Building on sunday afternoon to hear judge Seth Smith said Arefia upon a some aspects of modern thought in relation to mrs. E. Button presided and briefly introduced Tho judge. Tho lecturer first referred to Tho great growth of knowledge in recent years and stated that this very growth was not without its dangers. There wag an in pulse in Mun to endeavour to go backward to the origin of All things but after going Back in thought As far As possible the mind became quite paralysed Tho mind in fact was incapable of conceiving the beginning of any particle of matter. The Zirafi verse of Tho Bible declared that a in the beginning Ood created the heaven and the Earth b at amp ome scientific men said things Nevor had a beginning. Did this latter View make the matter any simpler 1 whatever hypothesis waa accepted Ocbo mind became thoroughly paralysed in tracing Back Tho Chain of causation. Whenever he himself had tried to think Tho question out he came to the conclusion that the opening verse in genesis gave As satisfactory an explanation of the origin of things As any process of thought would Lead to. To should clearly distinguish Between will Fie fined truths and Mere theories of late years to had heard a great Deal about evolution. This theory was not altogether new hut it had now gained such a to Simeion in the mind of thinking men that it Doveri de respectful consideration the theory was that there had been a gradual development of animal and vegetable life from lower forms. It failed however to account for the origin of life itself in fact we were just As ignorant now regarding the origin of life As before. The human being to far As we knew waa the Only creature on Earth that was conscious of its own mind. Still after making sch theory of evolution judge Smith believed there was a valuable germ of truth in it. The i great outcry let a acc waa raised by theologians when the Ero Lefcion hypothesis was first brought into prominence and Tho different attitude now assumed were referred to. So far As geology was concerned the Earth s surface had As yet Only be a scratched. The True reconciliation Between geology and revelation had not hitherto been found but it did not follow therefrom that no reconciliation existed Hasty generalisation however should be rigidly avoided. There were probably Many Law surrounding us of which we were a present ignorant and there were doubtless Many other Laws in operation which in our present state we could not know. With regard to miracles it had formerly been assorted that they were impossible now it was simply held that there was not sufficient evidence Fco substantiate them i bile Miracle had ceased in ube physical world he considered that they were common enough in the moral part of Many a nature. The incarnation and the resurrection of Christ the lecturer considered the two truths upon which christianity Wae based and the evidence was quite conclusive of both Point the resurrection was a Well established Hia topical fact. After alluding to the subject of biblical criticism judge Smith concluded by suggesting that we should keep our minds open to receive new truths from any Quarter and should seek a the truth a it is in As the time was somewhat late or Button stated that any questions bearing upon the subject if left at his office would be forwarded to judge Smith and that gentleman a answers read next sunday the following recommendation of the works and Tariff committee of the Auckland Harbour Board was submitted Feo the usual meeting of the Board this afternoon pm that this committee recommends that the Bank of new zealand estate company limited by requested to state the Quantity of Frozen Moat it is proposed to guarantee Feo Export from Auckland within say 12 months hence in order that the Board May have a basis upon which to ascertain Conoe irions i any can be made a Anglo colonial notes. From our special correspondent London november 29. The topic of the Houll a a word about it. Although i have an ample budget of Anglo colonial Newt this mail i cannot forbear prefacing it with a word on the supreme topic of Che hotter i.e., the astounding manifesto wich which or Parnell has Slabbed my Gladstone in Tho Back this morning and literally taken away the breath of the Liberal party. What its a Ileal will be no one a yet seems Able to predict save of course that it completes she utter Dir org amp Nisan it of the opposition and finally sweeps away the last pretence Ofamin ability liberals and the Irish party. As a a device to save his own Bacon i should not wonder if or Parnell s treacherous move succeeded. Messes Healey of Connor Dillon and o Brien threw him Ever for Tho Sake of the Home Rule or Gladstone promised them but it they agree with their chief that the Bill the propose is non Worth having the cause for their desertion disappears. 1 have always told you the Liberal leaders disagreed re the measure of Home Rule to be Given Ireland and that the moment they returned to Power this would to conto apparent but i certainly had no notion Clad a tone s programme was to sensibly him food.

Denmark at pretend provides Over 40 per cent of the total Importe of butter into England. Some of the interested Danes who see in new zealand a Aerice competitor in the near future Are particularly careful not to divulge to a Branders their methods of Dairying. The agent general a office.

I think you have rendered a real service by the exhibition of a very curious portion of the subject a another Auckland authoress one of the Moat charming Christmas books i have come across is miss Kate my cosh Clarks a a Southern croat fairy tal�,3 illustrated liberally with Delig Haiut pictures of elves and children by the author and mrk Atkinson. A very notable foot about this Book As the a a chronicles Points out is that it is written to meet the exigent Cia amp of australian children the scenes of Christmas tales ramp and by English speaking children have As the author remarks been for the inst part naturally Laid amid Winter Snow and leafless landscape. The Yule log and holy Berty have been of cite honoured 41 but there Aro growing up under the Southern Gross generations of children with English speech and English haute to whom the Yule log a Christmas is unmeaning and Snow unknown. 44 a Southern Gross fairy tale then i written Feu Auer children As these and also for those in the older land who have any desire to know what Christmas is like among their Kin on the other aids of i get world. White socking to amuse it is intended to convey information. New zealand land full of natural wonders and Natur amp to Beauty i its Flora and its Fauna Are in every Way remarkable. In miss Clarks volume though the allusions to those wonders and beauties Aro playfully introduced they Are True to fact. The colours and habits of plants and animals Are in sober reality Juat what they Are made to appear in fairyland. Santa Claus appears to Hal and tvs the hero and heroin but to their Surprise he a Pearl As a Young Man being in the new world he is Young like it. Santa Claus shows the children Many wonderful Thiegs which Are described and illustrated in a Way adapted to captivate the juvenile mind. Bir Walter duller replies. Sir Walter Buffer s replies Fco the extravagant strictures passed upon him in Tho report of the new zealand Antimony company s committed of investigation have arrived and show that he waa most unfortunate in not being represented at the meeting at which that remarkable document was considered. Had sir Walter Beau the try himself it is morally certain that whatever else happened the motion dismissing him from the Board would never have bc6n passed. I do not Euy he answer every charge Condux vely i do not know enough about the various matters for that. But he answers them and of the surface1 at any rate spacious by enough. Sir Walter Buller language is thoroughly i robust. He Rios not pretend that he went into Tho Antimony company Foi aught but to make Money. If Tho promotion had t been a Good thing 1 or him he would t have touched the business. At the same time there was no dec rot agreement the contracts Wero open and aboveboard. With regard to Tho directors promising to forego their Iez a fair Walter a ays a a the Board simply what was due to them Tiff Money waa More . A for Tho fees being extravagant Bir Walter claims they were Normal viz., �200 a your. To never pretended sir Charley Clifford and sir John Stoke and or Gisborne were a schea men a who would attend meetings and incur heavy responsibility for nothing. Waidley and co. Respond. Sir Walter Buffer s reply 1ms solicited form or Hercy Nai lev and his colleagues a Long Recti Mintory and explanatory document of the a you re another a sort. To this sir Walter May feel it necessary metaphorically speaking to respond a Yah in and there let us Hope the dispute so for As letters Are concerned will end. The question a Fco whether sir Walter and Hill Eon Are entitled to the �15,000 promotion Money which the new Board allege they made out of the concern illegitimately i or Waidley says to be threshed out in Tho Law courts. Therefore beyond briefly storing that sir waiter Buffer denies having made anything like such a sum and claims to be fully entitled to whatever amount he and Hia Oft a Vang did pocket it can pc by right Fco discuss the question. I confess i Don t altogether understand by the Way the blocked manner in which or Naid Ley throw Ophia Banda in horror at the of promotion Money having been paid anyone. Few people i imagine know better than he does that in is not usual in the City Tor people to exert themselves promoting companies in embryo free Gratis for nothing. Sir w. Buffer s claim that the late Board had really turned the Corner of their difficulties and that the company was actually doing Well when or Waidley kicked up a rumpus and turned them out is naturally specially irritating to to Banc gentleman. He May however rest assured the shareholders will justify him in the luf cure if Hia policy can by any manner of Means extract a dividend from the mine. So far his work Baa been mainly Patching up old blunders and it must by admitted he Lias cancelled the unlucky Cookson contract and gob rid of an expansive lawsuit on fair terms. Sir Walter Buffer i Leo criticises the new boards action in arranging to Send Home 100 tons of Low Grade Ore per month for treatment in London he predicts what with shipping charges Etc., this wont pay. Or Nai lev however explains that the company have entered into an agreement with a firm who wish to Purchase this Low Grade or for purposes of their own and offer a Price he thinks will pay. Retired. 1 notwithstanding the continuous denials of Tho official that there was any truth in rumours of the retirement of or manager Stewart of the Bank of new zealand i am told that gentleman has severed his connection with the institution and gone to live in Edinburgh. It is to visit Hia aged parents who reside in Nani zealand that Little Buncombe Asarello the composer of a Baba Dill and other immortal works is on his Way Fco visit your Colony. Bank of new zealand estates company. The statutory meeting of the above concern last week was a purely formal affair. Or b. J. Jell Ray presided and said that the whole of the million and a half of debentures had been taken up and instalments to the amount of �545,000 received to Date. The assets agreed Feo be taken Over had All been vested in the company and major Nelson George had returned to the Colony to organise their business. The directors had every Faith in the future of the company. Already bids had been received for several of their estate at prices exceeding the valuation acc which they had purchased them but the directory had declined these believing they could do be Cicer Noble investors. An experienced agent will next year visit South America Australia and new zealand on behalf of a Syndicate of Noble capitalist who desire to follow the examples of the late Duke of Manchester and the late lord Carnarvon and invest in colonial land. The new lord Carnarvon is understood to be interested in this venture. If you remember he was in route to new zealand when Hie father fell seriously ill but had Only if i am not mixing things got As far As the Cape. A a greater Britain a is the name of a a Lew and inferior h Coronios and new zealand company meetings. The Drift of the report which the Alrec tors of the Tapanga Gold mining company presented to the shareholder of their third Ordinary meeting last week was that the strikes and the floods had greatly interfered with the work of Tho year but that nevertheless the Shaft had Boen sunk 22ft, and the prospects of the Enterprise nere encouraging. Captain arg Ali the manager cabled that the Workings for the month ending october 25th resulted in a profit of �500. Or Whitthorne q.c., representing Dpi Ben Ocoro holders in Tho Ojeas now zealand agricultural company to theol Teuton �227,000, is bitterly of poring the appointment of or Doven As receiver and manager on the ground that the gentleman is partner in a firm of accountants who once acted for Tho company and whose name appeared a the Bottom of the balance sheets which ought it a maintained never to have been published. Before my Justice chitty the Kotliar Day or Yuhi Thorne applied that or Whitlen might be appointed to the Post. A similar application was you remember made in August. Or Justice chitty now offered to a amp a a a common order for a receiver but this see roed palatable to neither a Ide. Ultimately the judge referred the application of receiver and manager Fco Chambers. At the Ordinary general meeting of the new zealand thames Valley land company last week or Clark q.c., Eaid be thought the property might be made to pay in time and then by Way of proving the fact announced that they had lost 4,338 sheep or 33 per cent of their entire flock Dunn the year. This was the manager a Aid the consequence of placing them on too Rich land. How such a Blunder came to be made the Board did not explain. The Aito for the town of lib yield had been very unfortunately made and owing to the bad times the Money the company had spent laying out the township erecting cottages Etc., in the Hope of attracting settlers had been lost. Unsound new zealand Harbour boards. Tho collapse of the new Plymouth Harbour Board has naturally directed attention to other new zealand corporations of to lib same sort and the bind of Security they offer. The results do not seem to strike some of the inquirers As at All Happy. The 44 financial times a in a lengthy article last wednesday declares there Are Only five new zealand Harbour boards who a Bonds can with reasonable certainty to recommended to investors. Two of these Grey Mouth and Westport Are sate simply because Che now zealand government guarantees their Bonds but Wellington Lyttelton and Auckland approved by the 44 times a in the order named have enough Trade to afford reasonable Security. The Bonds of the eight Oiler new zealand Harbour boards the a financial times con Nob recommend though it by no Means goes so far As to say they will follow the example of new Plymouth. Loan of Chis kind Are it remarks essentially Specula Tiv investments. In the cases of Wellington Lyttelton and Auckland the risk no doubt exist but does not exceed the Hazard which a prudent Man May incur. In the others the risk is at least More than covered by the increased return obtained. Personal and general. Or Chas. A Wyatt a barrister of the supreme court of new zealand has had an unpleasant experience of English domestics. At Westminster police court the other Day he prosecuted a woman lately in his employ for misappropriating certain Domestic necessities.
