The only incident worth relating is that of a blackfellow being bitten by a brown snake. The blackfellow, whose name is Spenser, is in the employ of Sergeant Johnson, It appears that Spencer went out on Friday morning last to look for the hobbled horses, and while trying to catch one, be was bitten by a brown snake above the ankle.

Vita tine Merit mart at. BLACKALL, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7. THE defeat of the Conservative party in England appears to have been altogether unexpected. The brilliant achievements of Lord BEAOOHSFIBLD and his colleagues during the troublous tiroes which Europe bas witnessed of late years seemed to create for the Government a claim upon the continued support of the people, but the result of the elections proves that public opinion has changed, and that the Ministerial policy is not so popular as was /anticipated. Perhaps, however, the real reason of the success of the Liberal party is to be traced to that constant desire for novelty and change which is characteristic of the majority of our countrymen, and perliaps also to a general feeling that it is unwise to per mit a party to retain for too long a period the reins of Government. We know by the history of the past that the greatest and boldest political leaders of the day are often regarded with distrust and disfavor even when most succe...
