VOLUNTEER INTELLIGENCE.

The Dunedin Irish Rifles fired their first competition of the season at the Pelichet Bay Range yesterday morning for prizes presented by Messrs F. Armstrong, Duthie Bros., and the Shooting Committee. The conditions were seven shots at 200, 300, and 500 yards. The light was very dull, rain falling throughout the whole competition. The following (all starting from scratch) scored 60 points and over, the throe highest being prize-takers:—

PENINSULA NAVALS IN CAMP.

The heavy rain last night gave tho Navals a Blight taste of real camp life and its discomforts. So long aa the rain was unaccompanied by wind no harm was done, but about midnight the wind freshened very considerably, and, the sand affording poor hold for the pegs, two of the tontscapßized, turning tho occupants out into the rain. After a short struggle things were righted without any harm except a slight damping. As a camp aito (except for the difficulty of fixing tent pegs) Tahuna Park is perfect, the heaviest rain is quickly absorbed in the Band, and there is no mud. The very heavy rain this morning stopped all drill, tho men getting an extra sleep, turning out at six instead of four. The continual drillo arc. bearing good fruit, the men showing considerable smartness in their work.
