A Gazette notice further prorogues Parliament til the 6th June. The Russian government have had to admit that horrible tortues have been, committed upon political prisoners—in some cases the details were unpublishable. Mr Petrie, in returning thank® to those who had supported him at the recent election, said he was not in any way discouraged by the result of the poll, and as long as he lived and felt disposed he would again come forward and offer his services. ■ He entered exhaustively into questions’ now agitating the minds of the councillors, and counselled ratepaj'ers' to be cautious in agreeing to any loans which would mean increased rates and higher rents, and drew comparisons to. show the enormous amount of debt Invercargill is carrying. Well done, Petrie !
