I MURDERED BY NATIVES. EIGHT PEQPLE KILLED IN AUSTRALIA. Some time ago it was reported from Port Darwen, Australia, that a Mr. Bradshaw, the owner of a Victoria River station, and others had been murdered by natives, whom they were con- veying as prisoners down the river in a steam launch. Mr. Bradshaw, it was stated, had, against the advice of others, taken fetters off the native prisoners, who took advantage of the opportunity to murder him, with three other whites and four native employees. The report, which was from a native source, was at first discredited, but later advices confirm it. A detachment of police, which was despatched to the scene of the disaster, has found the launch, which is spattered all over with bloodstains, and a body, supposed to be that of Mr. Bradshaw, has been found on the shore. The bodies of the other victims have not yet been discovered. Eight natives were subsequently arrested, but six of them escaped after a desperate struggle.
