4ND CENTRÂT, QcEEKSfiiWD A.DVËBTISEU. THÜRSDAT, MARCH If, 1872. THE S. M. Herald of March 2 exposes a piece of flagrant corruption on the part of the Government of New South Wales, and of brazen audacity on the part of Mr. GARRETT, formerly a member of the Legislative Assembly, and recently Police Magistrate at Scone.

But for a time he managed to defer tho evil day, and as "JACK ROBERTSON'S jackall"- made himself very useful to that eminent patriot and partner in distress. By-and bye, Mr. ROBERTSON sacrificed his political principles to coalesce with Sir JAMES MAHTTN, and it soon leaked out that b¡B friend GARRETT was to be provided for. Indeed, it was broadly stated in the Houeo that Mr. GARRETT had been promised a Police Magistracy ; yet the ltonouràblc gentleman retained his seat, and continued bis slavish support to the MARTIN cum ROBERTSON Minist...

A DüVotrniNG PASSION.-It will bo remem- bered that one of tbe excuses plcudod for ilie negroes in the Jamaica insurrection was that justice was not fairly administered. To judge from tbe following, story, there seems to hare boen eorao ground for tho complaint:-"A tclagram from Kingston, Jamaica, to the New Tors: papers, says that a negro woman, of highly respectable character in the community, has been arrested opon an extraordinary charge of cannibalism. The accusation alleges that she has killed end- eaten 26 children, whom she had inveigled into lier premises for the purpoae."
