Another desperate affray took place in Sydney yesterday morning between the police and burglars. At an early hour Constable Slater surprised a burglar attempting to force an entrance into the residence of Mr .Justice Stephens. The constable closed wilh the mail, and a struggle took place. Two accomplices of the burglar came to the rescue of the latter, and fired twice at Constable Slater, both shots taking effect in the shoulder. This caused the constable to relax his hold of his man, who, with his accomplices, made eff, and has not yet been captured. The constable is in a serious condition.
