They say that twenty-five persons have met their deaths on the Old Man RaDge, the summit of which is 5,000 ft high. Speaking of Mr William Gunn, the last victim to the blizzards of this locality, tho ' Wyndham Farmer' says: "The body was discovered by Donald, the eldest of the deceased's, sons, and P. Riordan. They found the remains on a sidling on the top of the range. Young Donald's dogs were rolling on the show, when one of them—it had been the deceased man's pet dog—started to scratch, and on examination the men found the body in a reclining position, wrapped in a horsecover. The deceased had evidently found himself overtaken by night, and being unable to make further headway in the blizzard that was raging, had lain himself down for the night." AUCKLAND, November 18. The body of Thomas Rider, who had been missing since the 10th inst., was found in the harbor with a grindstone tied about the waist. Rider was a wharf lumper. He had been downcast for some days before his disappearance, and it is believed to be a case of suicide.
