' AUCKLAND, April 4
In the demolition of the old University Buildings, which was the House of Parliament when Auckland was the capital of the Dominion, a great quantity of documents was scattered broadcast. Unfortunately no steps were taken to preserve some of the records, such as the gaol stockade lists. Documents dated from 1855 to 1857 bear the signatures of Colonel Wynyard, John Williamson and John Logan Campbell. A coroner's voucher of 1857 is headed, "Province of New Ulster," the old name for the the North Island.
