77. Esmond Hannell

Newcastle, Monday,
The late rains caused the Tuggerah Lake to become quite fresh, and the winds 'sanded' up the entrance from the sea. An extraordinary scene is described by Mr. Esmond Hannell and a number of gentlemen who camped there. At the lowest commutation, fully 200 tons of fish were killed in their efforts to reach salt water. Their force was so great that it was impossible to stand among them. There were sea-mullet by thousands, many of fully 2ft 6in. One man stringed seven, but could not lift them, and they were dying in tens of thousands. Large eels, black fish, bream, and other kinds were among the huge shoal.

THE GARRICK CASE'- Melbourne, May 12.
The extraordinary divorce case of Garrick v. Garrick was concluded to-day when Mr. Justice Hood granted Joseph Garrick an order nisi. In giving his decision his Honour said: 'I do not know what to say about this unfortunate woman.  Her manner in the box seemed to me to be that of a woman who had not full possession of her senses. She frequently contradicted herself. I do not for a moment assert that she was lying. I say it is impossible to rely upon her evidence. The story she tells is un believable. The petitioner's evidence shows no connivance, and he was never acquiescent. He was simply doing what he was entitled to do, trying to catch his wife in the act.
