Laurietoa. ' (FROM A C0BBE8P0NMENT.) The Manning River Hospital was again in receipt of pecuniary aid, to the amount of some £14 odd, by the exertions of tbe good folk of Laurieton on the evening of Friday, . 19th inst, when they (as usual) piloted to a success a varied entertainment on behalf of that institution. The programme comprised a concert, two farces — 'The Mulligan Guards' and ' The Loan of a Lover,'— and, of course, the nevnr-to-be-omitted dance as a final wind up. During the ourrency of the last-named joy a ' Hit-down' refection, pro vided in a tide pavilion, was amply patronised at ls,6d per statute adult. Although the Laurietonians have, it is to be regretted, alarmingly retaograded into tbe noncon sumption of ' O Be Joyful,' they endeavour, and with success, to make amends in the matter of solids. Appended is a copy of the programme alluded to : — Overture, violin and piano, Mr. Marchant and Mrs. J. McKay ; duett, ' Wild Waves,' Mrs. McKay and Mr. Bibby; 'song, 'Nancy...
