    Notes 
    • A Miscarriage of Justice.In the Assembly on June 7 Mr. "Waddell moved
      that a select committee be appointed, with power
      to Bend for persons and papers, to inquire into
      and report upon the case of John Deniff, who was
      convicted on February 4 last, at Dubbo, on a
      charge of stealing a sum of money from ono
      Christie Cunningham, and was sentenced to two
      yearBs imprisonment, but waB subsequently re
      leased after a magisterial inquiry. He explained
      the circumstances of the case, and said there was
      a strong feeling in the district that a miscarriage'
      of justice had taken place, and a number
      of gentlemen had come to Sydney to
      ask him to have the matter opened up.
      Mrs. Deniff, who was a delicate woman, died after
      her husband's conviction, medical evidence show
      ing that the shock had caused her death. Deniff's
      business had abo been ruined, and he lost large
      sums of money in defending the case. Mr. Suttor
      admitted the hardship of the case; but it had
      been shown that the conviction of Deniff was due
      to the inability of his solicitor. It was no part of
      the Government's duty to pay recompense in auch
      cases; but as this was an exceptional one, he did
      not think the Government would resist any pro-
      posal of compensation that the House might
      make. The motion was agreed to. [5]
