The main building o! the Exhibition is now nearly completed, the windows and inner boarding being finished in every detail. The entrance—to the right and left of which rooms are to be set apart for the managsr, secretary, and other officials and the Press—has yet to be boarded, and the windows, which will extend higher than the top of the main door, fitted in. The annexes are in a forward state, while work at the other portions of the building is progressing as satisfactorily as can be expected. The towers have been finished, and the construction of the main transept is being pushed forward. The boarding of the latter has been placed in position at the lower end, and the top has been covered with lead sheeting. It will not be long now before No 1 contract, which includes the main building, and extends right and left to the corners from which the annexes proper start, will be out of the contractors’ hands.
