Though the Horowhenua. Bill will not be ciroulated until. Tuesday, it is stated on good authority that it is intended to provide for a new trial : to teat the Question whether at the time, of the, .conveyance of the block ta Sir :W. Butler Mr Kemp was legally, a trustee for the Native owners. If this is decided in the affirmative it would make.the conveyance illegal, arid vitiate it. The reopening of the case is certain to be obstinately resisted by Sir W. Buller's" friends in both Houses, and cause the. washing of dirty linen. It is Relieved that the Premier- was strongly opposed to the Hon. when it was laid beiorel the-Cabinet, and this is the foundation of tlje rumors of dissension in the Cabinet, intensified (it is said) by-the polioe trouble. At present this is a matter of rumor, but nexfT week's developments will show.
