Not long ago a patch was struok there some few claims in extent, which paid the lucky one very fairly in deed; and only a few days sinoo a fresh discovery was made in the same looaliry, which is believed to be a continuation of the old cemetery workings. The Han-Hau preek diffginKs, which are situated abont six miles E.N.E.; from Hokitika, carry a considerable population, who ' all seem well satisfied with their returns.

DREADFUL PARIOIDE AT THE ROCKY RIVER. |~FB0M THE AH3IIDALE EXPRESS, MARCH 31.' I On Thursday, a most horrible murder wns com mitted at tho Rocky, the victim being an old man,' highly respHcted, named Donald M'Rae, - and the murderer, it is shocking to add, his son, a man of about thirty years of age, of ungovernable temper, and said by some pereons to be weak witted, though others deny it. It appears, from most reliable information, whioh we have been favored with, that tbe father and son were tunnelling in the bank of the river, along with another man, ' below Mr. Brown's paddock, on Thursday last. About noon, the old man reproved his eon for leaving too much dirt on the washing stuff. It appears that the son said nothing, bni, soon after he came behind his father, and suddenly struck his pick into the back of his head, or into where the neck joins the head. Old M'Rae fell, ' apparently dead, on receiving the blow. His un natural assailant then struck the pick furiously and frequen...

MELBOURNE ANNUAL REGATTA. The attractions whioh existed in other parts of Melbourne and suburbs, on Monday, no doubt mili tated greatly against the success of the regatta held on the old course on the Saltwater River. A verv liberal programme of races was announced, but the attendance; was very sparse ; and those who ' did visit the scene of the contests left at an early hour, the management being conducted so laggardly as to tire the patience of the most ardent admirers of boat racing. In matters of this sort, a little delay is, no doubt, unavoidable; but when there is a difference of nearly three hours in the an nounced and the real time of starting, it becomes a very serious matter. This was tho case en Monday, Indeed, in one instance, two full hours elapsed be tween the events. The racing generally was good, the struggle for the Grand Challeuge Cup and, the Maiden Pair-oared Raoe.being so severe that close and keen contests ended in bare victories.
