CHEMIS'S CASE OVER AGAIN
TO THE EniTOB. Sif,—Permit me to add to the narrative from the ' Timaru Herald, which, perhaps, was overlooked, the following:—Before death, and when receiving the last benefit of clergy, the sergeant made a confession, which (contrary to the usages of the Church of Rome in most instance*) was forwarded to the Government. If my memory serves me correctly, I think it was the Sandhurst case—certainly one exactly on all fours with ours of Kaiwarra. An application to the Victorian Government would, I have no doubt, get the confession, which would be instructive and interesting leading on the subject of evidence manufacturing. Cf course I don't presume anything of this kind may have taken place in Chemis's case.—l am, etc., tx Victorian. Dunedio, July 19.
