    TICKETS-OF-LEAVE CANCELLED.—The following prisoners of the Crown have had their tickets-of-leave cancelled for the reasons stated against their respective names:—

    John Madigan, per Java, 1833, for immoral and other disorderly conduct, Queanbeyan Bench.

    ASSAULT.—A person named Murphy, residing in Dixon-street, entertained some friends at his house on Thursday evening; shortly after midnight a stone was thrown at the door, which led Murphy and his friends so see who was there. No sooner had they opened the door then they were attacked and severely beaten by four, men armed with palings; and one of them, named McVeigh, had his leg broken. Constables Lowe and Cowley were on the spot a few minutes after the affray, but the assailants had made off. Their names are not known, but Murphy says he could identify if he were to see them again.
