Wyalong G-oldflelds. Wyalong, Thursday. Several tresh discoveries are repor ted at Wyalong goldfield; and the present proved claims are also opening up very well, disclosing solid and im proving bodieB of stone. ? These de velopments are considered to have firmly established the value of the field sufficiently to recommend it to investors as a suitable field for enter, prise hitherto too long delayed. Though the field has been established over tour months only one Bmall 15 head plant is now at work (Gpugh nnd Turlacds), which is quite unable to cope, with even a quarter of the output the field is now capable of producing.

Carnot was a king among men — the iend of a nroud. inmetu ou8, but chiralrousp eople.

Wise asked leave to withdraw pro ceedings, as the points . reserved were points which could not be' argued in view of the fact that the ' jury found by their verdict that prisoner was pre sent and assisted at tbe murder. Judge Windeyer said he thought coun sel had taken the only proper course open under the circumstances, for it was quite clear on the finding of the jury that CnmminB was actually pre sent at the murder. The points re served were unarguable, and it waa therefore unnecessary for the Court to go further into tbe ' case. . He might say, however, they were nil of the oninion that the direction of His Honor in this case was altogether cor rect. If-a number of persons ent...
