THE RINKS.

A fancy dress children's carnival was held at the Palace Skating Rink last evening, when a large number of little children, attired iu various fancy costumes, occupied the floor for the major part of the evening. Some of tho characters impersonated were really good, the make-up in some cases being excellent; while the antics and grimaces of a few attired in grotesque dresses created much amusement. Amongst thoso represented were Jester and Polly (who led tho march), French Peasant Girl, Dolly Varden, Bonnie Fishwife, Karl the Uhlan, sailors, soldiers, footballers, tramps, etc. During tho ovening a pretty maypolo dance was executed by a number of the little one 3 on skates, and the business like manner iu which tho children went through the intricacies of tho dance showed that Mr Crockford had spared no pains to ensure success. Tho carnival will bo repeated this evening, when general skating will be extended to 10.30 p.m.

Tho City Hall Rink was well patronised last night, it being ladies' invitation evenin". One heat of the three-mile handicap was run on Saturday evening, Peters being first, Batchelor second. On Thursday evening the attraction will bo a boys' race.
