(From the Special Correspondent of the New Zealand Herald. Shortland, Nov. 29, 8 a.m. The Tauranga has just come up the creek to the landing, and the Enterprise has just left, after being wind-bound for the last day or so. 1 am informed that Hunt & Co. have got | twenty ounces to the ton out of some casing in their claim in which no gold was visible. This, however, is only hearsay, as the gale and heavy rain that we have had here for the ! past forty-eight hours rendered any out-uoor work impossible. During the gale yesterday a large building jin course of erection as a public house, for Air P. P. Fagg, was blown down. The bu Idii.g | ivas shingled but not weather-boarded, and the wind caught it and laid it in ruins. The weather has now moderated. . , The case of the men brought in for camping on a native reserve was yesterday adjourned until two o'clock to-day. i The crier is now calling a meeting for 10 o'clock this morning, at Captain Butt's, to ; take the necessary steps to get Shortland de- • clared a port of entry. | Shortland, December !. | There is a report here that Air. William! Barry (late of Barry's claim, Huranui creek), and bis party, who have been for about five weeks prospecting the country from here to

Mercury Bay, has dropped upon something good in the country he had been over. If we have gold in paving quantities here on th« Thames, and there is gold along the East Coast, as the discovery of Mr. Barry would lead us to infer, I leave yoju to calculate^ how far the gold-beariiig belt of country in the Province of Auckland may extend. The yyeather has moderated, and a number of the wind-bound small craft have got out of the creek.
