NEW ZEALAND. | Via Melbourne. | Anril 22. The Tararau, which left Dunediu on the ?15th, has arrived. She brings the mails recovered from -ie South Australian, which are very little wetted. She has also on board the passengers and crew. The official investiga tion is unfinished. So far the evidence does not throw blame on anyone. The captain eays there was a strong current running inshore, and the steamer struck at half-past 10 o'clock. It was a hazy night along the horizon, and he heard no surf till the steamer struck. Major McDonnell, with friendly Arawas, has captured two pahs near Rotorau. Business at Auckland is very bad. The Auckland Insurance Oompany is to he wound up.

THE SCUTTLING OF THE SHIP SEVERN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 27 April 1867

- - [ THE SCUTTLING OF THE SHIP SEVERN. [From The Times.]   In the spring of last year a ship sailed from Newport, bound ostensibly for Shanghai. She was fortunate in her weather, and reached the tropics without encountering more than a   'bit of a puff.' Nevertheless, soon after passing the Bay of Biscay she began to leak, and the pumps had to be constantly worked. At length on the 14th of June, the water began to gain rapidly, and on the following day the ship had to be abandoned. The crew took to the boats ; and, as the weather was very favorable, they were all picked up and readied England in safety. On their arrival the usual application was made for the insu rance, which amounted to a large sum. The hull of the vessel had been insured for £9.500, the freight for £3,600, and some cases of swords and fire-arms had been specially insured for £1,500. Suspicion was raised that the ship had been wilfully scuttled, and eventually a prosecution was instituted...

POETRY. THE HEAVEN THAT LIES ABOUT US. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 May 1867

POETRY. THE HEAVEN THAT LIES ABOUT US. Not only around our infancy Doth heaven wifb all its splendors He; Daily with soals that cringe and plot We riinais climb and kn»w it not. Over our manhood bend the skies ; Againpt onr fallen and traitor lives The great winds utter prophecies ; With our faint hearts the mountain strives Its arms outstretched, the Druid wood Waits with its beuedictie ; And to our age's drowsy blood, Still shouts the inspiring sea. Earth gets its price for what earth gives ns; The beggar is tsxedtfor a corner to die in, The priest hath his fee who conies and shrives us, We bargain for the graves we lie in ; At the Devil's booth are all things sold, Each ounce of dross costs its ounce of gold ; For a cap and kelLs our lives we pay, Bubbles we earn with our whole souls tasking; ?Tis Heaven alone that is given away, -Tis only God may be had for the asking ; There is no vriee set on the Javi.*h summer, And Jane may be had by the poorest comer. And what is so rare as ...

A number of vignerons were in Gee-long on Satur day, aud, generally speaking, all expressed them selves as satisfied wiih the vintage, which has piogressed rapidly and will shortly be concluded. At Daylesford the vignerons will suffer considerably through the violence of the late gales. In those vineyards lying in the unsheltered situations the damage has been very great.

THE CRISIS. I From our Special Correspondcat.J Adelaide. Thursday. 1 n m. I have delayed this communication until the | last moment, hoping to be able to announce definitely the formation of a new Ministry. But at this present moment tin*, consummation so devoutly to be wished seems considerably ; further from our grasp than it was on this ! day week. Mr Ilouciut, with the aid of a t fortuitous combination of most incongruous i circumstances, has proved to be of greater 1 importance iu our political world than I and ; other folk had supposed to be the case. His j retirement from the Ministry as the solitary * victim to the chances of politics and law has I involved first of all the retirement of all his ; colleagues also, aud then the impossibility , of Mr Arthur Blytb. forming another team on j any terms. A week ago there seemed no * earthly reason why Mr ' Blyth should not, '. failing Mr Andrews, have secured Mr Bagot for liis Attorney-General in the Upper House, with a substitute...

CAVALRY DRILL.—NO 1. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 May 1867

CAVALRY DRILL.— NO 1. The approaching reviews which are to form, as it is anticipated, a brilliant portion of the public spectates in honor of Her Majesty's approaching1 j birthday, may lose much of the eclat which could j Dot otherwise fail of distinguishing them, if only one false movement or hut one stupid or inattentive trooper or officer should happen to mar the precision, ease, and effect, on which the success of every manoeuvre in the field is dependent. Failures to 1 which the public eye is painfully alive, failures which destroy prestige, |however honorably w in, failures which in an instant sink the corps in which (hey occur in the estimation of the colony. The cavalry of the South won at the last review the honorable approval of all classes of spectator?, i and the press distinguished that arm of the service as the ' gem' of the review.
