A new Mid revised edition has been issued of Janses Fawn and Sou's Plan of JJrUtol and its Environs, on the scale of six inches to the. mile. The map IKIS well revised and brought up to date.

FORGOT THE young couple had arranged to married at Tatworth. near Chard, on Satin-day, and tha wedding party had assembled before the altar and the service had been commenced, when it was found that the bridegroom had forgotten to bring the ring with him. The ceremony was delayed whilst a messenger was dispatched for tho all-important article, and in the end tho nuptials were completed, wnld considerable merriment among the spectators.

BRISTOL CIXOAAL Hoc of this lociety's ninth season are announced in another column. Four concerts have boon arranged. Mendel- ssohn's bo performed on November 6, Handel's "Messiah" on December IB, Gounod's "Redemption" on March 19, and Berlioz's "Faust" on April 30. The attention of subscribers is particu- larly drawn to a new rule of the society, whereby subscribers of one guinea receive one 7s. 6d. ticket for each of the concerts, and may take as many more flftt division tickets (7s. 6d.) as they may wish at the price of 6s. each. In addition, they will have the privilege of selecting their seats before tho plan is opened to the public. We understand that his Grace the Duke of Beaufort, K.G., has accepted the presidency of tho Bristol and Cilfton Philharmonic Society, and that a very strong list of vice-presidents is in course of formation. The season's work will begin in earnest this week. The instrumental section, under the conductorship of Mr. Edward Pavey, will meet at Highbury Lecture-hall on Thursday evening. The programme will include Sullivan's "Prodigal a work which has been enly once given m Bristol Haydn's Symphony in E flat, which contains a charming violin in the andante movement-, and lias not been heard in Bristol for 20 years, the last occasion being at a concert con.- ducted by Mr. Andrew Wai to and several other interesting items. The vocal section, under Mr. Edward Cook, will meet at the Blind Asylum on Mon- day, October llth. The society bids fair to have a Tery successful career.

He saw the rider take hold of the fur necklets ATHLETIC NOTES. Bristol secured a very easy wia on Saturday; in fact, the way in which they piled up the score against thu London Wanderers became monotonous, and their total of 47 points to nil IB about a record for the club. When W. T. A. tteare, who is well known amongst London sporting journalists, undertook to bring down team, it- was understood that the city officials had secured a most attractive match, because, as originally selected, tho visiting fifteen contained several Surrey county players, as well as Kipling, who was deemed worthy of a place as a forward in tho South team last season. The date, however, proved an unfortunate one, and the fact of Jllackheath having two trial mate! MS on prevented Wall is and several others from turning up, and the visitors had to find several substitutes in Bristol. Marsh took a place on the three-quarter line, and Lippett, who given a chance in the Bristol trial match a fortnight ago, also helped the Wanderers. These two men considerably assisted the losing side, and in the first half especially Marsh was prominent. But even with the help thus obtained, Scare's side never had a chance of holding the Bristol ians in check, and they generally did much as they liked. Though the match was such a one-sided affair, it must not be inferred that the victors showed any slackness. Right up to the finish tho whole team played with a dash which was very refreshing when we remember how easily matters have been taken in previous years when victory has been well assured. The greatest fault that could bo found, porhaps, was with the place kicking. Two more of the tries ought certainly to have been converted, and then the total points would have exceeded fifty. Still, the work was done rather better than usual, though room might still be found for a man possessing special ability in this direction, for two points would ofUm turn a dofeat into a victory. Tho saxue quartette did duty on the three-quarter Hno as last week against Ex mouth, and they again came through with credit, At times the passing was a little wild, and Smithson show a trifle move dash but these are faults which practice inay be confidently expected to rectify, for there is no doubt about the individual ability of the men. Gates was hardlv so clean in hia fielding of the ball as usual, though his tackling was well carried out, aiid the way in onco grassed Marsh undoubtedly prevented a certain try. The difficulty of improving upon Needs and Allen at half was made more apparent than ever, the latter being particularly smart in his tackling. It was pleasing to see Bingham again in the pack, who, led by Jarman and Inskip, .shaped very well, and on their present form it is an open question if the club ever had a bettor lot of forwards. The- way in which they combined was a revelation to rnaBy, and the good example of Jarman in following up nas borne fruit, for he is now ably supported by others, notably Thomas and Courtney. Fearco, who hails from Cwmbran, made a favourable detitt. Tho keen manner in which lie collared was a source of consider- able delight to the onlookers. With a little more experience the policeman, Kroomfield, should do well. The Wanderers would have fared even worse than they did if Marsh had not been assisting thorn. Thomson, who is brother to W. B. Thomson, the Inter- national, was uncertain, and Cunningham confined himself chiefly to tackling, which he did very well. In the loose the visiting pack dribbled well, and their collaring was certainly a lesson to some of our for- wards. It is a significant fact that, while the first team was compiling a huge score at the County Ground, the reserves were doing almost as wdl at Sheptori Mullet, where they scored 44- points, while the extra XV. also obtained in one day 114 points were placed to the credit of the club. gate only amounting to 10s. Now it is customary for all the expenses of tho out-and-horae games to bo deducted from the receipts, and the Mniftciair6 takes the 'balance. As the expenditure in this case amounted to Roberts would only have got but it was obvious such a sum was totally inadequate, and the question tho committee had to deal with was to what extent that should be supple- mented At first it was suggested that tho cost of tho match afc Lord's should be excluded, and then came a proposal that the club should simply take a round sum, like twenty-five guineas. That met with general approval, so Roberts will receive from the county to supplement hia subscription lists, sojio will be very much better off tliau was at one time expected. Another matter which came before the meeting was the arranging of matches with Essex. C. K. Green was anxious to secure fixtures with Gloucestershire, and we are gLid the committee were able to arrange them, for they arc sure to prove attract! ve SATURDAY'S FOOTBALL.

At Rrarafitll-lane, Bheincld, the Ikuy team opposed Sheffield United, before people. To the general surprise tho only goal of the first halt was one to Bury, but United succeeded in drawing level afterwards, aud the game ended in a draw of one each. WOLVEIUIAMPTON V.

We had been led to expect great things from the Warmiey forwards, but wo did not ecc them. Of course the presence of two now men, like and Woodfi, may have upset the others yet it would not account for tho blunders which Manson and Rrowitt made, or for tho utter lack of combination between the latter and Bishop. Sawyer is said to be an Inter- national who lias not played for two ycara, and we can quite believe it, as he never did anything to help his Bide. Under these circumstances, the Rovers made a great mistake in never trying to play their own game. Had they done so, they would have won easily. They have three competent .halves, all of whom did very well indeed, two useful backs, and a smart goal-keeper. Thmr defence was, therefore, quite capable of Keeping their opponents, on thf) day's form, in check, and it was only nucpssary for their forwards to settle down to their work for goals to havfi come. But that is just what tbe forwards could not do. Green was again a failure in Uie centre, and ho was not much hotter on the wing. Jones, Glithero, ami Oottell were also very erratic in their shooting, organ, with the result that no goals were scored. In fact, we cannot recall a mutch in which both wets of forwards had BO many chances and yet gave tho goal-keepers so httje trouble.

The weather was fine, amfa fair num- ber of spectators were present. The visitors had to make numerous alterations in their and several Bristol players were requisitioned to till vacancies, Tho Wanderers kicked off, and five miuuies after the start Bingham led a good forward rush. Smithson then picked upind passed to Husscy, and in Lhelooso play which followed Jarman jot over close to tlie ba.r, Percy Hussey converting the tiy. The visiting forwards took play into the home twenty-tiro, bufc were soon driven back, Jarniauwas applauded for clever work ia the open, autl scoring seemed likely, from nice bit of passing between Allen iind, Needs..Regffie. Husf5ey fumbled. Needs went off on his own, and shortly afterwards Percy Hussey got in a and the ball, bouncing was missed by Beare, and Bingham, who was well up, scored a try in the far corner, which Einithspn made a brilliant effort to improve upon, but just failed. Marsh made an attempt to score for the Londoners, but knocked on, aud then Jarinan pieted up, and, passing to Percy Huesey, that player narrowly missed scoring. Play ruled very one-sided, the Bristol forwards having matters their own way. and in the liaes-out Biugham greatly distinguished himself. Needs dribbled all along the line, and Marsh saved. Thomson on the other side cleverly intercepted a pass from Needs, but the three-quarter was promptly grassed by Poarcc. Thomas came right through a scrum, and Needs made cfi'ort to put Bristol still further ahead. A really brilliant bit of work followed from ji pass by Smithson to Allen, who handed the bal! imely ou to Pars on a, who transferred to Percy Hussey, aud the latter scored, and also converted. For the next ten mitnites piny was close to tho visit-era1 line, and when the 25 mark way readied the Brothers H assay, by asejful rtius, transferred play to the line agatu. Gates had an unsuccessful drop at goal, and Courtney led tlie forwards iii tho looset and, picking up, passed to Parsons .who, If had fielded the ball, would have been a certain scorer. As it was, Marsh came to the rescue, and removed all dan J nat bef o re hal f-time Thomas and Courtney came up the ex-Bristol North man scored. A little variety infused into the match by the visiting forwards taking the same to the other end? but the relief was only temporary, for Percy Husscy punted vreJl, and his brother tip and scored, though the placo easy missed. Parsons was the noxt to score, and Surithson nicely converted. Cunningham passed to Thomson when near thctfiome liact but Inakip came to the rescue, Thomson maUe a good fittempt to BGOI-O a little later. A splendid movement was initiatecl by Kectis, stiici con- tinued by Fftraons, Percy and Keggic Hussey, tho latter grounding the oval right under the post> though Smiths on failed at the place Kick. Gates had another chance to drop a goal, but tiitl not succeed. A passing bout, ia which four the forwards, besides Allen, took part, nearly ended in a try. The- eighth try foil to Reggie Hwssey, and he scored the major points also. March had only tlie back to pass to score, wheq Gates' brought him clown nicely. For the remainder of the match the Londoners were kept strictly on the defen- sive, but the Bristol men were intent on running up a big total, and this was accomplished by Parsons, Needs, and Biugham registering tries in succession, and two of these were converted, making tlio final 7 firoals 4 tries (47 London Wanderers, nil.

James gob away from a scrum, bnt.thoughhelost the ball J5ostock-6mitb picked up and scored. Baker failed with the place kick. Knowle gradually worked towards the home goal line, and had a line chance, when they ivere penalised. The ball was sent back, and soon after Clifton hadanother Tree kick awarded them, and from this thoy xvorked their way welt into the Knowle guartera. At this period oi tlie jiame Binnott was badly injured, receiving a. nasty kick 011 tho knee, wliich caused liim to retire. Clifton, however, went to work harder than ever, James scored in a splendid position, from wliich Uats had no difficulty in kicking a goal. Baker got tho bafl from the kick-oil, aud lost a good openiujf by keeping it too long. This let Knowle in, but they were forced to retire. They came again, and this time Lias had to touch down.

(To the Editor of tfa Bristol Times and Mirrw.) wave of meretricious enthusiasm which has recently passed over our city, threatening to over- whelm it, has now somewhat subsided, and shortly we shall be settled down to our usual business-like calmness and regularity. In the meantime, however, ifc would appear desirable, in view of a recurrence of this phenomenon, to fortify tlio minds of the citizens by assuaging their fears as to its being of a dangerous nature. At this juncture it would be desirable that the citizens (tho old and tbe newly-fledged ones) should know how they stand as regards their debt on the Dock Estate, and how insinuatingly it is yearly increasing in volume. It might be considered a matter of ancient history to recapitulate the many works in progress and sauctioied by the Town Council for the improvement of the port, The New Cut Railway and Timber Yawl scheme will, in conjunction with tlie Caomui'-marsh Railway (when Uie land is not cost the city less than In the river we are spending on menus For the pontoons (which nobody And lighting the riTer (which nobody asked At Avonmouth, the lengthening of the lock for the accommodation of the largest cargo-carrying steamers now afloat, the building of a granary, the provision of cold storage warehouses, new jetties for loading barges in Uie river, and the extension of Avonmouth we shall incur an outlay of over making m all something like a half-million of money. Some may say that many of these expenditures will be of a remunerative character, and will pay the interest (and sinking fund) on the outlay. Our past experience Jias proved that the citizens "have had to moke good the losses on the docks. At tho close of the last financial year (April last) the docks had cost the citizens first and last the sum of Of thw sum, wiw added dunpg the year ending at that date, and it may be confidently assumed that within the aext two years ratc we aro uow Progressing) the civic indebtedness on account of our Dock Estate wil1 be fully three millions. There are two matters which deserve immediate attention. They The cutting off the Horse Shoe Bend and the removal of tbe sewage from the river, which, conjointly, have been estimated to cost The Horse Shoe Bend is impediment to our present Bristol fact, a danger which cannot be much longer tolerated. The sewage will demons- trate its presence at any time the paddles of an imcoming steamer stirs it up, and speaks louder than i can for its immediate removal. All these improve- ments cost money, and it is the general impression that our rates are already far too high. But a new erase has developed itself in the minds of some of our citizens, who generally pose at municipal election times as the guardians of the ratepayers' interests. They wish for an expenditure of another million and a half, which would entail a ratc of a shilling in the pound additional to the present heavy rates; without taking into consideration the expendi- ture of half a million which the Council has already sanctioned for the improvements already iu arjd unpaid for. fe This is a question that the ratepayers and property owners ot the city will have to fy.ce, and face boldly, the next municipal elections, or tht-v certainly will be saddled with a debt from which there is no in- relief- The only persons benefited will be the shipowners, by the construction of more docks ait the mouth of the river. Avoamouth Dock will be capable of receiving the largest vessel afloat in June next. The Montealm lias alreadv entered Uie dock and left it in perfect safety, and in spite oi1 the torrential rains which prevented any discharge of cargo for 18 Iwurs, she left at her appointed time. having had as quick dispatch in unloading as she could gefc at any port in the world. The moraine alter she left Avonmouth there was not 200 tons of her cargo remaining to be trucked to its destination. The shipowner having a steamer of tons dead weight capacity saves some 40 per cent, on lie r working as compared with three steamers of 4-fpOO tons carrying into consideration the pnme cost of the three steamers as compared with the one, the cost of workiug and maintenance, and the relative amount of coals consumed per ton of cargo carried. There are only one set of officers and engineers to be paovided as compared with three in the smaller is only in the stokehole and on deck that a few more men are needed. Then if he can get at the dpckowcers for a big discount off his dues for patronising their dock, say, 10 per cent., his fortune is made in a very short time, for he caii work his ship at about one-half of the cost of other vessels. trust our City Fathers will reconsider their determination to rush this new dock construo tion-at Avonmouth. If they do not, the citizens must assert their rights by demanding a poll of the city when the proper time comes. A prospective rate of nearly nine shillings in tbe pound would soon de- populate our city, and a rush would be made to outside the added area. Yours, _______________ HOTWEU.S. DISTBICT NEWS. BATH.
