WILLIAM JAMES
A lunatic, convicted at the last Circuit Court at Fauresmith of the murder of one Charles FAIR, at Philippolis, some months since, is with the consent and approval of His Excellency Governor WODEHOUSE to be forthwith forwarded to Colesberg, and there handed over to the colonial authorities to be passed on, as we suppose, from thence to the lunatic asylum on Robben Island, by first opportunity.
JAMES belongs, however, in a manner to the Cape Colony, he having, as we understand made his escape from the hospital at Port Elizabeth shortly before the commission of the crime for which he is now in custody.

NOTICE
The undersigned hereby gives notice that after Messrs. James EVANS and B.C.E. PROES, having been unlawfully appointed trustees in the estate of his brother-in-law, J.H.LEIBRANDT, without a meeting of the heirs or their agent having been called together, he has protested at the Orphan Chamber against the appointment of the aforementioned two persons, because Mr. James EVANS has received the sum of about £900, on the strength of a power of attorney, given to him by my late brother-in-law, and being the just the only person who has to render account of this money to the trustees, and Mr. PROES being a political fugitive and absent from Potchefstroom for more than four months already.
As no notice has been taken of his protest by the Orphan Chamber, the undersigned, as the only heir in this country, feels himself compelled to publish his protest, and to arrest all further proceedings in the estate until he has brought the matter before a proper court.

FATAL ACCIDENT
We regret to state that Mr. Adrian van WYK, senior of ‘Tours-fontein’ but who has of late resided chiefly on his farm low down on the Orange River, was the other day killed through his horse having run away, dragging him along the ground, the deceased’s foot being untangled in the stirrup. Mr. van WYK was a most kind and hospitable man to strangers as well as acquaintances.

FATAL GUN ACCIDENT
On the 21st ult. About 6 O’clock in the evening. Mr. G.O. BIEL, shopkeeper of Edenburg, on his journey from that village in Fauresmith, lost his life near “Oberholzoradam” 2½ hours from Fauresmith, by the accidental-discharge of a gun, which he was in the set of pulling out of the cart in which he was travelling. The hammer was down on the cap at the time, and the trigger catching in one of the rails of the vehicle, caused the instantaneous death of Mr. BIEL. His fellow passengers, Messrs. J.P. du TOIT and J. POULTON were of course greatly shocked at this sad and sudden termination of the life of a friend.
