A man named M'Carron and his daughter, who reside at Nathalia, a post town of Broken Creek (Victoria), have been arrested on a charge of having murdered the illegitimate child of the latter. It is believed that the child is tho fourth victim at the hands of the accused. The details of this murder are said to be of a shocking nature.
Mr Dcasy, one of the Irish delegates, recently accused tho postal authorities of tampering with valuable letters addressed to him. The New South Wales Government made strict inquiries, but tho matter is involved in mystery. It has now transpired that the mission of Mr Deasy was one in connection with matrimony as well as political, and that the mother of the lady to whom he was engaged, who viewed the match "with some degree of mistrust, admits having opened letters addressed to her daughter, thus exonerating officials. The establishment of a coal trust at Newcastle, with a capital of L 3,000,000, is projected. The object of the movement is to combine with the proprietors of the leading mines to maintain the present price of coal.
