You also give the verdict of the Coroner's jury, and any man having a spark of humanity cannot hut en dorse the opinion which jon there express — 'That this case is roost painful in in its character, and should have been otherwise dealt with.' Wonld not the police, under the circum stances, have been fully justified in taking the unfortunate deceased to the Hospital, where he would have received medical treatment and all necessary attention.

He arrives at the long looked for shore ; he sees food on the wharf, and rushes at it with all ima ginable fnry. and having in bis eye that peculiar witdness which is ever character istic of insanity, his treatment was easily understood....

The North Australian. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 27 February 1864
%\t |tovtj gastraliait. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27. ISG4. The petition to the Duke of Newcastle seems to have been exceedingly sugges tive. Not content with the leading articles in various journals, Mr. Her bert must indite a critiaue of his mm composition upon its contents, and six days after bis Excellency had received the objectionable document, takes upon himself most irregularly to acknowledge its transmission to the Governor. He really had nothing to do with the matter. The petition was forwarded in due coarse to the Governor, to transmit to the Secretary of State, and any uo tice of its receipt should officially and properly — as well as calmly and 'inflex- ibly*— have come from the Private Se cretary. Why will Mr. Hesbebt insist But he complains of numerous mis representations' which be proposes to correct. There are two ways of dealing with accusations of this kind — one by meeting the alleged untruths, the other by showing the untruthfulaess of the accuser. Mr. Herbert does not...

Sydney Markets. We have received onr usual files of the S. ST. Herald to the 22nd instant, from which we give the following summary : — The new tariff has given much dissatis tion to the mercantile community, and bas tended materially to check transactions «f any magnitude. The uncertainty with re gard to the duties imposed on articles in cluded in this tariff will, however, soon be at an end, the third reading of the Customs Bill in the Legislative Council being fixed (or Tuesday next, when it is believed the hill will be thrown ont. Shonld it come back to the Assembly, it is unlikely to become law, the Legislative Council having taken the unusual course of amending a money bill. The alterations they have made are as fol lows: — They have taken off the additional duty of Ss. per lb. on cigars, aud bare omitted the dnty an furniture, boots and shoes, saddlery and harness, and carriages. The effect of these amendments will there fore deprive the Government, if the bill passes, of the...

Bread stuns have a downward tendency, and the demand has. been mncb greater within the last few days. Our wholesale houses report more favorably of the past week, general stocks having been, freely asked for. and altogether a greater scale of badness has been gut over at very fair prices.
