ITEMS OF NEWS. Chapel for Seamen. The committee of the Victorian Missions to Seamen has made a gen eral appeal to its supporters in Vic toria for funds to enable the mission to erect a new chlapel at the rear of the Institute in Beach-street, which is a frightfully dilapidated structure. TIle present and ulterior objects are set out in tlhe following extract from the appeal circulated:-"Our imme diate need is to abolish an old shed (formerly a Reading-room) at tlhe iack of the Institute and build onii its site (1) a suitable chapel for hold ing divine !service, and sooner or later (2) a chaplain's residence. One of the muission staff must live at Port Melbourne, this being the natural centre for overseeing the work afloat and at Williamnstown, as well as at Port Melbourne itself. To find a suitable lhouse in this district is al most an impossibility; hence a mis sion house (similar to that planned for the Central Institute) will be a very grcat gain from every point of view.
