NAPIER. The Chief Justice opened the criminal sittings of the Supreme Court this morning. The calendar was unusually light; and the Judge's charge of a very ordinary nature. In the case of Herman Finch, committed for trial on a charge of forgery of a settler's name to a letter, the witnesses were discharged, the accused having died last week. True bills were returned in all the cases submitted to the Grand Jury. The hearing of the charge against Thomas Plank of breaking into the Ormondville railway station is proceeding.
