PLUMSTEAD AND WOOLWICH RABBIT CLUB.

We understand that the Plumstead and Woolwich Fancy Rabbit Club, will hold their second show on Monday the 4th October, at the "Burrage Arms," Plumstead Road. The lop-eared animals to be exhibited by the Society, are, we are informed, of great beauty and length of ears, and they have five rabbits, bred this summer, which will stand a comparison with any of the same age. The rabbits are to be shown at seven o'clock in the evening.

G. Willes in returning thanks to those numerous Friends who have favoured him with their patronage for the past five years, begs to inform them and the public generally, that on Thursday last his application for a Spirit license was granted by magistrates in Petty Session, and he will therefore be enabled in future to supply Wines and Spirits of the First Quality.
