Ws are informed that we have, unintentionally, done injustice in the topic under this head last week to Mr. Selfe, the Magistrate presiding at the Thames Police Court, on the examination of Mullins for the murder of Mrs. Emslcy. The evidence of the witness Rowland was only taken as to the actual conversation between him and the prisoner, and Mr. Selfc interfered, during the evidence of Inspector Thornton, to prevent his giving an opinion, and confined the testimony received as to the facts. And when the evidence of the labourer, who was to under- take to say, according to Mr. Wontner's opinion, that Mullins took him for a policeman in plain clothes, the witness was only allowed to describe Mullins' appearance.
