Diamond Discovery. THE FIND DEFINITELY LOCATED. It will be remembered, that recently qiiitc a stir was created in Perth by the production of two diamonds by two' 'unknown' prospec tors, the Government Geologist, to whom they ? were referred, declaring them to be of great value. The fiuders then alleged that they had unearthed them somewhere in the Nor' -West, but declined to give any particulars as to the locality until such time as they had secured the right on the ground Now we learn that these two men arc not the only ones who have been successful in their search for the precious gems, but others have found diamonds — not one or two, but several — on the Ngullagine in the very heart of tho goldfields.

It was there that Brookes Bros, obtained theirs, and so far is the only known place in the district where diamonds are known to exist. Mr Frodk. F. Groom, who has had some experie...

A telegram has been received from the South Australian police, stating that a ' millionaire ' is wanted by the Adelaide detectives on several charges of forgery and uttering. The police so far have no idea how many valueless cheques were circulated, but they do not think that any one person will bo a loser, to a great extent, as the; traveller did not confine himself to one or two hotels, for he visited neariy every hotel of importance in the city and town. The ladies who accompanied him on his driving excursions are naturally very much aunoyed at the facts of the case, and it is har-dly a safe thing to mentiqn in their hearing anything about their ' ar-istocr-atio. acquaintance.' Detective Charles over hauled Cummings' portmanteau at the Royal Hotel, where he put up during his ...
