Ä Courier* PUBLISHED DAILY. SATCfJlDAT, MAY 21, 18G1. OUR advices by (lie Telegraph supply full particulars of the late disastrous affair between the troops and the insurgent Maoris at Tauranga. It is needless to enter here upon a recapitulation of the facts detailed in tlte New Zealand papers.

The terrible result--the defeat at the Gate Pali, with the loss of more than a hundred killed and wounded on our side, including ten distinguished officers slain-will long be remembered in the annals of New Zea- land warfare. "We shall not attempt to follow certain journals in what appears t.o us to be the unfair criticisms they havo ottered upon this event. A few months ngo, General PRATT was abused most heartil...
