LOWER WAIRAU.

The nomination for this district took place to-day. There were four candidates — William Robinson, Esq., Mr. George Wratt, Mr. Henry Dodson, and W. H. Eyes, Esq. The show of hands was in favour of W. Robinson, Esq., and Mr. Henry Dodson. A poll was then demanded on behalf of W. H. Eyes, Esq.

[At the close of the poll the numbers stood:— Dodson, 17; EjeSj 15; Robinson, 10; Wratt, 5: Messrs. Dodson and Eyes were therefore declared to elected.— Ed. X JEJ.]

Supposed Death by Drowning. — On Tuesday evening last, John Leary, who was in a boat with Mr. Richard Budge, on the Opawa river, on the way from the Boulder-baok to Beaverton, being the worse for drink, fell overboard. He lost his hold of an oar which Mr. Budge held out for him, and although the latter endeavoured for some time to find him, he was unable to do so. He, however, tied a coat to some flax near the spot, and on the following days (Wednesday and Thursday) men were employed dragging the river (which in the place indicated is twenty feet deep), and otherwise searching for him, but they did not succeed in finding the body, or anything to indicate his whereabouts.

Sale of Horses.— On Monday last, the sale of horses advertised was held in the paddock adjoining the Victoria Hotel, but owing to the absence of buyers nearly the whole were withdrawn.
