An armed bushranger stuck up a number of persons near Dubbo, aud three were bound and robbed. A cabman who had been stuck up procured a revolver and pursued the ruffian. While lying in wait the police came up, and in the dark, the cabman being mistaken for the bushranger, Subinspector Cameron shot him in the shoulder. The wound is believed to be serious. The bushranger is still at large. The fragmentary nature of the reports of a lecture on the London strike, delivered at Ballarat by Archdeacon Julius, led to some misapprehension of his meaning. “As an old Londoner,” says the rev. gentleman, “1 am deeply interested in the condition of the poor, and feel strongly the wrongs which they have suffered through neglect, injustice, and greed. I expressed my sense of admiration at their power of selfrestraint and forbearance, especially when their poverty is compared with the overflowing wealth and luxury around them.” Archdeacon Julius goes on to say that he did not justify violence, which seems to have been the sense in which his remarks were taken in some quarters. He is fully aware that any outbreak on the part of the poor will only serve to intensify and prolong their misery.
