Sydney. Jane 24
Sir H. Parkes absolutely denies that Government msde extracts from M. Pasteur's letters, as alleged by his agents, MM. Germ on t and Loir, since their return to France.
Sydney, June 25. Another desperate affray took place this morning between the police and some burglars. It appears that at an early hour this morning Constable Slater surprised a burglar attempting to force an entrance into the residence of Mr Justice Stephens. The constable closed with the man, and a desperate struggle took place. Two accomplices of the burglar came to the rescue of their mate, and fired twice at Constable Slatoft both shots taking effect m the shoulder. This caused the constable to relax his hold of his man, who with his accomplices, made off, and has not yet been captured. The constable is m a serious condition.
