SAVAGE OUTRAGE AT THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS.
[by telegraph.] Auckland, To-day.
A private letter from Malaga gives further particulars regarding the massacre on board the Borealis. The is’and where the outrage was committed
is only two acres in extent, though 200 natives are on it. . The na'tives live on the small island through terror of the Hill men. The crews of 'some other vessels , recovered the guns, blankets, knives, &c., from the abandoned houses. They burned the huts and destroyed the cocoa-nut trees so that the murderous tribes will be at the mercy of the Hill men. The party also destroyed a town on the mainland. One boat, with two men, is still missing.
