N u LN(Oa r'n ius THURSD Y, JUNE 6, 1861. TnE questioni of precedence, extended to ecclesiastictl'function'iries; has, as might have been reasonably anticipated, been productive of very: unhappy re sults. The peacee and::good. fellowship which existed among the various recog nised religious bodies of the colony have been disturbed by a 'most imprudent and ill-timed order emanating from his Grace the DUKE OF NEWCASTLE, to the effect that any Anglican bishop in the colony might claim precedence in point of social order. over the prelates of the Church of Rome, uand other. clerical dignitaries. Such an" arringement in the mother country, .where there exists a union between the Church of'Enghlind and the State, might be tolerated ; but in a colony where by. law there is no State-church, and all religious bodies are equal,; none being in at position to chuim priority over the others, suchl an unwise interference on the part of the lhome authorities must be productive only of feelings of ...

It appears that owing to mutual encroachments'on each other's rights, and mutual threats to drive one ano ther off the diggings, a feeling of hatred had been brewing between the European and Chi nese diggers for some time past, and after some triting affrays on Tuesday last the Chi nese were driven by the Europeans from one of the gulleys. Conflicting accounts are told as to what took place at a creek about 4 miles off, previous to Wednesday; but that morn ing a party of Europeans came to the 'Native Dog' with a report that about nine of their number had been drive...
