From the I fact that 110 traces of several incombustible ; articles were found among tlie debris, it is ? conjectured that the tent had been roblied ; by some swagmau, who, to conceal his depre dations, added incendiarism to his original ' crime to destroy the traceB thereof. There 1 is another tent, not far from the one de- | stroyed, the inmates of which observed a ! bright glare about 4 a.m. ou Wednesday, but thinking it was only the cook of the party putting on a tire larger than usual, they took 110 further notice, and did not become aware of the true state of things till, 011 turning out, they saw the smouldering remains of what had been Martin's hut.

No title [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 April 1879

The visit of Mr. Lalok, which opened so full of promise, has turned out dis astrously, not only as far as his mission was concerned, but also in the impres sions which the Commissioner of Cus toms lias left behind him. Tlie fatted calf, the ring, and the robe were, on his arrival, all placed at his disposal as fitting tributes to the representative of A ustralia's prodigal. But Mr. Lalok, drawing closely around him the homely robe of honest democracy, glared Pro tection at his Free Trade entertainers. He feared them, especially when they came healing gifts. So the result is that not only are we still to have customs on the border, but Mr. Lalor reproaches the representatives of the colony with want of candour, while Sir Hesry Parkes retorts that Mr. Lalor has distorted the meaning of his words. Sir Henry Pahkes very properly pointed out to the Victorian Commissioner of Customs that there was 110 tax oil stock crossing intoNew South Wales, so that in the question of indemnity that pa...

THE NEW GOVERNOR OF NEW SOUTH WALES. Among other colonial subjects which excite interest just now is the appoint ment of Lord Augustus Loftus as Governor of New South Wales. Tlie curimis thing is that the Governorship of this colony was first offered to Lord Dufierin, but declined by him, and that now Lord A. Loftus has been induced tr, 111,1 l.-p fn,.flioimi.„loi-av_r-.,nnj;nn ? ? ? 'J '' va-vo.ia,u.uii Viceroy at St. Petersburg and to go to New South Wales himself. If the secret history of this transaction could be told it would make an amusing chapter of contemporary history. Lord Dufterin, who is a Liberal peer, is a very eloquent speaker, and enjoys great personal popularity. The Government, therefore, were naturally very anxious to keep him in official harness, and thus prevent him from co-operating with Lord Granville in the House of Lords. It was thought in the first instance that he would be sent to Constantinople, and Sir Henry Layard was very anxious to be superseded and ...
