On Wednesday evening Mr J. Vickery was noticed to be fairly busy with his cab. .1 nvestigation proved that he was gathering up some friends connected with the Presbyterian Church, who were making a journey to Ocean Peach for the purpose of giving a concert, and I understand a very successful concert was held. Songs were contributed by M isses Oeorgeson, Heith, Mrs Crocket, a duet by the two Misses .Johnston, and a recitation by Mr John Dale, and songs by Messrs Guy, Crocket, (Sal brail h, Stewart, Davis, Walker, and K. Parker, the last-nam-ed with violin obligato by Mr C. K. Hansen, which was very well received. Mr Parker being- in splendid voice. Mrs Stewart and Miss White acted s accompanists. After the concert an adjournment was made to Mrs Mitchell’s residence, where a .splendid repast was laid for the visitors, and before preparations were made for getting home Messrs Galbraith, Stewart, Guy and Crocket returned thanks for the kindness of their hostess in entertaining so many visitors. Shipping has been very cpiiet this week, there being only" the s.s. Moeraki and Monowai on Monday last. Probably a stir may bo caused in shipping circles next Thursday by the sale of the ship Stefano Raze'to, which has just completed discharging her cargo of something like 2,400 tons of superphosphates. A new craft was in port on Sunday last, a little steamer called the Cascade, and bound for the West Coast. She was originally built for the Clutha River Board.
Chris. Marcusson, erstwhile at the local post office, but now of Wellington, is paying a brief visit to the Bluff. He looks well on it, but says the Bluff climate is far better and brighter than New Zealand’s chief town. Mr C. A. Tipping has returned home, after a few weeks trip round the Northern ports of the Dominion. Churches, like ordinary mortals, must have the necessary cash to exist on, and the Primitive Methodist Church is arranging for next week what is called a Whip Fair, and everything is to be arranged in the Brill .Hall in the shape of a ship. A good opportunity to see the things ship-shape.
