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.
