News and Notes. If what we hear be correct, the death of the late Mr John Gibbs was attended with most distressing circumstances. Our information is to the effect that the deceased, who had been ill of colonial fever, but had recovered so as to be able to move about, was taking a short walk on Saturday forenoon in the vicinity of his residence, when one of his creditors came up to him and demanded a settlement of his account. The reply not being deemed satisfactory, poor Mr Gibbs was threatened with arrest and confinement in gaol, and a constable was talked of being called in. This harsh conduct had such an effect on the deceased that on reaching his house he was obliged to be put to bed, where he became delirious, and died in two or three hours after the cruel interview. If this be correct, we do not envy the feelings of the man whose harsh and thoughtless conduct brought the life of a fellow man to so untimely an end.[3]


THE Friends of the late Mr. JOHN JAMES GIBBS are respectfully invited to follow his remains to the place of interment, the Melbourne General Cemetery. The funeral will leave the residence of his father, Mr. John Gibbs, 31 Donald-street, College-lawn, Prahran, THIS DAY (Friday, 25th inst.), at 11 o'clock a.m.[4]
