THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. (From the Wellington Independent.) Wellington, February 19.—About the middle of last Januar)', the Ngatitahu chief | Ihaia Mokomoko went to Ruatahuna to see Te Kooti, who, fearirg treachery, and warned by a dream, laid an ambush and killed and mutilated Ihaia—the latter's younger brother escaping. The Ngatitahu tribes say they will have revenge. The last accounts rendered a raid on Opotiki and adjacent districts not improbable. Steps are being taknn to guard against surprise. There is no Wanganui news beyond a doubtful rumour of a party of the enemy having been seen in the Kai-[wi dis trict. SEVEN MEN KILLED.

PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 6 March 1869

PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA. Tuesday.—In the Legislative Council the President mentioned that a difficulty bad arisen as to the precise condition in which the petition of Mr N. Levi against the return of Mr W. A. G. A'Beckett remained after the prorogation; and on the motion of Mr M'Crae, seconded by Mr Murphv, the matter was referred to the Elections and Qualifica tions Committee. On the motion of Mr Highett, the question of the expenditure in connexion with the Legislative Council was referred to a select committee. The Supply Bill was received from the Legislative Cham ber, and read a first and Becond time, and passed through committee. Some discussion arose as to the form of the preamble, which was considered as an invasion of the rights of the Council; and it was ultimately agreed that the same course should brt followed as was adopted on a previous occasion, viz., to attach a protest settintr forth the objections of the Council to the preamble. The bill was then read a third time a...

The Riberine Herald. ECHUCA, SATURDAY, MARCH 6, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 6 March 1869

ECSUCAj SATURDAY, MARCH G, 1869. Some fourteen months have now elapsed since we ielt most reluctantly compelled to Hicnnprnvp. nf the manner in which the Royal Alfred from visiting Echuca. Smarting under a keen and ill-concealed sense of having been stupidly slighted, we took somewhat bitter exception to the doings of the body whom we have named; but now that his Royal High ness the Duke of Edinburgh is again about to leave the colony without even as much as glancing at a place which might not unrea sonably be expected to prove passably interest ing to the average traveller, we fear that we may have done the Commissioners some small injustice, and, even at this distance of time, we feel no shame in endeavouring to1 make what poor amends we may. It now appears quite possible that those who were appointed to undertake the management of his Royal Highness's movements: in Victoria were not really so much to blame as their officiousness then led us to believe.

MR. DISREALI'S ORIGIN AND CARRER. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 10 March 1869

mr. disraeli's origin and career. (From the Jewish Chronicle.) There seem, indeed, to be singular mistakes as to the relation of Mr Disraeli to Judaism. Some Jews censure him as an apostate, and urge his apostacy as an instance of tergiver sation. INow the fact is that, in plain Eng lish, Mr Disraeli is neither an apostate nor a Jew. He was born of Hebrew parents. His father, Isaac Disraeli, the author, and his mother, a scion of the Basevjs, were members of Sephardim Jewish families. His grand father and grandmother, indeed, rest in the Portuguese cemetery at Mile End. Benjamin Disraeli was admitted into the communion of Israel, but his father, thinking fit to quarrel with his synagogue, failed to teach his child Judaism. One day, Rogers, the celebrated banker poet, happening to visit at Isaac Dis raeli's house at Hackney, when Benjamin was five or six years old, and regretting to find so intelligent a yomh without religious in struction, took him to Hackney Church. From this event...

THE HON. MR. M'OULLOCH'S SHEEP. The Pastoral Times seems hurt at the man ner in which the Melbourne and other jour nals have been authorised to contradict a statement to the effect that the hon James M'Culloch's sheep on the Darling had been turned adrift, and that great losses had oc curred. After having quoted the adverse paragraphs contained in the Argus and the Age, and after having inserted a denial from Mr Lawrence) one of the Chief Secretary's superintendents) our Pastoral contemporary goes on to say:—" We derived our informa tion through the medium of Mr Broughton, of Deniliquin, who recently brought over 10,000 sheep belonging to Messrs Sbanahan and Jennings. Relying on such trustworthy information, we published it as an item of Btock news. We are extremely careful in regard to all original intelligence which we send forth, but especially in regard to stock, and we have always been most careful not to alarm unnecessarily the public mind, but at times it is indispensable tha...

Stewart moved the reduction of the salary of the Engineer-in-Chief from L1500 to L1000. Mr Sutherland, in answer to Mr WilBon, said that the railway would be opened to Goulhurn in May next. In answer to Mr Burns, he said the line to Muswellbrook would most likely b3 opened about the end of April next. And in reply to remarks from Mr Piddington and Mr Lucas, he said it would be necessary to alter the time-table of the Western line; but as this alteration would have to be made to suit the extensions when opened, it would be better not to make it until the line was opened to the Lithgow Valley. The Government kept the contractor for No 5 section well supplied with materials. Mr Cummings made a lengthy spepch upon railway affairs generally, and was replied to by Mr J. fetewart, who concluded by withdrawing ■the proposed red...
