[PBH PRESS ASSOCIATION.] Drowned in the Harbor. Auckland, To-day. A man named Bartlett was drowned in Fitzroy Harbor, Great Barrier Island. A Lunatic’s Fate. On Thursday a lunatic, being conveyed from Mercury Bay to the Auckland Lunatic Asylum, jumped over-board and was drowned. Shabby Treatment of Volunteers. Thames, To-day. Captains Weldman and Schofield, the deputation to the Attorney-General re the pay to Volunteers, have returned, and this morning reported on parade that Government had made a final offer of one month’s pay in full, the second month half pay, and a present of the kit supplied to tin- men. The contingent have resolved to accept the terms under protest. A petition will be presented to Parliament for the balance of pay due. Mr Bryce on Native Affairs. Haweka, To-day.

This morning the Chairman of the Town Board, with a number of settlers, waited on Mr Bryce and presented him with an address congratulating him and the Government upon the native policy adopted and the success that had attended it, and expressing confidence that the Government would settle all difficulty in the immediate future. Mr Bryce said he would forward a formal reply, but in the meantime he thanked them for their address, which was more valuable because the people presenting it knew the magnitude of the native difficulty that Government had to deal with. He declared that law and order should be established on the coast and throughout the colony. Several speeches were made, in replying to which Mr .Bryce said there was one great misapprehension regarding Major Atkinson re a charge of treachery to him. He had resigned because he felt a peculiar personal responsibility. Had Major Atkinson been a Native Minister no doubt he would have taken the same action as he (Mr Bryce) did, and had Mr Bryce been a Colonial Treasurer instead of a Native Minister it was very probable he would not have felt the necessity of resignation.
