PALM SUNDAY.—In accordance with the Csual custom, crowds of people were to be seen Ending their way to the cemeteries on Sunday last. From an early hour hundreds flocked towards the two burial grounds, carrying wreaths, crosses, harps, etc. Beautiful blooms in pots seemed to predominate. In the after- noon the many hundreds of visitors to the cemetery were charmed with the beauty of taste and colouring that the flowers presented. By far the greater number of people were to be seen at the old cemetery, the new one only recently having been opened. Everything that love and labour could do had been done, and the result more than justified their la bours.

PATRICK'S DAY.—On Thursday last the children of St. Mary's Roman Catholic Schools were given a holiday in honour of the Patron Saint of Ireland, St. Patrick. A crowded con- gregation attended the early morning service, when the Rev. Father Irvine delivered a very eloquent scrwon appropriate ot the day. In the evening a miscellaneous concert was given by Ihe school children, at the Young Men's Rooms, Napier-street, and again there was a crowded Audience, and right well did the little ones Acquit themselves. The eight little maids, tI.8 Japanese girls from the Mikado took all hearts by storm. The little mites ranged from to 7 years old. The costumes of the six Little Snowflakes" were particularly sweet, to were the little singers themselves. It would be unwise to single out one item for special Mention. Praise is due to Father Irvine and all who generously helped him towards making the evening such a perfect success. The stage was very prettily arranged, the scenery, which bad been painted by the head-mistress, Miss Hales, was much commented upon- At the earnest request of a number of friends, th# nttle ones will give a second performance on nLut-Monday:
