The Wellington Tragedy. The Wellington papers state that the jury who sat on the Miller inpuost had a very unpleasant task in viewing the bodies, which were in exactly the same position as they were discovered. No reason whatever is assigned to this disgusting exhibition, which could certainty serve no good purpose, One newspaper seems to think that New Zealand law forbade the removal of the bodies until they had been viewed by the Coroner's jury, but this is altogether a mistake, and the late proceeding at Wellington was neither required by law nor sanctioned by practice.
