NEW ZEALAND
The undersigned having made up his mind to proceed so soon as possible to New Zealand in order to take part in the conflict there raging between the British Government and the Maories, hereby invites all those of sane mind and unshattered constitution, between the age of 20 and 45, who have an adventurous spirit, to volunteer to join and aid him in forming an infantry corp., to be hereafter placed at the disposal of Sir George GREY, the governor of New Zealand.
The term of service will be three years – and the reward, a farm, of infinitely greater fortility than any this State processes.
Every man, before being engaged, must undergo a medical examination.
The undersigned would expatiate upon the capabilities, the climate, and the scenery of New Zealand, - but for the very simple reason, that it would not pay him so to do, in an advertisement.
For further particulars, address –

SHOCKING ACCIDENT
The other day – date not specified – an accident of a most heart-rending nature, occurred in the Wittebergen, district Winburg. A farmer, named Gert SMIT, was riding in a cart, with his wife and five children when, from some mishap or other, the vehicle capsized. The lamentable result was that two of the children were killed – the other three were severely wounded – and the man and his wife both have a broken leg.

THIS, THAT AND OTHER
I am sorry to have to record the death of John HOUGH, Esq., aged 42. He was, no doubt, well known to many of your readers. His was a complication of disorders which terminated in a general breakup of the system. A very great number of persons attended the funeral, the Freemasons leading the procession. Your readers may remember that Mr. HOUGH’s daughter was married about six weeks ago to Lieut. DUNLOP, then of the “Gorgon” and now on the coast, as second Lieutenant of the “Ariel.”

AWFULLY SUDDEN DEATH
On Monday the widow du PLOOIJ, of Leeuekop, came into town, accompanied by her intended husband, a farmer named [LOOTS], for the purpose of being married. On arrival here, they were told by the resident minister of the Dutch Reformed Church, that they were too late, and that the ceremony must be deferred until the next day. The receipt of this intelligence naturally distressed the bride. She complained of being unwell, and immediately left for Mr. WIESIE’s farm, where she was taken dangerously ill, and, before medical assistance could be procured from town, was a corpse. Water on the chest was, in the opinion of Dr. KELLNER, the cause of death.

WINBURG
SAD ACCIDENT
Mr. Jan THEUNISSEN, an emigrant from the Cape Colony, only 14 days at Winburg, whilst following the procession accompanying His Honor the President into town, upset the cart in which he was seated on perfectly level ground, and died last Monday from the injury he sustained, and has left a widow and large family in impoverished circumstances; and what is remarkable, his companion from the old Colony, Mr GELDENHUYS dropped down dead suddenly a week or two ago at the Modder River, while getting out of his wagon.
I must do Mr. BRAND and the Winburgers the justice to state that every possible sympathy and assistance was rendered to Mr. and Mrs. THEUNISSEN, and the funeral was of a most imposing and solemn character. I trust that the Samaritan feelings of our townsmen will be further exhibited in extending their charity to the widow and the fatherless. It will be satisfactory to Mr THEUNISSEN’s connections in the Cape colony to learn that he was aware, as soon as the accident occurred, that he would die, that he was perfectly resigned to his fate, and retained all his senses to the last. His last words, distinctly uttered, were “Oh Lord Jesus, into thy hands do I resign my soul”
Both Mr. THEUNISSEN and Mr. GELDENHUYS were from the neighbourhood of Riversdale, in which district the widow and family of the latter are still residing.

CIRCUIT COURT OF COMBINED LANDDROSTS
According to the promise made by us last week we give the following brief report of the criminal cases tried both at Winburg and at this place.
Winburg
John BERKLEY, alias John DONELLY, was indicted for the crime of murder, in that upon the 11th June of last year the said prisoner stabbed one Peter CONLY in the body with a knife or other sharp instrument, of which wounded the aforementioned Peter CONLY died two days after receiving the same. The scene of this murder was at or near the farm “Avondson” Wilge River Fieldcornetsy district of Harrismith. Owing to the summons having been ‘short served’ in consequence the case was postponed to next Circuit.
Johannes Hermanus PIJPER, a printer, was charged with stealing horses from the farm “Kopieskraal” Vet River, Fieldcornetcy, district Winburg, said horses being the property of William Adriaan NIEMAND. Plead “Not guilty”; verdict ditto. Discharged. A flaw in the indictment alone saved PIJPER from picking oakum, or rather picking up stones for the repair of the streets of Winburg.
Arnoldus Abraham STUART was indicted for embezzlement. Verdict: Not Guilty
Arnoldus Abraham STUART was likewise indicted for forgery. Verdict: Not Guilty
Alexander WOOLRIDGE, alias PITT, and John Andrew ROBERTS, were charged with theft. This case was postponed on account of the short service of the summons.
Edgard WILSON, alias BROOKE, was charged with theft. Verdict: Guilty sentence, five years imprisonment.
Bloemfontein
Johannes Petrus van der MERWE, and Andries Petrus Stephanus OLIVIER, were charged with fraud, whereby they obtained goods under false pretenses from Herman JORDAN, a storekeeper of Bloemfontein. Verdict: Not Guilty
