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.
