Capture of Bushrangers

The Melbourne Argus

13 August 1847

The bushrangers that robbed the mail beyond Albury, on the 23rd July, were cuptured by the Wagga Wagga Police, who are stationed at the Wadonga on the Murrumbidgee. Sergeant O'Niel and his party from the Murray were close on their trucks, and within an hour's ride of them when captured.

The mail horses and some of their trappings have since been recovered by the assistance and honesty of some shepherds of Mr. Heriot.
