An Auckland telegram says that three volunteers vVilliam Costello (Onehunga Navals), Thomas Butler (WaitemataNavals), and William Thornton (Waitemata Navals) —were arrested and charged yesterday at the Police Court in respect to the recent volunteer misconduct—the first two with having stolen an accordion, the property of Mr Porter, landlord of the Mercer Hotel; and Thornton with the larceny of a jar of brandy from that establishment. Costello pleaded guilty. The cases were remanded until the 21st inst.

Complaints are made of the wretched manner in which members of the Permanent Artillery force stationed at Fort Takapuna are housed, and it is asserted that the barracks are unfit for human habitation. A suggestion is made that the attention of the Government should be drawn to the matter.
