The fate of 27 head mMten lo seven New Zealand High Sohools, as set forth Id the following " bill of mortality," printed from a New Zealand paper by the " Ptll Hall G«sette," a correspondent deilrea me to publish— probably by waj of helplog High School teaoheri to spend a merry Ohrlstmas and thoroughly eojoy their holldayr:— 1.
