Murder of Timothy Murphy
The Sydney Herald
30 September 1841
By a letter just received from the Tumut River, we learn that that indefatigable gentleman, Commissioner Bingham, after having scoured the country so far as the Lachlan, has at last succeeded in apprehending and placing in secure custody three men, who are supposed to have been concerned in the murder of Timothy Murphy, at the head station of Charles Tompson, Esq., on the Murrumbidgee River, on the 19th July last.
We have had occasion, more than once, to notice Mr. Bingham's extraordinary zeal and activity in the public service, as well as his strict attention to the duties of his important office.
