His last owner, Mr FARMERY, bought him for 45 guineas a short time ago.-Does Clive boast a ranger? If so, it may interest him to know that two cows were on the railway near the Waitangi Bridge this morning, apparently waiting to be cut into beefsteaks by the next train.

WAIPAWA Correspondent writes under yesterday's date: -

Miss A BOYLE, who has been a sufferer for a long time, died on Wednesday night. The funeral took place this afternoon-

The ODDFELLOW'S Hall has been leased for three years to Messrs GUY and DRUMMOND.

Mr CHISSELL has been elected secretary of the WAIPAWA Orchestral Society, vice Mr W.H.J.BENNETT, resigned.

A man named STRACHAN was bought up on a charge of using obscene language at WAIPAWA. The charge was proved, but the case was dismissed as proved, but it appeared from the evidence that a slight alcoholic excitement rendered the accused temporarily instance, owing to some injuries which he had received about two years ago
SPIT SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT.

The annual school concert which was held in St. ANDREW'S Hall last evening in aid of the prize fund of the PORT AHURIRI district school was in every respect the most successful entertainment ever given at the Spit. The building was crammed to the doors, standing room being scarcely obtainable. The hail was decorated with a liberal display of bunting, which presented quite an attractive appearance. The various items were all contributed by the school children, and to say that they were well rendered is to accord but faint praise, as many of them were given in a wonderful manner for such youthfu1 performers, and would have been very creditable indeed for adults.

The first part of the programme consisted chiefly of glees and choruses, sung in a very tuneful manner and with great precision by the infants, who were conducted by:

Miss A. DENHOLM. Other items in this part were recitations by Misses Ella NORTHE and Jessie SUTHERLAND;

A quartet, "We'll all go a singing," by Masters COULSON, F. WILKIE, BOYD, and ROBSON;

A dialogue, excellently given by two little mites, Miss Annie BOYD and Master John MORTENSEN; and two very pretty songs, "Going to School" sweetly sung by Miss Mary BENSON, and "Won't you buy my Pretty Flowers," by Miss Amy BROWN, a tiny toddler of about four years apparently.

The older school children, under the direction of Mr WOLSTENHOLME sang several songs and choruses in wonderful style, the charming pathetic song "Little Sister" being one of the best pieces of the evening. The harmony and expression given to the song showed how carefully the children bad been instructed.

A vocal duet. "Ye Banks and Braes" by the little Misses Benson, created such a furore that an encore could not be denied, and the little maidens had to re-appear and repeat the last verse.

Among the other pleasing contributions was a quintet called "Slate," in which five little girls, with each a slate bearing one letter of a word alternately changed places until five other words had been spelt out, each word being explained in verse.

Misses M'CARTHY and PUFLETT, two pupils of Miss KRAEFT, played. a very pretty pianoforte duet in excellent style.
Miss C. CREAGH sang "Where has Lulu gone" in charming style. A Scotch reel danced by Masters PLESTED, WILKIE. DENHOLM and KROGH, was loudly applauded, the juveniles acquitting themselves very well indeed. A reading by Master M'BRIDE, and a recitation by Master TAYLOR made up the first part of the programme. In the second part the older children again sang several songs in first-rate style, the three best being "The British Grenadiers," "Sailing," and "The Belts." The last named selection, which was rendered so popular here by the FISK JUBILEE SINGERS, was wonderfully well sung, and the hall rang with the applause which followed the piece. Miss E. BENSON, who for so young a singer is the possessor of an exceedingly sweet and powerful voice, sang "The Golden Shore" in a style which much older vocalists would find it difficult to surpass.

This song, and the duet which the same little one sang with her sister in the first part, were the gems of the concert Miss M.TILLEY sang "Watching for Pa" very nicely. A reading, "Curfew shall not ring to-night" was given with excellent expression and clearness by Miss E. M'CARTHY. Recitations by Masters C. PLESTED and J. TONKIN were given with much vivacity and spirit. A Highland fling danced by Masters WILKIE and KROGH, was greatly admired. Miss REDWARD played the accompaniments.

The entertainment concluded with the first verse of the National Anthem sung by the scholars and audience. The chairman, Mr GALLOWAY, returned thanks to the headmaster and assistants who had so carefully trained the children, and thus furnished such an enjoyable entertainment. The juvenile performers were afterwards taken to the schoolroom and regaled with refreshments.

Letter to the Editor

PROTECT THE AGED.

Sir,-On many occasions I have seen accounts of an old woman named PIERREPOINT being imprisoned for obscene language &c., the use of which, from my personal knowledge, has been caused by larrikin children.

This morning another instance of the kind came under the notice of my wife who saw the poor old woman seek refuge in my side-turning from volleys of stones accompanied by hooting from a number of children of various ages living in the vicinity of OWEN and DICKENS Streets.

I think it is strange that a harmless or a sleepy man is so soon taken into custody by the police while larrikins whole indulge in stone-pelting, in the removal of things from one verandah to another in taking away door-mats and last, but not least, in annoying women and children passing along CARLYLE Street or the bakery corner, are left to do as they please.

It seems that the police either have not the power or the will to put a stop to the larrikinism that is becoming rife at street corners.

Hoping that someone will try to protect the old from senseless children,-I am, &c.,
J.C.B.

GOOD ON BOTH SIDES.

In June last the Union Steamship Company's TARAWERA lost a lifebuoy through heavy weather on the east, and it found a resting place at Cape TURNAGAIN. Constable LAWLESS reported the finding of the buoy to Inspector KIELY, who communicated with the Union company, and it was ordered to be sent on to NAPIER, where it only arrived by the KIWI a few days ago with a note.


The local Manager of the Union steamship company immediately returned the buoy as a present to the people using the landing shed, in case of accidents, and the residents of HERBERTVILLE acknowledged the gift in the following address: -

To R. PUFLETT, Esq.,
Agent of the Union S.S. Company of NEW ZEALAND, Spit.

We, the undersigned residents of HERBERTVILLE, TAUTANE, and surrounding district of Cape Turnagain, being more or less interested in the landing and shipping of goods at Cape Turnagain, hereby acknowledge and tender our sincere thanks to Mr Robert PUFLETT for his handsome and useful present of a life-buoy to be kept at the landing sheds, Cape Turnagain, in case of accidents.

Sir-Mr GANNON is a stranger to NAPIER. But his reputation has forestalled him. At the general election in 1887 he was standing for the East Coast electorate. The Poverty Bay Herald was then supported Mr Andrew GRAHAM, the alleged Conservative Candidate. During the whole of that election not one word was written in that paper about him. The votes received by Mr Gannon were just sufficient to allow Mr Graham to win the contest. Under these circumstances the following remarkable sub-leader appeared in the Poverty Bay Herald of Sept 24th, 1887: -

"Mr Gannon was neither just nor generous in his reference to this paper last night, for all the time he knew facts if stated would have surprised the audience and confounded the speaker. Some of these facts he stated……………….more

A well known personage named Thomas LONG was the cause of great excitement in Emerson-street last night. He was very drunk and, as is usual with him when in that condition, he was obstreperous and annoying. He was arrested, but resisted violently, and was not even partially mastered until three constables got hold of him. Finally the drunken disturber was marched away and locked up, and he will be brought before the magistrate.

Mayoral election today resulted in a win for Mr BURNETT
Mr ELLIS-84

Majority for BURNETT, 47.

On the result being made known by Mr COLLINGE-the returning officer, three cheers were given by those present…………more-speech by Mr BYRNETT…….and…. "He had much pleasure in calling for three cheers for his opponent, but very good friend, Mr George ELLIS, who had in the past rendered good service to the borough, and who would, he hoped, serve it again."

Napier correspondent

"The onlookers were unable to render any assistance, owing to the strong current running, and therefore any attempt to rescue the unfortunate man was out of the question. The body, after being in the water for nearly half an hour, was washed ashore some distance from the scene of the accident, when every effort was made to restore life, but without avail. NEILSEN was a perfect stranger in this district, but I hear that he is known about DANEVIRKE."

We recently published a short statement narrating the death by drowning of Olaf NEILSEN near CAPE TURNAGAIN.

The following further details are from our HERBERTSVILLE correspondent: - "It appears that a party of shearers and station hands left here for the purpose of fishing, and while in the act of taking across a net to a sand bank beyond the breakers, the unfortunate man NEILSEN was swept out to sea."

Robert STERLING won't vote at this election. He was brought up at the Resident magistrate's Court yesterday charged with being drunk for the third time within 6 months and was sentenced to 14 days' hard labor

Mr George WINDUS, a well known NAPIER resident, fell from a scaffold yesterday while at work at a house in the White Road, and broke a small bone of his right ankle. He was at once taken home, where he was attended by Dr. de LISLE.

The net sum realised by the Athenaeum ball for the purchase of books for was £53 8s 6d, and the result is very creditable to the energy displayed by Mrs HINDMARSH in inaugurating and carrying out the affair.

Mr GIFFORD for his handsome gift of cordials, and Mr NAPHTALI for the use of a piano were also thanked.

It is pretty safe to congratulate Mr James CARROLL on his re-election as a member of the House of Representatives. Eleven returns have yet to be received, but unless the URIWERA vote the present position of the candidates cannot be altered. The Uriwera have hitherto refused to vote, and it is expected that they will adopt the same course this year. If not, it is possible that Wi PERE may get ahead, as the Uriwera vote would almost certainly be case in his favour

Five of those gentlemen have been returned without opposition, namely: -

Hon. T. FERGUS (minister for Public Works)
Messrs: - John BRYCE, GOLDIE, T.MACKENZIE, and EUGENE O'CONOR.

Messrs J. CARROLL and TAIPUA, who have been elected to the House for Maori constituencies, are also staunch followers of Sir Harry ATKINSON.

Mr GOLDIE, IT MAY BE REMEMBERED, DIFFERED SERIOUSLY WITH THE Government last session on the question of retrenchment.

The poll for the East Coast Maori election gave Mr J. CARROLL 1596 votes
Mr Wi PERE 1411

The former winning by a majority of 185 votes.

This will be a knock to the Poverty Bay squad engineered by Mr REES, who will sadly miss Wi PERE in connection with certain little manoeuvres that were projected.

Only a few of Te KOOTI's natives voted. Had they all voted it is probable that Wi PERE would have been returned?
Mr GANNON spoke for a short time at the Meeting at MEANEE on Saturday night. Chair was taken by Mr G.A. Mc DONALD, and the whole proceedings were over by 9 o'clock after an 8.15 0'clock start.

Mr Philip SCULLION proposed a vote of confidence, and Mr Michael DOWNING seconded it. Mr RYMER interjected a humorous remark to the effect that it ought to be no confidence, but neither he nor anybody else troubled about opposition, as the meeting did not represent MEANEE. The motion was declared carried.

There was great fun at MEANEE on Saturday night. Mr GANNON was to speak there and there was trouble getting a meeting together, people from TARADALE and NAPIER having to be impressed. The majority of those present did not know the Poverty Man by sight, and did not know such a well-known resident of the MEANEE districts as Mr W. F.HIGHLY.

When he entered the hall the outsiders posing as MEANEE people thought he was the candidate and made themselves ridiculous by "Cheers for GANNON."
The late Sydney TAIWHANGA, whose death was recorded in our Saturday's issue, was about 50 years of age at the time of his decease. He was born at KAIKOHE, Bay of Islands, and was educated at AUCKLAND, and while residing there taught carpentering. He displayed quite an aptitude for the trade, and in after years he erected several substantial bridges in various part of Auckland district.

Later on he started a school in the Bay of Islands for the purpose of imparting knowledge of the English language to the native children, and while he was so engaged he married a widow with several children, who had just arrived from Home.

The Union was not a happy one, and after several years the couple parted. Two children (boys) were born to them, and both the sons, together with another son, the issue of a former marriage with a Maori woman, who died when he was a young man, are at present in Wellington.

TAIWHANGA also learnt the art of surveying, and we are informed that the PUHUPUHI forest was surveyed by him under contract with the government.

A number of years ago he visited ENGLAND, and presented a petition to the Queen from the Maori relative to land matters.

A grower over at Northcote found many of his plants greatly injured, and on telling Mr BARBER that gentleman brought over a plant to Mr CHEESEMAN at the Auckland Museum.

After examination Mr CHEESEMAN found that the insect was aleurodes vaporarium,
an insect which has been very injurious to tomatoes in the United States, but which has not hitherto been noticed here.

The insect bores in the leaf, and then turns into a small white fly. It must be dealt with by kerosene solution, applied with a syringe.

They state that the proposal was received with warm appreciation at a meeting of the past and present students of Newham College. It was felt that the degrees would be most useful to those women students who might obtain educational posts in New Zealand and other colonies.

DISTRICT SCHOOL CONCERT

The annual concert in aid of the prize fund of the district school was held in the Gaiety theatre last evening. The first part of the programme consisted of action songs and callisthenic exercises performed by the infant pupils, under the direction of Miss ROBOTTOM. The tiny juveniles quite entered into the spirit of the pieces sung, and went through the various actions with great precision and in a very graceful manner.

A number of female pupils then went through a course of physical drill in good style. The male pupils of Sergeant-Major HUDDELSTONE'S class reflected great credit on their instructor by the excellent manner on which they performed the drill allotted them. The perfect time and accuracy of the movements would have been extremely creditable in an adult company, while the effect was heightened by the pretty Zouave costume worn by the lads.

The patter song of Master Cecil BEAR, as the Messenger was capitally given, while Master H. BEAR very credibly filled the part of John BULL. The minor characters representing the different trades were all well taken. Mr D.A.STURROCK conducted, and Mr SORRELL'S string band performed two selections in first-class style during the evening. The concert will be repeated this evening, when there is certain to be another large attendance.

At the last meeting of the County Council £50 was voted for improvements of the Te PUTERE-MAUNGATANIWHA road. It was resolved that the WAIROA Bridge be painted with hematite. From the size of the structure this will be a big undertaking. The special order making a rate of 5 16ths of a penny in the pound in connection with the WAIKAREMOANA riding loan was confirmed. In answer to the petition from some labouring men the Council fixed the wages at 7s per day.

Yesterday morning the River broke out again through the shingle spit, and early this morning the s.s. Te KAPU succeeded in getting out

And have succeed admirably, judging from rehearsals which I have witnessed.

In matters political there is not much to chronicle. It has leaked out; however, that Mr HOWLETT'S late peregrinations were not altogether purposeless.

From Ireland to America

John Dillon's escape reminds us (says the Pall Mall Gazette) of the successful flight of his father, John Blake DILLON to America, after the abortive rebellion of '48. He succeeded in leaving Ireland and crossing the Atlantic in the disguise of a priest. On the voyage he was placed in an awkward fix by the importunities of an amorous couple who desire him to marry them on board the vessel. Other passengers added their entreaties to have the ceremony performed as a welcome relief to the monotony of the voyage, and his pseudo reverence only got out of a tight corner by pleading that the faculties granted him by his bishop would not permit him to celebrate a marriage outside his own diocese.

John MITCHEL, another of the men from '48 (whose life has been written by a brother of the present John Dillon), also escaped in the garb of a priest from TASMANIA, whither he had been transported under a sentence of 14 years.

Mitchel's long black beard and moustache had to be taken clean off to make him into a priest; and this process effected such a complete facial transformation that he actually travelled a long distance in the public coach in company with the Hon. Edward McDOWELL, the then Attorney-General of the colony, without being identified, although the two were known to each other. The Attorney-General did try to draw him into conversation; but Mitchel, like a good pious priest, manifested an indisposition for idle talk, and kept his eyes fixed upon his breviary-the divine office which every priest has to recite daily.

The annual distribution of prizes took place at the HASTINGS District School yesterday afternoon-Mr W, BEILBY in the chair. He prefaced the distribution with a brief address, in which he expressed his regret that neither Captain RUSSELL or Mr FitzROY was able to attend, the former being detained in NAPIER, and the latter being away from home.

Mr BEILBY stated that this year the work had been very satisfactory as regarded the attendance by the children and that those of them who had not missed a single day during the past year would have prizes. Regular attendance could not be too much encouraged, as also regular habits of keeping things in their places, which would be found of great advantage in after life.

He urged all to try for good attendance prizes. Another gratifying thing was that Florence GEORGE, the dux of the school, had taken the premier place in Hawke's Bay, having the highest marks. The next, May FURNISS was third on the list…………..more

Notice of creditor's meeting-Richard GREENAWAY at the Courthouse, 11.

The council of the Free Association of Employers and Workmen of Hawke's Bay met yesterday in the Chamber of Committee rooms.

Letter received from Mr William DALLAS, Otago (father of the late James Dallas, who was killed at the Spit, two or three weeks ago), thanking the association for the letter sent condoling with him on the death of his son.

The Council considered the following cases of injury to members while at work: -
G.W. DEWES, WAIPIRO-dislocated shoulder
H.BLACKWELL-crushed foot
James McKENZIE-sprained leg
Albert LAKE-cut leg
W.RAYNER-fell from a horse
E.HAYDEN-strained back

In the latter two cases it was decided to obtain fuller information before arriving at a conclusion, and votes were passed in all the other cases.
Our Waipawa correspondent writes as follows under yesterday's date: -

There was a large attendance, fully 400 persons, at the funeral of the late Colonel HERRICK this afternoon.

The procession started at 2 o'clock from the Empire Hotel for St Peter's Church, where the Archdeacon Samuel WILLIAMS read the first part of the Anglican burial service in a most impressive manner, and a hymn suited to the occasion was sung, the voices of the crowded congregation blending in exquisite harmony.

Then the procession was reformed for the old cemetery adjacent, where the first funeral rites were performed.

Several prominent local Freemasons, of which fraternity the gentleman was a member, lowered the body into the grave.

But for the shortness of the notice there would probably have been a still larger attendance; but, as it was, there was a strong contingent of Napier year, chiefly composed of the oldest and earliest friends of the deceased.

The inquest at Danevirke elicited only what you have already published in substance as to the cause of death.

It appeared that the deceased had ventured barefooted on papa rocker over which water was running; and anyone who had any experience knows that a very slight incline is under such conditions sufficient to cause a fall.

Resident Magistrate Court yesterday-before Captain PREECE R.M.,

George.F.SMITH fined 5s and costs for drunkenness, and was sentenced to seven days' hard labor for indecent exposure.

A case in which Annie BEY charged her husband Harold BEY with failing to support and provide her means of support was heard today at the R M. Court. Complainant deposed that defendant had several times left her without support and that during the last six weeks he had only given her £1. Defendant contradicted many of his wife's statements and said that when he left home it was only to look for work. After hearing counsel his Worship dismissed the case.
By last mail news was received from Miss CLOUGH, Newham College, CASSBRIDGE, to the effect that in accordance with the wish of the Board of Governors of the Napier High Schools, she had appointed a second Mistress for the Girls' High School.

Miss CLOUGH has several applicants to choose from, but Miss GROOM, the lady appointed, appeared y far to be the most suitable. Miss GROOM has first-class certificates, and has testimonials from principals of well known high schools at Home, and has studies German in Germany and French in Paris. Miss GROOM will leave England in December and so may be expected in NAPIER in time for the beginning of the school year on February 10th.

Miss CLOUGH considers that the Board may be congratulated in securing for their school a lady of scholarship, and a teacher who has been proved successful and efficient. It is to be hoped that Hawke's Bay parents will show their appreciation of the trouble taken by the Board to secure good teachers on the staff and of their schools by supporting them well during the coming year. We hear that there are fewer than usual withdrawals this year, and that several entries have already been made so that the schools may be expected to look up.

There was a fairly good attendance of members and visiting members at the half yearly meeting of Court Captain Cook, No 5810. A.D.F.

Following were duly elected and installed with the customary impressive ceremony: -

J.LONG, W. TINLINE; Treasurer-D.MOLE-(re-elected); Secretary W.J.GRUNDY (re-elected) C.BENNETT (re-elected) P.PRICE, D.CAMPBELL, W.NEWBY

The choral service at the Cathedral on Friday promises to be more than usually interesting.
Solo parts are allotted to Mrs SPACKMAN, Miss LARGE, Miss KNOWLES, Miss R.CHEGWIDDEN, and Messrs FINCH and APLIN.

It is an uncommon thing for Maoris to be called upon to answer a charge of petty larceny, but yesterday a young man named RANGI was brought up at the Resident magistrate's court charged with stealing 15s from a till. Accused admitted that he was in the shop and said that he did not go back in and did not leave and come back after the girl went around the back of the shop. He denied stealing the money, and said that he came to town the day before with seven pound in his possession.

It was considered by his Worship that there was not sufficient evidence to convict the accused, and he was accordingly discharged.

Greymouth Wednesday
James WAUGH, cook at the UNION Hotel, dropped dead this morning while opening the hotel back door.

Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday-before Captain PREECE R.M.

James THOMPSON for a third offence of drunkenness within a recent period was fined and costs, in default three days' hard labor. Defendant went to gaol.

James SMITH, similarly charged did not appear and his bail was estreated.

An inquest was held at the gaol yesterday on the body of Sarah PIERRE-POINT, a very old identity who died on the preceding evening. Captain PREECE, Coroner presided at the inquiry. Medical evidence showed that death was due to natural causes, and was really the result of old age. Deceased, who was in prison for having used abusive language to an inmate of the Charitable Aid Board cottages, was supposed to be between 80 and 90 years of age, and in case was extremely aged, as she was a middle-aged woman with a grown up family nearly two score years ago, when she first began to lead an irregular life. The jury returned a verdict of death from natural causes.
The finder of a creamy pony will be rewarded on returning the animal to Mr N.C.SHAW, POHUI.

Mr J.ROBERTS, Napier Agent of the Imperial Fire Insurance Co, has forward to this office one of the book calendars being used by the company.

Mr W.H. NEAL, the well-known photographer, has invented a new process which he has called "The Opalite," and we yesterday inspected a number of specimens of the work turned out by him by the new method. The pictures possess a breadth and richness that cannot be found in the usual style of photography, and are certain to become the rage. A peculiarity about the process is that the surface cannot be injured by water, as is the case with all methods in which gelatine provides the face. Another is that light draperies come out the best, which is an advantage the value of which will be recognised by ladies. Mr NEAL will shortly have a number of these specimens at his studio.

THE MINING ACCIDENT

The work of searching for the men buried by the collapse of the mine at HUNTLEY was continued vigorously last night, and at about half-past 5 o'clock this morning the bodies of CASBY and HARRIS were recovered. Both men were dead, and were clasped in each other's arms. The two bodies were much mutilated. The body of HARRIS, who was a son of the proprietor of the HUNTLEY Hotel, is to be interred at Huntley tomorrow, and that of CASBY will be sent by train to MAKETU to be buried alongside that of his wife.

CASBY's two children live with their grandmother at MAKETU, and the unfortunate man was looking forward to spend Christmas with them, and had had a cake made to take to them. Mr WILSON, the Government inspector of mines has arrived at Huntley from the Thames and will view the scene of the disaster. The inquest on the bodies of CASBY and HARRIS has therefore been adjourned until Friday.

Further particulars of the accident show that McLENNAN, one of seven men working in the mine, when near the face of the drive suddenly noticed a movement in the "false set" which had been erected as a temporary measure of prevention against the falling of earth. He called out to TRACEY, the chief of the shift, "JACK, COME OUT, the false set's wrong." Tracey without looking up laughingly replied, "No fear, she's as safe as a house." McLENNAN then saw the lights of TRACEY and SMITH go out, and started to run. HARRIS was baling out water, and he, CASBY, and SAMSON, being attracted by McLENNAN'S conduct, looked round, and also started to run, but the ground was so sloppy, and HARRIS and CASBY got through it slowly. The first set (the false one) had given way, and earth came down on TRACEY and SMITH, who had not moved at McLENNAN'S warning. They were both stooping when the fall came, and as it was a very heavy lot of earth the presumption is that they were killed at once. It was hoped that though one of the sets had given way the others would hold, but the caps of several of the main sets along the dip were displaced, and the sets broke quickly, each with a report like that of a gun, and the earth falling CASBY and HARRIS, who were running through the dip, were knocked down.

SAMSON, one of the other three men who escaped, was nearly caught by the falling earth. As he ran the earth followed him, and had nearly caught him when it struck the truck used by the men for "mullock" or mud. The truck struck SAMSON and almost knocked him down, but it gave him a greater impetus forward. He was knocked down breathless, but out of danger as he reached a point where the sets had not been broken. After two hour's work the rescue parties had cleared away enough of the earth to be able to hear the voices of CASBY and HARRIS, who were still alive.

CASBY could be heard, advising and encouraging HARRIS to say his prayers. Both were Catholics, and were heard to offer up the "Pater Noster" and "Ave Maria," as well as other prayers. CASBY appeared to feel the danger of his position more keenly than his companion, the latter being comparatively cheerful.

At length the remaining earth was cleared away, and when the men were seen HARRIS was sitting in a slightly crouching position under some timbers which appeared to have formed a slight arch over him. CASBY was lying a little way from him with his face downwards. Both had their lower extremities crushed down by one of the caps, or cross pieces, which had embedded them in earth. They were asked if they felt any pain, and replied that they did not. They seemed to have great hope of rescue. CASBY'S first words on being discovered were addressed to HYNDMAN, one of the rescuers. "Save me, Sam, save me. I'm all right, but try to get me out."

HYNDMAN did his best to comply with his friend's request while others were doing their best for HARRIS. A drop of brandy was given to the two sufferers, and the work of clearing
Away the earth went on. It was cleared away from the upper body of the body of each when another fall of earth took place, and struck the plucky rescuer across the back, again burying the two other men.

Consternation struck the relief party at this fresh disaster. All efforts were bent to rescue the new sufferer. His body was free, but the lower part of his back and limbs were weighted down.
When moved, the lower part of his body appeared to have no feeling. The blow had paralysed the man. As the men set themselves to get him out HYNDMAN cried "Never mind me, boys, try to get the others out. The plucky fellow's request was of course disregarded for the moment. He was soon extricated, and was carried to his home in the village. Dr KENNY was sent for, and on his arrival, after making an examination, he said he feared the case was hopeless. The man was taken to the HAMILTON Hospital, where he lies in a precarious condition.

After this further accident it was seen that the rescue party must carefully timber every inch of the way. The work progressed very slowly, and it was till 5 o'clock in the afternoon that CASBY and HARRIS were seen again and then it was clear that both were quite dead. Though they had when last seen at some little distance from one another, they were now close together, and clasped in each other's arms.

The whole of the mines in the district are considered dangerous from the sand strata found in driving for coals. The drives in coal are not themselves at all dangerous, but in driving the "sandy clay" is liable to slip, and great care has to be exercised in timbering. In the present case such care seems to have been exercised, and all through the timber is all sound and strong. The cause of the accident would appear to be that the "false or makeshift" set nearest the face, always erected before the spot is permanently timbered was not securely erected.

RICHARDSON-FRITH

At NAPIER, on December 26th

William RICHARDSON of DUNEDIN to Elizabeth Sarah Jane FRITH, of West Clive
Dunedin papers please copy.
Some of our readers will remember that two years ago this Christmas there was a fracas at New Plymouth, in a house occupied by Father CASSIDY, and in which were staying at the time Father COSTELLO and Father O'DONNELL.

A Mr and Mrs GALLAGHER from Auckland were present on a visit to Father CASSIDY, and GALLAGHER, in revenge for his wife
driving out with Father O'DONNELL against his (GALLAGHER's) wishes, struck the priest.

There was a fight in which GALLAGHER got very badly knocked about, and in which the evidence of the three priests clearly showed he was the aggressor. He was subsequently bound over in two sureties of £100 and himself in £200 to keep the peace.
For six months. This Christmas sadder news comes, for it is to be fairly inferred from a telegram we publish elsewhere the same GALLAGHER has shot his wife, and subsequently committed suicide.
