Transcriptions taken from the Hawke's Bay Weekly Times which was published
for 2 years only. 1867 and 1868. All available papers will be transcribed.
The Hawke's Bay Weekly Times was first published on 6 February 1865. It was published weekly as a summary of the stories in the Hawke's Bay Times in the previous week. The paper was intended as a cheap alternative to the daily version for people living in the isolated rural areas of Hawke's Bay but it struggled to survive and finally stopped publishing in December 1868.
7 January-Missing Issues
Marriage of Miss Mc LEAN- The following is from the New
Zealand Advertiser, of the 11th instant; The holy bands of matrimony were
celebrated yesterday morning in the new Scotch Church Lambton Quay, between
of the oldest and most respected settlers in this Colony, Robert HART,
Esq., . The Rev Mr MUIR officiated upon the occasion, and great interest
appeared to be manifested with regard to it, not only by the personal
friends of the bridge and bridegroom, but also by the public generally.
The church was thronged by spectators, and we noticed that there were
present many of the elite of the city. After the friends of the newly
married pair had partaken of the wedding "breakfast," at the
residence of Mr STRANG, the happy couple drove off to Blackie's Horokiwi
Valley where they will spend their Honeymoon.

Singular Fatal Accident-The Tuapeka Press gives a account of a fatal accident which occurred a short time back at the Tuapeka Mouth Saw Mills, belonging to McCOLL, BUCHANAN & Co., to one David ______?*. It appears, that on the Monday, 24th ult, the deceased, while standing on the travelling bench, reached over to turn on a jet of water to cool the saw, when one of the other men turned back the crank causing the bench to travel in the contrary direction without his being aware of it. This bought his left elbow into contact with the large circular saw, and cut the bone right through. In trying to extricate himself the unfortunate man brought his other arm against the saw, and severed all the muscular parts in front of the arm, cutting through the blood vessels etc. He was immediately taken to Tuapeka Hospital (a distance of 15 miles) arriving there at 4 o'clock the next morning. Resident surgeon Dr STEWART, sent for Dr HALLEY, the honorary surgeon, and they decided upon a! mputating the left arm. The right arm was then dressed, but the poor sufferer was so weka from immense loss of blood he sunk under the shock about 2 p.m. next day, and was buried on the Thursday following. He was followed to the grave by a large concourse of persons.

A young fellow MORGAN observing the rope when it broke because it was old and rotten, made his dash at the end, which he caught it was disappearing into the surf, and was aided by a score of willing hands, succeeded in hauling the two men to shore. Vincent immediately taken to camp, and at a later hour appeared before the Resident Magistrate, but only to be remanded until the young woman could appear in evidence against him. She having been attended by Dr DERMOTT. Was pronounced to be dangerously- but not fatally wounded, and is now lying at the Provincial Hotel, with every chance of recovery. The knife was picked up after it was thrown down by VINCENT. It is a formidable weapon, having ma blade nine inches in length, and is stained with blood six inches from the point. The intrepid conduct of Constable RICE is deserving of the highest praise, as he placed his own life in jeopardy to bring the offender to justice.
