COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 21 July 1860
COLONIAtL EXTIRA ICTS. -----------: MeEN-OFWAR'8-tI .EN ASIIORa. --It is rather a singular fact that whenever a fracas occurs be tween H.M.'s A.B.'s and the police, the former must be in the wrong. Sailors will often aver, after having been locked up fura ta ight, that tlchey ware dogged by police. that the police were the aggressors, and fiuilly, on a show of resis tuance, used their staves most unmercifully. However, the presiding Worships, distinguished as they have always been for acumcn and im partiality, invariably refuse to attach any credence to suclh slanderous imputations upon the integrity and veracity of " the force," and in the majority of such audacious attempts, but raise the tono of their censures and the amount of the punishmncut. Of late the seamen of HLM.S.

On1 of our greatest want(s, that of rseann of education will soon be supplied as the Noational school-house is'hearly.finished. I have been In. formed by on. of the patrone that it will be ready for opening in a couple of months.

THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 25 July 1860
TIIe N'W ZEALAND WAIL.-A gentleman who arrived by the last steamer from Nelson, and who possesses an extensive knowledge of New Zealand, states that opinion is ~rery much divided there amongst the European residents as to the conduct and military ability of Colonel Gold, whose proceedings in connection with the recent engagements between the British troops and the natives have been so freely canvassed in Sydney and Melbourne. While, on the one hand, some consider the Colonel wanting in that activity and judgment which should characterise a commander, others maintain that he is pro ceeding with due sell:e of his responsibilities, and in strict accordance with the policy of the Government. Frolit all that can be ascertained it appears the rebellious natives are in strong numbers ; that they have abundance of supplies, and that, in bush-fighting, they stand at great advantage. They are manufacturing their own gunpowder, moreover; so that the idea of cut ting off their supply of amuniti...

Horses of the proper stamp can scarcely b obtainell, and tile demandl, whih is nowv in excess of the supply, is daily increasing, so that there is every probahility of thcm oling 'up in price. Inquiries for strong, upstanding colts are very numerous, particularly for heavy draught colts, and a good lot would doubtless realise ahigh average. :Messrs. Burt and Co. report That the horse marhot was never so biadlv supplied As during the past weok ; hardly a sinigleo iseli horse to beo had. Those offered at the sales have been generally of a wretched description, not in any way sited to meet the demands.
