The Fancy Dress Skating Carnival commences at the City Hall Rink to-morrow evening. The manager informs us a large number of tickets have already been disposed of to skaters who purpose attending in fancy costume; and as very considerable interest is being taken in the carnival by skaters generally, its success is assured. The Rink is to be specially decorated with evergreens, flowers, and flags, and to enable it to be done thoroughly it is announced that the Rink will be closed to-morrow morning and afternoon. The feature at the Palace Rink next week will be the appearance of Miss Mabel Silvester, who comes here highly accredited as a fancy skater. On Monday night she will appear in the shadow dance, which is her own dance, and said to be both novel and pleasing.
