This week the staunch timbers of the wharf must have been fairly well tested, the following large steamers being in port Saint Helena, Riverina, Warrimoo, Whakatane, Wakanul, Hawea (with 700 tons cargo). Hineraoa (taking the Governor and party round the Sounds), s.s. Bellbird (a stranger from Hobart, which I understand is going into the fishing trade) For some time there has been a lull in the local labour market, but with the advent of the wool sales and the oyster season, everyone appears to be busy. Wool and flaxstores are working overtime. It appears that local engineers are so busy that one of them—who is also one of the City Fathers'—had to work much overtime lately. The delicious bivalve is once more to be had, the season having commenced in earnest' —in fait it must have commenced just on the tick of the clock. Our oystermeu are wellknown for their punctuality, in spite of the eagle eye of the Customs officer on the look-out to see that no oysters were bagged before the proper time.
I understand that Z\fr Hansen, who at present holds th> BB bass championship of N.Z., intends competing at the Christchurch Band Competitions, in an endeavour to retain the title.
