At a meeting of the’ Victorian Commissioners on the 6th inst. it was reported that an active canvass of the manufacturers in Melbourne had been made by Mr Jacobs (president of the Chamber of Manufacturers), Mr Fletcher, superintendent of the court, and the secretary, with the most gratifying results. A canvass was also made at Geelong, which was successful, and a large number of the loading manufacturers pro. raised to exhibit fully, The woollen mills' and leather factories would make an especially good show. The art collection, which had received the special attention of Mr! Fletcher, was already a confirmed success,! and would, without exception, be the finest! ever sent out of the colony, Arrangements were also being made for the speedy transmission of goods, and the first shipment would be made by one of the Union Steam Ship Company’s vessels early next month. Almost ’all the space in the court had been appliedfor.’-^*Argus.'' .
