LAWRENCE, July 12. A four-roomed cottage in Gabriel Gnlly, belonging to a working man named Martin Joyce, was burnt to the ground early this morning. The Are is supposed to have been caused by a piece of burning wood falling out of the fireplace and igniting the floor. The building and furniture were Insured for Ll2O in the Standard Office. The bulk of the furniture was saved. It is unlikely that an inquiry into the cause of the fire resalting in the destruction of the Clifton Hotel wi 1 be held, the police being satisfied that its origin was purely accidental. It is very questionable if the hotel will be rebuilt.
There ie nothing fresh to band oenoerning the new reef discovered in Long Gully, Waipori. One or two additional leases have been applied for. There was very severe frost hero this morning, which tells greatly against mining operations, blocking up the water raoes, and preventing sluicing operations.
