CASE OF DR. FIASCHI.
Sydney, May 6.
In "The Advertiser" of Friday appeared the correspondence which took place be- tween Dr. Fiaschi and the Superior-Gene- ral of St. Vincent's Private Hospital, in which the doctor was requested and agreed to withdraw from all professional connec- tion with the institution.
"The reason for it," said Dr. Fiaschi, "I can't surmise any other than this. My son died last week, and was buried in Sydney. The service was in St. James' Church, and prayers were afterwards read at the grave by the Rev. Sidney Marston, rector of St. James. This is the only thing that I can think of that they could have taken offence at. But my son was christened and con- firmed and married in the Church of Eng- land. He married a Church of England lady, so that I don't see how they could have thought he would be buried as Catholic."
The Presbyterian Assembly, at a private sitting last night, in view of the facts pub- lished by the press, unanimously con- demned the spirit shown against Dr.
Fiaschi. The Moderator of the Assembly was instructed to convey to Dr. Fiaschi the Assembly's sympathy with him in his troubles. The Rev, Dr. Dill Macky, refer- ring to this resolution, said it had been intended to express the Assembly's sym- pathy by means of a letter, and he hoped official action had been taken.
The Moderator (the Right Rev. Robert Jackson) said that on behalf of the Assem- bly he would write to Dr. Fiaschi.
