,_ All l?.rt, Edward, Prince of Wales, was born on the 9th November, 1841, and the anniversary is, as usual, nude a public holiday. '-'■■• ■
:;1 snsty breeze from the south-west prevailed in Dunedin during the morning, threatening lo bring rain. Onslow and the. luvercargill left the Duucdin whaives at 10 a.m. to-day for excursious down the harbor. Both steamers were very largi-ly patronised. Our own reporter at Chrs'church telegraphs:—The weather is threatening, but there is little likelihood of rain before the night. The city is chock full of visitors, though the Dunedin contingent is not so strong as usual. fc>b. Paul is a warm Cup favorite for money, but Haria, Lord Rosslyn, and Waiuku have each a large following, and I expect the winner to come from that quartet. Arline is a non-aceeptor for the Stewards' Stakes. The Welcome should lie between the Sincerity colt and Uundas, the former for choice.
From Auckland it was wired this morning:—The weather is fine for the holiday. There are a number of water excursions on, and a temperance gala in the Domain, and the Auckland Racing Ciub hold the second day of their spring meeting at Elleralie. A Press Association message from Wellington Bays: The weather for the holiday ia perfect, and the early trains to the country are crowded. The principal attraction in the city is the labor sports; while the Otaki and Carterton race meetings are drawing large numbers of excursionists from Wellington.
