Alfred BENNETT, contractor, was killed through his horses bolting

Needless alarm was caused by a report that Mr DECK, a retired dentist, residing on Stewart Island, had with his wife and son started in an open boat to cross the strait and were missing. It seemed that he had no inclination or intention to cross the strait he was seen in the bay sailing on the way to visit and P WILLIAM assumed he had crossed the strait and reported accordingly.
Mr J DILLON and Sir Thomas ESMONDE are in Hawke's Bay.

The attention of the latter is drawn to the fact that reports of evictions on his estate have appeared in New Zealand since he came to it, and the attention of both is directed to the equally interesting fact that Charles Stewart PARNELL'S mother is alleged to be starving in America, and that her son is unable to help her because he has given all his money to the cause of Ireland.

If Mr DILLON and Sir Thomas ESMONDE, both of whom are said by their admirers to be men of independent means, will send a trifle from their abundance to the destitute mother of the man who has given all his substance to wipe out what must be considered a disgraceful blot. Also if they would inform the public what has become of Mr PARNELL'S own estate in IRELAND, which was a few months ago estimated to be worth £39,000, That public will know whether to pardon the lover of "the cause" or not on his mother's account.

Mr PARNELL, it is said lived six years in the house of Captain O'SHEA. He was either there as a guest, or he paid for his entertainment. If he did not pay, he should have plenty to spare for his mother; if he did pay, he might still have had a little for her by submitting to endure less expensive lodgings.

HBH Jan 9 1890 p2 Hone WAITERE

Hone WAITERE, the oldest chief of the NGATIMANIAPOTO tribe, died on Thursday last week, at the settlement of his son, RANGITUATEA, on the PUNIU river.

Deceased was second cousin to Rewi MANIAPOTOT, and closely related to Hopa te RANUANUNI, but considerably older, for, as REWI states, the deceased was a young man, having taken part in many battles, when he (REWI) was only a infant.

The deceased must have been over 90 years of age at the time of his death, as REWI is about 76 years of age now, if not a little more.

He was one of the braves warriors of the NGATIMANIAPOTO, and in the wars with the tribes to the south captured many prisoners, who became his slaves.

On the introduction of Christianity into the district he was induced by the resident missionary, the Rev Mr MORGAN, to release them, and to allow them to return to their various tribes.

Some 24 took advantage of their emancipation, and were escorted to their old homes at TARANAKI and WANGANUI by RANGITUATEA, son of deceased.

Others preferred to remain with their master, not caring to return to their relatives to take up a degraded position.
The Rev C E BEECROFT sends us a letter covering a copy of a letter received by him from ENGLAND, thanking him for the Bank draft for £25 raised by his exertions in aid of the poor of East LONDON. The money we gather from the letter is to be applied to giving sixpenny tickets to needy applicants in the CANNING Town and SILVERTOWN districts.

The chairman of the Hospital Board has received what must be considered a "very warm" letter from Mr EAKINS, referring to the rejection of his tender for the supply of drugs to the hospital, and demanding to see the tenders. The sub-committee who went over the tenders decided that the proper place for Mr EAKIN'S letter was the waste paper basket.

This evening the Rev C E BEECROFT will deliver a lecture in WATERWORTH'S Hall in aid of the BARTLETT fund.

COLEMAN From Ireland to Dunedin

Wednesday-Page Two

Monsignor COLEMAN died suddenly at Bishop's Place at 2 o'clock this morning.

He arrived in town to take part in the council of Diocese this week. Yesterday he went to the Exhibition in the evening, and though it was noticed that he was a little duller than usual, there was nothing to indicate that he was seriously ill.

On his return to the Bishop's residence it was observed he was ailing, and on the advice of Father LYNCH he decided to retire to bed.

He appeared to be sleeping quietly for some time, but when visited at 10'o'clock it was deemed advisable to send for Dr FERGUSON, who found Monsignor COLEMAN suffering from a fit of apoplexy, and though the doctor did everything possible he deemed the case hopeless, and Father WALSH administered the last rites of the church.

Deceased, who was 60 years of age, and a native of County WATERFORD, was ordained priest of the parish of CLOYNE, County CORK, where he spent fifteen years, and then left for DUNEDIN with Bishop MORAN, arrived here in 1870.

Receiving the appointment of Vicar-General of the Diocese some years later, he paid a visit to the Home Country, and on his return was given the charge of the OAMARU district.

In 1882 he was appointed Archdeacon, and the Pope created a few months ago a domestic prelate with the appellation of "Monsignor."

An enquiry was held yesterday before Mr BOOTH, R.M., and Captain CHRISP, nautical assessor, into the stranding of the barque PERU on a reef off SELLOTT'S island whilst on her voyage from Townsville to GISBORNE

***NB by Elaine-Name originally reported as TYLER?

The mate named Alexander TYTLER (since drowned) was in charge.
Our cablegrams this morning announce the demise of two peers of the realm, both falling victims to influenza.

The first, Lord NAPIER of Magdala, was born in Ceylon in 1810, and was consequently in his 80th year. He was chiefly known for his distinguished military services in INDIA and in Abyssinia.

During the Mutiny of 1857 (says Men of the Times) he served in India in the capacity of Chief Engineer with the army of Sir Colin CAMPBELL, and the part he played in the suppression of the rebellion greatly enhanced his previous high reputation.

It was he who at the siege of LUCKNOW planned that bridging of the GOOMTEE river which exercised so great an influence on the operations for the overthrow of the enemy, and he was afterwards appointed to the command of the force employed to destroy the rebels who were reunited under Tantia TOPEE, but on Sir Hugh ROSE claiming the execution of this task, Lord NAPIER-then Colonel Sir Robert NAPIER-acted as second in command.

In 1867, being then raised to the rank of Lieut. General, he received the appointment to command the expedition intended to rescue the Abyssinian captives, and achieved a brilliant success.

King THEODORE was thoroughly defeated in an engagement on the heights of ISLAMGIE on April 10th, 1868, and soon afterwards released his prisoners.

Sir Robert NAPIER followed up this victory by the storming of Magdala, when Theodore, in despair, committed suicide.

On Sir Robert's return to England he received the thanks of Parliament; the sum of £2000 per annum was settled on him and his next heir; he was elevated to the peerage by the title of Baron NAPIER of Magdala; was presented with the freedom of the city of London with a sword of the value of 200 guineas; received other marks of honor.

In January 1870 he was appointed to succeed Sir William MANSFIELD as Commander-in-Chief of the forces in INDIA with the local rank of General. He was appointed Governor of Gibraltar in June 1876, and in February 1878 was selected by the Government to be the Commander-in-Chief of the English expeditionary force in the event of Great Britain declaring war against RUSSIA, a contingency that was averted by the Treaty of BERLIN.

In 1886 he was appointed High Constable of the Fewer.

The other peer who has succumbed to influenza, Earl CAIRNS, will be remembered in connection with the breach of promise action brought against him by Miss FORTESCUE when he was Viscount Germoyle.

He was born in 1861, and succeeded to the Earldom of CAIRNS in 1885?

***NB by Elaine-Name originally reported as TYLER?

The mate named Alexander TYTLER (since drowned) was in charge.
Our cablegrams this morning announce the demise of two peers of the realm, both falling victims to influenza.

The first, Lord NAPIER of Magdala, was born in Ceylon in 1810, and was consequently in his 80th year. He was chiefly known for his distinguished military services in INDIA and in Abyssinia.

During the Mutiny of 1857 (says Men of the Times) he served in India in the capacity of Chief Engineer with the army of Sir Colin CAMPBELL, and the part he played in the suppression of the rebellion greatly enhanced his previous high reputation.

It was he who at the siege of LUCKNOW planned that bridging of the GOOMTEE river which exercised so great an influence on the operations for the overthrow of the enemy, and he was afterwards appointed to the command of the force employed to destroy the rebels who were reunited under Tantia TOPEE, but on Sir Hugh ROSE claiming the execution of this task, Lord NAPIER-then Colonel Sir Robert NAPIER-acted as second in command.

In 1867, being then raised to the rank of Lieut. General, he received the appointment to command the expedition intended to rescue the Abyssinian captives, and achieved a brilliant success.

King THEODORE was thoroughly defeated in an engagement on the heights of ISLAMGIE on April 10th, 1868, and soon afterwards released his prisoners.

Sir Robert NAPIER followed up this victory by the storming of Magdala, when Theodore, in despair, committed suicide.

On Sir Robert's return to England he received the thanks of Parliament; the sum of £2000 per annum was settled on him and his next heir; he was elevated to the peerage by the title of Baron NAPIER of Magdala; was presented with the freedom of the city of London with a sword of the value of 200 guineas; received other marks of honor.

In January 1870 he was appointed to succeed Sir William MANSFIELD as Commander-in-Chief of the forces in INDIA with the local rank of General. He was appointed Governor of Gibraltar in June 1876, and in February 1878 was selected by the Government to be the Commander-in-Chief of the English expeditionary force in the event of Great Britain declaring war against RUSSIA, a contingency that was averted by the Treaty of BERLIN.

In 1886 he was appointed High Constable of the Fewer.

The other peer who has succumbed to influenza, Earl CAIRNS, will be remembered in connection with the breach of promise action brought against him by Miss FORTESCUE when he was Viscount Germoyle.

He was born in 1861, and succeeded to the Earldom of CAIRNS in 1885?
