THE INTIERNATIONAEl EXIIII3ITIOQN. (Fnot LLOYD'S WEEKLY.) The rush of goods int6 tise building hIas not yet commenced. The most remote of our colonies seem to be the first in the field. St. Helena followed close upon the goods from Liberia On Saturday, the col lection from Prince Edward island was depiosited in the French court, and on Wednesday that from New foundluland. These latter, of course, consist entirely of colonial produce, but, among other specimens from Prince Edward island, is one which may be fairly called it wonddrful natural curiosity. It is the largest and longest'spar thaIt has ever been seen in this or any other country. That at Kew-gardens, 190 feet high, was thought to be the largest single stick that was ever seen, but this gigantic pole from Prince Edward island completely dwarfs it, being no less than 240 feet froi end to end. Placed straight on end by the side of the Monument it would overtop even that lofty column by thirty eight feet. Of course; it cannot ...

MUNICIPAL IMPROVEMIENTS. Br'b our report of the last meeting of the Hawthorn Municipal Council it will be seen that. the Public Works Committee have brought up a voluminous report of works to be carried on; and now the necessity of these works being proceeded with shows the folly of strikin'g a rate so inadequate to the wants of the Municipality. .What the probable cost of the proposed works wvill be of, course we cannot profess to say-probably twelve or fifteen hundred pounds-and to flird out where the money is to come from will require all.the ingenuitylof the.Council. The rbport is to be discussed at 'their next meeting, and no doubt it will incite a number of ratepayers to be present on the occasion. One gentleman, who has been active in opposition to almost all the works in the dis trict, is expected to be quiet now, as it was slily hinted by the Chairman that his opposi tion had beei bought off--his pet idea being one of the first of the works to be carried out.
