Arrest. —Wo learn that a man named Drake, a well-known, betting map in Christchurch, has been arrested in Melbourne. ; The following extract is taken from the Ape;—An arrest has been effected by tlie detective police, which fjEom the unusual circumstances surroundihg it is worthy of more than passing notice, showing, as it does, , how, after many days the author of a sin may bo caught when least expected. One night, a., dozen years ago, a Verdant Green named Collie, was “picked up” at the then Casino and Music .Hall, but now the. Waxworks, in Bolirke 1 street', -by several “-knowing ones,” and eased of his money and : a, cheque,, which was afterwards found to havebeen cashed by a man named Sanguilly, a American, and a survivor from the''ship General Grant, which was wrecked on the Auckland Islrnds. He was arrested, and stated that he got the cheque from a man named Drake, known as a cabman, and, then a “ ped ”in thls colony. A warrant was issued for the pedestrian, but ha got off to New Zealand. Sanguilly was tried, and acquitted, his American friends standing by him firmly during his trouble. Yesterday the “ ex-ped ” and cabman, in »the guise of a very dubiously attired and fashionable, gentleman, as he was proinen'ffding'with a friend, had to submit to the indignity of Having a heavy gold chain, valuable gold and a number of sovereigns staken from hi s pockets at the City Watch-house, and of then being taken -before the; Bench and remanded .until Monday. He , was bailed out : Th is said : that an order Was' given to cancel .the, warrant out for this alleged offender j whp, is said now to bo an opulent book-maker. It may tie, mentioned that Drake has been in Melbourne many times during .the-last, two, or three years, and .only as recently as last November. The “ Wairarapa Star.”— Mr Joseph Iveas, .the: “ New Zealand rag-planter;” as lie, was christened some lime back by a . West Coast journal, has added another to the already lengthy‘list of newspapers , which have seen the light of day under, his direction. This the latest venture is

published in Mastertori, -every evening, the price Being a penny. We hqve before us a copy of the firsjb issue, which, is well put together, from a typographical point of view, The cditorial pon, We are given -tq understand, is wielded by Mr Hogg, /formerly of the Mail in this town, and lately of the South Canterbury Times, and the readers of the Star can have nothing to complain of. regarding the quantity or tlieTeidinh matterplaced before' them in the issue under notice, four columns being devoted thereto, the .sub*■jects dealt with embracing politics, local improvement advocacy, &c. The Star does not identify itself with any political party, but in fts oppuing remarks says,— “We believe, however, that the coming general feleption will prove that in no part of the British dominions is political life more active than in New Zealand, and tjiat a Liberal party will arise as'distinct from the omnium gatherum that has lately been ruling the destinies of the country as day is frpm night, or the noonday sun from a rushlight. We confidently believe that before many ihonths' have elapsed a liberal party, whose watchwords shall be ’* Justice ,’>and ‘Progress,’ will be found leading the van in politics; and when such d patrioticiprganiaation comes to the front it shall have our warmest support.
