MINING FATALITY.

    A report from Moruya states that Gordon and party who, for the past five months have been prospecting on the Deua River, near Bendithera, lately shifted into German Creek, which runs into the same river. Yesterday Robert Woods who, with his father, belonged to the party, was working in some old ground when suddenly the ground gave away, completely covering him. He must have died instantly, as when the earth was removed the body was quite rigid.

SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST A BOY.

    A youth named Peter Brown, aged 15 years 11 months, was committed for trial from the Water Police Court this afternoon, on a charge of assaulting a girl aged 10 years and 4 months with intent.
