AUCKLAND, October 1,

At the Police Court to-day a charge of Sunday trading preferred against Bergren, licensee of the City Hotel, fell through on sworn testimony that the beer was supplied to a billiard-marker who is a boarder, for himself and friend, and that no payment was made.

At a meeting of the Presbytery to-day the Rev. Mr Munro, at the request of the members, stated the facts he had learnt in his visit to places of immorality in the city. He found a very great deal of vice existing, and that it was on the increase, especially since the C.D. Act went out of force. The number of women engaged in vice had increased from seventy-five to over 400. He was surprised at the number and class of men frequenting such places, and at the amount of money spent on crime. The causes he attributed to late hours, dancing, men -of - war visits, bad literature, climate, and flesh food. He deplored the want of agencies of reform, while hundreds of agents of vice existed. Men lived on their wires’ vice, and mothers on their daughters’ shame. On the motion of the Rev. Mr Somerville a vote of thanks was carried unanimously to the Rev. Mr Munro, and a committee of the Presbytery was requested to convene a meeting of all ministers and others to consider the question. WELLINGTON, October 1.

The City Council have received nineteen offers of sites suitable for a public cemetery. The Stock Conference at Sydney in 1880 recommended that meetings should be held triennially, and the Australian Governments in pursuance, propose to hold a meeting in Melbourne in November. New Zealand will probably be represented, though the matter has not yet been formally considered by the Cabinet. It is likely that the Minister of Lands will be the delegate.
