ceedings of the 7th inst., and published in to-
day's Argus, it is stated that a Henry Schreiber
had been robbed of £50 by Mary Anne Baynton,
and that the prosecutor did not appear. As
there is, to my certain knowledge, no other person
in the colony with the same name, I beg to state
the said prosecutor, and that I never had occasion

SUICIDE AT CARNGHAM.— A melancholy sui-
cide occurred on the 6th inst. A married woman
named Fenton was missing, and, upon search
being made, was found by the police in a wate-
hole 6ft. deep. It appears deceased had been for
some time laid up with colonial fever, which, it is
thought, preyed upon her mind, as no other cause
for the act can be conceived. She was a very
quiet respectable young woman. Her husband
at the time of the occurrence was on the night
shift at a claim.— Ballarat Times.
CASES OF STICKING-UP OCCUR NIGHTLY ; is
fact, it is quite dangerous to walk alone in any of
the unfrequented parts of the diggings. The
journey between Old and New Inglewood is at-
tended with considerable risk, especially after
the closing of the theatre. On Saturday evening
a man came from Thompson's Gully to dispose of
a small quantity of gold, amounting to £9 worth.
On his journey home, he was eased of his money
near the puddling-machine. This spot is the
favourite resort of the robbers, the scrub being
very dense, and the road having a considerable
wind in it, so that it is impossible to see
but for a very short distance, especially
at night ; a more cut-throat place it is impos-
sible to imagine. A man might be robbed and
murdered, and no one the wiser. It is high time
the authorities cleared a good wide road between
the two townships ; or, at all events, stationed a
patrol after dark. Between the washing place
and Commercial-street things are no better. A
regular look-out is kept for the miners returning
of an evening with the proceeds of their day's
washing. On Saturday night as a drayman was
returning from Tarnagulla, after taking a load
of cement to the crushing-mill, he was robbed of
his watch by some miscreants ; his money he had
fortunately stowed away, and, luckily for him
escaped the notice of the robbers.— Maryborough
