A falling tree killed a man named TECKLER, 22 years of age, yesterday.

At a meeting of the SWEATING Commission at Wellington, Mr SADLER, a gentleman of means, who first sent his son out to TARANAKI through Mr COURTENAY'S agency and then followed with his family, said that Mr Courtenay never posed in England as a Government emigration agent and that Mr Courtenay was not wrong in sending youths from the towns out here to learn to become farmers.

One lad told him that his lot in Taranaki was far better than his father's had been at a corresponding age at Home.

There are a large number of these cadets in Taranaki, and with the exception of a few fellows who won't suit themselves to the requirements of farm life all are doing well

After a hearty vote of thanks it was resolved after a motion by Mr MILNE-seconded by Mr HARRIS "That owing to the small attendance and slight interest taken in the matter of the destruction of small birds, no further steps to be taken."

The question of forming a Farmer's Union and co-operative was discussed and unanimity of opinion that it would be a huge advantage to the district and would be well supported. Mr HARPHAM and seconded by Mr HARRIS that a committee be formed: -

A man named James ADAMS was yesterday brought up at the Resident Magistrate's Court charged with being drunk and resisting the police-was fined 5s and costs for getting intoxicated and £1 and costs for resisting the civil power.

Captain PREECE issued a warrant yesterday, on the applications of Mr CRESSWELL, for the arrest of Walter C BROWN, on a charge of wife desertion. BROWN, who is well known in NAPIER, was till recently employed at Messrs BLYTHE and Co's, and still more recently at a shop in HASTINGS. He was a married man, and had one child. He made the acquaintance of a young lady whose mission in life for the time was also to serve buyers of drapery goods, and from circumstances which have come to the knowledge of Brown's wife, it is supposed that her husband and the other young lady agreed so well that they decided to elope and seek happiness in other climes. At all events, BROWN has left NAPIER, and is said to be in WELLINGTON waiting to take passage to AUSTRALIA tomorrow, but the turn affairs have taken, and the issue of a warrant for Brown's arrest, have, as will be seen from our WELLINGTON telegrams, put a stoop to the voyage.

A peculiar case was heard at the Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Christopher BEECHY, a respectable labouring man, was charged with burning rubbish in a garden without permission from the Municipal Council. After hearing evidence case was dismissed.

HBH 1890 May 7

West Clive yesterday afternoon was in considerable danger of a serious flood. The heavy sea running in the bay closed up the mouth of the Ngaruroro, and the water in the river rose till round by the English Church, the Roman Catholic church, in front of Mr RUDDICK'S hotel, and by Mr LASCELLES', was one large sheet of water.

The Waitangi creek rose till the water touched the girders of the bridge, and the swamp known as GIFFORD's" presented the appearance of a vast lake. A number of men and a couple of horse teams were set to work to scoop out a passage for the water through the shingle blocking up the river mouth, and when the train passed Farndon last night on its way to Napier there were signs of the water subsiding.
Tenders invited by Messrs BAKER and TABUTEAU for the purchase of part of the OHAUMOKO Block.

If the Napier School has not been over staffed, will not the action of the committee in allowing Miss BROWN to leave without notice cause the school to be under-staffed for several weeks? In that case is not the welfare of the children being sacrificed?

The youngest son, aged fourteen,, of Mr. W.W. Mc FARLAND, started from the home of his parents at ARECHAR to go skating on BRADY'S Pond at Grasmere Station, STATEN Island.

He was accompanied (says the DUBLIN MAIL) by his faithful dog "Bob." a magnificent St. Bernard.

As neither the boy nor dog returned home that evening the Mc FARLAND family became alarmed, and a search was made, which resulted in finding the bodies of the boy and the dog in the pond.

It is believed the dog, seeing his young master's life in danger, sprang through the opening in the ice, and sacrifices its own life while endeavouring to rescue him.

Remand was asked for till Friday, as other charges would most likely be brought against the defendants, who, he stated admitted the charge. They were also seen throwing stones at the insulators, which were afterwards found to be broken and were also seen running away from an engine, which was on Mr CLARK'S property.

It was also stated that the boys would run away if admitted to bail and Mr NUTTALL then applied to be allowed to bail his son out. He named Messrs Mc ILROY and MUNN as securities, and they were accepted.

WIRTH Bros Circus

WIRTH Bros' Grand Circus-opens here on Friday and judging from the Canterbury Times' notice of the performance, the circus is a really good one. The "Three Midgets," who are by the way, members of the WIRTH family, performed a bending act, in which they do work which would be exceedingly creditable in contortionists far their seniors. A somersault act on horseback by Mr Alfred St. LEON, is a daring piece of riding, while Mr John WIRTH's clowning is most amusing throughout.

A bare backed juggling act by Miss Marizles WIRTH hardly conveys the difficulty of this event.

Little Miss Emily WIRTH is a courageous equestrienne, and her balloon act is neatly and cleverly done.

Trick ponies by Mr Philip WIRTH have reached a high pitch of equine intelligence.

Master Herbert WIRTH's head balancing is a daring piece of work for one so young a lad, and the other two brothers; Carl and Alfred, in a double jockey act are very good.

Mr W DOUGLAS, of Te Mahanga, has just received the returns of thirty bullocks frozen by Messrs NELSON Bros, on his behalf. The bullocks averaged 750lb, and realised a fraction over £6 a head, which is slightly different to a rumor going around that Mr DOUGLAS received an average of £12.

The Woodware factory belonging to Messrs FINDLAY and Co Ltd, was discovered to be on fire about 10 p.m. tonight, by which time the flames had a good hold of the place. For nearly an hour the fire blazed furiously, illuminating brilliantly the railway station, the shipping, and the buildings in the vicinity. The gaol, which is situated immediately opposite the scene of the fire, escaped and perfect order was maintained among the prisoners. Messrs FINDLAY'S buildings, which covered half an acre, were completely destroyed with the exception of a small portion recently erected. The estimated value of the stock and machinery is £25,000. The Insurances amount only to £5,000, and the loss must be between £15,000 and £20,000.

The owners of the SHAG Point mine have given notice to the miners out on strike that they must leave their houses by the 15th instant. The houses belong to the mine owners

At 6.30 am this morning a fire broke out in a bathroom of the HIBERNIAN Hotel, a two-storied brick building in Gee Street.

That portion of the building was completely gutted, and but for the splendid municipal water supply the whole block must have gone.

The origin of the fire is unknown.

Mr A Mc INERNEY, the lessee is uninsured, and estimates his loss on the furniture at £300. The damage on the building is estimated at £250. It was insured, together with three shops under the same roof for £2500, in the National Office, but reinsured in the New Zealand, North German, and two others for £500 each.

Letter from The Woodville Examiner in reference to a letter which had been wrongly addressed not being delivered-apologies to Mr JAGO and the postal officers of the district for the accusation we have wrongly made.

Thomas HOGAN, rather too well known in Hawke's Bay, appears to have gone the way of all flesh at last. The HERALD rather prematurely reported his death when what was supposed to be his charred body was taken out of a partially burned dwelling-house at the Spit a few years ago, and once after that HOGAN was "killed" by a country contemporary.

The following from the Post seems to be a settler: -" A man named Thomas HOGAN was found dead in the yard of the Colonial Restaurant, Willis Street, at 6.40 this morning. He is a man well known to the police, and for some time past has led a vagrant sort of life, doing very little work, probably owing to his having only one arm. He was last seen alive in the Bank Hotel on Saturday, when he asked for a drink. There are no marks of violence about the body, and the supposed cause of death is suffocation. The deceased was not a boarder at the restaurant."

At the inquest last night after the telegraph office closed, Drs O'CARROLL and LEATHAM were re-examined as to the blood on MAHI'S shirt, but nothing fresh was elicited.

On the inquest being resumed this morning Marion COOPER, a pupil at the high school, deposed to seeing a young Maori in the recreation grounds about 9 o'clock on Friday morning, the 11th of April. She could not tell how he was dressed. (At this portion of the evidence Mahi KAI was brought in dressed as he was when arrested). She could not say for certain if it was the same man she saw and could not be certain what clothes he had on……….more

Florence CROZIER-a child nine years old, who was not sworn, said she saw a young Maori with a straw hat about 1 o'clock on the Friday, 11th of April.

This afternoon Otto ARNOLD deposed that the accused had no money, and had slept at the gasworks several nights. Before the murder was committed the accused had on an old pair of slippers, and was not wearing either drawers or waistcoat. The day the murder was committed the prisoner had a new pair of boots on, and had a melon, showing that he had got money somewhere.

Major BREWS stated that after an interview with the prisoner he had stated that he was given the waistcoat by his parents at Parihaka, and that he had purchased the drawers from a settler named TOOGOOD near Petama for 2s. The boots he purchased at Opunake for 15s 4d.

Francis RICHARDS, a boy about 14 years old, stated that he knew the prisoner. He had seen a person crossing Avenue road by the racecourse gate; he crossed the road and jumped over a gate on either side, and disappeared from sight. Although he was some distance away he was confident that it was not the prisoner.

During the course of a sermon preached at Stephen's Church, Ashburton, last Sunday morning, Bishop JULIUS referred to the growth of individualism.

Much of this had arisen through a mistaken desire to establish too many churches.

In little townships of about 200 inhabitants, there were sometimes as many as half a dozen Christian churches all in a row, each tinkling its own little bell, with half starves clergy men and supported by a wretched system
of "rag doll fairs, Lun fairs, bazaars" and other devices.

HBH 1890 May 28 LARSEN Lauritz

Yesterday morning Lauritz LARSEN was found lying dead on the road between NORSEWOOD and TAKAPAU.

The discovery was made by Mr C FREDRICKSEN when on the way to work. (Deceased had evidently been dead for some hours)

He was a Norwegian, and well known at Norsewood where he had lived for some years. He leaves a wife and seven children.

Deceased visited Takapau the preceding day, and it is supposed that he met his death by lying thrown from horse while riding homewards.

An inquest will be held this morning.

AS civil case in which the Bus Company was interested was heard at the Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday before Messrs E LYNDON and A C LANG.

Mr V A HARRIS, well known in NAPIER as the originator of the Skating rink in the Gaiety Theatre, has opened the vast building in the West End of LONDON known as the OLYMPIA, and lately vacated by BARNUM'S big show. The hall is now known as "The Olympian Club Elite Roller Skating Rink."

Mr A SIMMONS, also well known in NAPIER, was one of the attractions with his high stilt skating. About 250 persons are employed in the rink, 50 of whom give assistance to learners. Mr HARRIS has taken a long lease of the building, and, according to the latest knews, is rapidly coining money by his spirited venture.

Our Takapau correspondent writes as follows under yesterday's date: -
The local rifle club utilized the holiday in firing the annual match for the prize medal. The conditions were Wimbleton targets, and scoring, 200 yards, 300 yards, and 400 yard ranges.

The winner turned up in Mr R. ANGUS

Another match was also fired and the first prize, a lamp presented by Messrs H WILLIAMS and Sons, was won by Mr M Mc KAY, the second prize, a clock presented by Mr F CONROY and a net of studs presented by Messrs CORSKIE and BRITTEN, being won by Mr F WHITE.

Maoris very rarely figure in the Court in connection with charges of violent conduct, but one ROTU, who was brought up in custody yesterday morning before Messrs LYNDON and LANG J.P's, appears not built that way. He went to the Taradale races and got drunk. Then, as is not uncommon with intoxicated persons, he wanted to fight somebody. A couple of constables took a mean and sordid view of RUTU'S gallant endeavor to work up a scrimmage. He was fined and costs, the alternative being seven days' hard labor.

It is questionable whether the artist has not missed some lights which one would expect to result from a full moon getting well up from the horizon, but the watery expanse and the direct shimmer of the moonbeams are powerfully worked in.

A man who gave the name of Edward KNOWEL, and who is supposed to be a small farmer living near Kaikera, was found late last night in the tool-house in Mr H S TIFFEN's garden. He could give no account of himself, although he appeared sober, and did not know how he got into the garden. He was locked up. When searched at the police station he had several pounds in his possession, and also a number of cigars.

Ormondville Correspondent writes as follows under yesterday's date: -

Ormondville and Makotuku were in a state of mild excitement yesterday, the reason being a football match between the newly-formed local football club and a team from Waipukurau. A very good game was played and resulted in a win for the local team of 4 points to nil.

According to our telegraphic columns the "Great Liberal Party" has failed to induce Mr FISHER, of "MOSS v FISHER" notoriety, to come to NAPIER.
