Ipswich, November 30
Richard CANTRELL, on remand, appeared at the Police Court this morning, on a charge of having attempted to murder his wife, and was further remanded for a week, Sub-inspector O'DRISCOLL intimating that the injured woman though improving would not be able to give her evidence for some time yet.

The bigamy case in which Carl August LUDCKE appeared as accused excited a good deal of interest. From the evidence it appeared that LUDCKE was married to Johanna Sophia DEGAN on the 9th of January, 1870, about four years ago the latter left her husband and took up her abode with her son, with whom she has been residing ever since. On the 31st of July last, the accused was married to Susanna SMITH, and these two had lived together as man and wife until LUDCKE was arrested on the present charge. The accused, when arrested, told the constable that the affair was not his fault, but that he had married the woman on the advice of Mr. FRANCIS, who is a J.P., and well-known resident of this town. LUDCKE reserved his defence, and was committed to take his trial at the District Court on Friday next, bail being allowed, himself in £80 and two sureties of £40 each.

At the Laidley Police Court on Thursday last, Arthur HUGHES was charged with a breach of the Licensing Act, inasmuch as he had failed to have his name painted over his licensed billiard saloon in Patrick-street.

He was mulcted in the sum of 10s., and his license was cancelled forthwith.

It appears from a private letter received in Sydney that the death of Midshipman HEATH of H.M.S. Nelson, which was recently announced by cable, occurred at Koepang, in Timor, and was caused by the accidental discharge of his gun, which he had given to a marine to hold. Mr. HEATH was only a couple of yards off at the time, and the charge of shot penetrated his liver, killing him instantly.

Miss Essie JENYNS was married to Mr. John R. WOOD, of Newcastle, in St. Andrew's Cathedral to-day. The event excited great interest, and the press of the general public in the cathedral was so great that the marriage party had difficulty in making their way through the building. The crushing and rushing crowd inside and outside of the building brought about many disgraceful scenes. Some ladies and children got very rough treatment, and many, including the bride, were reduced to a fainting condition. The cathedral fittings were seriously damaged, seats, railings, and gas standards being broken down, the curtains torn, and carved woodwork chipped and broken, and all the handsome floral decorations destroyed.

A magisterial inquiry has been held into the circumstances connected with the death, by drowning, of a Cingalese named SIMON, one of the men of the lugger Keane. It appears that the lugger was shelling in the Warrior Passage on the morning of the 23rd November. At 8 o'clock a diver came up for breakfast, and sat down on the deck-house. Immediately after the cook sang out " Look out, SIMON will stick you with his knife." The diver turned round quickly and saw SIMON with a large shell knife uplifted ready to strike. SIMON then threw the knife on the deck and jumped overboard and sank. SIMON could not swim, and the efforts of the divers to find the body were futile.

A fatal accident occurred yesterday in the Black Jack Block mine. The manager, who had been below, signalled to the engine- driver to bring him up. and when within 40ft of the top the bucket stopped, and he heard some one cry," Stop the engine!" As he could not make any-one hear, he climbed the remaining 40ft. by the rope, and going into the engine -shed, was horrified to find PATE, the driver, entangled in the winding gear, and dreadfully mangled. It was found that the bone of one of the man's legs had blocked the drum and prevented more loss of life by over-winding the bucket, as it must then have fallen in the workings with the manager. PATE was so entangled that parts of the machinery had to be moved to get him out, and he died almost immediately afterwards. He leaves a wife and two children, the former being near her confinement. There is no explanation as to the cause of the accident. The deceased was a steady and efficient driver.
