Old Maori Relics at Wakattpu.-^ We are informed that the workmen en, gaged in excavating for the foundation of a flour-mill, at Kingston, found some valuable relics in the shape of greenstone chisels ' and . 'tomahawks, at. a few feet below the surface. If ever a doubt existed as to whether the Maoris lived at a former time in the Lake district, tlu's .evidence we should deem is sufficient ploof of the fact. — " Diinstan Times." A Child Drowned in a. Watjgr Race. —An inquest was held at the Police Camp, Alexandra, on Friday last the 14th lilt, by H. W. Robinson, Esq,, coroner,' on the body of a child aged fifteen months, the daughter of Mr Tunnell. .It appeared from the evidence of the mother, who was painfully affected, that the child must have slipped or fell into one of the watei'races that supply the Frenchman's Beach with water, and that upon recovering the body which had; been washed a distance along the race, and eventually stopped, at a trap used to regulate the \water, life was extinct. The verdict returned, was accidental death.—" piuistaiTj Times." •"•"'
