Bluff Notes.

By the s.s. Warrimoo from Melbourne on Tuesday I noticed the arrival of the Most Reverend the Primate of N.Z.

While the official party (consisting of Dr. Torrance, Detective Mcllveney, and Serg-t. McGrath) were going on board the steamer from Melbourne something went wrong with the gangway, resulting in the three officials being landed on the wharf in rather quicker time than usual. However, they eventually got aboard and carried out. their usual inspection.

The Bluff Guards go into camp on Sunday next on the recreation ground, leaving the Prill Hall at 7 p.m. Charity, benevolence, and all sorts of kindnesses should always begin at home. I understand that on account of the successful regatta rec.-nlly held the committee have made a donation of £5 to that deserving institution — the Sailors’ Rest.

Local engineering llrms are extremely busy just now and working at high pressure. H.M-.S. Pioneer arrived in port on Thursday afternoon. The . blue jackets aboard seem to he of a line sample of men, and will no doubt enjoy their run ashore and the hospitality of the residents during their brief stay. The Liberal and Labour Federation held their usual meeting on Thursday night, and arranged to hold a euchre tournament at next, meeting, which is also the annual meeting.

I understand the local brass band have had to abandon their trip to Christchurch contest, principally on account: of expense, the band havingbeen at two contests during the last twelve months, and as members' have, to pay their own expenses when going- to contests it is found mther much to expect men to bear the expense of. attending three contests in a year. *

The glorious summer mornings arc a strong inducement to have a. dip in the ocean, and an early riser strolling along the Marine Parade would be surprised at the number of people emerging- front the ocean.

Oystermen are .getting their craft in dock, and generally overhauling, in anticipation of the coining season.
