SYDMNEY. Buitttt?N?o Ects-The Rtibicon Is past -and human blood is now shed by one of the most lawless gaugs of busb rangers that ever inlested the Hunter. Blood, that cries aloud for retribut:on at the hands of our vacillating govern. ment. Blood-yes, blood, the first of: a long list which it is anticipated,. will mark the career of the Flunter's Itiver lushrangers. My last letter feebly narrated the career of this gang at the Wollombi; of their assault on the late cotistable M'Dougal, and the murder ous attack on. one of Mr. Crawford's men ; of their rencontre at the Red house. and other particulars of mis. deeds. This, though not so full of partiiculars, will be more full of horror. It appears that, on leaving the Wol lombi, they were joined by six others, thus making their number ten, when they proceeded to Scone, simnulta. neously attacking the Inn of Mr. Chivers and the stores of Mli. Thomas Dangar; their approach was however observed by a young man, clerk to Mr. Dnangar, name...

(Morning Chiotricle, Octiber S.) Our P'aria corspondent writes that M. Thiers has ulready proposed and ii sistcd, in the Council, on a .declara. tions of war, on sending troops to the lthy.le, and also to Alexandria, in des uiite of the blockade. On these ques tions M, Thiers was in the minority. On Monday or 'luesday similar propo sals will no dodbtrbe madle, ai:compa nied with offers of resignation. So hat, whatever be the result, the moment is critical. We stated yesterday that decisive war measures, could not be taken by the French Cabinet, without an im mediate split therein, and the with. tlrawal of three or four Ministers. WVe have but to peruse: the articles of the Constitutionnel and the Journal des Debats of Sunday to be convioced of tilhe truth. The Journal des Debn-ts, the organ of the Court, of the Conservativas, and of the peace pinty, though not of paix a tout prix, declares that the events of Beyrout, however serious, we.o still nothing more thban the fore seen conse...
