Carmichael and Sons, of Wellington and Chtistcburch, are the successful tenderers of the Union Steam Ship Company's new offices at Wellington. NEW PLYMOUTH, August 17. The meeting lsst night respecting the harbor was by no means a representatiTe one. Mr W. H. Skinner, Government Surveyor, in his report on the harbor to the Board, says that a large decrease of sand had taken place around the end of the breakwater, and at this point the water bad deepened considerably. As this point would be the first place at which the bank should show a decrease, supposing the drift had been cut off, it would appear to indicate that already the rubble gto'n connecting Mekotabi with the foot of the breakwater has had a beneficial result in shutting off tho shingle constantly coming up from the south. WESTPORT, August 17. Mr John Dillon has accepted the invitation of the local branch of the Irish National League to visit We6tport. He leaves Sydney for New Zealand on the Ist October.
