I am, Sir,
Secretary. Maitland Hospital, Feb. 14.
Sydney, 11th February, 1879.
SIB,-In compliance with request contained in your letter of the 6th instant I am directed by the Minister of Justice and Public Instruction to forward
herewith a copy of the correspondence that passed between T. W. Pearse, Esq., Coroner, West Maitland, and this Department, respecting the death ef a man named William M'Cormack, a patient that died in the Maitland Hospital.
I have the honour to be, Sir,
Your obedient servant,

West Maitland, October 21st, 1878. To the Under Secretary Department of Justice.
Sir-I have the honor to submit to you the follow- ing facts, and to ask for instruction for my guidance
On the 3rd of October, William M'Cormack WBS admitted as nn in-door patient of the Maitland Hos- pital, suffering from severe burns on his left side ; he remained a patient of the hospital umil the 20th October, on which dav he died, and was removed from the institution, th9 visiting surgeon giving a certificate as to the cause of death, viz,, ssvere burns. No report of the death was made to the police, and no report was made to me of the death until this afternoon, and then by one of the surgeons of the Hospital, from inquiries instituted by the police, I find it WSB the intention to inter the body to-day at four o'clock, at Cessnock, so that no time was left for me to institute proceedings before the
Rumours exist that the deceased was not kept clean while in hospital, and some correspondence has taken place in the local Presn, and the necessity of an investigation into the management of hospital affairs, hence the reason of my submitting the eise. I do not think any good could be obtained by ex- huming the body, but if thought desirable I could institute a magisterial inquiry. Awaiting your instructions in the case, I have, &c,

( igd.) JOHN DUNSHEA, Constable, Lochinvar.. To the Superintendent of Poliee, West Maitland.
In connexion with the foregoing, I may mention that Mrs. M'Cormack called upon me at the Council Chamhers on 5th Noy. last, and made a statement in presence of one^ of'
our Aldermen, and a member of the Hospital - Committee, to the effect that a Constable from Lochinvar had called upon her, and made enquiries respecting the cause of her
fjon's death. She informed him that he was . subject to fits, during one of which he fell
into the fire, and was so severely burned that.^
he had to be removed to the Maitland Hos-
In reply to his enquiries as to the treatment her son received whilst in the Hospital, she Btated that he was well and kindly treated by the Doctor, Miss Morrow, and all connected with the place ; and that his clergyman visited,
him every day. She further stated that she " remained in the Institution with her son. nearly all the time he was there, and during her absence her daughter was allowed to re-
main with him.
Mrs. M'Cormack gave us a grateful assur-
ance of her extreme satisfaction of the con- duct of Mr. G-orrick, and all the Staff of the Hospital, to herself and her son ; and con- cluded by saying that her son often remarked that there could not be a better place than the Maitland Hospital.
THOMAS HUGHES, Secretary. River Bank Protection
A meeting of the above committee was held in that Council Cnambers, High-street, West Maitland, on Thursday evening. There were present-Messrs. J. J Riley (in the chair), Jacob Gorrick, W. H. Mullen, W. Bussell, J. hu Falkiner, and Thomas Hughes, Secretary. The Secretary read the minutes of the previous meeting, and they were confirmed.
The Secretary read the letter from the Public Works Department, which we have already pub- lished, to the tffvet that as soon as the ¿7000 baa been paid to the credit of the Colonial Treasurer the work will be commenced. He also stated that he had written to the insurance companies, and the S}dney gentlemen as ins'ructed. He had not written to the local persons, a list of which had been prepared at the last meeting, as the chairman had informed him that a great many of the persons oa the list had already been waited upon. The Secre- tary further expiai-ed that he had only written to the insurance companies within the last few days, having been unwell, and that no replies had yet been
The Chairman pointed out a large number o£ gentlemen on the list who had already been solicited. It was arranged that the list should again be gone tbriu^h aud one prepared of those who had not yet been waited upon, so thit the gentlemen appointed could wait upon them without delay.
No further sums had bean promised since the last meeting, the amount now promiced is ¿13,728 ; which, leaves £272 to be still collected. Against this sum, there is £ HO promised conditionally which would briDg the amount required down to £132.-Since the last moetiDg the Treasurer had received Mr. Peter Green's cheque for £5, The amount already paid into the bank to the credit of the fund is £308.
A discussion ensued with respect to the desirable- ness of at once calling in the amounts promised. It was pointed out that the letter from the Works De- partment was very definite, and that the money pro- mises should be c llected at once so that the work might be commenced. It was pointed out that the committee lost a great deal of time in collecting pro- mised and amounts, and that th» public should at once hand in their cheques when called upon, or send them to the Treasurer. Eventually it was de- cided upon the motion of Mr. Mullen, seconded by Mr.Falkiner, "That Mr. Riley and Mr. G jrrick should call upon all persone who had promised subscrip- tions in High-street, and collect tlii amounts." It was pointed out that this work would not interfere with that nppointed for Messrs. Falkiner and Grif- fiths at the previous meeting-the waiting upon those who h'.ve not yet been appealed to,
Those who have promised subscriptions and have not paid them will have an opportunity of paying them over early next week, when Messrs. Riley and Gorrick woit upon them. They would lighten the labours of those gentlemen if they have made pre- parations for paying the amoints when called upon.
The meeting then adjourned till next Thursday night, at eight, for the purpose of receiving the report
of the collectors and other business.
