police Court this morning, before the Rev. Wm- Barrett and Mr T. E. Price, Justices, two first offenders were fined 5/- each and oosts for being drunk. Two other persons were charged with breaches of the Borough bye-laws, by discharging firearms within the Borough, a fine of 10/- and costs was inflicted against one, whilst the other was convicted and ordered to pay Court costs. y The Victualling Store officer of H.M. Navy, Sydney, invites tenders for the supply of fresh provisions to H.M. ships at Tauranga during the twelve months commencing Ist April next.

Full particulars can be seen on reference to the advertisement. Once attain some persons have proposed that Premier Seddon should be next Governor of Maorilarid. But Seddon, aa Governor, would want to pull the strings all the time. Hori Grey was Governor first and politician afterwards, which is a different case. Anyhow a person who allowed people to yell ' Dick ' after him in the street instead of • Your Excellency ' couldn't be tolerated for a moment. — Sydney Bulletin. A serious accident befel Mr B. Kensington, of Oropi, on Thnr*day morninsr, resulting in the fracture of the left arm and collarbone. He was driving his team of bullock*, with the waggon loaded, into town, an'i when descending Grassick's cutting he fell off, the hind wheel passing over the parts mentioned. A relative who was coming along with him went back to Mr Wesley's residence, when the latter harnessed up and conveyed the injured man to town, when his injuries were attended to by Dr Brown. The marriage of the Hon. Trevoi Ogilvie- Grant, youngest son of the late Earl of Seafield, to Miss HardyJohnston, of Christohurob, was celebrated a few days ago. The Dowager of Seafield and hei fm. Uy resided in Tauranga for some time a few years ago, and during her residence she was deeply interested in charitable and religious work. Her eldest son, the present Earl of Seafield, married Miss Townsend, of Christchuroh. The Hon. Trevor and Mrs Ogilrie-Grant intend to make their home in Wellington. From the report in files of the London Times just to hand, of the charges against E. H. Liviogton, formerly of Te Puke, it appears that accused was charged as 'Ernest Henry Lavington. alias Robert King, 28, of no -fixed address,' and tbnt he was first accused of- having unlawfully obtained credit to tha amount of £7,594, 3s 6d under false pretences ; he was then further charged with forging and uttering a request for procuring the credit in question. Accused defended bis action by saying he had a letter from Mr King asking him if he had come across anything to suit him in bia business, which he interpreted to mean that he could buy anything out of which b« oould make a profit. The Lord Mayor committed him for trial. Trout fishing, in its most delightful form, namely in shaded itreams with alternating placid pools md rippling shallows, is now placed beyond a doubt as one of the attractions of this neighbourhood, as the streams of the Oropi bush are now ill more or leas stocked with big 1 beauties,' the Wsiorobi and Tautau, ;he streams which cross the main •oid to Rotorun at the first and lecond bridges in the bush respectively, containing enough to mtisfy any true angler A gentlenan who recently wa^ed down the iVdiornhi stream to ascertain the rue state of affairs, following its >«d for some three miles or so, saw mouarh to satisfy him that the itream was wall stocked, and that bere were quite as many big fish a? t was well for the pools to carry.
