A Thief Captured. - Yesterday, a man was apprehended near the Bank of New South Wales, under the following circumstances. It appeared that he had just returned from the Diggings with a considerable sum of money, which he had obtained by successfully "fossick- ing" in another main's pocket. The robbed one, not thinking exactly with Iago, that in losing   his purse he lost merely " trash," followed the thief, and was fortunate enough to overtake him in town before he had had time to get rid of his ill acquired wealth. The fellow will be brought up for examination at the City Police Court, this morning.

Invalidity or Ships' Articles -We learn that it is the intention of a few masters of vessels to convino a meeting, fo- the purposo of taking into consideration the difficulty which has mi'en with respect to the supposed invalidity of ships' articles, on the gr. und of the uncertainty in the description of the voyage. Ab it is understood thst the great majority of the ship«' articles in harbour, aro in a similar con iii i >n to those of tho Ncrbudda, and New Liverpool, it is feared that considerable inconvenience and kss will bo sustained by the owners of vessels, unless some energetic measures be immediately adopted to

o untoiact tho-evil. Wo have tn.t hcurd the nature of the resolutions to he brought 1 eforo the nicoling, nor what measures ure contemplated to obviate the (lilli u'ty eomploined of, but there cm be no doubt from the deep intcrrst which is felt in tha matior. that tho meeting if got up with energy, will b.) well attended. Tt is also rumo'ired that the teamen contemplate holding a meeting about the san.e time, for the purp. so we presumo, of adopting measures to protect tl.eir own interests, in tho event of any ex- traordinary steps being taken by the maslers. -Empire.

Blacks and Chinese -The aborigines havo, again commenced hostilities in lh:s distiict. A spooi.il messenger arrived last night from the Upper Burnett, to report the death of Mr Ado'phns H Trevethan, one ( f the m st cxlen sivi! flockowners in the dislr'ct. It appears that on Monday last tho Micks appe-Tcd upon the stnlion in numhcis, killed two Chinamen, "und dr ive u>iay 170U sheep. Befoio Mr Trevethan was aware of this, they marched on tho head station, g'.m:: 500 Btrong, and with loud vnicos and gesticulation, demanded that Mrs Thoms, n the wife ol'the ovo:seer, should be given up to them. On thisMr Tievethan ran out of his hut, unarmed, to hold a parley. Ho was in the act of picking up some tcbice o ho had given thom,, which tliey throw willi vengeance to the ground wh n ho was «pealed in several places. 'The unfortunate man succeeded in getfing back to h is hut, where ho expired iu about two hours. The blacks then diove away the whole of the rams with the rest of the sheep. The station is tho same as that on which Mr Stn et was killed somo months ago. Only last shearing the blacks bailed up all the shearers, .and took the whole of their blankets, tea, sugar, quait end pint potB, and clothing away, tho mon not being able to resist for want of arms and ¡immutiiti m.
