Th® new police magistrate at Norman ton—Williams, who replaced M'Groarty—is sairi to be already very unpopular; but report does not yet add why- However, popularity does Dot always indicate good magistracy. A Thubsday Island correspondent writes:—" The Thursday Island Wrecking Syndicate, is Jubilant. It anticipates making a good haulfrom the wreckage of the John del Castro, whichis now ashore on Torres Reef. Sharks were in the vicinity of the vessel soon after the accident; bqt tliey wereneither so numerous norraven ous as the land-sharks that were in the vicinity ofthe adjacent shore. : Brother Jonathan, however, calculates having a big say^in the matter, as the John .de Castro is an American venel."
