WAIPAWA, August 13,

An inquest was held at Ormandville yes terday on the body of Hiram Sydney Smith, who was found in a waterhole near Norsewood. The evidenoe disclosed a terrible state of things. Deceased and a man named Gibson started drinking on the 16th of last month, and kept it up to the 30th—or as long as the deceased had money. Then Gibson left him to wander about aimlessly in " the horrors." It is supposed that he made his way to the spring of water where he was found, and died there. From letters on the body it appeared that deceased received L3O since February, in two sums, from his wife and mother, who are in the Old Country. A verdict of " Found dead " was returned, and the jury added a rider censuring Gibson for his base conduct.
