Charles Maidment sued A. A. Hunter for £48 2s 6d due upon one contract, and £24 2s 4d upon two others. The contracts were all entered into at differnt times, though all were being carried on simultaneously. Mr Buckley, who appeared for the defendant, pointed out that the case did not come within the jurisdiction of the Court, as the payments which had been made to plaintiff had not been made on any particular contract, but on the whole work in hand. Mr Ollivier combatted this view of the case, on the plea that all the contracts were not only disjoined as well as taken at different periods, but the conditions and rates of pay were also different. After portion of the evidence had been taken the magistrate said he felt considerable doubt as to the question of jurisdiction, and as the absence of a material witness for plaintiff would prevent the case from being concluded at once he suggested a short adjournment. By mutual agreement Saturday next was fixed for the rehearing

Charles Maidment was charged with having made use of threatening language towards his wife, Hannah Maidment, wherefore she prayed that he might be bound over to keep the peace towards her. Mr. H. H. Travers appeared for the complainant and Mr. Edward Shaw for the accused, who denied the offence. The prosecutrix deposed that she had lived a most unhappy life with her husband, and had been obliged to leave the house and go to service. Some days ago she met the defendant, who said he would blow her brains out if she continued to go to Roe`s house at the Lower Hutt. In cross-examination by Mr Shaw, the witness said that she had deserted her husband for the purpose of living with Roe. She was not cohabiting with that person. She admitted that she had shown her daughter linen intended for a child about to be born, but denied she told the girl that it was for a child by Roe. She had been separated from her husband for over a year. At this stage Mr Travers said the revelation had taken him by surprise, and he did not intend to proceed further with it. The information was dismissed with costs

At the next sitting of the Supreme Court in Divorce and Matrimonial Causes Jurisdiction, the suit of Maidment v Maidment and another, is appointed for hearing. The petitioner, Charles Maidment, of Wellington, contractor, sues for a dissolution of marriage on the ground of the respondent's alleged adultery with the co-respondent, Samuel Rowe, of the Hutt, settler.

Since the marriage, petitioner and his wife lived together at Wairau, and subsequently at the Hutt, and there have been issue of ten children, the eldest of whom is married to a resident in Palmerston North. The petitioner alleges that on or about the 13th June 1881, and on other occasions since that date, and on the 28th March last, the respondent committed adultery with the co-respondent at the Hutt, wherefore the petitioner prays for a decree granting the annulment of his marriage, and further seeks that the co-respondent may be ordered to pay the sum of £1000 by way of damages, together with the whole of the costs incidental to the proceedings
