Clarkson St&nfleld, R.A.—• The Opening of .London Bridge' N. Chevalier.—'Mount Cook and Like Pukaki.' The Agent-General has informed the Executive that the Messrs Agnew and Sons intend to send a fine collection of oil and water-color paintings, prints, etc., for sale. Mr Fletcher, the principal art dealer in Melbourne, has applied for 750 ft of wall space, and intends to bring over a large and varied assortment of pictures; and an important selection from the Koek-koek Gallery is also to be forwarded. The most interesting exhibit of paintings, however, will undoubtedly be the Soottish collection, which, by the kind help of Mr A. F. Roberts and Mr James Sanderson (the Home partners of the president of the Exhibition) is now being got together. These gentlemen, in addition to taking upon themselves the trouble of collecting pictures, have laid the Commissioners and the public of New Zealand generally under a debt of gratitude for their liberal personal donation in money and pictures. It is expected this collection will comprise valuable examples by Erskino Nichol, M'Kay, M'Taggart, Held, Paton, Vallance, Hole, Perigal, Colin Hunter, Hamilton M'Callum, and other eminent Scottish artists. Advices have been received that the Australian art societies are combining together, and propose sending a representative collection of their best works.
Nothing has yet been heard from America or Canada, but letters on the subject will doubtless como forward by next mail. Tho above resumd will, however, show that the labors of the Fine Arts Committee so far are likely to result in a magnificent and highly attractive display of pictures, and that ths art section will be a great success.
lho Premior has informed the executive that ho received the following telegram this morning from Sydney :—" With regard to your telegram re space for this colony at Dunedin Exhibition, we shall require 20,000ft.—1I enky Parkes." As some considerable trouble will doubtless be experienced in placing the larger exhibits at the Exhibition in their places, it is extremely probable that arrangemonts will be made with Messrs Neill and Co., Limited, for the use of the Decauville portable railway for this and other purposes. The applications for season tickets are moit satisfactory so far, but there seems to be some misunderstanding as to the privileges conferred on subscribers. We are requested to state that season tickets entitle the holders to free admission throughout the whole period of the Exhibition one hour prior to the opening of the gates for the public, including the opening day. There will be no extra charge whatever for any part of the Exhibition buildings or grounds, except the musical hall or special concertß or entertainments, the switchback, or side shows. Tho popular concerts, band concerts, etc., are all free, and the art galleries are free at all times.
Acting upon a suggestion from the Victorian official agent, the president intends writing to Sir VV. J. Clarke asking for a loan of the statue of the Queen now in the Melbourne public library, he being tho donor of it.
Application has been received from Samoa for a bay, in which it is intended to show textile fabrics, chemical manufactures, Native weapons, educational appliances, printing, works of art, photographs, forestry products, agricultural products, wood fibres, fishing tickle, and cuiios. This should prove a most interesting bay. The superintendent of the Allahabad Central Gaol has intimated that he intends to exhibit the work of the prisoners of the gaol at the Exhibition, This gaol is famed for the excellence of its carpets, and in the Calcutta Exhibition one of the principal features was the sight of a number of boys manufacturing carpets in view of visitors. The collection of pictures from Sydney (the Anglo-Australian Society of Artists' exhibits), the list of which we have already published, has been insured for L 5,019 3s Id. The collection comprises some 120 pictures, requires nearly 5,000 ft of wall Bpace, and is expected to reach here early in September.
