Dr Garland baa been attending him, and, bb he did not appear to ba getting better, It waa deemed desirable that another medical man should be called In, and Dr Batchalor was accordingly brought up from Dunedin. He aaw the patient two d»y.>, at whfoh time be waa at his worst ; but no Improvement fltiemed to take plaoe yesterday, and Dr Batchalor returned to Dunedin, both he and his ooltaague (Dr Girlaad) seeming to have hope of the Earl'e recovery.' Very R-eat sympathy has been evinced by those of the public who have been made aware of the .Karl's aerlona condition, and, although we were acqaa ! nted with the unfortunate circumstance*, we abstainod fr^m making aay m sntlon of it for reosana that .will,' we have no doubfc, b>i obvious to our readera.
