The Evening Star. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 2 November 1870
The Evening Star. WEDNESDA Y, NOVEMBER 2, 1870. Having so warmly urged that a requisition should be prepared asking Mr. Vogel to b come a candidate tot the representation of a city electorate, we feel special satisfaction at the triumphant success which last night attended bis first meeting with his constituents. The crowded state of the hall, the character and position of those assembled, and the interest manifested in. the proeet dings, combined to make the meeting an unusual one; and it was hard to resist the conviotion that the candidature of the Colonial Treasurer before a remote and rural constituencyJWould hare been a public loss. We had an impression that Auckland was pliblieispirited enough to protest against the do-nothing policy that would %r consign these magnificent islands to a continuance of the position of a fifth-rate colony, for ever whii.ing and looking dismally into the future; and we are glad to see t^at it requires but a hand to touch the proper chord to awake ...

MR. HELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 2 November 1870
MR. HELLER. On to-morrow evening the peculiar and most fascinating entertainments of this conjuror, who-e fame, has been heralded in all the Southern papers, will commence in the City ETali. In default of having ourselves witnessed his remarkable performances, we cannot do better than reproduce the following extract from a Nelson paper, being one of scores of similar notices which we have observed in our Southern files : — &quot; UELtEB. —Oowd?d houses every nighfc have testified to the extraordinary interest which this talented professor has excited amongst us. Peerless among all his compeers who have undertaken to amuse and mystify a fselson audience ; professedly somatic, yet to his audience so far above the ordinary &quot;legerdemain&quot; of the profession that he'might be thought to possess some potent diablerie, altogether ultra-corporeal, he shovrs a facility and neatness whi'h are, in a high degree, artistic.

CRUISE OF THE SOUTHERN CROSS (MISSION SCHOOLER). BISHOP PATTESON'S VISIT TO THE ISLANDS EARTHQUAKE AT SUNDAY ISLAND. The Melanesian Mission schooner Southern Cross has returned from her cruiso in the Western Pacific.

MR EASTWOOD AT THE PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 2 November 1870
MR EASTWOOD AT THE PUBLIC MEETING. To tbe Editor of the Evening Stab. Sir, —The meeting last evening did not, I consider, show Mr. Eastwood fair play. The right of expressing one's opinion is a privilege that should not be violated. It is very unfair to howl a man down desirous of expressing his views upon a particular subject. Such conduct as was shown to Mr. Eastwood last night would iiot be tolerated in any other free country. Freedom of speech and expression of opinion is the basis of a country's greatuess. I know Mr. Eastwood to be a straightforward and honest citizen. He entertains, I confess, many ideas to which I am opposed, but I consider he Has a right to express them, and to express them when he thinks fit, as long as they are not obnoxious to his fellow-citizens in general.—l am, &amp;c, , - ,^ Young Jonathan. [We agree with the spirit of our correspondent's remarks. Unfortunately the public seeiii to .have made up their minds about Mr. Eastwood; and deeming tlia...
FREE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 2 November 1870
FREE TRADE. To the Editor of the Evening Stab. gin, As many have not carefully enquired into the causes lor establishing free trade in the old country, it would not perhaps be out of place to say a few words respecting it. The old country, as far as free trade is concerned, and the benefits ifc deserves from it will riot bear contrasting * with, this country. Ours is a country with an overgrown population, requiring more things for the use and consumption of the people than its limited space will produce. This wa9 the main reason why the ports of Great Britian were'thrown op&gt;-n to other countries, and not Bimply for the sake of competition to effect a reduction in the price of articles of her. mauufac'.ure and growth. Now New Zealand is large enough to produce all she' requires for the consumption of her people, and abounds in natural resources. We do not yet want free trade here, we must be self-dependant and reliant first, and until we are compelled to fall back upon ou...
