Whisby, who was injured m the railway accident at Fish River tanks on Sunday morning, died to-day.

Thirteen members of the Legislative Council some time ago signed a memorandum protesting against the appointment of new Councillors! and forwarded it to his Excellency the Governor. Lord Carrington sent the protest to Lord Knutsford, accompanied by a memorandum from the Premier justifying the appointment on the ground of expediency, and urging the necessity of making appointments of new members to fill the places of those in- ' capacitated by old age. Lord Knutsford has now replied, approving the appointment on the grounds urged by Sir H. Parkes.
