THE RECENT FIGHT.
TO THE EDITOB.
Sib,—l have been frequently asked to-day why did I interfere at all. My answer is : Could I with any decency have gone back to my bed, I should have done so ; but my oath as a Justice of the Peace compelled me to act aa I did. It would be well if the police were instructed to know that the magistracy are the superior police of the colony. Major Gudgeon promised me this should be better notified in his new manual of police regulations. Needless to say, I keenly felt giving the evidence I did.—l am, etc., Fhudeeick Maiaabd, Dunedin, June 11.
