NEW ZEALAND. (Via Sydney.) News has been received from Auckland to the 1st instant, from which we take the following items:— General Chute, with eight hundred men, croised the Island to New Plymouth, and cap tured and destroyed every rebel position along the route taken by him. He met with serious resistance at the Otapawa pah, which was garrisoned by three hundred rebels, who reserved fire until the troops were close to them. They then opened fire, killing Colonel Hassard and six men of the 57th regU meat; ten also were wounded. The pah was then taken by a charge, and the rebels fled, after leaving forty of their number dead on the field. • The East Coast, which was ambushed by the rebels near Wairoa, was then attacked, and some desperate fighting ensued. The rebels were totally routed. Their loss amounted to forty one killed, besides many wounded.

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, February 3.) THE patients, in the Ipswich Hospital have greatly increased in number during the past week; in fact, there are nearly as many in the house now as before the incurables were re- moved. The greater portion of the fresh eases consist of fevers and dysentery of a dangerous character. Mr. H. 8. Hamilton, whilst exercising a young hone in harness on Thursday evening last, was thrown from the brake in East-street, in consequence of the animal shying and becoming unmanageable; beyond a few bruses no injury was sustained.

FOUNTAIN'S CAMP. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] January 30. OUR new chapel is progressing very favorably; the window-frames and doors are fitted in, and the building has reached a height of about seven and a-half feet. There is now every hope that it will be finished in February. The weather has, during the past week, been very hot, at many times the thermometer standing as high as 125 deg. in the sun; the 1 nights, also, being very close and warm. Luckily ' we are not annoyed by mosquitoes, but the lively " hoppers" are intolerable. Snakes, too, are very prevalent, I myself having had a very narrow escape the night before last ; but, luckily, whilst in the very act of of putting my foot in it, or rather on it, the gentleman with whom I was walking called out to me to step back. I immediately did so; but there not being a stick within thirty yards, the snake escaped. There have been two eases of sunstroke within the hut few days, one of the parties sur viving only a few hours; but the othe...

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 9. THE agricultural returns usually collected at the dose of the year were gathered at the end of last month. The printed forms upon which these returns are made might be considerably might considerably unproved. Some items enumerated having nearly gone out of cultivation, and others having become of so much importance as to justify their insertion. Sorghum, and imphee are now almost entirely neglected, and where there are patches culti vated it is for consumption by the stock upon the farm, and only in very small quantities. Lucerne, clover, &c, on the other hand, are becoming much more widely cultivated, and will, ere long no doubt, obviate the necessity of our being dependent upon New South Wales for fodder of this description. The weather is now very favorable for farm ing operations. Anxiety was beginning to be felt on account of the young corn brought on so rapidly by the shower of Saturday week,...
