IMPORTANT TO JURORS.-On the first of next month i provision in a recent Act of Parliament (SO and 31. Vict., c. 35) will take effect, under which jurors both in civil and criminal cases, who object to be sworn on religious grounds, can take an affirmation or make a de- claration in lieu of an oath, which is to have the same- consequence as being sworn. 4 BUSHRANGING IN NEW SOUTH W ALES.-Some sta- tistics which have lately been published of bushranginp in New South Wales during the last few years show to what an extent this institution has grown in that colony. Since the month of June, a period of three years, eleven members of the police have been shot dead by bushrangers and sixteen wounded by fire-arms iu at- tempts to capture them. Fifteen other persons have- also been shot at and wounded by bushrangers in the last four years. It appears, however, that sooner or later all the gangs come to grief, for of the most no. torious marauders during the past five years three had been executed, two were at the time under sentence of death, seven had been shot dead, one is supposed to have. been muraered by felons, and eight were undergoing lorig terms of imprisonment. A return of offences commuted ♦J A ?aS J c (outlawed 31st Mav, 1866) shows that he has forty-five offences, such as horse stealing, robbery under arms, shooting, and murder, mo jfd against him. The number registered against his brother John Clarke is twenty.eight. The worst feature, how- ever is the secret, aid evidently afforded to the robbers by the lower orders of the up-country population, low- grog-shop keepers, ostlers, pedlars, and some others of a grade who ought to be above suspicion.— Australian and A ew Zealand Gazette. MEAT BY RAILWAY.- We gave recently a descri;.tio» ofa new patent railway car, called the 'Lyman Rein- gerating Cat, constructed for the purpose of transporting slaughtered beef and other meats long distances in ail kinds of weather, and preserving the same fresh and pure as when ifrst killed. The first of these cars arrived at Hoboken yesterday from Ohio, laden with dressed carcasses of lo steers and 113 boeep-all as fresh, pure, and sweet a. on the day they were killed. They came, by waj of Ptttsburg, Harrisburg, and the Morris and Essex Railroad, and were tour days on the passage. The- ice in the car, of which about one ton is required, had to be renewed only once during the trip, and the tem- perature remained, with slight variation, during tile whole distance at 45 deg. Famenbei^, The ccEsrRs. tion of the car is such that a current of air passes con- stantly through the masses of ice at either end, and thence through the body of the car containing the meat. The humidity of the atmosphere is condensed by the ice and at the same time cleansed from all impurit ej, EOtL.il when it comes in contact with the meat it is dry, culd" and pure, thus securing the three essential iccuisites for the preservation of meat. Large numbers of people visited the car at Hoboken yesterday, and the opinion was unanimous that the invention had proved itself u success.—JSeiv Joris Times, Aug. 22.
