... A meeting of the Working Men's Protection Society, was held at the Temperance Hall, Gloucester street, last evening. Mr Kilburn occupied the chair. Mr McPherson was the first speaker, and pointed out that unless the working men combined to protect themselves as a body, they would find themselves ground down. It was spread throughout England and other parts that there was plenty of work for every one in New Zealand, but let them wait until the Charlotte Gladstone and other vessels brought in their hordes of people, and they would find that the men would not be aboe to obtain work of any description. After some further remarks, Mr McPherson read the rules of the proposed society. Mr Ditford next addressed the meeting, urging the stopping of immigration at once to this province, and concluded by proposing the following resloution:- "That it is expedient that steps should be taken to stop immigration at once" This was seconded by Mr Patterson and agreed to

Fox, (late of the ship England), arrived at the Heads yesterday, at 6 a.m. from London, having made the run from land to land in 76 days, and from Gravesend in 85 days.

9 February 1871
... It will be recollected that some short time ago a yacht race took place in Lyttelton for a cup, presented by Messrs Shaw, Saville and Co., which was won by the Aspasia, owned by Captains McClatchie and LcLellan. By the Charlotte Gladstone, the cup itself has arrived, in charge of Captain Fox, and is now on view at the establishment of Messrs B. Petersen and Co. The cup stands sixteen inches high, and on one side is an embossed sea-piece, representing a yacht rounding a buoy off Godley Head Lighthouse, which is very spiritedly executed, the view having the further merit of being exceedingly true to nature. A remarkable coincidence is, that the yacht shown in the foreground bears a marked resemblance to the Aspasia, the winner of the cup. On the other side the following inscription has been engraved by Messrs Petersen and Co., on a shield left blank for that purpose:- "Canterbury Regatta, January 1871. Present by Shaw, Saville and Co., of London; won by the schooner Aspasia, 44 tons register, owned by Captains McClatchie and McLellan". In the centre of the shield is placed the flag of New Zealand, the St George's Cross, and four stars. The manner in which the engraving has been executed reflects every credit upon the establishment. The cup is really a very handsome one, and Messrs Shaw, Saville and Co. are entitled to the thanks of the community for their valuable present, the more so as it was spontaneous and unsolicited. The cup will be on view at Messrs Petersen and Co's till Monday next
