ICatters at Broken Bill. [BY EIJSCTEIC TELEGEATH.] FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. BROKEN HILL, THURSDAY. The labor loaders at Broken Hill are adopting n different tone in addressing tiie men. They are insinuating that violence will be resorted to in order to prevent the mines being worked. Mr. Slcatli suggests that the Broken Hill miners should be well armed and drilled.

DIED IN THE BUSH. From Jundah we hear that Mr. James Gough, landlord of a Jundah hotel, has been missing for some time. One of the search parties who were out succeeded in finding his saddle and some rations tied on a tree, also his boots on the bank of a lagoon on Evengy Station.

ALPHA ITEMS. ODB correspondent writes under date Stu September as follows :-Tho town was thrown into a great state of excitement on thc evening of tile 21st August, when it became known that Salisbury, wno was arrested on a charge of false pretences, had made his escape from the gaol. Tlie police made a very ardent search, but did not meet with any success until the morning of the 5th instant, when, on arising from their virtuous couch, they found their man taking it quite comfortably on the Court Bouse verandah, and lost no time in securing him. On Tuesuay evening the Rev. C. Briggs held a service of song and coffee supper in the school room. The audience, I believe, was one of tho largest ever seen in Alpha. The choir, con sisting of Mesdames Briggs, Crossan, Freeman, Davison and Miss Jacobsen, Messrs. C. Briggs, Peel, Tliomas, White and George, rendered then' pieces very well. Great credit is due to Mr. Georgo, the leader of thc choir, and also to Mr. Briggs, for tho very able ma...

TRADESMEN'S BALL. A vKnv pleasant evening was spent at Banckc's Hall, Barcaldine, by those who at tended the ball in aid of thc funds of the Odd fellows' Band. There were some forty couples present, and to Mr. Chandler's excellent music on thc piano, assisted at intervals by members of thc band, there was nothing left to bc de sired. The materials for supper were wholly provided hy thc bandsmen, their sweethearts, and wives, and no little trouble was spent in providing a table in advance of the general run of ball suppers. Everything was toothsome and tempting, and, although ample justice was done at midnight, there was sufficient for again refreshing tho inner man at 3 a.m. Thc belle was generally conceded to be a young lady newly arrived in the district. Mr. Jacob Schnieder, as usual, was an efficient M.C. We must compliment Mr. Banckc upon the internal appearance of the hall ; the building has been newly painted, and will now compare favor ably with public halls in other centres....
