Mr D. Wishart (Begg and Co.) has received a letter from Mr G. Price, who is acting as agent in the colonies for the wellknown baritone, referring to the proposed visit to this colony of Mr Santley.

It has not yot been decided as to tho number of weeks to which his stay there will bo limited, but there is every probability of Mr Sautley appearing in New Zealand very shortly.
