|Date occurred or began||May 2, 1848|
|Date ended||May 11, 1848|
On the 2nd May Daniel Herein, a labouring man, from the neighbourhood of Willunga, was conveyed to the jail in such a confirmed state of lunacy as to render it necessary to lash him to the dray. He had previously threatened the life of one of the Catholic clergy, and exhibited other proofs of decided insanity. He died on the 11th instant, and an inquest was held on the following day, when the jury returned a verdict, " Died by the Visitation of God.” His remains were interred in the Catholic Cemetery, on Sunday last.
