AUCKLAND, October 16.
Mr Lewis (Under-Secretary of the Native Department), Mr E. Whitaker, and a number of police left Auckland for Rotorua to-day. They were rather solicitoue about the care of a box they had with them, containing L 9,000, to complete the purchase of the new township. It was rumored that this purchase also included Tikitere, but not Whakarewarewa, which with Waiotapu Valley is to be the subject of future negotiations. WELLINGTON, October 16.
With reference to the Wanganui telegram on the Ashforth case, Mr Jcllicoe states that it is not correct to Bay that he refused to attond at the last moment. On Monday ho received a telegram from the prosecutor saying that he had not the means to employ him (Mr Jellicoc), and that if he acted for him it must be at the Government expense. To this Mr Jcllicoe roplied; "If you do not get a satisfactory reply from the Justice Department, go before the Judge when he takes his seat in the morning and explain the course that the Crown Prosecutor took when you consulted him. Read the copy of your letter to the Minister of Justice, and ask what you are to do." To this he never received any answer. The Premier left for Taranaki this morning. He is expected back on Tuesday, when he will leave for Nelson almost immediately. Mr Skey has received some silver ore from the Maratota. The pieces are only small, but the analysis gives astonishing results. In one instance the proportion is at the rate of 750z of gold and 3,2980z of silver to the ton, and in another 550z of gold and 4,5260z of Bilver. The exact nature of the ore is being further investigated. Specimens will be sent to the Dunedin Exhibition.
