As we expected last week, the evidence of Mrs. Janman

against Groves, for the murder of the bandsman, APDonnell, has com- pletely broken down, and fifteen out of the seventeen on the coroner's jury expressed their opinion "that the woman Jamnan had committed wilful and corrupt perjury, and should be pro- secuted by the Government." We trust the advice of the jury will be followed. We do not understand why perjury, aimed at the life of a fellow-creature, as this, if perjury, was, should not be. punished as severely as the worst form of murder. It iiintent to murder, aggravated by the worst and meanest form of theft.
