In reply to a letter from Sir R. Stout, the Auckland University College Council have resolved to givo every assistance in their power in procuring educational exhibits for the Dunedin Exhibition,- s-nd to take joint action in this matter with other educational bodies in that city. Special meetings of the Building Committee, as well as the Governors, will be held to take immediate measures towards the enlargement of the Exhibition Buildings, which are now progressing visibly. By this morning's mail very satisfactory reports have been received from the official agents in Australia. ' In Sydney all arrangements for the Anglo-Australian fine art collection have been satisfactorily made. A catalogue of those valuable pictures has been forwarded, also the wall Bpace which will have to he set aside for them—4,sooft. This valuable collection, together with the British loan exhibits, will materially contribute to the attraction of the Exhibition. The Victorian Chamber of Manufactures have obtained from the Go vernment a promise that the colony shall be officially represented, and passed a resolution to urge upon the manufacturers of that colony to be largely represented. South Australian vignerons have sent in their applications for space.
Tho Executive Commissioners have sent a circular to the chairman of each committee asking him to furnish as soon as possible a full report of the progress made and probable cost of the section which he has under his oharge. Complaints are still coming from the neighboring colonies at the want of telegraphic communication relating to Exhibition matters. The efforts made by the Exhibition managers to enlist the sympathy of the United Press Association have been fruitless.
