THE KELLY SYMPATHISERS. BEECWORTII, Tuesday. Isaiah Wright, Francis Hearty, Thomas Lloyd, Richard Strickland, John Quin James Quin, John Lloyd, James Clancy, Daniel Clancy, and John Cain, were again brought before Mr. Foster, P.M., to-day, charged with aiding and abetting the Kelly gang. Superintendent Furnell asked that the prisoners should be remanded for another week. Mr Zincke opposed the application, and protested that it was both unjust and illegal to continue the imprisonment of the men without any evidence against them. The police magistrate concurred, and said four months ought to be sufficient to enable the police to produce evidence sufficient to justify the further retention of the prisoners. As such evidence was not forthcoming, he would discharge the whole of them. The men then left the court, with several friends who were waiting for them.

SKETCHES IN THE NEW EDUCATION OFFICES. '-4--- BY A lOItRMIIAN. (Continued.) Suddenly door No 3 opened, and out darted a short man, whose ruddy complexion stamped him a descendant of Esau. This I ascertained to be Inspector Main, formerly a successful head- teacher under the Denomina tional Board. Two young men immediately singledthemselves out from the crowd, and "made for" this gentleman. One of them, a rather dandifled stripling, with thin legs encased in very tight unmentionables, and possessing a gold watch-chain datngling Iprominently from Ihis vest, addressed the nepeetor in a low tone, suitable to the solemnity of the occasion, accompanying the action with an obsequious bow. His request having been preferred, (with what suocess deponent saith not) Mir Main was proceeding on his way, when the other young man afore said interrupted his progress. This individual was of quite a different stamp mentally' though, slight, thin and dark like the other. He evidently found it very diff...
