FORTY-FOUR YEARS AGO TO-DAY
- .. « [From the 'Evening Star,' October 27, 1870.] After an eleven days' trial, the case of Anderson v. Burke, which will now rank among the causes celebres of the Supreme Court of this Colony, terminated last evening. The jury returned into court at a quarter past eight, having been absent nearly six hours, and returned a verdict substantially in favor of the defendant. The findings of the jury in favor of the plaintiff were those on issues relating to the purchase of oats at Waikcuaiti and Dunedin. We do not suppose there will be much difficulty in finding employment by the newly-arrived immigrants by the J. N. Fleming, for, judging by the passenger list, they are of the right stamp—mechanics, farm laborers, shepherds, and domestic servants. Some few have large families, and among these is a widow with seven children under 13 years of age, whose husband died on the passage. ******* Says the 'Southland Times': Mr Macandrew, accompanied by the Provincial Treasurer, after visiting the various public institutions, went on to Riverton, and it is understood that he will proceed from there to the interior, following the direction of the Te Anau Lake. The fact that the Superintendent has set out to inspect a district of which so little is known a 6 the north-west part of the Province is not without its significance. His anxiety to extend settlement throughout the more remote parte of the Province is well known. * ****** The first of Thomson's road steamers imported into the Colony was brought out by the James Nicol Fleming, which arrived yesterday. It is consigned to Mr John L. Gillies, and will be ueed in the Tokomairiro district.
