TO THE BDITOB. Sir, —Allow me a few lines to point out another instance of the eccentricities of our J.P.s. Some time aero a man named Campbell wps brought before two J.P.s on a charge of stealing a cow. After a protracted hearing, in which the accused's defence was thoroughly gone into, the accused was committed for trial in spite of the vigorous protest of Mr Solomon, who defended him. To-day the Grand Jury (who hear only the evidence for the prosecution, and not the defence) throw out the bill. Ido not think any comment is necessary, but it does seem absurd that time should be wasted and money needlessly thrown away in such a manner.—l am, etc., Onlooker. Dunedin, July 1.
