                                  “it was intended at the public meeting yesterday, that a vote of thanks
                                  should have been given to Captain Schart of the St Pauli for the handsome
                                  manner in which he offered to carry a force gratuitously to any part of the
                                  islands, if needed. By some emission the thing was overlooked, but the
                                  first opportunity should be taken to show that we entertain a proper
                                  estimate of this kindness.

1843    Oct. 21     Page 338      Police Office Nelson column “ On Tuesday, two Germans named
                                  Subritzky and Diekman, were charged by another named Posti with
                                  having endeavoured to intimidate him from following his work. The
                                  prisoners appeared to be under the belief that the prices they received
                                  were less than those paid to English immigrants. On the prisoners
                                  engaging to pay the complainant for his loss of time and promising not to
                                  offend again they were dismissed.
                                  Several Germans who had been recently in the employ of Mr Beit were
                                  charged by that gentleman with having detained some of his tools. The
                                  prisoners pleaded that there was an unsettled account between them
                                  selves and Mr Beit, and that they had detained the tools until their accounts
                                  were settled. On the tools being returned charges was withdrawn.
                                  On Thursday and Friday, the time of the Court was occupied in hearing the
                                  charge of Mr Sclanders against Mr Dunn and Mr Beit, for having taken a
                                  couple of horses belonging to him. The horses had been imported into the
                                  colony by Dr Imlay, and Mr Sclanders, had obtained possession of them
                                  from his late agent, who is at present in Sydney, for an advance of money.
                                  Mr Dunn claimed the horses, we believe, on the ground that he had a
                                  power of attorney from Dr Imlay to take possession of what property he had
                                  in the colony. After a very patient investigation it was decided that Messrs.
                                  Dunn and Beit had no right to forcibly seize the horses, and on their
                                  payment of costs the case was dismissed.

1844    Sep.        Page 107      We are happy to announce the arrival of the ship Skiold, having on board
                                  fifty Germans with their families, and six cabin passengers. The expedition
                                  is under the charge of Mr Beniot and two other gentlemen, who bought
                                  seven sections of land in this settlement before their departure. The
                                  Company effected exchanges in England with them, in order to allow of
                                  their obtaining the land in one block; and they yesterday visited their
                                  section, which are situated close to Mr Cauley’s and Mr Spooner’s farms.
                                  With four out of the seven sections we believe they expressed themselves
                                  satisfied; and we hope some arrangement may be made for exchanging
                                  the remainder for better land.
                                  It is a gratifying circumstance connected with the expedition, that all the
                                  labourers will be employed by the cabin passengers; and in order to
                                  provide for the first year, the latter wisely put on board provisions sufficient
                                  for twelve month’s consumption after arrival.

                                  Christopher Lange, a young German, was charged by Dr Monro, in
                                  whose service he had lived as shepherd, with having stolen, in March last,
                                  a sack and other articles from the cottage of Mrs Avery, of Waimea West.
                                  The evidence was such as to leave no doubt of his guilt, and the case was
                                  summarily disposed of by sentencing him to 2 months imprisonment and
                                  hard labour.
