ACCIDENTS AND OFFENCES.
A Maori woman named Hamiora banged herself at Kennedy Bay, Coromsndel. Joseph Ward, a piano tuner at Wellington, has been committed for trial for in* decently assaulting a young childMr David Lawrence died on Monday night, after a somewhat painful and protracted illness. Some four months ago, while engaged clipping a fence, » gore* prickle entered the middle finger of Mr Lawrence's right hand. The wound at first was not considered of sufficient seriousness* to merit attention, but in the course of a few days it became troublesome, causing acute pain, and showing a tendency to inflammation. Dr Withers recommended the amputation of the injured finger, and the operation was successfully performed by Dra Withers and Blair, but, it is thought, toolate to prevent the fatal consequences which soon after manifested themselves. Symptoms of blood-poisoning very soon after showed themselves, and after a medical consultation it was decided to amputate the arm. It was ascertained, however, that this course was then not only useless but ini advisable, owing to the rapid spread of the poison, and the consequent effect on the system of the deceased. After that there was little hope of recovery; the deceased, who was confined to his bed, gradually sinking, and finaly dyiag of exhaustion on Monday night.—'Tuapeka Times/ AUCKLAND; Octobeb 16.

News has been received at Auckland of the death, in Sydney, of Mr Lionel Phillips, formerly manager for Ehrenfried brewery.
