WELLINGTON HOSPITAL. (To Vie Editor.) 8ir,— Will you be good enough to allow mo a little space in your valuable publication to make a few 'suggestions to bIiow there would be no difficulty in raising fuuds for tbe Wellington Hospital, and which, if carried out, would lift that institution to the level; at all events, of smaller and more insigni tlcant townships. Firstly, removo the situ to one more suitable on both hygienic and usthetic grounds. Secondly, place all the medical centlomen in the bVHU 1«|IUI1 I.IID OI'Mll t.O IIUIlUIItlJT pUJ'CIHUUB. Thirdly, with the money thus saved obtain the Borvicos of a proporly qualified matron and two or more probationary nurses. I am quito sure that all theso suggestions are practicable, and thnt if carried out the Hospital would gain iramonsoly in ofliciency and in funds, and thoso. unfortunates who aro compelled to utilise such institutions would benefit in corresponding ratio. — Youre, etc., ? 1, 1; ???.'.?.

Protestant Alliance Dance. The annual social in connection with Wellington Lodge No. 82 of the Proteotant Alliance Friendly Society of Australasia, was held in the Protestant Hall last night, and proved a very great buccobp. It was probably the largest dance of the season, and was certainly one of the most enjoyable. It is estimated that there were 5& couples up in some dances,' and although this meant a good deal of crowding, entailing an amount of hard knocks to the dancer*, the ulmoat cordiality was everywhere apparent, and no note waa struck to mar tho harmony of the evening. Many pretty and taste ful costumeB were worn by he ladies, and tho ball had quite a gay and animated appearance. Excellent music was supplied by Mr. Perkins, and extras were played by Miss Murphy, Mr. HobertBon and Mr. Welle the supper arrangements were in tho hands of Megdamee Ewer and Thorncraf t, and were carried out in a highly creditable manner.

Fortunately, every body waB in good humour, and everybody eeemod to have gono there to thoroughly enjoy themselves, whatever the weather might be. The proprietor of the hall had done his best to make the floor good, and by stopping tho dancing twice during the even ing and having the floor thoroughly swept, the M.O. (Mr. W.

I SUNTOP. (From our own correspondent.) I have been silent of late on account of not having anything very interesting to relate. Wo had a very welcome shower of rain on Sunday, which haB given every thing a spiing-liko appearance. The early sown crops are looking well, the late sown have not done so well, no doubt on account of the heavy frosts wo have ezperionccd for tho past week or two. Last week put an end to the ploughing and sowing in this district; it is late, but there was new land ploughed and sowed on tho 2nd day of August last season that yielded threo bag9 to the acre. There is no doubt oarly sowing has the advantage.. The Snntop and Pohto Farmers' Uuion held a very lively and interesting mooting at Mr. S. Jackson'B, Ponto, on Saturday night, 29th July. There was a motion passed at the last meeting, which was the opinion of tho meeting, that any one want ing land should bo allowed to apply for same by post, after making a declaration and paying deposit to local land agen...

There were more than thirty ladies present, and the greatest interest and enthusiasm was displayed in con no doubt now of the ultimate success of the undertaking, because when the sympathies of the fair box are enlisted the first and most important point is gained.
