MURDEROUS OUTRAGE IN SARAWAK,

MURDEROUS OUTRAGE IN SARAWAK, There has lately occurred an fineute in Sarawak which, says the Straits Tinn, tends to show how all Europeans there live with their lives in their hands, and know not when they may he called upon to face sudden death. The following are authentic particulars furnished by the Sarawak govern- ment ;— On the 28th November, the Mukah fort, under charge of the resident, Mr. Rodway, was surprised by a party of six convicts (one Chinaman and five Malays) who were under sentence of imprisonment for trivial offences. The resident and Mr. Sinclair were walking on the beach, distant about a mile from the fort at the time the attack took place, and on their return found the fort in the hands of these miscreants who had killed the sentry, loaded the arms, fastened the doors, and we regret to state that the Chinaman among them most brutally murdered Mr. Bain, who was lying sick in the resident's apartments. Before assistance could arrive, however, the rascals made off at night after holding the fort for a few hours. The inhabitants pursued them, killed four (including the murderer of Air. Bain) out of the six, recovered the treasure, about 1,000 dols., and everything was in order again with arms complete. The two living run- aways are being pursued in all directions, and will, in all probability, be brought in, dead or alive, in a day or two. The Chinaman, it appears, was in debt to Mr. Bain, and on a previous occasion, while being sued, had used threatening language to the deceased. Mr. Bain (late engineer of the Borneo Company) had engaged for some time in mercantile affairs in the Uj a river, distant 15 miles from Mukah, and was unusually popular with the native community.
