He was still absent, and Mr. Thompson applied fur a further adjournment, which Mr. lirown opposed on the ground that ample time had sufficed for the return of the defendant, and he further added that, were the case nut tried now, it would be a denial of justice to the plaiutiil', who was to sUrt that very day for New Zealand, and did not purpose returning to the colony. On an affidavit to that effect being prepared, his Honor de. cided on proceeding with the case.

WRECK OFTHE 'ALEXANDER AND 'JOHN.' Since the date of our last ii-ue, we regret to have to chronicle tlie loss of the Alexander and John, a fine schooner, belonging to Messrs. J. and A. ISrnwn, of Minmi. The vessel had only come into port on Sundny last, from Sydney, and on Wednesday, was outward bound lor the ? r.ne destination, with a cargo composed of forty tons of coal and the same quantity of cuke. She was leaving the hrrbour about 5 p.m., the wind blowing fresh from the north-east at the time, with a cross sea on, caused hy the rhb tide. VI hilst heating out opposite Nobbys, she missed Ftays, some of her steering gear having been carried away, and she ran in between two rocks, with her stern to the sea, which was breaking all round her. The accident was wit. nessed by several parties, and Captain Allan, the harbour master, at once directed the lifeboat and one of the pilot hoatn to go off to the assistance of the vessel and crew.
