TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—ln your report of this case I notice that the respondent is made to say in crossexamination that "he hadnotpaid the LI,IOO for which petitioner had obtained judgment against him ; all he had paid was L 3 a month under the Judge's order." This is not correct. What Mr D'Albedyhll said (I quote from my notes, taken eo imtanti) was: " Mrs D'Albedyhll got all I had. She got L 550 and the Mayhank property, which cost about L3OO, and I have sinco paid her L 3 per month." The judgment was for LBO3 and interest and costs.

Your report does not state—what was the fact—that Dr Fitchett (petitioner's counsel) admitted in his address to the jury that Miss Matthews was a witness of truth, and unreservedly withdrew the gross charges marie against her in the suit; and it omits the very grave remarks of His Honor in connection therewith.—l am, etc.,

Alex. S. Adams

Dunedin, September 27.

[At the late hour at which His Honor's address to the jury was given, we could not do other than greatly condense it. After mentioning that the charge of adultery with Miss Matthews had been withdrawn, His Honor went on to say that "he supposed that this was an admission that this scene was not as described, and if so then Mrs D'Albedyhll had either imagined or invented something which had not taken place; and in either case the credibility of her evidence was, of course, affected. It was hardly necessary to point out that one of the letters written by Mrs D'Albedyhll to Miss Matthews was palpably inconsistent with the writer of it having really and honestly a belief that the person to whom sho was writing had very shortly before been guilty of a most disgusting impropriety with her husband."-Eu. E.S.]
