New Plimouih, May 1.

In the Supreme Court Judge Gillies, this morning in summing up in the oase of alleged porjury against Nelson, referred to the unusual length of the oase owing to so muoh irrelevant and trivial matter introduced into it by the defenoe. During fourteen years he had sat on the Bench, in whioh time he had . held oirouit in every distriot in New Zealand, but he had never seen a oase spun out to such unprecedented length. He referred to the way in whioh the defenoe had been oonduoted, and remarked that if it gave oounsel for the defenoe (Mr Jelliooe, of Wellington), gratification to insult oounsel opposing him (Mr Samuels, of New Plymouth), or officers of the Court, or the Court itself, then he (the Judge) was sure that he (Mr Jelliooe) was welcome to auoh gratification. He would not notioe the matter further, as it was not worthy of oontempt even. Suoh conduct should 'not influence the jury or himself, they had to judge from faots. Judge Gillies then prooeeded to refer to the case.
