Married women who are living apart from their husbands, and are holders of licenses for hotels, have received notice from the olerk of the Licensing Committee that the liolice intend to oppose the renewal of their ioenses at the next meeting of the Bench. The action of the police will affect three houses in this city. It is stated that negotiations are almost completed for the amalgamation of M'Carthy’s and Staples’s breweries, which are two of the largest in town. At an early hour this morning a trial with one of the dynamos to be used in lighting the city was made, and the result was most satisfactory. The ordinary type of newspapers could be read in the centre of the roadway in its widest part. The date of receiving tenders for the mail contract by direct steamers to London
closed yesterday. Only one tender was received, that being one from the Shaw, Savill and Albion Company. The Railway Commissioners have reported in favor of the extension of the railway to Te Aro, and the matter is now under the consideration of the Government.
