INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. » NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, August 27. A collision between the Austrian cruiser Panther and H.M.S. Chal lenger was narrowly averted yester day. The Panther slipped her moor ings at Farm Cove to leave port for Brisbane, but for some unexplained reason she steamed right for the Challenger. The foreign craiser got alarmingly near to the British war ship, when by reversing her engines and dropping her anchors she was pulled up. There was great excite ment on board both vessels, for as the Panther was fitted with a ram capable of working great destruction the consequences -would have been serious in the event of a collision. In the hurry of letting go the anchors the chains were permitted to foul. A party of bluejackets and divers were ordered from* Garden Island to the Panther's assistance, and the task of disentangling the chains was found to be a difficult one. It was not till early afternoon that the Panther cleared the Heads. A case of poisoning under nnusual circ...

ALLEGED NATIVE MURDEBS. PRISONERS BEFORE THE MARBLE BAR COURT. PEBTH, August 24. The aboriginal natives Monkey and Toby -were before tbe Marble Bar police court again to-day on a charge of murdering certain persons un known. Tbe principal evidence given was that of Dr. Durack, who stated that be made an examination of tbe remains of one person. They were those of a middle-aged Australian aboriginal native, and had probably been in the gronnd a few years. The other remains were very incomplete, many bones being missing and others white ant eaten. They were those of a very old person, an Australian aboriginal, and the cause of death was most probably old age. They bad been buried many years. The prosecution asked for a remand, bat the bench refused to grant the appli cation and the prisoners were dis charged. Very little interest was evinced in the case from the start, and there are no more charges against the natives, who will probably be taken to Nullagine and there released.
