(From Our Own Correspondent)

Church Service

After a long interval, Ngunguru was visited on Sunday last by the Rev. Mr Marsh, who held a morning service for the natives at their settlement, a good number being present. He was to have held a service for the Europeans in the school in the afternoon, but on account of the weather no one turned up. Mr Long, Baptist Missionary, also appeared, but he, too, had to abandon his service. The labourers were plentiful, but the harvest was scarce.


A visit from the County Surveyor or even from the Riding Councillor would be acceptable at the present. The roads are in a very bad state. Now is the time to inspect them, and find out what is actually wanted. As in old times, we have to wait for the tide to recede before we can get from ono place to another.
