Presbyterian Church stile of work opens- in the Drill Mall on Wednesday next. On arrival of the Union Co.’s s.s. Kaituna from Newcastle on Monday afternoon, news was received that the first mate, Mr Thos. Hood, had heen washed overboard during the rim across. Engines were reversed, and everything possible done, but no trace of the missing mate could be fou*d. Mr Hood leaves a wile and family, and I understand that so far as is known, was the only manned man on board the steamer. The ship Perfect sailed last Saturday for Surprise Island for another cargo of guano. During her stay in port 1800 tons of guano were landed and 550 tons of ballast saken in, all in the space of eleven working days. This is probably a eecord for the port.
At the meeting of the Loyal Awarua Lodge, 1.0.0. F,, M.U., on Monday night the balance-sheet showedthe funds to have reached £1664 and the membership 120. The order paper for the next district meeting to be held at Mint on on Sept. 11th was discussed, and the following delegates elected to represent the Awa-f rua Lodge ; CLM. llro. Leo. Valentine, N.G. llro. Ib McKenzie, and E.S. llro. 11. Giles. Capt. Lovett met with a nasty fall on Monday evening during the . do-, parture nf the s.s. Wimmera. Owing to the heavy' strain, one of the Wimmera’s lines gave way, the rope striking Capt. Lovett on the face and knocking him over, causing some cuts which required a few. stitches. I understand the patient is doing,fairly well, but is lilcely to be confined indoors for a while.
