[Pkb United Pkess Association.] AUCKLAND, October 18. A largely-attended meeting of wharf laborers and lumpers was held last evening for the purpose of considering the formation of a wharf laborers' union, but nothing definite was done. Over 100 men gave in their names as members. WELLINGTON, October 18. The triennial stock conference hold their next meeting in Melbourne on November 1. New Zealand will be represented by Mr Cowan, M.H.R. for Hokonui, and Mr Paisley, chief inspector of stock for Hawke's Bay. The Immigration Department is receiving numerous eligible nominations from all parts of the colony, but owing to the amount of money at their disposal being limited, acceptances have to be restricted to near relations of separated families, etc Mr Bayley, chief inspector for the Auckland district, reports that the infected sheep at Miranda, near the Thames, are free from scab. He is under the impression that this disease is now thoroughly eradicated in his district. When it was announced that the American Company were trying to get the exclusive right to land cables in the Sandwich Islands, tho New Zealand Govornment promptly intervened, and the British Consul at Honolulu also moved in the matter. It was urged on the British Government that such concession would effectually bar the laying of a Pacific cable from Vancouver. Nothing has yet been heard on the subject, but the authorities here are confident that this truly American dodge has been checked at the outset.

Two good flax-mills at Featherstone were burned down last evening. The loss is reckoned at L 350. There were no insurances.
