The Clarkes were lodged in Braidwood gaol yesterday, and piaced in irons. The out- law is slightly wounded in the back : John Clarke— severely—flesh wound. Names of police party :—Senior constable Wright, constables Walsh, Egan, Wright, and William Lenehan ; tracker Sir Watkin. Walsh is very slightly wounded—slight flesh wound. The tracker is very badly hit, and is likely to lose his left arm. This party of police were watching a hut all night. About daybreak the two Clarkes came out to look for their horses. The police and they exchanged several shots, when they retired into the hut. The firing was kept up for some time. The police party were not strong enough to dislodge them. Constable Walsh went to Ballalaba for assistance, the rest guarding the hut. Sergeant Byrne with police then started immediately, and on ar- rival, about 1 p.m., all were about to rush the hut, when the two Clarkes came out unarmed and surrendered." These desperadoes will be brought down in charge of a strong escort to Sydney in a few days, to take their trial for some of the crimes which have rendered their names
