MR MANTELL''S SCHOOL. We find that the statement in regard to Mr Walter W. Mantell, of the Taita, which we quoted in our issue of the 1st instant, from the Wairarapa Mercury, was a mistake. The gentleman referred to is establishing a grammar and boarding school, not at Greytown, but at the Hutt, as will be seen by an advertisement elsewhere, to which we would call the attention of all interested in the progress of education in the province.

Hutt Volunteer Cadet Corps.— On Saturday evening last a meeting was held at the St. James'' school room, Lower Hutt, for the purpose of forming a Volunteer Rifle Cadet Corps under the command of A. Braithwaite, Esq. At a previous meeting preliminaries had been arranged, and on the above evening some fifty or sixty boys assembled, together with several gentlemen interested in the formation of the Corps. Fifty-six members were enrolled. W. W. Mantell Esq. principal of the Clevedon House School, was appointed lieutenant, and Master Edward Allen, ensign. We gladly hail this as a step in the right direction, for the present emergency certainly teaches us that our boys must be trained to arms if the colony is to be protected in the future from the perpetration of atrocities like those of the last few months and we would humbly suggest to the ladies of the Hutt and Taita that they could show their interest in the movement by presenting the new formed corps with colors.

Wellington Independent 2 February 1871
WALTER W. MANTELL, ESQ.- Many of our friends to whom this gentleman was favorably known as Master of the Clevedon House School, Taita, and as an energetic promoter of many a plan for ther (sic) social improvement of that neighborhood, will be glad to hear that he has successfully established himself as a schoolmaster in Melbourne. The Rev. J. Barlow, of St. John''s Church, Melbourne, in a very gratifying and eulogistic letter, writes that he considers Mr Mantell the best teacher that he has met with in the Victorian colony.
