The successful tenderer for the ir.cni rooms, verandahs, and corridor is Mr David Low (of Dunedin), at L 990. The other tenderers were Messrs M'Millan and Mo.flit, J. Barton, Milnes and Son, and M’Leod and Shaw.

The organ to be used at the Exhibition will, we think, satisfy everybody. It was made entirely in the colony, the builder being Mr E. H. Jenkins (of Christchurch), for many years in the employ of Messrs Cavaill6-Coll and Co., of Paris, and also of the firm of Messrs Hill and Sons, of London, builders of the organs at York Gathodgal arid the Melbourne Town Hall. The instrument which Mr Jenkins under'takes to provide was built for the Wellington Exhibition, but \vhen .used there' it was jn an incomplete condition. New Zealand woods have beep naainly ua,ed, bjjt some of the more delicate parte W/C of Sydney cedar and American clear pine. ?hg ,casg is in Gothic style, richly ornamented and carved, and otherwise handsomely de.corated. The height is 22ft, by LSJft wide and lift deep. Particulars are appended
