RESULTS OF THE NEW ZEALAND DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 28 October 1845
RESULTS OF THE NEW ZEALAND DEBATE. A fuller House has voted on Mr. Charles Butler's motion than on any question that has been submitted to the Commons this session except in tho Maynooth grant. Tho ratio of the minority to the majority is greater than it has been in any division ex- cept that on Mr. Roebuck's motion for im- proving the Income-tax. Ministers tnado Mr. Butler's motion a personal question as to Lord Stanley ; and his Lordship has es- caped by a narrower majority than did Sir James Graham on tho letter-opening ques- tion. Government has been thus hard run in spite of large concessions. Every point for which Lord Stanley has pertinaciously bat- tled during his protracted controversy with tho New Zealand Company, has been ex- pressly or virtually concealed by his col- leagues. With the exception of Captain Rous, not one speaker substantially blamed the New Zealand Company ; Sir James Graham was as encomiastic of its conduct as Mr. Ellice. The Premier and the Home Secretar...

In the House of Commons on Mondny, Mr. Roebuck drew attention to a qucstiou not only relating to him personally, but nffecting also thc privileges of thc House.

A TEETOTAL FRIGATE. THE United States frigate Cumberland is a cold water ship. Thc two last rum drink- ers left it November 3rd, and the com- mander, encouraged by the comfortable state of thc crew, and the unexpected success of the temperance measure on board, shortly after discharged the alcoholic burden which had long encumbered the holds.

JOHN HEKI THE NEW ZEALAND WARRIOR. [From the Port Phillip Herald.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 28 October 1845
JOHN HEKI THE NEW ZEALAND WARRIOR. [From the Port Phillip Herald.] We take the following: interesting extract from a letter written by Mr. James Bushy, formerly Her Majesty's Resident in New Zealand, to Mr. G. W. Hope, Under Secre- tary of State for the Colonies. The letter is dated "Strand, 17th January, 1845," and consequently was written beforo the late at- tacks of the British forces on Heki's pah. &nbsp; How prophetic is Mr, Busby's concluding remark at Heki's influence if pushed by the Government too far : " I was a witness (says Mr. B) to the baptism of John Heki anti his children about six or seven years ago, and his fast-flowing tears on that occasion showed how keenly he felt the solemnity of that sacrament, and the obligations it imposed. It is impossible for me to believe that he was at that time otherwise than a sincere anti intellig-ent con- vert; anti though I liavo since heard actions imputed to him inconsistent with thc Chris- tian profession, I have no dill...
