Morrow, the defaulting secretary of the Ai chill Road Board, Auckland, has been released on twelve months' probation. There were four indictments containing twelve charges of having embezzled certain Btims of money belonging to the Archill Road Board. Mr Justice Conolly said that the probation officer did not recommend this as a case for probation, and had reported that the embezzlement had been carried on for some years. The indictment, however, showed a number of small embezzlements, all committed within one month, He had doubted whether, if there were a number of charges, and prisoner pleaded guilty to the first one, the subsequent charges could be considered as first offences. Ho should have arrived at tho conclusion that under such circumstances prisoner could not be considered a first offender, but the Chief Justice had dealt differently on such cases. Taking into consideration Morrow's youth and previous good character heretofore, he liquid grder that uppp the first charge he be placed under probation for twelve months, and oa the second, third, and fourth indictments he enter infa recognisances of 1400 to come up for Judgment when called upon. Hi 3 Honor did not make any order as to tho cost of the prosecution. Of President Carnot's face a clever word paicter writes: "It is long, very sallow, and the beard and moustache are still'almost perfectly black. It is one of those faces that seem to go all backward and slantwise. The forehead-retreats j the chin goes forward ; the cheek-bones are high." Carnot's eyeß are kind and tender, but very anxious, and his face is lined with care.
