EXHIBITION NOTES.

In reply to the circular re mineral exhibits sent out by the Mining Committee of the Exhibition, the Wallace County Council have resolved to apply for a bay in the Exhibition, and the members of the Council were appointed a committee to collect exhibits and to forward same.

Mr H. C. Field, of Wanganui, has sent down a supply of ferns for the Exhibition Gardens.

The Victoria Insurance Company have taken LSO worth of advertising space. The following applications for new shares have been received George Esther, L 1 0; S. G. Smith, L 10; M‘Gregor B. Wright, L 5; Archdeacon Edwards, L 5; Andrew Maxwell, Lo, Guarantee fund: George Wright, Roslyn, L 5; Basil Sievwright, L 2 5; George Esther, L 2 5; W. Gregg and Co., L3O. Captain Somtnerville, chairman of the New Zealand Rifle Association, informs us that circulars are now being sent out to members of the Council suggesting that all rifle clubs having a membership of not less than twenty shall have the same privileges as volunteers and companies at the New Zealand Rifle Association meetings. He is convinced that the meeting to be held here in December will be a mammoth one, and points out that the arrangements must be on a larger scale than for similar gatherings heretofore. The trouble, he apprehends, will be over the weapon ; and he feels satisfied that the new weapon will not be available. Captain Sommerville writes hopefully concerning a fair representation from the neighboring colonies; and is emphatic on the point that the command of the meeting should be in Colonel Wales’s hands. He also mentions that Admiral Fairfax is willing to lend the Association a supply of Martini rifles.
