City Improvements.
The block of wooden buildings in High -street belonging to Messrs H. J. Hall and A. Simpson, lately destroyed by fire, are to be replaced by handsome stone structures. Plans for the purpose have been prepared by Mr A. W. Simpson, architect, and the contract for erection has been let to Mr J. Greig. The two buildings are uniform in style, and contain two storeys. The lower part of the fronts is of Hoon Hay blue stone, while White rock stone is used in the upper portion, which is divided by Corinthian pilasters, supporting a frieze and entablature, with a moulded and bracketted cornice and balustrade. The central portion of each front projects slightly, and is capped with a semi-circular pediment, above which is an ornamental entablature. The windows, of plate glass, are various in shape, those in the centre being circularheaded, while others have square heads.

At the sides of the windows are small Corinthian mullions, and above them are recessed panels of carved stone. Beneath the windows is another moulding. The upper storey fronts are supported on iron girders, resting on blue stone piers, and ornamental cast iron columns. The windows of the ground floor are of plate glass, those in Mr Simpson's premises having panes 12ft by 8ft, with frames of carved and polished cedar. A handsome verandah will run along the whole width of both fronts.

In Mr Hall's premises an entrance hall 8ft wide, in the centre of the front, communicates with a staircase leading to the upper storey, and also with the steps going down to the basement. A passage leads from the hall to the back yard and lavatories. The basement or cellar is about 63ft long, 36ft wide, and 8ft in height. At each aide of the main entrance is shop 14ft wide in front, and extending back for a distance of 64ft. These shops are unusually lofty, being 16ft from floor to ceiling.

In the back portion of the upper floor is a photographic studio, a room 32ft in length, 14ft wide and 15ft 9in high, with a ground glass window at the side of the room about 19ft wide. This room is carefully ventilated with two large ventilators and several air flues. Attached are dressing and waiting rooms, dark chamber with sink and water supply, a room for printing, and all other requirements of a completely fitted photographic studio.

In the front are two suites of rooms that could be used as offices or other purposes, one suite being especially designed to meet the requirements of a dentist's business. Lavatories and other conveniences have been provided. The staircase, passage and some of the rooms are lighted by means of a large skylight.

The ground floor of Mr Simpson's building contains one large shop, about 30ft wide, 80ft deep, and 16ft in height, so constructed that it can be separated into two shops if required. From the back of this shop a staircase communicates with the upper floor, where there is a large show room 80ft in length, 30ft wide, and 15ft 9in from floor to ceiling. On the landing at the top of the staircase is a lavatory, &c.

Behind the building is a small triangular yard, concreted, and containing the necessary out-offices. A large cellar 80ft by 30ft, is situated under the shop, and is approached by a staircase from a right-of-way at the back. It may be noted that, though the buildings are only of two storeys, provision has been made for the addition of a third storey, if required, the -walls having been made sufficiently thick for the purpose. The height of the present front is about 40ft from ground to top of coping.

Arrived Wellington on the magnificent Clipper ship "Oliver Lang" 2500 tons 18 September 1858 from London



The Black Ball Clipper Oliver Lang, Captain Mundle, arrived in port this morning from London, after a remarkably quick passage of 85 days from Plymouth. She brings 60 Cabin and about 240 steerage Passengers. One death and one birth occurred on board during the voyage. The passage has been very pleasant one and [all] the passengers speak in high terms of the kindness and attention of Captain Mundle, and also of the Surgeon Dr. Morton.


She left Gravesend on the 18th June, anchored in the Downs, and passed Plymouth on the 25th. When in Latitude 20s., Long. 24 W., a slight collision took place between the Oliver Lang, and the Hamburg barque Shon, from Santos, bound to Hamburg. The figure head and part of the Shon's jib-boom were left on the Oliver Lang's deck; and a few stancheous and covering board belonging to the latter were carried away. After the accident, Captain Mundle boarded the Shon, to see if she was making water; found she was all right, and forwarded letter home by her. The Oliver Lang did not sight land after leaving the English Channel until sighting D'Urville's Island yesterday morning. About 30 of the passengers are for Canterbury, eight for Nelson, and the reminder for this place.

Mr J. C. Vogel. Another old Canterbury pioneer, Mr John Conrad Vogel, of Worcester street East, passed away on Tuesday of last, week. Mr Vogel, who was 79 years old at the time of his death, arrived in Canterbury by the sailing vessel Oliver Lang in October, 1859 [sic].



For some years he carried on the business of baker, but subsequently he took up dairying, an occupation which he followed until two years ago, when he retired.



Mr Vogel was twice married his first wife being Miss Martha Allen who was a passenger by the Cressy, one of the historic first four ships. she died over thirty years ago. Mr Vogel subsequently married Miss Elizabeth Lawrence, who, by a strange coincidence, died the same day as himself, her aged being 84 years.



Mr Vogel was one of the oldest and most active member of the Ancient Order of Foresters. 

Mr and Mrs Vogel were buried in Linwood Cemetery on Friday last, in the presence of a large gathering of mourners, the Rev. R. S. Gray conducting the burial services. Mr and Mrs Vogel leave one son, six daughters, thirty-nine grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
