Mr Hall's well-known taste in art and practical knowledge in the manufactures will make him a valuable member of the council.

Messrs. Mappin and Webb, of Oxford-street the well-known manufacturing silversmiths, have a most unique and attractive display of challenge cups and trophies manufactured by them to special order. Amongst others we note the celebrated "Elsenham'' cup presented to the Shire Horse Society by Walter Gilbey, Esq. This firm also exhibit a very complete collection of miniatures of celebrated horses modelled in solid silver, not to mention almost every variety of medals and medallions struck for the Hackney Horse Show, Hunters' Improvement Society, and Shire Horse Society. Besides numerous works of art appertaining especially to Agricultural subjects, their exhibits of testimonial plate in general calls for more than a passing inspection including, as it does, many rare examples of silversmiths' art. In fact this enterprising firm continue amply to sustain the high reputation which they have made for this branch of art work, not only under their own name, but also In that of Stephen Smith and Son, of which well-known house they are also the proprietors.

NEW ZEALAND

The valuable trophy which is to be presented to the owner of the winner of the Wellington Cup on the 22nd inst., will take the form of a massive punch bowl containing 140ozs of silver. It was made by the celebrated firm of Mappin & Webb, and was purchased in London by Mr. W. V. Jackson, formerly treasurer of the club, at the request of the Stewards, for the sum ot £100. The trophy, which is nearly 2ft high, is mounted on a handsome ebony stand, and is surmounted by the figure of a racehorse. It is a beautiful specimen of the silversmith's art, and will no doubt be eagerly prized. Those who wish to view it will have an opportunity of doing so to-morrow, as it is to be placed on exhibition in Mr. Batkin's window, Lambton-quay.
