I THE ROYAL TOUR. I ARRIVAL AT AUCKLAND. The Ophir and her escort arrived at Auckland. New Zealand, on Monday at noon, one day before the appointed time. All are well. The voyage of the Royal squadron from Sydney to Auckland was agreeable, if uneventful. The weather was favourable for the season of the year. During the first 24 hours the sea was somewhat rough, but the wind afterwards fell and the next two days were warm and sunny. On Saturday night and ltgain on Sunday night the ships were delayed by a slight fog. The squadron slowed down to ten knots and changed its formation to single column line ahead. Rain was falling in a steady down- pour when the Ophir and her escort entered the harbour. I THE RECEPTION AT AUCKLAND. The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York on Tuesday landed at Auckland, and had a most enthusiastic reception. Replying to an address presented by the Premier on behalf of the people of New Zealand, His Royal Highness said the readiness and promptitude with which the Govern- ment and people of the country sprang to the assistance of the Mother Land in the struggle which was unhappily proceeding in South Africa would ever be remembered with gratitude by the King and the people of the United Kingdom. Their action in that matter had proved to the world that their appreciation of the benefits they enjoyed as citizens of the British Empire would, whenever occasion arose, be shown by deeds, not words.
