[by telegraph — press association.] Auckland, This Day. Hone Toia and 15 other Maori prisoners arrested at Waima, Hokianga, were before the Magistrate's Court yesterday, charged with conspiracy to levy war on the Queen in order by force to compel her to change her measures (the dog tax) ; also with unlawful assembly, and assault ou John Wellsford, mail-carrier. Mr. Tole, Crown Prosecutor, prosecuted, and Messrs. Earl and Cooper represented the accused. Evidence was given at length to the effect that the accused declared they would not pay dog tax, would not stop shooting pigeons, aud would have nothing to do with European laws, but would die on account of these laws. They also announced their intention of going to Raweue with their guns to fight the law. The case is not yet concluded.
