Cannibalism in New Zealand.
[London Times, July 7.]
Intelligence more horrible than that which,
has just reached us has never been received,
even from New Zealand. A most atrocious
murder has been deliberately committed upon
one of the missionaries, and this, moreover,
in cold blood, with every sign of deliberation,
and with all the revolting circumstances of
canniba'ism. It has been committed, more
over, not by a rebellious tribe of savage na
tives, who ha 9 never been brought under
civilizing influences, but by the very flock of
the missionary himself, among whom be bad
resided for years, and within sight of his
own house. The unfortunate gentleman was,
at the beginning of last Marcu, returning to
bis charge, in company with another
clergyman, Mr. Grace. On his arrival,
in a small schooner, the captain quickly
discovered the disposition ot the natives,
and urged him not to trust himself
ashore. But the same blind confidence
which lured so many British officers iDto
the hands of the Sepoys prevented Mr. Volk
ner from believing that he could be in any
danger from his disciples. Before, however,
he bad time to leave the schooner ot his own
accord the natives came on board and seized
both the crew and the two missionaries.
Even then it is said Mr. Volkuer refused to
believe in the murderous intentions which
bis captors professed, and it was uot until he
was compelled to strip himself of his upper
garments, under a halter hung from a tree clusa
to his own house, that he was undeceived.
The natives hung him in savage haste, tore
open his body, distributed his entrails to the
Maori dogs, and his heart and other fragments
to the still mote brutal cannibals around,
drank his blood, and finally cut off his head,
which they have preserved, and exhibit in
churches and other places of meeting as a
token of their triumph and an emblem of their
superstition. Mr. Grace was warned that
he would suffer a similar fate after he had
served their purpose, which was to exhibit
him with Europeans remaining to other na
tive tribes, and thus excite them against us.
Happily, however, the captain of the
schooner had been released, and he contrived,
with great inginuity and courage, at a rare
moment when Mr. Grace was unguarded, to
carry him off to her Majesty’s steamer
Eclipse, which had been sent round from
Auckland upon the news of this atrocity. So
far, moreover, is this outbreak ot savagery
and cannibalism from being local or excep
tional, that nearly every missionary and set
tler for the space of about two hundred
miles along the east coast, including Bishop
Williams and his family, have been com
pelled to fly for their lives, and often to
abandon their possessions, which in many
cases, as in that of Mr. Volkner, have been
distributed among the sagages.
The Graaehopper Plague In Minnesota.
The Minnesota papers give gloomy ac
counts of the ravages of the grasshoppers in
that State. Forsaking the prairies they
have recently commenced flying and alight
ing in the timber known as the ‘"Big
Woods,” and there is every probability that
they will pass through and beyond it, and
sweep the southwestern part of the State. In
the counties of Renville, Brown. Blue Earth,
Nicollet, Le Sueur und Scott there will not
be an average of more than one-half the
crops left to harvest, and hardly be enough
vegetables left for seed. Corn has been less
Injured thus far than any other crop, and
wheat has suffered most.
In Henderson there is hardly a plant or
weed left, and the naked lots tell a sorrowful
tale of the desolation of the plague. Currant
bushes and young fruit trees and shrubbery
of every kind, have not only been stripped
of foliage, but of bark also. In some fields
of wheat they have entered they have sirar ly
cut a straight swath of several rods width
through clean to the ground, never deviating
from a direct line, and leaving the remainder
untouched. They deposit their eggs in small
sacks in the warmest and loosest earth, dur
ing August and through Autumn, and the
number laid by a single grasshopper certain
ly reaches into fifties or hundreds. As soon
as the earth warms in the Spring they hatch
out— maturing in about two months, when
they strip themselves, body and legs, of their
old skin, and come out schconer-rlgged and
full sails. The wings at first are very tender,
but forty-eight hours of exposure prepare*
them for their journey.
Collided with a Whale —The Yarmouth
Herald says that the packet schooner Forest
Oak, from Boston, when about thirty mile*
from Yarmouth, the other day, ran against
a whale with such force as to kaock the fore*
foot nearly off. The schooner v?as at the
time running at a speed of seven knots, and
the whale was not seen till a moment before
the collision. The schooner passed over the
whale, which must have been killed by the
shock, as a mass of oil immedia'ely appeared
on the surface. Whilst the repairs rendered
neoessary by the collision were being made,
after the arrival oi the vessel in port, a strip
of the akin of the whale was found attached
to the fore-foot.
For the information of Mrs. Partington,
and others unfamiliar with nautical namei,
we should state that the “fore-foot" here
spoken of belonged to the ship not to the
