A Long Petition. —The 2000 or so people who want a railway between Hokitika and Greymouth, used 100 yards of foolscap to tell their wants to Parliament. The Darrells. —The Sydney “Telegraph ” of the 3rd instant says : —The many friends of that estimable lady will learn with regret that Mrs George Darrell, who is now in Melbourne, is suffering from a severe and painful illness In consequence of this, Mr Darrell has found it necessary to withdraw from the co-lessee-ship of the Victoria Theatre. He will appear this evening for the last time, and sails on Tuesday for Melbourne. The Wairarapa. —Gold prospectors in the Wairarapa district evidently mean business. Messrs Brandon, Crosbie, and Purdy, have started on a fresh tour of investigation. They intend to examine the Bimutaka Ranges very carefully from Featherston right down to the sea for indications of auriferous ground, and the;, are very sanguine as to the result of their explorations.
