[From Our Own Correspondent,]

AUCKLAND, August 14,

The following appears in one of the Sydney daily papers relative to the fatal accident to Captain Hansby, of tho s.s. Dupleix : —" Shortly after ten o'clock last night a tram fatality occurred near the intersection of King and Elizabeth streets. Captain Hansby, of the steamer Dupleix, attempted to jump on to the Paddington tram just as it had crossed King street. He missed his footing and fell between two cars. Ho then rolled under the footboard and was severely crushed. Tho tram was stopped just in time to prevent tho wheels passing over him. He was conveyed to Sydney Hospital by Constable Rutley, where, on examination, he was found to have sustained abrasions of tho head and arm, the fracture of several ribs on the right side, and shock to the system. The unfortunate man died a few minutes after his admission from hemorrhage of the lungs."
