Joseph FOREMAN, a man well known in Napier, died in the Napier gaol at about 6.30 o'clock yesterday morning. He was arrested for drunkenness on last Saturday week, but as he was suffering from delirium tremens he was remanded for medical treatment. He got gradually lower, and died as stated.

At the R.M. Court on Saturday, before Mr W.R. BLYTHE, J.P.,
Samuel ROBERTSON was sentenced to 48 hours' hard labor for drunkenness.
William ADAMS, charged with lunacy, was remanded for medical examination. His hallucination appears to resemble that which Socrates suffered from, as ADAMS believes that a spirit, or "daimon," waits upon him and tells him what to do.

No less than six stowaways were found on board the steamer Tekapo shortly after she left Sydney on the 5th instant for Wellington. This, together with the very large number of passengers - over 200 - for New Zealand which she brought, tells its own tale of the state of affairs in Sydney. Many of the passengers are New Zealanders returning perhaps wiser but certainly poorer and sadder men.

Mr Sydney HOBEN leaves by coach for Rotorua this morning for the purpose of entering the sanatorium there in order to obtain treament for the affection of the arms which brought him back to New Zealand. The German doctors were hopeful that the sea voyage to the colony would effect a cure, but recommended, should it not do so, a long rest, to be followed by a sojourn at the Hot Lakes. Mr HOBEN has given his arms absolute rest during the past year, and it is hoped that Rotorua will do the rest.
