AUCKLAND, October 29,

The recent disbandment of the Waitemata and Onehunga Corps has not exercised the exemplary effect intended. A local official is now investigating charges against other naval corps of misconduct at a private luncheon to celebrate the opening of the rowing season, to which they wore invited. It is alleged that they rushed the tables, and emptied cigars, fruit, etc., into their jumpers. NEW PLYMOUTH, October 2D.

A cottage near the Manganui Railway Station was burnt down. The cause of the fire was a defective chimney. The building was insured in the South British Office for L 125, and the furniture for L 25. Mr Samuel, M.H.R., having been requested by Sir Julius Vogel to obtain for him a couple of gallons of crude petroleum from the Taranaki district for refining purposes, got two men to collect that quantity from drippings which ooze from the soil near the harbor works. Two men collected yesterday over a gallon between high and low water-mark. On removing some of the boulders, they found oil in quantities on top of the water in large holes. Some of the gullies seven or eight miles from town are full of petroleum, and no wells can be sunk in that direction.


In the Kaiapoi Factoiy case the Resident Magistrate gave judgment for the plaintiff for the amount claimed, with costs; also LI 15a in lieu of notice.
