YASS.

FIVE armed bushrangers have been infesting  

the Yass district for the last two months;

they have robbed successively drays, horse-   men, and stations, and even had the temerity   to bail up, and rob of a considerable sum, Mr.     Anidrews, the postmaster and innkeeper at

Gundagai, and although the leader was wounded by one of his neighbours who came

to the rescue, they got off wit their booty.

Within the last few days they took a horse- man off the road into the bush to rob him, but

he seeing n chance of escape galloped off,    

when they fired three shots at him, but fortu-

nately without effect. Our spirited Commis-     sioner Bickham was with his mounted police  

and black fellow, on their track within five

hours, and it is hoped he will succeed in cap- taring them. What protection will the set-

tlers have if this force is disbanded now that   the Police Magistrate's salary is disallowed?   for the constabulary generally manage to let

the bushrangers escape after the mounted     police have taken them.
