NAUGHTON Intelligence has been received from Sydney on the death of an old Aucklander, in the person of Mrs Naughton, the relict of the late Mr Jas. Naughton, for many years Commissioner of Police in this city, and subsequently Resident Magistrate at Onehunga. The deceased lady had attained the age of 81. Mr Haslam, late Sergt.-Major of the Auckland Volunteers, and who served in the same regiment (the 58th) as a comrade with Mr Naughton, made the following particulars concerning the early personal history of the deceased lady:- Mrs Naughton accompanied her husband, who was then a colour-sergeant of the 58th Regiment, in the Hutt and Wanganui campaigns against the rebel Maoris in the early forties. She was at the post known as Boulcott's Farm, on the River Hutt, Wellington, when the natives attacked the post, and massacred a number of the guard in the early morning. They broke into the house in which she resided, knowing that it was used as a position by the troops. Mrs Naughton and her children were in the house at the time, but the natives did not injure them. She held up her baby before the Maoris, and called out to them, appealingly, "The picaninny! my picaninny!" When the regiment went to Wanganui she accompanied her husband, and was there when the rebels surrounded the town; she witnessed the attack, and on the engagement in July, 1847, at St John's Bush, rendered good service in tending the wounded, as she had done at the action at Boulcott's farm. She was a noble-hearted and motherly woman, in aiding and sympathising with those who needed consolation. She left Auckland for Sydney a few years ago, in order to live with her married daughter. Mrs Naughton had a large family. Her death will be regretted by those of our citizens who knew her in the early days of the history of the colony.
James Naughton was a sergeant who served in the 58th Regiment 21 years 8 months. He received a meritorious service pension of 15 per annum. He was born at Castlehard, Dallyhouse, County Cavan and was 5' 9" tall, with red hair, grey eyes, and fresh complexion, by trade a labourer, with exemplary character.

NICHOLAS Intelligence was received by telephone on Sunday night that Herbert Nicholas, a youth about 17 years of age, was a accidentally drowned at about 2 o'clock that day in the Maunga Maunga Creek near Mr Nathan's porperty, Whitford Park, some distance beyond Howick. The deceased who was son of Mr John Nicholas, farmer, proceeded with his brother, Hugh and another youth, son of Mr Spiers, to bathe. Particulars of the accident have not come to hand, but from enquiries which were made, it is supposed that he was siezed with cramp. The body was recovered and an inquest was held on Monday before Mr J. C.Wilson, J.P., who officiated as coroner. After hearing the evidence adduced the jury returned a verdict of "Accidentally drowned." A considerable gloom has been cast over the districts of Howick, Paparoa, Pakuranga and Turanga by the sad affair. The young man was of a most exemplary character, and owing to his kindly nature he possessed a wide circle of personal friends. This was exemplified by the large concourse of people that assembled at the residence of the deceased young man's parents on Tuesday afternoon in order to follow his remains to their last resting place in the Howick Episcopalian Church-yard. It is estimated that nearly 500 persons attended the burial. The procession was headed by a large number of young ladies dressed in white, most of whom bore wreaths of flowers. Those were folowed by a large number of youths, who, with the aforesaid young ladies, composed the Howick and Pakuranga Band of Hope, of which deceased was a prominent member. This society was directed by Mr J. K. Gilmour, the president. The band of the society played appropriate music as the funeral procession reached the church. The chief mourners were the deceased's father, his brother, and his uncle, Mr James Lindsay. The funeral service was most impressively conducted by the Rev Mr Fox; after the close of which the young ladies present sang very sweetly the hymn "Safe in the Arms of Jesus." We may add that Mr and Mrs Nicholas have been the recipients of the kindest sympathy from settlers residing all over the district round about. 1889.
