Fine Arts.— Mr. Henry Albert Frith, the distinguished photographist, who has been a resident amongst us for upwards of two years, took his departure yesterday for Melbourne by the steamer 'Black Swan.' During his sojourn here, Mr. Frith not only gained golden opinions through the excellence of his artistic achievements, but he also endeared him self in private life by his social amenities, and the gift of adapting himself to association with all classes with a facility possessed by few. Mr. Frith is invited to join his brother, who is pursuing a prosperous career in Melbourne as a photographist, and we, with a very extensive circle of his personal friends and admirers, wish him every success in the sister colony.

Mr. H. A. Frith, photographer, of Pollen-street, has succeeded in taking some splendid views of the great Maori encampment at the Kauwaeranga, although not without considerable difficulty. Many of the natives, especially the old chiefs and the old women, have a very strong objection to being photographed, and they even tried to prevent Mr Frith from taking a view of the encampment from a distant point, where it would be impossible to recognise faces. In one case, where he tried to take a view of the natives at close quarters, he was literally mobbed by five or six old and ugly native women, who had been watching and following him, for some hours before. However, by going into the bush and watching a favourable opportunity, Mr Frith succeeded in taking three splendid views, which may to seen at his studio.

We have received from Mr. H. A. Frith, photographer, Victoria-street, six photographic views of the cricket ground during the match between the Eleven of All England and twenty-two local players. The views have been taken from different points, and during different parts of the match. The photographs were taken by the instantaneous process, and are very good considering the circumstances under which they were taken - being almost free from blurs.

The presence of the flagship, H.M.S. Orlando, in Calliope Dock, when being cleaned recently, has been taken advantage by the local photographers to get a picture of her as she sat in the dock. Mr. H. A. Frith, photographer, Parnell Rise, has shown us two large views, taken on plates 12 inches by 16 inches, showing the vessel from two different points of view. The lines of the vessel and the proportions of the dock are admirably brought out, and when prints were shown to the Admiral, he stated that they were the best photographs had yet seen of the vessel.
