LATEST FROM SAMOA.

[By Electric Telegraph.-—Copyright.) [Per Press Association.)

SYDNEY, June 8, The Lubeck brings news that Mr W. J. Napier, of Auckland, has, at the request of Mataafa, drafted the skeleton of a conatitu tion for Samoa.

Most of the Natives living in the vicinity of Apia are subsisting on rice, but they cannot get much of it, as it is very dear. Mr Coetlegen, the British Vice-consul, has written to the Mayor of Auckland stating that his offers of food will be very acceptable now.

The charges preferred against ViceConsul Coetlogen are that when the Germans went to attack Mataafa he showed the latter a blue light and allowed Natives to enter the consulate for protection after they had been fired at by the Germans. The Germans regard the blue light as a signal to Tamaseae r a,|or the royalist party. Consul Coetlogen replies that he only permitted wounded persons to enter the consulate.

It is believed that the U.S. warship Nipsic has gone on to Honolulu, as being safer than running the risk of encountering boisterous weather on the New Zealand coast.
