Our shipping movements have been very brisk during the past week. In fact, those engaged on the wharf grumble about too much work at once. At other times the cry is ‘‘Too little.” So that it is evidently difficult to please everyone. However many hundreds of tons of cargo have been successfully handled during the week. The railway authorities have carried out their duties very well, under the watchful eye of the S.M.. On the whole, our system of working the shipping must compare favourably with that of other ports. The undermentioned are the steamers which have been in port during the week —S.s. Moeraki, Waikare, rina. The s.s. Waipori is a new Wanaka, Waipori, Devon, and Corsteamer, owned by the Union Co-, and this is her first trip to Bluff. The local Brass Band are doing a fair amount of practice in view of the forthcoming contest at Wyndham on 9th and 10th October, and the usual number of musical critics take a Ikieen interest in the playing of the band. This is considered very satisfactory at such a critical time, as the xcritics can give their various opinions on the playing of the members, and point out wherein occur the weak spots, which can then be remedied. Of course, though the critics have different opinions, that 'does not alter the vast amount of good derived from their criticisms.

The band practise to-morrow afternoon and the following Sunday afternoon in the Drill Hall, and would be pleased to sec a large number of the public present lo hear the contest) selections. Wednesday next the Bluff BoatingClub open their season, and in the evening a grand concert is to be held, consisting of items by Invercargill’s best talent.

Forbes and ~R. Wright are the principal officials of the club.
