Ai.tjertinis.—We notice a paragraph in ' the N.Z. Hsrald, that this professional is attracting good bouses in Auckland, and is a favourite. This is a sudden reverse of fortune in favour of the " prestidigitator." It is to be hoped thepress and people of Auckland will always entertain as good an opinion of trim as they seem to do at present. Excursion Trips.—By an advertisement it /will be.seen that the Wanganui, s.s., will make excursion trips, during the summer months to Wellington, Nelson, and other ports. We «re happy to know that an opportunity will be-provided for those who seldom venture from home, to visit other parts of the colony, \ ab they wi!l have an insight into colonial life under a variety of. circumstances, and be able i appreciate in a fuller degree our own re-1 quiretneats. When it is proposed to convey -the wbote population (we suppose that is, intended) of Wanganii fc> Wellington on the occasion of the Duke of Edinburgh's visit, $3~ it sever strike any of our public mcd that an-effort should be made to briag not only tbeDuke^bu* tai population of other places . to WafigaouL If U»fo could be done the ads', 1 2, vantages to our town Can hardly he over estiIf it were on!/ represented that the iraHSkdrasl interesting scenes in % ybole of New' SflplpfoUind.were *& ** found in this district, \' s ' sS f&encs of tviuinjM} to Imperial and Colonial force«;3tJie.famo\ft W!eHroa J» and Cameron's celebr^'^B«^wV thc'«ai|or prince would jump &t tfa^,o,p^|t^|^|s^|4 Wanganui >sould rise ..in tj^«»^elo|;wlon||ymportance.

HiGtt GHtmdsisM, ob 3emi-Popert Exposed.—We hare received a pamphlet bearing the above title. It contains a correspondence between the Rev. C.7H. S. Nicholls and the j'Rey. Isaac Harding, occasioned by a letter written by Mr. Nicholls asking Mr. Harding to "refraia from interfering with members of the church.'' The correspondence turns upon Apostolic, succession, and the right of Dissenters to prefix the title of "reverend" to their >ame. We shall bring it more fully under review in the course of a few days. The panSphlets are on sale at Mr. Jones'—price oae shilling. Men op the 18th Rot al Irish 6s Board.—The tossing about that the Rangatira got after crossing the bar, and the length of time the troops were on boarJ, before getting away to Auckland, w.ould have tired the patience of almost any men situated... as the last detachment was; yet Captain Seymour repoits that the men behaved admirably, and there was not a grumble out of one of them. We are ploased to know the men of the 18th have ndt, under trying circumstances, forfeited the good opinion the people here have always entertained of theni. i The Thames Goldfields.—A gentleman who visited the Thames diggings, thus writes to the New Zealand Herald:— >' All that you have stated as regards the general richness of the gold-field is correct, is, in fact, understated, but, as a rule, the claims must change hands before any great result can be obtained.'' The Herald remarking upon this, thinks that ;the Thames will not go a-head until more .'capitalists take up sharesln ihe claims, as the present holders of claims are generally poor, ;and|cannot purchase machinery. \ r% E I? TH Regiment.—Yesterday, says the^ JS^p Zealand Herald, Dec; 3, the people of Auckland were rather astonished by a drum end rife band t ara ling tiirough the streets. We of course turned out to see the fun, and behcM Ssrgt, M. Dowling and Sergt. Ryan, together with a drummer and fifer, marching ia all the glory of scarlet, with drawn swords' They haltjd at the foot of Wyndham-street. whe> Sergt. Dowling (well known to the Auckland boys as their sergeant-mijor at Popatoltoi, and as the hero of the battle o: t'.ie Grinlstone) proceeded to address the admiring British public, and to inform them that it would be neither wise nor prudent for the Auckland public to trust any of' the v iliant mimbers of that illustrious corps with gods to a greater value than thirteen pence, ono duy'a pay. After going through several evohitioas with their cheese toasters, the gallant company proceeded on th.ir way to repeat the same manoeuvres at other parts of the town.
