NAPIER, August 12. Mr J. P. Balle, who wbb formerly captain of the schooner Prank Guy, and who lately retired from a seafaring life with a competence, committed Buicide by shooting himBelf with a revolver. The deed was evidently done last night, but, owing to deceased living by himself, it was only discovered this afternoon. Mr Balle had been suffering from low spirits of late. On a table a letter was found, in which deceased said he preferred going to Hell than to where ranting, howling Salvationists were to be fonnd, and that he did not dread the future.
