NEWS AND NOTES. The Western tire-bell rang oat a fierce alarm a little before eight o'clock on Thursday evening, but, as no fire was visible anywhere, the townsfolk were running hither and thither in am:-i:;:nent. Upon going to the Brigade-house we learned that the fire was at the Cosmopolitan Company's works. Pro ceeding to tUeCofinopoHtan claim, we fouud that the brigade were already there, and that dense masses of smoke and steam were coming up the shaft, while the brace was crowded with firemen, miners, and anxious or curious lookc-rs-on. It appears that the company has a iurnace bc-Juir, for the purpose of ventilating the mine. The furnace is placed about 50 feet lrom the piat. r. brick flue being carried alojg the drive to the shaft, and a wooden continua tion ol the flue carries the smoke and l'oul uir further up the shaft, a strong up-b'ast being thus obtaiued.

DAILY ISSUE. SATURDAY, 1ST APRIL, 186 WHETHER the chief port of this colony will be efficiently defended for a long time to come, is a subject upon which we may well have grave doubts, after a review of tlie reports and correspondence which have been recently laid before Parliament. \ear after year wo are entertained with the progress of warlike works, but also year after year we make the painlul discovery that we still remain practically without defence.

Mr Grant said that he had directed enquiries to be made upon the subject. His present impression was, that in scarcely any district were the Land Offices large enough for the purpose. Wherever they were found to be too small, a large room would bo hired and in the ca3e of no such room being available, a proper building would be erected. Mr Howard moved that the report from the select committee upon private wharfs, laid upon the table last sessioD, be taken into consideration.

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. THE OPOTIKI BUTCHERY-THE MURDER OF THE REV. C. F. VOLKNERH. (From the New Zealand Mcrald, 11th March.) It appears that on the seizure of the Eclipse, the two clergymen, Messrs Volkner and Grace, the master, and the crew, consisting of four Europeans, were taken prisoners, and placed along with a soldier who was already a prisoner in the hands of the natives. The captain (Mr Levy) they at once re leased, on account of his belonging to the Jewish religion. The other prisoners were then marched towards Mr Volkner's residence, at Opotiki, When arrived near a willow tree growing close by the house, and around which a large number of the in habitants of Opotiki were assembled, they were halted within sight of it, and Mr Volkner alone was led by a few of the party towards the tree. They pointed to a rope hanging over a branch, and told him they intended to hang him, and requested him to take off his coat. This he did, still believing the whole affair to be a practic...
