LIVERPOOL AUTWMN EXHIBITION.—The local artists represented at the autumn exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, include Miss Ada Dennis, of Nicholas-street, Chester, who exhibits an admirably executed miniature portrait. SAD CARRIAGE ACCIDENT.—By a car- riage accident at Turriff, Aberdeenshire, on Friday afternoon, Mrs. Julian Ainslie, wife of Mr. Julian Ainslie, of Dalgety, landed proprietor, was killed. Miss Ainslie was badly injured, and the coachman seriously hurt. It appears that one of the ladies, who was driving, lost control of the horse near the railway bridge over the Deveron. The animal ran on the bridge, and the vehicle came into contact with the parapet, throwing Mrs. and Miss Ainslie and the coachman on to the rocks at the edge of the water, a distance of 40ft. MANCHESTER SHIP CAVAL.—The half-yearly meeting of the Manchester Ship Canal Company was held on Tuesday. Mr. Bythell made a long statement as to the position and prospects of the undertaking. He had to confess to some disappointment at the rate of progress they were making, and sighed that they had no trading powers and no capital with which to lead the way in bringing trade to the canal. He mentioned the tank oil trade as an example of the time needed to establish a new line of traffic. Negotiations had been going on since before the opening of the canal to secure a share of this trade, but no practical step was taken till last November. Now three oil com- panies were building tanks on the banks of the canal. But for the great capital outlay, and the expense of maintenance, he thought the general progress of the undertaking would be regarded as satisfactory. There would have been a profit this half-year of about £6,000 but for exceptional items of expenditure; and if in the ensuing half-year the increase of traffic was at the same rate as in the corresponding pericd last year, he anticipated profit of £30,000. Some criticism with regard to the staff was made by one of the shareholders, and by another it was suggested that the time had come when the canal should be taken over by a I public trust. The directors' report W8.I adopted.
