LATbST FROM EUROPE [per reutbr’s agency.] Unhappy Ireland. London, June 9. The intelligence to hand from Ireland is again indicating a serious increase in the number of agrarian outrages in the western district. Yesterday one farmer was murdered, and two others seriously wounded. The causes of the outrages are not definitely known, and the assailants are still at large. Wheat and Wool. The total quantity of wheat afloat for Great Britain is 2,040,000 quarters, being 10,000 quarters more than the amount afloat last week. At to-day’s wool auction 10,800 bales were offered. A firm and active demand was again experienced. Obituary. Obituary.—Mr John Scott-Russell, the well-known engineer and naval architect, aged 74. The Colonist’s Progress. London, June 10. Telegrams from Belgium state that Sir Henry Parkes has visited other towns in that country, and has received receptions at each place.

A Misunderstanding. The cricket match Australia v. Nottingham was resumed to-day at Nottingham. The weather was fine, but the wicket was heavy, owing to the rain which fell on the day previous. The attendance of spectators was enormous. The Home team resumed their first innings, which closed for a total of no runs, as against 142 of the Australians. The latter then went in for their second innings, and were all disposed of for 106 runs, Connor being highest scorer with 39 (caught). When time was called the Notts eleven had scored 12 runs for the loss of one wicket. The match was consequently drawn, the Home team requiring 127 runs to win. A misunderstanding occurred during the progress of the play to-day, owing to the accidental exclusion of some of the Australians from the luncheon tent. Murdoch twice refused to accept the apologies of the Nottingham committee for the occurrence.

The Turkish Commission. Alexandria, June 9. Dervish Pasha and the other members of the Turkish mission in Egypt, have been received by the Khedive. At the interviews which have taken place Dervish Pasha has spoken firmly with regard to the intention of the Porte in reference to a settlement of the present crisis in Egypt, but has not yet indicated whether any further steps will be taken.
