CORRESPONDENCE. To THE EDITOB OF TUE BUMEHK. Sm,-I trust you will excuas the liberty I take in trespassing upon your space, but a stern senBe of duty prompts me to direct. the attention of I thc authorities and the public to the fact of tho condition of a poor demented creature known aa the Cranky Chinaman, and who generally takes up his qnartors nightly on a verandah in Quay-street, The poor fellow baa only a few i rags to cover his body, end at Dight this poor wretch shivers the hours away till morning dawns, when he manages to pickup a precarious living by mendicity and collecting filthy garbage from the gutter, which I have seen him devour voraciously.
