MONEY MARKET. [SPECIALLY TELEGRAPHED.] LOXDOX, TUESDAY EVENING. Money was wanted for Stock Exchange purposes, and was nut altogether freely lent. The banks were charging the stock exchange at the rate of six per cent per annum for loans for the fortnight, but higher rates were in some cases required. For day-to-day loans the quotation WAS about 3i per cent. Without being active the discount market was firm. Three months' bills were quoted at 4 to 4A- per cent. German bills are in demand, ý otherwise Continental exchanges are favourable. On the Stock Exchange there was little or nothing doing- beyond the arrangement of the account. Owing to the more plentiful supply of money, the rates of continuation were at first not so strong as on the last oc- casion, but in some cases they hardened perceptibly. There was evidently an uneasy feeling abroad respecting the extent of the speculative movement, and it had the effect of checking fresh business and producing occasional exhibitions of weakness. So far the distribution of dividends has failed to stimulate purchases on the Stock Exchange. Consols were 1-16 lower, at 99^ to 99G for delivery, and 100 to LOOG for the account. Reduced and NOV. Three per Cents, 100 to 100. The English railway market was un- settled in the morning. Goods lines were nil offered and weak, especially Great Wes- tern and North Eastern. Fears of scarcity of money and stiff rates were the cause of heaviness. The Contangoes on these two stocks increased towards the close. London and Brighton A, on the other hand, was scarce, and commanded a backwardation of 3-16 per cent., and a sharp advance occurred in the price. The marker at the cloee was better all round.

I Chatham and North British, G Sheffield Issues, J,- Great Wes- tern fell 5 North Eastern, l The Tndian railway market continues steady, but the business doing was not extensive. Canadian railways again moved up on further purchases to close accounts for the fall. Grand Trunk rose to 1. The American railway market is stronger, but the uncertainty whether the improve- ment at New York is of a permanent char- acter causes transactions to be ejitered into with much caution. Erie rose i; New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio First Mort- gage. 2 > NVabash, 1 Preference, 1, Philadelphia and Reading fell 2 Pennsyl- vania, 4. Anion'so foreign railways there was a de- mand for Mexican, otherwise very little WAS done. Mexican rose L2 to 1^. Lombards fell 3-16. The foreign bond market opened heavily, all speculative issues giving way, the rates FT continuation ranging from 8 to 10 per cent. Later in the day easier charges ruled, namely, from about 8 to 8J, per cent.; and the market became stronger in spite of the weaker tone of the Paris BOURSE. At the last some improvement was noticed.

The home trade reports are not encouraging for manufacturers, neither are those from the great consuming markets abroad favour- able to a large business in either yarns or goods, sillce only a small turnover is reported in any direction, and chiefly at Friday's rates.
CLEVELAND IRON MARKET. MiDDI.ESBOROUGH, Tuesday. — The quarterly meeting took place to-day. There was a very cheerful feeling apparent, and prices were fully 6d per ton dearer than at last Tuesday's market. Merchants asked 43s 9d to 44 for No. 3 present de- livery. The business done was chiefly at the lower rate, though the higher figure was secured, and in certain instances 43s 3d was quoted for de- livery in March. Makers are exceedingly stiff, and ask 6.1 to 9d more than merchants. There was a fair extent of business transacted. In- quiries were active for the ensuing quarter, and great hopefulness regarding the future was apparent. The shipments of pig iron last week was about 15,400 tons. The manufactured iron trade is very firm. To-day tlte plate makers held a meeting, aid placed the official figure for ship- plates at £7 5s, business being done at this rate. Bars and angles were about £ 6 15s les8 commis- sion warrants, 44s 6d, No. 3. Messrs Connal's stocq is 176,137 tons a decrease on the week of 103 tons. Coal and coke unaltered.

JUDGE B. T. WILLIAMS AT SWANSEA. THE CONGRATULATIONS OF THE BAR. Upon the newly-created judge (Mr B. T. Wil- liams) taking his seat at the Swansea County- court, on Tue.cL1y, th8l'e was a large attendance of barristers and solicitors.—Mr Billvvyn, barris- ter, addressing his Honour, said Sir, I don't know whether you will permit me, on behalf of the members practising at this court, to make a few observations of welcome to you upon your first appearance here, but the pleasure with which I offer a welcome to you is mingled with some regret. It is true it is not a case of le roi est mort, five le roi, but, at the same time, we cannot help feeling a certain regret that Mr Falconer, your predecessor, should have retired after so long a ser- vice to hi" country, unc1crt!w circ11lnstances under which he has retired. Some, I feel sure, would judge that Mr Falconer has well earned retire- ment, but we must all regret that ho does not take with him into that well-earned retirement that which we should all have wis!J"d him to take, viz., the good health that he has enjoyed so long. If Mr Falconer were here himself 1 might say more. It now remains for me to welcome you on behalf of the bar, and to express our joy at seeing you come here, and to congratulate you upon your appointment. Further than that, 1 feel it is my duty also to congratulate ourselves, and the whole district to which you have been appointed, that one so well known and respected, and whose abilities were so well known and ap- preciated on circuit, who was a member of our own body on circuit, should have been appointed to the position you now hold. Sir, I need say no more. f _1 -t" Mr W. Hoi'inson Smith Sir, my pro- fessional brethren present, and practising in Swansea, and the still larger circle over which 1 have the honour of being president, the Associa- tion of Solicitors for Neath and Swansea, desire me to say a few words to you in congratulation on your taking your seat here. Your career has been one which has given much pleasure and satisfaction to your frielld)-and has been looked upon by everyone with considerable pleasure also. Your connection with the Principality we all know. We have had an opportunity from time to time of seeing you here in your capacity as a practitioner at the bar, and we know it must be a matter of great regret to you to leave the honour- able career had planned out for yourself in Parliament, and the equally honourable career you had marked out for yourself at the bar. Sir, it would be unseemly if I were to say more with- lout alluding to Judge Falconer, who has now retired after 30 years of as- siduous and laborious work. To all of us he has endeared himself by his strict conscien- tiousness, by his thorough unselfishness, by his entire devotion to the work of the country. To some of us he has endeared himself even more, and we regret him as an old friend, regret that he should retire from the honourable position he has held, in impaired health. It would not be un- wise, perhnps, if I said one word with regard to your own future. These courts are practically in their infancy; they are now only developing into a larger sphere of action and usefulness. Home of us who during the last 30 years havtf watched the progress of events, and have seen 'what has taken place in these courts, must have come to the con- clusion that there is in store for the judge who may preside over the court, and those who practise in it, a larger jurisdiction and a greater usefulness. We hope and pray that you may for many many years be able to preside over these courts to administer justice in your own dear native land, amongst the people with whom you have been brought up, and add one more to the many noble men who by industry, and by that undeviating conscientiousness and faithfulness which the judges of our land have always shown, add one more to the men who have built up the structure of English justice, until it has become the pride of our own nation, and the envy and admiration of all the vrorld. Permit me to welcome you most heartily, thoroughly, most cordially to this court, and to hope that you, as judge, will for many years be permitted to occupy that position over us, and that we shall equally long be able to do our duty to our clients, to you, and to the public at large. His Honour, in replying, said Mr Billvvyn, Mr Smith, and Gentlemen,—I thank you for the welcome you have given me here to-day. I assure you that I have taken the responsibility of my new position as judge of these important courts with a feeling of their import- ance. My predecessor, Mr Falconer, pre- sided over them with marked ability and zeal for 30 years, and he never spared himseif where the interests of the public were concerned. He has set before me an example of all that a judge ought to be in learning and in zeal, in kind- ness of heart, in courtesy, and in an unselfish de- votion to the interests of the public. And that example I will endeavour to follow. I have left, as Mr Smith has anticipated me in saying, my work in Parliament and at the bar, in which I took the greatest interest—with very great re- gret which I cannot well get over. But I must say that I have found consolation in the thought that my new position will bring me into intimate association with my old friends, and that while in the new position I shall still be able to concern myself in the interests of the Welsh people, in the discharge of my duties as judge I must rely, as all judges must, upon the honour of the bar, and the advocateswhoshallappearbeforeme in these courts. Having been acquainted with them for many years, and worked with them in the discharge of my professional duties, I am convinced that I can withconfidence relyupon their honour and upon their co-operation. I have the hope that with their co- operation, order and goodwill will prevail in these courts and that law, justice, and equity will be administered amongst them. For myself, acting as judge, I shall ever have in view the speedy despatch of all business. I shall object to unne- cessary adjournments, and to any effort to pro- mote unnecessary delay and I shall ask those practitioners who come before me to assist me in this respect, and to facilitate the progress of busi- ness by arguments which shall lead to the point, and which shall be capable of being supported by ready reference to the legal authorities. And I assure you, gentlemen of both branches of the profession, that most pleasant it is for me here to-day to receive from you the congratulations and the kind senti- ments which you have expressed to me—the kind expressions from you, my friends at the bar, with whom I have passed the happiest and best hours of my life, and whom 1 honour and respect, and you, the other legal practitioners of this dis- trict, whose confidence I have enjoyed for many years. You raise up, gentlemen, a monument to the simple efforts of my past life for which I shall ever be proud, and I trust, when I cease to be judge here, you will then be able to say of me that I did my duty in this place faithfully, and according to the best of my ability. The business of the court was then proceeded with.
A SCHOOL BOY ATTEMPTING TO COMMIT SUICIDE. On Monday a boy, named John Thomas Sims, 12 years, son of a labourer, named John Sims, of Church-laue, Mold-green, attempted to drown himself under somewhat singular circumstances. He attended Hoard-school somewhat irregularly, and had only passed the second stan- dard. He was. on Monday, sent with fourpence, with which to pay the school fees for this week, but his father, having small means, and being reduced by long illness and deaths in the family, owed a shilling for three previous weeks, and the boy, fearing he might be told iu the presence of the other lads to go home for the money, did not go tothcschool, but went home again after rambling about. He told his sister,agirlof i5, thathe intended to drown himself, but she never thought he would do so. He stayed in the house an hour, and then went out. Shortly after three boys saw him jump into the river, at Carr Pit, and they at once told a man named Nathan Sykes, who got the lad out a little distance down the river, where the lad was holding on to a tree. He was taken home and soon recovered. It seems that at the school the lad was only asked for his fees, as the other children were who did not bring them and who were sent home for them. There had been no application by the father for the remission of the fees.

ROYALTIES." TO THE EDITOR. Sm -1 have to thank you for allowing so much of your paper, which contained an account of the discussion which took place on my motion at the Merthyr Board of Guardians on Saturday last. The motion, to my mind, was one of the most important, if not the most important, which has been submitted to the board for a great number of years. I must be allowed to state that, at the close of the business on Saturday, some of the guardians, who had not voted in favour of the motion, told me that they agreed with the prin- ciple of the motion, and urged me to bring forward an amended motion, which they would support. This I am prepared to do without delay, when I have every confidence in obtaining a majority at the board. It will then be my desite that all boards of guardians in the country be asked to co-operate, more especially in the mining districts, and every other public board, with a view to move Parliament to pass an Act which shall make it compulsory upon aJl receivers of royalties to contribute towards the local burdens. It will be for Parliament to decide in what proportion.— I am, &c., J). E. WILLIAMS. Hirwain. [This letter was delayed in transmission,]" no

NEWPORT TOWN COUNCIL. The monthly meeting of the members of this corporation was held at the Town-hall, Newport, on Tuesday, the Mayor (Mr T. Beynon) pre- siding. There were also present Aldermen H. J. Davis and Wyndham Jones, Mr J. R. Jacob (ex-Mayor), Councillors W. G. Cartwright, W. West, S. Goss, J. C. Sanders, A. n. Bear, A. Blake, O. Goss, F. Phillips, II. Faidkner, G. Hoskius, T. Pugsley, W. Oliver, T. Jones, D. A. Vaughan, E. Griffiths, and J. R. Richards.—The minutes of the last meeting were read and con- firmed. PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE AND THE ROADS. The public works committee reported that they had directed the deputy town clerk to write to the secretary of the Tramways Company, complaining of the dirty state of the tramcars and of the in- efficient manner in which the employes did their duty. They also recommended the acceptance of the tender of Mr Henry Cox, at £117 10s for the Church-street improvements, and of that of Mr George Watkins at £150 for the Court-y-hella- street improvements.—The surveyor's estimate for these improvements was respectively £162. The committee also recommended that private improvements be made on the east side of Clytha-square, Portland-street, Castle-stieet, por- tion of High-street, and Mill-parade and that the borough surveyor be instructed to serve notices to repair footpaths wherever necessary in unadopted streets.—Mr Vaughan called attention to the con- dition of Chepstow-road, in which he said there were ruts and accumulations of water in all direc- tions, so as to render it almost impassable.— Mr E. Griffiths provoked laughter and hear, hear," by asserting that he thought it high time the roads in the East Ward were attended to. Many of the streets were covered with water, and in some cases a boat, might be sailed over them. (Renewed laughter.)—The Surveyor said that for the case of the private streets there was really no remedy. The ground landlords had been asked to do the work, but had declined, and until the streets were adopted by the corporation nothing beyoud patching could be thought of. It was really not a matter to be referred to him, but one to be dealt with by the whole corporation. He would suggest that the first fine day the public works committee inspect the streets.—Alderman Davies You mean the first wet day. (Laughter.) —Ultimately the matter was left in the hands of the'committee, and their report was adopted. THE MORTGAGE OF THE TOWN-HALL. The finance committee recommended that a memorial be forwarded to the Lords of the Trea- sury asking permission that the sum of £1,170, the proceeds of a sale of corporate property, and now lying at the bankers, be appropriated towards payment of a mortgage of £1,300 on the Town- hall. It seemed from the deputy town clerk's statement that this money was borrowed at 4 per cent in the year 1853, and that since this time the interest had been a charge upon the rates. If in- vested in consols, the £1,170 would yield only 3 per cent, so that if "my lords" assented, the rates would be benefited to the extent of 1 per cent by the transaction.—It was resolved, on the motion of the ex-Mayor, seconded by Alderman W. Jones, to forward the memorial to the Trea- sury. A SEWER LOAN. The public works committee reported that the contractor for the Bridge-street sewer was entitled to the payment of £24-4 on account of his con- tract, leaving about JB50 for extras, about which the surveyor explained that there was some dis- pute. It was agreed to draw a cheque for pay- ment of the money, and to apply to the Local Government Board for sanction to borrow JE600, the cost of making the sewer. Mr Ü. Goss thought it a very small sum to obtain a loan for but the ex-Mayor said it represented a penny in the pound on the rateable value. FINANCIAL MATTERS. The finance committee recommended that the Nelson Hewertpon bequest of £1,300, now lying at the bank to the free library account, be utilised to pay current expenses of the new library build- ings, instead of borrowing from the bank until the library loan was obtained. This was carried, and it was resolved to pay the contractor to the new library buildings £200 on account of work done. The finance committee also reported that Air Francis Vigors, the umpire in the late arbitration case, was entitled to J6192 16s on account of ser- vices rendered in connection with the arbitration cases, and it was agreed to draw a cheque for the money. THE NEW STREET. The finance committee recommended the pay- ment to Mr Batchelor of £420 for land required for the new street, and also that £1,954 16s 7d be paid to Mr Arthur Evans for the fee farm rent on a freehold house in Park-street, for the Oliver- square property, for three houses in Corn-street, for the freehold of another house in Corn-street, and ftv a piece of laud in line with the northern boundary of the Town-hall.—1The Mayor remarked that lie thought the sale proposed for adoption was a very favourable one for the town, and a settlement which at one time he did not think would be accomplished. He might say that Mr fivans met the committee in a very gentlemanly manner, and had acted very fairly indeed. He proposed that the report be adopted, and that the corporate seal be affixed to the agreement for the purchase.—Mr Jacob seconded the motion, and it was carried. XIIK EXTENSION OF THE TOWN-HALL. The clerk to the Newport School Board wrote on the subject of providing school board offices in any scheme for the extension of the Town-hall,and intimated that the board would be gla.d to be accommodated in that respect.—The Mayor said it was admitteù by every member of the council that all the public offices should be accommodated in the town-hall, when it was extended. (Hear, hear.) As soon as plans could be obtained, he thought tenders should be invited from architects, and prizes offered for the best mode of arranging the new buildings. He should like to see the county-court held in the new building.—The ex- Mayor pointed out that if all the space could not be obtained on the same side of the street, there was land on the opposite side of the road which might be utilised. He would suggest that the question be speedily dealt with, because it was only by making a definite promise last year to the inspector to provide police accommo- dation and cells that the £2,000 payment by the Lords of the Treasury was secured. He was afraid, if the matter was not attended to at the earliest possible moment, the payment this year might be jeopardised. He proposed that a joint committee, consisting of the parliamentary and public works committees, be appointed to consider the matter.—Alderman Davis said that what was going to be done would be for the use of the town for many years to come, and it was therefore important that it should be done well and effectually. As there was very little room 011 the side of the street on Which the present building was erected, he thought it desirable that the town prison (for what was wanted was very little else), the magistrates' office, and the school board offices should be built on the other side of the street, leaving the present building available for Town-hall purposes proper. He endorsed the proposal that the two commit- tees be associated together, and seconded the pro- position.—Mr Vaughan said the council would need to go the other side of the street. The school board at present paid £20 or £25 per annum for rent, and this sum necessarily came out of the rates. There was no provision for school board offices at present.—The Mayor: You J may have a quarter sessions there as well, and get a piece of ground and keep it ready for them. (Hear, hear.)—The motion was carried. THE LEVEL CROSSING NCISAXCE. Mr SANDERS brought before the council the great inconvenience caused by the long and frequent closing of the iron gates at the railway level crossing in Commercial-road, and moved that the matter be referred to the public works committee, with a request that they report to the council.—Mr Sanders said that every argu- ment which was used on it former occasion ap- plied equally now, if not with greater force. As recently as last Saturday evening, at ten o'clock, the gates were closed, and a great deal of shunt- ing was being dime, whilst a large number of foot passengers, tramcars, and other vehicles had to wait. Only that very fnorning, as he was walking to the council meeting; the gates were uncere- moniously shut in his face. If the gatemen would inflict such nn indignity on a town council- lor, how must the general public be treated ? (Laughter.) — The Mayor They treat the mayor just the same. (Renewed laughter.)—Mr Phillips And Lord Tredegar, if he happened to be passing.—The Mayor The only way of dealing with the matter is to have a subway.—Alderman Davis pointed out that the directors of the Great Western Railway Com- pany, when a deputation from the council waited upon them on the subject last year, delayed it because the chairman was absent, hut said that the question was really part only of a far larger one affecting all the level crossings, and asso- ciated with the desire of the company to obtain more accommodation for their traffic across Com- mercial-road.—The Mayor said he was afraid the town would have to meet the company in the matter of expense. The ratepayers ought to be willing to do almost anything to get rid of such a nuisance.—Ultimately Mr Sanders withdrew his motion, and seconded that proposed by Mr Jacob, to the effect that the matter be referred to the Parliamentary committee, and that they be au- thorised, if necessary, to appoint a deputation to wait on the directors of the Great Western Rail- way to consider the whole question.—This resolu- tion was agreed to.
ISANDULA." In presenting the Zulu war medal last month to the Naval Volunteers, Sir Evelyn Wood de- scribed the gallant stand made at Isandula in eloquent term8, relying partly 011 his own inspec- tion of the field and partly on accounts given him by Zulus who had been engaged on the other side. In front of them," he said, and to their right crept on a resistless singing wave of black bodies, which, though constantly smitten with leaden hail, was broken but to sweep on again with re- newed force. Half-a-mile in their left rear stood the Nodwengu Regiment, as yet motionless, but ready to complete the death-closing circle. Past this devoted band there rushed a crowd of terri- fied non-combatants, hurrying- from the already biii-iiingcaiiij) through the rapidly-narrowing outlet over the fatal Nek. But all this confusion, and the certainty of a cruel death, far from unsteadying your comrades, served but to deepen their resolu- tion to cover the retreat of the guns. There they stood, there they fought, and there they died. The record of what colonist soldiers did is there in silence and in death, but none the less a living record now, aye, and for ever." One of the most interesting features of the occasion was the presentation of the war medal to two Natal chiefs, Jantje and Tetelaka, w ho rendered signal service during the war, and who were delighted at having the medal pinned on to their coats with Sir E. Wood's own hands. The next day two marble tablets, one to the memory of Colonel Durnford, the other to the memory of the Natal volunteers, were unveiled in Bishop Colenso's cathedral, when an eloquent and touching discourse was de- livered by the bishop himself.

THE ESCAPE FROM THE KENT COUNTY ASYLUM. THE STORY OF MR ELLIOTT'S CONFINEMENT. Mr William Hall, of Penstone, Lancing, has published the following correspondence between himself and Mr William Balston, of Springfield, Maidstone, chairman of the visiting justices of the Kent County Asylum :— "To W. Balston, Esq., Chairman,Visiting Justices of the Kent County Asylum, Springfield, Maid- stone. Sir,—I have noticed in the public papers that the visiting justices for the Kent County Asylum. of which body I believe you are chairman, have resolved to petition the Legislature in favour of some changes in the Lunacy Laws, so that per- sons aiding the escape of lunatics may be more severely dealt with, and that you may be enabled to reincarcerate alleged lunatics who may have been able to sustain themselves for fourteen days without your fostering care. Early in October last I wrote to the clerk of the Lewisham Guardians with resjiect to Mr Elliott's continued imprisonment, and was by him referred to the visiting justices. I sought an appointment with your board, through your clerks (Messrs Beale and Hoar), and by appointment waited upon you on the 12th October last. That I might not go wholly unaccredited, I presented you with a letter of introduction from my friend, Mr William Angeratein, a justice of the peace for the county, and formerly member for Greenwich. He was good enough to inform you that I enjoyed his con- fidence. Iwassomewhatdisheartened,on enter- ing your asylam at eleven o'clock in the morning, to find that although you were not prepared to see me before one, I could not be allowed to see the unfortunate object of my solicitation. I did, however, see my friend, not by the will of the officials, but by my knowledge of the interior of your dread abode. Before seeking an appoint- ment with your board I had addressed a respect- ful letter to Dr. ^Davies, intimating my willing- ness to give Mr Elliott the opportunity of earning his own living, and offering to take care of him but to your clerks I officially intimated that I wished to make an application with reference to a patient. Upon my entering the room, and be- fore I had an opportunity of speaking, you were good enough to mform me that vou had con- sidered my application, and that you were not disposed to grant it.' .Biit when I told you that I had made no application to you, and that the letter to Br. Davies wa.s not intended for your perusal, you were good enough to say, then we will hear you.' I addressed you sitting as I felt too much contempt for you to rise. I pointed out to you that the piobablv noble birth of Mr Elliott was a palliation of his unfortunate conduct in early life, and which certainly lie had long since regretted I tried to explain to you that his suspicions as to your intention to deprive him of his life—you have given him the terrors of a life 111 deatn for twenty years—were born of the vice of your asylum, and would be swept away if you would release your hold of him. When 1 urged upon you that he had neither homicidal nor suicidal tendencies, and relied for proof and de- monstration of that opinion from the fact that you had long permitted him to walk beyond the bounds of the asylum, without an attendant, you displayed your ignorance of the system pursued by stoutly denying the fact, and in which I freely admit you were supported by Dr. Davies. I re- tired by your order while my opponent remained. yull had lot thought it necessary to call the object of my solicitude to your presence as you pretended to consider the matter you had already con- sidered before I entered the room. O11 my re- entrance. you informed me that you and your brother j ustices were 'unanimously of opinion that I was not entitled to make the application, that Mr Elliott was a dangerous lunatic, and would make the first use of his liberty to murder his wife.' Again I called your attention to the liberty which you had given him, and mentioned to vou that to my certain knowledge Mr Elliott had, unattended, visitec. Eat. Farleigh and Leeds, about three and five miles distant respectively from the asylum. You were relieved from giving any answer by Dr. Bavies, who informed you that if Mr Elliott went such distances from Maidstone he was ac- dom pan led by an attendant. I apologised for what I then conceived was my mis-statement, and withdrew from your mock tribunal. I imme diately sought Mr Elliott, and said to him, My dear boy, 1 am afraid you have somewhat misled me in this matter of your permission to leave the asylum. He said he had not, and offered to meet me on the VV atenngbury-ioad. There I met him at the time appointed, and found on his person the pass which I now give you in full Kent County Asylum, Banning Heath, near Maid- stone, June 1, 1881.—The bearer, Alfred Elliott, has my consent to walk beyond the asylum grounds alone, between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. — F. Pritchard Davies, M.B.' Superintendent.' I need scarcely say I was dis- gusted beyond my powers of expression, and immediately oil reaching home I addressed myself to the Lunacy Commissioners, calling their atten- tion to Mr Elliott, and stating that I had distinct charges to make against the officials of the asylum. The commissioners immediately informed me that they had no jurisdiction over the visiting justices. To what perverse uses may language be applied when you are called justices After this my friendship, my peace of mind, my very courage as a man was challenged to set the law at defiance, and release the victim of the system which you administer. The system would not be quite so bad if you could administer it with jus- tice and fairness. One word I ha.ve in conclusion to say, and it gives me great pleasure to record it—that, having regard to the odious position of a sane man in a lunatic asylum, 1 am bound to admit that from all that I have heard Mr Elliott was latterly kindly treated by the present officials of the asylum, and especially by Dr. Davies, Dr. Mur- dock, under whose especial care he was, by Mr Cooper, the head attendant, and by Mr Apple- yard, the steward."
SUSPICIOUS DEATH OF A LADY. The death of Airs Wilson, of Mount Emerald, Kempsey, is to be still further enquired into. It will be remembered that the lady, who was 79 years of age, died last week under suspicious cir- cumstances, and an enquiry disclosed the fact that her son, a nmn of independent means, had a few days before her death, struck her in the face and blackened her eyes, knocking her off her chair, he being intoxicated at the time. It also transpired that the old lady had fallen down stairs within recent date, As the medical men were unable to determine whether the injuries from which she died were produced by the fall down- stairs or the blow of the son, the jury returned a ver- dict of Died from natural causes," at the same time requesting the coroner to severely censure the son for his inhuman conduct. Since the inquest the county police have taken the matter up, and on Saturday Deputy Chief Constable Checketts having obtained a warrant, arrested Mr Wilson at his residence, and he remained in custody until Monday, when lie was taken before Mr Perrins, at the county magistrates' office, and formally charged with the manslaughter of his mother. The prisoner seemed to feel his position very much. He was remanded until Tii,,sday, lie being allowed out on bad, himself in £ 200 and two sure- ties of £100 each. His sureties were Mr W. Wilson, Pencoyd, near Ross and Mr J. J. Wil- son, Crowle, relatives of the accused. Mrs Wilson was bmiedat Salwarpc on Monday, in the family vault.
