THE MAORI INSURRECTION. We, Sydney Empire have received from Auckland,   by the mail steamer, further official papers, relative to the causes of quarrel between the European and     Native races in New Zealand. The documents   which have now reached us are by far the most in teresting and important that have yet been pub- lished and tend to throw much light on the causes of the unfortunate state of affairs now existing in   that colony. The most interesting portion of the   communication is contained in the evidence given before the New Zealand House of Assembly, in com- mittee, by the Venerable Archdeacon Hadfield, on 30th August, ultimo. The Venerable Archdeacon Hadfield was intro- duced within the bar, and permitted to seat him-   self.

POLICE OFFICE.   ---*--- THURSDAY.-October 4th, 1860. Before W. Tarleton, Esq., P.M. One drunkard and one brawler were each fined in the usual penalty. Mary Howard was fined 40s. for indecent behaviour in the public street. Before W. Tarleton and H. B. Tonkin Esqs. Stealing a Pig.-Henry Smith was charged with stealing a pig, the property of Captain Napper, of the schooner Circassian. The prisoner pleaded guilty. Mr. Moriarty said he had advised the prisoner to plead guilty, as he was informed the pig had been taken away in a joke ; the prisoner, he understood, bore a good character. In answer to Mr. Tarleton, Captain Napper said the man's character was good, but the reason he had brought him up was that he had missed many articles from the ship, but whether the prisoner had taken them or not he could not say. The prisoner was sentenced to three months im- prisonment. Unsound Mind.-Charles Atkins of Glenorchy, on the information of Mr. Seager, Superintendent of the Gener...

FEMALE EMPLOYMENT. [FROM THE GLOBE.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 October 1860

FEMALE! EMPLOYMENT. [fbom the globe.] The Civil Senke Gazette lately had an an- nouncement which ought to attract the attention of the " women's rights" advocates :- " Post« Office.-Miss Catherine Downes Rogers has been appointed to a clerkship at Torquay, and passed her examination." The beale of this startling event is, to be sure, merely a provincial post office ; and there liavo been " post-mistresses" era now ; but the words " clerkship" and " passed her examination" are plain. A young lady has become a member of the Civil Service, having passed the terrible ordeal of tli3 Civil Service Commissioners, and liasbecome entitled to all those privileges of promotion, pension, etc., which [shall we say ?)her " fellow" clerks so fully enjoy. We heartily congratulate the new civil servant on her appointment ; but will it be drawn into a precedent Î We have no malicious intent in putting the query. We ore aware that our gentlemen civil servants have but few amusements during office hour...

COUNTRY DISTRICTS. BOTHWELL. (FJtOSt A COHEESPONDENT.) On Tuesday evening, the 2nd October instant, a Lecture was delivered at (ho School-house, by the Inspector, Mr. Stutzer ; and although but a short intimation was given of that gentle- man's intention to do so, (indeed, not sufficient to moko all the outlying Bettlers acquainted with it,) yet, notwithstanding, the room was ' cronded. And hero I may remark that all the | lectures delivered at this place aro well attended, which spenks well for the district, seeing that winter nights, and spring ones, too, aro " drear and cold,'' and that many have to come from a considerable distance along roads not at all to be admired, although the " fair" travellers are cortes, this desire evinced for the acquisition of knowledge is not emblematical of the times when the people did Rest tho strength of their cause on tho force of their might, And the sword was supremo arbitrator of right.

THE UNION BANK FRAUDS. (ECONOMIST.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 October 1860

THE UNION BANK FRAUDS. (FCONONibr.) Without oral explanations and without knowing tho particular systom of bookeeping adopted by the Union Bank it is not possible to follow out the praolioal consoquonces of the different operations. But we can perceive that there were at least two distinct operations. Pullingcr abstracted cash which he said he would pay to the Bank of England; ho also directed certain parties-certain customers of the bank to bo credited with cash which had never existed. He took away some part of the money which really had boen there ; _ and, ho alleged that money had been thoro which, in truth, had not boen bo. For tho purposes of ordinary book- keeping theso are different operations. It would also seem that all the cash which was abstracted by Pullinger was not ab- stracted in precisely the same manner. The two last items mentioned by the directors, though identical in ultimata pocuninry result, wore, for tho purpose of the day's business, very different oporaüons...

They bavo neither great wealth nor many want", A slight exertion can always procure a competence. Climate aud other things considered, they live altogether an easier life than the mass of their fellow-subjects in Eng> land. They know no stimulus of competition, and recognize no need of manual or mechanical excellence. They are aware that such work as they choose to perform will always command the price at which they appraise it and that the' labour of a fow weeks can always earn a com- mensurate period of repose. They are not un instructed or uninformed. I have found negro Creoles whoso bookish acquirements might put to shame those of the mechanics and day labourers of London or Liverpool.
