No ex pense will be spared ; and no provision neglected which it is possible to imagine as making for the success of the event or the enjoyment of any one individnnl. Mr. Terry will give a harbour excursion in connection with the day's outing. Of pourse there' will be racing, and sports of all kind, and feasting (and particulars as to those details will be found in another column). We shall say something further re the day's out ing in our next issue.
