MATE V. NUGENT. (Prom the WYagga W'agga .Express.) ON Thursday, April 8, after a lengthened trial in our assize court, the great free-selection osse of Mate v.-Nugent was brought to 'a conclu sion before Mr. Justice Cheeke and a jury, of, four, by a verdict' for the plaintiff. The difficulties between the parties to the' suit arose'in the :following way :-In the year 1854 Mr.- Mate, the plaintiff, put in an appli cation, under the orders in council, for a: pre., emptive claim to 040 acres of land upon his run at Oberne, on the Taroitta Creek.

THE TICHBORNE HEIR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 29 April 1869
THE TIUHBORNE HEIR. By the arrival of the Pacifio mail, we learn that the West Coast Mail has been informed that the commissioners on the Tichborne case intend returning to England on the 17th instant. It is stated that Sir Roger Tichborne, baronet-or, at all events, the person claiming to be such-disembarked at Monte Video, on route for Chili, via the Cordilleras; and as he has not yet arrived, his counsel is apprehensive for his safety, more especially as the border provinces are in a very unsettled state. " A friend assures us," says the Star, "that Sir Roger left Rosario in company with Major Rickards, the Heon. Constable Maxwell, and Captain Burton, in quest of a mine of fabulous wealth in the Indian territory, and he sup poses that Sir Roger has either been sacri ficed by the Indians or that he has succeeded in establishing his title to the mine, and prefers that to the trouble and annoyance attending .the vindication of his claim to the Tichborne baronetcy."

THE MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 29 April 1869
THE MAIL SERVICE. The news last month of the sudden arrest of the Panama service took everybody by surprise, since it was thought the company would have struggled on a year or two longer, or until some new and more satisfac tory arrangements could have been made in concert with the imperial government. That dream has now, however, been rudely dispelled, and although sincere regret is felt at the non-success of this " gallant attempt to maintain the ascendancy of English enterprise in the Pacific," it is a source of satisfaction to know that the ground is now cleared for the organisation of a service suitable to the requirements alike of the colonies and of the mother-country. Some felw letters on the subject have appeared in the Times, but they offer no new suggestions. They are but a recapitulation to English readers of the exhaustive recommendations already made known to the colonial commu nities in the columns of the colonial news papers. The initiative must come from) Melbourne ...
