An orchestral concert waß given yesterday afternoon when the^f ollowing exceptionally attractive programme was submitted and admirably rendered : — Overture, " Barbiere di Seyiglia" (Rossini); selection, "Carmen" (Bizet); overture, "Semiramide" (BossiniV, selection, "La Fille dv Regiment" (Donizetti); overture," Masaniello" (Auber); march," lannbauser" (Wagner). In the evening a promenade concert was held

in the garden, the Ordnance Band playing several selections from the rotunda.

AH the difficulties attending the erection ol

the Eiffel Tower and working of the Otis lift have now been overcome. Messrs M'Leod and Shaw have completed their contract very Batißfactorily. Mr Hislop and the contractors may be congratulated on having endowed the New Zealand Exhibition with a very fair and impressive "replica" of the great French engineer's work, which caused so much attraction at the

Paris Exhibition. Although, of course, of much leas pretension, this tower will be a great source of pleasure to the visitors. The elevator is a handsomely furnished room about 10 x 10, raised by steam power, without any perceptible jarring or motion. The visitors can be stopped at either of'the three stages, but tg enjoy this serial journey the last is doubtless the altitude all should go to. From this roomy platform, upon which seats have been provided, a most enchanting panorama is seen.

On Monday next, it is safe to say, the exhibition will be thoroughly finished. With a view to aocommodate.South Dnnedin, St. Olair, Caversham, and St. Kilda visitors an entrance and exit will be permitted at the Anderson's Bay road gate.

"Chedwin's" and other filters have been placed in various parts of the grounds and building. Seats have also been judiciously distributed about the avenues and gardens.
