It is very evident from the above analysis that most of the Inspectors, who are disinterested persons with special facilities for observation believe it would be advantageous to raise the school age, while the Educational and Teachers’ Institutes are naturally opposed to a step which would tend to lessen the salaries of teachers.

Letter from Jeremiah TIDDLER
Dated 12th Jan 1888
Taradale.

The Wellington Correspondent of the Auckland Star writes-"Many Aucklanders who were acquainted with the late Mr George ADAMS, for some time in the New Zealand Herald Office, and more recently on the Hansard reporting staff, will no doubt be interested to learn he has left his property, valued at about 2000 pounds to a married lady in Wellington whom he had known for years. Nothing whatsoever has been left for his sister and a widowed mother in England, who have been supported by him for years past. About a year ago he made a will leaving his property to a friend in Auckland and his sister and mother, but it seems that later on he caused another to be drawn bequeathing everything to his lady friend. The existence of a second will was unknown to most of his friends, and great was their surprise when it was discovered in the Bank of New Zealand after his death.
It is reported that steps are to be taken by a brother who is living near Napier to upset the later will, but on what grounds I have not heard."

Deaths St ’CLAIR-At Farndon on the 11th Jan 1888. James MOORE St. CLAIR, aged 37. Deeply regretted. The funeral will leave St Mary’s Church this day (Monday), at 10 o’clock, after the service in the Church. W.M. NEWMAN, Undertaker.

D’AUTHREAU.-At White road Napier, on the 15th January, Robert Schular D’AUTHREAU, AGED 7 YEARS.

Mr St CLAIR had gone to Farndon on business on Friday, thence proceeding to Tomoana, whence he returned to Farndon in the evening and dined at the Farndon Hotel. He complained of not feeling well, and retired to bed asking not to be disturbed early.

Mr SMITH, who was absent during Saturday morning, on returning at 12.45 a.m., was informed that Mr St CLAIR had not left his room, and fearing something was amiss he entered the bedroom and found him lying dead in bed. A book which he had been reading lay on his lap, where it had fallen from his hand, the other hand was supporting his head, and his countenance was perfectly placid, as though he was in a sound sleep. The police were at once communicated with, but Dr MOORE, who had been attending deceased for some time past, certified that death resulted from consumption. In consequence no inquest was necessary., and the body was brought up to his residence in Coote road.

Mr St CLAIR was well known and universally respected throughout Hawke’s Bay, and was probably without an enemy. He was one of the quiet units which form the real strength of the State, and in every way a most exemplary citizen whose loss will be severely felt by all those who have been in contact with him.. He had been a sufferer for some time from consumption, the result of fever, and had on several occasions ruptured blood vessels, but though from these causes his life has been often hanging by a thread, a splendid constitution developed in a life of seafaring adventure enabled him to rapidly recover strength after each new attack. Last winter he was at death’s door as the consequence of his bursting a blood vessel, and one of his lungs became entirely useless. He recovered rapidly however, and while convalescent he visited Ormondville, whence he left on a Tuesday morning for Makatoku. Encouraged by a feeling of returning health he wandered off into the bush, and in cr!
ossing the creek fell and lost power over his limbs. He lay where he fell until the following Thursday evening and managed to crawl out to the settlement. During this interval occurred a heavy fall of snow which resulted in a severe relapse due to exposure, however he apparently had recovered and during the past few weeks he was in excellent health and spirits.

The end came unexpectedly as related above. Deceased leaves a widow and three young children to mourn his death at the aged of 37.

The funeral will leave the Catholic Church at 10 o’clock this morning.

We are indebted to Mr E LYNDON for a most interesting sketch of Tennyson street as it appeared in 1861. It is very difficult to recognise in it even the topographical features, so great is the difference between then and now. The hill, now dotted with houses surrounded by tall trees, was then divided into several grass paddocks, and only at the foot were there any trees, and those very young. The buildings in the street were the office of the Registrar of Deeds, a small wooden building in which the Herald was printed by Mr WOODS,
Mr TIFFEN's original house, Mr J ANDERSON's cottage on the site now occupied by St John's parsonage, The Rev Mr MARSHALL;'s house, subsequently occupied by
Dr SPENCER, and, in the background, Mr SEALY's original house on the site where Mr THOMPSON's residence is now, and a little building used as a Land office, near the present site. To the left of the sketch, and across the gully which is now Milton road, is seen the Rev W COLENSO's house. The space in front, now occupied by the south side of Tennyson street and by Emerson Street, appears as a waste piece of ground absolutely devoid of buildings.

Fatal accident at the Breakwater

A sad fatality occurred yesterday morning. A gang of eight men under Mr STUMBLES, were at work on the blocks laid to receive the upper monolith, in apparent safety, as the waves dashed a little spray over them now and then. Suddenly, without any warning, three huge rollers came in, knocking down all the men, several of whom had great difficulty in saving their lives by clinging to the blocks or bags of shingle Mr STUMBLES, who was temporarily dazed, as soon as he recovered himself called out to know whether all the men were safe. It was then found that one named Luke Thomas OSBORNE was missing. A buoy kept for such emergencies on the front of the steam crane, was promptly thrown to OSBORNE by the engineer, and it fell within a yard or two of him, but he failed to reach it. In the meantime Mr STUMBLES, who is not himself a swimmer, called out to know whether none of the dozen on the breakwater could swim, but all replied in the negative. By this time the news had reach!
ed a gang of men mixing concrete at the foot of the breakwater, and one, a young man named . William MYER, immediately ran out and plunged into the sea, making the most strenuous exertions to reach OSBORNE, who was by then 100 hundred yards away. Those who were anxiously watching on shore say that MYER half raised his body out of the water by his powerful strokes, and he got within six yards of OSBORNE when the latter disappeared, and did not rise again.. MYER swam about the sport for some time and then returned to land. A boat was got out and drags used, but, the bottom being uneven and rocky, the body was not recovered. ................more.

OSBORNE was a fine athletic man of about 32 years of age, a native of Devonshire, and a bachelor. He had worked for Mr STUMBLES for eighteen months, coming up from Timaru. He was a very steady man, and had saved a considerable sum of money, besides insuring his life for 300 pounds in the Government Life Insurance Office. He left a will, bequeathing all his property to brothers and sisters in Devonshire.

A team of visitors drawn from distant corners of the world will contend with the cricketers of Napier this afternoon upon the cricket field. It is wonderful to see how the national game of England has become acclimatised in different lands. In the team which is to do battle with our cricketers today there are players from the frozen north and the tropical Islands. We can but express our pleasure at seeing representatives of so many countries and races assembling in Napier to join in the noble English game of cricket. The names of our visitors show the prevalence of the ubiquitous Scotchman in every land. The following is the team:-
