NEW SOUTH WALES
Sydnby, November 19. The fruit crop at Bombala has been destroyed by frosts. The herbage is dried up and the river has ceased running at Inverell. The . squatters have suffered heavy losses. A splendid supply of artesian water has been struck on Werribee station, near Burke, giving 356,000 gallons per diem. Sir H. Parkes denies the statement published m Melbourne that New South Wales is m favor of combining with Canada and Britain for a complete survey of the route of the Pacific cable. He says that while he has no objection to confer with the Victorian and Canadian Governments, he certainly would not express an opinion m writing at the present juncture. Private intelligence shows that Dr. Drummond, who was arrested at Colombo on a charge of larceny, did not poison himself as at first reported. Death was due to excitement at his arrest, causing failure of the heart's action.
