More Stacks Burnt.- Five stacks of barley belonging to Messrs Robert; Allan and Samuel Barnes were burnt at the Awatere early yesterday morning, on the opposite side of the river to where the Hon. Mr. Clifford's stacks were recently burnt down. Every precaution was taken against fire by Messrs Allen and Barnes. The stacks were placed in an isolated position, and the ground was ploughed round them for some distance.

Ellen Barnes née Gill

We have also to record the demise of Mrs. Ellen Barnes, wife of Samuel Barnes of the Renwick Old Road, at the age of 50. She was one of the earliest Nelson settlers, being about five years old when she came out. Mrs. Barnes, who had been in the Wairau nearly 25 years, leaves five sons and four daughters, mostly grown up, and was connected by marriage with numerous families in the district.
