The Defence Department is forwarding several heavy guns and miscellaneous inventions of war, which are to be erected in the armament court of the Exhibition.

Up to the present time the Museum authorities have (says the Wellington ‘ Post ’) despatched twelve cases of goods to the Dunedin Exhibition, and thirty more will be forwarded during the next two or three weeks. Sir James Hector has just had n large model of New Zealand cast in plaster of pans, and ho will leave for Dunedin with it in a few days, in order to color it when it is in position. The model is about 30ft long, and gives a fine idea of the appearance of the colony. A collection of auriferous ores from various mines on the Thames Goldfields is being made. It is intended to have at the Exhibition a monolith representing the total value of gold produced in this province to date—some nine or ten millions sterling. An exhibit of stones from the quarries in Auckland district has been prepared to the order of the Government.

Additional acceptances to be present at the opening ceremony have been received from Major Goring ; the Chief Postmaster, Dunedin ; and the chief officer Telegraph Department, Dunedin. Mr Riveradale Walrond, tho Governor’s private secretary, arrived in town last evening, and to-day paid a visit to the Exhibition Buildings, expressing pleasure and astonishment at their size.
