MISCELLANEOUS. There have been terrible crimes committed in the country parts no doubt, but the recent disclosures in Sydney relative to what is termed the " Bourke-street &nbsp; Tragedy," surpass in loathsomeness of detail anything wo have heard or read in tale or history for many years. A woman is beset by a number of rowdies and boys in ono of the shady slums of low Woolloomooloo, maltreated, and subjected t^ such inhuman and shocking indignitios that when found and conveyed to the hospital sho dies exhausted and in anguish before the promptest medical skill could be applied. The circumstances are too revolting to be recapitulated except before a jury; nor should we have alluded to the subject at all were it not that the causes of such depra vity in a section of the city youth avo partly attributed by a seotion of the press to the defect in our public school system. That system may be tinged with all the ungodli ness its opponents ascribe to it; it is cer tainly not a per...
