INTERPROVINCIAL

[Per United Press Association.]

WELLINGTON, October 10.

At the inquest last night Mrs Corrado admitted that she drowned her child iu the morning when she went to wash, and took it out of the bath between 3.30 and 4 p.m. She appears to bo entirely unconcerned, and her frequent interjections were made generally with a laugh. Her conduct left little doubt that her mind is unhinged. Mr Fergus left overland this morning for Auckland, there to meet Major-general Edwards for the purpose of arranging a tour of inspection of the volunteers. Mrs Corrado ia to bo examined by doctors to-day as to her sanity. Should their report confirm the opinion that she is of unsound mind, tho pressnt proceedings will be abandoned, and she will be placed in an asylum. Nothing has yet been decided in regard to Mr Hislop rejoining the Ministry. The steamer Staffs, has left for the Three Kings to search for any traces of the County of Carnarvon or her crew, some of whom, it D thought just possible, may be found there. As the ship was probably lost at the er d of June, there is not much liklihood of any survivors being found. She proceeds from Russell along the coast, and thence to the Three Kings, returning within five days.
